Directed by Jen Soska & Sylvia Soska

Casted by:
Katharine Isabelle as Mary Mason
Antonio Cupo as Billy Barker

David Lovgren as Dr. Grant
Mary Mason is a medical student on her way to becoming a surgeon. Struggling to pay her bills, she applies for work at a strip club. Before her interview concludes, she is taken to an underground room by the club's owner, Billy Barker, and presented with a man who has been tortured. She is asked to save his life for $5000, which she does, then returns home in panic and disgust.

Several days later she is approached by a woman named Beatress, a stripper at the club Mary interviewed at who has had herself surgically altered to resemble Betty Boop. Beatress offers Mary a large sum of money to perform surgery on a friend of hers, Ruby Realgirl, who wishes to complete her dollification by having her nipples and labia removed. Uncertain of the ethics, but still desperate for money, Mary performs the surgery.

During her residency, Mary is invited to a party with several of the surgeons at her hospital. Once there, she is drugged and raped by her former teacher, Dr Grant. Afterwards she goes to the club once more and hires their enforcers to kidnap the doctor who raped her. She performs a series of body modifications on him, including splitting his tongue and altering his genitals, without the use of anesthetic. She then drops out of medical school and goes into consensual body modification surgery full time.

Time passes, and Mary becomes renowned as a surgeon of great skill, who is willing to perform any surgery desired. The most prominent of her new clients are a pair of twins from Berlin, who want to have their left arms exchanged and horns implanted in their foreheads. It is revealed that Mary is keeping her rapist alive, with his limbs removed and mouth sewed shut. She is discovered by a security guard while tormenting him, and she is forced to kill him to protect herself. A police detective begins to pursue her, suspecting her involvement in the doctor's disappearance.

Beatress vanishes, and then Mary receives a phone call from her. She has been brutally stabbed, and she reveals that Ruby's husband has been angered by the surgery and is coming for her. He then appears out of the darkness and stabs Mary. She manages to kill him, but dies from internal bleeding after sewing her wound.

Well well well, a surprisingly good gross horror movie i have seen lately. This was directed by the Canadian twins sister who are famous of their horror movies. Tristan Risk is a Burlesque teacher and she's kinda hot and cute, if you don't see her after effect of the makeup, as for the main actress Katherine, she was good but not much to shout about.

The story went pretty well, smooth and you can't even guess what will happen next :) Definitely this is the kind of story i'm looking for... If you're a horror freak like me, don't miss it!!!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

 Released Year: 2013
Directed by Jon M. Chu

Casted by:
Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock (Marvin F. Hinton) 
李炳憲 Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow (Thomas Arashikage)
D.J. Cotrona as Flint (Dashiell R. Faireborn)
Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye (Jaye Burnett)
Jonathan Pryce as the President of the United States
 Bruce Willis as General Joseph Colton
Ray Park as Snake Eyes
Elodie Yung as Jinx
Channing Tatum as Duke (Conrad S. Hauser)
The Joes are framed for stealing nuclear warheads from Pakistan by Zartan who is impersonating the President of the United States. The entire team is eliminated in a military strike, with Duke as one of the casualties. Roadblock, Flint and Lady Jaye are the only survivors.

Meanwhile, Storm Shadow and ex-Joe Firefly rescue Cobra Commander  from an underground maximum-security prison in Germany. Storm Shadow is injured during the escape, and retreats to a temple in the Himalayas to recover. Upon learning that he is alive, the Blind Master, leader of the Arashikage Clan, sends Snake Eyes and his apprentice Jinx, Storm Shadow's cousin, to capture Storm Shadow so he can answer for the murder of his uncle, the Hard Master.

Roadblock, Flint, and Lady Jaye return to the United States where they set up a base of operations in a rundown gym. After Zartan announces that Cobra will replace the Joes as America's main protective unit, Lady Jaye deduces that someone is impersonating the President, and Roadblock leads them to General Joseph Colton, who provides them with weapons and helps them infiltrate a fundraising event that the President will be attending. Lady Jaye steals a sample of the President's DNA and confirms that he is Zartan. They escape after a brief confrontation with Firefly and Zandar, the head of the Presidential Detail and a member of Cobra.

Snake Eyes and Jinx locate and capture Storm Shadow after a battle with ninjas and take him back to Japan, where Storm Shadow reveals that Zartan murdered the Hard Master and he joined Cobra to avenge his uncle. Storm Shadow then accompanies Snake Eyes and Jinx as they join the Joes' efforts to stop Cobra.

Zartan invites the world leaders to a summit, where he blackmails them into disabling their nuclear arsenals, and reveals that he has created Project Zeus: seven orbital kinetic bombardment weapons of mass destruction at his command. He destroys central London to prove his superiority, and threatens to destroy other capitals if the countries don't submit to Cobra. However, Storm Shadow betrays Cobra Commander and kills Zartan, revealing Cobra's deception to the world leaders. While Snake Eyes, Jinx, and Flint fight Cobra's soldiers, Cobra Commander activates the remaining six weapons and instructs Firefly to protect the launch device. Firefly is killed in combat by Roadblock, who deactivates and destroys the orbital weapons. Meanwhile, Colton and Lady Jaye rescue the President.

Cobra Commander escapes during the battle and Storm Shadow disappears after avenging his uncle. The real President addresses the nation at a ceremony where Roadblock, Jaye, Flint, Jinx, and Snake Eyes are commemorated as heroes. Colton thanks each of them, and presents Roadblock with the gun of General Patton, an M1911 pistol, to use when he finally finds Cobra Commander. Roadblock proudly raises the weapon and lets out a single shot.

The animals soon discover the reason for the lack of water in the Delta: a dam has been constructed to supply energy for a luxury resort.

 Released Year: 2002
Directed by Steven Shainberg

Casted by:
James Spader as E. Edward Grey
Maggie Gyllenhaal as Lee Holloway
Lee Holloway, the socially awkward and emotionally sensitive youngest daughter of a dysfunctional family, adjusts to normal life after having been hospitalized following an incident of dangerous self-harm. She learns to type, starts to date an acquaintance from high school named Peter, and begins to work as a secretary for an eccentric attorney, E. Edward Grey, who hires her despite her stilted social skills and unprofessional appearance.

Though at first Grey appears highly irritated by Lee's typos and other innocuous mistakes, it soon becomes apparent that he is sexually aroused by her submissive behavior. After he confronts her about her propensity for self-injury and commands that she never hurt herself again, the two embark on a BDSM relationship. Lee experiences a sexual and personal awakening, and she falls deeply in love. Edward, however, displays insecurity concerning his feelings for Lee, and he shows shame and disgust over his sexual habits. After a sexual encounter in his office, he fires Lee.

During this period of exploration with Edward, Lee has also been attempting to have a normal boyfriend in Peter, even engaging in lukewarm sex with him. After Lee is fired from her job, Peter proposes to Lee, who reluctantly agrees to marry him. However, while trying on her wedding gown she leaves and runs to Edward's office where she declares her love for him. Edward, still uncertain about their relationship, tests Lee by commanding her to sit in his chair without moving her hands or feet until he returns. Lee eagerly complies. Days pass, as Peter, family members, and acquaintances individually visit Lee to alternately attempt to dissuade or encourage her. After three days, Edward returns to the office and takes Lee to his apartment where he bathes and nurtures her. The pair marry and happily continue their dominant-submissive relationship.

I have heard about this film a long time ago but didn't really got the chance to watch it. Well, after watching, this multiples awards winner (not the main stream award) is kinda ok, but of course a lot of the storyline is expected and ya Maggie's boobs are nice :) lol
