The "Ahab" of the proceedings is Archangel, who has embarked upon an obsessive mission to destroy the immortal mutant Apocalypse. Rogue joins Archangel in his quest, while the other X-Men pursue an alternate strategy with the same goal. Alas, Archangel's stubborn single-mindedness could end up destroying everyone, hero and villain alike. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Savage Land, Strange Heart, Part One In the first half of the two-part X-Men adventure "Savage Land, Strange Heart," we are introduced to the half-human, half-pterodactyl Sauron. Under the spell of high priestess Zaladane, Sauron kidnaps Storm and bundles her off to Savage Land. Without the other X-Men to control her, Storm prepares to unleash the full fury of her energy to prevent Zaladane from sapping her life forces. Meanwhile, Storm's colleagues have plenty of trouble on their own -- namely, a fearsome dinosaur-like creature called The Garokk. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Savage Land, Strange Heart, Part Two In the second half of the two-part X-Men adventure "Savage Land, Strange Heart," Storm has unleashed the full force of her inner powers -- and she truly enjoys the rush! But there are consequences to her euphoria: Her unbridled strength has revitalized the deadly "stone spirit" Garokk. Now he threatens to increase his power by fusing with the volcanic forces of Savage Island. The X-Men, assisted by the Fall People, must put an end to Garokk's reign of terror. But this means that they must also do battle against their former comrade Storm, thereby setting the stage for one of the series' customary Crises of Loyalty. "Savage Land, Strange Heart" was originally broadcast during X-Men's 1994-95 season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Dark Phoenix "Dark Phoenix" was an appropriate title for the third chapter of X-Men's "Dark Phoenix" saga. The titular Phoenix has threatened to destroy the X-Men if they force him to give up possession of Jean Grey. He forces Jean to fly to the D'har Star System for the purpose of regenerating her strength. But the journey ends disastrously when an out-of-control Jean destroys the entire system. Reluctantly, the X-Men align themselves with Shi'ar empress Lilandre, who has declared that, in her present state, Jean must be liquidated for the good of the Universe. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Cold Comfort This episode marked the return of former X-Man Bobby Drake, a.k.a. the freeze-inducing Iceman (who'd previously popped up as a regular on another Marvel cartoon series, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. The downside is that Iceman has apparently gone bad, breaking into a secret government installation and wreaking all sorts of havoc. Rescued from the authorities, he is brought to Professor X to explain himself -- but only the Beast, a.k.a. Dr. McCoy, knows the real motivation for his colleague's alleged crime. "Cold Comfort" was originally broadcast during X-Men's 1994-95 season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Weapon X, Lies and Videotape This final episode of X-Men's 1994-95 season begins as Wolverine is mysteriously unhinged by the information imparted in a postcard. Beast wants to know why his friend has gone off the deep end, so he takes Wolverine to the Weapon X lab where he was first transformed into a mutant. Also converging on the lab are Sabretooth, Maverick and Silver Fox, who likewise had been test subjects

The crew member's death appears to be related to his recent visit to a nearby planet, and, accompanied by Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy, Kirk beams to the world's surface to investigate. There, the trio of Enterprise officers unexpectedly find a world inhabited by ancient, Earth-based symbols of evil, including a group of witches who proclaim the Enterprise's imminent doom. Further exploration proves these supernatural creatures are actually the creations of a pair of powerful aliens, who plan to keep the starship and its crew hostage, forcing Kirk and the others to seek a method of escape. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide Star Trek: Wolf in the Fold After suffering a minor head injury, the Enterprise's chief engineer, Scotty, is ordered by Dr. McCoy to take a brief leave -- as part of his recovery process, of course -- in this episode of the popular sci-fi television series. Reluctantly, Scotty puts aside his workaholic tendencies and joins the doctor and Captain Kirk in traveling to a planet that bears a strong resemblance to 19th-century London. At first quaint, the parallels to Earth culture become frightening when the society proves to have its own variation on Jack the Ripper, and Scotty is accused of the crimes. The other officers attempt to defend their friend against the charges, but mounting evidence refutes their arguments for innocence. Even worse, Scotty not only lacks an alibi, but has begun suffering from blackouts which leave him with no memory of his activities during the times of the murders. The script for Wolf in the Fold was written by Robert Bloch, best known for the novel that inspired Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide Star Trek: Obsession When Captain Kirk encounters an old nemesis, his personal need to enact revenge threatens not only his own life but the safety of the Enterprise in this episode of the landmark 1960s science-fiction series. When several Enterprise crew members exploring the surface of a planet are attacked by a deadly alien resembling a gaseous cloud, resulting in a number of deaths, Kirk recognizes the extraterrestrial as an enemy from his past. Tormented by the fact that he had failed to destroy the alien during their last encounter, when it had killed a number of his fellow crew members, Kirk becomes increasingly obsessed with the creature's destruction. Ignoring the advice of his fellow officers, a determined Kirk orders the Enterprise to pursue the cloud, hoping to force an ultimate confrontation in which he can finally emerge victorious. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide Star Trek: Journey to Babel The Enterprise plays host to a number of interplanetary diplomats in preparation for a major galactic meeting in Star Trek 44: Journey to Babel, an episode from the second season of the well-known science fiction series. Amongst the guests are Sarek, the
Includes - Star Trek: The Man Trap (1966) Joan of Arcadia: Pilot (2003) The 4400: Pilot (2004) Medium: Pilot (2005) Star Trek: The Man Trap The Starship Enterprise makes a routine call at the arid, uninhabited planet M-113 in order for Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley) to give a required annual medical check-up of the husband-and-wife team of archeologists working there. One seemingly minor complication is that Nancy Crater (Jeanne Bal), the wife, was once involved romantically with McCoy. Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy meet with an irrationally hostile reception from Robert Crater (Alfred Ryder), however, and then members of the crew start turning up dead from unknown causes. Ultimately, it's determined that they were killed by a sudden and medically inexplicable loss of all the salt from their bodies. The mystery deepens as some crew members find themselves approached by mysteriously compelling strangers, and the planet below is short one of its two inhabitants. Eventually, Kirk and Spock determine that their adversary is the last native inhabitant of the planet, a kind of salt "vampire" that has the ability to alter its appearance to the shape of whoever its victim most wants to see. Needless to say, finding the vampire aboard the ship is easier said than done. Its shape-shifting ability has also allowed it to temporarily incapacitate McCoy, whose ignorance of events nearly costs Kirk his life. ~ Bruce Eder, All Movie Guide Joan of Arcadia: Pilot No synopsis available.

The would-be vacationers end up in a Welsh holiday camp called the Shangri-La -- which is presently under siege by the Bannermen, a pair of genocidal assassins who have targeted another vacationer, Chimeron princess Delta (Belinda Mayne).

In trying to prevent this, the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and Mel (Bonnie Langford) learn to their surprise that the Chimeron infant doesn't really need any help.

Set against the anti-war protests, rock & roll revolution, and mind-expanding psychedelia of the 1960s, Julie Taymor's hallucinogenic musical follows the arduous journey of star-crossed lovers Jude (Jim Sturgess) and Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood) as they and a small group of musicians are swept up in the raging waters of the volatile counterculture movement.

The music in the film consists exclusively of songs made popular by the Beatles during the time period depicted in the movie. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
