You Only Live Twice, a review by Dragonfire
A disaster in space pushes humankind towards World War III, and only James Bond can prevent it in this magnificent, pull-out-all-the-stops movie spectacular. Sean Connery returns as Agent 007, who travels to Japan to stop the evil SPECTRE organization and its diabolical leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Donald Pleasance), from instigating global warfare from his massive headquarters in an inactive volcano.
I still enjoyed this movie, though there were some slow parts that didn't work as well for me. I also thought it seemed obvious that Connery was tired of playing Bond since he didn't seem to ..connect with the part as well as he has before. This was to be Connery's last movie as Bond and the movie was based on the last Bond book written by Ian Flemming before his death. I enjoyed the parts dealing with SPECTRE and Blofeld. Some other things, like how Bond was supposed to be disguised as a Japanese man, just didn't work. He didn't even remotely look like a Japanese man. I also didn't care for the women in this movie that much. There just wasn't anything special about them.
Overall it was still an entertaining Bond movie, but not one of my favorites.
I did post a review on Epinions if anyone is interested.

D.E.B.S., a review by Tom

Sultry crime boss Lucy Diamond (Jordana Brewster, The Fast and the Furious) is back in the states and the D.E.B.S. – an elite team of paramilitary collage co-ed superspies – are hot on her trail. But when their top agent, gorgeous Amy Bradshaw (Sara Foster, The Big Bounce), mysteriously disappears after coming face to face with the attractive young villainess, the D.E.B.S. begin a full-scale search for Lucy's secret lair, never suspecting that Amy may not want to be rescued after all, in this smart and sexy spy spoof.
My Thoughts:This has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. I never get tired watching this movie. When I first heard about it, I know that it is a lesbian love story. I was vary at first when I saw the cover, but this is actually a really fun love story set in a spy-spoof background. This movie never takes itself seriously and I think it some great one-liners.
The growing relationship between the two girls is fun to watch. Jordana Brewster is simply beautiful as Lucy Diamond. Also Jill Ritchie as Janet is great. She has all the best lines.

"Due South" marathon, a review by addicted2dvd
Another really good episode. I liked the story and I especially liked the guest appearance of Leslie Nielson. He did a fine job. As Tom said... it is a more serious role for him... but yet he still maintains some of the wackiness that we all know and love him for.
