Lifeboat, a review by Dragonfire


This was the first time I had seen this one, though I had heard of it before. 

The plot works well even though it isn't as complex as some of Hitchcock's other movies.  It is just dealing with the survivors in the lifeboat, but since one of them is German, that does add some issues that get dealt with.  There is a bit of mystery tied to if Willy is really trying to help or if he has something else in mind like at least one of the others believes.  There are a few confrontations that help to keep things interesting.  One rather drastic thing is done at one point, though nothing much is shown, it is still clear what is going on.  A few somewhat disturbing things happen, though they all make sense given what is going on in the movie.  There isn't as much shared about most of the characters.  Constance seems the most developed even though still many things remain a mystery about her. 

Overall, I really enjoyed the movie.


I even managed to review of it posted on Epinions. :)

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd


A mysterious explosion demolishes and underground lab. Can MacGyver single-handedly rescue the trapped scientists, and stop a deadly chemical leak?

My Thoughts:
This show is a weird case to me. It is a show I enjoy watching quite a bit really. But for some reason it is a show that is out of site out of mind. For some reason I don't go through the episodes of this show like I do most. More like I will get in the mood to watch some episodes. I will usually watch a handful of episodes and then forget about the series for a year or two. This is probably why I only have the first couple seasons of the series so far... though I would like to have them all. The pilot episode is a good introduction to the character. Of course you feel like... Yeah... right... like that would really work (in this case stopping an acid leak with chocolate bars)... but I think that is part of the fun of the series. Just to see the outrageous things he comes up with.

my Rating:
