"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 (1998):

    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.

    The story:

    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.

    • 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.

    .wmv files made by Scoop from Shiloh's .avi's.

    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 picture. When 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 altogether.



    • Shelley Plimpton in Alice's Restaurant. .(.wmv zipped, .avi zipped).  Per IMDb:  "Shelley Plimpton sings and plays the role of Crissy in the 1968 Broadway musical Hair. Her solo song on the recording with the original cast is "Frank Mills".

    • Flora Diaz in Roger Dodger (.wmv zipped, .avi zipped). This isn't a bad movie, although it's more of a film festival flick than a commercial winner.



    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    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. Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    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.

    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.
  • But are there that many readers who want to know how to accessorize an orange jumpsuit?

    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 weight."

  • The number isn't rising because the larger ones have started exploding.
  • Notice they took this survey before the holiday season began.

    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!

    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 exhausted!
  • Compared to their parents, that's NOT promiscuous.

    Won't Her Name Be Unknown Soon Enough? - In a related story, Britney Spears told a German magazine that she wants to change her name to Britney Federline, but "society probably won't allow me."

  • "Society" must be the name of her management company.
  • Besides, she'd just have to change it back in two months.
  • Her husband's against it: he thinks she's trying to cash in on his accomplishments.

    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.
