My Thoughts:
I went into this one not knowing what to think. All I knew was that it is a Drew Barrymore film I never seen before. And that I am a fan of Drew Barrymore. I must say I enjoyed this one a lot. And that is saying something... especially when you consider that I never been much of a fan of period films. But I got to say this is the best adaptation of the Cinderella story I ever seen. It caught my attention from the very beginning and it kept me glued to my seat for the entire movie. This one is definitely worth the time put n to watch it. I wholeheartedly recommend it. I just wish there was more extras then the theatrical trailer.

My Rating:

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


Disc 3

Avenger 2.0
Synopsis: Doctor Felger is afraid that he is about to be thrown out of the SGC. Thus he presents the (not yet fully developed) plan to infest the Stargate DHDs with a computer virus that would effectively render them useless. But this plan backfires on a grand scale and Ba'al takes advantage of the situation.

My Opinion: Unfortunately Coombs wasn't present in this episode but Felger was fun to watch again. I find it interesting that they still have new ideas regarding the abilities of the Stargate and the DHD. But they always keep it simple and don't start technobabbling. Still it gives them a means to tell interesting stories.

Birthright
Synopsis: SG-1 encounters a group of "Amazon" Jaffas who live in a secret place. From there they have to gather Goa'uld larvae on a regular basis to give it to their younger sisters. But SG-1 has a better idea.

My Opinion: Granted, I watched only half a season of Star Trek: Enterprise but I immediately liked Jolene Blalock (T'Pol in ENT) better in the role of the Jaffa leader than in her role as Vulcan. But that is also based on the fact that she could be wilder/more emotional. I also liked the conflict of whether they should use the Tretonin.

Evolution
Synopsis: A single super soldier slaughters the Jaffa of two minor Goa'ulds and kills one of the Goa'ulds. Bra'tac and Teal'c are able to stop him just to find out that it wasn't them who stopped him. Anubis has built these warriors with technology of the Ancients. The same technology was used to build the very first sarcophagus aeons ago. Daniel tries to find this device now: The mythological "Fountain of Youth".

My Opinion: It's quite fascinating how single characters can defy the laws of inertia - no matter how big/fast the moving object or the explosion, they stand their ground if they want to. ;) The introduction of the Kull warriors was nearly inevitable because even huge armies of Jaffa are no opposition to SG-1 anymore. But they didn't make the mistake to portray the Kull warriors as invincible. Sooner or later that would lead to the need of finding a way to defeat them (keyword: the Borg). But instead they showed that there is a way to defeat them - in principle.

Evolution, Part 2
Synopsis: Through the captured Kull warrior the Tok'ra are able to find the home planet of these new super warriors. Jacob/Selmak, Teal'c and Sam travel there to stop the production of any more of these. While they're off-world, Jack tries to free Daniel, who's being held captive by rebels in the border region of Honduras and Nicaragua.

My Opinion: Jack didn't have to have much luck with his comrades except for Kawalsky. That was before SG-1, of course. Back in A Matter of Time they also mentioned that he was left behind on a special op. Here they managed to portray his buddy very ambivalently. It wasn't clear what happend back then until they revealed it.
I also liked the flight from Tartarus and the innovative way to use a ring transporter.
