"Les Blessures assassines"
Les Blessures assassines (2000), or Murderous Maids, is another French telling of one of the more horrible murders of the last century. Sisters Léa Papin and Christine Papin (Julie-Marie Parmentier and Sylvie Testud respectively) murdered their employer and her daughter when the two discovered their lesbian relationship. If this sounds familiar, it is because we saw the same story as Sister My Sister. This version has better production values, and traces the early history of the girls. On the other hand, it is so evenly presented and slow paced, that you don't end up investing any emotion in the story at all. The outside locations were perfect, and both lead actresses did a good job, but the screenplay was written such that the audience is never drawn in.
Sylvie Testud shows breasts and buns, and Léa Papin shows everything, including a long, well lit full frontal. IMDB readers have this at 6.9 of 10, and it won acting awards for both stars. Any story retelling a well-known incident from real life is stuck adhering to the facts, so some of what is wrong with this film was unavoidable. It scored well with the critics, and has a 93% positive overall, and 100% positive from the top guys. It would be hard to criticize this film without comparing it to Sister My Sister, and such comparisons are never fair. Judged on its own, it is a well made film, but one that is more of a history lesson than an emotional experience. C.
"Kickboxer 4: The Agressor"
Kickboxer 4: The Agressor (1994) is a true sequel to the first three in that they have a common hero and a common villain. This time, Sasha Mitchell has been in prison, framed by Kamel Krifa, who has become a major drug lord in Mexico, has kidnapped Mitchell's wife, and holds an invitation only kick boxing match at his compound. The DEA springs Mitchell on the condition that he enter the match and kill Krifa. The rest of the film is evenly split between the fights, and simulated sex.
Jill Pierce shows breasts twice, first, trying to seduce one of the fighters, and later, after having sex with him. Two blonde unknowns also show breasts and buns in a sex scene. IMDB readers have this at 3.4 of 10. While the location wasn't as exotic as many in the genre, the production values were much better than usual, and there were more fights and fighters. On the negative side, the fights had a certain sameness to them and became boring quickly. This is a C-, as a barely adequate kick boxing flick.

For Finnish films it's difficult to find an online store that ships
internationally. Maybe this will change when more titles come
available, maybe not. For now the only online store that I know is
(shipping to Europe, not sure about other areas) and their site is
mostly in Finnish too so ordering can be tricky... But by sending
them email things have worked out before. You will find contact
details under the title Yritysinfo on top of the page. See also

Women who have cosmetic breast enhancement surgery
may have triple the risk of suicide compared to other women.
The article is headlined, misleadingly, "Breast Implants Increase
Suicide Risk", which is an incredibly dense conclusion for a
science site. I am no advocate for implants, but obviously, there
is no cause/effect relationship proven. A more likely conclusion
would be "women who would like breast implants are three OR MORE
times more likely to commit suicide than women who would not
consider the operation" - and that would be true whether they
actually get the implants or not. Both a desire for breast
implants and suicide reflect a dissatisfaction with their existing
life. In fact, you might argue that the breast implants may
actually make it less likely that those women will commit suicide,
to the extent that their self-image is improved.

Old Hitler Article Stirs Debate:
"A fawning 1938 article by Homes & Gardens magazine about Hitler's
Bavarian mountain retreat remains widely available on the Web,
even after the discoverer and original poster of the article took
it off his site when the magazine demanded its removal. The
article depicts Hitler in glowing terms, such as the "Squire of
Wachenfeld," and extols him as a talented architect, decorator and
raconteur who "delights in the society of brilliant foreigners,
especially painters, singers, and musicians."

I recently picked up the "Collector's Edition" of the 80's classic, "Amazon Women on the Moon". Of course most folks know how much we love that movie here, but I have put the "collector's" part in quotes because in this case, it doesn't mean squat.
Yes there are deleted scenes...but they were primarily scenes that deserved to be deleted.
Yes, there was a short collection of outtakes...but they were not funny. (although there was some extended nudity by some unknowns)
Other "features" included original theatrical trailers, and assorted lanugage options, but no commentary or worth while previously unseen footage. All in all, nothing deserving the 'special' title.
Now back to the movie....
A quick recap: The movie is a collection of skits that mostly poke fun of movies and television. There are a few skits that are "real life" bits, but those aren't as clever as the movie/tv parodies. For the most part, the skits are presented to the audience as if we are watching TV and channel surfing.
Although some of the sketches are now a little out of date, there are still some parts of this movie that always crack me up, even after 16 years and dozens of viewings. In particular...the "Bullshit or Not" sketch offering the theory that 'Jack the Ripper was actually the Loch Ness Monster' (1,
2), and of course the funniest parts of the movie...every time we see my hero, Don "No Soul" Simmons!
Another fun reason to watch this...a whole mess of celebs are in this flick. At the time of filming, some were kinda famous, some were old classics, and some would become really big later on in their careers.
Here's a list of some of the stars of the movie:
Arsenio Hall, before "Coming to America" and "The Arsenio Hall Show"
Monique Gabrielle, not long after her spread in Penthouse
Michelle Pfeiffer, before she really hit it big
Joe Pantoliano, long before "The Sopranos"
David Alan Grier
Rosanna Arquette, just after "Desperately Seeking Susan"
Steve Guttenberg, even though we usually make fun of him, he was big star back then!
Robert Picardo, pre-"Voyager"
Ed Begley Jr., at the time he was on one of TV's biggest shows, "St. Elsewhere"
Kelly Preston, at the time, just a starlet and not yet Mrs. Travolta
Ralph Bellamy, not long after starring in the Eddie Murphy/Dan Akroyd/Jamie Lee Curtis hit, "Trading Places" (1983)
Howard Hesseman, at the time, Dr. Johnny Fever was starring in the popular TV show "Head of the Class"
Corinne Wahl, 3 time Pet of the Month and one time Pet of the Year
Andrew Dice Clay, just before the Diceman really hit it big.
As mentioned above, two Pets along with a couple of unknowns were topless. Monique Gabrielle also gave up the other 2 B's, and Sybil Danning added a bunch of cleavage.

|From Señor Skin....New this week on DVD, a couple of artificially large breasted babes in scenes from the Dustin Hoffman/Edward Burns/Rachel Weisz box office dud "Confidence". Ruben is topless while giving a lapdance and Sheffield shows off her robo-hooters in a completely see-thru top.
Ruben can currently be seen in theaters in "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star". Sheffield has done a couple of other B-movies like "Cheerleader Massacre" and can also be seen on the big screen in the new George Clooney movie "Intolerable Cruelty".
By the way, both of these ladies have something in common...they both did guest spots on one of my favorite TV shows, "Son of the Beach".
