2.0 out of 5 stars the sizzling saga of a wide open marriage, 28 Feb. 2013
Tina Marie kills her husband, John Leslie, for being a lying, cheating bastard in this film about how their open, swinging marriage goes really, really wrong. Joey Silvera plays Marie's forbidden fruit and Leslie's best friend and white-hot blonde Joanna Storm plays the neighbour lady who has her cake and eats it whenever the hell she wants. It's all shot in various New York penthouses and swingers clubs and it's a fun mid-eighties time capsule.

The sex here is a blast with Leslie dishing up great scenes every time whether he's with Marie, Storm or Honey Wilder and a couple of chicks in real Girl Scout uniforms.

3.0 out of 5 stars She's not a little Pussy, 20 Feb. 2013
While many of the porn films during this era still tried to have something resembling a plot, few were as out there as Curse of the Cat Woman. A riff on the old cat people flicks, this has a group of people who can apparently turn into big cats living it up at clubs. Selena Steele is at her best here, Rocco Sifredi (in an early role) doesn't say much (which is good). As long as he's only around to provide his extraordinary "talent" he's not irritating, and Patricia Kennedy is at her hottest. The scene of Rocco and Kennedy going at it in bed while Steele sleeps next to them is a scorcher, and the best of the film.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Texas Flood (Audio CD)
Now here's a guy who helped keep the blues alive during its lean years and in particular revitalised texas blues . You can hear his forebears albert and freddie king ,t-bone walker ,buddy guy and indeed clapton quite clearly in his dextrous playing .

Problem is that vaughans just doesn't sound like a songwriter (the weedy chuck berryisms of "love struck baby" had me cringing) and his voice is a long,long way off what i expect from a great blues artist . Which might be why the best tracks here for me are the instrumentals "rude mood" "testify" and the beautiful late night feel on "lenny" that show just what a talented player he was and also keep your mind away from the lame production and limited rhythm section he had which marrs the record as much as anything .

4.0 out of 5 stars A Farewell To Kings, 17 Feb. 2013
This review is from: A Farewell To Kings (Audio CD)
On this album Geddy has also started using synthesizers, and Neil's drum set has probably doubled it's physical size with all kinds of percussions, so the sound texture is richer here than on their "2112" album. The opener and the album title song is a fine rock anthem with imaginative rhythms and good compositional parts. The follower "Xanadu" is also a fine composition, but the song has much better treatment on their "Exit...Stage Left" live album. "Closer to The Heart" is also a nice track, but it too works better on the mentioned live album. The true highlight for me on this album is it's closer, "Cygnus X-1". As a small epic it works wonderfully, there are some very fine rhythmic movements in it, and the overall feeling is raw and great! The voyage to the heart of a black hole is truly a rough rollercoaster ride! Recommended highly!

3.0 out of 5 stars House of opportunism, 17 Feb. 2013
"Roundabout" is nothing more than a condensed re-packaging of the 2001 album "Live from the House of Blues". While that album included tracks from the then current album "The ladder", these are unceremoniously dumped in order to fit the tracks onto a single disc. This effectively leaves seven classic Yes numbers, all of which have featured in the band's live set over many years and appeared on other live albums.

The ommision of the more recent songs will be considered by many to be no great loss, although "Homeworld" is a fine piece in the best traditions of the band. The performances here are of course superb, but one cannot help but feel that this is nothing more than blatant opportunism.

There is nothing obvious in the packaging to indicate that these renditions are already available and are in no way rare. The selection of just "classic tracks" (although some such as "Close to the edge" were not included in the gig) makes for a track listing which will catch the eye of any Yes fan.

If you do not have the "House of blues" album, this is a cheap way of obtaining the old songs included on it. If you do have it, there is nothing for you here. By the way, in a real stroke of irony, the title track is faded before it concludes, and not for reasons of space!

4.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Tell You Why, 17 Feb. 2013
Several Eagles compilations have one strange feature in common. They contain a bunch of tracks mostly in chronological order, but one of the tracks from The Long Run is thrown in a wrong place. On this compilation, that song is "I Can't Tell You Why", which is my favourite track of Eagles' then-swansong album. It is dumped between "James Dean" (from On the Border, 1974) and "Lyin' Eyes" (from One of These Nights, 1975), and I simply can't tell you why.

Otherwise, I don't have so much to say about The Very Best of the Eagles. The basics. I am not a fan of "Witchy Woman", "Lyin' Eyes" or "Take It to the Limit", but on the other hand, "One of These Nights" has always been a favourite, while I like "Doolin-Dalton", "Hotel California", "New Kid in Town", "I Can't Tell You Why" and the other Long Run picks as well. It still feels weird how "One of These Nights" seems to anticipate everything Bee Gees were yet to embrace back in '75.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Devil's Right Hand, 17 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Copperhead Road (Audio CD)
I'm not much of a country/western type of guy, but this is just about the only stuff in the genre I'll listen to. But it's not just a country album, it's country that rocks. Literally.

Bagpipes pretty much fit country or rock like my wife would fit in her mum's jeans from the 80's (not at all), but it works here. Just listening to the chilling bagpipe riff (a sample played on a keyboard) on the opening/title track tells your ears they're in for a treat. It's really a classic song. The next two tracks, Snake Oil and Back To The Wall, are not as strong but Earle makes great use of the many instruments he can play. The Devil's Right Hand has always been a favourite of mine, especially the lyrics. Then Johnny Come Lately but not too late, and it has whistling. Think about that. What other rock song could get away with that?

Now the second half of the album comes up, and these five songs are definitely not as good as the previous. You Belong To Me has a cool drum machine pattern, probably the catchiest part of the album besides the whistling in the fifth song. However, these love songs are too cliché to be called classic. Nothing But A Child is plain boring, being a country re-telling of Christ's birth. Why don't you just say "Read the bible and go to the part where Jesus is born, and imagine it as a country song." It makes just as much sense and isn't as boring.

Despite the fairly weak second half, Steve Earle nevertheless created a masterpiece that should be owned by any country music lover, or by anyone who isn't afraid to delve into different genres. It really is unique.

3.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to believe... just beware, 10 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Candyman [DVD] (DVD)
Based on a story by Clive Barker and skillfully written and directed by Bernard Rose, Candyman rises above most horror films by eerily suggesting that some urban legends--in this case a particularly frightening one--have a spooky basis in reality. The legend of the Candyman is a potent one around the high-rise tenements of Chicago's Cabrini-Green housing complex, where the residents speak of a dark, ominous figure who appears when his victims say his name five times in front of a mirror, then mercilessly slashes them to death. Upon learning that the Candyman is rumoured to live in one of the vacant tenements, a University of Illinois researcher (Virginia Madsen) investigates a recent murder at Cabrini-Green. She learns that the Candyman (played by Tony Todd) is both unreal and chillingly real--a supernatural force of evil empowered by those who believe in his legend. He is a killer made flesh by the belief of others, and the young researcher's investigation is a threat to his existence. What happens next? We wouldn't dare spoil the chills, but rest assured that writer-director Rose has tapped into a wellspring of urban angst and fear, and Candyman serves up its gruesome frights with a refreshing dose of intelligence.

3.0 out of 5 stars Who can save the universe?, 10 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Barbarella [DVD] [1968] (DVD)
This movie is worth watching for the great (and regularly changed) costumes. It's also nice to know where "Duran Duran" got their name from. The story is not memorable...but the sets and costumes are "out of this world". Be prepared for a fairly slow film...and don't expect to get emotionally involved...or attached to the costumes...which are often conveniently torn by evildoers. And don't see the director's cut because it includes moments that shouldn't have been there in the first place.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...and this is how SHERIDAN TOOK GRANT!, 10 Feb. 2013
Funny and romantic occupation comedy shows the better side of Grant and Sheridan. He's forced to go through a series of humiliations (a la Bringing Up Baby) before and after marrying no-nonsense Sheridan. In order to get on a ship with his wife he's even forced into a VERY unconvincing drag (remember, we're talking about Cary Grant here). Very nice photography and directing mask a patched-together story.
