My Thoughts:
A very early Shahrukh Khan movie, where he plays a character which is different then the ones he plays later on. Here is a psychopath who destroy a woman's life because she does not want to have anything to do with him.

The movie starts off like the usual romantic comedy. A wealthy arrogant man falls in love with a woman, but who rejects him. He then learns that she is marrying another man. The opening credits set in here, half an hour after the movie started, as if to say, that now, the real movie starts. SRK sets things in motion, which leads to him killing the husband of the love interest, framing her in getting her into the jail. Also her sister and daughter dies, as well as her unborn child. This is the point where the movie turns into Lady Vengeance.
SRK has deserved his Best Villain award. Also Madhuri Dixit did a great job.

My Thoughts:
This is a film a good friend gave me. Being I am a huge vampire fan... I went into it hopeful... though before the movie I watched the trailer and wasn't too impressed by it which dashed my hopes a little. Unfortunately as hard as I tried I just couldn't get into this one. Matter of fact I didn't even make it to the end. The storyline had possibilities. It could have been a decent film. But I found I didn't care about any of the characters... and found the acting to be on the stiff side. I will rate this one a 0.5 for the story idea alone.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

6.24 Time's Orphan
Writer: Bradley Thompson (Screenwriter), David Weddle (Screenwriter), Joe Menosky (Original Material By)
Director: Allan Kroeker
Cast: Avery Brooks (Captain Sisko), Rene Auberjonois (Odo), Michael Dorn (Lt. Commander Worf), Terry Farrell (Lt.

O'Brien's daughter Molly falls through a time portal and lands hundreds of years in the past. When they are able to retrieve her, ten years have passed for her, living and surviving alone in the wilderness. Which of course causes her problems adjusting again to her live on DS9.
It is a good episode. Even though the ending is a little cop out.
