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. Whoops, the city's power source -- a little ball that fits in your hand which Kara is playing with (!!!) -- gets sucked out the hole, dooming the city and all its residents to certain death. Then, as her dad (Peter O'Toole!) sentences himself to eternity in the Phantom Zone (where Zod and his crew were sent), Kara mopes around and sits on a chair... which turns out to be an escape pod straight to earth!

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.
