"Two Girls for a Madman"

Two Girls for a Madman (1968) is an early roughie from Something Weird Video, and is far from their best release to date. The entire thing is narrated over a bad jazz track, The acting is seriously over the top, and the plot is a joke. Two friends are both ballet students. Tony France is a serious ballet student, but rather shy and lives with her mother. Jean Weston is a party girl, not quite 17. They both attract the attention of the same demented rapist.

France shows breasts in a shower scene. Several unknowns show breasts and buns when Weston ends up at an orgy. We also have breasts and buns from unidentified ballet students. This is a terrible film. Even as a genre lover of early soft core, it was painful to watch. E.

    Gotham (1988 - cable):

    On the surface, Gotham is a film noir detective story. A man walks into the office of a down-on-his-luck private eye, spins a story, details don't seem to make sense, but the detective takes the job and lowers his shoulder to the wheel.

    The beginning of Gotham is very similar to the beginning of Vertigo. In Vertigo, a rich guy hires a detective to follow and possibly protect his wife, whose body seems to have been taken over by a dead women. In Gotham, a rich guy hires a detective to find out why his dead wife his following him. In both movies, the detective was hired to tail a ghost.

    The great difference between the two films is that Vertigo respects the rules of the genre, while Gotham does not. In Vertigo, as in almost all such noir films, we understand that there must be an explanation for the apparently supernatural and nonsensical details which confront the detective. If we just hang on to our grasp of the possible, we will soon solve the case along with the shamus. If the story is a really great one, the writer and director place key clues right in front of us, so that if we are particularly alert, we may even solve the crime before the detective does. When the curtains were pulled back in Vertigo, there were no ghosts and there were no sets of mysterious women who looked exactly alike. The ghosts were fictions, sleight-of-hand created as part of the usual greedy insurance scam. And the reason the two women looked exactly alike is that they were, in fact, the same woman. The detective was hired specifically because of his fear of heights, which was incorporated into the scam when, at a certain point critical to the scheme, acrophobia prevented him from following the people he was supposed to be tailing. The mystery had a perfectly logical explanation.

    Gotham, on the other hand, chooses not to play by the rules and conventions. In this film, the reason everything seems to make no sense is because everything really makes no sense. It does no good to hang on to our sense of the possible, because the solution is impossible. The guy's dead wife really is following him. He buried her in her jewels, as per her request. Year later, he needed the jewels, so he exhumed her body, removed the jewels, then re-interred the body. This ticked her off mightily in the afterlife, and she came back for her damned jewels. The detective is simply caught in the middle of their feud. To make matters even more confusing, the private eye is not only tailing a dead woman, but is having sex with her, and falling in love with her.

    It is easy to become irritated with a film which uses such cheap tricks. You can't derive any of the usual pleasures offered by mystery films, because there is no mystery. Unlike most detective films, where everyone is lying and nothing is as it seems, requiring the detective to untangle the web of deceit, everything in Gotham is exactly as it seems. A guy says he's being followed by his dead wife, and that's exactly what is happening. It isn't a detective story at all. It's a ghost story.

    I suppose you just have to accept what the film throws at you and see if any of it works for you. Tuna didn't really enjoy it that much, but I thought it worked in a lot of ways. It has a lot of atmosphere, a touch of poetry, plenty of cynical dialogue, and a bravado femme fatale performance from Virginia Madsen, who was slim and sleek, and filled out the spiffy wardrobes in magnificent fashion.

    This is a movie that may appeal to you if you like something which is off the beaten path.

    Haven't seen it. The critics hated it, but I have one positive thing to say about it:

    .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.


    Private Lessons

    Sylvia Kristel, the original Emmanuelle, in a film where a 15 year old boy gets a crush on her. This movie was made in 1981, so I suppose 1983's My Tutor was the copycat. Whatever else you say about this film, you have to love any film that co-stars Emmanuelle and Dr Johnny Fever. 



    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.

    'Caps and comments by PAL:

    "Double Threat" (1993) was aired recently, and with in such good quality that I couldn't resist doin' the 'caps!

    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 takes a look at the 1988, lo-budget, T&A, sci-fi comedy "Dr. Alien".

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    One of the strangest movies I've ever seen, and one of the sexiest, this 1988 drama is kind of a Mike Hammer in The Twilight Zone.

    A loser private detective is approached by a client with a fairly simple request: he's being stalked by his ex-wife. Persuade her to leave him alone. When the PI discovers the wife died 10 year ago, he figures his client is a nutball and a source of easy money.

    Things escalate when he contacts the wife who is indeed the same woman that supposedly died 10 years ago. Is she a ghost or is there another explanation? And will things become more complicated when the PI falls in love with the (maybe) dead wife?

    A gritty, classic "down and out PI" film, very sexy, but with a strong Twilight Zone flavor, some great nudity by Virginia Madsen, and an ending that will leave you scratching your head.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Learn Your Craft, People! - Frank Abagnale Jr., the famous con man-turned-crimebuster whose story was told in the movie "Catch Me If You Can," sent an e-mail to Fox News' Neal Cavuto. It read, "If my forgeries had looked as bad as the CBS (Bush National Guard) documents, the movie would have been titled 'Catch Me In Two Days.'"

  • Actually, it only took bloggers two hours to catch them.
  • Is Neal Cavuto SURE that e-mail was really written by Frank Abagnale?

    Do Aliens Really Speak Klingon? - Germany's state-run radio is now broadcasting a show in Klingon. A spokesman said it was to emphasize the station's philosophy of multicultural, intergalactic openness, and it "should help users from other galaxies get an impression of Germany." It's so popular, they're adding Klingon to the existing 30 languages on their web page.

  • It will give aliens the impression that Germans are big nerds.
  • Wasn't there enough spit on the microphones when they were just speaking German?

    Lawyer Action Figure Sold Separately - Reality TV is coming to the toy store: on the premiere of the new season of "The Apprentice," the two teams competed to create a toy for 6-year-old boys. The women's team won with the "Morph Machine," a remote controlled car that comes apart when it crashes and is easily put back together. Mattel liked it so much, they plan to have it in stores by early 2005 at a price tag of $30.

  • All the profits will go to benefit Donald Trump's favorite cause: Donald Trump.
  • It comes with its own little toy insurance policy.
  • Of course it will be re-named "The Trumpmobile"
  • The mens' team created a wind-up Donald Trump that walks around firing Ken and Barbie.

    One Riot, One Ranger - Texas Rangers relief pitcher Frank Francisco was arrested Tuesday in Oakland, California, for aggravated battery, after he threw a plastic chair into the box seats during a brawl over Oakland A's fans who had been yelling abuse. It hit a man in the head, bounced off and hit a woman in the temple, breaking her nose. The woman was not identified, other than that she was married to a man who'd been heckling the Rangers.

  • And that this is the last time she lets him pick the place they go for their anniversary.
  • So a Texas Rangers pitcher can't even throw a chair and hit the right person? That explains the Rangers' record.
