* Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

* White asterisk: expanded format.

No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Chained Heat


Chained Heat (1983) was one of the last great exploitation classics, WIP division, and is one of the best of the genre. Unfortunately, it has gotten chopped in every DVD release to date. Specifically, there is a heavily cut rape scene with Dean Wormer and star Linda Blair, and some lesbian content seems to be missing from the shower scene. Frankly, if we didn't know about the missing footage, we would never miss it, because even in the edited version it is a WIP classic.

Linda is a "new fish" being transported with several other women, having been convicted of murder based on a traffic accident. This has put a damper on her interior design classes, and she is having self-esteem trouble. She makes friends with Sharon Hughes, who promises to teach her prison survival skills. The warden, Dean Wormer, and his stooges are having a problem. Someone is cutting into his drug trafficking, which is getting in the way of his boffing and taping the inmates. He has pressed Monique Gabrielle into service as a snitch. The rival gang is led by the captain of the guard, Stella Stevens, who sells drugs to inmates, and pimps inmates to private parties. Prisoner Sybil Danning leads the white prisoners and works with Stevens, while doing battle with the black faction led by Tamara Dobson. This is the world Linda Blair timidly enters, but she finds she must get tough to survive.

Sybil Danning and Linda Blair show breasts in a shower scene. Many other women do full frontal and rear in the same shower scene. Sharon Hughes also shows breasts in the shower scene, as well as in a Jacuzzi with Dean Wormer. Monique Gabrielle does full frontal and rear with Dean Wormer.

IMDb readers say 3.5, and LInda Blair received a Razzie nomination for Worst Actress, while Sybil Danning won for Worst supporting actress. I am completely unable to explain this score or the Razzies. Danning was perfect, Blair was adequate, and this is an excellent WIP classic. I can only assume that in 1983, mainstream audiences had no interest in exploitation. The film holds up well and is a quick watch.

This is a C+.

Tombs of the Blind Dead

More horror today as the Time Machine goes to 1971.

Britt Nichols is a "Babe in Bondage" who winds up topless and gets cut up with swords before the creeps suck on her blood. Not a family movie.


Lone Fleming shows breasts as she is raped.

Some bonus caps to break the mood, from "Chuck's Cherubs."

No nudity but nice cleavage from Cameron Diaz

Das Wilde Leben


The film focuses on the life of Uschi Obermaier, the icon of the 1968 movement in Germany and groupie. At the age of 16, Uschi is bored by her job in a photo lab, but soon becomes the "it girl" of Munich's club scene. When she gets to know Rainer Langhans, they move to Berlin and live in "Kommune 1", the first politically-motivated commune in Germany. While the other occupants claim she isn't political enough, Uschi just wants to have fun. She starts working as a fashion model and has affairs with people like Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones.

Here are a great number of captures from the movie, Natalia Avelon is a hottie, and so was the real Uschi Obermaier (there are some captures from her too). Uschi lives now in Santa Monica and is a Jewel designer.

Scoop's note: tons of film clips in yesterday's edition.

You won't care if you don't speak Maya (and who does?), because you'll quickly forget the sub-titles, and become totally engrossed in this wonderfully done 2006 action/adventure. Director Mel Gibson and crew deserve all the nominations and awards that this movie got. It is excellent.

Set during the time of the decline of the Mayan kingdom, a tribe of hunter-gatherers is attacked by a Mayan war party intent on capturing slaves and victims for sacrifice. They destroy the village, and kill everyone they feel unsuitable for capture, but one of the men, Jaguar Paw, manages to hide his wife and child in a deep hole before being taken away.

The film then follows Jaguar Paw's experiences during captivity, and his wife's struggles to free herself from the hole.

This movie is just fantastic, entertaining from beginning to end.

That Asia Argento is one weird chick

Lydie Denier??? I didn't even know she was still in show business. Here she is in a 2005 movie, about a decade since her last nudity. I wouldn't have known who it was without the caption!
