    1917

    ★★★★★

    Every now and then a director has the wrong idea, makes a mistake, casts the wrong person, and… a bad film is made. Sam Mendes did not make one when he made 1917.

    From the casting of relatively unknown leads, to the scheme of shooting this film in one seemingly unbroken take, Sam Mendes has crafted a masterpiece.

    He took us on this journey with these two men, and we never cut away—when they are scared we are scared, when…

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service

    ★★★★

    On Her Majesty’s Secret Service has a lot of firsts!

    It marks the first time James Bond was recast, and It is also the only film in which George Lazenby plays the secret agent, and it is the first time our leading man falls in love with his Bond girl—and oh, what a Bond girl!

    It is not unbelievable that Bond could fall in love with Tracy (played by the dazzling Diana Rigg), the daughter of an organized crime boss,…

  • You Only Live Twice

    You Only Live Twice

    ★★

    You Only Live Twice is Sean Connery’s goofy Bond film. Don’t get me wrong—this movie has a great premise, and does finally reveal SPECTRE’s leader Blofeld, played by Donald Pleasenceit’s just… whenever they were presented with making an interesting choice, they went with a weird one.

    Like, the opening is great with Bond’s fake death and all, but then the plot kind of loses itself. The most ridiculous things to me though were James Bond in Asian face, and the army of “stealthy” ninjas just plowing things down very loudly with machine guns.

    Not a fan of this one.

    No Time to Die

    ★★★★

    No Time to Die marks a first in James Bond history (as far as I can remember, as I'm still re-watching the series) in that it brings his story to an end. And it is fitting that it is Daniel Craig's final outing as the MI6 assassin as we've been following his career from the start.

    When they decided to reinvent Bond as a younger, harder, and more real character in Casino Royale we meet him as he completes his…

  • Thunderball

    Thunderball

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Thunderball kicks off with James Bond already on the job, and unbeknownst to him, he's already in the sights of the terrorist organization SPECTRE.

    It's been a couple of movies since we've seen Number One and the gang, and this time his henchman is Number Two, Largo (played by Adolfo Celi)--and I'm glad to see SPECTRE back in the series--it felt like a world of possibilities left untouched after their last appearance in Dr. No.

    Sean Connery is back again…
