Sexy Movie List

This list started when I noticed a lack of sexy titles on my movie shelf. The experiment that came from this revelation now is allowing me to broaden my horizons and watch movies that don’t fall within my usual genres of choice. While some of the titles on my candidates list may be sexy movies, I am not going to add them to my “sexy list” if I don’t actually enjoy the film. It’s all well and good to have “sexy parts”, but if the rest of the movie is crap, I might as well just rent porn and fast forward to the good parts.

I went to the internet to generate my initial list and am reviewing them as I go along. I will rank the titles as I watch them and, hopefully, end up with a nice list of 20 or so titles that are both hot and should be on my movie shelf.

Legend:

Sexy & Reviewed Sexy but Unreviewed* Internet says Sexy Lukewarm Not Sexy/ Interested
*This means I’ve seen the movie before and remember it being sexy, but I haven’t rewatched it or reviewed it since starting this list.

The Discarded:

 
10th Victim: This movie was originally on the list and was thrown to the discarded list as I STRAINED to find the reason why anyone would have included this movie on a sexy movie list. It would be a stretch, but I assume that it was listed because the main actress, Ursula Andress , uses her substantial attractiveness to push the fib that she is a reporter looking to seduce the male lead, Marcello Mastroianni (who’s quite the eyefull himself), for a news story. However, it’s hard to find even this particularly sexy as the main characters are trying to kill each other in a game of hunt or be hunted for a chance to win a million dollars. The story is weak, the characters plastic and the sex-appeal…limited. Feel free to watch this one with your mom over. On the same couch as you.

Baise Moi! (Cas has suggested that it might be too violent for me)
