The latest film is extremely noisy, features some fine stunt driving, particularly in its opening sequence, but it's dramatically a bit of a dribbler. I'm still trying to figure out the relationship between the opening of the film and the ending.
The Alaskan Huskies of Eight Below are both better-looking and better performers than their human counterparts, and their vigilant scenes of solo survival on an Antarctic outpost make for the highlight of this otherwise predictable rescue mission.
Unfortunately when the sales associate entered my shipping address, she entered the wrong zip code. I had to call the postal service several times. It eventually arrived, but instead of 7-10 days, it was more like 3-4 weeks. Nevertheless I am very happy with the DVD. I was unable to locate this locally.
When I purchased this portable air conditioner I did not realize it was only for window mounting. And it is made to be fitted into a window that opens by sliding up and down not side to side. You need a drill to drill holes into the window frame to mount it. I don't have a drill or proper window to mount it so Incan't use it. I turned it on for the night sitting on top of my dresser in front of an open window and it did cool my room down and the humming noise I find soothing.
With audiences jaded by the usual sex and splatter, do the filmmakers have no qualms about juicing up proceedings with edgy but troubling material which clearly needs more conscientious handling? Apparently not.
