Anyone else remember this TNT gem? I loved this growing up, I wish it would come back.

I used to read his newspaper column in the San Francisco Examiner's Pink Section. He would rank movies by the important things, like how many breasts and how many pints of blood.

Every actress got compared to his favorite of all time, rip-away bra queen Sybil Danning. Most fell short, of course. But he gave them credit for trying.

The Examiner printed some of the really good letters they got about that column (mostly from feminists, intellectuals and prudes). They were angry, well-written and sometimes as funny as Joe Bob himself...

Must refer to the end credits of "The Howling 2". She reportedly burst into tears and fled the theatre when the end credits rolled and that clip was played over, and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over... 8)

I used to read his column in the SFC pinky too! LMAO most of the time. It was a unique and often hilarious column. I wondered if some of those letters were real or not. Funny stuff! 8)

Shit, I grew up in Alabama...there was no way his articles would be posted in our fundie ran newspapers. I just remember being exposed to so many sci-fi and horror flicks growing up. He has an audio commentary on the "I Spit on Your Grave" dvd and I know he's done a few others.
