    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.

    http://www.theguardian.com/film/2015/oct/21/spectre-review-james-bond-is-back-stylish-camp-and-sexily-pro-snowden

     

    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.

    New Bill Murray movie got a scathing review from Ty Burr. Half a star.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    6 Billion Dollar Man starring Mark Wahlberg announced. Blech

    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”

    Jar Jar Binks as Keyser Soze?

    Mind officially blown.

    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.

    My four year old sat through all of the Peanuts movie last weekend. That alone makes it pretty good.

    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)

    Same with my three year old. But his dad might have dozed off for a minute. :lol:

    Loved Creed. Stallone is great, and Michael B. Jordan is perfect.

    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.

    Does he only play a degenerate?  Killing me Softly too.

    I saw him in a submarine movie with Jude Law.  He kills a Russian and starts a bunch of problems.

    Sorry, Killing Them Softly.  Georgie Higgins not Bobbi Flack, Danny.  Both the greatest.

    Okay, that new Superman v. Batman trailer doesn’t completely suck.

    Wouldn’t Superman already know who Batman is? He has x-ray vision.

    I like that Lex Luthor and Mark Zuckerberg are basically the same character.

    How far is Gotham from Metropolis?

    Is it like NY to LA, or NY to Philly?

    I’m starting to fear that the new Star Wars may suck. I hope I am wrong.

    Why? Don’t make a lens flare joke, or I’m coming over there and boxing your ears.   :lol:
