    The James Bond Rewatch: Current Movie - SPECTRE

    in Movies Discussion on 16 April 2020

    Quantum of Solace Naff song, generic opening sequence. Found this very short, I did like the continuation of the storyline from Casino Royale but its a very bland film with a weak villain. Olga is a good Bond girl. Being generous with 6/10 Skyfall Liked the song, opening sequence brilliant. New Moneypenny and Q are welcome additions. Bardem is brilliant as the villian. A lovely...

    With them being more recent I'll be keeping my Craig reviews short. Casino Royale A brilliant opening scene shot in black and white, followed by a wonderful credits sequence accompanied by a fantastic track by Cornell. The first quarter is enjoyable enough but it really gets going once in Montenegro. From here it's difficult to take your eyes off, no Bond film has had this kind of suspense...

    The best decade for horror films

    in Movies Discussion on 28 March 2020

    1970's and 80's would certainly have some of the best iconic films. But in terms of actual scares, I'd go with 2010's. Go with 1990's as being the worst of the last 50 years. ...

    S.Peelman said: Casino Royale has also been my favourite. Coincidentally they're showing the Craig movies on tv here, which means (because I physically have all the other ones) that I could've participated in this from the beginning. If only I knew. :-P More than welcome to join in, even if its only for a few films. The delay for latest film means theres plenty of time to catch up! ...

    Die Another Day Opening credits are awful – a very music video style sequence.  The theme tune, its certainly a divisive one, people either love it or really hate. I’m actually ok with it even if it doesn’t fit the film and led to Madonna’s awful cameo.So I'm not actually going to review any further, this is film is so bad it's not even worthy of it.I'll just note...

    Veknoid_Outcast said: Scores updated to this point. Heads up, you missed Darwin's View To A Kill score. So tonight: The World is Not Enough It’s a long opening sequence starting in Bilbao and ends in the Thames, the action scenes in the boat are very good. Theme song isn’t anything special, I like Garbage but its an average track at best. The entire first hour is...

    Tomorrow Never Dies The opening scene feels a little drawn out. Its good to see Geoffrey Palmer and Judi Dench together, and an introduction to Colin Salmon who I always liked (as basically a stand in for the unavailable Kitchner as Tanner), its good they kept him on. But the action sequence is just a bit bland. Theme song is unmemorable, its very not in the Cheryl Crow style and that probably...

    Licence To Kill ***Never seen this one before*** Opening scene is a bit far fetched. It good to have David Heidison back as Felix, he’s been the best amongst a bunch of middling rivals in the Felix role. Theme song is ok, Gladys Knight has an amazing voice but the track lets her down.Great cast of 1970’s and 80’s supporting players – Everitt McGill, Frank McRae, Grand L...

    The Living Day Lights (***Never seen this one before.***) I really liked the opening training mission scene in Gibraltar. The theme tune is ok, not quite on a par as View to A Kill but another nice 80’s New Wave track. Not fussy on the new Moneypenny, seems a bit on the young side for the role? Now Felix Leiter has been played 5 other actors and never more than one film each, none have...

    Darwinianevolution said: I just saw "For Your Eyes Only". Or how it was probably conceived "The Bond crew take a Mediterranean trip". But first, the beginning... why that opening? It starts with Bond visiting the grave of his deceased wife, then he's called in for a supposed emergency and, once he goes in an helicopter, it turns out that Blofeld has boobytrapped the vehicle and is...

    A View to a Kill Ski scenes aren’t anything new, looked a lot better in FYEO. Great theme tune by Duran Duran. Bond and Moneypenny really look like they should be taking retirement. Patrick Macnee as Sir Godfrey! 😊 A third star from The Avengers making an appearance (fourth if you count Joanna Lumley from The New Avengers. Very nice. The taxi driver in Paris is almost as bad an...

    Octopussy ***Never seen this one before.*** Not convinced by the opening scene with the jet. Just a series of clichés. The theme song is perfect… for a naff 1970’s British sitcom about two Middle Age divorcees getting together much to the disapproval of their adult children. Awful, never even heard of Rita Coolridge before. 009 dressed as a clown getting chased by identical twins… err ok… at...

    For Your Eyes Only***Never seen this one before.***Not fussy on the song, and don’t like how the title sequence has Sheena Easton singing, makes it feel like its just a music video.Opening “Blofeld” scene is terrible. I get the reasons behind it due to the dispute but it is embarrassing. The storyline to this is more of a realistic spy thriller. Topol and Julian Glover make good...

    Moonraker They giveth and they taketh away! So after a couple of duds: DAFE, LALD, TMWTGG we got the brilliant The Spy Who Loved Me. At the end of that they promised Bond would return in For Your Eyes Only. Then Star Wars was released! Now I’m a big sci-fi fan and if it wasn’t for Star Wars then the Alien script probably would never have been picked up. But there was a slew of atrocious Star...

    The Spy who loved me One of the most audacious openings, I’d say the sky jump is probably only trumped by Goldeneye’s damn jump for the opening stunt. Brilliant song from Carly Simon, the title screens though… It used to be silhouettes now there’s clear nudity everywhere! The use of classical music for the shark attack and the brilliant scene were the Jurgen's base rises from the ocean are...

    The Man with the Golden Gun.This has to be the worse Bond theme tune ever. Just a bunch of embarrassing innuendo lines and it's poorly sung by Lulu. Title credits nothing special, especially off the back of impressive Live and Let Die.Other than Scaramanga/Christopher Lee this would be quite unmemorable. Its the most boring I've seen so far, very little to discuss hence the short review. The...

    Live and Let DieGreat song, probably the only theme tune that has truly transcended into pop culture and regular airplay. Opening credits are good.I like the Blaxploitation feel to it. Its of its time but kudos to having a largely black cast, especially seeing its only Quarrel in Dr No who’s been a significant black character so far. I can’t help thinking that as the main Bond girl,...
