My Thoughts:
Rather boring. Seemed more like a parody and in parts felt more like an amateur movie. Sean Connery obviously didn't want to be there.
And why do they have to change Blofeld's character and looks in each movie? This time I did expect him to break into song anytime ("It's just a jump to the left... And then a step to the ri-ight!... Put your hands on your hip...").

Backdraft, a review by Eric


Backdraft





When I bought it I thought this was gonna look amazing in HD.............I was right :clap:.  Definitely worth buying since since it cost just about the same price as the popcorn and yogurt I had while watching it  ;D

This is the HD-DVD movie I watch and so far I'm very happy I went for it.

Twilight Zone, a review by addicted2dvd


Slowly watching this series... finally finished the first disc of season 3...

Season 3: Disc 1
66. Two (9/15/61)
Two lone survivors (Elizabeth Montgomery, Charles Bronson) of a nuclear holocaust must start the world anew - a difficult prospect since they are from opposing sides in the war!

My Thoughts:
This is an episode I enjoyed a lot... one that I have seen once or twice before. I really enjoyed both actors in this episode... so that was a plus. Attached to the end of this episode was a TV Spot for The Ed Sullivan Show. Unfortunately the only extra with this one is an isolated score. I would have liked to see some more extras with this one.

67. The Arrival (9/22/61)
A plane lands safely, but all its passengers, pilot and crew are missing! When a veteran FAA investigator is called upon to solve the mystery his own past provides the answer.

My Thoughts:
Another really good episode...  this is another one I never seen before. I really liked the mystery in this one... it is one that I wasn't able to figure out before they revealed it. Attached to this episode was a TV Spot for Gunsmoke. Once again... the only extra to go along with this episode is an isolated score.

68. The Shelter (9/29/61)
When a UFO invasion appears imminent, several suburban friends and neighbors are reduced to selfish, conniving animals in a fight over one family's bomb shelter.

My Thoughts:
This is another really good episode.... one that I have seen before. Attached to the end of this episode is a TV Spot for Gunsmoke. Unfortunately there wasn't any extras with this episode what so ever.

69. The Passersby (10/6/61)
On the road home from the Civil War, a Confederate soldier stops at a house. He and the owner, a recent widow, soon realize that all who pass are dead! Including them!

My Thoughts:
This one I have seen before... good thing since the write-up that came with the disc contains such a big spoiler. Of course they hint extremely hard towards the beginning... so that is probably the reason for it. It was a very good episode though. I enjoyed every second of it. attached to the end of this episode is a commercial for The United Way. Extras for this episode include an isolated score and The Twilight Zone Radio Drama starring Morgan Britanny.

70. A Game of Pool (10/13/61)
Jesse (Jack Klugman) is a brilliant pool player whose dream of a showdown with the legendary (and dead) Fats Brown (Jonathan Winters) comes true. The stakes: his life.

My Thoughts:
Another one I have seen before... and a really good episode. I enjoyed every minute of it. Attached to the end of this episode is a TV Spot for Gunsmoke. This episode has a lot of extras with it as well... with this episode you get... Audio Commentary with Jonathan Winters... Marc Zicree Interview with Buzz Kulik and Buck Houghton... Jonathon Winters reads the Alternate Ending Scene from the Original Script... and a Clip from the 1989 Remake.

71. The Mirror (10/20/61)
After a poor, but ambitious Central American farm worker (Peter Falk) overthrows his country's tyrannical leader, he discovers that he may be his own worst enemy.

My Thoughts:
This is an episode I never seen before. Not one that I would call a favorite.. but not really bad either. I didn't even recognize Peter Falk in this one! Attached to the end of this episode is an advertisement for a booklet called The Promise of America. This episode had no extras what so ever with it.

72. The Grave (10/27/61)
Before he died, notorious badman Pinto Sykes put a curse on hired-gun Conny Miller (Lee Marvin). If Miller ever sets foot on his grave, he will kill him - a threat Sykes carries out!

My Thoughts:
This one I have seen before. And is one I enjoyed very much.I really liked the ending of this western story. Other then Lee Marvin it was cool to see James Best in this episode... who later plays Roscoe in "The Dukes of Hazzard. Attached to the end of the episode is a TV Spot for Gunsmoke. The only extra with this episode is an Isolated Score.

73. It's A Good Life (11/3/61)
He knows your every thought, can feel your every emotion. He can eliminate all you hold dear. Who is he? A six-year-old boy (Billy Mumy) from Peaksville, Ohio!

My Thoughts:
Another one that I have seen before... and is one that has always been one of my favorites. Attached to the end of this episode was a advertisement for Religion in American Life. The extras included with this episode are an Audio Commentary by Bill Mumy, an Isolated Score and a Clip from the 2003 sequel It's Still a Good Life with optional commentary by Bill Mumy
