Elizabeth, a review by goodguy


   Elizabeth (UK 1998)
Written by: Michael Hirst
Directed by: Shekhar Kapur
Starring: Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, Christopher Eccleston, Joseph Fiennes, Richard Attenborough
DVD: R2-DE Universal (2007)

My rating:

IMDb Summary: A film of the early years of the reign of Elizabeth I of England and her difficult task of learning what is necessary to be a monarch.

I don't know and don't care much about Bollywood movies, but I often enjoy a certain eclecticism, a merging of styles. Infusing an Elizabethan history drama and its medieval locations with Indian flair surely makes for one gorgeous looking movie. The plot is intriguing without being too much distracted by historical accuracy. At the center of it is a bravura performance by Cate Blanchett, who makes Elisabeth's transformation interesting and believable. Great stuff.

My Thoughts:
I first saw this movie (I believe) on cable... and I just didn't like it at all at the time. I mean I really had a hatred for this one. But many people had told me to give it another chance. So when a friend offered to give me this DVD I took her up on it. After watching it today I do feel I was hard on it the last time I watched it. While I still don't think this one is a very good movie. It is entertaining... and worth the time put in to watch it. Though for the most part I still don't like a lot of the type of humor they use in this one. While I can see watching it again... it is one of those that I don't watch all that often.

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.
