Meet Monica Velour

XXX marks the dramatic spot.


Drama

Rod Lott
Romancing a porn star: If "The Girl Next Door" was the Hollywood fantasy, "Meet Monica Velour" is the grim reality — comparatively speaking, of course.

X

‘X’ marks the scene of the crime.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Not to be confused with a certain superhero series or a Spike Lee biopic, “X” is an unrated thriller about an X-rated lifestyle: having sex with men for money.

Adventures in Pornoland

Goes flaccid fast.


Drama

Rod Lott
Strangely, the single most interesting aspect behind "Adventures in Pornoland" isn't even mentioned in the film or on its box: that its story is essentially a put-on, with only the actors playing the engaged couple in on the "joke." Everyone else presumably thought they were part of a documentary.

42nd Street Forever: Blu-ray Edition

A treasure trove of trailers that titillate.


Action

Rod Lott
Since 2005, Synapse Films has helped keep the sticky-floored spirit of grindhouse cinema alive by issuing collections of coming attractions under the 42nd Street Forever banner. Interested parties can catch up on the half-dozen titles thus far on DVD (I have, minus the lone XXX-Treme one) or opt for the new Blu-ray Edition. It's essentially a "greatest hits" piece, culling 80 trailers from all previous volumes.

Project X

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.


Comedy

Rod Lott
When a disc begins with a Jackass-style disclaimer, as Project X does, you know things are going to get crazy. But seriously, if anyone thinks something this slickly made is real, they deserve to do something stupid and get arrested for it. Like make Project X.

The Disco Exorcist

Beelzeboobs.


Comedy

Rod Lott

A title like The Disco Exorcist just screams, “Why wasn’t this part of Grindhouse?"

Cherry Bomb

It's a real dud.


Action

Rod Lott
With the John Cougar Mellencamp song "Cherry Bomb," our hearts were really thumping. With the film Cherry Bomb, however, it barely registers a pulse.

Hard more in Ardmore


CFN

Gazette staff
Something tells us Roy Johnson would’ve loved Fifty Shades of Grey, especially in the bathroom. That’s because the Healdton oilman and Ardmore newspaper publisher, who died in 1960, left behind a prized possession that novelist Larry McMurtry just unloaded for $2,750.

Vile

Not for the weak — duh.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Vile, we may have a new cinematic achievement: the first torture-porn film to open with a quote from Gandhi. Take that with a grain of salt — or perhaps the box of kosher salt poured into the wounds of some sad bastard by some demented madman in the prologue.

Hostel / Hostel: Part II

Hurt so good.


Horror

Rod Lott
Few critics are unable to see through the violence and admit there's a real artfulness at work in Eli Roth's pair of Hostel films, both now available in their unrated director's cuts on a single, budget-priced Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment.
