Well I would certainly hope Whitley wasn't in it, as he would have been a very young boy if he was even born then ;)

I'm fairly well versed in Roswell and it's key players. Its hard not to be since every talks about it all the damn time, 60 years later. :P

Here is an example of my Google Alerts results on any given day:
Roswell Roswell Roswell
Roswell Roswell Socorro
Jeff Peckman Roswell
Roswell Roswell Roswell
Sara Palin is a Moron
Roswell Roswell Roswell

:|

I kid, of course (sort of!). But you may like me better if I don't add my review of the film, lol :)

:| Do u think Roswell is the real deal ?
Are u familiar with this case ? It's the craziest i ever heard :shock:

Eh. Well. At the risk of sounding cliche , I am going to say "I think something crashed" and that it was covered up for whatever reason. For a long time I thought it was definitely and unknown craft, but these days I find myself on and off the fence about it.

The number of high-strangeness UFO cases in South America is fascinating. To paraphrase Scott Corrales, there is a tremendous difference between the type of story a Frenchman will recount ("they had me in for tea and pastries, kissed me on both cheeks, and went on their way") versus one a Venezuelan will tell (e.g. the "little hairy characters" that held an impromptu wrestling match with two terrified truck drivers before scurrying back into their craft and fleeing).

There is enough material here to launch a thousand cultural anthropology dissertations -- and a thousand more in cognitive psychology. But of course, that won't happen, because the people who write them will find themselves using their PhDs working fast-food drive thru windows.

Here is the draft I saved from the other night:

Aside form the mid-90s made-for-TV effects, it wasn't the worst thing in the world. But it certainly had a lot of artistic license where the plot was concerned -- which is where the fictional aspect comes in (not to mention other areas).

The storyline and dialog was very forced, like there was more attention paid on name-dropping than character development or emotion. At the end Martin Sheen finally stops meandering around in the background of scenes and unloads just about every popular conceivable theory on what happened or where 'they' might be from. Actually that part, while a little pushed and over-the-top, did bring up other possibilities beyond just simply 'They came from planet Mor'Glock"

I did like how it focused on the humility and determination of Jesse Marcel, though I'm not entirely sure how obsessed he was with getting the truth out. And I love me some Dwight -- and certainly some Sheen, so it wasn't completely terrible or anything. I guess I'd have to go more along the lines with Lesley's brief review -- that it wasn't a bad Made for a TV Movie.

~D

It did pass the time, and I did enjoy it enough to watch the whole thing, so -- there you have it.

"planet Mor'Glock"

That name makes me picture a flying saucer full of drunken Scotsmen. No wonder they crashed the thing!
