My Thoughts:
I bought this one a whole back ago solely to add to my Sandra Bullock collection. I must say it is one of my favorites... One of the best romantic comedy roles I have seen her in. I enjoyed every minute of it. Bill Pullman was good in this movie as well. Not to mention it was a lot of fun watching Peter Boyle also. I definitely recommend this movie. Unfortunately the only extra on this release is some trailers. But at least it does have the Theatrical trailer (a pet peeve of mine).

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
I been wanting to check this movie out since I got it. I was never a huge fan of Hogan's Heroes... but I enjoyed it enough that I would watch it when I found it on TV. So I knew enough about it to know who Bob Crane was. But I didn't know till today about his exploits or the fact that he was murdered. I'm embarrassed to say that even till about half way into the movie I thought John Carpenter was THE John Carpenter (writer/Director of Halloween)... but then it became fairly clear it was not supposed to be him. I found this movie to be very interesting. But the whole time watching it I kept going back and forth on what rating I wanted to give this one... a 3.5 or 4. By the end of the movie it won me over a bit more. Definitely worth checking out if you never seen it. Though when I watch movies such as this one... I can't help but to wonder just how accurate it is to his actual life. But either way... it seems Bob Crane definitely walked on the wild side.

Greg Kinnear is another actor that I never cared much for in his past roles... but I must admit... he did a right good job in this one. And I always liked Willem Dafoe in the movies I seen him in... so he was a plus as Bob Crane's friend (John Carpenter).

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


VOY 6.12 Blink of an Eye
Writer: Joe Menosky (Screenwriter), Michael Taylor (Original Material By)
Director: Gabrielle Beaumont
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), Daniel Dae Kim (Pilot), Obi Ndefo (Protector), Daniel Zacapa (Astronomer), Olaf Pooley (Cleric), Jon Cellini (Technician), Kat Sawyer-Young (Astronaut), Melik Malkasian (Shaman), Walter Hamilton McCready (Tribal Alien), Scarlett Pomers (Naomi Wildman)

Another episode on the same disc. I always found this episode interesting. Voyager is caught in the orbit of a planet, which exists in a different time-frame. One second on Voyager is one day on the planet. The inhabitants are seeing Voyager for centuries and their whole civilization is heavily influenced by the "skyship". We see the evolution from a primitive culture to a spacefaring civilization which ultimately helps Voyager to free itself from the orbit.
