Roswell: The Miracle

Airdate: 12-18-00

Highpoints: Isabel the Christmas Nazi. Max and Liz bond. Michael and Maria finally hit it off.
Lowpoints: The sick kid is Brodie's. The dead stalker.

You know it's going to be good when the trailer at the WB website makes the hair on your arms stand up.

The gang is in the middle of the Christmas season. Isabel takes Christmas very seriously. So seriously in fact that I thought for a minute that it wasn't actually Isabel and that her evil twin had returned. But man, it was funny. The others are a little more Bah-Humbug than her. Micheal is trying to pick a good gift for Maria and decides on what every girlfriend wants - a new bumper for her car. Not! Max is just his usual brooding self and the Valenti's, plus Tess, are busy buying frozen turkey dinners. Sounds like a quirky little holiday special until... Max and Mike watch a man push his daughter out of the path of a speeding car and die in the process.

The next thing you know the dead guy is stalking Max. I had a problem with this because it was just too Sixth Sense. I kept expecting Max to blubber "I see dead people." I think his conscience alone could have spawned the storyline. They didn't need a dead stalker.

Anyway, racked with guilt over the fact that he could have used his power to save the guy, Max decides he needs to save someone - anyone. Maria discovers that Brodie has a daughter who is dying of cancer. A little too perfect huh? I mean we never heard squat about Brodie's family before, let alone that he has a daughter. And where has this little kid been while Daddy is off being posessed by aliens?

Anyway, Micheal is - as always - against the idea. Still, he is the one to go with Max to Phoenix where Sydney (Brodie's daughter) is in the hospital. Max's not only saves Sydney but all the other kids in her room too - nearly killing himself in the process.It was amazing.

But all is well that ends well and this one ended very well. Micheal and Maria exchange gifts and he scores (Thanks to Isabel buying him a back-up gift). Max attends church service with Liz and the others. A very warm and fuzzy episode for all.

Foreshadowing: Liz and Max's final hand-holding scene is the beginning of another beginning.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
