"Unlawful Entry"

Unlawful Entry (1992) is an urban paranoia Crime/Thriller. Imagine that someone in authority wants to destroy you and take your wife. Kurt Russell (nightclub developer) and his wife Madeleine Stowe are having an evening at home when someone breaks into their home. To escape, he holds a knife to her throat. The police arrive, in the person of Ray Liotta, LAPD, and his partner. When Liotta arrives the next day and installs a security system, they see the beginnings of a friendship.

Russell decides to go on a "ride along" with Liotta. At the end of the shift, Liotta takes Russell to bust the burglar that broke into his house, and offers Russell the chance to beat him senseless. When Russell declines, Liotta does it for him. Russell, realizing that Liotta is deranged, tries to break off contact, but Stowe, happy that the creep is off the streets, doesn't agree. Once Russell convinces Liotta that he really doesn't want him around, Liotta tries to ruin his life and claim Stowe for his own.

Whether or not the plot works for you depends on your acceptance of the fact that Stowe would side with Liotta, who she just met, over Russell, who she supposedly loves and has known a long time. When Russell tells her what happened during the ride along, she wants to be convinced, and he essentially tells her to just shut up and avoid Liotta. This, to me, justifies her going against Russell. No wife wants to be told what to do, or that her husband doesn't care what she thinks. There also seemed to be issues between them about his being a workaholic, and having kids.

Liotta is brilliant as the bad guy. Russell did a credible job, although I didn't really feel his claustrophobia as Liotta tightened the noose. He kind of went from angry to whipped dog in one easy step.

Stowe shows her breasts in a dark love scene with Russell. Sherrie Rose also shows her breasts while having sex with Liotta in his car. IMDb readers have this at 6.0 of 10. Critical consensus was about 3 stars. It has grossed $83M includng rentals. This is a B-.

    Dorm Daze (2004):

    Both Tuna and I have discussed this lame film, thus giving it more attention than it deserves.

    Tuna did a complete pictorial review yesterday. The only new thing I have to add is that the body double for Boti Bliss was an actress named Natalie Abramov.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)

    .wmv files made by Scoop from Shiloh's .avi's.

    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 picture. When 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 altogether.



    • Roxanne Hart in The Last Innocent Man. Made for TV film with Ed Harris, directed by Roger Spottiswoode, who will do the next Mr Ripley movie ( .avi- zip) (.wmv - zip) . Roxanne is still around, now 50, still a busy actress.

    • Juliane Kohler in the award-winning Nowhere in Africa ( .avi- zip) (.wmv - zip).

    • I haven't seen the film, but based on this, the nudity in Perpetrators of the Crime is minimal. On the other hand, Tori Spelling has rarely shown anything, so even this brief, inexplicit flash may be the most you've seen of her in a movie. (.wmv - zip) .

    • Portia DeRossi in Women in Film. Is there an official record for the woman who lost her looks the fastest? You'd barely recognize her from Sirens. (.wmv - zip).


    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    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. Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    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.

    Some clips from Passion Network today. Lousy film with terrific exposure.

    First up is former Heffer Devin Devasquez. The gal was on TV, too... Star Search...winner of the "spokesperson" contest. That's a talent to be proud of. In the second Devin clip we see some Righteous sport-humpin. Now that's category I'd like to see for Star Search 2005!

    • Devin Devasquez (1, 2)

    Next up, here is Nichole McAuley in two short clips. Gal's a real looker, even though the babylons are after-market.

    And then there are a couple of clips of Chieko Shiratori in Zero Woman: Dangerous Game. Those of you who like it when gals meet gals are in for a real treat.

    Crimson Ghost
    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 the Ghost has a couple of .wmvs of Claire Stansfield. We see the 6' 1" actress topless in a sorta-sex scene from the 1995 movie "Sensation", starring Eric Roberts and Kari Wuhrer.

    "The Deviants"
    On one hand, this is clearly a sexploitation flick, since the whole movie is basically about sex and has lots of nudity (all by Tiffany Shepis), but the 2004 effort is also a cute if unlikely comedy about a matchmaking firm who specializes in people with kinky social disorders.

    The matchmakers deal with people such as the woman who doesn't want to be clothed in ANY situation, the guy who can only get aroused when he's dressed as a masked wrestler, and a myriad of other weird folks.

    The matchmakers are convinced there is a match for everyone, and as they pair people up, things get very funny. A silly, outrageous, fun comedy.

    Incidentially, Tiffany's full frontals are from the deleted scenes, and the blur boxes are theirs, not mine - as if I had to tell you that .

    Liv Tyler

    Great 'caps by's Liv in her bra, with Affleck giving her goodies a squeeze in scenes from the Kevin Smith movie, "Jersey Girl" (2004). Look for it on DVD September 7th.

    Always One Step Ahead! - President Bush came out with a classic new Bushism Thursday. Briefing Pentagon brass on his anti-terrorist plans, he said, "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

  • The mistake: that was the speech he was supposed to give to Halliburton.
  • He meant, "We need to anticipate their attacks"...At least, I hope that's what he meant.
  • Pray that the Pentagon guys know it was a mistake.

    Tourism Is Sagging - Police in Constanta County, Romania, want a ban on topless women over 60 at the Black Sea beach because they're getting complaints that it's "ugly" and may harm tourism. Police chief Victor Popescu said old women should know that "going topless has its age limit," and patrolmen on the beach say they're often sickened by the sight. One said, "It's always a pleasure to see a young woman, who also has to be beautiful of course, topless on the beach," but old topless women are "sometimes quite repulsive." He says he understands wanting to get a uniform tan, "but old women should simply give up on it."

  • Thanks to all the tanning, those wrinkled old hags are actually about 33.
  • This from guys who live on a diet of donuts.
  • They want only beautiful young topless women on the beach so they can attract lots of ugly old men tourists.
  • On this beach, the term "flip-flops" doesn't refer to sandals.

    She's Too Klingy - Pamela and Ron Smith were married in the town of Vulcan, Alberta, Canada, in a replica of the Starship Enterprise at the space-theme Vulcan Tourism and Trek Station. The "Trek" theme wedding included vows in both English and Klingon and the couple joining hands over a dagger, and ended with the minister saying, "You may now kiss the Klingon." Surprisingly, it's Pam who's the would-be Klingon; she says Ron isn't a "Star Trek" fan "at all."

  • But she told him resistance is futile, he will be assimilated.
  • Especially after she told him he has to be a Vulcan, so he'll only get sex once every seven years.
  • Of course he's not a "Star Trek" fan: he actually has a woman.
  • With all those heavy costumes and makeup, the minister told them, "Live long and perspire."

    The Misfits - Author Matthew Smith, who is working on a biography of Marilyn Monroe, claims he has obtained secret tapes of her therapy sessions that contain stunning revelations. For instance, she says that marrying Joe DiMaggio "was a mistake" because "he wasn't that interested" in sex. She also admits to a one-night lesbian sexual encounter with Joan Crawford. But she says that afterward, "I told her straight out I didn't much enjoy doing it with a woman. After I turned her down, she got spiteful."

  • Marilyn didn't like being spanked with a wire hanger.
  • Marilyn didn't enjoy it because after the sex, Joan made her clean the entire bedroom.
  • On the plus side, Joan WAS more macho than Joe DiMaggio.
  • It did nothing for her, but just picturing it is doing a lot for me.
  • All the bad movies Joan Crawford made, and she didn't film THIS?!
