OK, posting before LJ goes down again...
DreadCentral.com has a nice review of Joe Flanigan's movie Ferocious Planet here:
"Most genre fans have a love/hate relationship with SyFy Channel films, I suspect. While most of us enjoy ninety-minutes of watching a bear-shark-a-cuda chase down unsuspecting victims on a Friday or Saturday Night, there’s no denying a good portion of SyFy original programming simply isn’t worth being subjected to. In fact, some of it is downright unwatchable. Most of the fare coming off like Girls Gone Wild videos with thin genre plot lines to justify being on the network.
But, every once in a while a SyFy Original comes along that’s actually well written, well crafted, and it gives you hope that, perhaps, more such films will follow, which is why we keep watching.
Ferocious Planet is one of those films."
"Overseeing security during the demonstration is Colonel Sam Synn (played by Joe Flannigan of SyFy’s Stargate: Atlantis and Warehouse 13). Synn’s a burned out soldier with a checkered past and all he wants to do is get through this babysitting gig so he can get busy with retirement and spend the rest of his days on his boat. "
Can't wait till Saturday!
