Enemies because they were taught to be. Allies because they had to be. Brothers because they dared to be.

Willis Davidge (Dennis Quaid) is a soldier in a war set in the future; a war between the Earth humans and the Reptilian aliens known as the Dracs. Davidge crash lands on a distant alien volcanic world while in combat with a Drac, Jeriba Shigan (Louis Gossett Jr.). Jeriba also crash lands on the planet. Finding themselves stranded on the unknown and dangerous planet, the two enemies put aside their differences in an effort to survive. The two eventually become friends, brothers even.

Dennis Quaid gives one of his best performances in this movie, while Gossett does an incredible job playing the Drac (including having to speak in ‘alien tongue’). This movie doesn’t have the super cool and big battle scenes like you might expect with a “human vs. aliens” movie. It is, however, a great sci-fi drama that tells a very good story and carries a positive message everyone could learn from.

Crypto Code trading robot also is best known for its accurate performance in trading crypto currencies. This online trading system was designed and created by Derrick Simmons who is a well-known and skilled forex investor. The online trading tool has both auto-pilot and manual trading features to help all the traders get an equal chance to the various trading opportunities in the virtual assets market. Five years of research and testing has led to the development of this amazing tool. The fact that the actual founder has vast experience in trading forex has made the system more efficient. If one has access to computer or mobile devices and a stable internet connection, anybody can trade on this online website. The registration steps are also quite simple and straight forward. Once registered, the users are required to set the parameters of trade so that the system can do the trading based on the preferences.

If you have never seen this movie (it was released in 1985), you owe it to yourself to rent it or look around the bargain bins and see if you can find a cheap copy of it on DVD or Blu-ray. I’d rank this as one of Dennis Quaid’s best movies/performances.
