I'm having another "too many movies, too little time" weekend.
The Lord of the Rings fan girl in me wants to go see Hidalgo. It has Viggo Mortensen on a horse. It has a guy trying to succeed against outrageous odds and people who don't think he's up to the task. It has natural disasters and big epic visuals.
The Master and Commander fan girl in me wants to go see The Reckoning. It has Paul Bettany in a historical English setting. It's more about characters than high adventure, despite apparently misleading previews. It's got a great ensemble cast.
The dweeb who grew up in the 1970s fan girl in me wants to go see Starsky and Hutch. It has Stiller and Wilson. The Times remembers, "The TV show featured a pair of apparently plainclothes fuzz — who were they supposed to be fooling? When they weren't tumbling into each other's arms, they were sliding over the roofs of cars or over suspects' Miranda rights." Bwahahaha!
But, you know, now that Maryland will be playing Duke for the ACC title, I probably won't get to the movies at all, as the Terrapins take precedence.

Trek Two Years Ago
These were some of the major news items from March 2002:
- Sailors Of The Year Jump Aboard 'Enterprise'
The U.S.S. Enterprise's 'Sailors of the Year' visited their fictional 22nd century counterpart to film guest appearances for the upcoming Enterprise episode "Desert Crossing", having been invited to appear on the series after the United States Navy honoured them for exceptional service.
- Combs Proud To Play First Andorian
Jeffrey Combs said that although he was initially uncertain about returning to Star Trek, he was delighted to be invited to lay the groundwork for the Andorian race: "Just from an historical lineage point of view, the opportunity to be a part of an echo of the Original Series was too big for me to turn down."
- 'Nemesis' Principal Photography Finishes
Graphic artist Rick Sternbach said that principal photography was "pretty much done" on Nemesis, while visual effects house Digital Domain had begun work on the film.

Today's Television Listings
- Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time, UPN will show a rerun of Enterprise's "Similitude". Here's the official synopsis of the episode:
When Trip suffers a catastrophic injury, his only hope for survival is a transplant from a "mimetic simbiot" – a clone – which Phlox grows from one of his exotic creatures. But it's a very troubling solution.
