    Interesting. On the plus side, the similar book on punk rock movies, "Destroy All Movies!", is really great--but, personally, I tend to like punk a lot more than metal.

    On the negative side though,"writing" for Mr. Skin is perhaps not something to be proud of. Will he be making a lot of awful puns and coming up with stupid names for female body parts that would make a sixth grader groan? Will he be shamelessly salivating over ever halfway attractive actress whoever took her clothes off in a movie (or who he just wishes did)? The guy might be a good writer, but it's REALLY hard to tell from his duties with Mr. Skin.

    I'd be interested to hear what people think of this though when it comes out. . .

    Even though this is a cash in on Destroy All Movies!, my interest is certainly perked.

    Well, we all obsess about female parts from time to time...

    "Anyway, I would divide this "Best Tits" thing into divisions, like cup sizes. There are some great-looking girls with ample breasts like Lindberg and Fenech, but there's also some very attractive "surfboards" (I have kind of mother-daughter thing going for 60's/70's actress Jane Birkin and her daughter, present-day French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg). On the other hand, I don't personally care for most woman bigger than a D-cup. I'm definitely not a fan of Kitten Navidad, Uschi Digart is overrated, and Chesty Morgan was a frickin' horror show.

    There also should also be a separate category for fake breasts. Generally, that's a bad thing, but sometimes it works out. I think Asia Argento's are fake, but I'm very impressed nevertheless, and there's this Japanese horror/porn actres Aoi Sola whose platic surgeon should definitely get some kind of award. . . "

    Andrew Ellis: I just found this thread this afternoon, moments after writing a Mr. Skin joke about a naked skiing scene. My punchline: "The spill of victory, the ecstasy of the teat!"

    So I chuckled at the specifics of your trepidation.

    HEAVY METAL MOVIES is not written in the style of Mr. Skin—at all—although I must say that when I hear someone proclaim "Puns are the lowest form of humor", I respond, "And YOU are the lowest form of HUMAN!"

    Which I don't actually think, of course, but... come on. I dare say a sixth grader would be downright tickled by such witticism.

    One of my favorite films that's not about heavy metal but possesses a spirit of "this is fucking METAL!" is Alex de la Iglesia's The Day of the Beast (El Dia de la Bestia). What a romp.

    I also thought Spun had some treats for metalheads (Rob Halford as a porn store clerk, a job he really had in his early years). The Swedish director of the film was apparently a drummer on early Bathory albums.

    As a metalhead, I usually don't care for most films that have metal on the soundtrack (or pre-existing songs of any genre). I like Iron Maiden & I love Dario Argento, but I don't feel Maiden was conducive to a proper atmosphere for Phenomena.

    I used to wonder what an extreme metal version of High Fidelity would be like. It seems most record store films are punk or indie. Metal & horror just don't get no respect.
