"Species III"

Species III (2004) follows the rules for a threequel. They decreased the budget (shooting on HD Video), increased the nudity, and opened up the story for more sequels. Considering the budget, the film looks really good. Special effects are well done, and they planned from the beginning on bringing CGi to clean up and spice up the film. Some of the lighting is as good as I have seen on HDTV. The daughter of Eve has her shot at mating and furthering her species with the aid of young scientists. The fly in the ointment is twofold. Pesky federal types are out to exterminate the species, and there are half breeds who have weak immune systems and are looking for genetic answers to their survival.

Nudity includes breasts and buns from Sunny Mabrey as the new species, and full frontal from Amelia Cooke as a halfling. A hallmark of the franchise has been uninhibited nudity from the "species" and it continues here. Both actresses seem completely at ease naked.

IMDb readers have this at 3.5 of 10. It went direct to cable, and is now available in an Unrated DVD version. It didn't have the energy of the original, and at no time was the audience in peril from this alien threat, so it was hard to become emotionally involved. The film makers did a very nice job with what they had to work with, but this could have used a lot more script. Low D+.

    I reviewed this a long time ago. It is now out on Region 2 DVD, so ICMS capped this scene. I made the still collages from his film clip.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    .wmv files made by Scoop from Shiloh's .avi's.

    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 picture. When 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 altogether.

    Angie Dickinson was really good at ... um ... I have no frickin' idea what she was supposed to be good at, or how Angie got to be a star, but she looked good, and she always hung around with the coolest crowd. If Sinatra and Bert Bacharach were in town, you know Angie was nearby. She was like the really pretty girl in your high school who wasn't really very clever or talented, but all the coolest guys wanted to date her anyway, because she was gorgeous and a good sport and was reputed to have ... um ... special skills. I wouldn't know. I wasn't cool enough to date those girls. I always dated the ones who wore leotards 24/7, read Kafka, and wrote poetry. They were our generation's equivalent of Goths.

    Hey, they were available. What can I say?

    Anyway, you have to love any woman who does a nude love scene with Bill Shatner (in Big Bad Mama).

    Angie's not quite nude this time, although she flashes a little here and there in this Burt Reynolds movie which basically stars TV actors. The wimpy guy who played Dobie's English teacher and Patty Duke's father is in it, for example, and that big guy with the cool voice who played Cheyenne. Frankly, I can't remember whether I have ever seen this flick, but I found it nostalgic to watch the clip.



    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    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. Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    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.

    Troy (2004)

    I've noticed the region 1 DVD of Troy will not be available until next month, nearly two months after its region 2 release. Let me ease the pain somewhat by offering my fellow Fun House readers a clip of the only nude scene in this flick. Diane Kruger, also known as Diane Heidkrüger before she dropped the first part of her name in honor of her dad Freddy, is showing her buns to Paris and the audience.
    IMO there were only two actors in this movie who tried to make something of their role, the rest seemed only there to collect their paychecks although they didn't have much to work with, to be honest. One of the "performers" is of course British Peter O'Toole, the other is Australian actress Rose Byrne. She played the part of Briseis, the Trojan royal who falls in  the hands of the Greeks. I found her the only character you could care for, and each time you wondered what was going to happen to her, the film cut away to another scene. Very frustrating.

    Maybe they should have situated this story in the present. Let's imagine for instance the British Prince visiting the American President in the White House. The Bonnie Prince does a runner with the First Lady and spirits her back to Buckingham Palace. The Warrior President unleashes his Shakram and his invincible army upon an Empire not defeated since 1066. Wow, imagine those battle scenes. I'll stop here. It's obvious that I've watched too many episodes of Xena Warrior Princess and can't think straight anymore.


    The Goddess of 1967 (2000)

    Rose Byrne doesn't show any skin in Troy, but she did in the 2000 movie "The Goddess of 1967", a film about a Japanese guy who comes to Australia to buy a vintage car, a right hand drive French Citroën DS (déesse=goddess in French). Rose and the man from the land of the rising sun get very close as you can see in these four clips. So, that puts at least one of the gods back in Troy.



    Crimson Ghost
    NOTE: We currently have to do all of our movie files in zip format. Instead of viewing them online, save the zip files to your hard drive in the directory of your choice, un-zip and play from there.

    Today from the Ghost...a couple of quick vids from Monday night's episode of "Las Vegas". The highlight of course was Nikki Cox showing partial breast views while taking a bath with Josh Duhamel. But not to worry Marcil fans...she showed some very nice pokies.

    'Caps and comments by Hankster:


    Today we take a look at Jenya Lano in "Stealing Candy".

    Certainly not a great movie, but I have seen worse. (that has to be an understatement when you look at some of the crap that I have capped.)

    Jenya is the highlight of this flick as she displays her ample bosom. They even had a brief "Damsel in Distress" scene.

    'Caps and comments by Vejiita:


    I sent in some caps of Eva Longoria the other day. One small problem wasn't her. All the reviews and even the box of the movie makes you think that she is the main character, however, the actress is actually a girl name Yancy Mendia.

    Honestly, I wasn't sure. I noticed the differences from her present look, but went by the box and guessed that make up and/or character were reasons she didn't look like a Desparate Housewife. are the corrected 'caps of Mendia.

    • Yancy Mendia (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    Next up, some 'caps of the beautiful Korean Actress, Kim Hye-soo. Here we see her showing lots of skin in scenes from the movie "Hypnotized".

    Vanessa Marcil

    A nice set of 'caps to go with the Ghost's video clips. Here are two of the "Las Vegas" babes in scenes from Monday night's episode. Marcil shows cleavage and pokies, Cox of course shows partial breast views while in the tub.

    Sofía Vergara
    (1, 2)

    The beautiful Colombian actress showing some very nice cleavage during a guest spot on the ABC comedy "Rodney". You may recognize her from the movies "Big Trouble" and "Chasing Papi".

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler The "Saturday Night Live" babes making an appearance on Leno. Fey shows a little leg, Poehler shows a little cleavage.

    Tyra Banks The supermodel and actress showing some cleavage while visiting Letterman.

    Evangeline Lilly This is a great find by DeadLamb. We've mentioned before that prior to her hit series "Lost", Lilly did commercials for a dating "chatline" (the kind you see ads for at 2am). Here is an ad featuring Lilly posing while on the phone...because of course, this is the kind of girl you would meet when calling a chatline at 2am.
