"Ted Bundy"

Ted Bundy (2002) is a reasonably accurate depiction of the man that the term serial killer was invented for. One of the odd things about him was that he was clean cut, good looking, and most people found him charming. In fact, that is how he lured most of his victims to where he could rape and murder them. Even while on death row, he had letters from at least 200 women who wanted to marry him.

At the beginning of the film, we see his anger towards women gradually escalate from "peeping Tom" to brutal murder. His girlfriend, played by Boti Bliss, never caught on that he was strange, even when he handcuffed her to the bed and ask her to pretend like she was dead to excite him. She shows breasts in two sex scenes, and several victims shows various body parts. IMDB readers say 6.7 of 10. It is more like a doccudrama than a character study, but they didn't hold back on the brutality. If the subject of serial killers interests you, this one is worth a watch. C.

    Flashdance (1983) was well-named, in that it is all flash and dance, with a very weak Cinderella plot, and little character development. Jennifer Beals stars as a welder by day, club dancer by night, who dreams of being in a repertory troupe, despite never having a dance lesson in her life. Her boss sees her dance, and falls for her. Her best friend (Sunny Johnson), who works at the same club she does, dreams of being in the Ice Capades. She has her last chance tryout, blows it badly, and goes to work in a strip club. Beals goes in and drags her out in the name of friendship. Seeing what happened to her friend when she gave up on her dream, Beals gathers the courage to try out for the dance troupe.

    Beals shows most of her buns dancing, and most of a breast in down shirts. Johnson shows breasts when being dragged from the strip club, and two other strippers also show breasts and buns. They are played by Bettina Birnbaum and Deirdre L. Cowden, but I have no idea which was which. The title song was hugely popular, and won both an Oscar and a Golden Globe. US gross was nearly $95M. IMDB readers score it 5.4 of 10. Critics seem to be split on the merit of the film. It is dominated by a hard pulsing disco beat. IF that is your idea of fun, you will probably find something to like in this musical romance story. If you are like me, then disco is a little bit of what hell might be like. It is no better or worse than the other disco dance films. C.

    Next week's new DVDs:

    Nine Queens . Kind of like David Mamet transplanted to Buenos Aires. I love films with elaborate scams and stings. This is one of the best, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. No nudity, unfortunately.

    I was kind of disappointed in the DVD of The Collector, a highly respected 1965 movie helmed by Hollywood legend William Wyler. The movie and the transfer are fine, but I was disappointed because some years ago an imager named Magicman had discovered some nudity in the full-frame VHS version of this film. There is none on the DVD

    Other crap

    • I pointed out yesterday that there is one version of the Alamo story which portrays Davy Crockett as a pussy. I should have pointed out that I don't believe that version. The New Orleans daily newspaper reported that version of the story in a near-contemporaneous news account, but their story is not reliably attributed, and the journalism of that day made today's journalism seem to be as reliable as a mathematical equation.

    The Alamo accounts are split into three versions (1) Col Crockett surrendered and was executed (2) he was killed after trying to surrender (3) he died fighting, surrender never being considered. The contemporary evidence is so contradictory and unreliable that historians are not agreed on the issue of whether men were executed at all, or if so whether Crockett was among them. The battle ended at about 7 AM. General Santa Anna wrote a dispatch to Mexico City one hour later, the exact contents of which have been preserved. He wrote,

    "The fortress at last fell into our power with its artillery, ammunition, etc., and buried among the ditches and trenches are more than 600 bodies, all of them foreigners. . . . Among the dead were the first and second in command of the enemy, the so-called colonels Bowie and Travis, Crockett of equal rank and all the other leaders and officers"

    Of course, Santa Anna was not known for his truthfulness. The general was known to inflate stories to his advantage. There were fewer than 200 men defending the Alamo, and it would not have been possible to identify whether they were "foreigners" from their lifeless corpses, a mere hour after the battle. There were people of Mexican heritage among the defenders as well as the attackers. We all know that the Alamo wasn't a fortress, but a walled mission. And there probably wasn't much in the way of artillery and ammunition.

    Still, he drew no special attention to Crockett except as a passing name.

    Santa Anna was one of the most interesting, if least likeable, men in the history of North America, and I have often toyed with the idea of writing a historical novel about him. A recognizable figure from the defeat of the Spanish in the 1820's, he became the leader of Mexico, as president or dictator, on eleven separate occasions. At one time, he even led a coup against himself!! Has anyone else ever done that? As military leader, he led a military coup against the democratically elected government - and he was the one they elected! (Hey, he was shocked, shocked and appalled, to discover there was corruption in that government!)

    Although the war of Texas Independence damaged his stature, he regained some prestige (if mainly through hyperbole) in the infamous Pastry War against France in 1838 - all of which made him even more smug and arrogant than before. He continued to lead the country and/or the army, on and off, until 1853, and was still alive, living in humble circumstances, if the word "humble" could be used for this vainglorious man, as late as 1876. Major chronology.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    Some mo of Julie Lynn Cialini, former Hefmate of the month (Feb '94), in Wolfhound. Took Julie quite a while to give up the goodies on the silver screen but she more than made up for lost time. Not my fault all these are dark, for it seems that like rats and college students Wolfhounds copulate only at night.

    Julie shows boobs only in all six collages, but really nice natural ones they are.

    The third collage I've included is Kristine DeBell. A former Ford Agency model turned actress. She debuted in her only porno appearance, the classic ALICE IN WONDERLAND, and went on to do her bit in a variety of different films and shows, including the soap "The Young and the Restless". Here she is in an uncredited role in EMANUELLE AROUND THE WORLD.

    Linda Fiorentino Toplessness in 1985 movie, "After Hours", by DeVo. Somehow this thing is regarded as a 80's comedy cult classic is some circles. Personally, I think it's proof that even good directors (Martin Scorsese in this case) are not exempt from making pure pig crap.
