The Adjustment Bureau, a review by Dragonfire

I managed to see The Adjustment Bureau while it was still in the theater here.

The movie is based on a short story by Phillip K. Dick.  I haven't read the story, so I have no clue how much the story has been changed for the movie.  The plot is interesting and makes an entertaining movie, though I do think certain things are more predictable.  There are science fiction elements to the movie, though not typical ones.  The movie has a more normal feel than many of the science fiction movies I've seen.  The plot progresses in a way that explains things fairly well.  There is a little bit of action in a few scenes without the movie being action packed.  There are few chases that are more interesting because they are done in a more unique way. 

A relationship develops in a different sort of way between David and Elise.  Some of what happens between them is kind of sweet.  Something else that happens isn't as nice.  The characters are interesting, though they could be developed a bit better.

I did enjoy the movie overall and think it is worth seeing.


I did post a review on Epinions after seeing the movie in the theater.

Metamorphosis, a review by Jimmy

Title : Metamorphosis (1990)

A university researcher is working to crack the human gene code in order to create a serum that would prevent aging. Pressured by the administration to publish his papers and produce some results or risk losing funding, the scientist decides to use himself as a guinea pig for the latest serum he's developed. Suffering no apparent side effects at first, the scientist eventually discovers that the serum has indeed altered him in a manner most unexpected.

My Impression
Not a movie that I can call original, since it really looks like The Fly but that doesn't means that this isn't a good movie. From the beginning you know that it will turn bad for the scientist and it will turn bad... The first effect is a loss of memory and a really agressive comportement (I've experiment the same thing when I was drinking too much, the memory blackout not the hyper agressivity :laugh:), after he will age really fast and at the end he will became the most stupid thing I've ever seen in a science going bad movie
(click to show/hide)
This last metamorphosis is ridicule, but I have not laugh like that since a long time. The movie is an italian production, but it was not dubbed in english something very rare and appreciated.

Not a great movie, but a very entertaining one...

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom

     Saturday Night Live: Season One (1975/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

Universal Studios Home Entertainment (United States)
Length:1594 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo

Nicknamed the "Not Ready for Prime Time Players," the original cast of Saturday Night Live ignited a comedy revolution with their mix of irreverent characters and satirical impressions of political figures and pop culture icons.

From the premiere of this groundbreaking sketch comedy show on October 11, 1975, live from historical Studio 8H in New York City's Rockefeller Center, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Chevy Chase, Garrett Morris, Laraine Newman, and Gilda Radner launched themselves into instant stardom and were often referred to as "The Beatles of Comedy."

Created by Lorne Michaels over three decades ago, few other shows have had the cultural impact and relevance of Saturday Night Live.

Nowhere else can you see the complete first season of SNL, featuring hosts George Carlin, Rob Reiner, Lily Tomlin, Richard Pryor, Elliott Gould, Candace Bergen, or original musical performances by Simon & Garfunkel, ABBA, Patti Smith, Jimmy Cliff, and Carly Simon. And if you're curious as to how the original cast was hired, check out the DVD bonus features that include the screen tests of each performer.

The first ever SNL show. George Carlin is the host here, with some hit and miss jokes. My favorite part of this episode is the now famous Mightly Mouse skit by Andy Kaufman.
