    Licence to Kill

    ★★★★

    The second and final outing for the best James Bond. There's almost nothing to choose between this and the Living Daylights in quality. This is possibly a bit more focused and serious for the most part but then goes a bit silly at the end.

    Living Daylights is a lighter tone overall but still has a very very sharp Bond.

    Here's he's obsessively focused on revenge which often gets him in severe trouble. His fabulous female companion to have to…

    RoboCop on the big screen!

    It's one of the greatest films ever made obviously.

    I also took note of how even the minor supporting cast are playing an absolute blinder. It's all so believable..

    Plus it's a great straight action film and a brilliant piece of satire. Having your cake and eating it is quite an achievement..

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    In Brief:

    Of course it's a noble thing to have a…

    Gunpowder Milkshake

    In Brief:
    Pretty much what you get if you let the internet make a 'kewl'* movie aping much better directors. Hollow and with honkingly bad dialogue and a pretty poor lead performance from Karen Gillan, but I blame the direction. Lena Heady and Michelle Yeoh almost save it though.

    In full:

    Clearly based around a single concept of what of "John Wick was a girl?" and then an incompetent director is given a lot of money to make it.

    Karen…
