Hello badmoviephiles.  I bet a lot of you have seen those adult movies or pornos.  I'm shamed to admit I have seen them.  But what I wonder is why are all these movies bad?  I mean they are full of terrible actors, poorly written, poorly directed, POORLY EVERYTHING!!!

I know the reason people buy these films is for the sex.  But come on, a movie should tell a good story and not cover up its shortcomings with frequent sex scenes.

I remember one particularly terrible adult film called the Witches of Breastwick.  I kinda laughed at the one scene where the doctor was putting her patient under erotic hypnosis and had sex with him!

I question what the makers of these films are smoking.  Just what is in the joints they are smoking?  LOL!!!

But badmoviephiles, I gotta ask you.  Have you ever seen an adult film that told a good story without resorting to frequent sex scenes?

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Without the sex scenes, would it BE an X-rated film?

If you're talking single-x, Midnight Cowboy was a multi-Oscar winner. 
I rather like (and own) Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls.
Fritz The Cat wasn't bad.

If you're talking about more hardcore stuff, then I'll admit there's not much good out there at all.  Some of the more "classic" stuff like Behind The Green Door I just laugh at.

Come to think if it (no pun intended), do you mean the stuff they do over here, or the stuff they do over there?

American stuff tends to stink, & Italian stuff always leaves a little something to be desired, but the stuff that comes out of France & Japan ain't so bad.

Japanese porn?  Hmmm, perhaps I will look into that  TeddyR

Many years ago I watched a few pornos, just to see what they were like.  I thought maybe they'd be like a regular movie, you know, with characters and a plot.  No no no.  The plot was like "We all got in a van and headed to a party.  But than we stopped at this house and we all had sex for an hour.  The end."  Now I just stick to sex comedies from the '80s if I'm in the mood for something like that.

No no no, I don't mean eliminate the sex scenes completely.   I mean, it shouldn't go into sex scenes every 2 to 5 mins.  The problem with most adult movies is they are poorly written.  Their stories are shallow in the extreme.  I've seen a few softcore adult films which try to tell a story (The Emanuelle series for instance.)  Often, these movies are foreign so they end up being the victim of poor dialogue translation.

I mean, c'mon.  Give me an adult film that has a deep and intriguing story.

But it's about making a skin flick, not Citizen Kane. I think most directors and actors these days aren't out to further their careers or get noticed. They just want to make porn!  Smile

Huntress: Spirit of the Night
Yeah, the story (if you can call it that) is incredibly choppy, but it works visually, and the director seems to have "some" style.
Also, the music's pretty cool, with lots of guitar work channeling Santana, rather than that cheesy midi muzak.

Japanese bondage porn is good for those who like intricate rope knots. Also, you may wanna check out what Japan dubbed as 'pink' films. some of these are really good and some not so good. I particularly like Flower and Snake. Although I must warn that it's not for everyone....

Actually, I was talking about hentai, but I heard somewhere that it doesn't really come from Japan anymore, it comes from Canada, kinda like American motorcycles.

THE OPENING OF MISTY BEETHOVEN was a 1970s X-rated movie that actually got some praise for trying to be a somewhat "classy" production.  If you're looking for lot's of sex, you'll be disappointed.  There ARE sex scenes, but there's probably more plot and dialogue than pornography.
