  • The desert heat can definitely take its toll on the human body

      Hollywood has long been known to produce some great movies. It seems the wheels of the machine have stopped turning of late and all they will produce are remakes. Some, of course, seem light years better than others.

      Among the few that are destined to be forgotten are Flight of the Phoenix. This is a remake of a 1960’s film starring James Stewart.

      The idea

      of the film is a plane is flying some supplies over the Sahara desert when suddenly it crashes. I’ve never seen the original, so I only know the Dennis Quaid version.

      But I can tell from this crappy movie that they original must have been better. I only say this because it was in fact remade.

      Why would you remake a movie unless the original ...

      • was decent. This movie does okay on the survival aspect of the desert.

        It gives you tips if ever stranded. Like not walking in the desert, you’ll be fooled into thinking you’re walking a straight line only to find that you’re moving in a circle.

        And to conserve water. it’s very important to stay hydrated in the desert climate.

        And if you must work on

        your survival, work at night. The desert heat can definitely take its toll on the human body.

        I’ve always been a fan of Dennis Quaid, but I wasn’t crazy about this movie. It has some decent acting, but for the most part, they seem to over do it.

        It’s just run of the mill, typical hollywood hogwash that they put out to try and put butts in seats.
