Heroes - The Complete First Season “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World”. These words became a household phrase last fall for television fans everywhere as the phenomenon that is NBC's “Heroes”, captured audiences around the nation. The series brings drama, action, visual effects, and intricate plot and character twists to the small screen. “Heroes”, a mixture of X-Men and Spider-Man, takes the idea of superheroes, transforms them into everyday people endowed with special abilities and places them around the world, unaware of their destiny. Some of them understand and accept their abilities, others are frightened of not being normal and still others have no idea how special they really are. No matter how they feel about their supernatural gifts, they all have something in common: all have become targets. They are targets for researchers, for politicians, for secret societies, and from persons within their evolved species. The first season of “Heroes” comprises of 23 episodes. As this series is structured upon ...

Dante's Peak Before global warming and forces of nature like hurricane Katrina claimed the attention of the American public as the most threatening possibilites for danger in the environment, volcanoes held that dubious honor. The eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980 and Mount Pinatubo the following year caused mass hysteria in several sectors. For a time, even earthquakes took a backseat to volcanoes. Thankfully, Hollywood waited until 1997 to unleash a big budget volcano disaster movie that would have met Irwin Allen’s yardstick for success. Of course, that yardstick measures fear and paranoia induced in audiences around the globe. Unfortunately, Hollywood chose that year to unleash two movies, not just one. The second movie, simply titled “Volcano” starred Tommy Lee Jones and came out after “Dante’s Peak,” a self-determined disaster regarding the box office. America had decided it had had enough of exploding volcanoes by that time. “Dante’s Peak” is a decent film. It meets ...

Billy Madison Billy Madison (Adam Sandler) is the son of Brian Madison (Darren McGavin), the rich magnate behind the Madison hotel chain. Faced with his imminent retirement, the elder Madison is pressed to make a decision about who will take over the company when he retires: one of his executives, Eric Gordon (Bradley Whitford) or his immature layabout son, Billy. The twenty-something Billy lives a life of drunken leisure at the Madison estate, so his father becomes wary of leaving the corporation in his hands, especially since Billy only made it through elementary school, high school and college because his father paid off the teachers. Determined to prove himself to his father and keep the company in the family, Billy makes a deal with his father: he’ll take a crash course in all twelve grades, learning each grade in two weeks and passing an exam for each. If Billy graduates all grades successfully, his father ...

300 It’s the year 480 B.C. The Persian empire has spread throughout Asia and parts of Greece, gobbling up territory after territory in a quest for imperial domination. King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) sends a messenger and escort to King Leonidas of Sparta (Gerard Butler), requesting that he make a token gesture that he will yield to the empire’s mighty power and allow Sparta to become part of the empire and relinquish his sovereignty. Leonidas responds by slaughtering the messenger and his retinue and prepares for war. Unfortunately, the important Carneian Festival is about to begin and the high-priests (called Ephors) that the Spartans look to for guidance will not condone the use of the military on a warlike action. Leonidas, finding a way to circumvent their instructions gathers an army of 300, made up entirely of his personal royal guards to venture to the coastline and there hold off the Persian army at Thermopylae ...

Mummy, The (1999) Brendan Fraser’s " Mummy" franchise so far consists of two feature films and one spin-off that is a kind of prequel. A third movie in the franchise is slated for release in 2008. Fans of the series can’t wait. Although the movie was going to be a quiet release and not much was expected, it caught on with audiences was looking for something to fill the vacancy left by the Indiana Jones movies. Brendan Fraser’s portrayal of American adventurer Rick O’Connell, although dwarfed intellectually by the good Doctor Jones, was nonetheless a two-fisted hero of the first water. O’Connell is the kind of hero Saturday matinees and serials made their mainstay back in the 1940s and 1950s. He is quick with his fists and guns, and quicker still with a quip or a cutting remark. In part, the film written and directed by Stephen Sommers is derived from two older movies, the original ...
