    Casino Royale

    ★★★★½

    The Royal Casino is one of the best Bond movies because it captures how global politics actually works. Money washes around the world and people who are clued in find it trivially easy to get rich. But because it's so easy, they get bored of that and start getting involved in schemes to manage the managers. So there is this layer within the rich that includes secret agencies and criminal hierarchies which mostly seems to fight each other and could…

    Honestly enough weird stuff happens in this that it's worth seeing. I would say that this movie is 50% boilerplate and is probably what Bohemian Rhapsody was like with many of the same beats. My audience was 95% old people and that's what they probably wanted. There's also a lot of nods to Black culture to deflect the obvious blue check complaint that he did Black music to make himself wealthy. However, this angle is also initiated with Tom Hanks…

    ★★★

    Okay I admit I enjoyed seeing the dinosaurs run around. It’s a bad movie I will forget tomorrow but some of it was fun. I was irritated at first how much of this is explaining things to move things along and I was sort of like who needs a dinosaur movie explained. Then I was confused and bored enough that I missed the obvious parts. The dinosaurs look uncanny but you get used to it. This movie includes a hyperloop train and if that annoys you then probably skip it.

    This is a bad movie but it was also deeply weird. This is a PG Disney movie and at one point a guy is sifting through the ruins of the Hiroshima atomic bomb explosion crying and saying "They're not worth saving, they're not worth saving." Most of the dialogue is people struggling to explain what is going on and it still doesn't make much sense. Also Kumail got ripped for this and the way he fights is by shooting energy…

    Okay so I messed up... the target age for this movie is about 10 years old... Don't go see this if you are a grown ass man, it is a full blown kids movie. It's strange that a kids movie would have so many guns in it, but gun violence is a real problem in our society and art is a mirror. There are a lot of bit parts for streamers in this, which made me feel bad about myself in a few ways.
