Star Trek: Nemesis Film4, 6.50pm (2002) THIS one again? Its played virtually every month. Whats wrong with The Wrath Of Khan (1982) or The Undiscovered Country (1991)? Anyway, Jean Luc Picard has to fight a clone of his younger self who is threatening to destroy the Earth. But you probably know that already. Stars Patrick Stewart, above, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner as Data, and Tom Hardy. Ali G Indahouse ITV1, 10.35pm (2002) BEFORE Sacha Baron Cohen was Kazakhstani or Austrian, he was a chav from Staines. In his first feature-length outing, Ali G is caught up in the Chancellors attempt to overthrow the Prime Minister, played by Michael Gambon, above with Baron Cohen. There are some laughs, but Ali G was better in smaller doses on a smaller screen. Alien Resurrection E4, 11.05pm (1997) DONT be fooled by the above photo of Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder. There isnt much tenderness in this final (hopefully) instalment of the Alien franchise. This time Ellen Ripley (Weaver) is a cloned alien-human hybrid -- but the aliens are still the same. French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet brings in his usual cast of Ron Perlman and Dominique Pinon. The Juror Five, 10pm (1996) A GOOD cast and a tried and tested plot -- court juror being pressured by outside influences -- cant save this film from being a stinker. Demi Moore, above, is the hapless juror who is being threatened by a menacing hitman known as The Teacher. Towards the end of the film the plot meanders and falters, as if the writers were putting the finishing touches to it as they went along. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
