Demonlover (2003) Sepcial Edition Director's Cut is being released in a two DVD set. This I what I said the first time I watched it'
"Demonlover (2003) is a landmark film. It is so pretentious and unintelligible that even the French thought it was too arty, booing it at Cannes. Most complain that it is nearly impossible to follow this film in any detail, and advise that the viewer not try. Scoopy outlined the main plot in his review, but admitted that he was not real sure of what side some of the minor characters were on. The film was partly in French, English and Japanese. Two people would be speaking alone to each other in French, then switch to English for no apparent reason. Many scenes were overly dark, especially action scenes, further adding to the confusion.
"The filmmaker had no idea where the story would go when he started the film, and I submit that he still doesn't have an idea where the story goes. The first several scenes were coherent, if overly long, then the film degraded into nonsense and confusion. Connie Nielson does show breasts and buns. It is hard to express how much I disliked this film. At no time did it capture my interest. It is only 5 hours since I finished it, and I don't remember how it ends. I guess there are some advantages to getting older. This is a very low C-."
The special edition didn't change my opinion at all, and there was no additional nudity. The special features included a lengthy interview at some college with the writer/director, and he admitted that he did know what he was trying to make when he started. He even acknowledged that he doesn't understand it even now. His aim was to make an artsy film with youth appeal, as most young French filmgoers love mainstream Hollywood stuff. A young female student actually gave a coherent plot summary. She said it was about a woman in the sex exploitation industry that became herself exploited. In that light, the ending actually makes sense. It is still, however, a nauseatingly bad and hard to follow film. Frankly, the interview was as artsy and pretentious as the film. I think my C- was a little generous in retrospect, and am lowering it to D. A little character development and plot structure would have helped, but not enough. The brief breast exposure from Connie Nielson is not worth the rental price.

KERRY LOSING SUPPORT AMONG AL-QAEDA OPERATIVES. New
Poll Contradicts Hastert's Claims
- One day after House Speaker Dennis Hastert told an audience
that al-Qaeda terror operatives would rather see John Kerry in
the White House than President George W. Bush, a new poll of
al-Qaeda terrorists shows the international terror group evenly
split between the two candidates. In a poll of likely al-Qaeda
madmen, 48% supported Mr. Kerry, 48% supported Mr. Bush, and 2%
favored independent candidate Ralph Nader.
- Wow! You'd think Nader could poll more than 2% among Arab

I know this is not especially convenient, but it

reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not

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.
'Caps and comments by Brainscan:
Psycho Cop Returns, aka Psycho Cop 2 (1993) is a movie
looking for a genre. The story of a vengeful cop set
loose in a high-rise office building at night, peopled
by child-like employees without adult supervision
(picture the Bush White House), PC2 is full of
ridiculous situations. None of them is funny. And it
is full of folks getting sent to their graves by
unusual means. None of them is scary. And it has a
demonic figure acting as a cop. He's not funny or
scary. An 0-fer-3, that's this movie.
As Beavis would say after watching Psycho Cop Returns,
"This sucks like nothing has ever sucked before." And
he would be right-- not that it is any worse than
Hitcher in the Dark, for example. How could anything
BE worse than that? It's just that PC2 sucks in ways
unique to a shop-worn, hackneyed, oft-done movie with
all the usual conventions, but without the defining
push to make it fish or fowl. Instead, it is just
It has this one extended scene, however: a scene of
near perfection. The office studs have hired three
strippers to come and do their jobs on site.
Strippers who make house calls. The three are played
by: 1) Julie Strain, in one of her early roles; 2)
Melanie Good, a B-movie actress whose legs are even
longer than Julie's and whose hooters are larger and
much more natural than Julie's; 3) one-timer,
Priscilla Huckleberry, with a body to rivals to
Melanie's. All three show off boobs and bum, although
Julie has the nips mostly covered by star-shaped
pasties (WTF?! Julie Strain covering up her breasts?
A sight never before seen by human eyes... but wait a
week and you will).
Priscilla Huckleberry is my fave. She is on screen
the longest, she is fair of face and fantastic of
form, but this was her only movie. So I have a plan.
We'll bring her back in an all-girl remake of
Tombstone. And Priscilla will play the Val Kilmer/Doc
Holliday role. And, and.. when Johnny Ringo... make
that Joanie Ringo... goes spoiling for a fight and
asks who is woman enough to fight her, we'll have
Priscilla stand up and say, "I'm your...." Naw, it
Three other women sorta show some goodies. Kimberly
Speiss gets caught bare-assed boffing in the copier
room (okay, the movie was made in the Clinton White
House), while Brittany Ashland and Cara Lee Froten
play "actresses" in a porno loop the boys are watching
when the strippers arrive. Most of their
exposure...the double B's again... is seen in short
clips as the credits role.
So I'm sorta glad I watched this movie and perhaps it
should be required viewing of all who desire to make
either slashers or comedies. Nothing like an abject
failure to teach us what to avoid.

'Caps and comments by Oz:
This is the 2002 Carrie remake. The story is slightly different and there's a lot less nudity. Angela Bettis is Carrie and, although naked, everything is hidden. The same goes for the rest of the cast. Emilie de Ravin, Katherine Isabelle and Chelan Simmons are the bitches. Michaela Mann is the next door neighbour who sunbakes topless.

Ellen Greene goes topless in Next Stop, Greenwich Village.
"Women Film Desire"
Women Film Desire is a documentary about how female directors have filmed the sex in movies, There are snatches from a variety of films, which means there's probably a lot of nudity still to cap. From the African Mossane there is Magou Seck and a woman I couldn't identify. There's a completely naked Sabine Mamou from Documenteur - An Emotion Picture. There's various degrees of nakedness in Happiness, La Cuisine Rouge and L'Opéra Mouffe. Tying the whole thing together was a naked woman with a map of the world painted on her.

CARMEN ELECTRA IS NEW GINGER GRANT
Just Sit Right Back... - The reality show version of the sitcom "Gilligan's

Except now, none of the men will even TRY to get off the island.

J-LO WON'T SING WITHOUT PRODUCTION
No Surprise - The New York Post's Page Six reports that Jennifer Lopez
won't give an impromptu concert, even for husband Marc Anthony's birthday.
She threw him a surprise party on their Long Island estate last week, but
when urged to sing, she refused because she didn't have a band and back-up
singers. Anthony ended up having to sing at his own birthday party. A
witness told Page Six, "You'll never see J-Lo unplugged."
And you sure wouldn't be able to hear her.
She won't even sing in the shower unless her back-up singers are
showering with her.
That's what she gets for throwing a party and not inviting her back-up
NOBODY NOTICES TOPLESS WOMAN IN STORE
Put It On! - Expatica.com reports that the Innova appliance store in
Berlin, Germany, held an "end of summer strip-off-prices-to-the-buff sale"
and hired a model to pass out leaflets topless in the store. TV crews set
up to catch customers' reactions, but to their dismay, hardly anyone
noticed. Some women expressed concern that she might catch cold, and one
60-year-old man said it was nothing he hadn't seen before. One newspaper
speculated that Germans are so used to nude sunbathers, topless models in
tabloids and porn on TV that a wholesome-looking but topless young woman at
an appliance store makes no impression.
Some women got excited, but only because they thought it meant women's
clothes were half off.
The 60-year-old German man sees bigger boobs than that every time he
takes off his shirt.
Proof that, deep down, people around the world are nothing alike.
Pop A Few Rounds - The creator of the world's most famous assault rifle,

best vodka under the same name. He added that the AK-47 was created to
protect Russia's borders and was patriotic, simple and reliable, and it's
not his fault people around the world misuse it.
Just like Russian vodka.
The vodka is just like the AK-47: too many shots and you're dead.
