2.0 out of 5 stars Review, July 27, 2003
This review is from: Final Destination 2 (DVD)
Being a huge fan of the first film I was looking forward to watching the sequel. The premise of the original placed a clever tone on the horror genre, however Final Destination 2 failed to capture, much less exceed the its predecessor. A good sequel should take the story farther than the original. This movie placed more focus on finding inventive ways to off the characters rather than develop and enganging and suspensful story. Don't get me wrong, some of the deaths were inventive but the film for lack of a better word lacked gusto. The first film took time in displaying the death's design, the sequel on the other hand showed the design early on (and it was predictable), so the only thing you had to look forward to was not who was going to die/of if they could find a way to escape, but rather how they were going to die (or how horribly they were going to die). Gore has its place, but alone it makes a movie rather empty.
This movie is fun to watch, but if you are intending to find something more engaging you may want to watch something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See, December 17, 1999
This review is from: Europa Europa [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I was forced to view this movie as a requirement for an undergraduate history class. I have never been excited about foreign films but nevertheless viewed the film. To my suprise Europa, Europa was an incredible account of a young man's life in World War II. This movie changed my perspective on both the Holocaust and foreign films. A rememberable movie and one that everyone should see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make NO LAW, December 17, 1999
I read this book in one of my undergraduate constitutional law classes on the First Amendment. "Make No Law" was an inciteful and intriguing look into the history behind New York Times v. Sullivan and the resulting libel jurisprudence.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works, December 17, 1999
Liberal Peace, Liberal war gives an intriguing look into the thought processes of liberal countries in concern to peaceful and conflictual relations with other countries that it sees to be either liberal or illiberal. This books give a new approach to the role of national values and institutions in shaping of foreign policy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't blame the Republicans, December 17, 1999
Fenno takes an interesting perspective on the Republican's inability to lead the 104th Congress successfully. After being out of control of both branches of government for forty years, the Republicans were not adjusted to political leadership, that coupled with key (R) leaders unable to learn the art of compromise the (R) were doomed to fail. This book gives an interesting account of the structural and institutional factors that prevented the Republican congress from successful political leadership. A must read!
