The Sixth Sense, a review by Tom

Hollwood superstar Bruce Willis (Armageddon, The Siege) brings a powerful presence to an edge-of-your-seat supernatural thriller that critics are calling one of the nest movies of 1999. Dr. Malcom Crowe (Willis) is a distinguished child psychologist haunted by the painful memory of a disturbed young patient he was unable to help. So when he meets Cole Sear (Hale Joel Osment - Forrest Gump)... a frightened, confused eight-year-old with a similar condition... Dr. Crowe seeks to redeem himself by doing everthing he can. Nonetheless, Malcolm is unprepared to learn the truth of what haunts Cole: terrifying, unwanted visits from the restless inhabitants of the spirit world. With a riveting intensity you'll find thoroughly chilling and utterly unforgettable, the discovery of Cole's incredible 6th sense leads them both to mysterious and unforeseeable consequences.

My Thoughts:
I haven't watched this movie in ten years (I cannot believe I have been collecting DVDs for this long now). This movie is still strong. It is still this director's best work. For some reason I enjoy this movie more after I knew the twist. When I first watched it many years ago, I thought it an okay movie until the ending put a new perspective on everything and then watched it a second time. It is fun to watch this movie with that knowledge and notice things which you didn't before.
What the movie really helped is the strong performance by Haley Joel Osment. Imagine they would have had the casting director of Star Wars: Episode I and we would have gotten Jake Llyod for this role (both movies came out around the same time). Shudder!

Everything or Nothing, a review by GSyren

Everything or Nothing (5-039036-058704)
United Kingdom 2012 | Released 2013-01-28 on DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
94 minutes | Aspect ratio Anamorphic 1.78:1 | Audio: English Dolby Digital 5.1
Directed by Stevan Riley

My thoughts about Everything or Nothing:
James Bond is a phenomenon. I'm old enough to have experienced this phenomenon from its start. In its cinematic form, that is. I had not read any James Bond books before I saw the first Bond films. But I soon rectified that. I have seen the Bond films many times over, but I have not re-read any of the books since the 1960's, so I'm really much more familiar with the movie Bonds.

By its name, you'd think that Everything or Nothing was all about the movie Bonds. After all, that is what the "EON" in EON Productions stands for. But fortunately this documentary details a lot more than that. We get a lot of info about Bond's creator, Ian Fleming, and also about Kevin McClory who collaborated on the story on which Fleming based Thunderball. McClory subsequently got the remake rights to the story, and remade it as Never Say Never Again.

The documentary may not uncover any earth-shattering scoops, but it does delivery many interesting tidbits of information in its many interviews. This is certainly a worth-while watch for any Bond fan.
I rate this title

Miracles Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd

Miracles Marathon

5. The Bone Scatterer
A teenager's nightmares seem to lead to the deaths of those around him, prompting Paul to pay him a visit. Upon his arrival, Paul is concerned about the behavior of the boy's controlling father and tries to figure out the disturbing truths about this family before more lives are lost.

Guest Stars:
Michele Greene
Christopher Marquette
John Walcutt
Matthew Newton

My Thoughts:
While watching this one I kept thinking I know this teen from somewhere. About half way through the episode I remembered where I knew him from. Christopher Marquette is one of the main stars of the TV Series Joan of Arcadia which lasted for 2 years. Another series I enjoy but haven't watched in a while. It is a good story. Very entertaining. Though I did find it somewhat predictable. Even though it went in the direction I thought it would... that didn't take away from the story.

My Rating:
