My Thoughts:
This is one that I actually burned myself off an old recording off the TV. So needless to say the quality from an old VHS Tape left a lot to be desired. But I must admit... considering the source material... it came out better then I thought it would. I have always been a fan of all the Bionic series. And this reunion movie is no different. I enjoyed watching it again after many years. I got a kick out of both Steve Austin and Jaime Somers feeling obsolete after seeing the new Bionic Man (Steve's son). Kept saying... "Hey... I can't do that!"


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Nina's Heavenly Delights, a review by Tom




Title: Nina's Heavenly Delights
Year: 2006
Director: Pratibha Parmar
Rating: PG
Length: 91 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles:

Stars:
Laura Fraser
Shelley Conn
Art Malik
Ronny Jhutti
Veena Sood

Plot:
Nina Shah (Shelley Conn) is a feisty, young Indo-Scottish woman with an identity crisis who left home under a cloud after a row with her father. When her father dies suddenly, Nina is forced to return and run the family owned Curry House. This reunites her with her childhood friend Bobbi (Ronny Jhutti), a Bollywood drag queen and brings her face to face with Lisa (Fraser), a charismatic young woman to whom Nina's father sold 50 percent of the restaurant. Nina embarks on a personal mission to win the 'Best of the West' curry competition, a highly coveted prize in the world of Indian cuisine. But Nina's feelings are thrown into turmoil when she realises that she is falling in love, with Lisa. Can she win both prizes?

Preceptively scripted by Andrea Gibb (Dear Frankie) and featuring outstanding performances from Conn (Charlie and the Chocolate Family) and Fraser (Titus), Nina's Heavenly Delights is a vibrant and original work.

Extras:
Scene Access
Trailers

My Thoughts:
An enjoyable movie. The romance between the two girls is developed nicely. Would I find a little unbelievable is Nina's mother sudden acceptence of this relationship, when it was made clear throughout the movie, that Nina's family is very conservative.

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Doctor Who (2005)


What's the show about?
The Doctor is an alien, the last of the Time Lords and he travels with his TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space) to any point in time and to any planet he wants. The Doctor often travels with a Companion, most of the time a human woman. Wherever he goes, there's a mystery to be solved and sometimes the entire universe is at stake, in this dimension or another.

"Rose"
When Rose tries to close the shop she's working in she's attacked by the window dummies. At first she thinks it's a student prank until she gets rescued by a man who calls himself only The Doctor and the entire building explodes. This entire evening was so weird that she tells nobody what really happened until she gets attacked by a dummy arm again and is again rescued by him. A Nestene Consciousness tries to take over the world and only The Doctor can prevent it.

My Opinion
If one likes weird science-fiction stories (such as I) with way-out ideas thrown in for good measure then one should definitively give it a try. I've seen a few episodes of the old Doctor Who but not enough to make a valid comparison. But I really like the new series on its own, especially since they are not afraid to re-use old enemies without re-designing them. The Daleks look like from a 50s movie but that makes it so charming. Too bad that UK seasons are always so short.
