My Thoughts:

Now this is a movie worthy of the cult status it has achieved.  :bow:

A post apocalyptic world where the survivors scavenge for food while avoiding the likes of mutants and marauders. Vic, a scavenger himself played by a young Don Johnson does his best to get by with his erstwhile companion Blood, a telepathic dog. Vic finds himself drawn to an underground commune of cult like fanatics called Topeka, led by a pasty Jason Robards and the rest of his evil Committee. They tell Vic they want him to impregnate all of their women which he thinks is a dream come true until he discovers their means of extracting his lusty seed.  :laugh:

This is cheesy in all the right ways with a simple plot that is grandly delivered. Thick with ironies, this movie has one of the most memorable endings I've ever seen and having watched this before long ago I almost couldn't wait to get to the end to see it again.  :popcorn:

Never Say Never Again, a review by Rich


Never Say Never Again



In this remake and updated version of the 1965 THUNDERBALL, James Bond (Sean Connery), who has been primarily teaching for the last few years, is quite happily yanked out of semiretirement to deal with the deadly SPECTRE organization's newest plan for the destruction of the planet. (The Bond story line mimics Connery's semiretirement from the role, which he had last played in 1971's DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER.) Agent Number 2, also known as Maximilian Largo (Klaus Maria Brandauer), has managed to steal two cruise missiles armed with nuclear warheads, and Agent Number 1, Blofeld (Max von Sydow), has threatened to explode them in areas with large populations if a huge, and almost impossible, ransom demand from the NATO countries is not met. The film features an excellent gaming battle between Largo and Bond, as well as stunning turns by Barbara Carrera and Kim Basinger. Technically not an offical Bond movie, NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN was released around the same time as OCTOPUSSY, starring Roger Moore.

Looks like a Bond, smells like a Bond, sounds like a Bond, but it isn't a Bond!
Despite the ingredients being similar, they could not quite replicate the winning formula that is 007. Connery does his best to pull the film through, Bassinger was a convincing Bond girl, and the sexy Barbara Carrera raised temperatures especially when dressed as a nurse with long leather boots. There were exotic locations, plenty of action and fights, and I am sure a fairly hefty budget.
But now the negatives and why it cannot be considered in the same breath as the 007 series. The theme tune is weak, the opening titles (minus the sexist girls) are run of the mill, M is a disaster with Edward Fox, Q is basically absent, lack of flirting with Moneypenny, 007's glib remarks lack the typical punch and cheesiness, the action is below par, the effects disappointed several times (notably the missile scenes), distinct lack of gadgets, and a different and inferior feel to the whole production compared to the mainstream Bonds.
Close - but no cigar

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom


     Sabrina: The Teenage Witch: Season One (1996/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

(United States)
Length:525 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround
Subtitles:


Plot:
Pretty teen witch Sabrina Spellman (Melissa Joan Hart) lives with her two otherworldly aunts, Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Zelda (Beth Broderick), along with Salem, their talking black cat (voice of Nick Bakay). The Witches Council long ago ordered her aunts to teach Sabrina witchcraft once she turned sixteen. Now she can be in Paris for lunch...and make it back in time for biology! The show that found its way into the hearts of millions of viewers each week brilliantly combines the supernatural world of magic with the average life of a teenage girl.

Join Sabrina, cute crush Harvey (Nate Richert), best friend Jenny (Michelle Beaudoin), and rival Libby (Jenna Leigh Green) at their favorite pizza hangout, The Slicery. That is, when they aren't frustrating their teacher, Mr. Pool (Paul Feig). Here on DVD for the first time ever are all 24 Season One episodes of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch®!

Director: Robby Benson

I enjoyed this series. Though I never finished watching it. I lost interest after the third season, when my favorite character (Valerie played by Lindsay Sloane) left. But I have all the episodes on DVD and I plan to finish it. I am thinking about watching the fourth season now.
I have seen the series finale though, when it originally aired, out of curiosity.
