    IMO these are the best Bond movies!

    Just felt pointless (so many shots of Theron walking to/from places) and very much a film made by males for males (not spoiling it for anyone who hasn’t seen it by stating specifics), but the level of objectification felt unnecessary and blunt.

    Maybe I was just not in the right frame of mind... lots of other folk seem to love it

    Ugh, that doesn't sound so good, like that's a complaint I have with all of Luc Besson's movies, for example. What about the action sequences?- John Wick is famous for it's beautiful shot action sequences.

    there's a particularly well done hallway fight... but I'd rather re-watch Wick

    In a week? That was fast.

    I love the 3 first James Bond movies, all of them with Connery. The other ones I never liked too much, they look silly. The movies with Craig I just watched the first one.

    before he joined the First Order, Hux was a sheep farmer who started an escort service with a call-girl named Kim he picked up for a grief shag.
    it went pretty much how you would expect (both the shag and the business deal). XD

    there is a some rather dark stuff in this movie (it's called a black comedy, but it's more black than comedy, honestly, but it's Irish, so what do you expect?).
    there are some kittens who meet a terrible end and some sex scenes that are rather uncomfortable.
    honestly, i almost couldn't watch it after the kittens and couldn't stop thinking about them through the whole movie, but when i got to the end, i was glad i hadn't turned the thing off. i'm sure it will haunt me anyway, though.

    overall, the characters are wonderfully awful, vulnerable, and interesting ~ getting to the end was 100% worth it. : D

    I watched The Lion King (2019). The original movie from 1994 is one of my most favorite Disney movies. Even though its message is quite questionable and debatable.

    What can you say about the remake? It's exactly the same story with 95% of the same scenes and dialogue.
    The stuff which they changed or added most often felt bland. In general the movie didn't have the same impact as the original. The scenes I looked forward to felt rushed and soulless.

    The visuals are great. That's out of question. Some shots were breathtaking (at least on the big screen). The animals also look good, except for the hyenas. They look like cartoon characters. Kinda like trolls and orcs from LOTR and Hobbit.

    I definitely prefer the original to the new version. But I hope this new adaptation gets children interested in other classic Disney movies.

    I enjoyed the book but even though it has its moments it's never been one of my favorite Bond movies. I kind of prefer "Never Say Never Again" to be honest, the only thing I find really bad about that one is the music. I'm a Moore guy but when it comes to the official Connery era I love the first 3 but don't feel it as much with the next 3. Especially "You Only Live Twice", I thought it was definitely the worst novel and one of the worst movies until Die Another Day got crapped out and took the crown probably forever.

    Yeah that was my last film too.I gotta say I don’t know if it’s me ( it probably is) with TROS on the brain but I kind of felt some of it was foreshadowing and found a lot of parallels with sequel trilogy. Mufasa saying to Simba everything the light touched was his kingdom except the dark place , the shadowy place , beyond (referencing the elephant graveyard )and how he should never go there. My ears perked up at this ie the beyond.
    Also how Mufasa says to Sarabi “Before the sun rises he’s your son afterwards he’s mine “( gave me Mother Earth and father in heaven vibes and sun being substitute for son)and am sure too in one of the books ( think it’s last shot or the final aftermath book we have a similar scene with Han , leia and baby Ben). All the stuff about Simba and feeling responsible about his father’s death and going into exile until he’s ready to return ( possibly foreshadowing Ben’s fate ?) and the scene with scar and the hyenas ( be prepared ) reminded me of Hux with his starkiller base speech and possible betrayal. Scar saying on pride rock that together he and Simba’s mother Sarabi could have ruled together and she
    Could have been his Queen reminded me that Kylo asked something similar of Rey and Simba saying he’s nobody and scar reminding him of this felt similar to how Rey was told she was this plus all the references to scavengers in Lion king - the vultures that are going to go for Simba , the hyenas and Simba himself becoming a scavenger in exile foraging for food .
    Just so many parallels and possible foreshadowing .Also didn’t the sound editing team say that kylo’s force signature sound in TFA was a cat ? ( lions are cats ) and as a child Ben loved his Tooka dolls ( again cats )in the books . Yeah am probably reaching I know lol as they are made my Disney and bound to cross over in ideas but still
    Interesting.:)

    HAHA You like the unofficial one, that one always bothered me because Connery look past his prime in that one, nonetheless; films are subjective. Someday, I'll buy the entire Bond collection.

    Well Connery was younger than Moore who was still playing Bond at the time, he was showing his age in Octopussy and his appearance in A View To A Kill is usually described as somewhere between Keith Richards and zombie. However Connery's age plays a part in the plot of NSNA (it was the only story about an aging Bond until Skyfall came along), it makes sense and is humorous at times. Meanwhile in AVTAK Roger's age is just the elephant in the room that is never addressed and they just go on acting like he's still the same old James even though he was older than his leading lady's mother. It would have played well into the plot with the aging spy taking on this young/vicious 80s villain. The old vs the new. Having said that I love AVTAK because it was my first Bond movie, my dad took my brother and I to see it in the theater when we were kids and because that movie was my introduction I never really had any preconceived notions about how old Bond should or shouldn't be. In fact it took me a little bit to get used to Dalton because he just seemed too much of a puppy after I had been introduced to the series with Moore's later appearances.

    But yeah, I like NSNA okay. It's the plot of Thunderball, starring the original James Bond, directed by the guy who did The Empire Strikes Back... plus Barbara Carrerra was smokin'. It's got some dumb moments but it's a franchise full of insanely dumb moments. I'll take the silly horse jump over an invisible car, Connery's Japanese makeover or Denise Richards playing a nuclear physicist.

    I still admire AVTAK just brassing right through Moore's age impropriety. It's a fun movie and Roger is lots of fun in it.

    Don't Look Back is on TV right now. I always find the squirm factor of the worlds-apart nature of the press interview scenes with the press to be almost unendurable. It's always amazing to me that people in 1965-66 seem, counterintuitively, more phoney than at any time since.

    A film I should have seen years ago:

    Rurouni_Kenshin.jpg

    This is the new standard (though it's seven years old) for anime adaptation. The fights are perfect, the casting is perfect. It uses original material closely, but grounds it. As someone who watched anime a long time ago, I had a huge smile on my face from beginning to end. And now I am looking forward to the sequels.

    Yes, I had heard that, if they maintain the same standard that’s good news. :)
