"Friday the 13th Part 3"
Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982) is the third in this franchise. Yet another group of teenagers are on their way to Crystal Lake for no apparent reason other than to have sex and get murdered, and Jason, again, for no apparent reason, obliges. Like episode two, the film starts with a recap of the ending of the previous episode, followed by some comedy attempts, then the bloodbath. Nudity was much less this time, with only Tracie Savage showing breasts in a shower scene.
IMDb readers have this at 4.2 of 10, and box office didn't recoup the estimated $4.5M budget. This was an attempt to make a Friday 13th formula film with little or no effort to embellish or entertain. This is a D. While it is technically decent, there is no "there" there. It reminds me of the "gonzo" style of adult tapes, which are an endless series of the old in and out. Here, we have murders, and not much else.

The Theater Counts for this week. New films: Team

Bullet 100, others below 50.
- This week's movies (NY/LA only):
The Final Cut - 40% positive reviews. Split opinions.
Some people found it engrossing.
- Positive: (1) "For a movie that often feels like it's
cobbled together from pieces of Minority Report, Blade Runner
and other futuristic odysseys, this one is weirdly engrossing."
(2) "A thinking person's picture whose only flaw is that the
movie is never quite as good as its fascinating concept."
- Negative: (1) "No re-edits can save The Final Cut from its
own preposterousness and lack of genuine thrills." (2) "If there
are decent, human, post–Good Will Hunting roles for the actor
somewhere between the manic and the catatonic, Robin Williams
hasn't found them."
- This week's movies (NY/LA only):
Being Julia -65% positive reviews. "Features a
magnificent central performance by Bening to go with its engaging
and raucous storyline."
- This week's movies:
Shall We Dance? - 33% positive reviews. "Exemplifies
its distributor at its most blatantly opportunistic -- plundering
the recycling bin for a no-brainer cash-in."
- This week's movies:
Team America: World Police - 60% positive reviews. "A
delightfully vicious film that’s bound to piss off everyone."

"to my utter amazement, my newest children's book -- the sweetest

'obscene' by angry, vocal readers who just don't get it"
- "The book is called "The Boy Who Looked Like Lincoln," and
it's about an 8-year-old who looks exactly like Honest Abe: He's
got the hat, the mole, even the beard. The unhappy boy is sent
to a summer camp for kids who look like things: toasters,
bowling pins, the Titanic. In the end, he learns the valuable
lesson that looks are not important; it's your character that
counts. This doesn't explain why supermodels make so much more
than schoolteachers, but hey, it's just a kids' book."

Three clips from Birth, the controversial movie with
Kidman and the little kid.
- The official release: "A metaphysical love story that
explores the space between what we know and what we feel. Kidman
stars as Anna, a delicate young widow who is on the verge of a
new life when a solemn little boy appears, claiming to be the
reincarnation of her dead husband. As Anna, Kidman achieves a
breathtaking emotional transparency to portray an intelligent
woman who discovers another side of herself in the face of a
bizarre, yet tantalizing possibility. The actress is beautifully
paired with Canadian child actor Cameron Bright, who portrays
the boy interloper with a haunting stillness and conviction.
Bringing an assured sense of style and form to a decidedly
unconventional narrative, Glazer creates a world that is at once
strange and familiar, like a fairy tale. Like many fairy tales,
"Birth" is part romance, part mystery, and part family drama -
woven into a magical whole about love, mortality and the

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

play women of relaxed morals, but she didn't do a lot of nudity, so

I've never seen this movie, and want to, but it's never made it to

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 Eric Roberts flick "Stiletto Dance". One of the 10 movies he made in 2001. Actually, for a direct-to-vid Russian gangter/undercover cop movie, it isn't a bad watch. Plus, there is some decent nudity.
- French-Canadian actress Lucie Laurier gets nekkid in a couple of sex scenes as well as in a body painting scene. Mostly we see breasts and parital bum views, but there is a brief glimpse of the 3rd B as she spoons with Roberts.
- Lucie Laurier zipped .wmvs
- Another French-Canadian actress, Anne Nahabedian, shows her breasts in a spirited sex scene. (zipped wmv).

SONG MAY COST SIMON COWELL $90,000
Hate Parade - Simon Cowell may have to pay 50,000 pounds ($89,550 US) to
Paul Holt, a rejected contestant on Cowell's new British TV talent show,
"The X-Factor." Cowell said Holt was so bad that if he ever got a record
deal and had a #1 hit, Cowell would give him 50,000 pounds. A record
company quickly signed him to cut a novelty song called "Fifty Grand For
Christmas," in hopes everyone who hates Simon will buy a copy. British
bookies now have Holt's as the sixth favorite record to be #1 on Christmas
The odds-on favorite to be #1: "A William Hung Christmas."
The five in front of it are all novelty songs about how much the singer
hates Simon Cowell.
If everyone who hates Simon Cowell buys a copy, he'll have 50 MILLION
