Didn’t feel I had the sway to start a new James Bond thread, so I thought I’d post this here. The Guardian has the 1st SPECTRE Review.
Now, I have thought this since Daniel Craig’s second Bond film, but it raised my eyebrows and will no doubt be a topic of debate.
Is this Craig’s last hurrah as Bond? His somewhat tetchy remarks in interviews preceding this movie – indicating a readiness to quit – oddly mirror the tetchy media comments that greeted the news of his casting almost 10 years ago. Craig showed they were wrong: and I hope he carries on now. He is one of the best Bonds and an equal to Connery. That great big handsome-Shrek face with its sweetly bat ears has grown into the role.October 23, 2015 at 6:28 pm #13600
New Bill Murray movie got a scathing review from Ty Burr. Half a star.October 23, 2015 at 7:36 pm #13604
I got two tickets to a sneak preview of the movie about the Globe ratting out the pedophile priests. Panel discussion after. At Coolidge Corner — only after grabbing them did I realize it’s 11:00 in the morning (on Wed 10/28). Anyone have a use for them? I can email them. Free.October 23, 2015 at 7:36 pm #13605

It sucked. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. If I was from Chicago I’d have thought it sucked. Public Enemies, basically which was ok but nothing great.
Watched it tonight. I feel like it’s too strong to say it sucked, but man, there was absolutely nothing special about it either.
No directorial style to it. I guess Depp was good, but the makeup job was so distracting at times, it completely takes you out of the movie. I thought Edgerton was terrible, and pretty much everyone else was irrelevant, especially the Flemmi guy. Seems like a waste of a story.October 24, 2015 at 11:50 pm #13666
Watched it again last night at home and came here to say I liked Edgerton’s performance. Definitely liked the movie better the second time which is surprising because the rewatchability is for shit.November 2, 2015 at 2:47 pm #15784

Laugh if you must, but there’s a movement on the interwebs (Reddit) to re-evaluate the purpose, presence, and ultimate importance of Jar Jar Binks.
I knows, he was even more annoying than the Ewoks. But check out this analysis. Can’t say that it doesn’t make a twisted sort of sense.
If it doesn’t show in color, the link is the word “analysis”November 3, 2015 at 9:12 am #15884
Jar Jar Binks as Keyser Soze?
Mind officially blown.November 12, 2015 at 12:33 pm #17420
I saw Bridge of Spies. Thought it was real good. Nothing too thought provoking, but just entertaining. Also thought the sets were terrific recreating that era.November 13, 2015 at 1:26 pm #17671
My four year old sat through all of the Peanuts movie last weekend. That alone makes it pretty good.November 30, 2015 at 1:52 pm #21554
if Stallone doesn’t win best supporting actor there should be an investigation. (maybe Tom Hardy is as good in the Revenant…he won’t be better)November 30, 2015 at 2:28 pm #21581

Same with my three year old. But his dad might have dozed off for a minute.November 30, 2015 at 9:37 pm #21658
Loved Creed. Stallone is great, and Michael B. Jordan is perfect.December 1, 2015 at 3:06 pm #21794
Also, check out a movie called Mississippi Grind, which I just rented On Demand just because Ben Mendelsohn from Bloodlines was in it playing another degenerate.December 1, 2015 at 3:17 pm #21798
Does he only play a degenerate? Killing me Softly too.December 1, 2015 at 5:08 pm #21849
I saw him in a submarine movie with Jude Law. He kills a Russian and starts a bunch of problems.December 1, 2015 at 8:17 pm #21881
Sorry, Killing Them Softly. Georgie Higgins not Bobbi Flack, Danny. Both the greatest.December 3, 2015 at 9:11 am #22137
Okay, that new Superman v. Batman trailer doesn’t completely suck.December 3, 2015 at 9:59 am #22150

Wouldn’t Superman already know who Batman is? He has x-ray vision.December 3, 2015 at 10:04 am #22155
Lead lined mask? </1 second fanwank>December 3, 2015 at 10:06 am #22156
I like that Lex Luthor and Mark Zuckerberg are basically the same character.December 3, 2015 at 10:09 am #22157
How far is Gotham from Metropolis?
Is it like NY to LA, or NY to Philly?December 3, 2015 at 10:42 am #22160
I’m starting to fear that the new Star Wars may suck. I hope I am wrong.December 3, 2015 at 10:44 am #22161
Why? Don’t make a lens flare joke, or I’m coming over there and boxing your ears.
