One to skip

I watched the Bedford Incident last night. This is for hard-core Cold War junkies only and even then I recommend you watch the first 15 minutes and skip to the last two scenes, as the only the ending is worth your time. The plot involves an overzealous destroyer captain trying to force a Soviet submarine to surface. Of course, his maniacal management drives his poor crew crazy. A reporter and a German ex- U-boat commander brought along as a consultant try to convince the Captain to be less crazy, but to no avail. A good ending, but not worth sitting through the tedious plot. For your Cold War movie goodness, watch these movies instead.

Have a look at this list (with trailers when available) of upcoming fall/Christmas movies. Some look OK, but I am quite surprised they went back for Aliens Vs. Predator, the first one sucking like it did.

The R rated AVP2 trailer actually does not suck. Let's hope they've left a little somethin' somethin' for the rest of the flick.

I am of two minds.

On the negative side: This statement
Aliens vs Predator: Requiem is directed by brothers Colin Strause and Greg Strause, two highly experienced visual effects guys and first time directors.

On the plus side, it looks crazy violent and it has Michelle Dessler, who can always bring it.

Here is the trailer.
