Little Buddha
(1993)

Not a Keanu Fan? This will surprise you . . .
An unexpected delight! Although I was impressed by The Matrix's special effects for its time, I have never really been much more impressed by Keanu Reeves' films. However, without a hint of his "excellent adventure" personae, Keanu plays Prince Siddhartha beautifully and appropriately. Chris Isaak and Bridget Fonda do a fine job, and the cinematography is captivating!! I was consistently delighted with the storyline - and was even successfully held in suspense! I was truly entertained and taken in by this wonderful film. It is a definite MUST RENT, and is really too bad it wasn't terribly successful at it's release. (I'd never even heard of it!) Watch it and post your comments!

Night Visions
(2001)

Very Entertaining, Excellent Casting.
I caught a Sci-Fi Channel marathon of this series, and was very pleasantly surprised. If you are a fan of The Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Night Gallery, Amazing Stories, Tales from the Crypt, and the like... this is a must see. With many of these types of compact suspense series, it's often hit or miss with each story - sometimes highly satisfying, sometimes disappointing. But, I found each episode in this series extremely entertaining, and well acted. It's no wonder with the consistent caliber of cast, including: Bill Pullman, Brian Dennehy, Bridget Fonda, Aidan Quinn, Natasha Lyonne, Lou Diamond Phillips, Chad Lowe, Jerry O'Connell, Sherilyn Fenn, Randy Quaid, Jay Mohr, Jamie Kennedy, Cary Elwes, Luke Perry, Pam Grier, Jack Palance, Stephen Baldwin, and MORE. The only unappealing portion of the show is Henry Rollins' hosting. Even as a fan of Henry, I found him to be ineffectively uptight and out of place in this role. There are 26 thirty minute episodes, each edition featuring two episodes. It's a shame this didn't last - I think it could have had a pretty good life!
