The Man with the Golden Gun, a review by Dragonfire




James Bond has been marked for death, and he'll need all his lethal instincts and seductive charm to survive in this action-packed adventure! Roger Moore returns as Agent 007 and faces off in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with assassin Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee). Featuring a wild automobile chase though Bangkok and Bond's stunning confrontation with an entire martial-arts school. 'The Man With the Golden Gun' delivers nonstop excitement!

My Thoughts

This one is entertaining, though a few things didn't work as well for me.  That annoying Sheriff turning up on vacation and going along on the one chase with James didn't work at all for me.  I didn't like the guy in Live and Let Die either.  The character were ok, though none really stood out that much to me.  I agree about expecting Nick Nack to start going on about the plane.  I'm not sure why, but he just didn't seem that ...effective as bad guy to me.  The action was fine and did keep things interesting.  Once again, a beautiful woman ended up running around in a bikini during the final climax.  At least Scaramanga did say he made her wear that to make sure she didn't have any hidden weapons..but still it was a bit stupid.

I still need to watch all the extras.  I'll get to that before I post a longer review on Epinions.

Overall it was an entertaining movie.

The Man with Two Brains, a review by Rich


Man with Two Brains



A wacky brain surgeon, married to a beautiful but coldhearted woman, falls in love with the brain of another lady who has everything he wants... except a body!

Typical zany Steve Martin film, he became rather typecast at this stage of his career, and this is one of his less prestigious attempts. The storyline is ridiculous of course, the filming style and music very late 70's early 80's in style, which dates it considerably. The direction keeps it just on the right side of silly, so it is watchable.
Kathleen Turner is a leading lady I would typically not rate, but I was surprised watching this movie that 20 years ago she was an absolutely stunning voluptious woman, and perfect for the role as the scheming P.T. temptress.
Put your brain to one side and just enjoy the slapstick and whackiness of thisd film to enjoy.

"Friends" Marathon, a review by Rogmeister




Finishing up season one of Friends...

The One Where The Monkey Gets Away--Rachel petsits Ross' monkey Marcel but leaves the apartment door open and the monkey escapes.  This episode has some good moments including an appearance by goofy neighbor Mr. Heckles.

The One With The Evil Orthodontist--Rachel has an encounter with her ex-fiance Barry.  Jennifer Grey guests as Mindy, Rachel's one-time friend who is now Barry's fiance.

The One With Fake Monica--Monica's credit card is stolen and she then realizes that the "fake" Monica is doing everything she wishes she could...so she finds her and becomes friends with her.  This is okay, nothing special in my opinion.

One of these episodes (I forget which one now) has Phoebe going to work temporarily for Chandler where she reveals no one at the office likes Chandler and says "They even do you" and we are introduced to Chandler's unique way of speaking..."Could that report be any later?"  :P
The One With The Ick Factor--Monica discovers that the guy she's dating, who she thought was a senior in college really is a senior...in high school.  Another okay episode which ends with the impending birth of Ross and Carol's son.

The One With The Birth--Yes, it's time for a birth...always a hit on sitcoms.  Things get a bit complicated when Ross, Phoebe and Susan wind up getting locked in a supply room as Carol is about to give birth.  Guest-stars include Leah Remini as a pregnant woman Joey assists. 

The One Where Rachel Finds Out--While Ross is leaving on a trip to China, Chandler lips slip out to Rachel that Ross is in love with her.  This is the season finale and sets the stage for the whole Ross-Rachel situation for seasons to come.  At the end, Rachel is off to the airport to see Ross who is returning from China...not realizing that Ross is not returning alone.
