Supergirl Review


Terrible
So let me see if I get this straight: Dopey Kara (Helen Slater) is sitting around on a fragment of the former planet Krypton when she stupidly tears a hole in the protective bubble that keeps the city safe from the external world.

The Three Musketeers (1973) Review


Very Good
I saw the word "whimsical" used in one product description of this installment of The Three Musketeers, a faithful adaptation of the classic novel, and no word could better describe the film. It's a combination of belly laughs via non-stop sight gags, endless swashbuckling, and only a dab of plot, all of which serve to make this an engaging event movie that takes place in France instead of in space. Packed with classic actors (including Charlton Heston, Christopher Lee, and Raquel Welch), this is a fun, nearly farcical adventure that's definitely worth a look.
