Fucking Google


Google won't ban blogs with adult content after all! It took a full three days to reverse everything they threatened you with. However, the service still sucks and the future of their neutrality could be in jeopardy.
It's confusing who is actually pro-net neutrality on the interwebs. Google used to make it clear that they were on the side of being neutrally fair, but lately hasn't been much of an activist. In fact, many have pointed out that Google has lately been quieter on the issue than ever before, even though the issue is bigger than ever before.
An attempt to reach across the aisles in recent years may be causing this. They've donated to Republicans like Republican Sen. James Inhofe and conservative organizations like the Federalist Society. They've also employed conservative lobbyists such as their VP of Public Policy & Government Affairs, who works directly with Google's Chief Legal Officer.
It's concerning because these are the conservatives that largely wish to undo the vote the FCC just took to implement new net neutrality rules.

#Fake Lesbians: 3rd Edition

Welcome to the 3rd (annual?) fake lesbies, hosted by Mr. Xploit. Carson Daily couldn't be here because I tried to call his agent and the line has been disconnected by NBC.
First up, those feisty Frenchmen from "Blue is the Warmest Colour," Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux.
With all the contact they made in the film, could they be real lesbians?
It would seem so until...
Dammit! Oh wait, that's just their director, Barack Hussein Obama.
Juliette Binoche is in a new movie where she falls for Kristen Stewart. Surprise, it's French too! What a wonderful land. Free health care and lesbians as far as the voyeuristic eye can see! Perhaps Mr. Xploit was French in a previous blog.
On the other side of the world, let's see what Uncle Lloyd's got cooked up in Tromaville.
It's his latest opus, "Return to Nuke 'Em High." The new film is split into two freaky volumes.
Sundance this past year introduced us to "The Summer of Sangaile," about a young girl interested in flying who meets another girl with a similar interest. The rest will be history once it's on Netflix.
Hashtag I've run out of pictures.

Cycle (2014) Short Film Review


Greetings, filthy pond-scum! Roger Ebert once said the most important thing that a critic can do is not to write a flowery essay, but instead to have a unique voice. And of course, Mr. Xploit never blindly writes a good or bad review! I won't jerk anyone else off.
I invoked Ebert because the one review I found of this film was the most laughably biased essay you can imagine. Their head was so far up the filmmaker's ass, they could easily be mistaken for a rectal polyp. "It is a good film that succeeds due to focusing on the human condition," it read.
It's a twist-oriented short about a violent cycle of events involving a mysterious dealer and a domestic disturbance. However, what's a real mystery about the film is that the "cycle" isn't fully explained. I'm guessing the unfinished plot is meant to be continued in some manner because there's a villain that's clearly motivated, but we aren't told what the motivation is. If there was more backstory, it would've gone toward making the audience care about the characters. I kept waiting for a backstory about a sleazy murder, a sleazy stripper, or perhaps a sleazy blogger that's self-loathing, self-referential and obsessed with self-hyphenating.
But if the brisk film is just a tonal prelude to something bigger, it does a good job of building tension over a mere two and a half minutes, sans credits. It has brief flashback shots, helping to move things along and building the tension. Because of its running time, saying much more would be a spoiler. All in all, it wasn't boring and it's slickly shot too. I understand the filmmaker has some full features in the works and a new voice is always enticing.

Indiegogo: Katherine Isabelle's Orgy


In case you haven't heard the news, Katherine Isabelle has promised to finally go nude along with Jewel Staite in a movie called "How to Plan an Orgy in A Small Town." There is no word to describe the greatness of this revelation so I will invent one. Inbefuckingcredible!
I learned of the movie, being funded on Indiegogo, when Katherine herself began teasing us about her saucy bod on Twitter. She clearly wants the world to know that she'll be on full display, following her very hot but non-nude turn in the 2010 horror classic American Mary. It's hard to believe the moment many of us horror hounds have been waiting for is finally fappening. Sorry. Too soon?
The said post mentions other actresses, including Lauren Holly and Lauren Lee Smith. Let's pray there's an actual orgy at some point in the movie.
Click on the image of the poster at the top to go to the Indiegogo and hear what Katherine has to say.

October What What What?

No, I couldn't be... Halloween again?! It seems like just yesterday I was indulging in Halloween's lowest form of entertainment, the cheerleader slasher. Oh wait, that was yesterday.
I hope you have a ball trick-or-treating, watching horror movies, partying or jerking off. Or all of the above! Have a safe weekend and check out All Cheerleaders Die on Netflix!

Excision (2012) Review


Watch out for a new voice in horror. Excision is Richard Bates Jr.'s writer/directorial debut and it ain't just tits and gore! Yet it still manages to be good and manages pack in every discount cult movie legend under the sun. Watch out for cameos from Malcolm McDowell, Traci Lords, Ray Wise, John Waters and... Marlee Matlin? Sure, join the party, just don't expect to be paid scale. Lettuce in a bowl? You shouldn't have.
The film draws a believable portrait of a bright, but mentally disturbed teen by focusing on the troubled home life. Pauline is a friendless high school student whose little sister is dying from CF, for which there's no cure. Her parents' attentiveness to her little sister contributes to Pauline's emotional neglect and her stressful relationship with both parents.
Pauline's non-conformist attitude frustrates her mother and makes for the film's most uncomfortable scenes. Her and mom have several icy, defensive conversations with one another, and these scenes are made so real that they come off as the most disturbing and even painful part of the film, despite there being many bloody fantasies of Pauline's that we get to see played out.
The standout writing and acting deserve praise. The character of Pauline's mom is a great turn for Traci Lords. Insert Traci Lords joke anywhere. Her parents' failures to communicate become more of a problem as the story heads toward its shocking climax. Really, it is!
I give it two thumps up Traci Lords.
