Philly
(2001)

Casting was the problem
I did see a few episodes of Philly and you could see it right away what was the problem with the show. In shows like Law And Order S.V.U , you see a perfect cast. This shows lacks it totally. Actors like Tom Everett Scott are unconvincing and uninteresting. All in all its not surprising that this show got cancelled, the writing and the directing seemed ok but this show did not work at all. Want to watch a good Law show. The Practice is it.

First Monday
(2002)

Far below average
When i first heard about the show i was excited because a show that includes James Garner, Charles Durning and Joe Mantegna must be great. After watching severall shows i have now finally given up, this show clearly shows that good cast alone does not make a good show. Basically the show is all about Joe Mantegna who plays Justice Novelli is new in the supreme court and he always seems to have the decisive vote, IN EVERY SINGLE SHOW. His assistants who research his cases all compete on having their influence on the vote and it gets very irritating after a while. The biggest problem with the show is obviously the writing, is poor by any standards. This show has major problems if it is to survive beyond this season.

That '70s Show
(1998)

Brilliant
One of the best comedy shows out there, there really isn't anything negative about this show. The acting is great, the characters are very good and the actors work very well together. The clothing and the music is also excellent and well made.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
(2000)

A very bad show
This show was recommended to me by a few people who said this show was great. However after watching several shows i did not think much of it. The idea of the show is very good, but incredible as that may sound the acting is not that great. I have always thought William Peterson was a fairly good actor but he is very bad in this show, and why?? He overplays is character in every show, always there with the right advise to people around him, and he solves every case with ease. Is co-actor are overactors to , the only exception being Paul Guilfoyle who is excellent in his role, actually for some strange reason he does not feature much in the show. Shows like Law and Order are far much better than this.

Party of Five
(1994)

Very Overrated Show
It amazes me that this show was on the air for 7 Season. The fans of this show keep talking about that this show is like real life, but its not. First of all the characters are overly dramatic, all they do is cry and moan. Neve Campbell is the only talent in this show but her character is not very interesting but then again none of the characters are. Matthew Fox will probably never get another t.v. role except on Guiding Light or Dawson´s Creek who is fast becoming another Party of Five show.

The District
(2000)

Very Promising
The District aired for the first time in Iceland tonight and i have to say that i was highly impressed with the show. Craig T Nelson is excellent in his role and hopefully this show will get better and better. Law and Order is on the top of my list for police shows but this show is very promising. Keep up the good work.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
(1999)

Difficult Film For George Lucas
Much was expected of this movie when it came out and when that happens, most people will be disapointed. As for this film it was very difficult to make for Lucas in my opinion. I tought it was ok when i first saw it but not GREAT. However as i have seen it severall times since then it has become pretty good. All sounds , visual effects and music are great as expected but that alone isn´t enough is it ? ? ? ?

Liam Neeson plays his part very well indeed as does Jake Lloyd as Anakin Skywalker and the Pod race is the highlight of the movie in my opinion. Natalie Portman is great as Queen Amidala cos she has the charm that is needed. Pernila August, Ian McDirmaid also have good roles and come out well in this movie.

The most sad thing about this move is the arrival of JAR JAR BINKS who tends to get on my nerves from time to time, altough he was a bit better the second time i saw this movie. The problem is that he propably plays the biggest role in this movie. Ewan McGregor gets very little to do as Obi Wan but that will change when The Attack Of The Clones will come out.

MY RATING - Not great but ok and well worth seeing

6 1/2 OUT of 10

Convoy
(1978)

Still Very Good
When i was a little kid this was my favourite movie, i just loved it , the trucks and the truckers were fantastic as wherer the car scenes.

I was in London at the end of september 2001 and this movie was on Channel 4. I had not seen this film for such a long time and i tought that there was no way that i could like this movie 15 years later, but to my surprise it had lost little of the charm it had.

MY RATING. Nothing bad about this film, just enjoy the ride.

8 / 10

The Contender
(2000)

A Movie that starts off very well........
When i saw the great actors who are in this movie, i expected much of it , and it started very well indeed. Jeff Bridges,Joan Allen,Gary Oldman, Sam Elliott and William Peterson are all great in their roles, the first 30 minutes the movie promises something special but an hour later that is ruined by a typical Hollywood ending. How they let this possible great movie be ruined like they did is beyond me.

Perfect Strangers
(1986)

One Of The Best T.V. show ever
When growing up in the 80s this was one of my true favourite shows along with ALF. The combination of Mark-Linn Baker and Bronson Pinchot as the two cousins Larry And Balki is 10 out of 10. You will laugh show after show. Unfortunetly i didn´t see this show the last three years of it as Channel 2 in Iceland stopped broadcasting them in 1991. Hopefully Perfect Strangers will someday come out on VHS like Friends and Cheers have. Wonderful show.
