MOVIE REVIEW: “Day of the Dolphin” (1973)

What a strange, laconic film this is! Seriously: It starts out relaxed, doesn’t move very far, and takes its own sweet time getting there. Also, it picks an odd place to end, proving Wells’ old saw about the difference between tragedy and triumph being where you decide to stop telling the story.

Stargate: SG1 Season 1 Review

What with the “Stargate” franchise being dead for the foreseeable future, and since my older kids kinda’ like it, It thought now was as good a time as any to review the series. I’d always wanted to do it in chronological order, but I never have. Also, there are a metric ton of SG1 episodes I’ve never seen, and a lot of SGA eps as well. I really didn’t start watching until it was on Syfy (Then called “Skiffy”), and while they endlessly repeated the earlier eps, I never made an effort to catch up.

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Undefeated” (1969)

This is not a great film. It’s also not science fiction. Not even remotely. Why am I reviewing it? Well, primarily it’s because Joss Whedon once said that “Firefly” was largely based on (A) the book “The Killer Angels” by Michael Shaara, and (B) this movie. So while it’s not SF in and of itself, it had some unexpected impact on SF, and is worthy of a look-see just out of curiosity.
