Did You Know?
The rubber-like Drac ration balls were made from green jello.
When the Drac is sitting by the camp fire reading from his book, we see the open book for a few seconds. The page on the right is the same page as the left just upside down.
And so, Davidge brought the Dracs home. He fulfilled his vow, and brought Zammis before the Holy Council on Dracon. And, in the fullness of time, Zammis brought its own child before the Holy Council, the name of Willis Davidge was added to the line of Jereeba.
One of the Ten Best "Forgotten" Sci-Fi Classics
A funny thing happened to me on the way to
the video store...I ran across a sci-fi
film that didn't rely on space battles,
incredible special effects, or magnificent
sets and costumes. Instead, it relies on
a touching and compelling human story of
survival, hate and conflict - and of
bitter enemies becoming unlikely allies
and, eventually, close friends.
"Enemy Mine" is one of the ten best
"forgotten" sci-fi classics - those rare
little gems that got overlooked on their
initial release, but live on in video
Practically abandoned at the box office,
"Enemy Mine" found new life on video among
fans of the kind of science fiction we
only read about as kids - stories that
expanded our horizons and made use look at
the world in a whole new way, not just
wowing us with their dazzling effects.
It is the story of hotshot starfighter
pilot Willis Davidge (Dennis Quaid) who,
after a dogfight with the reptilian, alien
Drac, is stranded on a hostile planet with
one of the enemy. At first blinded by
their hatred of each other, the pair soon
learn that they can only survive by
working together. By doing so, they
develop a strange friendship that helps
break the wall of distrust between
If you get the chance to check out "Enemy
Mine", give it a chance. It's not likely
to go down in history as the best sci-fi
movie ever made, but it does have heart.
