"Those Canadians really know how to build great hardware, I tell you."

These were the words of American astronaut Susan Helm, spoken minutes after using Canadarm2 to attach a US-made airlock to a port on the International Space Station earlier this week.

I have a problem. It's one I'm sure I share with many other students. My car is nearly as old as I am and it runs as frequently as it doesn't. If you drive down Memorial Drive and see a sun-faded '85 Mustang with bald tires, odds are that's me, broken down, again.

The safest bet for a good movie this summer has to be The Score.

Starring three of the most capable actors to ever grace Hollywood--Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro (the next Marlon Brando), and Edward Norton (the next Robert DeNiro)--it has to, in the very least, feature good acting. Not surprisingly, it does. The Score is the best showcase of acting skills in recent memory, though not the most compelling story.

Even Gilligan would've learned by now. But unfortunately, the professor is still way behind.

Dr. Grant (Sam Neill) is back in full form in Jurassic Park III, the third instalment in the series, to prove that, not only are raptors even more intelligent than ever imagined (even after almost being eaten in the first movie), but he hasn't learned anything about getting tricked into going onto a dinosaur infested island.
