Diabolique (1996) is a pathetic remake of the French Film Les Diaboliques (1955). It features Sharon Stone (who received a Razzie as worst new female star for this performance) as a conniving girlfriend, and Isabelle Adjani as the wronged wife. Adjani married Chazz Palminteri, who rules her boarding school, and terrorizes her, with equal tyranny. Meanwhile, his mistress (Stone), who teaches at the school, plots with Adjani to kill him. Adjani, however, has a weak heart, which is the basis for a double-cross.

Ajdani is such a whining wimp that I wanted to kill her myself and put her out of her misery. Palminteri gives new meaning to the term flat performance, and Stone's character is less than one dimensional. The film is dark and fuzzy throughout, and I found myself not caring about the plot at all. This is another case of a PG film with an R rating. Adjani is shown briefly in a steamy bathroom, mostly from the back. There is a little public hair, and one stretched nipple. I tried this once from VHS, and decided it was not worth the effort. Although they did an excellent job of giving the DVD the look and feel of weak VHS, I was able to grab a few images that are recognizable.

"What Planet Are You From"

What Planet Are You From (2000) starts off as an over the top SCI-FI comedy (or at least tries to), and sort of meanders into a romantic drama. There are some lovely women, some real talent, and a few funny moments, but it is an often slow, and mostly incoherent film. Garry Shandling plays an alien who is given a short course on the seduction of the earth woman, then sent to earth with an added penis, to impregnate a woman as quickly as possible. This is all in the interest of intergalactic expansionism. We are never told how a mixed-race baby causes the annexation of Earth, but that is a minor flaw for this film. Transit is accomplished through the toilette of an airliner in flight. Shandling starts hitting on women from the moment he leaves the john.

He has been given a cover as an investment banker, and a co-worker (Greg Kinnear) takes him under his wing and tries to get him laid. After hitting the strip club, he takes Shandling to the ultimate babe-mart -- an AA meeting. There Shandling finds the woman of his dreams --Annette Bening. You can see her at the AA meeting in image one with great pokies. At one point, Kinear's wife, Linda Fiorentino tries to seduce Shandling, and she also comes into the bank in a white fishnet outfit that is hot, even though little flesh is exposed. Shandling also has sex with a stew ... excuse me, flight attendant played by Samantha Smith.

This isn't a bad film, it is just sort of a nothing film. I have a hunch some of the best footage was left on the cutting room floor by the fact that sub-plots start, then just sort of go away. Better editing might have made for a much better film, and they should have gone all the way with either comedy or romance.

Johnny Web
"Knightriders" (1981)

Knightriders is a terrific independent film directed by George Romero, the " ... living dead" dude. On the surface it is simple. A band of modern itinerant performers re-enacts the jousts of the Arthurian legends, except they compete on motorcycles rather than horses. In addition to the jousting, they have chosen to maintain the trappings and live by the code of honor of King Arthur. Their traveling act is gradually becoming popular with a wider audience.

The modern commercial world invades their little road show. Promoters want to take them big-time, make them a Vegas act, give them a slick facade, and spiff up their costumes and promotions. Disco music replaces the madrigals, some of the knights pose for magazine covers, etc. The movie is about how the situation gets resolved.

The movie works on at least three allegorical levels. On the one hand, it shows the deterioration of their ideals in the same way the original Camelot fell. In another sense, it parallels Romero's own mixed feelings about selling out his indie ideals to make Hollywood pictures. And finally, it chronicles the failure of the hippie ideals of the 60's, which were gradually co-opted by the mainstream media and culture, until the symbols remained, but the spirit was dead.

It's not too bad as an action-adventure, either, with some pretty good jousts, which appear to be halfway between actual jousts and the chariot races in Ben-Hur.

Plus four different women showed some flesh, and three of them were lookers. Maureen Sadusk, however, I might have done without.

It's a unique and worthwhile picture that is must viewing for serious film buffs. I liked it more this time than when I first saw it. I recommend it with only one major hesitation. It is about two and a half hours long, and it doesn't really have enough content to drive that much screen time, so there are some long static sections.

Notwithstanding the running time, it is a reasonable contender for the title of "best independent film ever made". Patricia Tallman (1, 2) Amy Ingersoll (1, 2) Amanda Davies Maureen Sadusk

Annabeth Gish See-thru nipple peak from "Wyatt Earp". Probably the only good thing about this Costner movie.
Barbara Williams Topless vidcaps from "Oh, What a Night". I haven't seen this one, so I shouldn't jump to any conclusions, but check out this cast...Corey Haim and Keir Dullea. Now there is a power duo! This movie was made around '91. The other Corey was having some trouble with the law at he time, so I guess he wasn't available to turn this into a zany comedy, chock full of nutty hijinks. Instead, you have "Dave" from "2001". Who is right up there in Al Gore territory when it comes to wooden personalities!

New topless 'caps from "The Beach". These are a little dark, but I'm sure we'll be seeing more vidcaps in the near future.

'Caps of the "Mission Impossible 2" star from 1996's "The Leading Man". Here we have two collages with Thandie gettin' it on with Jon Bon Jovi. #1 has some breast exposure, and #2 surprisingly highlights a more southern portion of her anatomy.

Jennifer Jason Leigh Here's a flashback to 18 years ago! It's really hard to imagine that "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" is that old! This movie truly defined the early 80's, and introduced the world to one of the most memorable characters ever put on film.....Jeff Spicoli! The epitome of the perpetually stoned, California surfer dude!

Once in a while when I leave the computer and head down to the beach, I run into guys in their 40's and 50's who really are the Spicolis of the world. I haven't decided if it's horribly pathetic, or truly unique and wonderful that some people live their whole lives stoned and always looking for the perfect wave.

The Funnies
Dear Mrs. Jones:

We have found your daughter, in Africa of all places. However, it is unknown how she got here, nor is she able to talk because of lockjaw, but we are under the impression that she does not want to leave. We have tried for several days to bring her back home, but she is insistent of staying here with her discovery. I have enclosed a picture for you to show you that she is okay, and not let you worry because she is in good hands in this Village.

Please contact us if there is anything else you might want to know.

A good laugh

One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Jack says to Mike behind him, "My elbow hurts like hell. I guess I better see a doctor." "Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money," Mike replies. There's a diagnostic computer at the drugstore on the corner. Just give it a urine sample and the computer will tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. It takes 10 seconds and costs $10.00... a lot cheaper than a doctor."

So Jack deposits a urine sample in a jar and takes it to the drugstore. He deposits ten dollars and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits. Ten seconds later the computer ejects a printout:

You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks.

That evening, while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Jack began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and masturbated into the mixture for good measure. Jack hurries back to the drugstore, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits the results.

The computer prints the following:
1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. 2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo. 3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab. 4. Your wife is pregnant...twin girls. They aren't yours. Get a lawyer. 5. If your don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better.

There's a pretty cool site,, which has quicktime movies of many popular commercials. I don't recall seeign the Fox ads, but the site is still worth a look if you're into that kind of humor. Plus the Fox Sports ads might end up there eventually.
