Crossing the Bridge (1992)
My favorite movie :)
I first saw this movie on TV late one night. I was about to turn off the TV and go to bed at a decent hour when I heard the opening lines, "this is the tale of the War Wagon"...It grabbed my attention and as the movie progressed, I sat in rapture. This is an excellent movie with good acting, good actors and good directing. The soundtrack is full of hits that fit right into the plot and strengthen the setting, like any good soundtrack does. This is one of those "life" movies that ranks right up there with "Breakfast Club" and "The Diner"...check it out if you ever see it in the video rental store...
A worthy sequel
Having been guided through Fallout 1 by a pair of die-hard Fallout/Videogame Fans and having bought Fallout 2, I have to say that Fallout 2 is much better. However, I must admit that I was a bit let down that the plot line of 2 leans so heavily on 1's greatness. Quite frankly, the game seemed like an update to 1.
However, the game-play in 2 is much more in-depth, there are more varieties of weapons, and many, many more funny diversions to find in the wilderness. If you are a Monty Python-Quest for The Holy Grail fan and a Star Trek Fan like me, you will love these diversions.
One thing about Fallout 1 that I didn't like is that most of the action tends to center around the Hub. In Fallout 2, action can be found in PLENTY of different cities. The player has more choice about his/her destiny and the destiny of the futuristic world.
The retro-sci-fi is as good in Fallout 2, with plenty of Gangsters, Art Deco done future, and even a few "English Ka-nigits". However, no game will EVER EVER beat Fallout 1's intro scene as far as I am concerned.
An excellent series
Definitely one of the best series ever put out on TV. The historical intrigue was always interesting. Young Jones meeting Lawrence of Arabia, Picasso, and (my favorite) a very notable young Vietnamese revolutionary always kept your interest up. Plot lines, although sometimes a little trite, were usually well-done and faithful to history. Definitely a good successor to the movies with just enough action to boot.
Too bad it's not still on TV.
