My Thoughts:

Very intriguing and fascinating movie even though at times I was confused as to what was going on.  :headscratch: It was like playing connect the dots... only the dots keep moving.

The message was clear... big business, more directly OIL business, dictates much of what happens in the world. Corruption, terrorism, political unrest, the removing of obstacles with extreme prejudice... all in a days work for the powers that be who jockey for control of the world's most valuable natural resource. Also, this movie does little to endear the viewer to the Arab oil barons whose obscene wealth is prominently on display.
Clooney was good, Damon was good, Jeffrey Wright was great! Also I've never seen Tim Blake Nelson in a suit before and it was quite a shock to the system.  :o

Great movie if not a bit confusing. Likely no more confusing than the real life double dealings employed by the oil companies.

My Thoughts:
Very watchable movie. Nothing special but I was not entertained throughout. This movie features a few lesbian, straight and gay relationships. All were okay, but the only one that I thought had real chemistry didn't seem to have worked out.

Tom's Buffy and Angel Marathon, a review by Tom


13. The I in Team (2000-02-08)
Writer: David Fury (Writer)
Director: James A. Contner
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Seth Green (Oz), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Marc Blucas (Riley Finn), James Marsters (Spike), Amber Benson (Tara), George Hertzberg (Adam), Leonard Roberts (Forrest Gates), Bailey Chase (Graham Miller), Jack Stehlin (Dr. Angleman), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Lindsay Crouse (Maggie Walsh), Neil Daly (Mason)

It is fun how Buffy gets to see the Initiative. Otherwise an average episode.

Too much focus on Riley to be enjoyable.

15. This Year's Girl (2000-02-22)
Writer: Douglas Petrie (Writer)
Director: Michael Gershman
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Seth Green (Oz), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Kristine Sutherland (Joyce Summers), Amber Benson (Tara), Leonard Roberts (Forrest Gates), Bailey Chase (Graham Miller), Chet Grissom (Detective), Alastair Duncan (Collins), Harry Groener (Mayor Richard Wilkins), Eliza Dushku (Faith), Jeff Ricketts (Weatherby), Kevin Owers (Smith), Mark Gantt (Demon), Kimberly McRae (Visitor), Sara Van Horn (Older Nurse), Brian Hawley (Orderly), Jack Esformes (Doctor)

The start of a great two-parter, though this first half is not that great as there is so little Faith and too much Riley.

16. Who Are You? (2000-02-29)
Writer: Joss Whedon (Writer)
Director: Joss Whedon
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Seth Green (Oz), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Marc Blucas (Riley Finn), James Marsters (Spike), Kristine Sutherland (Joyce Summers), Amber Benson (Tara), Leonard Roberts (Forrest Gates), George Hertzberg (Adam), Chet Grissom (Detective), Alastair Duncan (Collins), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Eliza Dushku (Buffy), Rick Stear (Boone), Jeff Ricketts (Weatherby), Kevin Owers (Smith), Amy Powell (Reporter), Rick Scarry (Sergeant), Jennifer S. Albright (Date)

Faith's role is now much bigger and it is fun how Buffy and Faith are switching bodies.

17. Superstar (2000-04-04)
Writer: Jane Espenson (Writer)
Director: David Grossman
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Seth Green (Oz), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Marc Blucas (Riley Finn), James Marsters (Spike), Danny Strong (Jonathan Levinson), Amber Benson (Tara), Bailey Chase (Graham Miller), Robert Patrick Benedict (Jape), John Saint Ryan (Col. George Haviland), George Hertzberg (Adam), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Erica Luttrell (Karen), Adam Clark (Cop), Chanie Costello (Inga), Julie Costello (Ilsa)

I always found this episode fun. An alternate reality where Jonathan is the center of everything. But even though it is a nice idea, it was dragged out too long without any additional fun ideas.
