DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
HELL NO!!!!!... I love this book!
It's NOT pretentious. It's a true joy to read.
It's a high quality publication, with a lot of great pictures.
One of my favorite photos, can be found on page 115. Christina Lindberg is the first one on the left, and she looks absolutely adorable!
NOTE: scan is CROPPED due to the small size of my scanner.
As you know, the internet is FLOODED with podcasts of every kind, and those shows cover every subject you can imagine ( and some you can't ).
THE RIALTO REPORT is different, and I mean that in a GOOD WAY.
When I listen to most movie related podcasts, the hosts sound like BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD... That's NOT a good thing. It makes me want to bash their faces in with a baseball bat... That's also NOT a good thing... ha-ha.
On the flip-side, you have a show like this, which deals with adult films, and yet it's not at all obnoxious and immature.
The hosts sound very intelligent, and I have never heard any of them scream, insult, or rant.
The hosts of the RIALTO REPORT are, Ashley West, Steven Morowitz, April Hall, Laura Marks, Jill Nelson, and Michael Bowen.
The last person should be familiar to anyone that has listened to the audio commentaries found on ALTERNATIVE CINEMA DVDs.
My favorite episodes so far, are listed below.....
INTERVIEW with JEANNE SILVER
INTERVIEW with R BOLLA
INTERVIEW with JENNIFER WELLES

The above advertisement dates from 1989
Deborah Harry performing DREAMING ( left ), HEART OF GLASS ( middle ), and a duet with Kermit the frog ( right )
I like listening to Ms. Harry sing with BLONDIE, but I've always preferred watching her act.
Deborah Harry in David Cronenberg's VIDEODROME. This is one of my favorite Cronenberg flicks.
She also appeared in the movie version of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE.
I'm not sure, but I think most of Ms. Harry's movies, and music videos, have been released on VHS tapes and region one DVDs.
Agnetha Faltskog's 2013 album entitled A
This former member of ABBA has been singing since childhood.
I've seen footage of a young Agnetha performing songs from a Swedish version of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, and believe me when I say, she's got an incredible voice!... She's always been the real deal.
Agnetha Faltskog performing GET ON THE CAROUSEL live in Australia ( from ABBA: THE MOVIE )
I still remember the first time I saw her. It was on AMERICAN BANDSTAND. She was still part of ABBA, and they performed two songs ( SOS and I DO, I DO, I DO ).... Holly shit, what a cutie!...
She's also done some acting.....
Agnetha Faltskog as Lisa Mattsson in a ultra rare film called RASKENSTAM.
I'm NOT sure, but I think RASKENSTAM may have been released on VHS in Sweden, but I can NOT confirm it.
I can't find any legit - or grey-market - DVDs of this ultra rare movie.
FYI: Academy award nominated film director, Lasse Hallstrom, made many of ABBA's music videos and also directed their concert movie called ABBA: THE MOVIE ( most of it filmed in Australia ).
Ms. Faltskog's work has been released on countless VINYL discs, audio cassettes, CDs, VHS tapes, DVDs, and BLU-RAYs.

And countless others.....
35MM GRINDHOUSE TRAILERS: THE BEST OF 42ND STREET, contains 27 trailers of adult films. All of them are from a company called VIDEO-X-PIX / DISTRIBPIX.
The list of trailers is below.....
1 - DEEP INSIDE ANNIE SPRINKLE
2 - BEL AMI
3 - BLONDE AMBITION
4 - BLONDE GODDESS
5 - EVERY INCH A LADY
6 - INSIDE SEKA
7 - PEOPLE
8 - BON APPETIT
9 - BLUE JEANS
10 - EXPOSE ME LOVELY
11 - SLIT SKIRTS
12 - TIGRESSES
13 - A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND
14 - FEMALE ATHLETES
15 - BABYLON BLUE
16 - CENTERFOLD FEVER
17 - DANISH PASTRIES
18 - DIRTY BLONDE
19 - EATIN ALIVE
20 - EROTIC WORLD OF ANGEL CASH
21 - FASCINATION

24 - INSIDE JENNIFER WELLES
25 - JOY
26 - LITTLE ORAL ANNIE TAKES MANHATTAN
27 - MARASCHINO CHERRY
The list is in the same order in which they appear on disc.
They're all in FULLscreen and appear to be unrestored. In my opinion, that only adds to their appeal.
All the trailers are found on one single sided disc.
Company - VIDEO X PIX / DISTRIBPIX
NOT rated ( adults only content )
Extras - None
Inserts - Yes, a couple of flyers featuring other VIDEO-X-PIX titles
Newspaper ad for EXPOSE ME LOVELY ( NOT from DVD )
OBTAINED AT - Local flea market - still factory sealed!... There's NO way I'd buy this type of disc used!
PRICE - $12.00
Newspaper ad for FEMALE ATHLETES ( NOT from DVD )
DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?.....
NO!... It's a FUN collection of trailers, and I think it's worth owning.
I did NOT pay full price.
So, if you can find it for twenty dollars or less, buy it!
I understand that some folks were very angry about the trailers being FULLscreen, and the fact they paid close to thirty dollars for this disc.
I've also heard complaints, that some of the titles being displayed on the back cover, are NOT on the disc. I think they have a right to be upset. Just for the record, the SOMETHING WEIRD SAMPLER has the same problem.
I want to remind everyone, that most of the folks that watched these films in the theaters, were NOT watching them for their ARTISTIC MERIT. Nor, did they care if the previews were presented in their correct aspect ratio. Most of those UPSTANDING citizens were only there to get their rocks off!
Who knows, maybe one day VIDEO-X-PIX will sell a deluxe trailer set - with tons of trailers ( and NOT just adult features ).
It would be great, if they created a trailer collection in the style of their PAMELA MANN 2 disc set ( complete with booklet and other goodies ). Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Love that art!
This movie was written and directed by Barbara Peeters.
Dixie Peabody stars in this movie, and her character is out for revenge.
Screengrabs are from FULLMOON's BEST OF SEX AND VIOLENCE DVD
BURY ME AN ANGEL was released on VHS by NEW WORLD VIDEO.
It was released on region one DVD, as part of a collection called BEST OF THE B's COLLECTION 1: HOT BIKES, COOL CARS & BAD BABES ( out-of-print ).
The set was released by HOLLYWOOD SELECT VIDEO / INFINITY ENTERTAINMENT.
That DVD set was bashed - and deservingly so - by most of the folks that purchased it, and by reviewers. Why?... For the LACK of quality, HIGH price, FULLscreen presentations, and watermarks on every movie!
I don't think they would have encountered so much hostility, had they chosen to sell the collection at a much lower price.
As I write this, there is still NO legit SOLO - region one - DVD release. So, if you want BURY ME AN ANGEL on disc, you'll have to purchase a grey-market DVD from companies like TRASH PALACE.
FYI - HOLLYWOOD SELECT VIDEO also put out a set called BEST OF THE B's COLLECTION 2: NAUGHTY NURSES & TAWDRY TEACHERS ( out-of-print ). This collection got the same reaction as the the previous set!
WARNING!... THIS IS A RANT!.....
A woman named Lianne Spiderbaby, was caught with her hands in the cookie jar. She wrote for FANGORIA, VIDEO WATCHDOG, and I don't know what else.
These are the same types of publications that thumb their noses at bloggers.
Believe it or not, some morally-challenged folks are KISSING HER ASS. They are trying to portray HER as a VICTIM!
Yes, you caught us!... It's a conspiracy... All the men of this world got together and framed her!
Misogyny / misoginia have become two of the most abused words in recent memory.
Men get called misogynists, when they criticize women like her.
There is NO excuse for what she did. ANYONE that defends her has NO ethics.
Recently, I've been called a misogynist. Why?... because I did NOT want to promote a BULLSHIT, self-gratifying, fake-holiday, called WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH.... Get a fucking life!
To all the IDIOTS that still haven't figured it out, this is NOT a horror website!... This blog is about almost all genres of film - plus, tv shows, documentaries, books, magazines, and movie memorabilia.
It's also NOT a review site. I just write about my cinematic memories, my purchases, and anything I like.
I write on this blog, for the LOVE of it.
I do NOT have a narrow view of cinema - or LIFE.
SHAM-goria MAGAZINE, excuse me, I meant to say FANGORIA MAGAZINE, is a miserable waste of paper.
I used to buy FANGORIA on a regular basis. When the original editor left, I stopped purchasing it. It's been going down hill ever since.
They think they're above reproach. Well, I think it's time to flush that literary toilet paper.
FYI: I will NEVER purchase another copy of VIDEO WATCHDOG.
This blog is done for my own enjoyment. Believe it or not, even I have found my shit posted on other websites.
The words on this blog aren't pretty, but at least their mine.
I'm NOT for sale, and I don't have much in this world, but I DO HAVE MY INTEGRITY.
FYI: on a related issue, Tarantino is NOT a genius!... I'm sick of folks in the mass-media praising this guy as some sort of cinematic Einstein!... No one in the media wants to confront his habit of "chronic borrowing".....
Just for the record, THERE IS ONLY ONE DJANGO.... and he's never been chained.....
P.S. - sorry for any grammatical errors, I was really pissed, and had to choose my words carefully.
UPDATED ON JULY 23, 2013.....
If I remember correctly, it wasn't that long ago when FANGORIA was outraged at other websites, and some bloggers. Why?.. Because they were caught STEALING content from the FANGORIA website. Any of you remember that?
Now that THEIR PUBLICATION is responsible, they appear to have gone completely mute.
As far as I know, there has been NO apology... The ARROGANCE of it all.
If she were MALE, and was NOT dating a celebrity, most folks would be calling for her execution!
The HAIRY-KNUCKLE-DRAGGING-FEMALE-NEANDERTHALS ( AKA FEMINISTS ) are still DEFENDING HER, or trying to portray her as a victim!
They call her BULLSHIT BEHAVIOR, a "mistake".... WRONG!.... Delivering a package to the wrong address is a "MISTAKE"!..... STEALING IS DONE ON PURPOSE!
MAN-HATERS only care about the DOUBLE STANDARDS that are in THEIR favor!... THEIR SEXISM is NEVER MENTIONED!
As far as I know, NONE of the publications that she worked for have issued a public apology to the writers, or their customers... Or should I say, soon to be FORMER customers?
I hope she, and the rags she worked for, get SUED... Like I said before, if she had been a man, a blogger, and NOT dating a celebrity, the consequences would be much much harsher!
FYI: she allegedly has a book deal with ST. MARTIN'S PRESS... What a FUCKING TRAVESTY!... I guess they don't care about their credibility.
It feels incredibly WONDERFUL to get this OFF MY CHEST!
one really pissed-off blogger

The above ad is from 1990
The second and third advertisements are from 1978. The ads are from a company that is STILL IN BUSINESS!... The company is called VIDEO-X-PIX / DISTRIBPIX.
If you're reading this, then chances are, the VHS / BETA era was part of your life.
Well, for those of you that don't know, there are at least three VHS documentaries that I know of, and probably more on the way.
In addition, there has been a lot of activity in regards to NEW tapes being released. Plus, sales of old tapes are booming.
Everybody has their own reasons for collecting.
I don't know why I love this crap format, maybe it's the memories. As I've said before, I consider my tapes to be movie memorabilia.
PLASTIC MOVIES REWOUND
Written and directed by Mike Malloy
Directed by Josh Johnson
ADJUST YOUR TRACKING
Written and directed by Dan M. Kinem and Levi Peretic
I don't know when - or if - any of these films will be released on DVD.
Saturday, July 13, 2013
I've always had mixed feelings about movies based on TRUE events ( and films about REAL people ).
If most of these types of movies were ACCURATE, it wouldn't be such a bad thing. Unfortunately, as anyone with a FUNCTIONING BRAIN can tell you, the VAST MAJORITY of these films play fast-n-loose with almost eveything that really happened!
That's why I've always preferred documentaries to HIGHLY FICTIONALIZED and HIGHLY BIASED movies. However, even some documentaries are biased and PLAY WITH THE FACTS.
In the United States, LOVELACE is scheduled for a "LIMITED" released sometime in August.
From everything I've been told - by folks that have seen it - LOVELACE is a better movie than you would expect.
However, I've also been told by several people, that it's a "glorified made-for-tv-moive". According to them, Linda Lovelace is portrayed as a "victim".
Curiously, no one has mentioned anyting to me about the performances.
I guess I'll have to wait and find out for myself.
One thing is for certain, Amanda Seyfried is a million times better looking than Linda Lovelace ever was.
Adam Brody is portraying Harry Reems?!... Are you kidding me?!...
UPDATED AUGUST 15, 2013.....
I guess my fears about this film have been proven correct... It is indeed a GLORIFIED MADE FOR TV MOVIE.
Gerard Damiano Jr., the son of DEEP THROAT director Gerard Damiano, has written the most honest and knowledgeable review of LOVELACE that exists.
See link below.....
Gerard Damiano Jr.'s review of LOVELACE ( at the RIALTO REPORT website )
Below is a short list of "FACT BASED" movies... Check it out, you might find something you like.
KILLERS, MASS SUICIDE, AND MURDER PLOTS....
AMY FISHER: MY STORY ( directed by Bradford May - starring Ed Marinaro, and Noelle Parker ) - A made-for-tv-movie, but I don't remember watching it.
AMY FISHER STORY ( directed by Andy Tennant - starring Drew Barrymore and Tony Denison ) - I watched this movie because Drew Barrymore was in it. I haven't seen it in years, so I don't remember if I liked it or not.
CASUALTIES OF LOVE: THE LONG ISLAND LOLITA STORY ( directed by John Herzfeld - starring Alyssa Milano and Jack Scalia ) - It's been a while since I've seen this flick. So, I can't tell you much about it. Alyssa Milano was the only reason I watched it.
CURSE OF THE ZODIAC ( directed by Ulli Lommel - starring Jack Quinn ) - Never seen it.
DAHMER VS. GACY ( I'm NOT going to bother with credits ) - Are you fucking kidding me?!... They're trivializing real life ATROCITIES, by making a fucking-ridiculous-comedic-slasher-flick about REAL LIFE mass murderers... It seems as if, they're trying to turn REAL LIFE ABOMINATIONS into fictionalized horror icons!.. I'd love to put the "filmmakers" and the "stars" of this "movie" in the same room with all the victim's families... The title should have been a warning to me. I stopped watching it after about thirty minutes... Pure garbage.....
DEAR MR. GACY ( directed by Svetozar Ristovski - starring William Forsythe ) - I've never seen this movie.
GACY ( directed by Clive Saunders - starring Mark Holton and with Adam Baldwin ) - I have not see this movie yet.
GUYANA: CULT OF THE DAMNED ( directed by Rene Cardona Jr. - starring Stuart Whitman and many others ) - I don't remember much about this flick.
GUYANA TRAGEDY: THE STORY OF JIM JONES ( directed by William A. Graham - starring Powers Boothe, Ned Beatty, Irene Cara, and many others ) - It's been a long time since I've seen this movie, so I don't really remember much about it.
MONSTER ( directed by Patty Jenkins - starring Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci ) - Great performances, but I didn't like it... and that's all I'm going to say.
TO CATCH A KILLER ( directed by Eric Till - starring Brian Dennehy and with Margot Kidder ) - I haven't seen this movie in a long time. I do remember liking Brian Dennehy's performance.
ULLI LOMMEL'S ZODIAC KILLER ( directed by Ulli Lommel - starring various ) - Haven't seen it.
ZODIAC ( directed by David Fincher - starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo and many others ) - Outstanding movie! Incredible performances and camera work! I highly recommend this movie!
ZODIAC KILLER ( directed by Tom Hanson - with quotes by Paul Avery ) - This rare movie is all over the map. But, I still think it's worth watching.
ZODIAC ( directed by Alexander Bulkley - with Marty Lindsey, Philip Baker Hall, and Robin Tunney ) - I have not seen this movie.
POLITICIANS ( aka scum of the eath ).....
ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN ( directed by Alan J. Pakula - starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford ) - Incredible!... A truly great film. I can't recommend it enough.
BLAZE ( directed by Ron Shelton - starring Paul Newman and Lolita Davidovich ) - Been a while since I've seen this movie. I don't remember if I liked it. However, I did like the performances by Paul Newman and Lolita Davidovich.
DICK ( directed by Andrew Fleming - starring Kirsten Dunst, Michelle Williams, and many others ) - hilarious satire about the watergate scandal. It's like a live-action version of one of those MAD MAGAZINE spoofs. I love it, and think it's great. Highly recommended!
FROST / NIXON ( directed by Ron Howard - starring Frank Langella ) - I have not seen this.
NIXON ( directed by Oliver Stone - starring Anthony Hopkins ) - Haven't seen it.
INFERNO: A LINDA LOVELACE STORY ( directed by Matthew Wilder - starring Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon ) - I have NOT seen this movie, because it hasn't been finished.
LOVELACE ( directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman - starring Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Adam Brody, and many others ) - I have NOT seen it yet. A word of warning, do NOT believe all of the positive hype. That type of bullshit happens far too often with new movies.
SHATTERED INNOCENCE ( directed by Sandor Stern - starring Jonna Lee ) - This is a made-for-tv-movie, and allegedly based on Shauna Grant's life. I saw it a long time ago, and do NOT remember very much about it.
WONDERLAND ( directed by James Cox - starring Val Kilmer, Kate Bosworth, and many others ) - Love the acting, and I recommend it.
OTHER FOLKS AND EVENTS.....
ATTICA ( directed by Marvin J. Chomsky - with Charles Durning and Morgan Freeman ) - A made-for-tv-movie. I recommend it.
COMPLIANCE ( directed by Craig Zobel - starring Dreama Walker ) - Really great, and I highly recommend this film.
CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND ( directed by George Clooney - starring Sam Rockwell, Drew Barrymore, and many others ) - I had a lot of fun watching this movie. Was Chuck Barris a former C.I.A. assassin?... Think about it, that's exactly the kind of thing our government would do. I highly recommend this for the fun factor alone.
DEATH OF A CENTERFOLD: THE DOROTHY STRATEN STORY ( directed by Gabrielle Beaumont - starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Bruce Weitz ) - A made-for-tv-movie. I don't remember anything about it.
DOG DAY AFTERNOON ( directed by Sidney Lumet - starring Al Pacino and many others ) - Al Pacino doing what he does best. I recommend it.
ED WOOD ( directed by Tim Burton - starring Johnny Depp ) - It's a fun flick, but I've got problems with it. However, I still recommend it.
FRENCH CONNECTION ( directed by William Friedkin - starring Gene Hackman, Roy Scheider, Fernando Rey, and many others ) - This flick still packs a powerful punch. Tony Lo Bianco and Arlene Farber also appear in this movie. I higly recommend it!
NOTORIOUS BETTIE PAGE ( directed by Mary Harron - starring Gretchen Mol ) - Gretchen Mol is incredible! There are a few things I didn't like, but I still recommend it.
PEARL HARBOR ( directed by Michael Bay - starring Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, and Kate Beckinsale ) - This is a GLORIFIED SOAP OPERA! The fact that Mr. Bay directed this flick should be a HUGE warning.... AVOID!
PINERO ( directed by Leon Ichaso - starring Benjamin Bratt ) - I haven't seen it yet, so I can't tell you anything.
SERPICO ( directed by Sidney Lumet - starring Al Pacino ) - Al Pacino at his best. I highly recommend it.
STAR 80 ( directed by Bob Fosse - starring Mariel Hemingway and Eric Roberts ) - A movie about Dorothy Stratten. Some good performances in this film, but that's all I remember about it. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either.
Monday, July 8, 2013
I still remember hearing about Dorothy Stratten's murder on television. It was big news in southern California.
GALAXINA is Dorothy's most famous flick.
I've always had mixed feelings about this film.
GALAXINA is supposed to be a SCI-FI COMEDY. They got the SCI-FI part correct. Unfortunately, the comedy element is almost nonexistent.
Dorothy Stratten ( 1960 – 1980 ) in GALAXINA
I don't hate this movie, but I don't love it either... and that's the problem.
I feel bad, for having those feelings, because a lot of effort was put into this film.
I like the cast of GALAXINA. Plus, it's a good looking film. I think it was extremely creative to combine SCI-FI, cowboys, bikers, and alleged comedy together.
I also love the special effects, and Dorothy Stratten looks absolutely gorgeous.
FYI: Dorothy doesn't have any lines until the last third of the movie. Plus, she has NO nude scenes.
A legit VHS tape was released by UNIVERSAL. I think a few other companies may have released it also, but I'm not sure.
I don't know if it was ever released on LASERdisc, VIDEOdisc, or BETA.
Solo DVDs were released by RHINO, and also by BCI ECLIPSE.
It was also released on HD-DVD, but I do not remember by which company.
MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT released GALAXINA on BLU-RAY ( as part of a double feature ), and as part of a twelve movie pack called BIG SCREEN BOMBSHELLS. It's also available in one of their fifty movie packs ( SCI-FI INVASION ).
You can also watch it via VOD ( AMAZON ).
QUOTES from a Dorothy Stratten documentary.....
NARRATOR: "On December 30th 1988, forty-nine year old Peter Bogdanovich married twenty year old Louise Stratten at a Vancouver hotel. Her mother, Nelly Hoogstraten, heard the news only after the fact. She said: "Now I've lost two daughters".....
FYI: I do NOT know the name of the documentary. I saw it on YOUTUBE, and there were NO credits.
After watching this documentary, I don't see much of a difference between Peter Bogdanovich, Hugh Hefner, and Paul Snider ( aside from the obvious ).
Bogdanovich and Hefner seem so unbelievably narcissistic and selfish.
In my opinion, this documentary fails. It contains some ASS-KISSing moments ( primarily aimed at Bogdanovich's posterior ). At times, they actually try to portray him as some sort of victim.
I found the behavior of Mr. Bogdanovich, Mr. Hefner, and even Dorothy's sister, to be repulsive and nauseating....
Two movies were made about Dorothy Stratten.
A theatrical release - called STAR 80 - starring Mariel Hemingway and Eric Roberts.
STAR 80 was released on region one DVD by WARNER BROS ( out-of-print ).
There was also a made-for-television movie called DEATH OF A CENTERFOLD: THE DOROTHY STRATTEN STORY ( starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Bruce Weitz ).
DEATH OF A CENTERFOLD: THE DOROTHY STRATTEN STORY, was released as a MOD-DVD by WARNER BROS.
THEY ALL LAUGHED was her last movie. It was directed by Peter Bogdanovich.
Dorothy Stratten and John Ritter ( 1948 – 2003 ) in THEY ALL LAUGHED
I've seen THEY ALL LAUGHED, and I thought it was crap.
It was released on VHS and region one DVD, which is unfortunate for all of us.
AUTUMN BORN is supposed to be Dorothy Stratten's first movie.
It's a micro-budget exploitation flick, and like Ms. Stratten, it originates from Canada.
I have NO idea if this movie was ever released theatrically in it's native Canada, or anywhere else.
I don't know if AUTUMN BORN ever had a legit release on VHS. I used to own a bootleg tape. Unfortunately, it was extremely low quality, so it got tossed in the trash a long time ago.
You may be able to find a grey-market DVD at conventions.
Far too many folks in HollyWEIRD, continue to hire folks based on physical appearance, instead of acting ability.
You'll probably read comments by some of Ms. Stattens's obsessed stalkerish fans, praising her as a "gifted actress".
She was NOT a "gifted actress". In regards to acting skills, she was mediocre at best.
I hope that does NOT sound cruel, because that's NOT the way I meant it. It's just a reality-check.
No one will ever know what she was capable of.....
