James Bond - Octusmurf 8/10

Oldie but goodie, and Netflix just got a load of Bond movies  :woohoo:

Octosmurf!  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Swear filter aside,that,For Your Eyes Only and View To A Kill were the better Roger Moore movies

Meaningless rant about James Bond in...

...3...

...2...

...1...

Personally I think “the spy who loved me” was the best James Bond film with Roger Moore.

“View To A Kill” biggest problem is that Roger Moore is just too old in the movie, if my memory serves me right; Roger Moore was in his late 50s during the shooting of the film.
With that said; I agree that “View To A Kill” is still a great movie.

Even though the James Bond films that Roger Moore starred in are a product of their time, and the 1970s to early 1980s were a different time. Roger Moore still remains one of my favorites who played James Bond, a long with Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan.

I’m not saying I think “Die Another Day” was a good movie, but “Goldeneye” still remains my favorite James Bond of all time.

/Rant over

Continue being awesome

Nothing there that I deeply disagree with. Goldeneye is well up on my list of favourite Bond movies.

Just to get the hate flowing: Skyfall is not only the worst Bond movie ever,its just a plain awful movie!

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

Meaningless James Bond rant continued in....

I don’t think “Skyfall” was as bad as “quantum of solace”, which had the worst villain ever in James Bond’s history, namely “Dominic Green”. He was not scary, and was nothing really more than just a scam artist, scamming investors with BS about going green and buying up water resources in areas with drought. Overall he had nothing memorable about him, and might as well just had been another meaningless henchman.

But the main problem with Daniel Craig’s movies is there’s just too much personal crap in them.

- Casino Royale: blah blah about him becoming a 00 Agent and his love for Vesper.
- Quantum Of Solace: basically just a whole movie about his personal hunt for the henchmen who made Vesper betray him.....or something, I don’t even know, not even sure what’s going on in this movie..
- Skyfall: okay here there is a terrorist, but there’s still too much about his past in it and also about how he is getting old
- Spectre: okay (spoiler alert) here his step brother is the overlord bad guy thing of spectre, but again too much personal stuff about not only James Bond but also the Pale king / Mr. white and his daughter

And here’s the thing! ...no one cares about all this personal garbage....James Bond is a spy movie and that’s what we want to see.

There’s none of this personal garbage in any of the previous James Bond films.

Even the ones with Timothy Dalton were a lot more true to the genre. I will say though that even though the James Bond movie staring Timothy Dalton are a bit 80s, I do think that he does give a good performance in them, and I think he did a decent enough job considering he had to take over the role from Roger Moore.

I think this is also why his James Bond movies remains fairly forgotten, because Timothy Dalton’s James Bond movies were right between Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond movies, both of which were a lot bigger and more well known actors at their time, where as Timothy Dalton was never really a big actor.

To be honest, all I really know Timothy Dalton For was the 3 James Bond movies he started in and his fairy small role in Flash Gordon (1980). :think:

 :iagree: All the Bond movies were about bad guys starting wars, blowing up nuclear bombs and so on. Maybe they tried to add a personal touch to Bond in more „realistic“ scenarios, it just did not work at all.

The only Bond movie with Daniel Craig i enjoyed was Casino Royale, since this was basically a remake of a classic. I also like Eva Green, so that helped  :whistle: The rest of the Bond movies with him i watched one time, and that will be it. No need to watch again.

Is there any indication of a new Bond movie, or the new Bond (actor)? Haven‘t heard anything in a while  :dunno:

Not really no... I would actually say that Casion Royal Bond, that just got poisoned and almost dies, then goes back into the casino is very much true to the books. In the books, JB is not particularly skilled at anything*, he is lucky, though and he never gives up. Btw, all those spy gadgets belong to the opposition in the books.

* Maybe except drinking. In Moonraker he drinks on one day something like a bottle of vodka, 2 bottles of champagne and some wine (it's a regular day at the office).

Yeah okay that was quite a poorly formulated sentence.

I meant like; more true to the “spy / secret agent” genre.

I haven’t read the books, but usually if you read the book and watch a movie based of it; you end up really disappointed....well plus, it shouldn’t be a prerequisite to read a book before you can watch a movie anyway.

Speaking of casino royale....let’s not forget that there was also a Casino Royale made in 1967.....actually let’s not; it’s better that remains forgotten, as that was just painful to watch and should never have existed

The Babadook (2014) - 01 / 10

I really don't understand how this movie is so heavily praised by critics and has a 98% on rotten tomatoes?

It is literally just another boogeyman story with the typical cliche storyline of a single mother living alone with her annoying kid in a big old scary house.

...and to add to it all you don't even really get to see "The Babadook" ...just a few shadows and a few dark scenes where you can see some dark almost cartoon like figure move around.

To make matters worse, it's not even scary ...even the easily spooked girl I watched it with; said that she didn't find it scary, and we both agreed that we found the kid to be a constant irritation throughout the whole movie.

I don't care what anyone says, don't watch this movie...it's just garbage. ...Not even the "So bad its good" kind....it really is just garbage!

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) - 05/10

I don’t know what I expected of it, but for what it is; it’s okay. More of a “for fun” movie rather than something you take too seriously, a bit on the cheesy side too.

Not terrible or unwatchable, but but nothing great or memorable either, it’s the kind of movie you only watch one time.

Overall just kind of a “meh” movie.

Eye of the needle (1981) - 7 / 10

It was the only thing that was on last night, so I thought I give it a go.

Even though it is an old movie in terms of Its paste, it still kept me entertained most of the way through.

Apart from a few minor details they managed to get most of the vehicles and other items correct for WW2.

Overall; it wouldn’t be something that I would watch on a regular basis, but not a bad movie.

Inferno (2016) - 04 / 10

I’m giving it a fairly low score because I was just expecting more of it and I feel like they could have done better.

For a movie that is the third installment after; Da Vinci Code and Angles & Demons, it had all the potential but I felt like it could have been better.

1st half of the movie started out pretty epic and was well entertaining, but the all through the 2nd half I was just bored....even though I haven’t read the book, it was just so predictable as to how it would end, that it wasn’t even thrilling at the end.

Not going to post any spoilers, but if you have seen the first two movies; you will know what I mean

Cool as ice (1991) - 01/10

A YouTuber I follow recently reviewed this movie, so I thought I’d try to watch it too....and oh my god is it terrible and cringe worthy!

I don’t even understand why this was made...it’s supposed to make Vanilla Ice look cool, but he is just a total incompetent annoying jerk throughout the whole movie, and all he really does is drive around on his motorcycle and sing and dance....all while trying to get with this one chick....and then there’s some kind of sub plot about some men (who are supposed to be policemen, even though they don’t look or act like policemen) who are after her farther...for some reason...which is never really explained.

So yeah; the guy who is supposed to be cool, is just an incompetent annoying jerk and the plot makes no sense...and there are so many weird and cringe worthy scenes in this movie too.

I really don’t understand why this movie was made.

I mean this is almost like “Starwars holiday special ” kind of bad.

Eragon (2006) - 03 / 10

Don’t know what I was expecting of this movie, but with big names like John Malkovich and Jeremy Irons, I thought it would have something going for it.

But the only one I actually liked and cared about in the whole movie was the dragon.

This is quite possibly the worst performance I have ever seen from John Malkovich as the evil king, his line deliveries are just god awful in this movie, and he feels extremely miscast.

Jeremy Irons did what he could do with what he had to work with, but certainly not his finest work.

It also has Robert Carlyle playing an evil wizard / sorcerer, but he is just not really that convincing in his acting or scary at all.

The main protagonists played by Ed Speleers, who was 17 years old at the time of the recordings; gives a good enough performance as a young and unwise farm boy. But it is his role that also makes him kind of annoying in the movie.

And here’s another problem; he was 17 at the time in the movie and the girl playing “the young princess” was around 30 at the time in the movie, and the age difference is extremely obvious too.

The princess played by Sienna Guillory also gives a good performance for what she had to work with, but she never really got enough screen time to really make you care about character.

Like with Jeremy Irons; Her entire screen time feels extremely rushed, and you just don’t really get attached to their characters at all.

And that’s the thing; the whole movie just feels like you are rushing through it, the whole movie feels like it just takes place in a day.

Again; the only one I really cared about during the whole movie was the Dragon. It gives the most convincing performance and it is voiced by Rachel Weisz who’s voice gives the dragon a very noble and likable character. Which is the only reason for me giving the movie 3 / 10 and not 01 / 10.

But it is yet another movie based on a book, and it just doesn’t really seem to work out to well most of the time they try to make a movie based on a book, sort of like movies based on video games.

I was actually considering watching it, but I decided not to, because I have just never been a fan of Robin Hood in general.

There’s the Walt Disney cartoon from 1973 that I watched and enjoyed as a kid, but every live movie adaptation I have ever watched have always been terrible.

I guess this new 2018 version is no exception?

Dr. No (1962) - 10/10

The first James Bond film is a masterpiece regardless of how you look at it.

Even for a movie that’s 57 years old, it doesn’t feel slow paste or boring at any times.

What I really also is how the henchmen who are not important to the progression of the storyline; are not introduced to the audience (for instance the 3 “blind” men), it may sound silly but it keeps the story limited to the characters that are relevant for the story and makes it a lot easier to follow what’s going on.

James Bond is played by Sean Connery who is IMO spot on perfect for the role of 007, and he played the role perfectly too.

The super villain Dr. No played by Joseph Wiseman, is spot on perfect too. He does a fantastic job at playing this ruthless and stone cold criminal mastermind. So much so; I’d almost say he it one of my favorite Bond villains.

Even Ursula Andress, who was fairly unknown and didn’t have any former acting career, does a great and convincing job at playing this sea shell diving girl.


Overall; an absolute masterpiece of a movie
