The Hunger (1983) was Tony Scott's first feature film after a lot of work making commercials, and was an early use of an MTV style of film making. It was also notable for a then eyebrow raising lesbian love scene between Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. The first 20 minutes are pure Scott, and almost surrealist imagery, but slowly something of a plot develops. Deneuve is centuries old, and feeds on human blood -- the blood hunger. She lives with her current soul mate, David Bowie. Sarandon is a doctor researching the aging process. While Deneuve's soul mates are indeed immortal, at some point in their lives, they begin an accerated aging process that makes up for the several hundred years of no aging. When Bowie starts to age, he seeks Sarandon's help, thinking she might have a cure.
Sarandon ends up being Deneuve's replacement for Bowie. We have clear breasts from Sarandon during the lesbian scene, and breasts from Ann Magnuson in the beginning of the film. Deneuve's character shows headless breasts and buns, but Scott admitted in the commentary that this was a double.
Critics despised it, and the public stayed away in droves. IMDb readers have it at 6.1 of 10. Proff indeed of the fact that it has gained a real cult following. The style is no longer as jarring, as it is commonplace and it does have very strong imagery. The makeup effects were also very good. Although set in Manhattan, it was filmed in London. This is a C as a cult film.

Bert's Quarter Shrinking and Can Crushing Gallery.
Fascinating! The submitter described it as follows:
- "Just for fun, a company called Storeridge Engineering uses
powerful electrical bursts to actually shrink coins. This involves
putting the currency into a metal coil and then blasting it with
more than 100,000 amps. The surge causes the coil to explode
violently, leaving a coin that's been compacted at the molecular
level. A Kennedy half dollar loses about half its size and gains
mysteriously beautiful radial lines. There are even more hilarious
results with bimetal coins and coins with a hole in the center,
such as Japanese yen. The site has a great explanation and much
larger pictures of all this frivolity."

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
What else can you say after "Natalie Portman's bare
bum"? I suppose this will become the most-capped film in recent
history, and will rival The Gift in popularity as a multiple DVD
watch for young male audiences.
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.

Die Serpentintšnzerin - 1992 (?)
Today we've got clips from a not that well-known German
actress (only one collage in the back issues) in an a
strange movie. I'm talking about Karina Fallenstein in "Die
Serpentintšnzerin" from 1995 according to the IMDb, from
1992 according to the end credits. If I remember correctly
it is about a travelling circus in the early 20th century
trying to boost its attendance rates. I think it's clear how
they tried to achieve that, the method is still effective a

'Caps and comments by Spaz:
"Tricks" (1997) (TV)
Mimi Rogers movie starring dozens of topless showgirls.
Too many to individually identify but many of them are
professional dancers and not the obligatory strippers.
A glaring continuity error is Mimi's dance double
in a flashback sequence has much smaller boobs.
- various topless showgirls.
- Suzanne Zelmer: topless as Mimi's dance double.
Mimi's face superimposed on the poster fooled no one.

|Señor Skin 'caps from the wonderful comedy for sci-fi movie geeks, "Free Enterprise" (1998). If you haven't seen it, it's worth checking out for a couple of reasons.
1.It's a decent gen-xers-turn-30-and-are-forced-to-kinda-grow-up romantic comedy.
2.Nekkid chicks. England goes topless. Lively is topless in original cut and shows even more skin in the deleted scenes.
3.Shatner! Shatner is at his Priceline.com, pre-bubble bursting best! He parodies himself throughout the movie as only he can...110% over the top!
