Remember the beginning of the Paddy Chayefsky-Sidney Lumet film The Bachelor Party, where a group of men in a darkened room are watching a film, and we don't know what it is? That's Sexploitation! is a comprehensive documentary about a sleazy, yet strangely innocent, slice of prurient Americana. From VHS through the DVD days,

Cool Videos: Check out this epic Rambo-themed bachelor party

  • JoBlo
The bachelor party used to mean hookers and beer, but then the Internet arrived and bros across the world had to step up their game. With the easily accessibility of video cameras and free YouTube accounts, guys everywhere began the now eternal contest of one-upping each other with complicated and elaborate parties to celebrate their buddies as they leave the single life and become spouses. I have seen my fair share of videos recreating classic films, but this one takes the cake. When a...

Chain Saw Massacre and Eaten Alive Actress Dead at 64

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ actress Marilyn Burns dead at 64 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre actress Marilyn Burns, the one cast member who manages to survive Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s low-budget 1974 horror cult classic, was found dead on Tuesday, August 4, 2014, at her home in the Houston area. According to her manager, "she was found unresponsive by a family member." The cause of death remains unclear. Burns (born on July 5, 1950, in Erie, Pennsylvania) was 64. The Houston-raised Marilyn Burns began appearing in films in the early ’70s. She had a bit part in Robert Altman’s Houston-filmed Brewster McCloud (1970), starring Bud Cort, Sally Kellerman, and Shelley Duvall, and was later cast in a supporting role in Sidney Lumet’s Austin-shot 1974 drama Lovin’ Molly; however, Burns was ultimately replaced by Susan Sarandon, reportedly remaining in the production as a stand-in for both Sarandon and Blythe Danner. Also in 1974, Marilyn Burns landed the

Piggy Chops' hit 'In my City' dropped from 'Last Vegas' flick
New Delhi, Nov. 26: Priyanka Chopra's debut hit single 'In my City', which had been shortlisted for the soundtrack of 'Last Vegas', has been passed over by the producers.

A source told Multivision Multimedia that the Bollywood actress' peppy song befitted the tone of the movie where four guys well into their 60's are just trying to have fun and choose Las Vegas as their destination.

The insider asserted that the song did come up during the meetings for the short listing of the soundtrack, but unfortunately, things did not work out.

The bachelor party comedy stars Hollywood legends - Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. (Ani)

Woman in a Dressing Gown – review

I saw this movie for the first and only time crossing the Atlantic in 1957, on the Mauritania, on the way to the States. My fellow English Speaking Union scholars and I, still in the grip of Look Back in Anger and seething from the moral and political debacle of Suez, regarded it with mirthful contempt. It was the kind of stilted, patronising British movie about working-class and lower-middle-class life we were in flight from after we'd just embraced Paddy Chayefsky's Marty, The Catered Affair and The Bachelor Party, and been thrilled by Ealing's Alexander Mackendrick making his American debut with Sweet Smell of Success. It's now being revived, or disinterred, as a major harbinger of British kitchen-sink realism, a term coined in the mid-1950s by my future mentor David Sylvester.

The movie turns upon a lower-middle-class clerk (stiff-upper-lip specialist Anthony Quayle) preparing to leave his loving, depressed, slatternly

Prince William attends weekend stag do
Prince William attended his stag do at a Norfolk estate over the weekend, it has been reported. The bachelor party, organised by William's brother Prince Harry, was reportedly originally planned to have been a water-themed weekend in Exmouth, Devon. However, the Daily Mail claims that those plans were changed when details were leaked. Instead the brothers were joined by around 20 close friends for a low-key event, which the paper claims cost less than £2,500. Guests are alleged to have included William's school friends including James Meade and Thomas Van Straubenzee. Hugh Van Custem, (more)

Party Favors: The Audio & The Visual

  • Quick Stop
Rochester, NY - Ever wonder why schools today stink compared to decades ago? Every think tank moron has their dubious reasonings that appeases their corporate masters. But the truth is extraordinarily simple: Schools dumped their education films.

Do you remember those days when the gym teacher had to pad out health class by wheeling in the 16mm projector from the Av department? They’d thread up classic tales about your body, narcotics, driving safety and manners. Things which kids nowadays can’t seem to handle.

When the Vcr arrived in schools, the 16mm projector was quickly dumped as teaching tool.

Where did these classic films go? Many arrived at the city dump. However a few lucky tens of thousands found themselves on the racks of the Av Geeks Archive. This repository of cinematic education is overseen by Skip Elsheimer. He started collecting the films after I moved out of the infamous PineHaus.

It’S Not Too Late For Rooney Mara, Unsung Star Of “Social Network”

With all due respect to the actresses in the running for this year’s best supporting actress Oscar, the 2010 field is far from the deepest field in the history of the category. Nobody is — or, frankly, should be — a sure thing at this point, which inherently means that everybody still has a shot. For this reason, I’d like to discuss a name that’s been on my mind a lot lately: Rooney Mara, the 25-year-old actress who gives a brilliant performance as Erica Albright — a B.U. student whose decision to dump her Harvard boyfriend Mark Zuckerberg indirectly leads him to create Facebook — in the critical and commercial hit/best picture Oscar frontrunner “The Social Network.”

I am totally convinced that Mara would be generating serious awards buzz right about now if she, like all of the other people competing for a nomination, could have been in the United
