    Spectre 2015

    Watched 21 Nov, 2015

    DVD projection: That's what it looked like. The image looked so bad at the AMC 6 in Burbank that I walked out soon after the main titles and got a refund. The manager claims all their screens are Sony 4k projectors - but this movie looked so washed out. Blacks were far from black.
    The main title sequence was pretty good but this is easily one of the worst Bond songs of all time. It's even worse than "All Time High".

  • Creed

    Creed 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Nov, 2015

    DCP: CREED is not what you're expecting it to be. I was expecting it to be a hybrid ROCKY VII / franchise reboot but this is neither of those things - yet the character of Rocky Balboa is still true to the world of those previous films.
    The movie is slightly too long but because of the final 10 minutes and the message of the film, it's one of those movies you like the more you think about it after…

    I was visiting Los Angeles in 1999 and saw this at a test screening - so I had no idea what movie I was about to see.
    That's my review. I wanted to explain why I saw this movie.

    Tarantino is so good that even Jamie Fox can't ruin this movie.
    Hilarious, bloody, intense, epic. Exactly what you'd expect from a slave movie / Western from Quentin Tarantino. I had high expectations and this film met them. Always a good year when there's a film from this writer/director to remind us how good movies can be - and should be.
