Carroll's DVD Review #21

THE HOLY GIRL

16-year-old Amalia looks to save the soul a middle-aged doctor.

The Holy Girl is Holy Crap on a cracker. I fell asleep. LOL I tried to watch it again a few days later, ended up knocking out some more zzz's. LOL So, if you're looking for a good movie to put you asleep, perhaps you are suffering from insomnia, then pick up this movie! It's better than pills and hypnosis.

Being a French film, I was under the impression this was supposed to be a sensual movie. And in certain circles, it is. Mercedes Moran is very beautiful to look at and very sexy. Think of it as foreplay before sex ... minus the sex .... and there lies the frustration of it all. LOL Foreplay is great if the sex follows soon afterwards, however, it's just a pain in the "you know whats" if there is no release. Trust me, with this movie, there is no release.

My rating ... I will give it 2 stars. (One for Mercedes and one for the fact that a good nap goes a long way. And I had two good naps with this one.)

AMAZING GRACE


This 2006 release was pretty good. The idealist William Wilberforce maneuvers his way through Parliament, endeavoring to end the British transatlantic slave trade.

Based on actual events, I found myself drawn to the story right from the start. I love historical movies when they are accurate in its portrayal and not Hollywooded-up and hyped with CG robotics. I have always said that a good story with good writing and great acting goes a long, long way. This movie has it!

Make you children watch the film. watch it with them and you have an entertaining evening that will also include a little education too.

My rating .... let's roll with 8 stars on this one. (And as always mostly the case, you can find it in the bargain bin) Great deal all the way around!
