Garage Days (2002) is an Australian film that focuses on a Sidney rock band fighting for their big break, which they decide means landing the right agent. Several of the group are less than faithful about whom they sleep with, and one members girlfriend ends up pregnant. Another is a big doper. All have dead end day jobs. The key to whether or not you will enjoy this film is how much you enjoy spending time with the main characters. It was made on a shoe string budget of only $6M, but looks very good.
Natalie Jane, as a stripper, shows breasts and buns. The credits list a body double/stripper for her, but I believe the stripper was used for full speed pole work, and all the images below are really Jane. Pia Maranda, as the bass player, shows a breast in a sex scene. Yvette Duncan shows breasts after bathing in red dye #2.
IMDb readers have this at 5.7 of 10. Ebert mentioned correctly that this film is really more about the scene than about this particular band, but enjoyed it and awarded 3 stars. Throughout the entire film, we never get to hear the band play. Unfortunately, the DVD packaging ruins the surprise ending. However, as the film is really more about the scene than about the band, that is not too serious a problem. This is a C+. If it is your kind of film, it will be a fast 105 minutes.

Taking Lives (2004):
I already reviewed this in depth, and spoiled it (since the
explanation made no freakin' sense). Here is the comments page.
The point of bringing it up again here is that the unrated DVD
includes a longer version of the Jolie-Hawke sex scene. These
clips are available in .avi format only (need latest version of
DIVx). Tuna and I will have DVD collages soon.
Part 1 - same as in the rated version, but this is much clearer
and superior quality to previous clips. avi zip, wmv zip
Part 2 - just a quick, but clear close-up shot of Jolie's chest. avi-zip, wmv-zip
Part 3 - a somewhat longer and much clearer version of Hawke
mounting Jolie on the table avi-zip, wmv-zip
Part 4 - this is all new material which you have not seen. Hawke
carries Jolie to the bed, throws her down (breasts clearly
visible), and mounts her. Although this is supposed to be
"unrated" material, it is a tame, bullshit sex scene since Hawke
leaves all of his clothes on and pretends to take the ol'
wienerwald out of his zipper instead of actually removing his
pants. (If you want to see a great Jolie sex scene, rent Original
Sin and check out Jolie and Banderas - now THAT was good fuckin'
These collages are made from the video clips, not from the original
source. (They aren't so very bad, but the DVD will kick ass in

NOTE: because of a unique combination of
circumstances with the Windows media player and some substantial
bandwidth theft, we will have to do all of our movie files in zip
format. Left click on the files as you normally would to view a
you get a choice, click on "save", and put it on your hard drive in
the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there.
I know this is not especially convenient, but it
allows the film clips to continue. I can protect .zip files from
hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some
reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not
play in the Windows media player, and I can't get a satisfactory
work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this
new policy allows you to continue getting the movie clips you want
to see, which is much preferable to my abandoning the clips

Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble
with the codecs for these movies:
FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use
DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use
virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the
vids says the video codec: DivX Decoder Filter & audio
codec: Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with.
When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG
Layer-3. A friend of mine told me about compressing the
audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been
capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this
info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp &
asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using
camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could
never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost
too much to buy in my opinion.
A reader says:
You mentioned that some users were
having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool
designed to determine what codec is needed for a video.
http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you
or your users.
I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9.
The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in
the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly
larger, and slightly lower quality.

Naked Josh: episode The More the Merrier
This week's theme is polygamy. Unfortunately Andrew Trabet
showed more skin then the three female guest stars combined.
Bliss: episode Marvellon
Veteran actress Lynda Boyd has a lesbian sex scene with newcomer Lauren Evans.
Hunger: episode Sin Seer
Another edition from the Soul Snatcher collection.
"Against Their Will: Women in Prison" (1994) (TV)
Women-in-prison film but it's not an exploitation so there
goes the obligatory communal shower scene, lesbian guards,
and the hidden white slavery ring.
"Human Cargo" (miniseries)
This is from the first part of three parts.
"Secret Weapons" aka Sexpionage (1985) DVD
Hopelessly dated espionage tv movie
about young Soviet women being trained to seduce American operatives.
The highlight is when Linda Hamilton is forced to strip
and then the rest of the female recruits afterwards.
However the original R-rated cable release titled "Sexpionage" showed
the Canadian extras baring their breasts but the DVD release is only
Forever Knight: A More Permanent Hell
Another episode from the tail end of season two.
Forever Knight: The Black Buddha
Two part season three opener.
"The Reincarnate" (1971)
Horror film about satanism which means an obligatory
naked young female virgin is sacrificed. Stars Trudy Young
who was a popular young actress in Canada during the 1960s.
- Trudy Young: not showing much, heavy petting session.
- Bodydub: pinch hitter for Trudy Young.
"Jigsaw" (1999) DVD
Grade-D direct-to-video whose only saving grace is
it stars former MuchMusic VJ Erica Ehm in the raw.
- Erica Ehm: brassiere having sex, semi-nude in shower.
- Photo: undated photograph of a nude and pregnant Erica Ehm
which made the rounds on the internet.
NOTE: We currently have to do all of our movie files in zip format. Instead of viewing them online, save the zip files to your hard drive in the directory of your choice, un-zip and play from there.
Today from the Ghost...video clips of "xXx" co-star Asia Argento looking great and baring all in several scenes from "B. Monkey" (1998). Scoop summed it up best in his review...it's basically a Euro-version of "True Romance".

"The Human Stain"
Movies with a shock surprise ending are great, but this 2003 drama/romance takes a slow road getting there, so will probably be most liked by viewers who like deep plodding character analysis.
A well respected college professor with 35 years on the job is forced to retire when he innocently uses a word which upsets the politically correct crowd. His wife is so upset by this that she throws a brain aneurysm and dies.
Now bitter and alone, the professor takes up with a much younger woman whose life is a mess, and is being stalked by her ex-husband, who blames her for the death of their children.
At the very end, things come to a climax and a shocking secret about the professor is revealed. It takes a long time to get there, but overall not a bad movie if you can stand the pace, and some brief but nice nudity by both Nicole Kidman and Jacinda Barrett make it a little more interesting.
