'20s porn, 12 December 2003
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is actually a very well-made period piece, taking place in the prohibition days with a great cast and better-than-average production values.

SPOILERS AHEAD (like it matters in a movie like this):

Gangster Dutch (Harry Reems) has just been dumped by his foul-mouthed dame, Jessie (Cara Lott). When he meets cigarette girl Katherine (Ginger Lynn), he renames her "Kitty", and makes her his broad, much to her delight. The only problem is that Kitty is a lady and Dutch likes his dames trashy. So, he hires potty-mouthed, trashy broad Rita (Amber Lynn) to teach Kitty the ropes. Rita proceeds to teach Kitty how to be trashy with her first lesson being an educational romp with newspaper boy Jimmy (Tom Byron). Kitty begins to really enjoy being trashy and begins being bitchy and spewing obscenities left and right, that are quite hilarious coming from her, but I believe that's the point. There is another subplot involving another gangster, but the high points of this film, besides Ginger Lynn's comedic approach and Amber Lynn's over-the-top cheese, are some memorable sex scenes: The Ginger/Amber/Tom session is quite steamy, as is the Ginger/Bunny Bleu pairing, which is a lot coming from me since Bunny has never buttered my biscuit; so this was a nice surprise. There's also a nice DP performed by Cheri Janvier with Marc Wallice and Francois Papillon in a boxing gym. If you like good classic porn, get this rare gem if you can find it.

Three-dimensional Jason!, 17 February 2003
6/10

The last of the scary ones, "Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D" is one of the best in the series. The plot does have some holes in it and sometimes the acting leaves a lot to be desired, but the interesting component of the film is its use of 3-D. Don't let the 3-D aspect fool you into thinking the movie is bad (as in "Jaws 3-D" & "Amityville 3-D"). The film is great; as far as these type of slasher flicks go. Highly recommended.

Back on track..., 17 February 2003
6/10

After an embarassing part 5, I was happy to see the series back on track with this installment. We are now introduced to a stronger; more inhuman Jason, as he is resurrected after being killed in the fourth chapter. There is more humor this time around; including a cameo by Ron Palillo (Horshack from "Welcome Back, Kotter"). Good performances by Thom Mathews and the beautiful Jennifer Cooke. One of the best in the series. Highly recommended.

Worthless..., 17 February 2003
4/10

First of all, this shouldn't even be a "Friday the 13th" movie. This installment has got to be the worst of the entire series. Being a big fan, I was extremely disappointed by the way the producers insulted my intelligence in trying to make me believe that this simple man was capable of the same magnitude of strength and imposed bodily-injury that Jason Voorhees is accustomed to. The plot is lame and most (not all) of the acting is terrible. I can't say much more about this without spoiling it; even though the movie itself is so spoiled, it reeks like rotten eggs. See chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 instead. My rating: 2 out of 10.

Not what it's cracked up to be..., 17 February 2003
4/10

Don't be fooled by the title. I was disappointed when I first saw this back in '89 and kept waiting and waiting and waiting for Jason to take Manhattan. Anyway, this is the worst of the series (tied with Part 9) after Part 5 of course. Worth a look if you have nothing else to do and you come across it late one night on cable.

What a refreshing change..., 17 February 2003
7/10

What a refreshing change from the last four installments! From the suspenseful opening to the great ending, "Halloween H20" follows the first two chapters. This really should have been "Halloween 3". I'm so glad they ignored the other useless sequels and brought back some of the feeling from the first two. Not that the other sequels have no merit; they simply should not have been "Halloween" sequels. Jamie Lee Curtis gives a great performance as a haunted Laurie Strode, who is forced to fight her demons once and for all. There are also some inside jokes throughout the film that only true horror fans will get. Highly recommended after viewing the first two chapters. Also starring Adam Arkin, Josh Hartnett, Michelle Williams, LL Cool J and Janet Leigh.

Another one..., 17 February 2003
6/10

Still watchable and entertaining, but starting to get tired. More of Jason slashing campers; only this time, it's supposed to be the last sequel. Hmm...I don't think so. Recommended only if you've seen the first 3.

Psychic Fun..., 13 February 2003
6/10

Ginger Lynn stars as a psychic, whose friends come over for some fun with Ginger's crystal ball. Body possession and sexual encounters soon follow. The acting is pretty bad; especially during the body-possessing scenes. There is also an incredible solo scene involving Terry Lynn and her ejaculate. Something that was rarely shot in those days. Recommended for a few (unintentional) laughs and some good sex. Also starring Kristara Barrington and Cara Lott.

Ginger's Fan Club..., 13 February 2003
7/10

The last of the Ginger Lynn Vivid Video under the direction of Bruce Seven. There is even a small tribute to him in the very last shot. Ginger Lynn plays herself in this self-mockery of her fan club. Contestants win encounters with many of Ginger's assistants; and the grand prize winner wins a role with her in a scene from the next movie she's shooting. Lots of great sex scenes; including a hot threeway between Ginger, Sharon Mitchell and Tom Byron. Also starring Bionca, Krista Lane and Patti Petite.

Love Doll Ginger..., 13 February 2003
7/10

Ginger Lynn stars as a science project blow-up doll, who with the help of some secret lust potion and the spice ginger, becomes a living doll. The sex is better than average and the acting is okay. Rick Savage's role as the mad scientist is the funniest performance I've seen in a movie like this in a long time. Also stars Kari Foxx and Jennifer Noxt.
