    No Time to Die

    ★★★★½

    Here's the deal. I wasn't a James Bond fan before this binge I went on. But I am now. And Daniel Craig is without a doubt - James Bond, so I wanted him to have a deserving finale. I wasn't sure what I wanted. But I got it.

    The best part of the series for me has been the emotional Journey of Bond. It's what makes Casino Royale so devastating, Quantum tolerable, Skyfall a masterpiece, and Spectre worthy of a…

    This is the one I was excited for. It's also the only James Bond film I had seen before this binge for No Time To Die, and that allowed to have some idea why I was excited.

    It's Bond at its best here. Roger Deakins needs no introduction, but he takes the cinematography into the real of intentional art, not just required coverage. The edit is right there with him with some of the smoothest transitions. J and L cuts…

    Me to my wife: "what is your review for Paddington? I'll use that instead of writing one myself this time."
    My wife: "5"
    Me: "well like what would you say about it?"

    "He always knew that to raise the emotional stakes, the journey into the dream world also had to be a journey into Cobb's past." - Tom Shone The Nolan Variations

    "Nolan November" as I've been calling this month over on the podcast is all about my love for Christopher Nolan. That love started with Inception.
    I remember sitting at lunch with friends talking about the film, seamed like the big take away was "it's a film you really have to…
