What's Hot Today

Benjamin Bratt has done it again...

I loved this movie. I have always been a fan of Benjamin Bratt and seeing him in something close to the E-Ring does my heart good. I was so sorry when they took that show off the tube,but look at him now. And the rest of the crew who I love but can never remember their names especially the african american guy from my other favorite show Homicide: Life on the street....all are good. Its also nice to see the female lead from Scrubs do something serious for a change....and she is good too. The oriental actor from Lost is great as well and Viola Davis from the cancelled show Will Traveler is also good.

The Andromeda Strain Review, by Barry Garron of The Hollywood Reporter

Like Halley's Comet, "The Andromeda Strain," Michael Crichton's story of a virulent microorganism from outer space, is coming around again. It's previous appearance, as a theatrical directed by Robert Wise, occurred 37 years ago, so it was probably due for a return visit. In some ways, you'd hardly recognize the old pathogen now. It has a completely different origin, a revised and more diverse team of scientists fighting it and a far more imaginative solution for defeating it. Plus the scientific equipment in the secret underground lab is wa-a-a-ay cooler. A&E's four-hour mini also contains a strong environmental message which is, in itself, a little ironic considering that Crichton, who was not associated with this project, spoke with skepticism about global warming before a congressional hearing in 2005. The heart of the story remains the same as it was in the 1969 novel, and scribe Robert Schenkkan wastes no time getting to it. A satellite crashes into the desert just outside of a small Utah town. Whatever was in it kills everyone almost instantly or drives them murderously insane. A team of scientists (Benjamin Bratt, Christa Miller, Viola Davis, Ricky Schroder and Daniel Dae Kim) is quickly assembled to save the world.
