My Thoughts:
I always enjoyed this Bond movie. It was one of the first I have ever watched. It was the first I watched in the cinema. Until then I never really bothered to watch any Bonds. One of the main reasons for watching it was Teri Hatcher. At the time "Lois & Clark" was on TV and I was a big fan of the show.
But now I must admit, that Michelle Yeoh was the better Bond girl in this movie. She kicked ass while looking hot doing so.
While I am a big BMW fan, it does not fit into Bond movies. Especially if such a common car like the series 7 is used. It dates much more than if a more exotic car is used. The next movie's BMW Z8 was the only one of Bond's BMWs, which is exotic enough for a Bond movie, but sadly that one had only little screen time.

My Thoughts:

I had some hope for a decent movie when I pulled this one out... as it had a couple decent actors in it. But unfortunately they really had nothing to work with here. It is a story line that had potential.. but they just ruin what interesting story line they had with unwanted and unneeded narration. Most the time basically telling us what we already know by watching the picture on the screen. The writing was off for this film... it felt like we were watching a '50s Sci-Fi film made in the mid '70s! This film is only about 70 minutes... and I had a hard time making it through it. First I was fighting off falling asleep. Then I found myself more interested in looking at facebook on my phone then I was the TV screen. Don't bother with this one!

Miracles Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Miracles Marathon

3. The Patient
Paul's investigation into the link between paranormal abilities and disease takes a very personal turn when he develops a relationship with a noted scientist's daughter.

Guest Stars:
Clarence Williams III
Jade Carter
Gina Ravera

My Thoughts:
I liked this one. It is an interesting story. Has enough suspense to  make you not want to look away from the screen the entire episode. Clarence Williams III has become a right familiar face to me. He seems to appear in several movies and shows that I have.

My Rating:
