Star Trek: Voyager (1995–2001)
Relax
18 March 2004
The universe of Star Trek has done something brilliant to keep alive. The creators have imposed a story arch for all the series starting with DS9. Don't get me wrong. TNG was what got me into Star Trek in the first place. It had vibrant characters, unique ideas, and was the building block for setting the stage for the other series and the later movies. However, in all it's glory, it lacked something. Continuity. The longest the crew of the Enterprise D would have to deal with an immediate situation, was no more than 2 episodes. No doubt things would reoccur, but it was seldom. Voyager, however, would have numerous back to back episodes dealing with something. And that might even resurface somewhere down the line.

I can't understand what people dislike so much about this show. They explored so much more than any of the others. Not just in the unverse, but with the crew. They all grew. Some more than others, but you can't go 7 years and not show growth in a character. And as with every other Star Trek, it was rough at first, but it gets so much better once the writers and the actors have about a year or two to get it right.

I truely believe that if people give it a chance and don't jump on the bandwagon, they'd like it. It's easy to say you don't like something if you've never really given it a chance.

The Majestic (2001)
Jim Carrey shows us the meaning of growing as an actor.
11 March 2004
In a very unforgiving world, Jim Carrey goes against the grain, and plays a character that is completely opposite of what we've come to expect from him. But just as every other actor who's ever dared to grow as a performer, he was, or course, shot down.

In my own opinion, as an avid movie watcher and an actor myself, I thought Jim Carrey did an excellent job in a movie that otherwise would have been average. No he didn't scream "Smokin!" and he didn't talk out of his butt; why is this a problem? The movie has a concrete story, a very well played supporting cast, and a great lead. While most people believe Jim Carrey did a terrible job, I feel that he brought more to this role than most could.

I highly recommend this movie to people with an open mind and who would like to see a talented(yes he's crazy, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have talent)actor push himself to an entire new realm. Give it a real chance and you won't be dissappointed.
