One Fish, Two Fish
Tuna writes "Private Resort may be the most underrated movie at IMDb. Although the average is over 5, the weighted formula results in a 3.4. Leonard Maltin calls it a bomb. So much for the critics. This is a simple teen exploitation comedy, and possibly the best ever made. It has a lot of physical humor, including a scene where ab over-zealous house detective repels a dog attack by snapping them with a (used) condom. The story is about two teenage boys (Johnny Depp in his second movie, Rob Morrow in his first) staying at an exclusive private resort for the weekend. Depp wants to get laid, Morrow wants to find true love. Neither counts on jewel thirves, house detectives and various other misadventures. Plenty of nudity, which may help to account for the low rating at IMDb." (NOTE: only the Shapiro collages actually contain nudity.)

Members' bonuses. Strange Days.

Strange days is a brilliant movie. It has its flaws, I suppose. Let's start with them. It's not a likeable movie. It doesn't allow you to get very close to any of the characters. It's very long (145 minutes), and it is based on a poor "future" concept. They were so hung up on using the millenium party as a setting, that they located the movie in 1999. Well, 1999 has come around, and it looks nothing like this movie's vision. If the script were mine to review, I would have decided on some unspecified date. On the other hand, James Cameron wrote the script, and he does know a bit more about the subject than I do.

Here's the premise. In a future world, the government has invented something to replace "wearing a body wire" - it is a device that attaches to the cerebral cortex, and tapes everything your senses feel - sight, sound, touch, emotions - everything. Other people can then watch the tape and experience the event exactly as you did. Needless to say, the government is not able to keep this under control, and it hits the streets as a black market commodity, thereby replacing heroin as the ultimate drug. Ralph Fiennes is a dealer who sells the experience tapes, and who (like many dope dealers) is also using too much of his own product. Angela Bassett, a very underrated performer in my opinion, is his kick-ass King-Fu friend. Fiennes is hung up on his ex-girlfriend (Juliette Lewis), and keeps reliving the tapes of the experiences he had with her. This keeps his feelings for her right on the highest level of their love, although she has moved on long ago. Bassett tries to tell him that "memories are meant to fade" for a reason.

Why do I think it is a masterpiece, despite my negative comments above? The action in this film is absolutely pulse-pounding. Several segments are filmed from the P.O.V. cam of someone wearing the wire, including a creepy double-thrill, when a murderer/rapist makes his victim wear the device and jacks her into his own device, so she can watch herself being raped and murdered from his eyes, and feel his feelings. The dialogue is literate and quotable. The lingo is hip and creative. The minor characters are creepy as can be, and the stars are excellent. And I like its vision of the future, even if it proved chronologically inaccurate. It is a future leading up to Blade Runner, although not there yet. The poor and rich are separating further, and the streets are decaying into unchecked violence. If you have the time, and are in the right mood, you might find this movie one of the great roller-coaster thrill ride experiences of your movie-watching life. It is intense. Four stars from me. The movie didn't get a great score at IMDB, but that's because it's demented, ultra-violent, sexy and brutal. I don't care about that. I just think it's some kick-ass filmmaking. Not every film has to be Toy Story. If you're a film buff and haven't seen this one, you owe yourself the kick.

Unfortunately, the major nude scene is a little distorted in proportion, because thats' how the filmmakers chose to depict the difference between reality and virtual reality in the wire.

Hello Uncle Scoopy! I'm not sure if there still is some space left for me on the Fun House since you wrote some time ago that you've cancelled your subscriptions to the all Ben Gazzara and the all Flemish channel but you were probably kidding. I am convinced that a decent and well-mannered guy like you would have let me know personally via e-mail if my contributions were no longer desired. As far as that collage of that peeing woman is concerned I want you to know that I am not at all into this sort of pictures. The only reason I sent it to you is that I was amazed that something like that was aired on TV and I just wanted to show it to you. I never thought you would publish it! Some days ago I found a similar collage on Umpire's site featuring a white woman and a black man in a 1999 film ( I don't remember the actress and the title). Hopefully this isn't the start of a new trend. I hope they're not going to use these kind of images in commercials for toilet paper or I'll throw my TV out!

Now the new material. You probably remember the discussion about Tina Sportolaro being Eva Cobo and vice versa. Well I think I have extra proof to back up what I wrote earlier: that the woman that I claim to be Tina is in fact Tina and not Eva. I still got hold of the last copy at FNAC bookstore in Brussels of the book Avril, Mai, Juin by Jean-François Jonvelle which features a whole bunch of nude photos of Tina Sportolaro. (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9)

Now compare the woman in the scans I made from the book with my vidcaps of Tina and the collages of Scanman of Eva Cobo: they are the same woman and since the subject in the book is clearly Tina, the woman Scanman labels as Eva Cobo is Tina Sportolaro and his Tina is Eva Cobo (Tina is also built heavier than Eva Cobo, in fact Tina is built quite heavy for a French woman). I just want to get all the facts right.

Then, you'll find 4 scans of Drew Barrymore in the parking lot like they appeared in Italian paparazzi mag Novella 2000 of November 25, 1999. (#1, #2, #3, #4) Not new but now you have the whole bunch together. For those who read the text : mutande is Italian for panties. So 'dove sono le mutande di Drew' translates as "where are Drew's panties?"

Also from Novella 2000, but from early August this time, is a scan of Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut. I don't know if this is really Nicole, I didn't see the film either, but it looks like her. The accompanying text says that this is a sequence where Tom Cruise suspects his wife of being unfaithful to him and in his fantasies he sees her having sex with a seaman. I don't remember if this picture was on the Fun House before.

Furthermore there's still a collage of Season Hubley in Hardcore which is better than the one in the Encyclopedia. Not top quality either but the copy they showed on TV certainly had had its best time.

Finally an extra for the Spanish readers. Here are some vidcaps of Spanish actress Ana Belén in "La pasión Turca". She made a lot of films according to the IMDb yet there isn't that much of her to be found on the net. By the way, seeing all these pictures of naked people engaged in intercourse on your site and Scanman's remind me of an old joke by Flemish stand-up comedian Urbanus. It goes as follows: "When I was young I thought my father knew magic. One day I was peeping through the keyhole of my parents' bedroom door and what did I see ? I saw my dad lying there on the bed, flat on his belly, stark naked, with his knees up in the air! How did he manage that. Isn't that magic?"

Finally, some older galleries

PLUS Fred, or as he is known in the ancient Elventongue "Frodo", specializes in "outing" the harder action from the wholesome girls of Page Three and Playboy Newsstand Specials. Today he has Kirsty Smith, who was in  Playboy's "Girlfriends" special. She does much more here. This material is quite graphic.
