A correction - Down to the Bone comes out NEXT Tuesday, not
tomorrow, so Farmigamania will have to wait a week!
Third party videos:
- Melanie Griffith in Body Double (Several
together). Ridiculously underrated at 6.3 at IMDb. One of my
favorite movies. Great story. Good mystery. Incredibly sexy - at
like top ten of all time. Funny. Marvelously entertaining. And

Legends of HS Football: More Kenny Hall
- His 520 yard game came on 11
carries. In the same game he also had a 21 yard INT, an 82
yard punt return, and a 64 yard kickoff return. And once
again, most impressive of all, he sat out the second half
and half of the second quarter!
- In another game, playing QB, he
touched the ball nine times, and the team scored on every
- With an incredible fusion of
speed and power, Hall was also a state champion in both
the hundred yard dash and the shot put, a rare
combination. (And that was in Texas, a mighty big state
obsessed with sports year-round. He once ran the hundred
in 9.4 and the 40 in 4.3. Pretty good for a shot putter!)
More Things You Didn't Know About Kim
Jong Il. A long and
hilarious thread at Fark. Some of my favorites:
- Every year at Thanksgiving, he
pardons a dog
- Dogs can't smell him.
- Was once in consideration for the
part of "Long Duk Dong" in John Hughes's seminal classic
- He drives an ice cream truck
covered in human skulls.
- Once scissor-kicked Angela
- Taught Fritz Von Erich how to
properly administer The Iron Claw.
- He wrote 7 operas devoted to
- Came third in the Eurovision Song
Contest competing for Portugal in 1959
- He really can throw a football
over them mountains
Weekend Box Office Results for October
- The weekend's big loser: Clint
Eastwood, whose ambitious, honorable, big-budget war movie
took in a mere $10 million on opening weekend, far below
already modest expectations.
- The big winner: Martin Scorsese,
who finally seems to have a genuine hit. The Departed
dropped only 28% from last week, and almost won the
weekend - in its third week! Given the results and the 94%
positive reviews, the studio has to be regretting
releasing this in the weakest period of the year instead
of waiting until Thanksgiving.
- Honorable mention: Tim Burton,
whose re-released Christmas movie in 3-D took in an
impressive $20,000 per screen to finish 12th, despite
being on fewer than 200 screens. Burton's movie took in
more than Employee of the Month, although the latter was
on two THOUSAND screens.

Best high school athletes ever
- You probably never heard of Kenny
Hall, the Sugarland Express, because he didn't get along
with Bear Bryant at A&M, and sort of fell from the
spotlight, but nobody compared to Kenny in high school.
Not Earl Campbell. Not Emmitt Smith. Nobody. His records
sound like some of my dad's fish tales. Here's my
favorite. In one game he played only the first 15 minutes,
scoring seven TDs and rushing for 520 yards. He could
conceivably have rushed for 1500 yards in that one game,
and pretty much had 1000 in the bag! His team was the
state champion that year as well.
Rolen and Pujols hammer Verlander,
Cards rook tosses 4-hitter
(with a little help from Looper)
- I mean no disrespect for the
Cards. They are better than their 83 wins indicate, and
Pujols is now the greatest hitter on the planet. But I
still hate the idea of a .500 team winning the Series.
Reviewing the The Bugatti Veyron 16.4
- You wonder what's so unusual
about a freakin' car review? Well, I'll tell you. How bad
a review could you write if Bugatti let you test drive
their $1.3 million car between LA and SF?

TOP TEN QUESTIONS POLLSTERS REALLY
Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format.
Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.
This is a Canadian police thriller about a cat-and-mouse battle
between a cop (Mario Van Peebles) and a serial killer (James Remar), both of
whom are biblical scholars! The cop studied for the priesthood, and even
memorized the bible, but decided he could do more good on the police force.
The killer was raised by a preacher, and was so obsesses with religion that he
killed his victims by imitating the martyrdom deaths of famous saints. He also
left a scriptural reference in each of their mouths. As the film opens, we see
a victim crucified upside down (Erin Dana Dalton). The cop catches the killer,
but the victim is dead, and the cop got nailed through the hands before he bit
off the killer's nose. The killer is tried, convicted and executed. Both the
cop and his ex-wife (Gladys Jimenez), who happened to be the prosecutor,
witness the execution.
End of movie, right?
What they don't witness is that the killer is brought back from the dead by
government scientists, given plastic surgery and a new identity, and
programmed to become a government assassin.
I didn't make that up.
Cut to the future. The killer is exacting a brutal revenge on everyone
responsible for his conviction, and Peebles is on the case with a new female
partner. Since this film can leave no cliché untapped, we then proceed to the
ol' "dedicated detective who gets thrown off the case but refuses to stop"
gambit. Those of you familiar with this sort of movie already know that the
cops female partner must die, and the film will end in the inevitable
face-to-face showdown when the cop has to save his ex-wife from the psycho.
To their credit, they did not leave room for a sequel.
The film was derivative and cliché-ridden, and even
included Peebles waking up from dreaming that he woke up from a dream. Now that
I have seen that trick four times, it makes me want to blow chunks. I am not
sure why they chose not to make this a mystery, but the script let us in on the
secret from the beginning. There was never any effort at misdirection. 100% of
the dramatic tension consisted of wondering who would be the last victim
before the killer was finally caught.
What I have written above seems pretty negative, but the film had four
great breasts, some cool deaths, and kept me entertained. That is worth a C-.
IMDb readers say 4.3.

Notes and collages
Justine Bateman in Out of Order
I well remember the crush I had on Justine Bateman as the sister in the TV show "Family Ties.". If anyone else feels as I do, ignore this collage and get a clip of this
scene; you will understand why if you do. (Some things are more vivid in motion.)
Lisa Blount in Dead and Buried
Many people may recall Lisa Blount as Debra Winger's avaricious friend in "An Officer and a Gentleman." This film ("Dead and Buried") is
a low-budget horror flick which dropped below the radar fairly quickly after its release many years ago. I happen to like it a lot as a different twist on "zombies." This
scene is of a beach photographer taking photos of Lisa Blount (hence that circle in the middle of the images.)
Lisa London in "H.O.T.S"
If this film is not the acme of gratuitous nudity by very pretty ladies, I'd like to know what is. Here is Lisa London changing her shirt
(not realizing that a thief is hiding in her closet.)
