"Hell up on Harlem" (1973)
Hell up on Harlem (1973) was properly trashed by Scoopy not long ago. A quick summary: bad plot, acting, script, photography and soundtrack, good breast exposure in a well-lit sex scene of Margaret Avery. I would add that a big problem with the film was that the black characters were just not
black enough. Things I learned from this film:
Fred Williamson always kills what he shoots at.
Fred Williamson is a frustrated high hurdler.
Any street hood is more trustworthy than your father.
It takes less than 20 seconds to strangle anyone, and if you do it with a scarf it is a professional job.
Bad cops are all Italian.
Cops never kill what they shoot at.
Women are helpless, and prone to cower.
This is seriously bad, and from a genre I normally like. D-.

Victoria Abril in Rio Abajo, aka On The Line. Odd movie. Part serious film. Part grade-b sensationalist melodrama. Although the script is kinda OK, it may have the worst acting of any semi-legitimate film ever. Abril did fine, but her co-star was incredible!
A new movie called Soulkeeper. The popular combination of breasts-monsters-jokes. The plot is confusing, but some of the one liners were OK. Lots of breasts, women not known to me. These are raw screen-snaps
Joanne Whalley, formerly Joanne Whalley-Kilmer, in last year's "Breathtaking". Another lady getting more liberal on the nudity standard as she ages. Still waiting for her to marry Ronny Cox so she can become Joanne Whalley-Cox

in the following, Scoop's comments in white, other people's words in yellow
I am somewhat of a collector of mispronunciations so I really appreciate your page the last few days. There are a few that are really bugging me lately:
1) "I could care less." Obviously a bastardization of "I couldn't care less". Sometimes, being a jerk, I interrupt the person and explain that what they just said means that they really do care. By the way, I was really pleased when I spell checked this in AOL and it suggested that I change it to "couldn't care less" and explained what the phrase means.
2) "Supposably" instead of "Supposedly". Laziness probably, but it instantly makes me mentally put a "dummy stamp" on the person's forehead.
3) The use of "sh" instead of "st". When people want to say "street" and it comes out "shhtreet" or "shhtrong" instead of "strong". It makes me stare at their mouth while they are talking to see exactly where that tongue goes during the next "st" word.
I guess one might add ex-specially to the suppose-ably list! These mistakes are not usually made by educated people, but they are made often, and the times, they are a-changin'.
How 'bout lugsury and congradulations?
"Luxury" and "luxurious" present an interesting case in American speech, because they are not commonly pronounced with the same consonants. Webster's Collegiate lists luk-sury as the #1 pronunciation (but lists lug-zhury as #2).
On the other hand, it lists lug-zhurious as #1 (and luk-shurious #2) for the longer word "luxurious". So if you speak the most common pattern, you say "luk-sury", but "lug-zhurious". In fact, this is how I pronounce the words, but I never thought of it before looking it up today.
As for "congratulations", you purists may be unhappy to know that WCD only lists two pronunciations, and you'll probably hate both! (#1) con-GRACH-ul-ate (#2) con-GRAJ-ul-ate. In American speech the only "t' is at the end. Con-GRA-tyu-ate doesn't make the list. British speakers may take comfort in the fact that con-GRA-tyu-late is still the pronunciation listed by OED
Two single syllable words that should be no brainers, but people insist on adding an extra syllable to each:
"owl" is too often pronounced "ow-wul"
"fire" is usually heard as "fie-yer"
Of course, in Texas we have a different take on "fire". It's pronounced the same as "far". We think the series "Farscape" is about the stairs you have to use when the elevator doesn't work.

First up in Round Two of last week's late night skin, more goodies from "Nightcap"

Three Unknowns who seem to show the most skin in today's batch.

Naked Mystery Over Kidman Video with British Singer
LONDON (Reuters) - Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman have filmed a pop video to promote their new single, "Somethin' Stupid," sparking a mystery over whether they keep their clothes on.
Tabloid newspapers were divided on Tuesday on the details of the top-secret video, filmed behind closed doors at a west London studio, and EMI, which is releasing the video and single next month, is remaining tight-lipped.
"I can confirm that they finished filming the video at the end of last week," a spokesman for Williams told Reuters on Tuesday. "We are not revealing any details."
But the tabloids had their own ideas on the content.
"Robbie Romps Naked With Nicole," screamed the front page headline on the Daily Star.
"The Hollywood beauty is left wearing just a diamond necklace -- and clutching a diamond purse -- in the steamy promo," the paper reported.
It said the retro video, set in the 1950s, would "stun the showbiz world."
The Mirror had a more sedate take on the video. "Nicole wore a mauve lace Collette Dinnigan evening dress with green sequins, flown in from Australia especially for the shoot ... topped off with a 5.5 million pound necklace," it reported.
"Not to be outdone, Robbie wore an 18-carat gold Mouawad Roberge M31 watch, decorated with white diamonds."
Whether naked or clad in expensive clothes, the truth will remain a mystery until the release in November.

Anna's 007 Love Match
Russian tennis star Anna Kournikova has been tipped to become the new Bond girl.
The 20-year-old is expected to star alongside Pierce Brosnan in Bond 20, the working title for the latest 007 movie.
Anna has already hit the silver screen, appearing in a cameo role in the Jim Carrey movie Me Myself and Irene.
Film critics loved her debut role as a motel manageress, describing her as a natural.
A source close to the player told the Daily Express she was keen to take on
more acting roles and a Bond film would be an "amazing opportunity for
But not everyone thinks Kournikova is cut out for the acting world.
Fellow Russian tennis player Nathalie Tauziat once ironically said of Anna: "What do you think tennis is - a casting ground for the next James Bond movie?"
Anna, who has never won a major tennis tournament, is unlikely to be deterred by her comments. She said: "I've always loved the movies, it's something that's fascinated me since I was a little kid."
If she is cast in the role, she will join the ranks of Ursula Andress, Honor Blackman, Teri Hatcher and Denise Richards as a Bond girl.
Jr's 2 cents....
Granted, we all know that Anna K is hot. But seriously...I just watched "Me, Myself, and Irene" last night, and as an actress, she's a helluva tennis player. I'd like to know which critic thinks of her as an acting natural. My guess...it's the movie guy at High Times, and he's writing his review just as the clock hits 4:20.
The past few Bond movies have had really good actors...and the movies have still sucked. Hopefully this is just a silly rumour, because after "T.W.I.N.E", I don't think the Bond franchise should try to get away with poor performances from overpriced Tennis babes. Seriously guys, spend the money on writing a better script next time.
So listen up studio people... if you must hire Anna K, please limit her to the following: either "Greetings, Mr. Bond" or "Right this way, Mr. Bond".
