"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.

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
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
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!

The trailer and three clips from Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of
War. "Taegukgi" is the story of two brothers who are
unwillingly drafted into the South Korean army following the
outbreak of the Korean War in June 1950. The older brother
(Dong-gun) strives to protect his younger brother (Bin) on the
battlefield while struggling to find a way to have him discharged
so he can return to their village and care for the family they
left behind. However, as the war progresses, the horror and
violence they witness begin to take its toll on each man and
severe their bonds as brothers and soldiers. Featuring large-scale
battle sequences and an intimate and complex look at the social
consequences of the Korean War on its country and people, "Taegukgi"
offers a unique perspective on "The Forgotten War", which
permanently divided a nation and turned friends --and families--
into sworn enemies.

REMARKS BY RUDOLPH GIULIANI WELCOMING REPUBLICAN DELEGATES DEEP
INTO THE HEART OF GODLESS PINKO LIBERAL SODOMITE HELL
RESEARCHERS are seeking FDA approval of a new pill that would mean
only one trip to the bathroom per year. Unfortunately,
these researchers are employed by Weekly World News.
Prosecutors will ask for Kobe dismissal - with a catch:
- "Prosecutors have agreed to dismiss sexual assault charges
against Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant with one big catch -
they want the right to retry the case at a later date". If I
were defending him, I would strenuously object to this request.
It obviously means the prosecution knows they can't win the case
now, and Kobe has the usual right to a speedy trial without
having this crap hanging over his head indefinitely. Therefore,
the D.A. needs to shit, or get off the pot.
- For me the big question raised by this trial is "how can
America retain competent prosecutors?" We have seen time and
time again how public prosecutors, basically civil service wage
drones, prove to be neither honest nor competent. Yet these
people have the burden of proof against a rich celebrity who can
afford a battery of the country's best lawyers. How can our
legal system ever convict such a celebrity? I'm not saying Kobe
is or isn't innocent. But if he is innocent and the prosecutors
knew that because their own expert witnesses were telling them
so (as seems to be indicated in this case), then they shoud have
dropped the case and issued Kobe a public apology, instead of
trying to hide the evidence from the defense. And if he is
guilty, the best lawyers in the world should be working
full-time to convict him. How to we get to the point where we do
one of those two things?

Five clips from the new thriller, Paparazzi. "They are
chroniclers of Hollywood glitz and glamour, and key players in the
public's insatiable appetite for information and photos about
their favorite stars. They seem to never sleep... hunters who
trail their prey the show business elite at all hours of the
day and night. They are as much a part of gala premieres as are
the bright lights and red carpets. And their photos can make or
break a career. For rising action superstar Bo Laramie (Hauser), a
quartet of paparazzi is at first an annoyance, then an
ever-disturbing presence. But when they threaten his family's
safety, it will be the last mistake they ever make. Bo seems to
have it all: a beautiful wife, an adoring son and a Malibu beach
house. Life couldn't be better. But his newfound fame comes with a
price. He's become a target of a team of four paparazzi bent on
making Bo and his family fodder for the tabloids, to nearly
ruinous effect for the Laramies. The paparazzi and their weapons
of choice high-powered zoom lenses stalk Bo everywhere. He
accepts the typical invasion into his privacy... until photos of
his wife, Abby, and his son, Zach, begin appearing on covers of
one particularly sleazy tabloid called Paparazzi. All efforts to
convince the photographers to spare his family are ignored, and
when Bo has a fight with one "superstar" paparazzi, Rex
(Sizemore), the actor is sentenced to anger-management therapy
while Rex walks away unpunished. The Paparazzi paparazzi become
increasingly relentless, ruthless even criminal. One night,
while trying to get "the shot," they force Bo and his family into
a high-speed car chase that ends in a terrible accident, sending
Abby into intensive care and 6-year-old Zach into a coma. Veteran
Los Angeles police detective Burton (Farina) believes Bo's version
of the accident, but when Burton can't make the case against the
photographers, Bo seeks vengeance on his own. And the paparazzi
start falling... one by one."

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

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.
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.

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

GOP CONVENTION DAY 2: ARNOLD & TWINS & STRIPPERS, OH MY!
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
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
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
He did ask a lap dancer to get on her knees, but only so they could
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
ANONYMOUS TOILET PAPER DONOR
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
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.
FARRAH'S FACELIFT PRESSURE
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.
