Furs on Film – G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

Confession time. Well, confession outside of this entire website. That would be my misspent youth raised by toy commercials. One, in particular, is relevant to this update. It’s funny; there were only “two” seasons of G.I. Joe, but 96 episodes total. I spent most of them with a terrible secret: my favorite character was The… Read More Furs on Film – G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

Furs on Film – Danger: Diabolik (1968)

There were very few instances of my ’90s viewing habits and my interest in fur fashion crossing over, but the Danger: Diabolik episode of MST3K (1013, the SciFi series finale) certainly hit like a truck. So, let’s take a quick look at why I missed about 2 minutes of the final riffs of the season.… Read More Furs on Film – Danger: Diabolik (1968)

Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Decided to cover an underground gem from the mid-90s that most people will be surprised to learn has a lot of fur fashion. Also decided to see how many readers could pick up on sarcasm. Yes, it’s Casino, the film that associated Sharon Stone with “chinchilla” in certain circles. It’s also the ‘90s, so it… Read More Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Furs on Film – The Stud (1978)

Today we learn that there are sequels that are better than the original. Unfortunately, it’s because we’re talking about the original. The Stud was the first of what might have been a trilogy, but, despite the success of the sequel (The Bitch), a third film was never made. Thus Forever Lulu remains the top 1980s… Read More Furs on Film – The Stud (1978)

Furs on Film – The Couch Trip (1988)

The late 80s: fur is on the way out, and mediocre comedy is on the way in. Thus we find ourselves at one of Dan Aykroyd’s less beloved comedies: The Couch Trip. We’re in luck, though, because this update has nothing at all to do with Aykroyd. The Couch Trip – The Film The overarching… Read More Furs on Film – The Couch Trip (1988)

Furs on Film – Anna Karenina (2012)

Do you know what we need more of in 2022? Tragedy. Wait, no, I mean Keira Knightley in a bunch of fur. So let’s break out the most recent adaption of the Tolstoy classic, Anna Karenina, and check out Keira and her Oscar-winning Imperial Russian costume design.  Anna Karenina – The Film Holy crap, look… Read More Furs on Film – Anna Karenina (2012)

Furs on Film – Daughters of Darkness (1971)

Artsy ‘70s lesbian vampire flick plus furs? I’ll take one, please. Daughters of Darkness is probably a little too artsy and deconstructive, but I also watch Marvel movies for fun, so I’m probably not allowed to have an opinion on matters cinematic. I think the filmmakers wanted the “vampire’s” nature to be subjective. There are… Read More Furs on Film – Daughters of Darkness (1971)

Furs on Film – Angel (1937)

Time to go back to the 1930s, still co-champ of best fur-film-decade with the 1980s. Sadly overlooked by generations who cannot conceive of a time when they couldn’t turn their noses up at black-and-white film because that is all there was. Angel not only is from the 30s but stars one of the top fur… Read More Furs on Film – Angel (1937)

Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

There’s not a lot that is remarkable about Rent-a-Cop. At best, it’s an ‘80s cop show with naughty words and flirtations with more explicit violence. I don’t think it deserved the attention from the Razzies, but the only particularly remarkable thing about it is how well Liza kept warm throughout the winter exterior shoots. And,… Read More Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)
