3-Way (2004) is a direct to vid thriller. Dominic Purcell is a broke sign painter living in a filling station with his girlfriend, Joy Bryant. He is a man with a past, and is in hiding. One night while putting up signs on the highway, he overhears a couple plotting to kidnap then kill the man's rich wife. Purcell decides to kidnap the wife a second time and get the ransom money. Things are complicated when a man from his past gets in the middle of everything. What follows is a serpentine series of twists, turns, double-crosses and apparent double-crosses. While the plot can be a little hard to follow in parts, that doesn't detract from the story.
Ali Larter shows brief buns as the female half of the kidnap team. Joy Bryant, as Purcell's girlfriend, shows breasts in a shower sex scene, and Roxana Zal, as Purcell's dead ex wife, shows breasts in a flashback. IMDb readers have this at 4.4 of 10. That is a little harsh, as this is a decent genre effort with no glaring plot holes, and no irritating mis-direction in the script. This is a C. Genre lovers will not be disappointed.

of the Dead' still debuted relatively strongly."

Interestingly enough, neither has a green card in hell, so satan

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
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
Melanie Griffith - in The Garden. (.avi zipped)(.wmv zipped) I haven't
seen this Israeli movie, but the official summary is as follows: "An
old man tends his garden under the threat of encroaching
urbanization. In wanders a beautiful tourist, dazed and naked after
a sexual assault, and he mistakes her for an angel." This is the
only film ever directed by Victor Nord. It is the only film ever
written by Yosef Avisar. It is in Hebrew!
That's the bad news. The good news is that the naked
angel/tourist is Melanie Griffith, aged 19.
I know this film must be atrocious, but I would love
to see it on DVD because - well, you know why.
This is kind of a Canadian version of a typical
Hollywood coincidence-driven noir. Tuna and I didn't exactly split
on the film.
We both though it was OK, but
he liked it more
than I did.

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.
Today the Ghost takes a look at the 1984 T & A comedy, "Hot Dog... The Movie".
- Crystal Smith...the former Heffer (September '71) looking fantastic and showing all 3 B's.
- Crystal Smith zipped .wmvs
- Shannon Tweed...baring her big'uns (there are also a couple of near miss frontal views). This movie came after her crowning as Heffer O' the Year (1982), but before she became the queen of direct-to-video erotic thrillers.
- Shannon Tweed zipped .wmvs. Two scenes are featured here. Links 1 and 2 are my favorites...not so much for the nudity (which is pretty good) but more so for the soundtrack! We see Tweed gettin' it on to "Hungry Like the Wolf"! Why is that cool? Because this isn't some retro "Remember the 80's" tribute...this is the real deal! A movie made in 1984 with Duran Duran playing during a love scene! Rock On!

"Paradise Falls": Season 2, week 2
After a three year wait Kim Poirier finally showed her boobs.
But as for seeing female frontal nudity we're still waiting
for Booger's revenge-of-the-nerds "We got bush!" moment.
"Ginger Snaps III" (2004) aka "Ginger Snaps Back"
This prequel is the third and final installment for the series.
Released straight-to-video after a brief run on the festival circuit.
Alot more blood and gore but a lot less skin and sex.
"Black List" (1995) aka "Liste noire"
French-Canadian movie about judges boinking hookers in Quebec.
Sex scenes of hidden video footage shown on a lower resolution

"A Killing Spring" (2002) (TV)
The hottest Joanne Kilborn series starring
Wendy Crewson. But the DVD transfer left alot to be desired.
"Bye, See You Monday" (1979) aka "Au revoir à lundi"
Another Carole Laure movie, another boobie shot.
In her more recent directorial effort "CQ2 (Seek You Too)" (2004)
Carole directs her 20 year old daughter Clara Furey (daughter with
Lewis Furey) whom is following her mother's footsteps
by having her first nude love scene.
Immortal: episode Wired
Episode starring the Ginger Snaps star and the
recently late Michelle Skalnik who nearly stole
the movie "Kitchen Party" away from Laura Harris.
Night Man: episode Spellbound
Every tv series should have such an episode as this.
A Catholic girls school with a coven of young witches.
(20) Amber Rothwell: sexy and tied up as naughty student. That's Crystal
Buble and Jody Thompson with her.
Tamala Jones: partial boob, bra-less pokies.
Patrice Goodman: cleavage.
"Turn It Up" (2000)
A gangsta rappa movie.
Third Wave: episode Mata Hari
Sci-Fi series and one of the episodes to show nudity
but again this is the syndicated version so nothing is
"Exception to the Rule" (1997)
Just to clear things up. Heather Hanson credited as
"woman in strip club" did not play the stripper
who still remains uncredited and unidentified.
"Cheerleader Ninjas" (2002)
And another thing. I don't think the head naughty cheerleader
played by Alissa Shanley was in the lesbian fantasy scene.
Something about one of the star trek geeks being a brother
of one of the lesbians.
It would have created a plot hole big enough to collapse
the trekkie universe.
