See Lucy in her glamour days as a young starlet, in this cheesy but fun WWII-era musical comedy., 23 March 2001
7/10

"Seven Days' Leave" is a WWII-era musical comedy about a young Army soldier [Mature] who is due a large inheritance. The problem is, he must marry a certain girl [Ball] whom he does not love, in order to collect.

If one is a Lucy fan, this movie is a great watch. Lucy is actually drop-dead gorgeous in this flick, more so than she had ever been in her entire career, in my opinion.

Also, Harold 'The Great Gildersleeve' Peary adds to the fun, along with Marcy McGuire as the younger sister to Lucy's character.

Unfortunately, this film as a whole is quite mediocre. And, Victor Mature sings twice. FFWD required.

All in all, one watch of this movie is definitely worth it. The video is even worth owning if you like Lucy.

SaGa Frontier 2 (1999) (VG)
Play your way on a vast journey through the living timeline and history of a powerful ancient empire., 23 March 2001
8/10

SaGa Frontier 2 is a deep, intelligent RPG. Though similar in method of play to SaGa Frontier, is a much more sophisticated game.

The plot of this game [made for Sony Playstation] centers around Emperor Gustav XII and his sometimes tyranical family and political dynasty...for 5 generations.

The Gustav timeline also crosses paths with the secondary storyline of Will and his multi-generational quest for vengeance against the extremely powerful soul-stealing Egg.

One has the option of starting with either the Gustav or Will storyline, which offers differing historical events depending upon which is started first.

An in-game journal helps the player keep track of the timeline.

As for the battle system, SaGa Frontier 2 is pretty much the same as it's predecessor; but with many more options and creative magic, weapon, and ability choices per character. Weapon and magic skills are called 'arts' in SF2.

Also, there are 3 battle modes: single, team, or tactical. The single mode allows one selected character to fight the villian - great for developing new physical and weapon arts.

Team mode is the standard RPG battle mode. Up to 4 characters fight a single enemy, sometimes combining their powers at random for a deadly, massive attack. Yes...the combos are back.

Tactical mode is a planned, grid-like, military type battle mode - used in the war or campaign parts of the game.

To sum up this scant review of SaGa Frontier 2 - if you liked SaGa Frontier....you'll really enjoy this one.
