Live and Let Die, the eighth film in the series produced by Eon Productions and the first one with Roger Moore as James Bond is, unfortunately, one of the franchise’s worst entries.
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 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 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.
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.
Second directorial effort from screenwriter Taylor Sheridan is a very good thriller with a good story, script and dialogues, well-written characters, very good performances from the actors, beautiful but depressing landscapes and some unexpecting bursts of violence.
Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy successor to cult original and very expensive R rated movie that is more an art movie masked as Hollywood SF.
Mother! really is a different movie, an experience that is sometimes engaging and sometimes annoying and exhausting; a movie that tests the patience of the audience.
Get Out is an original movie with an interesting story and very good atmosphere.
Nocturnal Animals is a very good, stylish, thrilling and interesting thriller that’s different than most movies coming out today.
