    Past Tense


    [An earlier version of this PT was originally posted on November 27th, 2013 on JoBlo's "DVD, Blu-Ray & Home Theater Discussion" forum.]

    This outing we get shot by a fellow in fancy duds in "Django: Unchained"...



    The motion picture opened on December 25th, 2012. It was made with a budget of $100,000,000 (estimated) and grossed over $162 million during its U.S. theatrical run; counting foreign receipts it made $262,562,804. The film opened number three at the box office, the following week it rose to number two.

    The feature opened against "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", "Les Miserables", "Lincoln" and "Monsters, Inc." (re-release, upscaled to 3D).

    This release originally came with an embossed cardboard slipcover which mirrored the case's wraparound. It also came with a single insert, instructions for the digital copy; UltraViolet, expired on June 30th, 2015.

    - - -

    Each of the retail giants had their own exclusive.



    Best Buy had an exclusive bonus disc (DVD) along with exclusive packaging (digipak) for the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo. This streeted on April 16th, 2013 and sold for $24.99. Their bonus disc is "Django: Unchained - Around The Globe"; a run time of 40:46 minutes. No menu screen, it just plays.

    It is a round table press conference with stars (Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Don Johnson, Walton Goggins and Jonah Hill) and Tarantino. Don't ask - do not know which country this took place in. The bonus disc had its own space in the package, not in an envelope.

    Sorry, I do not have an image or further details; FYE/Suncoast sold the movie with an exclusive comic book, DVD ($17.99) or Blu-Ray combo ($22.99). In store only, same street. Don't know how big the comic was or if part of a larger adaptation. I CAN tell you this was only available for four days.



    Target had their own bonus disc (no menu screen) and exclusive packaging as well, a steelbook for the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo, same release date.

    Their bonus is "Django: Unchained - Filmmaker Panel - Comic-Con July 2012" (San Diego, CA expo), a DVD (it came in a CD envelope). The program is moderated by Anthony Breznican from Entertainment Weekly. Guests include Foxx, Goggins, Johnson, Waltz, Washington and Tarantino.

    It has a run time of 53:30 minutes and sold for $22.99.



    Lastly Wal-Mart offered their own, a bonus disc (DVD), "Django: Unchained - Re-Imagining The Spaghetti Western". Available for DVD ($16.96) and Blu-Ray combo. It's Vudu (digital copy) expired on June 30th, 2015. The bonus has a run time of 23:18 minutes, once again, no menu screen, just plays. This came in a two disc case.

    Rant.

    Disappointed, the DVD edition is missing extras - just on BD.

    Exiled are the featurettes, "Reimagining The Spaghetti Western: The Horses & Stunts Of Django Unchained" (13:46 minutes) and "The Costume Designs Of Sharen Davis" (12:03 minutes). These things could've fit on the disc. I am sadden by their loss. Tarantino isn't know for home video extras. It should've been on DVD.

    Don't get me wrong, very glad that each of the exclusive discs from the stores are in fact DVDs.

    Bought the movie - three times over for those bonuses. All of which is housed in a four disc case; forgot what title I bought from Big Lots! to obtain the DVD case. Should be noted all of this was a blind buy. I didn't see this in the theaters, was guided by the overwhelming positive reviews.

    The first time I saw was at a friends house, I brought the movie. Didn't realize how long the film was. When we started watching, it was daylight as it was coming to the conclusion, the sun was setting. The motion picture 166 minutes, but flows at a brisk pace, didn't feel long. A great sign of a good flick, doesn't drag.

    Enjoyed it as did he and his girlfriend, no buyer's remorse.

    This is how you do it right.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Void.

    I'm a fan of the three Shaft movies; "Shaft" (1971), "Shaft's Big Score!" (1972) and "Shaft In Africa" (1973). Really hated the 2000 reboot; paid to see that in the theater. *shakes head* That's not Shaft, a pale imitation. A few years back, a thought popped in my head for another sequel with a sci-fi slant.

    In the Best Buy bonus disc - round table; Samuel L. Jackson blurts out from a comment by Kerry Washington...

    Shaft in the old West with a little bit of Hong Kong bullet ballet thrown in.
    Yes!

    John Shaft back in time. Can you dig it?

    Before I continue, a pause - go a YouTube, search for the song - "Intellectualise My Blackness" by Skunk Anansie. Play while reading...

    "Shaft Goes South" - rated R. Or something like that, title wise.



    The 1970s; Shaft is investigating a series of diamond robberies (such as Bond in "Diamonds Are Forever" [1971]). First believing it was capered by Bumpy Jones and maybe even some of Gus Mascola former mob associates. Mascola's death left a void that got filled. His investigation takes him to cache of white Chicago investment bankers known as 'The Coffer'.

    They have obtained the diamonds for a project they were secretly funding. Using the jewel's refraction in water (suspended above a layer of mercury) alongside with a mini gravity making machine (well, not so mini, the contraption is the size of a huge room - more like a centrifuge).

    The optical device opens a portal through time.

    The business men were doing research for a portfolio and uncovered a bit of history as well as a rogue physicist, Simon Ingholt. In 1860 a train containing ten million in gold bullion was being haul from Tennessee to Alabama. They want to loot that transport, take the spoils to the future; a test run to see if they can plunder the yesterdays.

    There is a shoot out in the laboratory, Shaft is pulled in and ends up on the other side. He has to find out what going on, how to get back and stop the thieves from changing history (the gold theft was the main plan, but there is a secondary racist objective). All the while being a Black man in the Old South.

    The Coffer's main weapon is their henchwoman, an Asian gal named Tsuyosa. Attractive as she is deadly; the girl has cleavage and isn't shy about it, 1970s or 1860s. Our introduction to her is a beach assassination, Tsuyosa in a skintight wet suit, emerging from the water; sunset burning out. She has zero dialog in the movie. Totally admit it, a "Kill Bill" (2003) derivative character - so what? Doesn't make it any less badass.

    Shaft would romance a period white woman (aiding him), meet historical folks, have a car chase with a train (bankers brought a Jeep with them) and save the day. With that song playing as he chases the train. *wink*

    John Shaft, a badass no matter what time he's in. And no, he would not meet an ancestor, that's tacky.



    Dude is a pro with an Intonga (Afrikan fighting stick).

    And he rides horses.

    Plus he's suave with an iron. You Goddamn better believe it! Hawk and the sparrow; Shaft and Tsuyosa fight would be the climax - battling in and on the gold train. The upper hand, switching moment by moment.

    How did Shaft get involved?



    His friend Vic Androzzi was in the diamond district buying an anniversary gift for his wife when one of the robberies occurred. There was an exchange that left the police lieutenant in the hospital in critical condition, a gun shot to the chest. Shaft promised his wife he would find the perpetuators.

    And yes at the end, back home; Vic does make it.

    Who would I like to see play John Shaft? Well in 2000 without question that answer was Laurence Fishburne. *nods*

    And now?

    I would like to see an unknown play him, so that he wouldn't over shadow the part. It's like putting Brad Pitt in a film, that's Brad Pitt playing... X, rather than seeing the character on his own merits.

    - - -

    Back to "Django"; man, I'm glad it was Jamie Foxx and not Will Smith.

    Smith was going to play Django, but pulled from the project over his inflated ego. The film is called Django, but Django isn't the main character. He was upset that the movie wasn't all about him. Share screen time? That's absurd!

    There you go, feel full? No? Maybe next time - come back on June 8th, 2017 for a super heroine, 1970s style.

    Past Tense - Twirl Girl Part I


    [An earlier version of this PT was originally posted on February 20th, 2014 on JoBlo's "DVD, Blu-Ray & Home Theater Discussion" forum.]

    Get your star-spangled granny panties, we're jet riding this out in three parts with vintage "Wonder Woman"...



    "Wonder Woman: The Complete Third Season" was released on home video on June 7th, 2005.

    It streeted against "Seed Of Chucky", "Star Trek: Insurrection - Special Collector's Edition", "Stripes: Extended Cut" and "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman - The Complete First Season".

    This release originally came with a non-embossed foil slipcase holding four, double sided discs in a digipak. There was a single insert; folded booklet with other Warner Bros. shows on DVD (fifteen of them) with a rebate offer. Purchase any two season sets, receive $10.00 in the mail with proof of purchase tabs. Twenty dollars back with any three; thirty dollars back with any four; forty dollars with any five and fifty dollars with any six WB TV titles. Offer expired on June 30th, 2006.

    Lynda Carter so proud.

    - - -

    This exclusive is a bonus disc, but not linked to any store, but rather the first pressing. Hey, it counts.



    Limited edition DVD; "Warner Bros. Television - '50 Years Of Quality' Commemorative DVD: Volume 8". Came in a printed cardboard sleeve inside S3 box. Limited quanties, do not know how many were issued.

    Run time is 21:05 minutes with three chapters. Episode is presented in full screen and in need of SERIOUS remastering; watchable, but not much more.

    Gonna talk about Best Buy, as said - was available everywhere DVDs were sold. Their weekly ad gave zero indication a bonus was included. At this particular store, season three sold for $32.99 or $27.99 if you were a Reward Zone member.

    The extra is the premiere episode of "Shazam!" live action kids show (based on the DC comic book), "The Joyriders" aired on September 7th, 1974. Sorry no menu screen, it just plays. This had not been released on DVD until then; not part of a larger release - at least not yet.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Footnotes.

    An appropriate bonus would be an episode of "The Secrets Of Isis", another live action kids show from the same time produced by the same company, Filmation Studios. Man, I'm dating myself. I was super young at the time.



    JoAnna Cameron as Andrea Thomas a.k.a. Isis. There's a reason why she was excluded. Warner Bros. owns the rights to "Shazam!", but not "The Secrets Of Isis". This is owned by Entertainment Rights, a British firm.

    Man, this is crap on a cracker. "Shazam!" (CBS) tells the story of Billy Batson (Michael Gray) who has been gifted by the Gods to become an adult, Captain Marvel (Jackson Bostwick, later by John Davey). Think Superman, 'nuff said. So Billy rides around in an RV with his guardian, Mentor (Les Tremayne).

    They stop each week for gas and stuff and find trouble. Once above his head, Billy would evoke the word 'Shazam' and become Captain Marvel who would save the day and give life lessons - along with Mentor.

    It has NOT age well. Words fail to describe how bad this is, like a poor student film turned into a series. Barely remember watching when it first aired.



    Should you care or a need to self-inflict pain; complete series was released as part of "Warner Archive collection"; official DVD-Rs.

    This streeted on October 23rd, 2012 for $34.95. A three disc set (twenty-eight half hour episodes, zero extras).

    Above left; the limited edition cover, drew by DC Comics artist Jerry Ordway, only available on the pre-orders. The right is the regular edition.



    "The Secrets Of Isis: The Complete Series" (CBS too) was released on July 24, 2007 from BCI Eclipse for $29.98. Twenty-two half hour episodes on three DVDs (with extras).

    The story of Andrea Thomas, a high school science teacher (Cameron) in Egypt at an archaeological dig. Thomas finds an magical amulet that gives her powers; flight, running fast, super strength and command the elements: earth, wind and fire. Plus mastery of phasing, she can pass through solid matter. And can see into the past within the jewel in her headband, the recent past. Lastly she has a pet crow named Tut.

    She uses her new abilities to fight crime and give life lessons. Her students, Cindy Lee (Joanna Pang) and Renee Carrol (Ronalda Douglas) do not know the secret, nor does her co-worker Rick Mason (Brian Cutler). There were crossover episodes with "Shazam!".

    Isis would be more appropriate as the bonus; she came before "Wonder Woman" - the very first female super hero on television with her own show.

    It is out of print, now going for $139.99, new on Amazon. I missed my opportunity to buy. I recall seeing it on sale at Circuit City. Too late now.



    What I DO want is the 1976 live action kids show, "Electra Woman And Dyna Girl". I remember watching this before going to school; I think this was in syndication at the time.

    'Electra' program was a female version of the 1966 "Batman" TV series; capes, tights and camp. It had a super catchy opening theme too.

    It was part of the larger, "The Krofft Supershow". This element within Krofft had sixteen episodes, each roughly twelve minutes long. There has not been any official DVD release. There was an effort to revitalize in 2001, an unsold WB pilot of the same name.

    It continued the original series, now twenty-five years later. Lori (played by Markie Post) a.k.a Electra Woman has retired and has a crappy post-super hero life. She lives in a disheveled trailer, practically an alcoholic. Her best friend/sidekick Dyna Girl (who split to become a supermodel) - Judy ran off with Lori husband.

    She's a cynical woman. Did for forget to mention the pilot was a parody? An adult take on the kids show. A fan (journalism student played by Anne Stedman) tracks down her idol and tries to bring her back to her glory days, she becomes Dyna Girl 2.0. The adventures begin anew.

    That would be a nice extra on that wishful DVD, the pilot. All of this could fit on two discs. Maybe throw in some interviews and such. Had the pilot got picked up, we would learn that the show's main villain would be none other than the first Dyna Girl - Judy has issues, that's a great idea.

    The '76 series was done in a serial format (eight of them), cliffhangers and was pure cheese. So bad it's good, unintentional comedy (shot on video). One of the baddies was called Glitter Rock, I'll let you fill in the blank. *smile* Electra Woman was played by future soap opera actress, Deidre Hall and Dyna Girl by Judy Strangis. Their day job was as reporters, working for Newsmaker magazine.

    Someone I left out, Frank Heflin, played by Norman Alden. He's the tech guy who apparently lives at ElectraBase, their headquarters. He's in charge of their master computer - CrimeScope. Try to imagine a creepy old man, the kind you would find in a 1970s adult bookstore. That's him! I can so see him peeping on the girls while they change, having an ElectraBoner.

    Speaking of porn, If they ever made a X-rated version (all the rage now) it could be called 'Nypho Woman And Gyna Girl'; her sidekick, a lesbian. But Nypho would be VERY bi, so it's a win - win. They would have sexier costumes, maybe with fishnets and thongs, very sway.

    Now you might be wonder why this sounds semi-familiar. The concept was reimagined in 2016 with Grace Hilbig and Hannah Hart in the roles.



    It's okay, but too modern and predictable. The duo have no ElectraBase or anything. They're two average women from Akron, Ohio who don homemade outfits to fight crime (in a world where super heroes are common). Along the way they become famous (get new, better costumes); causes a rift - which gets resolved in the end when the Big Bad shows up, Empress Of Evil. Tries too hard to be funny, the humor should've been from the insanity around them.

    Anyhow...

    "The Krofft Supershow" (an ABC series) consisted of the following mini shows:

    "Dr. Shrinker" - a group of teens stranded on an uncharted island are shrunk in the lab of a mad scientist, they escape and are hunted.
    "Wonderbug" - a group of teens with their magical dune buggy (it talks and flies) solve crime and have adventures.
    "Magic Mongo" - group of teens find a genie in a bottle and subsequently have adventures.
    "Bigfoot And Wildboy" - a sasquatch and a feral teen solve crime and have adventures - this later got their own (half hour) series.
    "Electra Woman And Dyna Girl" - spoken already.

    Past Tense - Twirl Girl Part II


    You did not know which program you got when it aired. Odd, I remember a sixth; two janitors cleaning the inside of a rocket, get propelled into space. The dimwitted of the two; both were stupid, misunderstood their break - Launch for Lunch. They meet aliens and get in trouble trying to find their way back home.

    ...some searching, later; "Far Out Space Nuts", a stand alone show on CBS in 1975, fifteen (half hour) episodes. Bob Denver ("Gillian's Island" fame) played Junior, the said mentioned idiot. Chuck McCann played his co-worker Barney. They had an alien critter pet named Honk. A Sid And Marty Krofft production.

    Reminds me of Dave Thomas' live action kid's sci-fi mini-series (five half hour episodes, syndication), "Rocket Boy" (1989). Sadly this too is not on DVD. Jessica Steen played Rocket Boy's girlfriend; better known to fanboys as Corporal Jennifer Chase ('Pilot') on "Captain Power And The Soldiers Of The Future" (1989), another live action kids show.

    A pause - how we got here?

    This exclusive was not on my radar of Past Tense topics, had forgotten about it.

    Project surfaced on February 1st, 2014; was looking at my online television guide. Don't have cable - was looking at over the air broadcasts. KDOC (Los Angeles) was showing an old episode of "Wonder Woman". Gave the link a click.

    That online entry sparked a neuron connection, 'an exclusive I can write about'. Started researching and found too much; presented in three parts.

    - - -

    I own this bonus, not by season three separately - from the series collection box.



    Take my hand, another story...

    Summer of 2009, Big Lots! had an explosion of DVDs, good quality titles. Movies for three bucks and whole season sets for $6.00. Most them were from Warner Brothers. I recall reading on a (different) message board that some have found the full series ("Wonder Woman"). My store didn't, was bummed.

    The following week I saw no different. On July 19th, I was present once again (yes, I do know the date).

    I asked about the "Wonder Woman" box, the clerk said no. Just the individual seasons (which had all been sold out). As luck would have it, our conversation was overhead by another. 'There's another shipment in the back. Wanna see it?'

    YES.

    Yes I would.

    So I waited next to the DVD area for her return.

    I wasn't the only one, some others heard my question and stood next to me also waiting. The clerk comes back with a medium sized parcel; opened with a box cutter.

    You know those documentaries where divers go into the water in cages to witness sharks feeding... yeah, that. She brings in the box. There must have been seven sets. I was first one in, I grabbed two. Not kidding, less than thirty seconds they were all gone. The mob emptied the shipment box.

    Bought two; one to keep and the other to sell. It was a practical reason; open both sets, get a mint collection by swapping out scratched discs - secure a mint collection. The DVDs here are double sided; twice as easy to become damaged. Man, I hate them.

    A side note, the seasons were re-released this year (2017) in a standard DVD case, now no longer double sided. Good!

    Ended up finding other $3.00 DVDs that afternoon and the bow on the day? I was able to get 20% off everything. Awesome!

    Man, I bought a ton of stuff that Summer. But like all good things, it came to an end - abruptly. You see Big Lots! wasn't suppose to have or sell them.

    Warner had out sourced to Cinram, a DVD/Blu-Ray replicator company who in turn sub-contracted to (California based, Agoura Hills) IWMB, Inc. to destroy WBs overstock. Yes, you read correct. They would rather shred unsold inventory then sell at discount - kind a like a hyena (or Disney). That company opted not the euthanize and sold them to third parties who then sold to Big Lots!.

    It took months before Warner got wise. When they did, they screamed and sued IWMB for $10 million for not doing what was contracted; destroying DVDs and Blu-rays. The studio claimed that this breach caused them to loose over $10 million in revenue as people were buying the cheaper titles instead of retail price.

    And that IWMB had sold some 2 million home videos (at least 750,000 units). This number didn't include another 250,000 units were still in the hands of other third party sellers.

    The illegal sales of Warner product have caused WHV substantial injury and unless enjoined, threaten irreparable harm to WHV.
    Defendants’ sale of the Warner product at lower-than-market prices not only deprived WHV of the benefit of possession of the product, but has also undermined and diluted the value of the home video titles.
    - from the lawsuit

    While it lasted, those weeks were heaven for DVD collectors like myself. Good times. Results? Don't know how that lawsuit ended. Oh yeah, this came to an end on July 28th, 2009 when WB filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court. None of the third parties were named in the suit - just IWMB.



    Above is the individual season sets, each had non-embossed foil slipcase. The Complete Collection just repackaged those same sets in a non-embossed, non-foiled box. It sold for $114.82 and streeted on November 6th, 2007. Can you see why I was excited? Six bucks.

    Sure, season one streeted on June 29th, 2004 and two on March 1st, 2005; both sold for $39.98. Only one of my copies of these two box sets had the extra disc. The bonus is a genuine limited edition and appear to be random.

    "The Complete Collection" - it is not.

    The 1974 ABC TV pilot (for said series) was not included in the DVD compendium.



    While Lynda Carter is best known/remembered as Wonder Woman (feminine) - wasn't the first, the honor or dishonor belongs to Cathy Lee Crosby. It aired on March 12th, 1974; 73 minutes long. There is good news, the TV movie was released on DVD-R on December 11th, 2012 for $14.99, part of the above mentioned "Warner Archive collection". And can be bought through Amazon. I need to get a copy to complete.

    - - -

    There is another television live actioner, the unsold NBC "Wonder Woman" 2011 pilot.

    The project was brought to life by producer David E. Kelley, known largely for his court, cop and lawyer TV shows. It was directed by Jeffrey Reiner.

    Kelly wrote the teleplay and was executive producer. He took the character and made her corporate, much in the same vein as Bruce Wayne, "Batman". Adrianne Palicki played the title character.

    There is a moment of finance where Diana Themyscira plans to sell action figures her alter ego to fund her night capers. Yeah. No.

    I suppose, at best it was trying to be meta. It's pretty obvious they just wanted the bare essences of the comic to create something different.

    Other bits of broken canon: she breaks a man's arm to get information, but doesn't use her golden lasso (which forces the wrangled to tell the truth); her get-around jet is visible; she is far more violent and is cold - her staff at the company are afraid of her.

    Reminds me of "The Simpson", the episode where the kids are excited to see the new "Star Wars" prequel and get two hours of galactic senate debates. "Co-Dependent's Day", aired March 21st, 2004. The film within was "Cosmic Wars: The Gathering Shadow".



    Next on fan broken hearts was the outfit. The ensemble resembled something you would buy at Hot Topics for clubbing, 'Metro Wonder Woman'. The new getup was designed by comic artist Jim Lee. The costume was revealed in mid-March, 2011 to fan rage.

    Such was the outrage that the pilot's ending was re-filmed (before they got the news that they weren't picked up). Themyscira inexplicability changes to the more iconic garments for the conclusion. Above right, Palicki standing next to director Reiner in front of a green screen in her star-spangled booty shorts (which look quite nice on her). Not a jab - a comment; Reiner looks like one of the Builder aliens from "Prometheus" (2012).

    Story?

    Veronica Cale (Elizabeth Hurley) has been making and selling illegal steroids; it gives short lived super-human strength, but has a nasty side effect - it kills with repeated use. Themyscira has been trying to link Cale to the drug.

    Had it happened, probably would've played out in one of Kelley's attorney shows. Thing are not going the way she wants and has to use Wonder Woman to bring Ms. Cale to justice.

    It ends with WW fighting a bunch of Veronica's super men at the villain's hidden lab in a warehouse (it was hokey; she kicks down a chain-link fence). This has yet to have an official DVD release, though there are various bootlegs.

    This also stars Tracie Thoms, Cary Elwes, Pedro Pascal and Justin Bruening as Steve Trevor.

    The theme song for the opening credits was Christina Aguilera's "I Only Know How to Love".

    Palicki has appeared here in a previous Past Tense, the entry for " Legion".

    Past Tense - Twirl Girl Part III




    Who?

    Model/actress/singer Nina Bergman as the character. In late February 2013, she and stuntman-turned director, Jesse V. Johnson (also wrote it) released a fan made trailer for their favorite super heroine. It went viral among fans. It's quite good, had the right amount of money behind it. I can see this being more than a couple minutes.

    Go to YouTube, type in "Wonder Woman Fan Film Trailer" in search. Or if you know how, "0NT7JaQkLUA". It's still there (as of writing). Do check it out.

    I appreciate that she looks like she can beat the crap out of you, yet still retains her femininity - a hard balance. She looks the part. Bergman has done a few movies that I've never heard of. And I haven't heard her sing.

    The fake movie trailer also stars Timothy V. Murphy, Peter Storemore, Matthias Hues and Lillianna Munro. Music by Sean Murray.

    There are several Blue Cinema interpretations.

    In 2010 there was "Wonder Woman XXX: A Hardcore Parody" starring Tori Black (now retired) from Mile High Distribution. A run time of two and a half hours. It co-stars, Gracie Glam, Carolyn Reese and Diamond Foxxx along with Anthony Rosano, Bill Bailey, Mikey Butders and Ralph Long.

    The Iraqi government has once again penetrated US soil and has sent their top spy to infiltrate America's most lucrative business, the Porn Industry. Through the help of a sultry US informant, the Iraqi spy has gained access to California`s biggest porn production sets in order to steal their secrets and bring them back home. There is only one person that can stop the Iraqi insurgence. There is only one person who can make a man crumble to his knees and beg for mercy, Wonder Woman. Will the Iraqi spy succeed in his mission to rip off America's beloved porn or will be succumb to the wealth and riches of the most sought after pu$$y on the plant. Will Wonder Woman save the day or are her powers futile against the terrorist attacks of the Iraqi infidels.
    - the back cover

    Directed by former adult starlet, Ashlynn Brooke (Google her, if over 18); took a whopping three days to film. For a blue flick that's usually shot in a day, it was a big deal. The DVD's only extras are a photo gallery and money-shot gallery.

    I saw it.

    The story, what little - made absolutely no sense, if you're gonna do something like this, have a decent yarn to tell. Hell, the rear box cover has better narrative than the video. Should you see it (if you're over 18)? That's tough. I adore Tori Black, she's so... very. But it was a mess.

    The scenes were okay. No, not porn for the sake of seeing people get intimate, just for fanboys' and fangirls' curiosity. By the way, Black did some cosplay as Wonder Woman (again), this time her outfit had effort put into it and shows. She's hot, nice boots too. The costume in the parody feels like something slapped together.



    Miss Black also did another X homage, "Batman XXX: A Porn Parody" (2010 too). Haven't watched it, but I have seen stills. A lot of money was spent on production. The characters look as they should - from 1966 "Batman". Black was hot and perfect casting of Lexi Belle as Batgirl. Man, Randy Spears looks so much like Cesar Romero's 'The Joker', damn impressive. This also starred Alexis Texas, Andy San Dimas, Kimberly Kane, Dale Dabone, James Deen, Syren Sexton and Ron Jeremy (in a cameo). It's 119 minutes long.

    When The Riddler kidnaps Bruce Waynes fiancÚ, Commissioner Gordon calls Batman and Robin to the rescue. But when Batman gets drugged and kidnapped as well, its up to Robin and Batgirl to untangle the mystery. They soon discover that Catwoman and The Joker are also behind the devilish scheme to get rid of the dynamic duo forever. Will this be the end for the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder?
    DVD has a unique special feature... story! Just the plot, minus the sex (25 minutes, like the TV show). How great is that? Other extras are behind-the-scenes footage and casting call.

    This video is not sponsored, endorsed by or affiliated with DC Comics General Partnership, Warner Communications Inc. or E.C. Publications, Inc. or any other person or entity affiliated with any of them.
    In case you were wondering how they can get away with it; from the Bat-cover.

    Black wasn't the last blue starlet to don the Wonder Woman attire, the following year, Chanel Preston played the Amazonian in "Justice League Of Pornstar Heroes: An Extreme Comixxx Parody". Ron Jeremy played The Penguin. Preston's costume was more in line of Lynda Carter's outfit. Extras on the two disc set included behind-the-scenes footage, cast interview and more from Exquisite Pleasures. The same company also did a Supergirl parody starring Alanah Rae later in 2011.



    There was another XXX production. Kimberly Kane in "Wonder Woman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody" (2015) from Vivid Entertainment. There was some outcry that Kane's outfit looked so superior to the costume that Palicki wore. The porno was truer to the comic.

    There are other adult WW videos out there (generic), a lot actually, but I'm not going to cover them all.

    One more, for the sake of originallity - "Wonder Woman Interactive: A XXX Adventure Game Parody" (2012) from Extreme Comixxx.

    This stars Chanel Preston in the title role with granny panty.



    The DVD is a two disc set. D1 is a choose your adventure movie. D2 is hard core with you picking what Preston does to you - shot in first person (you looking down). The movie part co-stars Lexi Swallow, Lea Lexus, Izzy Ryder, Kerry Louise, and Ashli Ames.

    This 2-disc set starts with Wonder Woman enlisting you for a super secret mission where you play a game, making choices and navigating your way through the mission. Make the right choice, and you continue playing maybe even getting blown along the way. Make the wrong choice, and you die and start your mission over. Make it all the way to the end, and receive a code which allows you to unlock disc-2, you Wonder Woman interactive sex experience.
    - the back cover

    A backtrack.

    One of the "Electra" serials ("The Pharoah" story line) has been released on DVD, part of the "The World Of Sid & Marty Krofft" release (streeted February 12th, 2002 from Rhino Home Video), a three disc set. Retailed for$27.97, but now sell for $89.95, new - long out of print.

    And there's another, "Sid & Marty Kroffts Saturday Morning Hits" (November 30th, 2010), a single disc, retailed for $14.93 from Vivendi Entertainment. Has the "Ali Baba" storyline, can be found now for about five bucks.

    A PT revision...

    It is out - in Australia!



    "The World Of Sid And Marty Krofft's: Electra Woman And Dyna Girl: The Complete Original Series" from Beyond: Home Entertainment, a single disc DVD. No bonus features, but the disc is Region 0; U.S. compatible.

    The series have been remastered, retails for $19.99. Don't know when it came out.

    I WANT!

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Rant.



    Miss Gadot doesn't look the part. I know I'm not the only one - too skinny. Yes, she did bulk up for the role. But not nearly enough. Look at those images of Bergman above.

    A woman who can kick ass. Add to that is age.

    Gadot looks like she's in her early twenties, she should be older - late twenties or early thirties.

    As for the costume, it works and appears functional, real world base. But I do have a complaint. It should have some color. Or rather, more color; not bright mind you, not so muted. I know, lots of folks have compared the outfit it to Xena, I'm fine with it. She is suppose to be an Amazonian, that's a compliment and besides; Xena was a badass.

    So?

    What was that KDOC program synopsis?

    Here's the the screen snap I took:



    That's why I donate to the Greystoke Monkey Torture Institute; keeping apes at bay since 1912.

    Man, TV in the 1970s was different.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Just Because.



    There something about this image - I just can't put my finger on it. Hmmm.

    It should be noted that the back cover of season three has this very image - cropped just below the waist... I wonder why? *wink* There was another picture I found... I couldn't use it, that was nearly pornographic; the outift is a like a second skn. We can conclude, she's an innie. And she wasn't wearing a bra.

    Come back here on June 22nd, 2017 for a classic; car chases, beer and dog named Fred, not in that order.

    Past Tense


    Like A Dog With A Bone Part I

    A brand new entry!!!

    This time out - we get pursued by 'The Man' who wants to kill our buzz in "Smokey And The Bandit"...



    The motion picture opened on May 27th, 1977. It was made with a budget of $4,300,000 (estimated) and grossed over $126 million during its U.S. theatrical run; counting foreign receipts it made over $300,000,000. My data is limited. Don't know its box office week rankings or what it opened against, other than "Star Wars".

    This post is for 2017's "40th Anniversary Edition" DVD.

    This release originally came with a non-embossed cardboard slipcover which mirrored the case's wraparound. There was no insert.

    This title was also issued as a combo; BD/DVD/DC - came with one insert, digital copy instructions sheet. Since I did not buy it, I do not know the expiration date. It also came with slipcover too, same image.

    - - -



    This is a Wal-Mart, limited time store exclusive. The DVD retailed for $9.99 and the BD combo sold for $14.96. Both streeted on May 2nd, 2017.

    This will have regular street on July 11th, 2017; DVD $14.98 and BD combo for $19.98. Yeah, a short exclusive window, kinda puzzled by it.

    Part of the store's "Father Day's" offerings. Yes, I know Father's Day is in June, but the store likes to get a month ahead of the holidays; big ones like Thanksgiving and Christmas often two or more months ahead. Which leaves Halloween getting screwed (my favorite jubilee).

    New here is the making-of documentary "The Bandit"; anamorphic widescreen, 1:26:18 minutes which aired on CMT (Country Music Television) on cable, August 6th, 2016.



    There are nine chapters in it. 40th Anniversary carries all the extras from the first special edition. But there is something to note on the combo set; this is also a two disc set. There is no "Bandit" documentary for the DVD. That is part of the BD disc only. The doc is on disc two of the DVD version - be aware when buying.

    Something else.

    Info came down from various philes. The audio was re-remastered from the 2012 BD released (covering in a few) - which had sound effect issues and slight synch problems. Sound effects happening mirco-seconds before it they should. This repairs the problem. Sadly the sound effects are the same; wrong engine sounds. Car purists know the difference, some of which called it 'atrocious'; inaccurate Trans Am noises and other wrong Pontiac sounds. Yes, this is a thing.

    Before you ask, I'm not that anal.

    However, the Digital Copy isn't the 40th version, it's the 2012 mix which was the 2006 mix (also covering in a few).

    The combo set has somethings not on the DVD version.

    Missing are the featurettes "100 Years Of Universal: The 70s" and "100 Years Of Universal: The Lot". Both have zero to do with the movie; studio fluff pieces. Those same featurettes have appeared in various other BD titles - part of Universal's "100th Anniversary" re-releases.

    Those two are carry overs from the 2012 BD release. 2017 has something new, BD only; Dolby Digital 2.0 mono. The film was not made in stereo.

    The 40th DVD has the newer audio mix; Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and DTS 5.1 Sound. The original mono is not available here.



    If you want the original audio on DVD, you need the 1998 release (streeted October 27th), retailed for $24.95. The film is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen. The only extra is production notes and trailer. Also came with chapter listing insert, no slip.

    Anyhow, the documentary is well worth the price of rebuying; tons of interviews with Burt Reynolds new and archival as well as his friend, stuntman, "Smokey" director Hal Needham (died October 25th, 2013), he's in clips only; passed before the doc was made. The man was quite a character.

    Hal Brett Needham was the inspiration for the lead character, Colt Seavers (Lee Majors) on the ABC series, "The Fall Guy" (1981); a movie stunt man who moonlights as a bounty hunter. It ran for five seasons, only season one is on DVD. It has aged gracefully, still somewhat cheesy - the good kind.

    The doc has many clips from various TV interviews like Merv Griffin, Dinah Shore, Dick Cavett , Phil Donahue and Barbara Walters. And Steve Martin who was guest hosting "The Tonight Show". Plus movie behind-the-scene footage and production photos. And various stories; like how things almost turned tragic, a car crash into a stadium full of people. Some of the impact footage shown. Nobody died.

    Highly recommended.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Rant.

    Many online reviews and blogs call "Smokey And The Bandit", a precursor to "The Fast And The Furious" (2001) and I'll echo that sediment, rather true. The same kind of over the top action with shades of "The Transporter" (2002), minus the creative martial arts.

    In the late 70s to early 80s, Burt Reynolds was 'The Dude', the guy who redefined suave-badass. That position would not be taken over until the late 1980s by Bruce Willis in his breakout role as John McClane in "Die Hard" (1988).

    This is a movie about transporting illegal cargo, across four states in less than twenty-eight hours while being relentlessly pursued by a hard-ass sheriff. Mixed with comedy gold, car chases and great chemistry - a recipe for a hit. After all was said and done for 1977, this movie was the only one who could keep up with "Star Wars" - coming in second in that year's box office receipts. That's truly amazing.

    And the most in your face, blatant product placement which is why it even existed - "Coors" beer. *laughs*

    I need to take a big step back for newbies in the dark, things were quite different in the 1970s. The whole story is based around something that is obsolete now like "Green Stamps"; just Google it.

    A history lesson.



    You could NOT buy "Coors" East of Oklahoma, it was illegal to sell and ship. East of Mississippi River, you were out of luck. Why?

    "Coors Banquet" beer (made in Colorado) was not pasteurized and did not have preservatives nor additives - which means it can spoil in less than a week, more so depending on how hot it is outside. It needs constant refrigeration to be safe (transportation and storage). Only eleven Western and Southwestern states could sell it.

    This made the beer prized, sought after - future President Gerald Ford hid cans in his luggage; a trip from Colorado to Washington. President Dwight D. Eisenhower had a regular supply shipped to Washington by the Air Force, no BS. So many stories of fans, like actors Paul Newman, Dean Martin and rocker Keith Richards. The beer was beloved, considered the finest in the U.S..

    Few big rig at the time were refrigerated. So it was hard to transport over long distances. One the stories that came out of the era was of Frederick Amon. Who smuggled beer from Colorado to North Carolina in a refrigeration truck, where he sold them, four times the retail price to thirsty customers at country clubs and restaurants... one dollar a can. A six pack sold for $1.50 in Colorado. *ka-ching*

    And yes, there were other beer smugglers, was profitable. Add to that - gas prices were super cheap then.

    It became moot in 1991; Coors developed cold filtering and utilize aluminum cans with a fleet of refrigerated trucks. Nobody thinks twice now. But those old enough to remember, still long for the original brew.

    Okay, you have the background. The movie - as the anniversary title gives - is forty years old. So I'm not holding back. From here on, full spoilers.

    Rich people problems...



    Texas millionaire Big Enos Burdette (Pat McCormick) and his son (proto Mini-Me), Little Enos (Paul Williams) are throwing a huge shindig in Atlanta, Georgia. Big, sponsored a race car driver who he's absolutely sure will win. And wants the celebration to be bigger than life with the best beer in all of America, but have come across the problem as described above.

    At a truck rodeo at the Lakewood Fairgrounds (Atlanta) they come across legendary driver, Bo "Bandit" Darville (Burt Reynolds). A retired fellow who would rather nap than work. But the offering of $80,000 for a single job, spurs his attention.

    The task - transport 400 cases of "Coors" from Texarkana, Texas to Atlanta; do it in less than twenty-eight hours.

    Nods and hand shakes. More than just beer, the Burdette are high stake gamblers.



    Bandit recruits his best friend, truck driver Cledus "Snowman" Snow (Jerry Reed) as well as his dog, Fred (just because).

    Snowman drives the truck. Bandit drives his Pontiac Trans Am as recon, ahead of Cledus; effectively a scout and blocker - the car that gets the attention of the police while the main vehicle continues.

    Game on.

    Past Tense - Like A Dog With A Bone Part II


    Things go well; arrive at pick-up point early, load up - ready to race.



    Things run afoul when Bo saves a runaway bride (in full dress) Carrie (Sally Field) who's fleeing a passionless (borderline retarded) marriage with the son of a Texas Sheriff, Junior Justice (Mike Henry).

    Yes his first name is "Junior", which would make him Junior Justice, Jr., just go with it.

    Little did he know, Bandit in helping, has greatly insulted the honor of the man's father - Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason).



    This will not stand, not humiliated.

    This man will go down, jurisdictions be damned!

    Justice and son give chase in their police cruiser and soon have valid reasons to apprehend; vehicular violations.

    Now more than a race; our heroes are helped along the way by various fans and fellow truckers via the CB radio network. Lots of colorful peripheral characters. This was one of the movies that made CBs popular. Another is "Convoy" (1978; special edition DVD and BD released in 2015). CB = Citizen's Band (civilian radio for communication).

    They get so close when the big guns are called; roadblocks, police helicopter and a serious number of cruisers all hunting Bandit and Snowman. Four miles to go, might as well be a million. It is Cledus who decides, it's worth the trouble and charges the blockade; because of insurmountable odds - Bo had given up.

    A path is made, Bandit follows; in the chase, other cop cars crash into each other, creating a new barricade, keeping all the other police cruisers out. Our gang reach their destination with ten minutes to spare, the speedway race, still on going - no winner yet. The fuzz is coming in less than a minute.

    Not wanting to be caught, Bo, Carrie and Snowman take an additional challenge, double-or-nothing; Little Enos wants clam chowder from Boston - in less than eighteen hours. They agree, the four (hey, Fred counts) escape in Big Enos' Cadillac, ditching the Trans Am and big rig.



    All this time, Justice did not know the identity of the trucker or Bandit.

    As a sign of respect for all the trouble caused, he reveals himself to the rage filled law man as he drives by Justice's wrecked car; 'catch me if you can.'

    A new chase.... the end.

    It's a quick ninety-six minutes flick. And I'm not doing... justice to all the various moments, like the diner scene, pissed off bikers, unfinished suspension bridge and girls in hot pants among others.



    You have good plot outline, but more happens. Funs stuff and so many memorable one liners. Most of Gleason's dialog was improvised.

    Case you're curious, Snowman drove a 1974 Kenworth W900.

    - - -

    So - why called "Smokey"?

    This is because of State Patrol trooper's hats; they look like the hat worn by "Smokey Bear" (the U.S. Forest Service mascot). Some other vintage slang for law enforcement is "Local Yokel" and "City Kitty".

    'City Kitty And The Bandit' doesn't have the same ring, though that sounds like a cartoon for kids.

    - - -

    Lets do this chronologically, but deal with the movies first.

    As I wrote, this was a huge hit and Hollywood doesn't like leaving money at the table. So two sequels were made.

    "Smokey And The Bandit II" (1980). And "Smokey And The Bandit Part 3" (1983). The last one is considered the worst. But there is an urban legend attached; an alternate cut...

    Snowman took over the Bandit role which is the theatrical release. But early on there were talks that none other than Jackie Gleason would play two roles, Bandit and Sheriff Justice, a meta performance. It is said, it was filmed; test audiences were so confused, so all the Buford-Bandit scenes were reshot with Snowman. Before the alleged reshoot, Jerry Reed wasn't cast. In fact the teaser trailer didn't list him.

    Some claim to have seen production photos of Gleason in the Bandit outfit.

    Real? An early title - "Smokey Is The Bandit: Part 3".

    Don't know. Man, that would be strange to see. What actually keeps this Hollywood legend alive is the teaser with Justice addressing the audience...

    I finally figured out a way to trap him. I have put myself in his place. Also his boots and his shirt and his hat and his coat. And his mustache. In short, I have succeeding in becoming my own worst enemy - The Bandit. So if you think the first two go arounds was something, you just watch my smoke this time.
    Only "II" is on DVD separately; I own it, but I'm missing the insert. The third has yet to be released on its own.



    A trilogy was released on DVD on January 20th, 2004, "Smokey And The Bandit: Pursuit Pack" for $19.98. All of the films presented as non-anamorphics with no extras, minus their trailers; three movies on two discs, no slipcase.

    Wait, I take that back. The "Pursuit Pack" also has first film in mono too.

    This was a cheap cash grab, folks were disappointed.

    But as I wrote, Hollywood doesn't like leaving money at the table - so a second collection was released, six years later.

    October 12th, 2010, streeted "Smokey And The Bandit: The 7-Movie Outlaw Collection" for $26.98. A four disc set. This can be found now for less than ten bucks. It came with an insert, no slipcase.



    Now, you are asking - but you said there was three movies? Yup, there were - and in 1994 part of a syndicated movie series, "Action Pack" (in Los Angeles, aired on KTLA, channel five); there were four TV movies. Don't get excited. Far lower budget with a discount Reynolds in (80s teenage heartthrob) Brian Bloom as the Bandit:

    "Bandit Goes Country" (January 30th, 1994), "Bandit Bandit" (March 13th, 1994), "Beauty And The Bandit" (April 3rd, 1994) and "Bandit's Silver Angel" (April 10th, 1994).

    "Action Pack" had a rotations of movies; "Hercules" (before it became a series), "TekWar" (based on William Shatner's novels), "Midnight Run" (based on the 1988 feature), "Vanishing Son" and "Bandit".

    The first one was directed by Needham and co-starred Elizabeth Berkley as Beth. These TV movies were loosely based on the feature. Here Bandit is helped by the governor's son Lynn (Brian Krause). None of the other original characters are portrayed or actors appear.

    The car now is a Dodge Stealth.

    I remember when these first aired - mediocre. Anyhow, the theatrical movies - the first two are presented in anamorphic widescreen (same individual release of "II"). Part 3 is letterbox. And all the TV movies are full screen as they were when they aired. This collection had no extras, minus the trailers from the theatricals.

    - - -

    Various special editions of the first movie.



    The first special edition was DVD only on May 30th, 2006 for $19.98. It came with a foil slipcover that mirrored the wraparound. It opens up (like a book) with film trivia inside.

    This is when the movie got a new audio remix and the various annoyances it brought. There is no mono track for the film.

    As mentioned earlier, Universal Studios re-released various catalog titles, now with a foil slipcover celebrating their 100th Anniversary. These things opened up like a book with a time line of popular Universal titles in that decade.



    The film, as that special edition was re-released June 5, 2012 on DVD ($14.98) and BD for $19.98 (also with slipcover).

    Pretty much all of the DVDs were repackaged with these new slipcovers, no new mastering or bonuses.

    Now including digital copy inserts.

    I can name a few; "The Incredible Shrinking Man" (1957), "Airport" (1970), "Despicable Me" (2010), "Jaws" (1975), "The Birds" (1963), "The Blues Brothers" (1980), "Imitation Of Life" (1934/1959; both original and remake set), "Babe" (1995), "Earthquake" (1974), "The Bourne Identity" (2002), "The Bourne Supremacy" (2004) and "The Bourne Ultimatum" (2007).



    Then re-re-released on January 7th, 2014; the same prices on DVD an BD as the 2012 editions. This is the exact same version, the only difference is a new (basic) slipcase that reads "1970s Best Of The Decade". There were several other 1970s movies which got this slip.

    Before you ask - don't know if the '14 titles came with digital copies; never bought them.

    There you go.

    Come back on July 6th, 2017 for another slice of store swag. July's theme is "Master". It's not like you have something better to do. Don't give me that look. C'mon, the internet was made for porn and goofing off. And I AM the latter. And I think I do a mostly competent job.

    Take that, guidance counselor!

    Have a safe and enjoyable Fourth.
