Starship Exeter is the real deal!
Not since the original Star Trek have I seen anything that comes this close to the spirit, look and feel of the original. "Starship Exeter: The Tressaurian Intersection" is the real deal, folks! I think it goes without saying that the acting, direction, effects, original score, set design, videography, etc. are WAY beyond what you may have seen before in a "fan" film. But one of the things that really impresses me is something that is often overlooked or poorly done: the sound mix. Try "watching" "SE:TTI" by only listening to the sound... you will really get an appreciation for the professional and meticulous attention to detail in this area. Sound is so important to drawing in the audience to a story, and "SE:TTI" especially shines in this department.
Planet of the Apes (2001)
Tim Burton has done it again!
I just came from seeing director Tim Burton's "reimagined" version of "Planet of the Apes". Burton applied the same visionary treatment that he gave to "Batman" and "Sleepy Hollow" to this movie, and the results are breathtaking, to say the least. A ripping good yarn, highly recommended, and **SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT** I can't wait to visit the planet we see at the end of the movie when the sequel comes around!
Parting Glances (1986)
The quintessential gay NYC movie!
It's been almost 15 years since "Parting Glances" was first released and ten years since I last saw it, but today I just finished watching the newly-released DVD and was charmed all over again by this wonderful movie. Superbly acted, wonderfully scripted and confidently directed, this engaging story of two lovers at a crossroads in their relationship has held up remarkably well over the years. Sadly, this was director Sherwood's one and only film; he died a few years later of AIDS, disillusioned by the difficulties of getting movies made in Hollywood.
The DVD transfer is crystal-clear and includes some interesting production notes that only add to the experience of watching Sherwood's singular masterpiece. Whether you're gay or straight, if you appreciate the art of cinema you owe it to yourself to add this sweet little film to your movie collection.
