SGU Stargate Universe (2009)
Boring and Pretentious
I've tried to watch this show at least a dozen times & cannot keep my mind on it. It's like a Battlestar Galactica soap opera. But that's an insult to Battlestar Galaciica, which was actually pretty good. One word sums this up - BORING. This is one of the most tedious shows I've ever tried to watch, with a rambling and very confusing plot and characters that are supposed to be complicated but are better suited to those out of a daytime soap.
This show is nothing like SG-1, it doesn't even come close to being in the same league. It's an insult to the franchise.
Medicine Man (1992)
Everything - suspense, romance, humor, a film for adults and kids with adults, which emphasizes very real current issues.
One of the best films I have ever seen. The chemistry between Sean Connery and Lorraine Bracco was unbelievable, especially considering their differing temperaments, moral attitudes and the fact that this wasn't a 007 flick - the sexuality was compellingly subtle and much more subdued sophisticated, even considering the primitive setting. This is family friendly, in fact I would strongly recommend this to very effectively get some of today's most important ethical questions and serious potential worldwide implications and consequences across to the kids, but along with adult supervision and interaction. I found this suspenseful, romantic, informative, funny, sad and very disturbing. With all that, it still presented the very real and urgent current issues that left me strongly drawn to pack my bags and act on them myself. 10 out of 10.
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
A thought from a "Blair" resident
Having grown up on that mountain less than a mile from Burkittsville, MD, The only impact this movie - and I use the term loosely - had on me was how I really should go invest in a video camera. Flick very poorly and cheaply done without benefit of any actual research on the history and folklore of the area, Strategy, excellent. A lot of bucks made for spending just enough in productions to peak curiosity. Kudos, wish I'da thought of it. And I may yet do a similar one, made just as cheaply, but based on the stories and lore about restless spirits left over from the atrocities that really happened, and happened there. Not in Seneca Creek or Patapsco State Parks, safely just outside of Baltimore where this was filmed. Blair witch, bull. That was just the rantings of one scared individual in an attempt to avoid being executed for assisting in the murder of kids 65 years ago, and the really sick one behind it was one of the kids. If you're really interested in actual events or the history beyond the twisted fairy tales, look it up for yourself. But if you're not from around there, the spirits don't know you and you shouldn't be there, hanging out at night, treading on grounds that have become sacred to them, that contain their remains. Grounds that you have no respect for. Stay in town where you belong. The truth runs much farther back and is not just a lot stranger than fiction - it's much more terrifying.
