Unholy, a review by addicted2dvd
Weekend Movie Marathon
1/18 - 1/20
This weekend I decided against having any type of theme for my Marathon... Thought I would just go with anything from my collection.... as the mood hits. Whether I seen it or not... whether it is old or new... no matter the genre or who is in it. All is fair game this weekend! So this weekend I watched...
'Adrienne Barbeau' (of THE FOG, SWAMP THING and CREEPSHOW fame) and 'Nicholas Brendon' (Xander of 'BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER') star in this provocative shocker about a mother's investigation into the grisly suicide of her daughter. But what begins as a family tragedy will soon lead to a conspiracy of bizarre crimes, occult carnage and a necromancer who may control a dark new trinity of warfare. How far would our government go to harness a Nazi legacy of paranormal power? Has the U.S. military secretly attempted to develop time travel, invisibility and mind-control as weapons? The answers wait in a mind-blowing journey that will take one woman from the trauma of the unimaginable to the ultimate horror of the 'UNHOLY'.
This movie was a blind buy. The only thing I saw was the trailer online one day. It looked interesting so thought I would check it out. This movie wasn't terrible... but was far from great. I would say it is no more then an OK movie. I actually found it to be a bit on the weird side. I have become a fan of Adrienne Barbeau... though she didn't do her best work in this movie. I like Nicholas Brendon as Xander in the Buffy series... and this is the first time I seen him in another role. I thought he did a pretty good job in this movie... just wish it was a better movie for him to shine in. Over-all I would score this movie at about a 5 out of 10 rating. I would say if you are curios about this one... wait and catch it on cable.

For Your Eyes Only, a review by Dragonfire
James Bond is thrust into one of his most riveting adventures in this jam-packed free-for-all of outrageous stunts, passionate encounters and exciting confrontations. Roger Moore portrays Agent 007 with lethal determination in a plot that finds him infiltrating the Greek underworld and racing against time to find a stolen device capable of controlling a fleet of nuclear submarines.
This is a decent addition to the Bond movie series, though it isn't as strong as some of the other movies. There is good action, including more impressive ski scenes. The main villain isn't anything special. The women were fine. Thankfully James resisted Bebe. She was entirely too young for him. Her being interested in James wasn't as believable. I like the movie, but it is just sort of an average Bond movie. The best part of the movie is the theme song.
I still have to watch the extras and I'll get a review typed up to post on Epinions eventually.
