Crop And Save
Vengeance Unlimited (1998)
This is a great show with terrific acting, awesome scripts and a really good premise.
This show rocks my world. Michael Madsen is so awesome as the avenging angel/devil. He really cares about people and wants to punish those that wreak suffering on others. It's obvious that the event that triggered his avenging ways was some type of loss in his life. Most likely his wife was abducted and killed for some reason. The fact that he couldn't save her drives him to save others in similar situations. His relationship with K.C. is very well played. She was originally afraid of him but got to know him as a great guy. Now I think she feels that their relationship is sort of brother-sister in nature. I wish Chapel could have a relationship with a woman but with his lifestyle it would be difficult to say the least. He is so charming and sure of himself, but he's not cocky or arrogant. He tells it like it is and he isn't afraid to get hurt or hurt others to see that justice is done. I really respect his way of life. He seems to live for his job, not really having any vices to distort his perception. He keeps a clear head and because of it is always able to get himself out of trouble. He does things his own way, not involving law enforcement because sometimes law enforcers are as corrupt as the people they fight. I like the show also because it has a nice sense of humor. When Chapel accidentally spills the contents of K.C.'s purse and sees her underwear, or when he gives one of his patented quick retorts to the baddie, it makes me laugh. The humor aspect is a nice and refreshing aspect of a show that could have been extremely dark otherwise. It's a tremendous show that I hope survives the season. Michael Madsen is a great actor. Him and his character are blessings bestowed on us by ABC. I just hope they don't take the show away before it has a chance to become a fully developed crime/drama/mystery.
Zero Effect (1998)
A great movie everyone will love, it has terrific acting, characters and dialogue.
This movie is the best I've ever seen. It revolves around a private investigator who has no social skills in his personal life but when he's on a case he is a smooth operator. He uses his intuition to the fullest and is simply the greatest observer of human nature in the world. The scenes of him deducing from clues and the way he then explains how he figured the solution out are remarkable. The script was superb, as was the acting. No viewer could figure out the mystery until the end, the case was multi-dimensional as were the characters. It was quite like 'The Usual Suspects' in this way. I can't say enough positive things about it. The character of Darryl Zero (played by Bill Pullman)was extreme, but at the same time he seemed like a real life person. I liked the way they explained how he came to have such a schizophrenic life. Ben Stiller's performance was multi-layered. He wasn't just the comedic sidekick. I really could feel how he was struggling having to work for such a tyrannical man, but a man whom he can't quit on because he loves and respects him. A good, unpredictable ending tops off the movie. Any other script would have written a sappy ending, but I liked how the characters stayed true to themselves throughout.
