Baby Mama, a review by Critter


Baby Mama



Year: 2008

Director: Micheal McCullers

Cast: Tina Fey, Sigourney Weaver, Steve Martin, Holland Taylor, Amy Poehler, Greg Kinnear

Plot: A successful, single businesswoman who dreams of having a baby discovers she is infertile and hires a working class woman to be her unlikely surrogate.

My Thoughts: I found this film to be a very enjoyable, light-hearted comedy that I can see myself watching time and time again. Being a fan of Tina Fey from her 30 Rock and Mean Girls fame I was thrilled to see her teamed up in a film with Poehler. I feel that Fey and Poohler have a great, on screen comedic chemistry which has been displayed throughout many seasons of SNL. While the plot wasn't exactly deep or moving on any levels, which of course I didn't expect it to be, I still found the film very entertaining with quite a few laugh out loud moments. While the two lead women were fantastic I was delightfully surpised with the performances of Steve Martin and Sigourney Weaver who both portrayed interesting, and somewhat eccentric characters. I especially enjoyed seeing Weaver in such a light-hearted role in a comedy as I have been a fan of her from the Aliens franchise for a long time and love seeing her in something other than sci-fi. Overall this was a fun film with plenty of laughs that was definatly carried well by the great cast.

My Rating:

We thought they were just a fairy tale. We were wrong. In an underground bunker, military scientists clone a deadly fire-breathing dragon.

For security chief David Carver (Dean Cain), the only goal is keeping the most fearsome predator to ever walk the Earth from destroying it. For the rest of mankind, the goal is survival.

Extras:
Scene Access
Feature Trailers

My Thoughts:
This is a direct to video release. I find the storyline interesting... but the movie itself is no more then an average sci-fi/horror fair. They keep using a split screen quite a bit... which takes away from the story for me. I do like Dean Cain... who I know of from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. I got mixed reactions on how they did the dragon itself... in some scenes it looked really cool. But in other scenes it looked on the cheesy side. I did get a kick out of how they did away with the dragon. Not a bad way to waste an hour and a half... but not something I would go out of my way to watch.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Highlander



What's the show about?
Duncan MacLeod was born 400 years ago in the scottish Highlands and he is immortal - at least as long as nobody cuts his head off. He is not alone. There are more immortals out there like him and they all are waiting for the Gathering, when only few of them are left alive and they fight for The Prize.

What happened before?
For this series to work it has to be places in an alternate reality then the first Highlander movie (Why do I say "the first Highlander movie?" There is only one Highlander movie ;)). In the movie Connor MacLeod fought against Kurgan in the Gathering and won The Prize.

"The Gathering"
A young man breaks into Duncan MacLeod's antiques store and is mistaken for an immortal. But then the immortal Slan Quince enters and is going for Duncan's head. Additionally another immortal arrives: Connor MacLeod, the same clan but another vintage. ;) But Slan doesn't give up that easily, he wants Duncan's head badly...

My Opinion
I really liked the show especially with the flashbacks to former times. But it was really sad when Tessa died.
