:laugh: Well I think you should include more reviews like that! Keeps us on our toes... ;)
Maybe occasionally, but I don't think that I'm really the guy for this (the others review the mainstream stuff better that I can) and I've wrote many reviews for most known movies here (Xanadu, Uwe Boll's movie, Last house on the left, Grease 2, ...). Don't forget that I must have something to say about a movie to review it, by exemple this isn't because I watch something like Officer and Gentleman that I will have something interesting to write about the film (positive or negative).

edit : I've an idea for a theme marathon that could please you this weekend, since it had some well known movie in it and no this isn't the one I've talked about last week in the pete's marathon thread (I haven't receive all the movies for it). I will decide tomorrow if I'm in the mood for it or not.

Ok enough with the break, now it's time to review the genre of features that I usually do. I have a reputation to protect :devil:

MOVIE / DVD INFO:


Title: SexWorld (1977)

Genre: Couple Movie
Director:  Anthony Spinelli
Rating: XXX
Length: 1h30
Video: Full Frame
Audio: English
Subtitles: None

Stars:
Leslie Bovee   
Kay Parker
Sharon Thorpe
John Leslie
Desiree West

Plot:
From all over the country, people go to the Sex World resort to solve their sexual problems and explore their erotic desires. The place is staffed by a group of trained technicians who use sophisticated electronic devices to pair up various people in ways that they know will result in their having fabulous sex. Just dial the wildest erotic fantasy you can imagine into a central computer, and moments later you'll be joined by a partner, or partners, whose only task is to gratify your every desire; no matter how unusual it is!

My Thoughts:
A nice classic with a great cast and a good premise. The big problem that I've with this one is the fact that the number of visitors to SexWorld is too high. It means that some of the scene are very short (by exemple the Annette Haven's phantasm) or almost non-existent (the scene between Leslie Bovee and Abigail Clayton), since I like miss Clayton this is certainly deceiving. But this is a great film anyway, very classy and with some great scene like the sex phone conversation between Sharon Thorpe and Peter Johns. But I need to know where is this park, it looks like a perfect place for my next vacation :laugh:

MOVIE / DVD INFO:


Title: Hot Teenage Assets (1978)

Genre:  :yawn:
Director:  Zachary Youngblood and Daemian Lee
Rating: XXX
Length: 1h05
Video: Full Frame
Audio: English
Subtitles: None

Stars:
Cris Cassidy   
Bob Bernharding
Kathy Malwin
Molly Seagrim
Curt Crotchkiss

Plot:
Hot Teenage Assets is the story of a fox - her name is Kathy. She's blonde and beautiful - but she's a tight ass...just ask her friends. How do you loosen up a liberated lady - introduce her to the doctor... Doctor Good - and invite her to one of his weekend sensitivity sessions.

Beautiful people, touching...good feelings. Kathy soon discovers her own assets and realizes her deepest fantasies - which are revealed one by one in this classic tale of temptation discovered!

My Thoughts:
I should have known just by the synopsis that this one won't please me. Boring film with bad acting, bad cinematography (is it possible to film a DP scene worse than that?), full of bland looking and generic people, no existent story, badly directed (it even fuck an homosexual scene) and even one of the girl had her harmpit unshaved (complete turn off for me). At least Cris Cassidy is in this, but she can't save this boring mess by herself alone.

Rating :

edit because I have forgot the R rating again :slaphead:

MOVIE / DVD INFO:


Title: Alice, Sweet Alice (1976)

Genre: Horror
Director: Alfred Sole
Rating: R
Length: 1h47
Video: Widescreen
Audio: English
Subtitles: None

Stars:
Linda Miller   
Mildred Clinton
Paula Sheppard
Niles McMaster
Rudolph Willrich

Plot:
When ten-year-old Karen (Brooke Shields) is killed in church on the occasion of her first communion, her seemingly innocent older sister Alice (Paula Sheppard) becomes the prime suspect. Matters become complicated as more of Alice's family members are attacked, along with residents of her apartment building. Can a twelve-year-old girl be capable of such mayhem, or is someone else with a vicious plan destroying her family?

My Thoughts:
This film is the nearest that an american movie can be to an italian giallo. It had all the characteristics : a completicated story, weird characters, good effects and an artistic feeling. So you can easilly guess that it's a movie that I like. The story is really good, it looks evident at first glance but you get a couple of surprise turn. The murders without being too gory are really effective and look real (prepare yourself you will shivering). The acting is particullary good for this genre of film : Paula Sheppard is particullary great (after I've listen the commentary I was shocked, she was 19 years old and she looks so young).

This is really an horror film that deserves to be discover... Pete or any horror fans this is really one movie for you.

OMG... I used to have Alice Sweet Alice on VHS when I was a teen... I haven't even thought of that movie in years. I may have to re-discover that one again before too long.

MOVIE / DVD INFO:


Title: 7 Into Snowy (1977)

Genre: Fantasy
Director: Antonio Shepherd
Rating: XXX
Length: 1h15
Video: Full Frame
Audio: English
Subtitles: None

Stars:
Abigail Clayton
Kay Parker
Paul Thomas
Kristine Heller
Bonnie Holiday

Plot:
This modern-day update of Snow White features luscious Abigail Clayton as an ingénue dominated by her stepmother - Kay Parker. Jealous of her stepdaughter's beauty, mom strikes back with a plan to sexually exhaust the young lady, instead, she provides her with a nonstop orgy of purely pleasurable sex! A classic!

My Thoughts:
A real classic and a very different version that the one I'm used to, but anyway this version is already very different than the original fairy tales. This is the first adult movie produced by David Friedman a name that appears frequently in my collection, since he is the most important character in the exploitation movie bussiness : he is responsible for the creation of the nudie cutie genre, he is the creator of the first gore movie (Blood Feast), he had produce the first roughie (Scum of the Earth), he had produce one of the most successfull film in my country (Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS), he had made a lot of sexploitation classic (The Erotic Adventures of Zorro, Trader Hornee, Starlet!,...) and he had produce some of the best adult movies in the golden age (Alexandra and The Budding of Brie). Can we say that it's pretty evident that with reference like that the movie start with high expectation. Add to the mix the three principal actors in the cast : Abigail Clayton (a real classic beauty), Kay Parker (didn't interest me when I was younger, but this is completly different now since she was my age at the time of her career) and Paul Thomas (a real actor who start his career in Jesus Christ Superstar).

This film is more erotic than pornographic, yes it's an harcore movie but with a lot of class. Most of the scenes are sensual and not really graphic. By exemple, the one in the shower bring back some good memory for me (honestly, the best place in a house to make love) or the one on the beach (no memory here, never did it on a beach too much sand for me :laugh:). The acting, not surprisingly, is really good I've seen much worse in many Hollywood movies. The music used for the score (classical music and piano instrumental) add a lot too and the theme song is a beautifull romantic one.

My only problem is the fact that the movie is edited (the end sequence with Snowy and the seven magnificents is really choppy), but the only way to see the movie in its original form is to win an old betamax or an 16mm print on Ebay (if you're lucky enough to find it) and I certainly don't have that kind of money.

Even the edited version is good enough to be recommanded even if I usually prefer the complete version for any movie.

You have the nerve to describe that as a "plot"?  :hysterical:

MOVIE / DVD INFO:


Title: Expose Me Lovely (1976)

Genre: Detective Story
Director: Armand Weston
Rating: XXX
Length: 1h31
Video: Full Frame
Audio: English
Subtitles: None

Stars:
Ras Kean
Catherine Burgess
Jennifer Welles   
Jody Maxwell
Eve Adams

Plot:
Frosty Knight, a hard boiled Private investigator is visited by Karen Spencer who asks him to find her long estranged brother so that he can be told of his father's terminal illness. Frosty takes on the case but becomes immediately suspicious of Karen's true motives as it seems her long lost brother has disappeared off the face of the earth. As his investigation progresses, Frosty slowly begins to realize that he might be playing the patsy in a plot much more sinister than he could have imagined.

My Thoughts:
A pretty good detective story that starts with a mysteriously disfigured man at an hospital. Since this isn't the mystery of this film, we will find soon enough that this man is in fact Frosty Knight and we will find what had happen to him when he relives his investigation in flashback. The story make a good use of the narative trick like a lot of old black and white detective story. In fact the case is interesting to follow and you find yourself immerse in it. The end is quite surprising too, not that the detective end at the hospital (we already know that from the beginning) but how he ends there. Evidently the acting add a lot to the enjoyment, but with the name in the cast it's not a surprise that we have a movie with sex in it and not the contrary. Ras Kean is the lead here and this is one of the rare occasion since he usually play small (but memorable) parts like in Misty Bethoven or Candy Lips (his scene with Susan McBain is the only enjoyable thing in this crappy movie). In this cast you have Catherine Burgess (great in Through the Looking Glass), Jody Maxwell (a real theatre actress good in everything), Jennifer Welles (a veteran actress from the sixties New York roughies), Annie Sprinkle (not the greatest actress but always a pleasure to see her again) and many characters actor in non-sex role. The movie had a very good musical score made by Jack Justis who is responsible for some memorable instrumentals songs in many Joe Sarno's movies.

So if you want to see what the adult industry would have become if the video haven't kill the quality in the eighties this is a film to watch. Even for those who usually don't like adult movies...
