My thoughts on The Andromeda Strain

Well, I just finished watching A&E's The Andromeda Strain and you know what, it was pretty cool. The ending was a bit cliche' but what are you gonna do? I never read the novel or watched the original so I have nothing to compare it to.
The movie was split in half, the first part was shown on Monday, and the second part the following night and I must say, I was quite entertained by it. Sure there were scenes that were quite cheesy, but it wasn't enough to ruin the rest of it, in fact, it sort of enhanced the other scenes. I'd definitely want to own this on DVD when it comes out, not because I worked on it (uncredited) but because it is actually worth watching the second time around, I'm sure it warrants repeat viewing with all the technical jargon they were throwing around, which, I'm assuming were quite accurate. I'd like to do some research on what they were actually talking about. I'm such a nerd! LOL... But anyways, I recommend it to those who like a good suspenseful Sci-fi flick with good acting and good FX, so check out A&E's The Andromeda Strain. You won't be disappointed. (BTW, you won't find the picture anywhere else, I made it in photoshop using shots I found at the A&E website... I hope they won't mind... it's not like I'm gonna sell the poster)
