Enemy Mine should be praised for its focus on character, especially considering it was made in a post- Star Wars world where everyone was cranking out sci-fi spectacles. For those who don’t know the film, it takes place in the distant future where humanity is at war with an alien race known as the "Dracs. " During a vicious battle a human pilot (Dennis Quaid) and a Drac pilot (Louis Gossett Jr. ) crash land on a planet. As they learn to survive together they form a great relationship that they struggle to maintain as outside forces intervene. This is another one of those few films from the '80s where most of the effects still hold up. The planet is beautiful. With a combination of sets and matte paintings, the film depicts a volcanic world with forests of stone pillars inhabited by slug-like monsters. One scene in particular that boasts the planet's richness is when Davidge (the human) tracks down the crashed Drac ship. As he follows the cloud of smoke we get a montage showing the pilot wandering through volcanic mountains and rocky hills, all while beneath a deep red sky. The world feels real and that can't be said for a lot of fantasy films. The Characters Unlike most sci-fi films at the time (and even today arguably), Enemy Mine has a restricted setting and focuses almost entirely on two characters. Davidge comes across as a bloodthirsty bigot, while Jeriba is an aggressive reptilian monster. As the film progresses they look past each other’s differences and eventually revealing that they are heartfelt people. This is can be seen in a particular scene where the couple are working on a shelter. The pilots are arguing about their religions again when, in a sudden act of empathy, Jeriba apologizes for his comments. Reluctantly, Davidge also apologizes for his comments. This is a genuinely touching scene that should give the film a broader appeal beyond cult sci-fi fandom. The Twists And Turns I think survival stories are pretty difficult to write considering the limited setting. Keeping the plot both compelling and believable would be hard, hence most survival stories are known for having weak third acts. Many have criticized Enemy Mine for having a similarly poor climax. Without getting into spoilers, I think Enemy Mine ’s third act is actually very creative. It introduces a powerful antagonist that poses a great threat to the characters we’ve grown to love. Additionally, it maintains the film’s theme of conquering xenophobia through understanding so, thematically, it’s not that far-fetched. The film should have a greater legacy for just avoiding the trap most survival films fall into. Overall, Enemy Mine is a great, emotionally engaging sci-fi drama that deserves a bigger audience.

As one of the most simple, effective and powerful forms of communication, it comes as no surprise that comic art has been misappropriated by governments, self-interest groups, do-gooders and sinister organisations to spread their messages. World War Two comic book propaganda with Superman, Batman, and Captain America bashing up cartoon enemies was so ubiquitous that there was barely a US comic untainted by the war effort. And theres no shortage of examples from the other side of the globe. This book examines every kind of propaganda, and how positive or pernicious messages have been conveyed in the pages of comic books over the last 100 years. Subject areas include racism and xenophobia, antidrugs comics, pro-drugs comics and religious comics. Plus, there is a look at social...
