"The Retrievers" (1983)

The Retrievers is a pretty much unknown action film, and deservedly so. A man is recruited into "the company" as a retriever -- essentially a gopher who fetches people and things, using force as necessary. When he is sent after and ex company operative who has written a book exposing company assassination plots and the like on foreign soil, he figures out that he is on the wrong side, and helps the authors sister avoid other retrievers, and find a publisher. The only notable thing about this film is that the violent scenes are among the most graphic I have seen, and the martial arts actually looks real.

Patricia Monville plays a stewardess who is having an affair with the hero, and is killed by the company. We see her in a wet bra in the shower. Roselyn Royce is the publisher who decides to publish the book. Don't bother with this one.

    Site news:
    • ICMS resigned from the Fun House this week. He's our resident expert on all things Flemish. His specialized knowledge and his brilliant sense of humor are irreplaceable, and we'll miss him a lot.
    • Charlie's site is updated
    • Tomcat did some captures of 23 year old Claudia Christian in 1988's "Never on Tuesday". I have never seen this movie, but I thought it was cool that the following people are listed as uncredited extras: Nicolas Cage, Cary Elwes, Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Judd Nelson, Gilbert Gottfried. The actual stars of the movie are people you never heard of.
    • I did "Coach", the Cathy Lee Crosby film where she coaches a high school male basketball team, and teaches certain members of the team about some other types of sporting activities, if you catch my drift.

    In case you skip the reviews and go directly to the pictures, here they are:

    Jewel Shepard
    (1, 2, 3, 4)
    Remember the 80's? The days before direct-to-video, when the number of women who spent their careers naked on the movie screen could be counted by guys in Texas even with their shoes on... remember those days? Well, one of them who did was Jewel Shepard. Christina, My Tutor, Hollywood Hot Tubs 2... you name it and if'n she was in it, she was nekkid. So here she is again... a blast from the past.
    Linda Lusardi
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
    Page 3 girl Linda Lusardi has her admirers; saw somewhere she was named Page 3er of the century or some such distinction. As was the case for many of these babes, there was the tame third page work and then was the other stuff. Here's the other stuff.
    Diane Lane A mixed bag of goodies from Scorpion today, including a lot of 80's stuff. So break out the leg warmers and the Huey Lewis tapes and get ready to Rock On!

    First up, some brief, partial breast exposure from one of my all time favorite movie babes, Diane Lane. Vidcaps from a movie I've never heard of before...1989's "Love Dream" a.k.a. "Priceless Beauty". IMDb lists it as an Italian movie also staring Christopher "Highlander" Lambert.

    Donna Speir Donna and Hope Marie Carlton actually. Going topless from one of the late 80's Sidaris movies. Does it really matter which one?
    Jeannine Louise No leg warmers, but she is wearing a pink headband and sporting a female version of the much feared hair style..."the mullet". Vidcaps from 88's "Soft Touch II"
    Jennifer Inch Topless and full frontal scenes, also from "Soft Touch II".
    Koo Stark Topless, bum shots, plus a hint of pubes from 1977's "Justine".
    Leigh Lombardi  
    We first saw topless 'caps from "Moontrap" back in September.
    Here were my thoughts back then....

    Let's put it this way...the star of the movie is Walter Koenig. That's right, Mr. Chekov. It's been a while since I've seen this one, and all I recall is that there are bad movies...and then there are REALLY bad movies. This one falls into the the really bad category. My memory is foggy on the plot (if any), but if I recall, the nude scene goes something like this....Chekov goes to the moon and finds a alien base. He goes inside. As fate would have it, the Aliens who haven't been there in millennia have left the air on just in case any humans stop by. Chekov opens up a big box, and out pops an alien babe. They have sex.

    "Moontrap"'s budget obviously wasn't spent on writing, but rather on special effects. Yup, Chekov's wig never fell off once!

    Unfortunately, I haven't picked this one up for a more thorough review, but perhaps it's time.

    On a separate would be an interesting poll to see which classic Trek star has made the worst non-Trek movie or guest appearance.

    And Shatner doesn't count! Why? Because whether intentional or not he has become a parody of himself, and quite a funny guy. Although he may have been serious while making straight-to crap like the Jeff Speakman movie "Land of the Free", at least he poked fun at himself in "Airplane 2", "Loaded Weapon 1", the WebTv ads, and of course the wonderful commercials!

    As opposed to Chekov who was really trying to be a Sci-fi action stud in "Moontrap". (including a scene where he did some push-ups). So...there's the basic criteria. Any ideas?

    Lisa Aliff Brief breast exposure from 1989's "Damned River".
    Patricia Charbonneau More from the 80's....topless scenes from 1988's "Call Me". A bit of trivia...this one featured an early screen appearance by Steve Buscemi.
    Raquel Welch Classic cleavage from 1969's "100 Rifles".
    Sue Morrow Headbands, lot's of topless exposure, and sex in an inflatable kiddie pool. More 'caps from "Soft Touch II".
    Veronica Carothers Topless exposure from the newest of today's batch from Scorpion...going all the way back to 1990 in these 'caps from "Fatal Skies".

    Jennifer Runyon From "" by Image Dude
    Sporty Spice Pokies from Mel C. As the old kid's song goes..."C is for cookie". And it looks like Sporty has had more than a few bags of Double Stuff Oreo's lately.
