                                                  I thought it was a good movie, Celti, but it did leave me with a couple of questions.  It also begs for a sequal.  I look forward to what you think of it.

         That was a great idea CW, checking out the website.  
          Did you notice the new movie about crop circles?  It's called
         'Silent Warnings'.  Wow,  a good sci-fi movie with Billy Zane  wub.gif

                                                  Yeay, KC, 'Silent Warnings' looks like a takeoff of 'Signs', hopefully it will have a better storyline to it.  unsure.gif  Looking forward to seeing it either way, though. smile.gif

Also happened to notice that they have a 'Battlestar Galactica' mini-series slated for late this year, wonder what that will be like.  ohmy.gif  ohmy.gif

            Hey, MM,  I have a feeling 'SW' might be like 'Signs' too,
              but with BZ in it,  I don't think I'll be comparing.  biggrin.gif

                                                  Old Billy boy looked awfully uncomfortable in 'Silent Warnings', the movie was really terrible.  tongue.gif

There was one bright spot though, the Sci-Fi channel showed promo's of a new series called the Deathlands. I was a huge fan of the books written by James Axler, a couple years ago, and am looking forward to seeing the series on television. The books had an episodic, thrilling adventure theme to them with great character development and an interesting and captivating story line. The preview looked promising, I'm hoping it can make the grade.

        CW,  can you tell who I was thinking about today?  wub.gif
           I like that the site had lots of pics of him from "Cleopatra",
         he looked so good in that movie.    smile.gif

            But it was a shame he chose to be in 'Silent Warnings' like
          you said MM,  it was awful.  tongue.gif

              I did catch a glimpse of 'Deathlands', but I'd never heard of
          if before.  It's amazing how much new stuff the SCI-FI channel
            has been showing.   smile.gif

                                                  KC,

  Here's a link to the website devoted to the books. CLICK HERE  It will help give you an idea what its all about. I also have to mention that it isn't a TV series as I first thought, it's just a movie. tongue.gif Darn tongue.gif

Edit: Opps, fixed the link, sorry. tongue.gif

        Thanks MM,  so they're going to put everything into a 2 hour movie?
