"Operation Midnight Climax"

Operation Midnight Climax (2002) is an independent film that looks much like a student film to me. It goes way out of its way to be outrageous, and succeeds at that. Will Keenan is a paranoid who sees conspiracy everywhere, including his girlfriend, the FBI, the CIA and the Masons, and has figured out a way to fight back. His plan is to organize Operation Midnight Madness where he and a bunch of women will have Tartaric sex and "see the blue light" creating a force so awesome they will take over. Most of the film has him recruiting women for the party, while avoiding his girlfriend and the various groups that are out to get him with clever disguises like shoes with the soles on backwards so people can track him. He is also trying to get hsi foreskin re-attached, to heighten his sexual pleasure so he can more easily reach sexual Nirvana.

The only nudity is breast exposure from Andrea Graham, who is trying on costumes in a dressing room in preparation for a bachelor party. I found the entire thing amateurish and way to strange to capture my interest, but those few who have commented at IMDb have another opinion. It is sitting at 8.5, has two very positive comments and one positive review. Keenan is compared to Buster Keeton, and they praise his physical comedy. The only low score recorded at IMDb was in the over 30 male bracket, so it may be a generational thing. The excellent color footage was intercut with surveillance video giving a very uneven look. Even while suffering through this in disbelief, I had the nagging feeling I was watching a future cult classic. I will give this a C. Those who like the plot outline will probably find it worth watching.

    The Cincinnati Kid (1965)

    No nudity. Classic Steve McQueen film. The original plan for this film was for Sam Peckinpah to direct. Sam insisted on a nude scene from Sharon Tate. It so happened that the film's producer was also Sharon's agent. He didn't think the nude scene was a good career move for Sharon, but Sam was one stubborn mofo, so he got rid of ol' Sam after four days of shooting. He not only fired Sam and hired Norman Jewison, but he did one of those "you'll never work in this town again" things on Peckinpah, who couldn't get people to return his calls for a long time after the firing debacle. (He eventually recovered to make The Wild Bunch, so I guess there's a happy ending.)

    The review was written by Silver Dollar Sam, our poker guru, with additional thoughts from me. I don't much like the film itself, but that Steve McQueen was one cool cat!

    MOVIE REVIEWS:

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

     

    • 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.

     

     

    We interrupt our regularly schedulaed clips from My Tutor to get to the hot-breaking story:

    The Brown Bunny (2004)

    Vince Gallo's much-reviled art film about looking for America or oneself or something. Roger Ebert and Gallo got into a pissing contest over the version of this film screened at Cannes, but Ebert became a partial convert when Gallo re-cut it into something more comprehensible.

    My Tutor will resume tomorrow.

    SCOOP'S NOTE: Shiloh made his own .wmv for this project. It is a slightly longer version of the scene.

    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. http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ 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.

    Der Skipper (1990)

    I don't think this woman needs introducing on the Fun House because if she does you're probably reading the wrong page anyway. I mean Elizabeth Hurley of course and she entitled viewers to some mild nudity in 1990's "Der Skipper", a film in which our Liz is very fluent in German. Here are 4 clips from this cinematic masterpiece.
     

    **** Scoop's note: Tuna and I reviewed this, under the name Kill Cruise. My summary comment was as follows: "Scoopy says this film is an F. Tuna votes E+. The score is arbitrary, but the key point is this: we both hated it."

    JŁrgen Prochnow is the star, the titular "skipper", so you could have predicted a disaster. I have written several times in the past that Prochnow's picture on a DVD box has the same meaning as a cow skull next to a water hole. On the principle that "every dog has its day", Prochnow was in one great movie, the memorable Das Boot. Although he is now 63 years old, he may get a second day. He will play Schwarzenegger in See Arnold Run. This has to be some kind of curiosity item. How many cases are there where an actor was born six years earlier than the celebrity he is portraying in a biopic?

     

    The Wife on Holidays ... (1980)

    Let me end with something lighter, a 1980 Italian comedy like "La moglie in vacanza...l'amante in cittŗ" (the wife on holidays...the mistress in town). Edwige Fenech and some Italian dude practice their opera singing skills and Edwige is topless doing so.

    **** Scoop's note: I recommend this one. Not the movie, the clip. Nice quality clip, and Edwige has never looked sexier!!

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:

    Found a couple of images of Jessica McCann starkers on usenet. So I stuck em together and made em bigger and cleaned em up.

    Then I Googled the gal to find out who she is and learned she was a former contestant on the Rebel Billionaire reality show. Seems she was offered the challenge to either run across stage nekkid or sing a Britney song. She made a wise choice. And that word written across the uppermost part of her killer bum? Not a moral or biological statement. The title character of the show is he who owns Virgin Airways and all those other virginal products.

    Call it the finest in product placement.

    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 whole bunch of 'caps and vids of Troma regular and scream queen Tiffany Shepis in scenes from "Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp" (2003).

    In this batch we see Shepis topless and getting felt up in several scenes. She also shows brief pube views in image link #3 and video clip #2. Video clip #5 features a lengthy scene with Shepis riding a dude.

    Scoops,
    A little change of pace today.

    One of my favorite babes (I have to admit that I watched the TV series "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" just to see her), yes it's Barbara Alyn Woods in an episode from the "Inside Out, Tales of the Unexpected" series titled "Brush Strokes".

    Barbara is topless and gets a body paint job :-)

    • Barbara Alyn Woods (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

    Variety
    ChloŽ Sevigny Our first really good look at Sevigny in the controversial BJ scene from the Vincent Gallo movie, "The Brown Bunny" (2003).
    The Good News: Sevigny is topless.
    The Bad News: These images are from a Japanese import so Gallo's member is blurred out while ChloŽ is doing her thing.

    Kelly Preston
    (1, 2, 3)

    Preston bares her amazing breasts as well as a bit of bum and bush in scenes from the 1985 movie "Mischief".

    Elizabeth McGovern
    (1, 2, 3)

    Señor Skin 'caps of McGovern topless in scenes from the 1984 movie, "Racing with the Moon". McGovern is probably best remembered for her roles in "Ordinary People" (1980), "Ragtime" (1981) and "Once Upon a Time in America" (1984).

    MIKE TYSON BEATS UP TOYOTA
    Mike's Bank Balance: $14 - Mike Tyson was cited on suspicion of felony criminal damage for allegedly attacking a car outside the Pussycat Lounge in Scottsdale, Arizona. Asaf Alikadic, 22, said he was leaving the parking lot in his Toyota Solara when he stopped to let some pedestrians pass. Suddenly, a furious Tyson was atop his hood, screaming and punching the car with his fists. Alikadic said he's a Tyson fan but never imagined meeting him, "let alone having him on top of my hood." He doesn't want Tyson jailed; he just wants him to pay his $1400 car repair bill.

  • Good luck! Mike became enraged because he can't afford a Toyota Solara!
  • Mike doesn't have $1,400...How about if he just pounds the dents out with his fists?
  • The cops arrived just as Mike was biting off the car's rear view mirror.


    MICHAEL JACKSON'S PORN STASH FOUND?
    Well, "Bare," Anyway - The National Enquirer tabloid claims that during a search of the Neverland Ranch, police seized a porn magazine called "Barely Legal," which actually shows nude adult women, and it had fingerprints on it from both Michael Jackson and his young accuser. This bolsters the boy's claim that Jackson kept a stash of porn in a briefcase in the bathroom, which is where police found it, and used it to get the boy aroused.

  • They certainly weren't for Michael! Nude adult WOMEN? That's disgusting!
  • "Barely Legal" is actually full of girls who are too old for Hugh Hefner.
  • They also found Michael's personal porn stash: a copy of "Peter Pan."


    "PERFORMING ARTS CENTER" REALLY NUDIE CLUB
    Put A Sign Outside, Darn It! - NewsChannel 4 in New York reports that the Verona Performing Arts Center on the main street of the town of Brewster is actually an upscale gentleman's club known as Club Verona. Their website shows nude dancers, but the building's exterior gives no hint of what's inside. Some residents are angry, but the club's attorney said, "That's too bad," because "the First Amendment protects what's going on." He said, "It is a performing arts center. It depends on your perspective as to art."

  • It's devoted to the art of the plastic surgeon.
  • It's only performing arts if the people dancing naked are hairy and ugly.
  • At least it's finally getting dads interested in the performing arts.
  • So the City Council can keep on meeting there?


    PARENTS GO ON STRIKE
    Like Pulling Teeth - Cat and Harlan Barnard of Enterprise, Florida, say they've used every type of psychology to get their kids - Benjamin, 17, and Kit, 12 - to do their chores and not leave trash, laundry and dishes everywhere. The last straw came when they expected mom to mow the lawn while she was recovering from oral surgery. So as a last resort, the parents went on strike. They're living on the lawn, with tents and air mattresses; only going in to use the phone or bathroom; and refusing to cook, clean or drive for their kids until they straighten up, even if they have to stay there until Christmas. Police checked in and said the kids are in no danger.

  • They're also in no hurry...In fact, they'd like this to be permanent.
  • Here's a tip: next time, stay in the house and kick the KIDS out into the yard.
  • This is probably just the daughter's revenge for her mom Cat naming her Kit.
