Plot:
A film noir classic featuring Edmond O'Brien as the doomed victem, who having been mysteriously poisoned, must retrace all his steps from the last twenty-four hours to find his killers - before time runs out! Told in flashback style, the suspense is palpable throughout and builds to a rousing climax, even though O'Brien's fate is essentially sealed from the outset.

  • Scene Access


My Thoughts:
This is a very good movie. I liked the storyline a lot. The entire cast was good. One thing did bother me a bit though. It was in the beginning of the movie. Multiple times within the first 15 minutes of the movie whenever he looked at another pretty girl you would hear the sound effect of a slide whistle. That took away from the movie for me. Thankfully it was only in the first 15 minutes of the movie. I just felt it wasn't needed... especially for the kind of story that this one is. I mean it would have been different if this was some sort of slapstick comedy or something. Just didn't work for this type of movie. But over-all this is one movie I would definitely recommend.


My Rating:

My Thoughts:
This release of Alien Nation is a 2 disc boxset along with the movie Enemy Mine. This is the first time in years since I seen this movie. I remembered enjoying it when I first watched it. But I have to admit... I forgot just how much I enjoyed this movie. It is a nice mixture of sci-fi, action and comedy all rolled together in a buddy cop movie. This DVD release has good quality... no complaints at all in that area. It has a nice small selection of extras... definitely better then some of the movies I have recently watched. But I would have liked to see a few more odds and ends thrown in. I would have loved to of seen a James Caan & Mandy Patinkin commentary... but it just wasn't meant to be.  But definitely a movie worth checking out if you never seen it.

My Thoughts:
I just finished the second season this evening. Series is running strong. This season they get away from the "freak of the week" type stories and we start to see continuing arcs. This season Whitley is gone... freeing Lana up for Clark to chase after. In the first several seasons Clark gets one new power per season. The first season he got his X-Ray Vision... this season he got his Heat Vision... which I must say was a fun episode when he got that one! Early on in this season Clark tells his best friend Pete his secret. We also see the first of the Red Kryptonite in this season. As well as the introduction to the caves where Clark reads about himself in the Native American drawings. And finally... This season ends in a heck of a cliffhanger. I had a lot of fun re-watching this season... and looking forward to starting the third season!
