Devoid of any humor, logic, or tension, Army of the Dead is a disaster on almost every level – from Snyder’s direction, tempo, story, script, paper-thin and unlikeable characters, mediocre acting, to Snyder’s laughable tricks like slow motions, and shitty blurry camera effects. On top of that, even action sequences aren’t that well-executed and the movie is boring as hell. Avoid at all costs.
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.
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 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.
Greyhound is watchable but a very mediocre WWII action movie. With no character development and so-so action sequences, Greyhound doesn’t have much to offer. It feels like a TV movie made to watch on rainy Sunday when you don’t have anything better to do.
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.
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, 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 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.
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.
Your opinion about Birds Of Prey will depend on your opinion about Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. I didn’t like her, but even if I did, it is still a movie that desperately wants to be different, weird, and wacky but it fails. It is a colorful cartoon without much to say, with a weak script peppered with ultra-violence.
