Flight of the Phoenix 

Robert Aldrich

Published December 08, 2005.Flight of the PhoenixDirected by: Robert Aldrich(Fox)Figuring this remake of 1965's Flight of the Phoenix would be disposable, I never caught it in time for a review last Christmas. On a recommendation, I saw the film on its last night of release, entranced by its adventure tropes and surprised by its social politics. DVD doesn't match the experience of seeing John Moore's sand-and-sky vistas on a screen bigger than you are. But it does include a making-of documentary where the director goes crazy and throws a chair.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
