One minute they are pushing the demand of sci-fi for the fans, then they cut them down with unfair criticism. An example of this is Alien Vs Predator, which, in my opinion, deserves more than the one star your critic gave it. It is hard enough to make a film about something that is total fantasy but AVP pulled it off. ——————————————————————————————————1/6—— Sport headlines 400 WINTER SUN - DUBAI p185 W EndA-G W EndH-N On Stage Lifestyle

As for the lowered certificate, remember the market for adult showings has fallen dramatically since the '80s. I personally felt I won watching this film.

I came across her for the first time because of a faulty TV. I couldn't turn it over, so I watched Bangkok Hilton. The girl, who turned out to be Kidman, was amazing. I went to the library the following morning to try to find out any other films she'd made and ended up buying Dead Calm. ——————————————————————————————————3/6—— Latest movie reviews 313 IS LOVE IN THE AIR FOR YOU? p348 W EndA-G W EndH-N On Stage Lifestyle

She absorbs you into every part she takes on. May I also say Billy Zane, who played opposite her in Dead Calm, is the most underrated actor. I don't believe anyone else could have played that role as he did.
