"Friday the 13th Part 5: A New Beginning"
Friday the 13th Part 5: A New Beginning (1985) is the logical follow-up to the Final Chapter. Like those that came before, a slasher kills horny teens and many more people. Several things were different. The identity of the slasher was a mystery, much of the film was shot in clear daylight, and nearly all of the acting was terrible. Feldman's character from number 4 is now a young adult, and has been bouncing around mental hospitals since he killed Jason. He is sent to a half-way house in the country that is full of horny teens. They also introduce a young black kid whose grandfather is the cook for the facility, and who is clearly predestined to be one of the surviving heros at the end. The killing starts with one patient hacking another to death with an ax. In what I have to believe was intended as pure parody, a big guy in a hockey mask starts killing everyone he sees. THe identity of the killer is supposed to be the big payoff, so I will not reveal it here.
Deborah Vorhees shows breasts in a long daytime sex scene. Rebecca Wood flashes her breasts. Melanie Kinaman shows breasts through a white shirt and Juliette Cumins shows breasts in a lengthy undressing scene. IMDb readers have this at 3,4 of 10, and it grossed less than half what four did. This film does have nudity, a Jason-like killer, and a high body count, but doesn't really feel like the rest in the series, and is the worst of the first 5. D-.

Father Manolo, the school principal and their literature teacher,
is witness to and part of these discoveries. The three characters
meet twice again, at the end of the 70s and in the 80s. The

Handwriting Test - what does your handwriting reveal? I
couldn't take the test because I can't remember what my
handwriting looks like, although I think I used to write words out
in longhand. Do really old people still write stuff by hand? In
that case, I guess I could be a handwriting analyst, too. I'd have
one rule in my interpretation - if you actually use handwriting
voluntarily, you're gonna die real soon. Not because of anything
in your personality, just because you're mighty goddamned old.
It's the same general principle as saying your life expectancy is

The trailer for In Good Company: "Filmmaker and Academy
Award-nominated screenwriter Paul Weitz ('About a Boy') turns his
complex sense of humor on Synergy, an insightful comedy about the
relationship between a 50-year-old businessman and his new,
26-year-old boss. Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid) is headed for a
shakeup. He is demoted from head of ad sales for a major magazine
when the company he works for is acquired in a corporate takeover.
His new boss, Tom is half his age--a business school prodigy who
preaches corporate Synergy. While Dan develops clients through
handshake deals and relationships, Tom cross-promotes the magazine
with the cell phone division and 'Krispity Krunch,' an
indeterminate snack food under the same corporate umbrella. Both
men are going through turmoil at home. Dan has two
daughters--Alex, age 18, and Jana, age 16--and is shocked when his
wife tells him she's pregnant with a new child. Between college
tuition, the mortgage and a new baby, Dan can't afford to lose his
job in the wave of corporate layoffs. Tom, in the meanwhile, is
dumped by his wife of seven months just as he gets his promotion.
Dan and Tom's uneasy friendship is thrown into jeopardy when Tom
falls for, and begins an affair with, Dan's daughter Alex (Scarlett
Johansson). Weitz's examination of life's surprises, ironies and
coincidences combine to form Synergy."

.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
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
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.

Clips from the disk, Naked and Naughty. Since most of
the gals take off their clothes and then sorta just
stand around... and that ain't naughty... I'm
figgerin' the makers of this fine cinematic
achievement think gettin nekkid is, itself, naughty.
Which means the title ought to Naked and Naked. Truth
in labeling, you know.
Thirteen gals on the main feature and on a whole bunch
of extras. Includes several B-movie reglars like
Monique Parent, Lisa Comshaw, Lorissa McComas and Amy
Lots and lots of clips to choose from. I looked for
those revealing all three B's. (All of these are divx .avis, zipped as usual)

- Jamie Pope, about whom I know absolutely nothing except she is a brunette with a big ol' tat on her lower back.
- Last up for today (more to follow tomorrow) are Kim Maddux, occasional B-movie star with obnoxious after-market equipment and Linda O'Neill (1,
2), with more modest additions to an otherwise killer frame.
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.

'Caps and comments by Dann:
A crime/horror flick from Showtime, not one of their best efforts, this 2003 gory horror whodunit excels mostly in the "show lotsa boobs" department, but even in that respect, they came up a little short.
A group of strippers is the target of a serial killer who kills them with a hatchet, then chops off (and takes) their hands (because, as it turns out, "Mommy used to do dirty things with her hands").
In any case, as the lead detective tries to protect his stripper girl friend and her pals, (and as she tries to get admitted to law school, although I don't know why we really care about that), the cast slowly but surely shrinks as the strippers get offed one by one.
Yup, it's lame and predictable (although the real killer was a slight surprise at the end), the acting vacillates between not-all-that-bad to horrible, and the story is hackneyed and uneven, but let's face it, this is basically a boobs movie with a story thrown in as a binder, and in that department, it also fell a little short. All in all, even for T & A movies, I've seen a lot better.

The film is especially important to us, as it features full frontal nudity from Paula Prentiss, the first such exposure in a post Hays Act mainstream Hollywood production.

DUTCH GOVERNMENT MARIJUANA GLUT
Still Wanna Legalize Pot? - The Dutch Health Ministry is suffering from a
marijuana glut. Last year, they started a program to allow people to buy
medicinal marijuana at any pharmacy. But in Holland, any adult can buy
decriminalized pot at a "coffee shop" for half the price. The government
expected to sell 450 pounds of pot, but only 175 pounds have been sold.
The head of a local company that researches medical pot asked why a legal
commodity is more expensive than the same illegal commodity.
Just a guess, but...taxes?
This proves that government agencies are actually less efficient than
stoned-out pot farmers.
The health ministers will just have to smoke it themselves... like they
were doing when they came up with this plan.
STRIPPING FOR VOTES
Poll Dancing - Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich has a unique
campaign promise: vote for him and get a free striptease. Campaign aides
in Donetsk made a deal with the Santa Fe Bar to offer free strip shows to
registered voters. An organizer said, "We hope the voters will remember
who gave them this show for free when they go to the ballot box."
Just hope they don't get angry when they go into the voting booth, pull
the curtain, and discover there's no lap dancer.
The strip show is so great, some people have registered 35 times...just
like in Colorado.
