adventurous second installment
BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES picks up where the first left off and revolves around a mystery surrounding the disapperance of taylor. At the same time astronaughts from earth crash land in the future and one survives to take up the quest for taylor. While the search goes on for taylor the apes in ape city are planning a military foray into the forbidden zone; a foray that will bring them face to face and into conflict with mentally superior humans who live in a dead city. BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES promises alot and delivers and is adventure on a grand scale. The only thing holding it back are awkward subplots where the humans worship a atom bomb and sing to it. The film handles the lack of charlton hestons involvement well and structured the story around that impedement. Out of ten stars this film gets eight.
an insult to america's intelligence
TERMINATOR 3 is not a bad film on it's own. The film sufferes from plot problems and continuity problems. TERMINATOR 3 is worth one view but it's definetly not a multiple viewing movie. TERMINATOR 1 and 2 are hard acts to follow in this film and this film does not recapture the grandure of either of those films. What i liked was the villian was more in step with the original terminator film. A popcorn and coke film T3 boasts hollywood stunts and eyegrabbing special effects. However many of the attributes that make this film worthwhile hurt it criticaally. The film has plot holes and continuity problems as big as nebraska. The plot holes are of a scope and breadth I would expect in a z grade action picture but not in a first rate action film; these plot holes I might add never show up in the first two films. TERMINATOR 3 is worth a view but buyer beware. If you expect a fun time with a popcorn and coke....by all means go. If you are a discriminating fan who looks deeper you may be dissappointed.
Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye (2002)
a good crime drama
The program focuses on a deaf cop who solves crimes in a FBI task force. The show is a crime drama but the show also deals with the disability the main character has and how she deals with it each day. This appraoch is unusual in broadcast tv and makes for the unusual appeal of this program. SUE THOMAS is a good show; it's a good crime drama and drama period.
The sliver shamrock commercials in this film make viewing annoying. HALLOWEEN III fails because it has nothing to do with the rest of the series. There was a attempt to do something original and different yet that proved to be something that didn't kept the audiences attention as well as Michael Myers did. HALLOWEEN III is just plain boring. Avoid this film like the plague.
Fear Factor (2001)
EATING HORSE RECTUM AS ENTERTAINMENT
FEAR FACTOR is a show of dangerous dares and disgusting edibles which currently airs on NBC. I guess the one that got me was the horse rectum as a edible. This show will do anything and that includes having participants eat horse rectum. I suppose the prise money is worth it but I don't know if anyone could pay me enough to eat horse ass on tv.
The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954)
one of the best endings
The conclusion to this film, is perhaps one of the best as far as movies go. The film tells the tale of navy pilots having to bomb a series of bridges in korea. The film overall is good and in keeping with most period war films, yet the end was different from those of that era. I like the approach to it and the delivery. I won't divulge too much here but I recommend this film.
Forbidden Planet (1956)
one of the few worthwhile 1950's sci fi films
FORBIDDEN PLANET is one of the few worthwhile 1950's sci-fi films. In a era of bad smog monster films this one burst on the scene and paved the way for STAR TREK and STAR WARS. Unpretentious and totally believable this is worth a view and a good family film.
second season remote viewer episode
There was a second season remote viewer episode that comes to mind that was exceptionally well made. The episode revolved around a woman with esp who used it to contact a alien life force. In series with starships it gets expensive to reach out and explore new life forms but with PSI FACTOR they got creative and didn't need a big fancy space ship to do it with (or the sets that come with it). IN the series of episodes about this character there was total suspension of disbelief.
a great formula film
RENEGADES is a great formula film from Jack Sholder. The films format is action adventure with a heavy native american theme. The film tells the tale of police corruption, mafia dirty dealings and the theft of a sacred lance from a native american tribe. The film has predictable elements yet is worthwhile. Of note is the directing style of sholder which is kinetic enough to keep the audience interested. RENEGADES is formula but succeds at being good formula; good formula never fails. I recommend this film as a popcorn and coke film.
Left Behind (2000)
a plot that needs reworking...flawed theology???
According to this film there is a rapture and a second chance at salvation in christ folowing it. In the bible there is no second chance at redemption. The parable of the bridegroom points out that there is no second chance. Is the film flawed? I would say so. The plot has christ doing a pretzel in the sky while a second chance is bestowed on mankind. Why would christ ressurect the dead and rapture the christians only to have to do it again at the end foretold in this films explanation of events? I rest my case.
