Tenet Review: Nolan's Latest Is Overlong, Boring And Exhausting Action Thriller

Tenet Review: Nolan’s Latest Is Overlong, Boring And Exhausting Action Thriller

Tenet is a big, ambitious, complex, and original, but also overlong, boring, confusing, and exhausting narrative puzzle with a mediocre script and no character development. While you can’t deny craftsmanship on a technical level, Tenet is a movie you can’t engage emotionally. In the end, I just didn’t care about the characters or what’s happening in the movie.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service Review: The One With George Lazenby Where Bond Gets Married

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service Review: The One With George Lazenby Where Bond Gets Married

While not being the best or most popular entry in the series, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is one of the most faithful adaptations of source material and a solid Bond movie that tries a little more realistic and a different approach than his immediate predecessors, focusing more on telling an actual story instead on gadgets and action set pieces but unfortunately, a final result is a mixed bag.

You Only Live Twice Review James Bond The One With Blofeld And Secret Volcano Lair

You Only Live Twice Review: The One With Blofeld And Secret Volcano Lair

You Only Live Twice is a standard Bond flick. You got a villain with a nefarious plan bigger than life, secret underground lair, exotic locations, over-the-top action and Bond seducing pretty women, although YOLT has some of the least interesting Bond girls. Not the best Bond movie but also not the worst in the series.

Slice Of Life Review: Short SF Movie Set In Blade Runner World

Slice Of Life is a solid short SF film set in a Blade Runner world. Made the old school way relying on miniatures and practical effects instead of the use of CGI, the final result is actually a very good looking movie that could put to shame much more expensive Hollywood movies. Unfortunately, Slice Of Life resembles Blade Runner only visually as it doesn’t tackle any of the themes covered in Blade Runner or its sequel.

Thunderball Review: The One With Big Underwater Battle

Thunderball Review: The One With Big Underwater Battle

Known for its pretty innovative and well-made underwater fight scene, the fourth 007 big-screen adventure is, unfortunately, an overlong, boring, and ridiculous action movie without memorable villains and with dull action sequences.

Goldfinger Review: The One That Set Template For The Series

Goldfinger Review: The One That Set Template For The Series

Goldfinger, third Connery’s Bond movie, improved on a formula from its predecessors, introduced all of the series trademarks and set a template for every future Bond movie. With a bigger budget than two previous movies in the Bond franchise, Goldfinger had it all. Best 007 movie with Sean Connery and one of the best in the series.

From Russia With Love Review: One Of The Best Bond Movies In The Series

From Russia With Love is an improvement on every level from Dr. No. It was a first Bond film with the musical title sequence and featured the first appearances of Q and Blofeld. Although it had a bigger budget than Dr. No, From Russia With Love is more of a thrilling Cold War thriller than a big-budget action spectacle.

Dr. No Review: James Bond Movie That Started It All

Although not the best Bond film and not as amusing or thrilling as some of the best entrances in the franchise, Dr. No is a solid action thriller and introduction to agent 007 with great casting choice in Sean Connery for the lead and iconic theme song but that feels outdated with poor and unconvincing action scenes.
