I’m Thinking Of Ending Things Review: Breaking Up With Reality https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/im-thinking-of-ending-things-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/im-thinking-of-ending-things-review/#respond Mon, 28 Sep 2020 13:25:10 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3359 Netflix delivers a pleasant surprise for indie film lovers with Charlie Kaufman's I’m Thinking of Ending Things. While the movie might be appealing to some, but also a little too overbearing for others, I’m Thinking of Ending Thing deviates from the standard Netflix formula and ends up being one of the most unique films we’ve seen on the platform so far.

Diamonds Are Forever: Worst James Bond Movie In The Series https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/diamonds-are-forever-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/diamonds-are-forever-review/#comments Wed, 23 Sep 2020 19:56:29 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3345 Diamonds Are Forever is a barely watchable, poorly acted, dull, cheap mess of a movie that doesn’t even feel like a Bond movie with one of the worst villains in the history of cinema. Just skip it.

Tenet Review: Nolan’s Latest Is Overlong, Boring And Exhausting Action Thriller https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/tenet-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/tenet-review/#respond Sun, 06 Sep 2020 17:02:15 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3307 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.

Bill & Ted Face The Music Review: Nostalgia-Fueled Time Travel Comedy https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/bill-ted-face-the-music-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/bill-ted-face-the-music-review/#respond Sat, 29 Aug 2020 07:58:13 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3264 In what’s been a very atypical year, it seems fitting for atypical movies to be released. Such is the case of Bill & Ted Face The Music, the final entry in the Bill & Ted trilogy. It has just the right amount of nostalgia to keep you interested if you were already a fan of the franchise but does very little to attract new fans or to stand as its own independent movie.

Palm Springs Review: Charming Rom-Com With Time-Loop Twist https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/palm-springs-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/palm-springs-review/#respond Mon, 24 Aug 2020 01:49:30 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3076 While Palms Springs is far from perfect, this rom-com with a "stuck in time loop" twist is a clever, funny, and well-written movie with two charming and likable leads that have real chemistry.

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service Review: The One With George Lazenby Where Bond Gets Married https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/on-her-majestys-secret-service-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/on-her-majestys-secret-service-review/#respond Tue, 18 Aug 2020 01:42:47 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3031 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: The One With Blofeld And Secret Volcano Lair https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/you-only-live-twice-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/you-only-live-twice-review/#respond Mon, 10 Aug 2020 10:10:23 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3019 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 Review: Tom Hanks Fights U-Boats In This Mediocre WWII Action Movie https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/greyhound-review/ https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/greyhound-review/#respond Sat, 08 Aug 2020 01:53:24 +0000 https://www.shakennotstirredmovies.com/?p=3011 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.
