"Boogie Nights"

New Line Cinema released a Platinum edition of Boogie Nights this week. There are so many extras, the had to put it on 2 DVD's. What there isn't is any additional footage. They cover claims that it was digitally remastered for this addition. It may be true, as I was able to produce larger images than my early attempt. The deleted scenes were much clearer than they were in previous editions.

This film has been discussed to death here, but let me say that this might well be Burt Reynolds best performance ever. The first image is a composite tribute to the film. I also covered the exposure from Julianne Moore and Heathr Graham, including the deleted scene.

    "Any Given Sunday" (1999)

    Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday (1999) presents a very graphic look at professional Football, and the people who inhabit that world. As I have never ben in that world, I can't vouch for the accuracy of the portrayal, but it had the ring of truth. What I can vouch for is the power of this film. We open with Al Pacino as the coach of a team whose playoff hopes are dimming after three straight losses, and his first and second string quarterback are seriously injured in the same game on back to back plays. Their third stringer has had virtually no pro experience. The owner (who inherited the club from her father) is a very aggressive young lady who does not usually agree with the coach.

    First, the few bad points. There are too many characters for me to really keep track of, and at 2 hours and 32 minutes, I was ready for it to end. The plot 's true brilliance is that it balances the in-depth character development of a character driven drama with the action of the football games. Some of the story is spoon fed, but the film also causes us to experience and learn for ourselves much of the football world. I can't think of a single flat performance, the film had pace throughout, and the production values were top-notch. Pacino and Diaz were especially effective in their roles.

    I don't even want to speculate on what we are seeing between Elizabeth's legs in the first image, but it is fascinating to think about.

    Words and pics by Stone Cold...

    Scoop, part two of the magazine round-up. This month's Femme Fatales is all about Hammer Films, and the women who started in them old vampire movies with the wax teeth and cleavage and British accents. There's a lot of small B&W pictures of unknowns, quite a bit of flesh, and a shitpot of info. I'm not into those old Christopher Lee movies, but if anyone is, they should buy this issue because it has everything you ever wanted to know about those mofo'n movies. Plus the issue about double the normal size with pictures and interviews wirth the stars and directors and shit. Good issue, if you into old wax teeth movies.

    The one woman I did scan was Ingrid Pitt. I figger she was a big star by those standards, because Femme Fatales talk about Ingrid Pitt the way the tabloids talk about Brad Pitt.

  • Pitt (1, 2, 3)

    Last month's Femme Fatales was more like their usual content, which mean lotsa debutante buffy sugars with big plastic guns and shit.

  • Glori-Anne Gilbert
  • Griffin Drew (1, 2)

    One thing I learned in months of scanning this magazine for yo page. This sugar got the most respect in the b movie industry. Everyone talk about her natural acting, and her easy ways, and her great body, and her fresh face, and all that shit, so I guess she the Helen Mofo'n Hayes of shit movies. I still don't know who the fuck she is, but everyone like her, so she mus be da bomb.

  • Jillian McWhirter (1, 2)

    Celebrity Skin got four that I liked.

  • Tara Reid in public.
  • Natalie Appleton in public
  • Stella McCartney in public. I like to ask this suga if she can listen to Silly Love Songs without throwin up n shit.
  • Mary Louise Parker in Let The Devil Wear Black

    Vanity Fair had a lot of skin by their standards. I didn't see anything worthwhile in the Paltrow pictures, although she look fine, but there was this shit:

  • Paris Hilton Rich girl from the hotel family, already famous party girl with a attitude, want to be some kinda actress 'n shit. (1, 2, 3)
  • Kidada Jones. Minor league actress model, but interesting because her pappa Quincy Jones, and her mamma the blonde from the original Mod Squad.
  • Elle Just doin' shit, and not naked. I shouldn't have fucked around wid it, because the colors were all fucked and arty, but I liked the pose.

    Finally, I forgot where I got this shit, but here's Hilary Swank and you can see her glutes under a skirt.

  • Tomcat
    Here's what I think you've all been waiting for, TomCat's round-up of the Polish sitcoms. I know a lot of you have suffered from cutbacks on the part of your cable operators, and have lost several of your Eastern European sitcoms and soap operas, so we'll bring you back up to speed.

    You know the sad thing is that there is a little nudity and bawdy stuff in Polish sitcoms, and we have virtually none in the USA.

    "The Thirteenth Precinct" is kind of the Polish "Barney Miller" or "Night Court". The wacky side of law enforcement, and an ideal place for loonies to gather. Lovely, fresh-faced Aleksandra Wozniak the source of the titillation.

    "Any Given Sunday" (1999)

    I suppose there are two kinds of sports movies.

    Category one tries to extend beyond sports, using the sport merely as a backdrop for a deeper story, or as a metaphor for the human condition. In this category we may find some fine movies like Field of Dreams, The Natural, He Got Game, and Bang the Drum Slowly.

    Then there is Category Two, sports movies that just try to capture the essence of the sports story - the personalities, the crowds, the fun, the rhythm, the striving and often failing. In this category, we have some fine films like Hoosiers, and The Color of Money. I believe that Any Given Sunday is the best movie ever made in this category, and is the one movie which has lavished the most raw artistic energy on the poetry of the game. Brilliant direction, top actors.

    Oliver Stone, as we all know is full of it. Technically, he may be the most talented director that ever lived, but he's still full of bullstuff. He is not capable of seeing anything without distorting it severely through the prism of his own prejudices and paranoia. When people agree with his biases, they tend to like his films. People with equally immoderate opposing viewpoints hate Stone only slightly less than the Antichrist.

    But the world of football is perfect for Stone's distortions, because it's already a bizarro world full of people who intentionally hurt other people, corrupt unethical doctors, greedy owners, drugged-up players, coaches who want to win at all costs, self-promoting media leeches, millionaires who can't write their own names, fierce emotions, and crazies who love bruising physical contact with other crazies. And then half of the games hinges not on what happens on the field, but on the exact inch where an official spots the ball, or whether another official calls pass interference. If ever there was a human activity suitable for Stone's talents, this is it.

    First of all, it isn't possible to be paranoid about Pro Football, because no matter what bizarre delusion you dream up, it's probably true somewhere in the league. Even Oliver Stone can't be paranoid in this world, cuz you ain't paranoid if they really are following you.

    In addition to being immune to Stone's weaknesses, the game is filled with elements suitable for Stone's strengths. Intensity, frenetic energy, constant heroics, and a dreamlike carnival atmosphere. Bingo, here comes Stone and his MTV fast cuts, pyrotechnics, sound effects, and black humor.

    See this film, know the game.

    On the other hand, I don't especially recommend watching the DVD. Hope you get a chance to see it in the theater someday, where the hits will make you cringe.

    Here are a couple of updated collages of noted classical actress Dame Elizabeth Berkley from the DVD, as well as some anonymous fancy lass.

  • Dame Berkley (1, 2)
  • Any Given Babe

    This movie has the strange distinction of being the only film I can name where Elizabeth Berkley isn't the worst actor in the film. In fact, she isn't even in the bottom five. The minor parts include cameos from Johnny Unitas, Dick Butkus, Barry Switzer, Oliver Stone, and Charlton Heston.

    On the other hand, there were some very powerful performances delivered by other guys, from both the jock side and the actor side, and the overall cast was quite strong. The leads were quite strong, and among the minor characters, I especially liked football legend Jim Brown as the defensive co-ordinator, and real-life hall of famer Lawrence Taylor as an aging legend.
