My Thoughts:
I became curious about this movie when I saw Dianna Agron on the cover. I didn't hear about it before. I enjoyed this movie. The screenplay is by the creators of Smallville (and a writer/producer of Buffy), and this movie had very much a Smallville kind of vibe to it.
Seems this is based on a series of books. But sadly the movie didn't fair too well and it looks like there will be no sequel. Which is a shame. I would have liked to see more of it.

Antwone Fisher, a review by addicted2comics



Antwone Fisher

The Plot: Antwone Fisher, a young navy man, is forced to see a psychiatrist after a violent outburst against a fellow crewman. During the course of treatment a painful past is revealed and a new hope begins.

My Thoughts: It took some time before I wanted to watch this, being it 2 hours long. (Idk, guess I have a short attention span)

When I sat down and watched it, really it started off slow, as expected. Still, its a good inspirational movie. You have you romance. You have family. You have tough times. You have realism. You even have a chuckle every now and then.

It can be dark at times, and anyone who knows me knows I'm all about the lighthearted movies, but if you're looking for a movie with meaning and inspiration, I highly recommend this.

My Rating
Out of 5

"Stargate SG-1" Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Disc 6

Double Jeopardy
Synopsis: SG-1 comes to a planet where the inhabitants declare that they have visted before. Back then they helped to defeat Heru-ur's troops. But now Cronus has come with a Ha'tak and claims the planet for himself. SG-1 gets caught and Daniel gets "killed". Now the Team needs help from themselves.

My Opinion: The funny thing about this episode is that one can guess very early where this is going. The android doppelganger are still wearing the HK MP5 as weapons instead of the FN P90 that is been handed out in recent episodes. Additionally Carter is wondering why she's refered to as "Major" and Jack mentions that there are "two" of them. When I first saw this episode I guessed that this is the real team and when Jack mentioned this I thought the androids had been the team that went there first.
I liked the episode even though it was sad that all the androids were destroyed. With the death of Cronus another Goa'uld got what he deserved.

Exodus
Synopsis: With the Ha'tak SG-1 "aquired" from Cronus they fly to the planet of the Tok'ra. The latter want to relocate their Stargate to a planet unknown to the System Lords. But there Tanith - the Goa'uld who deceived Shan'auc - must not go. But then Apophis closes in with a fleet and the Tok'ra develop a very risky plan.

My Opinion: The idea to turn a sun into a supernova with the help of a Stargate is an "interesting" plan that is hard to top.
But what attrackted my attention in this episode, was something different: It's usual with series that at the beginning of the season some innovations are introduced that were invented by the writers during the break. In Stargate SG-1 this often happens within the last episodes although it wasn't really necessary. For example, the Zats have been introduced in the last episode of the first season, not at the begin of the second. But they didn't really need them back then. The Al'kesh - a Goa'uld bomber - was introduced in this episode although there could have been other ways to continue the plot.
The Ha'tak and the memory retrieval device have been introduced in a season finale but they were necessary for the plot, i.e. the plot was based upon them.

The Season - My Opinion: Surprisingly there were few direct confrontations with the Goa'uld in this season. Many episodes were playing on Earth or were related to it and the others were Planet-of-the-Week episodes. If one considers that Apophis has the control over Sokar's fleet and is supposedly very powerful, he kept quite still. On the other hand the writer can't find endless ways to let them both clash and SG-1 win. But I liked the Earth episodes and the PotW were mostly ok.
