Terrific flick! Some have complained about the dialog, saying there's too much wisecracking. I, for one, loved it. It was a breath of fresh air to hear clever, rapid fire dialog, delivered expertly and in just the right tone, cynical, without being melancholy.

In this respect it reminded me of Howard Hawks' classic 'The Thing from Another World', also known for it's rapid, overlapping dialog. Great stuff.

I think it's difficult for modern (and young) audiences to realize that most people used to converse this way, without using the F word or other profanities every other word. This was made at a time when innuendo and wit were as prevalent as the F word is today. A different time. A different world.

Great cuts at 00:05 and 02:46.

Great translator. She's doing it 'on the fly'. She has the student's questions but not his answers, which are lengthy and sometimes technical. Well done!

Thanks for the upload, but why disable embedding? Why? Unless you are Lee or Nancy, it makes no sense. And even then, makes no sense. Why restrict something that you don't own the rights to? Please reconsider making it freely available. If you allow embedding it doesn't diminish your hit count, if you're worried about that.

This great song used to be a staple on Art Bell. Great memories.

Oh, I remember these! Mid 90s. A-Team meets Bay Watch. Guns, Beaches, Babes, and Explosions and bad jokes. Oh, and nobody ever dies. Not even the bad guys. Just like Scooby Doo in LIVE action. Totally unrealistic, but totally fun.

Art Bell's new radio show has a news segment Dark Matter News that reminds me so much of these 'In the News' segments that I grew up on. Great stuff.
