The newest Bond film is good, not great, but has hints of good things to come.


As I mentioned in my film review, this is a well-done and important film.  However the film could have used a touch more suspense and action.  Nonetheless, it was an interesting and entertaining film, one that I enjoyed watching.

Anyone see it? Have thoughts?

In my recent review, I noted that the film didn't connect on several levels, But that doesn't mean that there weren't upsides to film as well.

Suddenly Last Summer

There are so many new films that come out monthly, that it is often difficult to find the time to explore old films. However, there are some great older films worth your time, and will address them in this blog from time to time. This week let's talk about Suddenly Last Summer, starring Katherine Hepburn, Liz Taylor and Montgomery Clift.

Lets Talk Film

If you love films, follow my blog where I provide reviews and hope to start getting members/ followers to engage in conversations about their favorites.  

Marvel Comics Films

Of all the Marvel Entertainment Films that have been made to date, Hulk, Blade, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Thor, Ghost Rider, Dare Devil, The Punisher, Spider Man, Captain America, Iron Man, and the Avengers,  which was the best film, and which were the best characters?

Personally, the original Spider Man lifted the genre to a new level, but I liked Iron Man the best, mostly because I thought the casting was superb -- it was a dream role for Robert Downey Jr.  Agree or disagree?

The most under-rated, or least talked about character however, seems to be Black Widow, and I thought Scarlett Johansson was great: sexy, smart and tough.  Agree or disagree?

TRIVIA QUESTION: what character in the Avengers hasn't had their own movie, but was introduced in one of the prior listed films?  Who was it and what film did they appear in?

Yes, I'm asking for you to post comments!

The Bourne Legacy

The Bourne Legacy is Smart, Fast and Furious!
In this latest follow up to the Bourne trilogy, Jason (Matt Damon) is absent, though mentioned. It is because he is still at large — spotted in New York though again eluding capture –, and that Pamela Landy (Joan Allen who appears in a cameo) is talking about Treadstone to a Senate committee, that the current crop of morally-bankrupt, overly paranoid intelligence agency task masters (led by Edward Norton as Retired Col. Eric Byer, USAF) are in panic, and the basis that sets the Boourne Legacy into motion.

The Amazing Spider-Man

In the reboot of the Marvel Comics Spider-Man franchise, the director Marc Webb strives for a more serious and edgy look to distinguish it from its predecessor [that starred Toby McGuire].

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

The most good-feel uplifting film that I’ve seen in recent memory. The script was elagently simple, and also profound in it’s raw truths about growing older; the realization that life evolves, and that you’re never too old to be surprised.


The new film staring Leonardo DiCaprio is a BIG idea.  Too big! 

Breakfast on Pluto

Based on the McCabe novel The Butcher Boy, Breakfast On Pluto is the story of Patrick Brady; a young man who is astutely aware at an early age that he is different. Yet he never seems to carry that as a burden. Abandoned as a baby in his small Irish hometown, he is left on the steps of a priests’ living quarters and then placed into a foster home.


Can a road trip movie with a transgender character rise above expectations?
