Another Interesting & Nude-a-Plenty Grindhouse Collection

"There are actually three shorts: The Hookers, Prostitute Protective Service & Meeting on 69th Street.
Some people are pretty critical of these grindhouse films - not sure why. It seems the criteria should be pretty straightforward:
Are the women attractive?
Is there enough nudity? (well, female only)
Is there girl on girl action?
Film resolution quality accetable to good?
And a bonus, does the plot make sense?
For these three, you have to say yes on all checkpoints for all three shorts (each about @1 hour long). The Hookers one is really comprised of three "chapters" and three different un-related stories of prostitutes. It should be noted that Image Entertainment which distributes the Something Weird compilation DVD's will on occasion edit them ... I can't imagine they edit for time, only on content so one of the Hookers short stories has a couple jarring edits so I'm not sure if we've lost a little or a lot - did not see the original VHS (pre Image Entertainment editing). But still pretty nice but you have to wonder.
PPS is big scoped storyline of prostitutes defending their Times Square turf against the mob. Big cast, cool Times Square b-roll of that era, lots of action and lots of nudity - nice.
The third featurettes not listed is 'Meeting on 69th Street" - also about an hour long - about prostitutes who open up their own house of ill repute (without pimps) on ... you can guess the street. Solid & plenty of nudity.
Not the best compilation but all pretty solid. All b&w. There might be trims in the first story but the women except for the first girl are all smokin' (and not the cigarette kind) so good enough.
Plus the usual fun assortment of trailers and mini featurettes (about 10 in all)."
