My Thoughts:
After a long break from this marathon finally another review by me. Originally I watched all movies in this marathon with my brother. Even though he still proclaims I should only continue watching with him, he never is in the mood for it when he visits. So I decided to continue without him.
The main thing I was curious about this movie was Sean Connery. I thought he did a good job, but he seems a little emotionless. The actress playing Marnie did a great job though. Overall the movie was enjoyable, but nothing special to warrant rewatching it.

Rating:

Rambo III, a review by Jon


Rambo 3 **
2 out of 5


As a straightforward action movie, they don't come much more fun that Rambo 3. The octane level is definitely set to high and his ruthless despatching of Rushkies is thrilling stuff. But it's all bollocks.

First Blood had a point, something to say. The sequel had more fun, was largely unnecessary, but held onto some dignity. Here, he is a full blown cartoon character. He's still beating up Russians, continuing from the previous outing, so at least there's half an idea continuing the thread and providing a link into someone else's war. It's all tenuous though and then goes completely OTT where he seemingly faces off against an entire battalion.

Good job the Taliban are there to help him.  :devil:

Yes, it's also a bit dated due to current events. It hardly matters actually, but when the movie is already not very good, it's fun to be picky! I can recommend this as a double-bill with Charlie Wilson's War...  :laugh:

Birthday Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Episode Count: 16


Without a Trace: Season 1
Birthday Boy
For his eleventh birthday, Gabe Freedman is going to a baseball game at Yankee Stadium with his father. When the two get separated at the subway station, Bob is convinced he will meet up with his son at the next station, or at the park itself. After being unsuccessful in locating his son, Bob calls in the team who is convinced that the boy was abducted until evidence leads them to believe that Gabe may have run off on purpose.

My Thoughts:
This is a series I never knew of when it originally aired. I bought the first season set blind... I been wanting to pick up season 2 as well but never got the chance yet. Watching this episode makes me want to pick up the second season soon though. It is a very good episode. Of course it helps that I forgot the outcome from the first time I saw it.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
