My Thoughts:
Thought I would go with a comedy the first thing this morning. Unfortunately I did end up with much of one. I wasn't even half an hour in and I wondered if I could make it through this movie. I did somehow make it till the end of the movie. I am not sure how... I was somehow unable to look away. The movie is very predictable.. I knew where it was going every step of the way. And worst of all... as hard as it tried it just was not funny. I wasn't even able to crack a smile watching this one. Well at least not till the end credits when they showed some out-takes. They were the best thing about the entire movie. This movie has some very pretty girls in it. But they do more then play down their looks... they actually sabotage them. Giving them these huge hairdos and I don't know what else. I will be a bit generous with my rating of this movie for the sole reason I did enjoy the outtakes during the end credits as much as I did.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Pushing Tin, a review by Rich

Pushing Tin

In the tradition of 'Grosse Pointe Blank' comes an unconventional comedy about two air traffic controllers whose intense rivalry and penchant for one-upmanship causes hilarious havoc with their careers, their marriages - and the planes in their airspace!
Nick Falzone (John Cusack) is the busiest, and the best, air traffic controller on Long Island - until Russell Bell (Billy Bob Thornton) roars into town like a motorcycle-riding cowboy. Fuelled by caffeine and machismo, the two men embark upon an uproarious contest of wit and wills that can ultimately only have one winner. Co-starring Cate Blanchett and Angelina Jolie, 'Pushing Tin' is "One of a kind... a high-flying, free-spirited, wildly funny blast of originality." (CBS-TV)

Comedy revolving around air traffic controllers which quickly meandered into an uneven tale of male rivalry. Sharp dialogue and some entertaining scenes, including the runway jetstream shot, do not make up for a poorly fitting cast and weak character development. BBT is interesting at first, but his inner being and reasons for his aloof demeanour are never explained fully, Cusack is unsympahetic to the role, and Jolie tries too hard in an undemanding position.
Despite a good opening the film is an anti-climax, the promise of a dramatic finale is lost in a too intense voyage in stress and marital problems.
I cannot recommend this film unless you buy it very cheaply and have a major interest in aircraft controllers!

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom

     Bewitched: The First Three Episodes From the First Season (1964/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

(United States)
Length:76 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo

1.01 I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha
Writer: Sol Saks (Writer)
Director: William Asher
Cast: Elizabeth Montgomery (Samantha), Dick York (Darrin Stephens), Agnes Moorehead (Endora), Gene Blakely (Dave), Lindsay Workman (Doctor), Paul Barselow (Bartender), Nancy Kovack (Sheila)

I only have the first three episodes of this series. They were part of a special bundled release of the Will Ferrell "Bewitched" movie. I always more of a fan of Jeannie than Bewitched. So I never really followed this series.
I think it is unreasonable that Darrin asks his wife to never do magic even if they are alone.
This release is a colorized version. I first didn't notice this, until I wondered if the green eyes are Elizabeth Montgomery's natural eye color. Then I saw that the first two seasons were originally black and white. So it could very well have been a side-effect of the colorization process. Otherwise everything looked good considering.
