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introduction to agent 007 with great casting choice in Sean Connery for the lead and iconic theme song but that feels outdated with poor and unconvincing action scenes.
Birds Of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn Is One More Bad Movie In DC Catalog
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.
Extraction feels like a surprising cousin of John Wick and The Raid – an explosive, thrilling and entertaining action movie with some exceptional action sequences and camera work.
Filled with mediocre performances, bad jokes, bland villains, paper-thin characters, dull action sequences, and soap opera level story, Bad Boys For Life is a dumbest and worst movie of the year so far.
With its non-linear structure, interesting story, memorable characters, funny dialogues, very good soundtrack, excellent performances from the cast and energetic directing style, The Gentlemen is well worth your time. The main problem with The Gentlemen is that Ritchie made this type of movie a couple of times before.
The Disaster Artist is an entertaining, interesting and pretty funny drama/comedy with an excellent performance from James Franco.
Loving Vincent, the first fully painted animation feature, is a solid movie with outstanding visuals.
Well-shot, directed, acted and written, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is an interesting and sometimes funny dark comedy/drama with excellent performances from Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell.
Decent end to new apes trilogy, War of the Planet of the Apes is pretty good drama with outstanding special effects.
Logan is a different superhero movie that stands out from the competition – it is serious, gritty and violent R-rated (SF) action drama in which all parts are very well done. Best superhero movie of the year.
Detroit, a true story about one of the largest riots in United States history, is a well-made drama.
It is a like a crossover between 80’s kids movie like The Goonies or Stand by Me and a light horror movie in which both parts are functioning.
Logan Lucky is nothing new or especially original but it is a well-written and fun heist comedy with likable characters, good performances and very good soundtrack.
A sequel to 2014 surprise hit, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, wants to be crazier, bigger and funnier than the original but unfortunately fails on all levels.
