"Sex & the Other Woman"

Sex & the Other Woman (1980) is a British sex farce in four vignettes. The subject is cheating husbands. In the first, a new husband of eight months starts a new accounting job, and immediately becomes an object of attention to the office femme fatale, who has a thing for young married men. She almost has it off with him in the lift, and finally tricks him into an office after hours. They dress hurriedly when the cleaning woman arrives. Things get dicey when his wife discovers her knickers in his jacket pocket. Peggyann Clifford as the wife shows breasts. Jane Cardu as the other woman shows everything, including a rather nice pair of natural breasts.

In the second installment, Maggie Wright is searching for a rich sugar daddy. She finally finds the man of her dreams, but with one small problem. He is married. The two are ultimately discovered by the wife, who divorces him. They don't live happily ever after though, as the money all belonged to the wife. Wright shows everything.

Tomorrow night, the remaining two episodes and the rest of the review.

    Among Giants (1998)

    I have not seen the movie. It's somewhat controversial in that it features full frontal and rear nudity from both Rachel Griffiths and Pete Postlethwaite.

    Boa vs Python (2004)

    Because of a smug rich playboy seeking the ultimate big game hunting thrill, there is an 80 foot python on the loose in America.

    The FBI rushes into action.

    Since this is a movie, and a grade-B one at that, there are only three possible ways to combat a giant evil male snake.

    1. Find a mad scientist who has raised a giant mongoose.

    2. Find a mad scientist who has raised an even larger, GOOD female snake.

    3. Two words: giant flute.

    There were no giant snake-charming flutes available or, for that matter, any other practical oversized instruments. The FBI agent did briefly consider having some Swiss guys try to charm the snake with a giant Alpenhorn, but that plan fell through. Nor were there any giant mongooses available (or mongeese, as the case may be). In fact, the critical mongoose shortage almost emptied America's cinema snake armory, leaving our poor land nearly defenseless against giant film snakes, and making the dreaded "giant good snake" option seem immensely attractive. Luckily, there are always plenty of those. In fact, the FBI agent's most difficult decision was choosing only one of the many "giant snake scientists" listed in the Yellow Pages. The agent ended up doing the same thing I did when I needed a locksmith - calling ACME, the first one in alphabetical order. Acme Scientific did happen to have a female tracking snake available, and the FBI happened to employ someone who specialized in planting navigational and tracking systems in giant snakes, so the hunt for the evil snake was on.

    Actually, two hunts were on. The zillionaire playboy guy had not given up his personal dream of killing an 80 foot reptile, and he still had a bunch of buddies who wanted a shot at the big evil snake as well. These guys basically made G. Gordon Liddy seem like the sensible dad on Father Knows Best. One of them wanted to face the snake down with a crossbow, and another wanted to take the snake on with his bare hands. The playboy himself eventually went after the snake armed only with a flamethrower and a cigar. The cigar was his sense of style, you see. He's the kind of guy who, when mortally wounded, has to pick up the stogie and stuff it back in his mouth so he can die lookin' macho. Then, just as one of the snakes was about to chow him down, he said "I hope you choke, bitch".

    That last sentence, which was not embellished in any way from what really transpired on film, should give you the idea that this film doesn't take itself seriously, which is just as well for a movie about giant good snakes and bad snakes. A lot of the dialogue was funny, and the whole thing was played out for comic book laughs.

    It has jokes and naked chicks, and giant creatures. The only thing wrong with the film as a "guilty pleasure" film is that the special effects are just not good. The snakes don't look real either in isolation or compared to humans. Since the film was lacking any kick-ass effects, a lot of the exposition was done by characters looking at a computer screen, watching the tracking device which was implanted in the good snake, and commenting on the action. "Oh, no, look, your soldiers are in trouble."

    Frankly, though, I'm just not sure we should set the CGI bar too high for a low-budget STV movie about giant snakes. It's just about as good as you'd expect from a movie called Boa vs Python. It isn't very scary because of the weak CGI work, and it doesn't really click at the highest levels with humor and characterization (like Hellboy for example), but it meets the basic requirements for genre nuts who just have to see all the giant creature films. I managed to stay awake and never fast forwarded, and at least two of the characters (the super-serious FBI agent and the incredibly rugged and macho playboy) made me laugh out loud!

    • 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.

    Words from Scoop.

    .avi's from Shiloh.

    .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.



    • Shiloh very rarely repeats any material, but this is Susan Blakely's famous beaver shot in Capone, and Shiloh got a better version of it. Actually, this first one is a very short outdoor scene. (.avi zipped) (.wmv zipped).

    • This one is Blakely's famous open-leg shot, repeated several times!! Long download, but a good scene. (Ben Gazzara is pretty good as Capone, and Blakely is -- well -- very exposed.). Prior to Capone, I can recall no instance of an actress in a mainstream movie spreading her legs on camera. Even today such a thing is rare. (.avi zipped) (.wmv zipped).

     ... and one more from Shiloh

    • Anna Friel in Rogue Trader. I've never seen this flick, but I think Anna is smokin'. (.avi zipped) (.wmv zipped).





    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.

    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 from the Ghost...a few vids (zipped .wmvs) to compliment Tuna's review and 'caps from the Skinemax flick "Forbidden Zone Alien Abduction" (Tuna's goodies can be found in the August 31st update in the Daily archives)

    • Alina Chivulescu, breasts and a little bit of bum. #1 features plain old exposure, links 2-4 feature subtle views during a sensual massage. (1, 2, 3, 4)

    • Darcy DeMoss, the 80's and 90's B-movie regular shows toplessness in a sorta-bathing scene.

    • Floriela Grappini, very brief frontal nudity, plus some nice breast views.

    • Floriela Grappini and Meredyth Holmes, both briefly topless (Grappini shows more skin)

    • Meredyth Holmes, plenty of breast exposure in these slow moving "erotic" scenes. (1, 2, 3)

    • Pía Reyes, the former Heffer (November '88) bares breasts in a love scene.

    • An unknown actress going topless and showing rear nudity.

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    Another waste of an excellent cast, this 2004 crime thriller forgets that it's not enough to have plot twists, they have to be UNPREDICTABLE plot twists. Lots of reused ideas from other thrillers do not a good movie make.

    Jessica has strong motivation to be a great cop. Her father was a cop, but he also turned into a serial killer, and in the end killed her mother and himself. Jessica wants to fight crime to put right his wrongs. She gets herself promoted to Inspector, and things are going fine until a series of killings point to her as the prime suspect. For one thing, she'd had one-night stands with each of the victims. For another, she was falling-down drunk right before each of the murders.

    The ending is twisty, for sure, but the movie just falls flat from beginning to end, saddling a good cast with a badly done script. Still, Ashley Judd looked nice enough, considering she was supposed to be badly hung over during most of the movie.

    Charlotte Ross Ross' nekkid bum, and almost a whole lot more in scenes from an episode of "NYPD Blue".

    Meagan Good Showing a bunch of cleavage in the lame motorcycle version of "The Fast and the Furious", "Biker Boyz" (2003). Laurence Fishburne was the big name star of this flick. My guess is that he was either bored of "Matrix" stuff and needed to work on something different, or perhaps he simply took home a big ass paycheck.

    Carmen Electra
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)

    A few 'caps from her "Aerobic Striptease" workout video. No skin, but Carmen stripping is still a pretty good thing to see.

    Julia Montgomery
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

    Colleen Madden
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)

    The Skin-man takes a look at the 80's comedy classic, "Revenge of the Nerds". Both ladies are topless, and Madden is the babe they are spying on when Booger says his famous line "we've got bush".

    Pat's comments in yellow...

  • A must see news story from! I fell over laughing when I saw the pics!

    Arnold Speaks English? - Tuesday at the GOP Convention, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger extolled America's opportunities, noting that he couldn't even speak English until he was in his 20s. He praised President Bush as a strong leader who can "terminate terrorism," said the Democratic Convention was like "True Lies," and brought down the house by saying, "To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say: Don't be economic girlie men!"

  • Where else but America could a guy who can't act get a standing ovation for stealing an old "Saturday Night Live" joke?
  • Apparently, the only English Arnold knows are his movie titles.
  • Bush is Arnold's idol, because he became president and still can't speak English.

    Just Be Yourselves - Twins Jenna and Barbara Bush made jokes about "Sex & The City" and other topics that were borderline for Republicans. Fans said they were cute, fun-loving and appealing to young viewers. But critics said they seemed a bit "ditzy."

  • So don't vote for them for president.
  • Well, they have their mother's looks and their dad's third grade sense of humor.
  • Any young men who'd watch the Republican Convention to see Barbara and Jenna probably weren't even listening to the jokes.
  • Arnold says he'd still rather grope them than John Kerry's daughters.

    Where Were The Journalists? - The New York Times reports that lap dance clubs hired extra strippers for the Convention, but the clubs are virtually empty. Monday night, the Penthouse Executive Club expected a flood of delegates, but there were 40 strippers performing for two regulars and three delegates from Indiana. One dancer said a delegate from North Carolina bought her two drinks but was so uncomfortable, he wouldn't even dance with her. He told her, "I'm very conservative, my friends made me come here."

  • He did ask a lap dancer to get on her knees, but only so they could pray.
  • Here's another area where Bill Clinton created far more jobs than Bush.
  • Club owners must've thought the Democrats were coming to town.
  • The only people in the bar who were even drinking were Barbara and Jenna.

    A Chamin' Gift - York, Pennsylvania, councilman William Lee Smallwood complained about a $25 million deficit in the police and fire pensions by griping, "We can't even afford toilet paper." So some Good Samaritan decided to help: a case of toilet paper was left at City Hall with a note signed from "A Friend." The mayor took the gesture as a practical joke, but when asked what the city would do with it, he said, "What do you think we're going to do with it, decorate the trees?"

  • They already decorated a lot of tree leaves, when they were out of toilet paper.
  • A REAL friend would've given two-ply.
  • He would've given the city $25 million, but the politicians probably would've gone through that like toilet paper.

    It's Just Unnatural - Farrah Fawcett told David Letterman that she was at a Hollywood dinner party and an unnamed male celebrity told her that everyone thinks she's had a facelift, when she was really the only one at the table who hadn't. She thought it was a compliment, but then he said that seeing her upclose, it was obvious she hadn't had one and asked why not. The startled Farrah said she wanted to age naturally so she could perform her "Driving Miss Daisy." The man asked, "Now?"

  • So she did a performance she calls "Driving My Fork Into Your Eye."
  • At that, Farrah's face fell.
  • In Hollywood, if you don't do "Driving Miss Daisy" in your 50s, you're considered too old for it.
