3.0 out of 5 stars In the Cut - A lackluster thriller!, March 28, 2004
Simply put, if any man tells you that they either, went to the theater, purchased or rented this film because they thought that it would be a great thriller of a murder/mystery type movie is telling a tale of their own. I, like most others, simply wanted to watch this movie as for the first time ever; Meg Ryan who is one of Americas Hollywood sweethearts of so many great films was finally going to do a nude scene, plain and simple. That being said, yes there are some fairly "interesting" scenes with Meg in this film but as a whole, the story is horribly predictable and the nude scenes are exhibitionist at best and really do nothing to further the film other than show that her character is an isolated, lonely woman that becomes attracted to a cop.
Performance wise, Meg Ryan in this film is so totally different than any other character she's ever played before, which in part may be why she wanted to do the part. Overall, the part and the film do more to detract from her body of work than to actually enhance it, no pun intended! Mark Ruffalo's performance is a very good one when considering any previous minor roles he might've been noticed in on other films. Jennifer Jason Leigh's minor part in the film doesn't really give her an opportunity to shine as she's quite capable of.
"In the Cut" is the first film that I've watched that Jane Campion has directed and unfortunately this film doesn't leave an overwhelmingly satisfying impression of her work for me. Whether it's the script or the directing, this film is almost entirely flat, one dimensional and is clearly relying on the fact that it's the first time Meg Ryan does nudity to make any money whatsoever!
The Premise:
Meg Ryan plays Frannie Averey, a lonely high school teacher living in New York City who is also trying to write a book on slang words. Very early in the film she's in a bar with one of her students who is teaching her some of those slang words and when she excuses herself to go to the restroom, she's afforded the opportunity to spy on a couple doing what couples do and she notices a tattoo on the mans arm. Later that week, Detective Giovanni Malloy shows up at her door wanting to know if she'd noticed anything strange as there is a serial killer loose and that killer left one of his victim's body parts in her garden, she notices that he has the very same tattoo and believes he was the one in the bar...
What follows from there is a fairly tedious film that relies much too much on sex scenes to carry the story and not on good screenwriting and scripting! I would only recommend this film to fans of Meg Ryan's who just "have" to see it for what it is, but to those interested in seeing a well made thriller, looking elsewhere may be the best option! {ssintrepid}

4.0 out of 5 stars End of Days - A fairly decent film!, March 28, 2004
This review is from: End of Days (DVD)
Until recently I was unaware that this particular film was billed as Arnold Schwarzenegger's comeback film in 1999 after having heart surgery the year prior. As a comeback film I would have to say that this particular film wasn't a completely triumphant one for everybody's favorite super action film star. I remember walking out of the theater when this one was released thinking that Arnold really should've given this one further thought before taking the role and until only quite recently made the decision to purchase the DVD. As I find myself doing often, I felt that this film deserved a second look and in part, I'm glad I did. I wouldn't go so far as many others have in saying that this is a horrible, highly predictable film, but I would say that, upon watching it a second time, the film does have some good merits in showing Arnold's acting skills despite the poorly scripted plot. Ultimately, this is one of those fair to midland type films that most could take or leave although it does have some very interesting plot aspects insomuch as to the whole "End of Days" aspect and the play upon Catholicism and the anti-Christ.
Performance wise, Arnold Schwarzenegger is at his best in films of this type where his strengths are displayed at their best to include the actions scenes and his myriad of one liners that continue to bring about a chuckle. The one true oddity of the film for him is that he takes a beating in this film like no other but hey, what can one expect when Hollywood's crowned king of action films is up against the devil himself. Gabrielle Byrne gives an impressive performance in this film, in a role that is just a few notches up of his normal roles. This is the only film that I've ever watched that had Robin Tunney in it and I would have to say that she's a fairly capable actress but unfortunately not one that stands out.
Director Peter Hyams who is probably best known for some of Hollywood's best marginal films such as "The Presidio," "Outland" and "2010" does a fairly respectable job with the film considering the script available to him.
The Premise:
Here is where the film takes much of its beatings as Schwarzenegger plays Jericho, a former cop turned body guard who has lost his wife and child to criminals and now finds solace in the bottle; a theme that has been done more or less to death in a great many films in this genre. Discounting that particularly overly done theme, the film is based upon the "End of Days" theme, just before the dawn of the millennium in which twenty years prior a girl is born with the mark of the devil and those who follow the devil take up important positions in this girl's life. Coming back to 1999, the devil himself shows up and in order to get his wish of domination, he must mate with this woman, Christine York (Robin Tunney) between 11 pm and 12 am on New Year's Eve...
What follows from there is a movie that is at times over clichéd but does have some well played action sequences and a somewhat intriguing plot that does create a level of intensity towards the films somewhat "comic" conclusion...
Overall, I'd recommend this film to fans of Arnold's and those who like somewhat good action flicks that have a half way decent script. {ssintrepid}

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven - An intense thriller from start to end!, March 28, 2004
This review is from: Seven (Widescreen) (DVD)
"Se7en" can clearly be counted among the tops in the murder/mystery thriller type movies of all time as it is an extremely intense film that frightens the soul and fills the entertainment need for such movies. Fair warning to the faint of heart as the graphics of this film are just as intense as the script itself. Much of this film is based on the script being as intense as it as the two primary characters are trying to figure out who the killer is before he/she makes it all the way through the seven deadly sins; what I find difficult to believe when watching the film though is that the screenwriter felt it was necessary to resort to excessive bouts of cursing as opposed to reasonably intelligent verbiage. I'm far from being a prude of any sort however, a thing can be taken too far and the language of this film was taken too far too often.
Performance wise, what else can be expected of Morgan Freeman other than another marvelous performance! There are very few films in which he's starred that one could say weren't good films and parts for him; he continues to be one of the top actors in the industry. Brad Pitt gives another great performance in this film despite his part being the one in which the screenwriter overindulged in a lack of intelligent writing. Kevin Spacey's actual screen time is very limited in this film but his performance is extremely powerful. Gwyneth Paltrow, such the beauty that she is, has a limited role in the film but leaves an impression nonetheless.
Director David Fincher who is probably best known for such films as the more recent "Fight Club" and "Panic Room" shows an exceptional stylistic flair in "Seven" that carries over to his other films. He certainly deserves a fair amount of credit for this films success over the years.
The Premise:
New York City's finest, Detective Lieutenant William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) finds himself mired in an investigation of a serial killer only one week from retirement. In comes his replacement, Detective David Mills (Brad Pitt) who is eager to take over the case all on his own however, their Captain played by the high spirited retired Marine Corps Staff Sergeant turned Hollywood actor, R. Lee Ermey, refuses to just hand the case over to Mills.
What follows from there is an extremely intense film in which the two detectives are desperately trying to find a killer who is forcing his victims to more or less kill themselves based on the seven deadly sins before he makes it all the way through them...
I highly recommend this film to any and all who are interested in this particular genre of filmmaking as it is, as stated above, an extremely intense thriller type film that will keep one guessing all the way to the extraordinarily frightening conclusion. {ssintrepid}
Special Features:
The one true incongruity of this particular original DVD release of the film is that it is a two sided disc that only contains about half the film on the first side. I don't know where New Line came up with their compression rate for this film and why but very few videophiles, myself included, are appreciative of having to flip a disc to continue the movie! Fortunately, this particular release is out of stock and there are newer version out there in which this technical error has been alleviated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Matchstick Men - A fairly entertaining film!, March 28, 2004
I found this movie to be a fairly entertaining one to watch as the plot of the movie is a well thought out one involving a few twists here and there all culminating in the ultimate con that was not predictable at all; my only regret is not having caught this one in the theaters.
I've never really been a huge fan of Nicholas Cage but one cannot deny his versatility as an actor as he brings forth his extremely neurotic character in this film. Performance wise, Nicholas Cage, Sam Rockwell and newcomer Alison Lohman all deserve high praise for their individual and collective efforts in this film.
Director Ridley Scott, best known for many great films such as "Alien," "Gladiator" and a whole horde of other outstanding films steps in to direct this film and once again his talents as a skillful director shine as he takes us through the somewhat convoluted script, never revealing too much until the right time. He deserves a great amount of credit for the success of this film.
The Premise:
Roy Waller (Nicholas Cage) is an extremely successful con man who has the home and the money to prove it however, he's also an extremely neurotic individual that had an unsuccessful relationship over fifteen years ago and hasn't attempted one since. He suddenly finds that he needs to get some new anti depressants but now he has to go to a new doctor to get them and this psychologists actually wants him to talk about his problems which leads to him having a "daughter." In comes Angela (Alison Lohman), his "daughter" and now he's a parent.
What follows from there is a fairly entertaining film as we're treated to Nicholas Cage at his finest in portraying a lonely, neurotic man who suddenly has a daughter and still has his life as a con man to contend with...
I would definitely recommend this film to any and all who enjoy a good con/comedy that will have you guessing the direction of the film all the way to its conclusion. {ssintrepid}

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lord of the Rings LCE - A beautiful edition to own!, March 27, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not unlike many, Peter Jackson's wonderfully well told cinematic version of "The Lord of the Rings" brought upon me a desire to return to this extraordinary trilogy and read it once again as the first and last time I read it was well over twenty years before. There are many choices of releases in which to read this incomparable tale, from paperbacks to mass trade paperbacks to a few different types of hardbacks and then there is this, this wonderfully well crafted Leatherette Collector's Edition which does much to add to the experience that is reading Tolkien's masterpiece, "The Lord of the Rings."
Personally, I've read a great many novels in several different genres to include the fantasy genre in which Tolkien's first masterpiece "The Hobbit" kindled that love of fantasy fiction and was then further fueled by reading "The Lord of the Rings" so many years ago. In reading so many fantasy novels today, it is so clear that many of today's authors were influenced by Tolkien's style in which he wrote this novel as they almost to a number, mimic the formula for fantasy writing that he established in "LOTR."
For overall feel and ambience, this Leatherette Collector's Edition is the most obvious choice if one is looking to read this great fantasy tale, the only true caution is that it may be a bit cost prohibitive for some but it is well worth every penny and I might add that the best price for this novel may be found here on this site!
The Premise:
By now, many know the overall premise of this extraordinary tale in which Frodo, a hobbit from the Shire in Middle Earth finds himself and his companions thrust into the matters of the world as he is suddenly the ring bearer, the one chosen to bear the ring to Mordor for its ultimate destruction and the end of the dark threat that the creator of that ring, Sauron, poses to the good peoples of Middle Earth. Contained within these well crated pages is nothing less than the most extensive, well thought out, extravagant fantasy tale ever written that transcends the fantasy genre to become a story not of Hobbits, Men, Orcs and other creatures but a story of people and the choices they must make in the harshest of conditions and the care that they have for one another in those circumstances.
Overall, I highly recommend this novel and this wonderful version to any and all that wish to say that they know the true version, in all it's wonderfully glory, of "The Lord of the Rings" as master storyteller; J.R.R. Tolkien meant it to be. Not to take away from the accomplishments of Peter Jackson and the rest involved in making the movies as they're truly beautifully well made movies that are a pure joy to watch but they're but a mere shadow of what is written in the pages of this outstanding novel! {ssintrepid}

5.0 out of 5 stars STV #21 Shadow of Heaven Dark Matters III - A great trilogy!, March 27, 2004
"Shadow of Heaven" is the wonderfully well told conclusion of Christie Golden's Dark Matter trilogy! Of the several Star Trek Voyager books I've read to date, I would definitely have to put this particular trilogy at the top of any list of Voyager novels and well into the top ten of any list of top Trek novels in any series!
Where "Cloak and Dagger" and "Ghost Dance" established the trilogy and furthered it along, "Shadow of Heaven" quickly takes shape in the beautiful "Trek" fashion of wrapping up the many strands that make up a great story! Christie Golden's skills as a writer, in setting up a very plausible premise, carrying an exceptional pace and imbedding a highly intriguing twist or two all shine through brilliantly in this trilogy, making this third novel one that is hard to put down until you've reached the last page.
One extremely minor note of caution in this third novel is that there are some fairly glaring mistakes in where people are but I would highly recommend dismissing those editorial misses as I did, all in favor of the overall excellence of this exemplary tale!
The cover art for this third and final novel in the Dark Matters trilogy is in keeping with the other two in that they're a cut above the rest of the novels published in the same time frame.
The Premise:
Where the first novels established the premise and furthered the story, Christie Golden does an exceptional job of wrapping up the many threads of this wonderful Trek tale where we finally become privy to the rogue Shepherds plot and the good Shepherds role; the exceptional character of the Romulan chairman of the Tal Shiar, Jekri Kaleh and the conclusion of her intriguing tale; the troubles that Chakotay and Paris go through in the Shadow universe and ultimately, the trials that Captain Janeway and her remaining crew aboard Voyager must go through to conclude this extraordinary chapter in their journey home...
Overall, I highly recommend this entire trilogy to any and all who are fans of great Star Trek fiction that more than capably makes up for the lack of these series airing on a weekly basis for our viewing enjoyment. Additionally, I'd highly recommend any other novels written by Christie Golden as she is an exceptional author whose work "must" be acknowledged as among the best in the world of Trek fiction! {ssintrepid}

5.0 out of 5 stars STV #20 Ghost Dance Dark Matters II - Absolutely intriguing!, March 27, 2004
"Ghost Dance" is the second book in Christie Golden's Dark Matters trilogy and as good as the first one, "Cloak and Dagger" was, "Ghost Dance" is that much better. As "Cloak and Dagger" established the premise in which the author chose the character of Romulan scientist Telek R'Mor from Star Trek Voyager's first season episode of "Eye of the Needle" and the events of that episode and has expounded upon them beautifully in this trilogy; "Ghost Dance" takes the tale much further and gets into the heart of the subject.
The most impressive aspect of this and third novel is where the first novel established the premise of the entire trilogy, this second novel is where the true intrigue and the overall compelling nature of the story as a whole kicks in. As I casually read the first novel, this approach was unacceptable for the second as this trilogy turned into a true page turner!
The cover art for this second Dark Matters novel is on par with the first novel and a cut above the rest of the novels published at that time.
The Premise:
In "Cloak and Dagger" we learned that an individual named Lhiau who claimed to be a member of a race known as the Shepherds established contact with the Romulan Empire of twenty years in Voyager's past and that he more or less brought them an offer "they couldn't refuse." His primary contact with the Romulans was established through Jekri Kaleh, the chairman of the Tal Shiar, the Romulan's super secretive security organization. Armed with "superior" cloaking technology given to them by Lhiau, they intended to open a wormhole to the Delta Quadrant and send thirteen Warbirds to seize control of the technologically advanced Voyager...
"Ghost Dance" easily picks up where "Cloak and Dagger" left off, although there is one minor distraction which is the "cleverly" played retrospective of the first novel, just in case somebody decides to start this brilliant Trek trilogy with the second novel instead of the first one.
With "Ghost Dance," Christie Golden's talents as an author shine even more brilliantly as she takes us even deeper into the political intrigue involving the Chairman of the Tal Shiar, Jekri Kaleh; an extremely well written and developed character that more or less carries the story. Along with the exceptionally well written Jekri Kaleh parts, the author's skill in fast paced, narrative and action driven Trek fiction shine as she takes us through Captain Janeway and her crews steps in solving the many problems caused by the rogue Shepherds release of mutated Dark Matter upon their universe and the wonderfully well told sub plot of Chakotay and Paris's experiences after Chakotay dragged them through a "portal" to an unknown planet...
I highly recommend this and the other two novels in the trilogy as author Christie Golden, with this trilogy once again proved why she is one of Star Trek's premier authors. She is truly capable of some of the most creative story telling in the world of Trek fiction! {ssintrepid}

5.0 out of 5 stars STV #19 Cloak and Dagger Dark Matters I - A great start!, March 27, 2004
"Cloak and Dagger" is the first installment in a trilogy of Voyager novels by Star Trek Voyager's premier author, Christie Golden. Going back all the way to her first Star Trek Voyager novel "The Murdered Sun," Christie Golden has quite well proven herself as the "authority" in Voyager novels as she's written several of them to include two relaunch novels that follow up with the crew after their return to Earth.
Among the typically more interesting Star Trek novels are those that are loosely or in whole based upon a character or two that appeared in a single episode. This is the formula that Christie Golden chose for this trilogy in which she takes the story told in Star Trek Voyager's first season episode "Eye of the Needle" and primarily the character of Telek R'Mor and expounds on it in beautiful fashion to create yet another great Star Trek Voyager tale.
The cover art for this novel is typical of Star Trek Voyager novels at the time in which it was published making it a cut above the majority.
The premise:
In Voyager's first season episode "Eye of the Needle" Ensign Harry Kim discovers a wormhole and raises his hopes thinking that it might lead the crew of Voyager home to the Alpha quadrant. Unfortunately, their hopes are dashed when they discover that the wormhole is ancient and way too small for Voyager to fly through. By a stroke of "luck" though, a Romulan scientist is experimenting with the wormhole in the Alpha quadrant and they make contact with him only to have their hopes dashed once again when they find out that this scientist, Telek R'Mor is from twenty years in the past and that the wormhole possesses temporal qualities...
Jump approximately five years in the future and Christie Golden's Dark Matters trilogy begins with "Cloak and Dagger" as the crew of Voyager find themselves running an obstacle course of multiple wormholes opening up in their path as they're making their way home to the Alpha quadrant...
What follows from there is one of the best Star Trek Voyager novels written up to its publishing date in which Christie Golden takes the character and events of "Eye of the Needle" and weaves an extremely well told tale involving Romulan intrigue and subterfuge that rarely falls short in the compelling read category.
I highly recommend this novel and the following two in the trilogy to any and all fans of Star Trek fiction as this Star Trek Voyager novel written by Christie Golden is very typical of her high standard of science fiction in which she writes with excellent pacing and characterizations resulting in a highly compelling read! {ssintrepid}

5.0 out of 5 stars The Runaway Jury - An excellent film!, March 26, 2004
With this outstanding movie, moviegoers are treated to another extremely well written story from the master of legal thrillers, John Grisham. From the beginning to the end of this film it is a taut, intense thriller of a tale that has the viewer guessing the end result the whole way through and as any good thriller of this nature is, most will not see the outcome coming until the director wants you to.
One of the most amazing aspects of this film is that after so many years in the business, it's the first time Dustin Hoffman and Gene Hackman have squared off in a film and it is done perfectly, both deserving of high praise for their performances in this film. I've never been a big fan of John Cusack and his performance in this film doesn't really change that too greatly but he does do a great job with this script. Rachel Weisz, as ever beautiful and talented gives a great performance in this film to include her American accent.
Director Gary Fleder, probably best known for "Kiss the Girls" and "Don't Say A Word" does an outstanding job with this film although one can't help but think that with such an exceptional script it would almost be too difficult to not make such a wonderful legal thriller.
The Premise:
"The Runaway Jury" is the story of a major trial where a widow is suing a weapons manufacturing company that just happened to be the one that made the weapon that was used by a killer who went on a shooting spree in her husband's office, killing her husband and several other before turning the weapon on himself. As these trials happen occasionally and the jury's have never sided with the plaintiffs, this is a huge trial and the money involved is astronomical. In comes Gene Hackman's character that is a jury consultant for the defense and has never lost a case and he's up against a local lawyer for the plaintiff played by Dustin Hoffman. The true catalyst for the suspense of this film kicks in when Rachel Weisz's character steps into the picture, informing the key players that she can guarantee a verdict and proves that she has some pull with the jury...
What follows from there is one of the most intense legal thrillers available on DVD today that is a pure joy to watch. I highly recommend this film to any and all who enjoy these types of films. {ssintrepid}

2.0 out of 5 stars Solaris - A relatively disappointing Sci-Fi flick!, March 23, 2004
This review is from: Solaris (DVD)
"Solaris" is a conceptually idealistic love story couched in a Science Fiction film that is highly reminiscent of Sc-Fi films and novels in the fifties and sixties. That being said, it does accomplish that to a certain degree but the overall outcome of the film is a less than spectacular film that leaves one looking at their watch as the DVD plays on.
One of the most surprising aspects of this film is that one of its primary producers is James Cameron himself. Typically, if his name is stamped on a project it is destined for success but that unfortunately doesn't happen here. Perhaps had he taken the director's chair for this film it might've been a touch better.
Performance wise, all of the actors involved did a good job with their respective roles, the script not withstanding. To date, I would have to say that George Clooney's departure from the small screen to big screen has been a more or less lesson in hit and miss, with this film scoring as a miss.
Director Steve Soderbergh, best known for films such as "Erin Brokovich" and "Ocean's Eleven" more or less stepped outside of his comfort zone with this film and the seeming end result of his traveling in the Science Fiction lane leaves one to the conclusion that he probably won't travel in it again.
The Premise:
George Clooney plays Chris Kelvin who is a company psychologist sent to a space station orbiting an extremely mysterious planet. He's sent there after the crew stops responding to hails from the company and one of those crew members sends a message specifically asking for him. Upon his arrival he finds that some of the crew is dead and he too starts experiencing the same problems that everyone else had. A few years prior, his wife had died and now, in the middle of his first night on the station she shows up in his room with him...
What follows from there is a story that is quite different in and of its self where the primary characters are trying to cope with these mysterious characters from their pasts showing up.
Overall, I'd recommend this film primarily as a rental to most movie watchers. Of no doubt is that there are some out there who would find an appreciation for this films approach unfortunately, I'm not one of them. {ssintrepid}
