New Stargate Atlantis DVD Now Available


Stargate Atlantis followed the adventures of a human expedition to the lost city of Atlantis in the Pegasus Galaxy. The Stargate has brought humanity into contact with other cultures, including new and powerful enemies: the Wraith, the Genii, and later the Asurans and a lost tribe of Asgard, all while trying to uncover the secrets the Ancients left behind.

Dr. Jackson discovers the last symbol of the 8 digit code for Atlantis, the origin for the lost city Atlantis, the location not being earth, but much further away in a galaxy called Pegasus. Dr. Weir, who took control of the SGC facility in SG-1, have been appointed leader of a expedition that travels through the StarGate to find the lost city, together with Major Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) and his team they explore the lost city Atlantis and the Pegasus galaxy, hereby encountering a new all-powerful race ‘The Wraith’ that supposedly have wiped out the ‘human’ race The Ancients.

Major Sheppard, being a resemblance of Brigadier General Jack O’Neill, of course stirs things up, and awakens The Wraith, and hereby the battle between Good & Evil begins in the Pegasus galaxy.

SG:Atlantis is a lot like SG-1, don’t get me wrong though, it’s not entirely the same, but if you have seen the SG-1 show, you will know what I mean, it all begins in the same track that SG-1 did. To cut it short, Atlantis is more of the show we all love, SG-1, but in a new package, maybe even a better package, remember the budgets being bigger and bigger for the SG shows. I personally like Atlantis, it’s not like I’m seeing anything shockingly new, but it’s the fascinating universe of the SG, which we all love, and the more the merrier.

Tony Curtis Dies

Tony Curtis died at his home in bed in Henderson, Nevada, his daughter said on Friday. He was 85.

Curtis was one of the biggest box-office stars of the 1950s and one of Hollywood’s busiest playboys.

His dark-haired good looks made him a Hollywood star well before he became an accomplished actor in hit movies such as Some Like It Hot and The Sweet Smell of Success.

Two of his most enduring performances came in Some Like It Hot as he teamed with Jack Lemmon – playing cross-dressers opposite Marilyn Monroe – and The Sweet Smell of Success, in which which he played a fawning press agent.

Curtis made more than 140 films, mixing comedies with dramas, but part of his life was plagued by poor movies and struggles with cocaine and alcohol.

“My father leaves behind a legacy of great performances in movies and in his paintings and assemblages,” his daughter, actress Jamie Lee Curtis, said in a statement.

In her 1999 autobiography, Gloria Stuart: I Just Kept Hoping, she wrote about the part that, “I knew the role I had wanted and waited for all these many years had arrived!”
