Among the best observation sites in Italy is the Madonie mountain range in Sicily. From here, it is possible to enjoy a clean sky, with no light pollution, which can offer a number of observation nights Sefira, clean air for Europe. Air quality is an important goal for European countries. Although it has improved in the last 20 years, we now realize that technical measures are not sufficient to reach the standards laid down in the National Technology Clusters: deadline for submitting applications extended.
With Directorial Decree no. How much do perfumes pollute? Slope, for the protection of forest resources in mountain areas. For many citizens who live in these areas, the forest is not only a green lung but also an economic Sustrail, towards a new era in rail freight transport. Futurewings, the plane that changes shape.
Imagining a plane that during the flight is able to change its shape to adapt to air currents while optimizing fuel consumption and performance would sound like science fiction but it could become reality From MIUR the provisions for the financial aids and support to scientific research. Lindsey tries to take the weapon from them but they make it clear that their secret mission is not to save men.
Nighttime, an alien enters the rig we see the action through the warped eyes of the alien and looks for Lindsey. This time the whole crew sees it. Lindsey realizes it does not mean harm and even plays with it, but the thing wants to grab the nuclear bomb and Coffee shuts the door, thereby cutting the alien in two. Coffee wants to kill the alien with the bomb and locks up everybody else. Bud manages to escape and attack Coffee, but Coffee releases the bomb and flees on an underwater vehicle. Bud dives, catches the bomb and ties it to a pipe.
Attacked by Coffee, Bud is about to die when Lindsey saves him on another vehicle. Chased by Coffee, the two drive through the bottom of the sea. After a mini underwater Star Wars, Coffee crashes and dies, but the bomb has been untied and it is falling. But Bud and Lindsey are also in trouble, because their vehicle is dead and taking water in. Bud swims back to the rig dragging the body of Lindsey, but Lindsey doesn't make it.
Bud tries everything to revive her and eventually succeeds. Bud embarks alone on the mission to save the aliens, but it is the aliens who save him and take him into their underwater spaceship. They communicate with him by projecting images on a giant screen. They are causing giant tsunamis that will cover all the countries in the world to annihilate mankind because mankind has committed too many sins.
Bud sees people panicking and the waves about to swallow them. But the waves stop in mid air and retreat. The aliens have taught mankind a lesson and tell Bud to love his wife too. The aliens bring back the rig to the surface of the sea and reunite Bud and Lindsey, while the navy watches over. The action is terribly slow, the plot is terribly predictable. An unbelievable quantity of embarassing Hollywood stereotypes.
The only appeal comes from the sophisticated underwater sequences and the complex machinery employed. Harry is a secret service agent who is so "secret" that even his wife, Helen, believes he is only a salesman and they are living the simplest of middle-class lives. Harry, instead, is involved in extremely dangerous and bloody missions. Harry and his partner Gib who just staged a spectacular raid on a Swiss chalet are after an organization of Arab terrorists, which they believe centers around an attractive oriental woman, Juno, and which may have acquired nuclear bombs.
In reality, Juno only an employee of the organization. A major distration is that one day Harry overhears his wife, a humble secretary, accepting a lunch appointment with a mystery man, Simon, a used car salesman. As he has neglected her one times too many, it is not surprising that she decided to explore other romantic avenues. The investigation turns from surveilling terrorists to surveilling Harry's wife. Simon romances Helen and even proposes to her. As he is about to make love to her, Harry's pals stage a massive attack on his house and kidnap Helen.
Helen is taken to a room where is interrogated by Harry and Gib, who are hiding behind a glass screen. The interrogation is all about her personal life. She confesses she is a frustrated housewife who, for a second, dreamed of an adventurous life. Harry decides to give her the thrill of her life. He tells her she must work for them or go to prison. She accepts and he gives her an assignment in which she has to impersonate a call girl. They meet in a hotel room. She doesn't recognize her husband as the customer for whom she has to strip.
She rebels when he starts touching her and finally finds that her customer is her husband. But right at that moment the Arabs break in and kidnap them she thinks they are after her. They are taken into an airplane, where they are welcome by Juno, and transported to the bunker where they blackmail Harry into cooperating with their nuclear plans in return for the release of his wife. The leader of the terrorist blows up an island off the coast of Florida as a demonstration and threatens to blow up one American city a week.
Harry manages to escape but the terrorists hold his wife still dressed like a hooker. It takes a spectacular action to rescue her. Unfortunately, some of the terrorists have escaped and now they have kidnapped his daughter. The girl steals the key that controls the nuclear arsenal and the chief terrorist chase her over the scaffolding of a skyscraper.
Harry pilots a fighter plane to rescue her, and she jumps on the cockpit cover. The terrorist jumps too and hangs on to the tail of the plane. Harry manouvers the plane to get rid of the terrorist while the girl swings wildly in the sky. L'oggetto urta il sottomarino ma causa solo pochi minuti di turbolenza.
Per le operazioni di salvataggio, la Marina militare conta su piattaforma petrolifera in grado di lavorare a grandi profondita'. E' gestita da Bud che invia una spedizione condotta dalla scontrosa Lindsey, progettatrice della piattaforma stessa. Mentre la piattaforma e' isolata dal mondo esterno, a bordo si combatte una guerra tra forti personalita' perennemente discordanti. Bud e Lindsey incominciano ad odiarsi proprio mentre devono fronteggiare il misterioso alieno. In superficie e' in corso un'altra guerra: la scoperta, diventata ben presto internazionale, costringe gli USA ad ammonire l'Unione Sovietica colpevole di aver inviato militari in quell'area.
In breve il mondo si trova sull'orlo di un conflitto nucleare. Bud ed i suoi sommozzatori entrano nel sottomarino ma trovano solo corpi privi di vita. Uno dei sommozzatori scorge qualche cosa, terrorizzato e colto dal panico danneggia il proprio equipaggiamento: viene trovato in coma. Lindsey, da una navetta vicino al sottomarino, scorge un lampo dall'origine misteriosa. Bud e Lindsey rimangono intrappolati nella piattaforma sottomarina stavano riparando una stazione spaziale? Lindsey esce per riparare il danno e ha un incontro ravvicinato co l'alieno, simile ad un elfo trasparente, e con la sua nave spaziale assomigliante ad una gigantesca ameba.
Una volta tornata nella piattaforma pero' nessuno le crede. Due uomini della Marina, sotto il comando dello psicotico Coffee, si chiudono in una camera con due armi nucleari recuperati dal sottomarino. Lindsey cerca di sottrarle al loro controllo ma e' chiaro che la missione segreta non e' per salvare degli uomini.
Durante la notte un alieno entra nella piattaforma tutto viene mostrato con la visione deformante dell'alieno per cercare Lindsey. Questa volta lo vede l'intero equipaggio. Lindsey comprende che non ha intenzioni di fare del male e addirittura ci gioca; la cosa intende prendere le bombe nucleari e Coffee chiudendo il portello taglia in due l'alieno. Coffee intende uccidere l'alieno con la bomba e, per questo, rinchiude tutti gli altri.
Bud riesce a fuggire e attaccare Coffee che, lasciata la bomba, fugge a bordo di un veicolo sottomarino. Bud recupera la bomba e la lega ad un tubo metallico. Attaccato da Coffee, Bud sta per essere ucciso quando Lindsey, a bordo di un altro veicolo, lo salva. Inseguiti da Coffee i due fuggono nelle profondita' del mare. Dopo una mini Star Wars sottomarina, Coffee si schianta e muore ma le bombe, slegatesi, precipitano. Anche Bud e Lindsey si trovano nei guai: il loro veicolo e' danneggiato ed imbarcano acqua.
Bud torna a nuoto sulla piattaforma trascinando il corpo di Lindsey, ma Lindsey non ce la fa. Bud tenta di rianimarla e, alla fine, ci riesce. Bud parte in missione solitaria per aiutare gli alieni ma sono gli stessi alieni a salvarlo e a portarlo nella navetta spaziale. Comunicano con Bud grazie ad immagini proiettate su uno schermo gigante dove giganteschi tsuna mi, scatenati da loro, distruggono tutti i paesi del mondo perche' l'umanita', colpevole di troppi peccati, venga punita.
Bud vede persone in preda al panico sul punto di essere inghiottite da onde che, invece, si fermano a mezz'aria e retrocedono. Gli alieni hanno dato una lezione all'umanita' e chiedono a Bud che egli ami sua moglie. Gli alieni riportano la piattaforma in superficie e, mentre Bud e Lindsey si riconciliano, la Marina sorveglia. Gli eventi si svolgono in maniera terribilmente lenta e la trama e' assurdamente prevedibile; senza contare poi la presenza di una quantita' incredibile di stereotipi hollywoodiani. Gli unici elementi gradevoli sono le sequenze subacquee ed i congegni.
True Lies e' una parodia di James Bond o meglio, una parodia di Die Hard Harry e' un agente segreto, molto segreto. Persino sua moglie, Helen, crede che sia un semplice venditore e che insieme conducano una delle piu' classiche vite da ceto medio. Invece Harry e' coinvolto in missioni sanguinose e pericolosissime. Harry e Gib, suo collega ed amico appostato come copertura per una spettacolare incursione in uno chalet svizzero sono sulle tracce di un'organizzazione terroristica araba, - manovrata da un'attraente donna orientale, Juno - forse intenzionata all'acquisto di bombe nucleari.
Juno in realta' e' solo una pedina della organizzazione. Dei sicari tentano di uccidere Harry: ne deriva un ridicolo inseguimento a cavallo e motocicletta nei corridoi di un hotel. Harry attraversa fontane e sale sull'ascensore, tutto cio' a cavallo, per prendere il terrorista con un ostaggio. Una variazione divertente incomincia quando Harry scopre per caso che sua moglie, una segretaria dimessa, ha accettato di andare a pranzo con un uomo misterioso, Simon, un venditore di auto usate. Dopo averla trascurata per tanto, troppo, tempo Gib n.
L'obiettivo delle investigazioni cambia: dai terroristi alla moglie di Harry. Simon fa la corte ad Helen e le si dichiara. Proprio quando e' sul punto di fare l'amore con lei i compagni di Harry scagliano un massiccio attacco entrando nella sua casa e rapiscono Helen. Helen, condotta in una stanza, e' interrogata da Harry e Gib nascosti dietro uno specchio.
L'interrogatorio riguarda esclusivamente la sua vita personale. Confessa di essere una donna frustrata che, almeno per un momento, ha sognato una vita piena di avventure. Harry decide di darle una vita entusiasmante; le dice che deve lavorare per loro se non vuole andare in prigione.
Helen accetta e le viene dato un compito: impersonare una ragazza squillo. L'incontro avviene in una stanza d'albergo. Helen non riconosce che il cliente che ha richiesto lo strip e' suo marito. Solo quando incomincia a toccarla si ribella e, finalmente, se ne accorge. Ma, proprio in quel momento, gli arabi irrompono nella stanza e li rapiscono H. Fatti salire su di un aereo, dove e' Juno ad accoglierli, sono portati nel covo dove intendono ricattare Harry perche' collabori con loro se rivuole sua moglie.
Il capo dei terroristi come dimostrazione distrugge un'isola al largo della Florida e minaccia di fare altrettanto con una citta' americana alla settimana. Harry progetta di scappare ma i terroristi hanno sua moglie vestita ancora come una squillo. Per salvarla da' vita ad imprese spettacolari. Sfortunatamente alcuni dei terroristi riusciti a fuggire hanno rapito sua figlia. La ragazza presa una chiave di controllo delle testate nucleare viene inseguita dal capo dei terroristi sulle impalcature di un grattacielo.
Harry prende in prestito un aereo da combattimento per salvarla e la spinge a saltare sulla plancia. Anche il terrorista si lancia e si aggrappa alla coda dell'aeroplano. Harry manovra l'aeroplano per sbarazzarsi del terrorista mentre la ragazza viene sballottata pericolosamente.

Disperata, stava per gettarsi in mare quando un giovane, Jack, che aveva vinto il biglietto del Titanic a poker, la convinse a non farlo. Rose viveva nel lusso, controllata dalla madre, un ghiacciolo interessata soltanto a salvare le fortune della famiglia tramite un buon matrimonio, e dal fidanzato, un essere vile e sprezzante. Con la vita dei saloni e della prima classe contrasta la folla dei miserabili che vive nella stiva e la folla dei macchinisti che opera le caldaie.
Il fidanzato, per vendicarsi, fece credere che Jack avesse rubato il diamante e lo fece arrestare. Ironia della sorte, il diamante rimase nella tasca della sua giacca. La nave cola a picco in una scena lunga e insopportabile, il kitsch del catastrofico. Alla fine rimangono centinaia di disgraziati a sguazzare nell'acqua gelida dell'oceano e fra questi anche Jack e Rose.
Jack mette in salvo Rose su un pezzo di legno ma muore assiderato. Una delle scialuppe torna indietro e trova Rose ancora viva. La va a cercare fra i superstiti, ma lei si nasconde, preferisce farsi credere morta. Ora, vecchia, guarda l'oceano: in tasca ha ancora il diamante, e lo getta in mare. Avatar is a random collection of stereotypes and dejavus, the ultimate implausible plot with implausible characters in an implausible world, with frequent plagiarizing of old sci-fi and adventure movies.
Inside a "Space Odyssey"-like spaceship humans are preparing for a mission. There are three entities at work. The scientists want to explore and better understand the planet Pandora. A corporation has the mission to obtain control of the largest reserves ever discovered of a precious mineral which is no longer oil in that future, but you get the point.
And the army is there to "protect" the mission with its high-tech helicopters and cyborgs. The problem is a savage tribe that inhabits that region and needs to be infiltrated and convinced to cooperate. The scientists, led by the tough-talking and chain-smoking Grace, can create "avatars" of people who look like the natives. Jake has been selected for this mission because he is the brother, and therefore shares the same genes, of a renown scientist who died. Jake is actually a former soldier who is now paralyzed below the belly and therefore on a wheelchair. However, his avatar will have all the strength and agility of a warrior.
The avatars can be recalled at any time by pressing a button that reactivates the real human and temporarily kills the avatar. Jake immediately masters the new body and enjoys being able to run and jump again. A native mostly-naked girl saves him from a pack of wolf-like creatures by showing her dexterity with the bow. She tells him that he is stupid, ignorant and childish but she likes that he is fearless. He first experiences the magic of the forest when he gets surrounded by tiny medusa-like spirits.
The horse-riding and spear-branding savages capture him and take him to their chief in a scene modeled after a million Indian movies. The chief conveniently entrusts him to the girl, Neytiri, who is his daughter, to get the training necessary to become a member of their tribe.
Grace pushes the button and brings him back to camp where he relates his adventures with the tribe: his job is to spy on them, infiltrate them and then betray them. He keeps going back and forth between human in the laboratory and avatar in the forest , filing report after report while getting better and better at living like them.
The tribe lives just like the old "Indian" tribes of the USA, except that on Pandora they also have flying horses. He passes all the tests and is accepted by the tribe. The girl takes him to the most sacred place and they make love. Just then the giant machine of the corporation begins mowing the jungle on its way towards the mineral deposits.
The colonel in charge of the military terminates the avatars of Jake and Grace, who are trying to stop the aggression. Jake is given one hour to convince the tribe to evacuate or they will all be killed by the army.
Jake's avatar returns, accompanied by Grace's avatar, to the forest and confesses to the tribe that he came as a spy to help destroy them and did a very good job. Now the girl obviously hates him.
