Finished First Season of The West Wing

Everything I’ve been told, by Celeste Jalbert, Jeff Staples, Darren Justus, and anyone else. The West Wing is really a superb show that everyone needs to watch, regardless of your political views. I just finished season one and can’t wait to start season two.

I was watching an episode a view days back and Quinn McGinnis comes over and watches for a few minutes states that he can’t believe he heard something intelligent on TV.

The Village

Wow. Just finished watching The Village. What an incredible movie. If you have not seen it, you must go see it now. Almost makes me want to watch it again…right now!

Fahrenheit 9/11

Fahrenheit 9/11

I finally was able to see Fahrenheit 9/11 today. I thought it was an interesting movie (and I say “movie”, not “documentary”). Oxford English Dictionary defines a documentry as “4. Factual, realistic; applied esp. to a film or literary work, etc., based on real events or circumstances, and intended primarily for instruction or record purposes.” Fahrenheit 9/11 definatly does not fall under that definition. However, it did provoke some interesting ideas.

Dave Kopel, from the Independence Institute, has published the Fifty-nine Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11. He explains each deceit in detail on his website: http://www.davekopel.com/Terror/Fiftysix-Deceits-in-Fahrenheit-911.htm. Moore as has a rebutal to such documents on his website: http://www.michaelmoore.com/warroom/f911notes/

There is also a counter movie called FahrenHYPE 9/11 that I have in my Netflix queue.

However, Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, or anything in between. You need to see this movie. Despite his method, and my distain for his movie, it still manages to make a few good points that need to be looked at.

The finale of all season finales!

Of all the finales I watched, I would have to say the Star Trek: Enterprise Finale was the best. The official Star Trek synopsis is:

Aboard Degra’s ship, Archer, Reed and Hoshi work with the Arboreals and Humanoids to chase the Reptilians and stop the Xindi Weapon from decimating Earth. Archer’s plan is to board the weapon and try to overload the power systems, but he’ll need the help of an ailing Hoshi to read the weapon schematics.

Back in the Delphic Expanse, T’Pol leads the NX-01 in an attempt to obliterate Sphere 41 in hopes of disabling the entire network of Spheres. But the crew’s time is limited, as that region of space has a degenerative effect on their bodies, and the furious Sphere-Builders try to tear Enterprise apart.

What they don’t say what happens in the last 15/20 minutes. Archer, with some help from the Andorians (one of them played by Star Trek veteran Jeffery Combs) suceeds in destroying the Xindi Weapon. However, Archer is killed in the blast. It seems as if Paramount has rewritten the rules for what people are okay and not okay to kill off. Anyways, T’Pol and Trip just barely destroy Sphere 41, and not before the Sphere-Builders manage to get on board the ship and cause some chaos.

In recap, Xindi Weapon: Destroyed; Archer: Dead; Sphere’s: Destroyed. The only thing left is to go home. So the NX-01 heads to Sector 001, Earth, Sol System. They arrive and find things are not the way they left them. Earth doesn’t respond to any of their hails. Reed and Mayweather head down in a shuttle pod and they’re attacked by what looked like….P51 Mustang. Yes, that’s right. World War II propeller planes. Of course Paramount isn’t stupid, so what’s become of Archer. He just suffered some burns and is resting in a M*A*S*H unit…a Nazi M*A*S*H unit!! So now I’m like, “Alright, they went back in time or something when they went through the vortex.” Well, I don’t think aliens were fighting hand and hand with the Nazi’s.

So yea…Star Trek: Enterprise definatly wins two prizes. One for Best Season Finale and one for Best Television Comeback. Go Enterprise; whooot, whooot!

The search continues

After a few days of contemplating, I think I’ve got a new prom list that will
work. If not…well, I’m really hoping this will work. I finally watched Kill Bill, Vol. 1. I really can’t
wait to see Kill Bill, Vol. 2
now. It was incredibly exsesivly violent with lots of blood spewing all over the
place, but there was so much of it and it was done in such an incredibly
unrealistic manner that I hardly consider it worth debating. I also watched Matchstick Men, which also also
increadibly excellent, especially Nicholas Cage’s twitching.
