Synopsis: Christine is an amnesiac. Every morning she wakes up, not knowing where she is, why she’s in her 40s and who the man lying next to her is. But, when she reads the journal she’s been writing for the last few weeks, her suspicions grow. Is her life really all that Ben, the man who tells her he’s her husband, says it is?

Just before Season 2 premiers in the UK on Channel, 5 sometime during August, I would like to take the opportunity to review the first season of Under the Dome. In general I thought that it had good promise and the start really had me enthralled in the characters and plot. It was a good depiction of what life gets to be like in a real emergency with no law and order (maybe a slight bit over the top). However, from about episode 6 onwards, the show takes a turn for the worse and becomes so much more “spiritual” and suddenly it is all about magic. From watching the pilot, the ending looks like it is from a completely different show. Looking back at the teaser trailer now, you can definitely see how much the season progressed over the 13, hour-long (including ad-breaks) episodes.
Starring: Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman
Stand By Me is relatively old (in colour, though) but is still a great watch. It deals with many issues that still affect people today but still manages to hold a good pace and an intriguing storyline. You can still pick this movie up on Amazon Instant and probably a few other movie rental services.
