I don't know what to say ...


that hasn't already been said. Joss Whedon is a brilliant man. Firefly has the same underlying themes as Buffy and Angel -- trust and loyalty (and the importance of communication!) -- but in a fresh and creative setting.

The show got even better with each episode and the dynamic between the characters evolved into something that really came across as something special.

Also, notwithstanding my hopeless crush on Adam Baldwin, the entire cast is great. I can't imagine anyone more suited for each role than the actors and actresses chosen.

Pure teen anarchy


If you haven't spent your life in a hippie community, it is unavoidable that you become a part of some certain social circle, abandoning the possibilites of the other social group. The relationship between these two social groups isn't necessarily hostile, but often the groups don't share too high respect towards the others. Now, as far as I understand, this kind of a situation is most common in the states where you unavoidably find yourself chatting with the sport junkies, the nerds, the hippies or such. This movie is a fantastic description of that situation, and an exciting example of some sort of alternative social circle. As I watched the movie, I often found myself impressed by the unity of the group, although there aren't so clearly divided social circles in Kitee's Lukio (senior high), or if there is, at least it ain't so hostile as bac there. Anyway, the film itself was most entertaining piece of "art" and featured plenty enjoyable and hilarious moments, but what really made this movie stick into my mind was the forementioned alternative anarchy. Something I admire. Truely.

LOLITA, LOLITA, LOLITA


One reason to watch this film: Lolita Davidovich. If you don't fall in love with her character and become completely mesmerized by her looks . . . you need to check your pulse. Her portrayal as Olivia is right on. Richard Gere and Sharon Stone also put in good performances, but you keep asking yourself as you are watching, "Yo Rich! Are you kiddin'? Choose the redhead!" Completely bashed by critics . . . I think critics can't stand Gere or Stone and Lolita got caught in the crossfire. She's a talented actress and deserved much more ado for her performance.

Stargate SG-1 Season 2, Vol. 3 - movie DVD cover picture
Carter's relationship with her father comes to a head


You have to take the good and the bad with Volume 3 of Season 2 of "Stargate SG-1," which has already convinced me that when I start naming the best shows on television it should be included in the fingers on the first hand that I use. The good has to do with Captain Carter and the bad has to do with Colonel Maybourne:
Episode 10, "Bane" (Written by Robert C. Cooper, Aired by September 25, 1998) is the one where Teal'c (Christopher Judge) gets stung by a giant insect and starts turning into something else. To make things worse, Colonel Maybourne (Tom McBeath) takes Teal'c away from Stargate Command because he wants the infection or whatever it is to run its course, so that means SG-1 to the rescue. Unfortunately "Bane" has a couple of mine, the first being that Jack has not decked Maybourne yet, and the second being any episode of any science fiction series where the characters start mutating. I buy the mutating part, but the getting back to genetic square one at the end of the episode always bothers me. Three Stargates.
Episode 12, "Spirits" (Written by Tor Alexander Valenza, Aired October 23, 1998) finds SG-1 visiting a planet inhabited by Native American Indians, who claim to be protected by spirits who turn out to be advanced alien shapeshifters. To make things more interesting, O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) gets hit by an arrow shot through the Stargate, so Captain Carter (Amanda Tapping) gets to be in charge of the mission. This episode has some interesting ideas but when General Hammond (Don S. Davis) decides to repeat history and advocates taking the trinium they want, that seems a bit much. Fortunately, the spirits are a lot stronger this time around. Four Stargates.
The relationship between Samantha Carter and her father, Jacob (Carmen Argenziano), who is dying of cancer, is at the emotional heart of the two-parts of "The Tok'ra." For the first half of Season 2 there have been several awkward encounters between Carter and her father, with him trying to pull strings to get her into the astronaut core and her refusing to give up her work without being able to explain she to her father that she has already done more than all of NASA's astronauts combined. In Episode 11, "The Tok'ra, Part 1" (Written by Jonathan Glassner, October 2, 1998) SG-1 makes contact with the Tok'ra, the Goa'uld resistance movement that opposes the System Lords, and tries to make an alliance. However, the Tok'ra not only reject the idea, they will not let SG-1 and SG-3 return to Earth, where Sam's father is dying. Pretty good, and it gets better. Five Stargates.
Episode 12, "The Tok'ra, Part 2" (Written by Jonathan Glassner, October 10, 1998) centers on trying to resolve the impass between the SG teams and the Tok'ra, which comes down to Carter finding out that the symbiote can cure cancer. Besides having a rather satisfying emotional payoff to the relationship between Carter and her father, there are some long range implications to the conclusion of this one. This was is more an important episode than a classic "Stargate SG-1" episode, but there is nothing wrong with that. Five Stargates.
Episode 15, "Touchstone" (Written by Sam Egan, Aired October 30, 1998) has Maybourne back causing trouble again for the second time on this DVD. SG-1 is accused of stealing an weather-controlling device that is wrecking havoc on a planet, but it turns out that whoever did it went through the other Stargate on earth. Gee, whoever could be doing that? Even on the dark side of U.S. policy the government has to go behind its own back. Another episode that has long range implications for the series. Five Stargates.
Overall this volume has episodes that are clearly more important in terms of Stargate's mythology than being classics per se, but there are some important things that happen here, especially for Captain Carter.

Cult Film in Limbo


I worked in a video store from 1989 - 90, and saw this movie sit on the shelves, unrented for most of my time there. A friend took it out one night, and from then on, I have raved about it on any occasion to the cult-movie fan. Why this isn't up there on the 'got-to-see' lists of wannabe film makers and students, I don't know. It has solid character development, and yes, fine acting,directing, script and filmaking. Not to mention, the creapiest sex scene this side of 'Crash'. Considering it was filmed in 1988, and the Ursula's hair gets a bit big, I believe it to be a timeless story, with much life left in it still. Buy it, watch it, know PIN: The Plastic Nightmare.

Great one for Hitchcock, Chabrol fans... good DVD transfer


Originally titled, Feux Rouges, this 2004 mystery/suspense piece from Cedric Kahn will surely please fans of Hitchcock or Chabrol. After reading various reviews, my initial expectation was of a movie like George Sluizer's Spoorloos (aka The Vanishing) but this film has less of the latter's chilly horror. For one thing it ends on a more upbeat note. The movie's strengths lie in it's quiet build-up of suspense and the well sculpted interactions between husband and wife. Based on a novel by Georges Simenon (creator of Inspector Maigret), it tells the story of a constantly inebriated man who misplaces his wife while on a car journey to pick up their children from summer camp. He picks up a hitchhiker who may or may not be an escaped convict. He spends much of the rest of the movie trying to find out what happened to his wife. To tell more would be to spoil the fun.

The movie has been given a very good DVD transfer by Wellspring, in what looks like it's original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 (enhanced for widescreen TV). Black levels are nicely rendered which is very important because a large portion of the movie takes place along the roads at night. Colors are well presented and natural. Audio includes both dolby stereo and a 5.1 surround mix with good delivery of the music. I love especially the use of Debussy's Nuages to create both a dreamy as well as a slightly sinister effect when needed. Optional English subtitles are included. All in all a very good DVD and strongly recommended.
