Second, Shane looks at what he called "Bad Boy James Bond" in the heist film "Entrapment". Shane compares the plot to a Bond film, and discusses the use of too many twists, and how they jumbled the ending of the film.

Shane Talks '99: April 16th, 1999

 It's another trifecta weekend in 1999, but Shane doesn't have much to say about two of the three films.  Shane has never seen "All About My Mother", so he looks at the awards its won.  Shane didn't see "Friends & Lovers" until 2000 when he was working at a video store.  Finally, Shane does have a lot to say about his recent re-watch of the comedy film "Life".  Shane looks at the amazing cast that was assembled for this film, and examines how his feels have changed since his first viewing.
