"Friday the 13th Part 4 - the Final Chapter"
Friday the 13th Part 4 - the Final Chapter (1984) has Jason coming back to life in the morgue, killing a doctor and a nurse, then heading home to harvest some more horny teens. This time, they upped the breast count, added some character development, and included a few sub-plots. In other words, they made a little more effort, and it resulted in a pretty good sequel. The story centers around a group of teens living in a house in the woods, and the family who lives next to them (mother, daughter, son). The son, played by Cory Feldman, has a genius for make-up and masks. The daughter is a dedicated virgin. The teens next door are after sex and drugs and fun.
Camilla and Carey More, identical twins, show breasts and buns. Judie Aronson shows breasts and buns in two skinny dipping scenes, one in broad daylight. Robyn Woods, body double for Barbara Howard, shows buns pressed against a shower door. IMDb readers have this at 4.4 of 10. It grossed $44M in the theaters, and "The Final Chapter" proved that the franchise could still make money. They didn't leave much room for a sequel, however, as they showed Jason's face for the first time, and killed him off at the end. The whole point of this entire series is a huge body count as Jason hacks and slashes his way through good and bad alike. For some reason, they all seem to end at night, and in the rain. This is one of the better in the series. C.

Homegrown actually isn't that bad a flick. It is a modest little
bit of intrigue about a trio of low-level pot harvesters who watch
their boss get killed, then decide that they need to steal just
enough of the pot to recoup the salaries they were owed.
As the film progresses, their modest ambitions grow until they
find themselves trying to make millions of dollars, and get caught
in a vice between the mafia, a powerful local pot-growers' cartel,
corrupt local policemen, and the twin brother of their slain boss.
All in all, it isn't a bad watch, with a cast that includes all
of the following:
- Billy Bob Thornton
- Hank Azaria
- Kelly Lynch
- Jon Bon Jovi
- Ryan Phillippe
- Judge Reinhold
- Ted Danson
- John Lithgow
- Jamie Lee Curtis
- Jake Gyllenhaal
- Maggie Gyllenhaal
If you are a movie buff or a fan of any of those people, you are
now wondering, "how did I miss this film completely, given that it
came out in 1998, and featured a lot of stars?"
I guess there are several components to that answer. For example,
many of those people had miniscule roles. I don't even remember the
Gyllenhaals. (They took tiny roles because they were not famous yet,
and their father was the director.) In addition, many of these
people were far less popular then. The star, Billy Bob Thornton, now
a skinny star, was then a chubby bit player. You could cite a few
such reasons, but they would all miss the central point, unless you
hit on the key fact that this film was mis-marketed as a comedy.
Even now, the DVD box claims that the film is a comedy. There is
almost nothing funny in this film, other than that the three main
characters are bumbling buffoons. Apart from the obvious ineptitude
of their ill-formed schemes, the film has about as many chuckles as
Andrei Rublev. It's basically a buddy film, placed within the
general setting of a crime thriller in which amateurs get in over
their heads. It is performed by a competent cast, and most of the
situations are fairly plausible.
But a comedy it ain't.
Speaking of Sex (2001):
Director John McNaughton has usually been a good source of
dependable entertainment. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and
Normal Life are considered offbeat treasures. Wild Things is one of
the great sleazy movies. Mad Dog and Glory is a lot of fun. The
latter two feature the great comic Bill Murray, so one would hold
out hopes that a third collaboration between Murray and McNaughton
would offer more laughs, more entertainment, and more sleaze.
One would be wrong.
Except for the sleaze. There is plenty of that. I suppose half of
the movie involves verbal descriptions of sex and various
discussions about the poor performance of Jay Mohr's penis and the
magnificent performance of James Spader's penis.
A couple is having sexual problems. They get involved with two
therapists. One of the therapists has elevator sex with the wife.
The two therapists have a sexual history with each other, and some
unsettled scores lead to a massive legal battle centering around the
unethical relationship between the therapist and the wife, with the
other therapist pulling the strings. High-powered lawyers get
involved on both sides, and the lawyer become sexually involved with
one another as well. Somehow, these people have to figure out how to
settle the lawsuit and break off into three happy couples.
I'm not sure if the script was that bad to begin with, but the movie
was completely screwed up by performers who just weren't any good in
their parts. Melora Walters overplayed the wife with a cartoonish
Betty Boop voice. Jay Mohr brought a complete lack of acting skills
to the husband part. James Spader was an over-the-top nebbish, and
was totally unbelievable as the male therapist.
Bill Murray and Catherine O'Hara did fairly well in small parts as
the lawyers, but even Murray, although the best performer in the
film, brought none of his usual comic inventiveness to this role. I
guess even a comic genius needs some lines to work with.
This is just an unfunny comedy, with poor performances centered
around generally uninvolving situations and characters.

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

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

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.

MARTHA WRITING PRISON DIARY
The Bitch Get Richer - Publishing industry sources say Martha Stewart's
lawyers are quietly pitching a "prison diary" project. It would cover
Martha's prison experiences, but might reach back further. Insiders say
she could write it in prison, deliver it when she gets out, have it in
stores by summer, and be paid a $5 million advance.
Wow! That insider stock tip might've finally paid off!
All the other inmates will have the same experiences and be paid 11
cents an hour.

NUMBER OF OVERWEIGHT AMERICANS HOLDS STEADY
They Didn't Survey Kirstie Alley - An annual report by the NPD Group
marketing firm found that the number of overweight Americans held steady at
62 percent after rising each year from 1995 to 2002. A spokesman said
people are becoming more aware of what they eat. He said, "At some point,
we knew this would happen. Americans just couldn't continue to put on
The number isn't rising because the larger ones have started exploding.
Notice they took this survey before the holiday season began.
SEX SURVEY PUTS FRENCH ON TOP
Who's holding the timer? - According to an annual global survey by
Durex Condoms, the French have the most sex, claiming they do it an average
of 137 times a year, compared to 111 for Americans. The Brits spend the
most time on foreplay - 22.5 minutes - while Americans spend 19.7 minutes,
which is the global average. The Chinese have had the most partners - an
average of 19.3 - while the Vietnamese have had the fewest: 2.5. The US is
#1 in one area: 43 percent of American women own vibrators.
Probably not something that American men want to brag about.
And of course, American vibrators are the biggest and loudest!
YOUNG WOMEN CONSERVATIVE, YET SLUTTY
Chippies Off The Old Block - The 21st Century Young Women's Survey of Great
Britain polled UK women aged 18 to 25 and found that daughters of the
promiscuous, divorced generation are far more traditional than their
parents. Seven in 10 say there's too much pressure to have sex, the same
number want to be married before they have kids, and nine out of 10 dream
of a traditional wedding and a stable marriage. However, the poll also
found that the average woman has had seven sex partners by age 21, and one
in five would sleep with a boss she didn't like to get a promotion.
Or to win on "The Apprentice."
They want to settle down and get married because by 21, they're
Compared to their parents, that's NOT promiscuous.

COPS BUST ELVIS AND JAKE BLUES
Jailhouse Rock - Police in Crystal, Minnesota, were called to a veterans'
hall on a report that a man dressed as Elvis was having convulsions. When
they arrived, he suddenly jumped up, yelled "Viva Las Vegas!" and started
singing show tunes. Meanwhile, a man dressed as John Belushi in "The Blues
Brothers" allegedly stole a car and had to be chased down. A police
spokesman said, "It's one of those things that you stop and scratch your
head and you think, 'Am I seeing what I think I'm seeing?'"
You're seeing "Free Beer Night" at the veterans' hall.
That couldn't really be Elvis and John Belushi...John Belushi is dead.
Chasing down the Blues Brother took 750 police cars.
