My Thoughts:
Felt like a natural disaster movie this morning. This is in a 4 movie set (2 of which is about 3hrs long) that cost me about $5.00.... which means it is about $1.25 per movie. So at that price I really can't complain too much. Supernova is an almost 3hr TV movie that originally aired on the Hallmark Channel. Not that this is a bad movie... I did enjoy it for what it is. It is just that there was a lot of slow parts. Not surprising with a 3hr movie.... but there is plenty here that could have been taken out to make a more exciting story. I did like the one side storyline that they had going... where we learn earlier on one of the scientist's wife was brutally attacked... the attacker now in jail... but swearing to get revenge. This attacker escapes and comes after the wife and their daughter. The main storyline... while interesting... definitely could have been better. I think it could have had a better conclusion as well as shortened some. But it isn't bad for a lazy day of TV watching... just don't expect too much from it.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Diebuster: The Movie, a review by dfmorgan


Diebuster: The Movie


Year: 2006
Director: Kazuya Tsurumaki
Cast:
Overview: In a future where the Space Monsters resume their invasion of the Sol System, the abilities of young men and women known as the Topless, and their Buster Machines, are mankind's final line of defense! One day, runaway girl Nono sets out for the capital to become a space pilot, and meets the fighter ace Lal'C...neither realizing that the future of humanity rests on the both of them!
Presented for the first time in full HD, the theatrical release version of the long-awaited GUNBUSTER sequel OVA (aka GUNBUSTER 2) from the director of FLCL is the second half of a diptych that started with GUNBUSTER The Movie!

Watched: 1st Mar 2010
My Thoughts: Like Gunbuster: The Movie this film is an abridgement of the original 6 episode series Diebuster (aka Gunbuster 2). This is the first time I've seen this, in either form. The setting for this film is within the time-frame covered by Gunbuster. An excellent film which has made me place an order for the original 6 episode series as well as going for the R1 remastered Gunbuster series.

Tom's Random Star Trek Reviews, a review by Tom


VOY 4.03 Day of Honor
Writer: Jeri Taylor (Writer)
Director: Jesús Salvador Treviño
Cast: Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway), Robert Beltran (Chakotay), Roxann Dawson (B'Elanna Torres), Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris), Ethan Phillips (Neelix), Robert Picardo (The Doctor), Tim Russ (Tuvok), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim), Alexander Enberg (Ensign Vorik), Alan Altshuld (Lumas), Michael A. Krawic (Rhamin), Kevin P. Stillwell (Moklor), Majel Barrett (Computer Voice (voice))

This is the second big P/T episode. Voyager must dump its warp core (I think this was the first time ever, that we actually saw the warp core eject from the ship on-screen in any Star Trek series). B'Elanna and Tom take a shuttle to get the core back, but are left stranded in environment suits with not much oxygen left. This leads to some heart-to-heart and a love confession by B'Elanna shortly before they would have died if Voyager hadn't shown up in the nick of time.
Although I like this episode and the P/T moments, it was much too sudden. They slowly built up the relationship during season three, and in the first episode in season 4 with P/T content they suddenly get together. Originally it was planned to continue slowly building up that relationship in season 4, but when Roxann Dawson (B'Elanna) became pregnant in real life, they decided to get Tom and B'Elanna together before the actress started showing.

P/T moments: About half of the episode, but the most important is of course the last scene.
