Dangerous Prey


Dangerous Prey is a lesser offering from Lloyd Simandl, the master of Czechsploitation films. It stars Shannon Whirry, who plays a stunt woman staying in Europe. When her boyfriend is rousted by the police for terrorism, she is also arrested and convicted of something or other. On her way to prison, a secret group springs her, takes her to their laboratory, and starts training her to be an assassin. She has aptitude and attitude. Shannon and her new partner (Kiara Hunter) are given lethal remote-controlled implants to control them, and are led to believe that once they perform a successful mission, they are free. Shannon figures out quickly that nobody has ever gone free.

There is a reasonably hot sex scene with Whirry at the start, but the assassination scenes are not exploited, and there is too much time spent chasing around through the usual familiar corridors of Simandl's studio. Fans of Shannon Whirry, Kiara Hunter and Lloyd Simandl may want it in their collections, but even they will be hard-pressed to find much to enjoy, and the film is not recommended to others outside those groups.

It has never been released in the US on DVD, but is available from on a Region 0 Dutch release in English with Dutch subtitles.

IMDb: 3.8

This is the film to see if you've dreamed of seeing a remake of Casablanca with Pamela Anderson as Rick. Pam flashes her robo-hooters. Several of these are from the special features section.

Britney's bald beaver

The first and third one are variations of the same picture. The smaller one is sharper and has no obnoxious watermark.



No flesh, but nice to look at. Warning: the bikini pics are big-ass downloads, as large as some film clips.

Dial: Help

An evil telephone (really, who hasn't had one), falls for a model, Charlotte Lewis (with the way she looks here I can understand a phone coming to life) and starts killing everyone related to her. When the phone is not killing the people by itself, it hypnotizes them and makes them commit suicide, and there is no escape from it, since it controls every telephone out there.

Beware of the ring, ring!

For a golden oldie, how's 1985's comedy Tomboy, with well-endowed Betsy Russell and Kristi Somers? It's a typical 80's sexy teen comedy, but hey, it does make you laugh, if only from some of the lame lines.

Betsy Russell plays Tommie (the only name they used in the film), a tomboy mechanic who rides a motorcycle and whose passion is building and driving racecars. Her hero is racecar driver Randy Starr, who races for the local team owned by a rich spoiled-brat type who inherited the team from his father. Oh, and he's called Junior, which is real original.

When she eventually meets Randy, they of course fall in love, but because of her competitive nature, they also wind up racing one another. I'll let you guess who wins.

Dumb and lame, but still funny, maybe because of it's lameness, and there's some gorgeous and large natural hooters floating around this flick, so if nothing else, it's a capper's classic.

Jimmy Carter is blasting the way President Bush is handling Iran.  He
told Boston's WBZ-AM that Bush should be doing more talking and diplomacy.  Referring to the diplomats held captive by Iran for 444 days of his administration, Carter declared, "We still maintained diplomatic relations with Iran--in fact, that's proven by the fact that my hostages were in Tehran." 

*  Jimmy Carter criticizing the way anyone else handles Iran is sort of like Britney Spears criticizing your parenting skills.

*  Asking Bush to do more talking is like asking Bjork to do more singing.

Ziji Publishing surveyed Britons to ask, "If a killer asteroid were about to destroy the Earth in one hour, what would you do?"  54 percent said they would go to or phone their loved ones.  13 percent would drink champagne and sit and wait for the end. Only 9 percent would have sex, while 3 percent would pray, 2 percent would eat fatty foods, and another 2 percent would start looting. 

*  Then they could watch the end of the world on a big screen TV.

A judge agreed to let Britney Spears have monitored, overnight visitation with her kids one night a week.  Her lawyer is now pushing to have Britney's mom appointed as the monitor. 

*  Great idea!  Who knows more about how to raise kids than the mother of Britney Spears? 

The Institute of Motion Analysis and Research in Dundee, Scotland, could find no substantial difference between cheaper running shoes and those costing over $150.

* Except the really expensive ones tended to be worn by stupid people.
