There may be six manly men in this movie, but they are no "Reservoir Dogs."

Close encounters with 'Fire'

by Alison Levy and Michael Thompson
Back in the seventies when people were happy, they wore
crappy clothes, the sideburns were bushier, and the music
was good, a poor sap was abducted for a few days of R&R by
some evil aliens. His name was Travis Walton. This is the
Fire in the Sky
written by Tracy Torme; directed by Robert Lieberman; with
Robert Patrick, D.B. Sweeney and Craig Sheffer
review of his story. Oh, and the story of his five friends who
were accused by James Garner of killing him.
Michael: Oh, boy, what an exciting concept! An ex-
panded two hour "Unsolved Mysteries," minus Robert Stack
and his tremendous acting ability.
Alison: Really? It's not a concept, it's a true story. Didn't
you read the press kit? I'm glad Robert Stack wasn't in this
film, 'cause that left more time for the comic genius of Craig
Sheffer ("A River Runs Through It"), who isn't in the movie
nearly enough. Really, really, funny.
Michael: Whatever. Ile and the story were hardly enough
to sustain a feature length movie. I kept waiting for the
commercial break so I could go get my Coke and Chips.
Alison: First, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I don't think
they sell chips at the theaters. Second, by story do you mean
the screenplay, penned by fabulously brilliant and lovable
Tracy Torme? The only huge problem I had was too little
Craig and too much of the bitchy wife. But, I guess if I lived
in Snowflake, Arizona, I'd be pretty crabby too.
Michael: What a kiss-ass; he's not going to give you ajob
Alison, deal with it. And you're not going to meet Craig
Sheffer or that other unmentionable. And the wife was
supposed to be crabby, the whole town was. Or did you miss
that point while you were cowering in your seat during the
operation sequence?
Alison: Michael, Michael, Michael. Why don't you enjoy
the calming effect of several Valium, while I put this article
back in focus. The only reason I was cowering was because
I was gagging. That was seriously the most disgusting thing
I've ever seen. You're lucky there were no breaks to get chips,
'cause I would have puked them up all over you. As God as
my witness, I would rather sit directly across from Michael
Madsen in "Reservoir Dogs" while he cut some guy's ear off,
instead of sit through that again.
Michael: What? I fell asleep during all that talking. It
wasn't that bad, Alison. We had this discussion in our last

article. You have to start remembering that it's just a movie,
OK? Now, granted, this was based on a true story and hey, I
believe it, but what we saw was not, I repeat, was not real. Got
it?
Alison: It was too, real. Travis Walton said so. Once again
I must refer you to the press kit. If you don't start reading
them, I refuse to write any more articles with you. That's what
I liked about it, that something, seemingly unreal, really was.
I thought the acting helped out a lot in that respect.
Michael: Get off the Craig Sheffer thing. Yes, the acting
was good and so was the writing, it was the story I had a
problem with. And I read the press kit so I know it was real,
it just wasn't interesting enough. Now I'm going back to
sleep so you can go on about Tim Roth or whoever.
Alison: Fine. But, TunRoth wasn't in this movie. Perhaps
you have a serious attention disorder. And, I wasn't talking
about Craig Sheffer this time. I was talking about Robert
Patrick ("Terminator 2") and D.B. Sweeney ("The Cutting
Edge").I liked the way that their ordeals paralleled each other
and Patrick's character Mike was more affected by the abuse
of society than his friend Travis (Sweeney), who was actually
taken by the aliens. Also, Sweeney was amazing as the
reclusive Travis who acted like a frightened animal after the
attack of his well-wishing friends. The only thing I couldn't
figure out was why Henry Thomas' character had such a hard
time dealing with the whole thing. E.T. fucking lived in his
closetfor aboutayear, for God's sake. Hey, wakeup. It's your
turn.
Michael: Another fucking speech. Whatever. Yeah, the
parallel was good, but not enough. And yeah, Henry Thomas
was kind of weird. Maybe puberty was really hard on him, I
don't know. Whatever the case may be, this movie had a lot
of the right things, but just didn't make it.
Alison: Well, at least I have interesting things to say
instead of leaching off the small dribble that you put out.
Overall, I liked the film. But, unfortunately for you I have to
go fill out my tax forms because he will give me ajob. lie said
so.
Michael: As they say in Hollywood, trust me, Alison.
Alison: Same to you.
Michael: And more of it, you pre-pubescent psuedo critic.
Alison: If I were pre-pubescent, I would write something
really mean, but I'm not, so I won't, you big ninny.
Michael: Well, that's all the time, space and patience we
have! Go see the movie and until next time the terminal is
closed.

FIRE IN THE SKY

RZECORDS
Continued from page S
Although such freedom can be equally
as taxing on the performer's and
listener's concentration, each piece on
"from p.s. 122" creates a thrilling dy-
namic without overkilling each piece's
unique methodology.
Since each solo had to be recorded
individually, the CD uniquely collects
some of the downtown's most forth-
right improvisation (complete with
Dunaway's balloon torture, Jauniaux's
contorted vocals, and Cartwright's frigid
winds). But, if that doesn't blow your
horn, it's worth a listen just to hear
shears played, along with a stick violin,
toy piano, "junk," and a travicello-
mutant spawns of America's armpit.
-Chris Wyrod
The Loud Family
Plants And Birds And Rocks
And Things

Alias Records
Scott Miller has broken up Game
Theory and formed the Loud Family,
but he remains the same Big Star/Alex
Chilton devotee he has been throughout
his career. On the first Loud Family
album, "Plants and Birds and Rocks
and Things," Miller again works with
his long-time producer Mitch Easter,
who produced three Game Theory al-
bums. By now, Miller's songwriting is
so firmly entrenched that he cannot
write a song which doesn't resemble
Alex Chilton. However, they are very
good Alex Chilton songs, full of big,
bell-toned guitars and elliptical melo-
dies; theyare better than anything Chilton
himself is writing these days.
Miller may realize the striking simi-
larity between Chilton and himself in
not only their writing but even in their
voices. Perhaps this is the reason for the
audio experimentation on "Plants ...'
and the last Game Theory album. All of

is playing at Showcase.
the overdubbed vocal snippets, special
tape effects, and annoying wordplay
seem like hopeless attempts to mask
Miller's lack of original ideas. At times
it winds up sounding like the Beatles's
"Revolution 9" played simultaneously
with Big Star's "September Gurls," but
more often than not Miller and Easter
rely on straightforward productions of
the songs.
Miller's hooks and melodies are from
old-school pop, music that will sound
traditional no matter what the context,
so the all the experimentation is futile.
All the tinkering doesn't hurt the genu-
ine pop masterpieces here (such as the
delirious one-twopunch of"Jimmy Still
Comes Around" and "Take Me Down
(Too Halloo)") but it nevertheless dis-
tracts. There are enough solid songs to
make this worthwhile for power-pop
fans, but in the end this is pure pop for
people with patience.
