Time Table, a review by Antares


Time Table (1956) 84/100 - It's a shame that this wasn't made by a bigger studio like Warners or Columbia, two studios famous for crime dramas. A few more bucks thrown into the budget and we'd probably be talking about this film in the same breath as Double Indemnity, The Asphalt Jungle or Out of the Past. For a low budget indie, this is a well made noir that moves as fast as the train that the crime takes place on. No unnecessary exposition, just taut action and dialog which sets the mood perfectly. But because it was probably made on a shoestring budget and time schedule, certain scenes seem a bit forced or slightly overblown. A little more money and time probably would have cleared up this small, yet not too disheartening aspect of the film. One funny thing though, when the copter pilot is introduced, I felt a sense of hearing that voice before. Sure enough, when the film ended, I jumped on to IMDB and lo and behold, it was the voice of Fred Flintstone, actor Alan Reed.

What the color coding means...

Teal = Masterpiece
Dark Green = Classic or someday will be
Lime Green = A good, entertaining film
Orange = Average
Red = Cinemuck
Brown = The color of crap, which this film is

The Triangle, a review by addicted2dvd



The Triangle
From the director of 'X-Men' and a producer of 'Independence Day', comes a sci-fi event so big, it's a phenomenon. Experience the thrills and heart-pounding suspense of the greatest legend of our time as a team of specialists races to solve the mystery of why an alarming number of cargo ships are disappearing into the Bermuda Triangle. But as every clue only deepens the mystery, the truth they uncover is far more bizarre than the myths used to cover it up.

My Thoughts:
This was a decent miniseries... enjoyable even... but I still felt unsatisfied when it was over. I think I was just expecting more from it. Not because this one was recommended highly to me... or because I read rave reviews... I just for some reason thought it would be better going in. I think... at least in my opinion... they went with an easy out at the end... but then added a bit of a twist to that easy out. Which was ok... but I just felt like there should have been more to it. Don't get me wrong... I am in no way sorry I got it... was still enjoyable.

Guest Stars:

My Thoughts:
Enjoyed this episode as well. Fred figures out how to get Angel to see what she sees... and between the 2 of them the get the rest of the group to see it too. But now they are all on the run. As I know many of you here like Firefly... Jasmine is played by the actress that plays Zoe. But she will only be on the series for 2 more episodes now.

My Rating:
