Johnny Web (Uncle Scoopy)
A History of Violence (1973):

The DVD screener for this is now floating around the 'net, with the ID code blurred. I haven't watched the movie yet, although I want to, but I thought it was worthwhile to waste no time before looking at Maria Bello nekkid! Here's the clip (a zipped .wmv which I actually converted from somebody else's .mpg because the aspect ratio needed correcting).

and here are the 'caps...

Maria Bello


Today we have 2 clips (1, 2) of Barbara Lerici in Sleepless aka. Non Ho Sonno (2001), one of Dario Argento's better efforts of the last years.

There is a thorough review by Scoop of this film in the Movie House and Tuna also presents his view. As I can agree with both, there isn't much for me to add here except the following two things:

  1. The poor English dubbing problem doesn't arise when you watch the movie in its original Italian version with subtitles like I did.
  2. Dario Argento could have chosen a better looking woman than Barbara Lerici for the full frontal nude scene. It's not like there is a shortage of beautiful women in Italy, is there?


 That's all for now.

Yours faithfully,

Today we go back with the Time Machine to the eighties for a "Babe in Bondage" scene from "Fair Game".

The lovely Cassandra Delaney, ex-wife of John Denver is tied to the front of a pick-up truck stripped and tormented by a nasty trio of baddies. In the end the "Damsel in Distress" gets her revenge.

Crimson Ghost
First of from the Ghost today...a little bit o' Skinemax. Here is the very cute, blonde and surprisingly non-robo-hootered adult actress Monique Alexander doing the softcore thing during an episode of "Hotel Erotica".

Next up, from the "Classic Cleavage Collection". Here is Raquel Welch from back in her shirt busting prime. Scenes from "Lady in Cement" (1968) and "The Three Musketeers" (1973).

'Caps and comments by Dann:

"High Tension"
High Tension is not just the title of this 2003 French horror/thriller; it's an apt description. This movie starts at 120 mph, and never slows down. Neither does the blood and gore.

Alex brings her friend Marie home from school for a weekend of seclusion at the family's country home. During the first night, a mysterious man in an old van invades the home, kills her parents and younger brother, and abducts Alex. Marie was able to hide and avoid detection, so now it's up to her to save Alex.

This thing is non-stop action and suspense, with a real surprise ending. The DVD has an English soundtrack so English-speakers won't have to worry about sub-titles, but this is an extremely bloody and gory movie, so those with a weak stomach should probably take a pass....which is too bad because this is a very cool flick.

In theaters now! Many thanks to LC for serving up this frontal nudity by Maria Bello in a scene from "A History of Violence".

From Marvin, master of all things Scandinavian, here is Lone Gersel going topless and getting shaved down under in scenes from "I tyrens tegn" (1974)

The Skin-man takes us back to 1990 to visit with a long forgotten genre...the mega-lo budget, sword and sorcery movie. Here are a couple of barely known babes that didn't do much else in their careers beyond gettin' nekkid for these scenes in "Time Barbarians" (1990).

For genre purists I will say that this is no Deathstalker, etc. The difference is that rather that a nerd being transported back in time to the days loincloths and sheep skins, in this one the muscled up sword toting hero is transported to Los Angeles...kinda like in "Beastmaster 2", only not as well done.

  • 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 Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
  • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

Sunday baseball: Clemens came out of the pen to seal the lid on the Braves in an 18 inning marathon.

  • Turns out I was right and wrong - right to be worried about Brandon Backe, who got lit up like the White House Christmas Tree, but wrong to think it mattered. The remaining Astros showed why they are the best pitching staff in the game. In the last ten innings, the 'Stros relievers gave up no runs on four hits and struck out 12.
  • By the way, the rosters were so depleted that Clemens entered the game as a pinch hitter - for the only time in his career.

Weekend Box Office Results, October 7-9, 2005. Not much change from Friday's report.

  • The chixploitation flick, In Her Shoes, disappointed.
  • As I predicted Tuesday, the lowbrow comedy, Waiting ..., did far better than expected.
  • The film I never heard of, Gospel, totally kicked ass. It averaged $8200 per screen compared to $4400 for the week's #1 film, Wallace and Gromit (which exceeded expectations, by the way.)
  • If I were a filmmaker and had no aspiration other than profit, I'd be making a devout, inspiring prequel to The Passion of the Christ. Call it The Birth of the Christ and open it on Christmas 2006.
  • Oscar hopeful update: Clooney's Murrow movie raked in $38,000 per screen, but was only on 11 screens. Capote pulled in $17,000 per screen on 24 screens. They both made the top twenty!
  • Overall, the week was down about 10% from last year, which had the blockbusting Shark Tale at the top and a strong opening from Friday Night Lights.


Oswalt baffled the Braves; the mighty Cardinals bade farewell to the Padres.

  • By getting swept, the Padres finished the season with 82 wins and 83 losses, making them the only losing team ever to play in the post-season, and giving them a worse overall record than the Washington Nationals, who finished LAST in the East.

Despite this, he has managed to achieve recording success and Gates feels he can match that success."

The United Nations to take over the internet?

  • Politics and chauvinism aside, I have one good reason why this should not happen. Scoop's Law. Here it is in a nutshell: "Whosoever criminalizes the free expression of ideas must NOT be placed in charge of a medium designed to promote the free expression of ideas."
  • The U.S. is the only major country which passes the litmus test, maybe the only country period. The scaremongers have been making arguments against giving control of the internet to Iran and Zimbabwe. Forget those monsters. I would not trust free speech in the hands of Germany, Canada, and the U.K! They have all supported policies that declare their citizens free to say only what the government allows them to say. Don't get me wrong. This is not a chauvinism issue. I have lived in six different countries, and worked in more than two dozen, and I think that many countries are better than the United States in many ways, but defending the right to freedom of speech is not one of them. When governments ban "hate speech," it means that they assert a fundamental principle: that governments have the right to restrict free speech in some way. I don't know if that principle is good or bad. Perhaps it is good that governments tell you what you cannot say, although I tend to doubt it. I do know that the assertion of governmental control over speech, whether good or bad in the absolute, disqualifies the asserter from control of the internet.
  • The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says, "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech." NO law. PERIOD. When the U.N. and its member countries adopt the equivalent of America's First Amendment, they can be placed in charge of free speech. And if America repeals or modifies the First Amendment, then you can argue that control of the internet should be taken away, and I will support you.
  • That is all.
