    A solid film with great, understated acting. Also, the dialogue is heaven to listen to. Will have more thoughts on 11/22

    Spectre 2015

    Spectre starts with a bang but ends with a whimper. While it's tough to top he superb Skyfall, this could have been such a better movie. The plot rambles on and on. I couldn't even tell you why James Bond was on this mission. At least the spectacle was kind of fun. Also, if this is (supposedly) to be Daniel Craig's last appearance as Bond, it wraps everything up.

    Christopher Nolan is one of the most ambitious directors working today in Hollywood. His themes are ambitious. His stories are ambitious. His vision is ambitious Hell, even his tracking shots are ambitious. After a while though, his films could start to feel the same. What makes Interstellar stand out from his other films is the (not so strong) emotional journey.

Méliès was, after all, a magician turned filmmaker who used many of his tricks to create special effects for his films (You've all seen Hugo).

    Alfonso Cuaron is not a Director, but a Magician and Gravity pulls of a spectacular and emotional trick.

    The visual effects are…
