Writing Update And The Worst Movies Of All Time

I just rewrote an article I wrote for an erotica magazine from the U. K. that focuses on women. Actually, the erotica section is new. The magazine itself reminds me of "People". I've been in touch with one of the editors, and she likes my ideas very much. Cool!

I wrote to contacts for Angelina Jolie, J. K. Rowling, and Traci Lords to request interviews. Rowling is apparently busy with her family and writing, and can't interview at this time. I'm saving the e-mail because I have someone to contact in case she is available in the future.

I have one very old Angelina Jolie post that her fans have found via Google searches. EVERYONE wants her e-mail address! They write love letters to her in my comments. Of all my posts, I think that one has more comments than any of my others. For the Angelina Jolie fans who have found my blog: don't ask me for Angelina's e-mail address. I don't have it. However, I do have a way of contacting her. I'm not going to tell you what that is. Neener, neener. evil_smiley.gif

I originally wrote an article about how sex is much more than just intercourse, but the article was too focused on straight couples. I included a section about how to find your G-spot, and a section on lovemaking between lesbians and bisexual women. I found some interesting articles that pointed out that sexuality for bisexual women is "fluid", as in it's not so much focused on gender but on the nature of the relationships involved. Bisexual women freely flow between men and women as partners. Sexuality researchers have been apparently studying this for a long time. l also found news about a brand new Swedish study that found differences in CAT scans between lesbians and straight women. That was very interesting.

I received a fun e-mail asking me to name what I thought were the worst movies of all time. So many choices!! If you'd like to submit your list of the worst movies, write to kikokimba@gmail.com.

Here's my list. I can think of plenty movies that are so bad they make you bleed out of your eyes. I didn't include "Gigli" because I knew everyone else would name it. What do you think are the worst movies ever made? Tell me in comments.

The Widowmaker - with Harrison Ford doing the worst Russian accent I've ever heard.

Spice World

Battlefield Earth

Shanghai Surprise

Boxing Helena

Motel Hell

Weekend At Bernie's (The Count and The Royal Spawn disagree with me about this one. The Count wants me to see it again, with him. I will do it, but only if I have plenty of port to drink at the same time. I'm going to need it. I thought this movie was so stupid it made my toenails hurt.)

The Granny (with Stella Stevens)

Rabid Grannies

Showgirls

Howard The Duck

Exorcist II: The Heretic

Sextette (with Mae West)

Children Of The Corn

Star Trek V

Manos: The Hands Of Fate

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band

I guess it must be a man thing... I have fond memories of Weekend at Bernie's, but what do I really know.

Just passing through while at work, so I can only mention one, but the worst movie I have seen recently was "Elizabethtown," a real misfire from a usually great director .. I just wanted to claw my own eyes out

I'm with you on Howard the Duck and Showgirls -but Sgt Pepper?
I'm thinking

Walk in the Clouds (Keanu Reeves) just ...awful
Joe and the Volcano (Tom Hanks) indescribably bad - death by movie cliche overload
It Could Happen To You - never again
and last but not least - Titanic - 3 hours of my life I will never get back.

I forgot The Matrix Revolutions...

You left out the worst musical ever made -- "Can't Stop the Music" starring Bruce Jenner and the Village People -- and the most pretentious art/foreign movie ever made -- "Last Year at Marianbad."

I always thought "Xanadu" was the worst musical ever made. A close runner up was "Glitter". "Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster" also had some really bad music.

I'll agree that Walk in the Clouds and Joe Versus the Volcano are excruciatingly bad, even for chick flicks.

There's a kid's movie called Bingo that I saw when I was a teenager. It's like some demented "Incredible Journey" story. Make your kids watch it if they've been *really* bad.

Battlefield Earth deserves every terrible review it's ever gotten. It's just perplexing. It has everything from bad acting to short sighted aliens to cavemen in jump-jets.

I'll add "A Pirate Story". It's kind of like "Pirates of Penzance", but 'updated' for the 80's. Not a good thing.

The Talented Mr. Ripley made me swear off of going to movies without reading reviews. I spent 2 hours and 20 minutes waiting for *something* to happen. It's the least thrilling Thriller I've ever seen.

I've been looking at all kinds of lists on Google for worst movies of all time. I'm completely baffled that none of the lists include Joe vs. the Volcano. I've seen a lot of bad movies. I'm nearly 50, and I'm a film buff to boot, and I just can't think of a worst waste of money and time than this stinker. Even if people don't agree that it's number one, I still don't see how it would fail to make all the lists at all?!?! Maybe it's so bad that nobody saw it?

I thought Barbed Wire with Pam anderson was the absolute pits!
