Hair (1979) is the screen version of the 60's "Folk rock love musical," directed by Milos Foreman. The IMDB summary, in this case, is hard to beat. "Claude leaves the family ranch in Oklahoma for New York where he is rapidly indoctrinated into the youth subculture and subsequently drafted." Berger is the leader of the hippie "tribe," and Claude falls in love with Sheila (Beverly D'Angelo), a rich girl who is ready to turn from her uptight lifestyle.
D'Angelo shows breasts, swimming in central park wearing only panties. We see her undressing, and then after getting out to discover that her clothes have been hidden. Everyone knows a few songs from this musical, including The Age of Aquarius, and Hair, but I find most of the songs entertaining. When my wife and I married, and merged our record albums, Hair was the only record we both had. Those who have been around the Fun House for some time might remember that I captured this DVD early in my career. With a serious shortage of new material, it is about time I revisited some of my early efforts, and I am sure you will agree that the new images are a vast improvement.
IMDB readers score this 6.7 of 10. It was nominated for a Golden Globe for best picture (comedy/musical). It scores 100% at Rotten Tomatoes. With the genre being musical, this one reaches beyond the genre, and will appeal to anyone with an interest in the 60's, so the proper score is B-.
Final Analysis (1992) was nominated for three Razzies, including worst actress (Kim Bassinger), worst film, and worst screenplay. So, with bad script, bad movie and bad acting, what is there worth your time? Kim Basinger's breasts in an extended sex scene with Richard Gere! Gere is a psychiatrist who falls in love with the sister of one of his patients, who is married to a gangster. After that it is a pretty standard thriller plot, where the patient is actually the healthy sister. This is another redo for me, as it was an early project, the images were not wonderful, and I am a huge fan of Basinger.
IMDB readers say 5.5 of 10. Ebert awards 2 1/2 stars, criticizing the complexity of the plot. This seems to be the critical consensus. While I love a great thriller, I tend to be very critical of lesser ones, and this was a chore for me, but the proper score is probably C. A good enough thriller for those that like them.

The Sidewalks of Bangkok is
a rare Jean Rollin film with no supernatural elements. (And no lesbian
vampires!) It's an international superspy movie, and it's bad, but there's plenty of womanflesh.
I knew some interesting stories about the filming of this movie, so the review
might be a decent read.
- Yoko. She may be the smallest adult in our nudity database. I estimate
she's 4'6", maybe 80 pounds. The average-sized women tower over her as
you would tower over a 9 year old.
- various other women of all shapes, sizes, and races.
Besos para todos is, more
or less, a coming of age story about three medical students who end up with a
house full of ... um ... very experienced women. The linked review is Tuna's.
- Chusa Barbero, the Spanish Virginia Madsen.
- Emma Suarez, the Spanish Kim Cattrall. Actually, Emma looks nothing like
Kim, and is about a decade younger, and yet she gives off exactly the same
Las razones de mis amigos
translates into English as "A lot more dinners with Andre". Old friends get
together to eat and talk, and eat. And talk.
Hey, Scoop, I heard Leelee
Sobieski did a movie in France last year with nudity but don't remember seeing
anything about it at the Funhouse. Any idea of the title or if it was released
I don't know much about it. We have mentioned it in passing. It is called
L'Idole (The Idol), and co-stars James Hong, the official designated Asian guy
in all Hollywood movies. The film made its North
American debut in Canada last month at the Toronto film festival. I
thought about visiting Toronto to see it (my dad lives nearby), but I wussed
out. The film is in French, even though some sources say that Hong doesn't
speak one word of the language, and spoke all his lines phonetically - pretty
impressive for a 73 year old guy! Sobieski
does speak fluent French, and I guess she speaks it in this film with an
The elderly Hong and Leelee have a quasi-sexual relationship. One reviewer
said, "though their relationship never becomes sexual, it comes awfully close
with Sarah frequently disrobing in front of Zao". Another said "the moment in
which Sarah tells Mr. Zao that they will never make love drains the movie of
its bewitching sexual tension". I don't wanna think about sexual tension
between Leelee and James Hong. Eeeew.
Still haven't seen anything of the captures. Looking hard!
Here's the IMDb
By the way, ignore all that crap you read about Leelee being in line for the
throne of Poland. It doesn't even make sense. It's the same as saying David
Eisenhower is in line by birth for the American Presidency. You see, Poland
started with an inherited monarchy, but that became an elected kingship. Jan
Sobieski was an elected king, so none of his descendants are in line for jackshit. Upon
Sobieski's death, 18 candidates presented themselves for the Polish throne, and
the winner was not even a Pole, but a Saxon. Sobieski's own son was not "in
line" for the kingship, so it is unlikely that Leelee would be. Many people in
Poland are descended from a king, and nobody is "in line" for the throne.
In fact, the number of people descended from Polish kings is not at all
restricted to Poles, since being Polish was not a requirement for the kingship.
The Polish kings included Swedes, a Hungarian (who was a great king of Poland,
by the way, Istvan Batory), a Frenchman, two Saxons, many Lithuanians (some of
Poland's greatest kings before the election system were ethnic Lithuanians, not
Poles), and I forget what all else.
Also, Poland conferred no titles of nobility, so if you hear of a Polish
Count, that is quite misleading. It is possible to be both Polish and a Count,
but not really to be a Polish Count. Poles were made counts and dukes and
princes and other phoney-baloney titles by the Holy Roman Empire, or by one of
the surrounding kingdoms, but such honors were merely titular and included no
land or power.
These are Mr Skin's summaries of films in release or soon to be.
The material girl shows us her isla bonitas during
a scene where she is lying nude on the sand and the camera is above her head.
In a similar shot just a few minutes later we get a glimpse of her delightful
backside. Finally, there's a scene of her curled up, fetal style on a cot in
a hut. She's nude so you can see a little crotch cleavage but only for a
second and only from a distance
A good movie about the life of Bob Crane AND it
has a lot of nudity. Lots of anonymous nudity to be sure, but there is even a
monologue / montage about "Tits" given by Crane (Greg Kinnear). As for
name-names getting the bare treatment, Maria Bello in a daydream sequence
strips down to an old-school whore outfit. She reveals her tits out of the
top of the outfit which are then squeezed by the actor (Kurt Fuller) playing
Werner Klemperer, a.k.a. Col. Klink from Hogan's Heroes. The HOT Alex Meneses
also has a few nip slips that can be seen through her open blouse while she's
trying to seduce Crane. Rita Wilson is also seen in a bra 15 minutes in.
Frida (Salma-loving Scoop is already in line
for this one)
Should be a Skin Top 10 of the year. We've heard
the rumors and boy, are they true. Salma Hayek takes it off. All off. Early
in the film, she's screwing her boyfriend in the closet and we get a quick
glimpse of one of her breasts. Another quick glimpse as she comes stumbling
out of the closet with her shirt still open. Next, after a great deal of time
in a full body cast, the cast comes off and all the butterfly analogies in
the film come to life, as we get a perfect glance at Salma's canvas as the
plaster is removed from her chest. We see more tits as she makes love with
Alfred Molina's Diego Rivera and some nice clothed moments including a sexy
tango with Ashley Judd (ending in a full-on kiss) and Hayek feeling Saffron
Burrows all the way up under the table in a restaurant. But wait, there's
more. Salma has a full-on lesbian scene with a Paris singer. We get to see
ALL of Salma (and most of the singer too) during this scene, including
another great shot of those breasts. Lucia Bravo has a nice breast scene
early on, posing naked for Rivera. Mia Maestro (as Hayek's sister) gets it on
with Rivera and we see a great shot of her buns on top of him and a quick
view of her breasts as she turns around and covers up.
Jennifer Beals and Isabella Rossellini - an impressive list of skin potential.
Unfortunately, none of them take off their clothes, just lookin' damn good in
this excellent and funny flick. However, Flora Diaz plays a prostitute towards
the end of the film and takes it all off for a brief, but excellent display of
her breasts as she lies down waiting for it, totally nude. Mina Badie also
shows a tad-o-skin, as she gets drunk, we see a real close-up of her panty
area. No nudity, but still a nice shot.
Truth about Charlie
The Truth About Charlie
opens with a quick "side-tit" shot from an actress named Olga Sékulic. Thandie
Newton has SEVERAL nice cleavage shots, and there's one scene where her nipples
threaten to tear through the fabric of her T-shirt. Alas, Newton's Apples
remain covered....but MAN she's got a great rack!
Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.
- 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.
'Caps and comments by ICMS:
Last Sunday, German TV aired "Bela Donna", the 1998 Brazilian flick starring Natasha Henstridge. There are already plenty of images from that film in the Encyclopedia, but nevertheless I did one collage with some images that aren't in the Encyclopedia and which show that things got fairly hot between Natasha and her Brazilian lover. As you can see in the top right and bottom right images, Willy was definitely free and ready to dive.
Now let's come to this side of the Atlantic, to my homeland to be precise. In the Flemish edtion of Maxim I found these images of Miss Belgium 2000 Joke Van De Velde. As it is Maxim she not really naked, but they are beautiful pictures nevertheless. During her reign she was rather shy and insecure about herself and said she would never allow being photographed this way. After her reign she disappeared from the scene for a while. As it turns out she had a boob job and then went modelling to Milan. Now she's back with these pictures as a self-confident young women proud to show off her body. For those interested, the photos were taken at Cape Griz-Nez in France, that's where the English Channel is at its narrowest. I think that in one of the pictures you can actually discern Albion.
- Joke Van De Velde
To top things off I'll end with the only nudity so far in this season of the Flemish police series "Flikken". Here's Anna Efthymiadis, an actress I've never heard of before, showing what she's made of in the presence of a policeman with a very strange look on his face.
'Caps and comments by CKRoach
"The Viking Queen"
Here is a gem from the golden age of Hammer Films. The title is highly misleading. The time period it is set in has nothing at all to do with Vikings of any sort. It takes place during the early Roman occupation of the British Islands. Lots of Celts and druids but woefully short of Vikings.
The movie stars Carita (Carita Järvinen) as Queen Salina, along with Don Murray as the Roman governor Justinian. Sadly, this seems to be Carita's one and only film.
The story takes place as the previous ruler, who signed a surrender alliance with the Romans, dies. He leaves his daughter to rule under the Roman governor. While reluctant to accept the job, she becomes queen hoping to get the best deal for her people under the Roman rule.
Soon, her and Justinian fall in love. He tries to rule fairly but is constantly challenged by his ambitious underling, Octavian (Andrew Keir) acting in concert with disgruntled merchants.
Octavian et al stage a rebellion to cause the absence of Justinian. While he is away they proceed to abrogate the treaty and pillage the locals. After flogging Queen Salina and destroying her village, she leads her people in a short-lived, self-destructive rebellion.
While the movie is predictable and the acting mediocre, it never tries to be much more than a B-movie. Of course, a good B-movie never pretends to be Shakespeare. One of the redeeming features is good period Roman costume. They don't have the phony, Ben Hur style uniforms. They also seem to act like Roman troops would be expected to. When burning down the queen's council hut, they all throw their torches in a disciplined manner.
Nudity: While this movie is risqué for the sixties, it's cheesecake falls short. I would say it is full of lots of "Almosts" We almost see something at the love scene by the river. We almost see her front while being flogged. When we get a brief flash (one or two frames) of her being taken down from the cart, she has something pasted on her chest to hide the goodies. Likewise the extra tease us with lots of almosts (pasties and body paint) in a pleasure chamber scene.
IMDB rating: 4.9
Available on DVD only from Amazon($26) or from Suncoast (in their bargain movie pile for $6). Extras include trailer and a sampling of Hammer films.

VEGAS MAYOR PAID TO DRINK GIN
Gin Game - Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, who often brags about his
drinking prowess and holds meetings with constituents known as "Martinis
With The Mayor," has signed a $100,000 endorsement deal to drink Bombay
Sapphire gin. He said he hopes it "gets the message out that Las Vegas is
a fun place." He said he'll donate the $100,000 to charity.
Or he would, if he weren't being paid in gin.
It's going to the world-renowned Las Vegas Liver Clinic.
If the deal doesn't work out, he'll just claim he was drunk when he signed it.
He likes those "Martinis With The Mayor" meetings because the constituents never remember what he promised them.
If all politicians got paid to drink gin, we'd never have another deficit.
ACTRESS CLAIMS HER WEDDING WAS STOLEN
Weddings Make Her Cry - Tiffany Amber-Thiessen has postponed her wedding
because she claims Sarah Michelle Gellar stole it. Friends said she was
stunned when she saw photos of Gellar's wedding to Freddie Prinze Jr. and
realized the wedding planner they shared had copied all her clothing and
decorations. Since stars pay for their lavish weddings by selling photo
rights to them, this "made the monetary value of her wedding nothing."
Tiffany has to start over and come up with something different.
She'd even planned to marry Freddie Prinze Jr.
White dress, tuxedos, flowers...She stole ALL of Tiffany's ideas!
She could make twice as much money if she'd just sell Playboy the photo rights to the honeymoon.
If you can't get publicity and make a profit, why get married at all?!
DREW BARRYMORE'S BAD DRIVING HABITS
DVD: Driving Very Dangerously - Britain's Sun tabloid reports that Drew
Barrymore was stopped by Beverly Hills police after they spotted her
swerving all over the road. She told them she wasn't drunk, she was just
watching a DVD of "Charlie's Angels" while driving, and she was laughing so
hard, she couldn't steer. They let her off with a warning.
They warned her that "Charlie's Angels" isn't worth losing two hours of your life for, much less all of it.
Watching a DVD while driving is a good way to BECOME an angel.
If she'd said she was laughing at a Tom Green movie, they would've busted her for lying to an officer.
