(NSFW) Femme Fatale Month Rages On with Paulina Porizkova in Thursday

Posted in Femme Fatale, Movies with tags , , , , , , on January 30, 2009 by mobflix

One of the best things about the 1980’s was a Supermodel named Paulina Porizkova.  Paulina has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated on numerous occasions throughout the 1980’s.  Paulina also starred in the video for the song, Drive, by The Cars.

Paulina eventually married the lead singer of The Cars, Ric Ocasek.  They are still married.

In 1998, Paulina was in a movie called Thursday.  This movie also featured Aaron Eckhart, Thomas Jane, and even Mickey Rourke.  Thomas Jane plays Casie Wells, a former drug dealer turned architect who has quite an adventure on a specific Thursday.  His former partner, played by  Aaron Eckhart.  Echhart shows up with a suitcase full of Heroin and $2mill in cash.

After Eckhart leaves, and a host of peculiar hit-people pay Casie a visit.  The first is a Jamaican rasta pizza delivery guy, then Paulina stops by.  It just so happens that Paulina was a former member of Aaron’s gang and she has come looking for the Heroin, which Thomas flushed down the sink, and the $2mill.

Paulina has a special way of executing her victims.  She prefers to have sex with them first.  Thomas does his best to resist.

The above scene shows Paulina’s acting chops as well as her sexiness.  She’s mean, evil, smart, sexy, and extremely dangerous.

Paulina Porizkova is one of our favorites during Femme Fatale Month on Mobflix.com

Femme Fatale Month Continues – Annette Bening as Virginia Hill in Bugsy

Posted in Femme Fatale, Movies with tags , , on January 29, 2009 by mobflix

Annette Bening plays Virgina Hill in Bugsy.  Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel was responsible for building the Flamingo Hotel in the middle of the desert which led to the mecca that Las Vegas is today.  He was a visionary ahead of his time, even if he was a ruthless gangster.  Bugsy obtained financing to build the Flamingo Hotel from Organized Crime Investors led by Meyer Lansky.  When the cost overruns went into the millions and it was discovered Virginia Hill had $2 million in a Swiss Bank Account, it was decided that Bugsy needed to be removed.

Annette Bening does a phenomenal job as Virginia Hill, Bugsy’s Moll (Mob Girlfirend).  In the scene above, you can’t quite tell if she is stringing him along, and she never really answers him when confronted about the $2 million in the Swiss bank account.

Annette Bening as Virginia Hill is one of our Femme Fatales at mobflix.com.

Posted in Femme Fatale, Movies with tags , on January 21, 2009 by mobflix

Gina Gershon plays an ex-con hired as a maintenance person for an apartment building.  Turns out her next door neighbor is Jennifer Tilly who lives with her Mafia boyfriend, Joe Pantoliano.

Tilly’s Mob boyfriend has $2 Mill stashed on behalf of his Mob boss.

Gershon & Tilly steam up the screen in a heated love affair and scheme to swindle the $2 Mill and let Tilly’s Mob boyfriend take the fall.

At Mobflix, we highly recommend this film.  Gina and Jennifer are hot, the plot is great and as always, Joe Pantoliano gives a fantastic performance.

Natalie Portman as Matilda in The Professional

Posted in Femme Fatale, Movies with tags , , on January 18, 2009 by mobflix

Femme Fatale Month continues with Natalie Portman as Matilda in The Professional.

Before she was Mrs. Darth Vader, Natalie Portman showed us her acting chops as Matilda.  A Tween girl whose family was killed by corrupt Federal Drug Agents led by Gary Oldman (Harry Potter’s Sirius Black).

Matilda seeks refuge in the apartment of a neighbor after seeing her dead family in her apartment after coming back from running an errand.  The Drug Agents were looking for drug money her Dad stashed in her apartment.  No one was spared in the massacre including her toddler brother.

Turns out, Matilda’s neighbor down the hall is Leon (Jean Reno),  A foreign professional hitman who is the best in his field.  He is swift, ruthless, silent, and almost invisible.  Leon, against his better instincts, takes Matilda under his wing, and teaches her the skill of a hitman in order for Matilda to take revenge for her family.

In the scene above, Leon teaches Matilda sniper basics.  Pay attention to what she says after she fires the blank shot with paint in it at a target jogging in Central Park.

This movie has an incredible shootout scene as well, but Natalie Portman’s performance as Matilda is why she is a Mobflix Femme Fatale.

The Story of Bonnie & Clyde Poem – Actually written by Bonnie Parker

Posted in Femme Fatale, Movies on January 8, 2009 by mobflix

Bonnie Parker was poet.  Below is an actual Poem authored by Bonnie and actually published in the newspapers at the time shortly before her death.

The Story of Bonnie and Clyde

You’ve read the story of Jesse James
Of how he lived and died
If you’re still in need for something to read
Here’s the story of Bonnie and Clyde.

Now Bonnie and Clyde are the Barrow gang,
I’m sure you all have read
how they rob and steal
And those who squeal are usually found dying or dead.

There’s lots of untruths to those write-ups
They’re not so ruthless as that
Their nature is raw, they hate all law
Stool pigeons, spotters, and rats.

They call them cold-blooded killers
They say they are heartless and mean
But I say this with pride, I once knew Clyde
When he was honest and upright and clean.

But the laws fooled around and taking him down
and locking him up in a cell
‘Till he said to me, “I’ll never be free
So I’ll meet a few of them in hell.”

The road was so dimly lighted
There were no highway signs to guide
But they made up their minds if all roads were blind
They wouldn’t give up ’till they died.

The road gets dimmer and dimmer
Sometimes you can hardly see
But it’s fight man to man, and do all you can
For they know they can never be free.

From heartbreak some people have suffered
From weariness some people have died
But all in all, our troubles are small
‘Till we get like Bonnie and Clyde.

If a policeman is killed in Dallas
And they have no clue or guide
If they can’t find a friend, just wipe the slate clean
And hang it on Bonnie and Clyde.

There’s two crimes committed in America
Not accredited to the Barrow Mob
They had no hand in the kidnap demand
Nor the Kansas City Depot job.

A newsboy once said to his buddy
“I wish old Clyde would get jumped
In these hard times we’s get a few dimes
If five or six cops would get bumped.”

“The police haven’t got the report yet
But Clyde called me up today
He said, “Don’t start any fights, we aren’t
working nights, we’re joining the NRA.”

From Irving to West Dallas viaduct
Is known as the Great Divide
Where the women are kin and men are men
And they won’t stool on Bonnie and Clyde.

If they try to act like citizens
And rent a nice little flat
About the third night they’re invited to fight
By a sub-gun’s rat-tat-tat.

They don’t think they’re tough or desperate
They know the law always wins
They’ve been shot at before, but they do not ignore
That death is the wages of sin.

Someday they’ll go down together
And they’ll bury them side by side
To few it’ll be grief, to the law a relief
But it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde.
