A View to a Kill, a review by Tom
Title: A View to a Kill
Director: John Glen
Length: 126 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35
Audio: German: Dolby Digital Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital Surround, English: Dolby Digital 5.1, Commentary: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles: English, German, Spanish
My Thoughts:An obvious 80's movie. It starts with the opening music, followed by the spy robot of Q.
This movie is not as bad as I remembered it. The beginning was rather fun and I also liked the showdown.
Even though I usually like Christopher Walken, I have the feeling that he is misplaced as a Bond villain. Somehow the movie seemed more like a parody to me.

A Man Who Was Superman, a review by Tom
Jeong-min Hwang as Superman
Gianna Jun as Song Soo-jung
Woo-hyuk Choi as Superman - child
Ji-hee Jin as Hee-jeong / Ji-yeong
" I saw Superman, today..." And along came a strange man.
SONG Soo-jung is a producer going on her third year at a small company. Her specialty is human interest stories. She is driven to produce these shallow stories for the sake of her ambition of one day becoming Korea's own Oprah Winfrey. However, she is reaching the end of what's left of her pride. One day, after months of not getting paid, she leaves her office with the company camera to produce a story on a lion apparently refusing to eat its mean. On her way, however, she comes across a robber, but she is saved somehow by Superman in a Hawaiian shirt. "Superman" claims he's unable to tap into his supernatural powers as the bad guys have placed kryptonite inside his head. However he doesn't let that get in his way of helping others, from saving the world from global warming to saving a lost puppy. Soo-jung can see this will make a good story and, with a little tweaking and a little fabricating, she produces the Superman Saves the World documentary which goes on to be a rating hit. However, the true story behind this "Superman," including the bullet and not the kryptonite that is lodged in his brain, helps the frosty, calculating Soo-jung to awaken to what's truly important in life.
My Thoughts:An interesting movie. After he was involved and injured in a tragic accident, a guy thinks he is Superman. It begins rather light-hearted, when the reporter encounters him and is following him around. At first rather amused by him, she gets to know him and his motivations, which changes her.
Doesn't this guy have a slight resemplance with Dean Cain from "Lois & Clark"?

"Stargate SG-1" Marathon, a review by DJ Doena
AllegianceSynopsis: A Tok'ra base has been overrun by Anubis's troops and a group of SG teams helps to evacuate. They bring the Tok'ra to the Alpha Site, a planet unknown to the Goa'uld. The Jaffa rebels also live there since they've been betrayed by Imhotep. But both groups don't get along very well and it escalates when a Jaffa and a Tok'ra is killed under dubious circumstances.
My Opinion: In my opinion they portrayed the conflict well, because the basic statement is correct: While both are fighting for the same cause, they have been enemies for ages and that isn't solved over night. The "crisis management" of Jack, Bra'tac and Jacob/Selmak was also believable.
CureSynopsis: SG-1 comes to a planet that technologically isn't as far developed as Earth but they can offer something else: Tretonin. A medicine than can cure all kinds of illnesses and prevents from getting ill. The catch is that it suspends the natural immune system, that it has to be taken regularily and how it is produced.
My Opinion: What I liked here was the moral conflict. Nobody except SG-1 seems to have any problem with using a Goa'uld queen as long as it was just any queen. When it turns out to be Egeria, the mother of all Tok'ra, it becomes reprehensible. I liked it.
PrometheusSynopsis: A reporter has learned of a secret project, code name "Prometheus". But it isn't what she'd thought it was, but the X-303, the first human-built mothership with hyperlight drive. But then Colonol Simmons and Adrian Conrad hijack it and only Sam and Jonas are on board to stop them.
My Opinion: I liked the cock-and-bull story Sam told the reporter of how they gained access to the alien technology and her intentional avoiding of the word "Roswell". While I liked the episode, the threat to blow up the ship and Nevada had a flaw: The Goa'uld's instinct of self preservation is extremely high and I would rule Simmons out as a martyr. I would have called the bluff.
Unnatural SelectionSynopsis: SG-1 is asked by Thor to fly with the X-303 (Jack wasn't allowed to name her "Enterprise") to the home galaxy of the Asgards and fight the Replicators once again. The Asgard had an ingenious plan but it failed miserably. Now SG-1 has to face a completely new generation of Replicators.
My Opinion: When I wrote the above summary a moment ago, I actually wrote "new generation of Cylons" - and truth be told, that wasn't that far a mental leap. The new Replicators look like humans but they aren't. One of the five Replicators is played by Tahmoh Penikett (Karl "Helo" Agathon in Battlestar Galactica) who has a child with a Cylon in BSG.
There are other similarities as well. While the first four are normal Replicators, Fifth (Patrick Currie) has become much more human, an attribute he shares with certain Cylon models.
I liked this episode, too.
