Never Say Never Again, a review by Dragonfire




Sean Connery is back for his final performance as agent James Bond in this high-velocity action thriller...and now you can experience it as never before with this explosively entertaining Collector's Edition with all-new audio commentary and three nerver-before-seen featurettes! Angent 007 is hurled into a pulse-pounding race to save the world from armageddon when two atomic warheards are hijacked by the evil SPECTRE organization!

My Thoughts

I was only mildly entertained by this one.  The theme song sucks and the opening credits aren't that good.  M is acting like a new age idiot babbling on about free radicals and sending James off to that spa where the all the doctor seemed to want to do was order up colonics and enemas.  The plot was handled better in Thunderball.  The settings looked nice, but things just seem off.  The underwater scenes are nowhere near as good as the ones in Thunderball.  That computer game thing that Max and James played was just bizarre.  The cast is mostly ok.  Connery is still good, but he didn't seem like James anymore.  Blofeld wasn't as effective.  The action is ok, but nothing special.  I don't hate the movie, but I don't love it either.  I think I've actually seen this version more than Thunderball, but that version is so much better.

Teen Wolf Too, a review by addicted2dvd



Teen Wolf Too
Meet a college freshman who's having trouble fitting into his "genes" family ones, that is when he finds out his uncle and cousin are werewolves... and so is he! Now the clean cut science student is the star of the boxing team with a hair raising right hook and an animal attraction to his curvy coeds. Starring Jason Bateman (Necessary Roughness), this four fang film is sure to bring out the party animal in everyone!

My Thoughts:
Well... I would say this is more of the same as the last one.... and it it... but it just isn't as good. I mean it has it's entertainment value... but as no more then an average movie. I can understand why they released this one as a double feature along with part 1. As I know I for one probably wouldn't have paid extra money to have it in my collection. But considering I got this years ago for $7.50 at Walmart for both movies... who am I to complain? I have  never really been a huge fan of Jason Bateman... I mean he is ok I guess... but not someone who I would seek out the work of.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Tom's Random Reviews, a review by Tom




Title: Veronica Mars: Season One
Year: 2004
Director:
Rating: FSK-12

Plot:
A little bit Buffy. A little bit Bogart. A dash of Nancy Drew. Veronica Mars takes the best and brainiest of the American culture of crimesolving and adds a unique vision of its own - brooding, edgy, darkly funny and just plain dark - to become one of the hottest, sleekest series of the new century.

Veronica (Kristen Bell) is an outcast in a trendy SoCal beach town. Once she ran with Neptune High's in crowd. But she's on the outside after her best friend is murdered and her sheriff father accuses the wrong man as the perp: the dead girl's billionaire father. Dad loses his job, Veronica loses her popularity and both struggle to build a detective agency and new lives. E-mail scams, cults, car thefts - you name it, Veronica investigates it. But her obsession is the murder of her friend. And she'll take any risk to solve it.

My Thoughts:
When this first season was on sale, I finally took the chance to check this series out. For me it was very much like taking Chloe (my favorite character from Smallville) and giving her her own series. Veronica is very similar to her in my opinion.
I liked this season. Though I liked it from the start, I am not sure if I would have stayed with it if I would have started watching it while it originally aired. But watching all episodes in a row it constantly kept my interest.
But it was only towards the end it really sucked me in. But what a damn cliffhanger the last scene is! I wanted to wait with buying the second season until a later point, but now I am not sure if I can wait. But I will probably be disappointed with the resolution to this scene.
Spoiler (hover to show)

This series has also interesting choices of guest-stars. Although I was put off when Paris Hilton guest-starred in the second episode, there were other appearences which were more fun. Like Alyson Hannigan, of course. Also funny, that we got two Jimmy Olsens in one episode (Smallville's Jimmy and Superman Returns' Jimmy).
Sadly they missed themselves by one episode, but we almost had a reunion with Home Improvement's Brad and Randy.
From the regulars I have only known Kristen Bell (from "Heroes" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall") and Enrico Colantoni (from "Just Shoot Me!" and "Galaxy Quest").

A storyline which I hope they will follow up on in the second season is Mac and her real family.
