Coming Distractions January 27th, 2009

"Movies" for you:

Vicky Christina Barcelona
Pride and Glory
The Rocker

Girls Rock!
Open Season 2
Just Buried
Sharks in Venice
The Lucky Ones
Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired

At some point I would like to do a list of the sexiest movies to accompany last week's post. However, I started to do an informal poll of the video store employees' favorites, and then promptly lost the post-it on which I was (not so) painstakingly keeping record. So maybe I'll pick that project up again at some point. As a teaser, all I remember off the list is that Julie Christie made it on again, and the Dangerous Liaisons/Cruel Intentions duo were there as well. What about you lovely internet denizens, got any favorite sexy scenes/movies?

My new favorite words:

Bedizen (v.): to dress or adorn in a showy, gaudy, or tasteless manner.

Saltation (n.): a dancing, hopping, or leaping movement or an abrupt movement or transition.

And since we're already talking about words, here are some blogs about the misuse of punctuation and common forms of speech

Allan: He's Ken's "Buddy"
They're very "close"

More Fun With Words

I've mentioned before, and is always fun. Yet another delightful record of (barely suppressed) emotion expressed through words is:


Undead Molly said...

Blade Runner
The Unbearable Lightness of Being
Henry and June
Like Water for Chocolate
In the Mood for Love (Fa Yeung Nin Wa)

I feel like this list is too hetero, but... sorry, I can't think of any more.

Better than Chocolate was quite good.

Staying Alive (Cynthia Rhodes!)
Ninja III: The Domination (Lucinda Dickey!)

does h/c count?

Ultra Flesh (Seka!)
F... and Lots of It (Annette Heaven!)
Visions (Sharon Mitchell!)

most unsexy:

Her Name Was Lisa (1980)
Lipstick (1976)

not sure whether its sexy or unsexy but something involving sexuality is going on with Pia Zadora in "Voyage of the Rock Aliens"
