John Safran vs Mormons

  • Australian filmmaker John Safran is so fed up with mormons ringing his doorbell early in the morning that he flies to Salt Lake City, Utah and tries to convert Mormons to atheism. Needless to say, the locals were not pleased.

The trailer for Miss Potter, a Beatrix Potter biopic starring Renee Zellweger

  • Beatrix Potter has delighted generations of children with her books. But she kept her own private life locked carefully away. Oscar-winning star Renée Zellweger is now bringing her secret story to the screen in "Miss Potter," the first film directed by Chris Noonan since his charming 1995 movie, "Babe." It is set in the high summer days of late Victorian and Edwardian England, during which Beatrix develops her natural skills as artist and story-teller. When she finally publishes her debut book, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," she becomes a writing celebrity. It also leads to courtship and her first love with publisher Norman Warne, played by Ewan McGregor. Their relationship and his marriage proposal in July, 1905, was to change Beatrix's life for ever.

    It was a love which she could not announce - or even talk about. In high-society London, her parents had insisted she keep it from friends and neighbours. They considered her proposed wedding a mismatch. Warne, they said, was from 'trade' and demanded that she carefully reconsider their life together. Beatrix allowed herself to be persuaded to leave her fiancé and London. It was supposed to be a time for reflection and calm. But, instead, she faced tragedy and loneliness and returned, with a different outlook. She became a woman of strong views and independence. She also built up a farming dynasty in the Lake District - a dynasty over which she took charge long after her writing career virtually ended in 1913. It established her as a woman ahead of her time. Despite becoming the world’s most successful children's writer and a wealthy landowner and prize-winning farmer, she never forgot her first love.


The trailer for the remake of The Hitcher

  • From filmmaker Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes production company ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" [2003], "The Amityville Horror" [2005]) comes a remake of the 1986 terror classic. Dave Meyers is directing the new film, which tracks the terrifying cross-country trajectory of Grace (Sophia Bush) and Jim (Zachary Knighton), two traveling college students who are tormented by the mysterious hitchhiker John Ryder, a.k.a. The Hitcher (Sean Bean).


The trailer for Wild Hogs

  • Comedy. A bunch of old suburban dudes who ride Harleys run into some real Hell's Angels. With William Macy and John Travolta


The trailer for Epic Movie

  • Ya gotta love Crispin Glover as Willy Wonka!
  • The twisted minds of two of the six writers of "Scary Movie" tackle the biggest mega-blockbusters of all time in "Epic Movie." The story centers on four not-so-young orphans: one raised by a curator at the Louvre (where an albino assassin lurks), another a refugee from Mexican "libre" wrestling, the third a recent victim of snakes on her plane, and the fourth a "normal" resident of a mutant "X"-community. The hapless quartet visits a chocolate factory, where they stumble into an enchanted wardrobe that transports them to the land of Gnarnia (with a "G"). There they meet a flamboyant pirate captain and earnest students of wizardry – and join forces with, among others, a wise-but-horny lion to defeat the evil White Bitch of Gnarnia.


"In a special pre-Thanksgiving radio address broadcast from the White House, President George W. Bush asked his fellow Americans to join him in giving thanks for the following things"

  • Let’s be thankful for global warming, because as these winter months approach, it makes the world such a nice, toasty place.
  • Let’s be thankful that by the time I finally had to go to Vietnam, I never had to leave my limo.
  • Let’s be thankful that even though my approval numbers are at a record low, they’re still higher than my grades at Yale.
  • Let’s be thankful for Sony PlayStation Portable, which really helps you get through those long Cabinet meetings when they’re going on and on about the economy.
  • Let’s be thankful that in nine months it will be August and then I can go on summer vacation again.
  • Let be thankful that as bad as my career is right now, it's still in better shape than Kramer's.

You have to love Scandinavia: "Is it sacrilegious to keep churchgoers warm and toasty in their pews by using the heat from cremated bodies?"

  • So here's the Norwegian/Danish plan. When it gets too cold, they let convicted mass murderers out of prison on leave. They kill a bunch of people. Authorities cremate the bodies. Voila! Instant warmth.


Fantastic new site: Leo the Listmaker's Pop Culture Palace

  • My favorite part of the article is underlined: "Hi, this is Veronica Orderud, and I listen to Mina every day. And if YOU don't, I'll kill you," is the message. The sound bite was recorded in connection with an interview with Veronica Orderud during a prison leave. Where else but Norway would a convicted mass murderer get leave from prison? They should be thankful she only JOKED about killing people.

Movie Reviews:

Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format. Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.





Aphrodite (1982)

Aphrodite is a French softcore effort from Robert Fuest. It is set in Europe just prior to WW1. An arms dealer is taking some friends on his yacht to a private Greek island to properly commemorate the confluence of the moon and Pleides. He is also visiting a potential arms customer. His intent is to get all of his guests to reenact an erotic story about Aphrodite in honor of the feast of that goddess and, hopefully, get the virginal Valerie Kaprisky properly laid. Two of the three days go according to plan, but, on the third day, Archduke Ferdinand is shot, ruining the whole plan.

The film enjoyed a theatrical release in France and Finland, and then went to vid in Finland, Italy, Portugal, Spain and West Germany. As near as I can tell, the German version is the only one on DVD although, strangely enough, the audio is in English in this all region version. At any rate, the film is nearly impossible to find.

Not that you would want to.

IMDb has this at a weak 3.7, but all three IMDb commenters like this film, mentioning the classical score, costuming, and soft focus photography. I suspect that a very naked Valerie Kaprisky is a huge part of their enjoyment, because this film is a drag.  Basically, it's a series of inane conversations followed by sex scenes. Don't let the economical running time of 88 minutes fool you. It felt like it took hours. I saw nothing of merit in the plot or the acting, but, as a soft core, it does meet genre requirements, and is therefore a C-.


We are also treated to breasts and bush from Catherine Jourdan



Lengthy full frontal and rear nudity from Valerie Kaprisky.



Along the way, numerous unknowns have mostly simulated sex, although the ol' "big toe in the vagina" trick was not simulated.










A Happy Thanksgiving to all!

We return to "Forbidden Sins" as the lovely Amy Lindsay winds up as a "Babe in Bondage." Breasts from Amy in this totally consensual scene.

Claudia Christian in The Hidden


This testosterone-driven sci-fi film about a body-hopping alien criminal with a taste for sex, violence & expensive toys is a favorite of mine. (Hmmm, what does that say about me?)

Ms. Christian is one of the bodies the alien inhabits during his rampage on planet Earth...



Bai Ling in Edmond


...this is actually a funny scene as the most important issue to William Macy's character is to get back his ten dollars in change from the stripper...

Pat's comments in yellow...

Americans gather with our families to offer thanks for all our blessings. 

For instance, WE ARE THANKFUL:

  • that we are not Michael Richards' PR rep
  • or Kevin Federline's talent agent
  • or Lindsay Lohan's panty supplier. 

The Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) issued its annual "Trouble In Toyland" holiday list of the most dangerous toys. They cited Wal-Mart's Kid Connection Mini Activity Cube and Lincoln Logs' Frontier Firehouse for having small parts that pose choking hazards. Other toys contained magnets that can cause serious harm if swallowed. Some toy jewelry contained lead; while play cosmetics sets contained toxic chemicals, such as toluene and xylene.  And the Little Tikes' Carry Along Musical Keyboard was judged to be dangerously loud.

*  By every next-door neighbor in America.

*  The most dangerous toy of all: "The Michael Richards Mr. Microphone."

Forbes.com issued its annual list of the Richest Fictional Characters, and this year's #1 is Daddy Warbucks.  They figure the Iraq war would have swollen the munitions maker's fortune to $36.2 billion.  At #2 is "The Simpson's" Montgomery Burns, due to his nuclear "technology exchange" deal with Kim Jong-Il; and #3 is Scrooge McDuck, thanks to soaring gold prices.  Falling from the list are Ebeneezer Scrooge (he gave away too much money); Lex Luthor (who squandered billions trying to take over the world in "Superman Returns"); and Cruella DeVil (fur prices tumbled).  Last year's #1, Santa Claus, was removed because, while his fortune is estimated as "infinite," too many children protested that he isn't fictional.

*  Then again, if he really existed, was 500 years old, and had infinite
wealth, Anna Nicole Smith would've married him by now.

Tuesday, a rumor hit the Internet that Britney Spears was planning to release a sex tape of her and Kevin Federline for free, to prevent him from selling it.  It prompted Spears to have her attorney issue a statement that no sex tape exists and any rumors about it are "patently false" because Kevin Federline never taped himself having sex with Britney Spears.

*  So he's not only a no-talent parasite, he's also a moron.

Radio station P3 in Oslo, Norway, is under fire for having a notorious murderer who killed her husband's parents and sister cut a promo while she was on prison leave.  She says, "Hi, this is Veronica Orderud, and I listen to Mina every day. And if you don't, I'll kill you." Orderud defended the ad as just "gallows humor."

*  And if you don't think it's funny...she'll kill you.

*  This could be the next move for O.J.

Renowned movie director Robert Altman has died at 81

* There will be a star-studded funeral with a lovely eulogy, which nobody will hear because the stars will all be talking at the same time.

For the first time in ages, David Letterman beat Jay Leno in the ratings
with his show that included Michael Richards' apology

* ABC now plans to replace "Nightline" with a show featuring nothing but celebrities apologizing for being douchebags.
