Rating - 7/10.
Plot - Corky, a tough female ex con and her lover Violet concoct a scheme to steal millions of stashed mob money and pin the blame on Violet's crooked boyfriend Caeser.
Quick Review - The plot is fairly solid, and its a gorgeous looking film, with some solid acting performances. I went through the whole film thinking that the supporting actress with the weird voice was Renée Zellweger, but it turns out it wasn't. Anywho, a decent film that passed the time.

I am curious Steadman, why you think CH is dated. I really didn't find it dated much at all. I find myself strangely wanting to own this movie.
I really hope someone gets to see Grindhouse this weekend and can review it. At least Eli Roth is only doing the "commercials".
On another note, Hostel 2 comes out in June and wouldn't you know it, the director of CH is making a cameo. First Miike and now Deodato. I will have to see it just for his cameo.

The Cheap Detective (1978)
Synopsis - A spoof of Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, Chinatown, The Big Sleep, etc.
Review - When someone who loves a genre spoofs it, you usually have a fun movie, and so was the case here. What a great cast, alot of my favorite actresses were here, some very funny women, Madeline Kahn, Eileen Brennan, Stockard Channing, and Ann-Margret. Peter Falk headlines this great cast, and does the superb job you'd expect. My only concern is how accesible a movie this is to someone who doesn't know the movies being spoofed but for a noir lover it was a fun one.

The Wachowski brothers made it? Ewww... well, I'll give it a try anyway.
P.S. You should check out Under a Killing Moon. It was pretty good, you'll need DOSBox though.
I'm probably wrong about that, too.

Robin Hood: Men In Tights (1993)
A spoof of the classic Robin Hood tale.
This movie was my favorite as a kid, i used to watch it over and over and never get tired of it. Seeing it again really gave me nostalgia. Its still funny to this day, but in the really stupid way. Its just the old Robin Hood tale except adding lots of dumb jokes and modern references, but it still keeps me laughing and smiling the whole way. I also didnt notice that the black guy that travels with Robin Hood was Dave Chappelle, this is from 1993, and he looks and sounds exactly the same way he did 14 years ago. I found that kind of interesting, great movie though, to me, its a classic.

Anyway, shouldn't all the lesbian getting-it-awhn stuff be the most advertisable asset? One of them's Gina Gershon for god's sake...
