Trailer two for new James Bond movie No Time To Die has been released.

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga; the key cast includes Ana De Armas, Rami Malek, Daniel Craig, Lea Seydoux Lashana Lynch…

Since the original April 2nd, 2020 release date for this movie was scrapped earlier this year, November has felt so far away. But now there’s just over two months left to go. My fingers are tightly crossed that the date doesn’t change again because I’ve been super ready for this for more than a year.

The question of whether Fukunaga’s movie will join Casino Royale (2006) and Skyfall (2012) to be one of my favourite Bond films of all time is yet to be decided. I sure hope it does. Especially since I think it’s official, Ana de Armas is already one of my favourite Bond girls. Plus, Malek looks like a very promising villain indeed.

Rory Kinnear, David Dencik, Billy Magnussen, Ben Whishaw, Lourdes Faberes and Ahmed Bakare also star.

No Time To Die Release Dates: April 2nd 2021 (US & UK)…

KNIVES OUT (2019): The Things I Liked…

As far as murder mystery movies go, I certainly haven’t watched very many and can’t say that they’re my favourite. However, writer / director Rian Johnsons’s Knives Out isn’t a bad one. 

Centred around the sudden death of the patriarch (Christopher Plummer) of an eccentric, combative family, Johnsons’s film kept me engaged throughout. The story and familial tensions kept building and building until its final quite satisfying conclusion.

I enjoyed all the performances including and especially Daniel Craig as private investigator Benoit Blanc. I also rather liked the facial expressions of Jamie Lee Curtis’s character, Linda Drysdale.

Knives Out has humour, clever twists and surprises to keep you locked in till the end.  I say definitely watch it if you like murder mysteries, and Daniel Crag… and the rest of the talented cast which includes LaKeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas and Toni Collette.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Knives Out (2019).


Knives Out is a new drama / mystery starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana De Armes, LaKeith Stanfield and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Directed by Rian Jones of Star Wars – The Last Jedi (2017), the a detective (Craig) investigates the death of the patriarch of an eccentric, combative family…

The interesting cast list is the reason I want to see this. My fingers are crossed. Especially since in Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s recent Murder Mystery (2019) movie, it was the ‘murder mystery’ portion of the film that I found least engaging.

Christopher Plummer, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Riki Lindhome and Raúl Castillo also star.Christopher Plummer,

Knives Out Release Dates: November 27th, 2019 (US); November 29th, 2019 (UK)…

LOGAN LUCKY (2017): New Trailer For Steven Soderbergh Movie Starring Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Adam Driver…

Director Steven Soderbbergh’s new movie is a comedy starring Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Adam Driver and Hilary Swank –  to name just a few. The story centres around two brothers and their attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina…

Such a pleasant surprise to see Daniel Craig’s face in this trailer. I imagine that the impressive cast list for this movie was probably ready to do everything in their power to secure a chance to work with Soderbergh. You know, just in case he decides to retire from films one more time, right after this one.

Katie Holmes, Riley Keough, Katherine Waterston, Sebastian Stan, Katie Holmes, David Denman, and Jack Quaid make up some of the aforementioned impressive stars.

Logan Lucky Release Dates: August 18th, 2017 (US); August 25th, 2017 (UK)…

SPECTRE (2015): The Things I Loved Most…

I’ll start this post by saying that my favourite James Bond film of all time remains the massively thrilling Casino Royale (2006). How does this bode with the fact that this is a post about Spectre? Not exactly very well but not absolutely disastrous either.

As the second Bond film directed by Sam Mendes, Spectre succeeds in providing most, if not all of those wonderful thrills synonymous with Craig’s Bond. Thrills that include great action sequences, beautiful cinematography, style, a wonderful sense of Britishness, great musical score, camera work, dialogue, etc. The only downside is that Casino Royale and Skyfall both do all of those things, just and better.

Overall, I enjoyed Spectre, even though it did feel a little odd without Judi Dench as M.  I won’t be forgetting the very raw and intense fight sequence on the moving train any time soon

There’s also the moment in the beginning where Bond is walking across the rooftop in Mexico City. I just love the music used here and the way it builds up with every step Bond takes towards his target. This is  the moment the famous ‘Bond is back!’ feeling took over; resulting in a prolonged, joyous and silent scream – much to the relief of my fellow cinema goers.

I do wonder though, whether I’d love the rooftop scene as much as I do if Daniel Craig’s physique, especially the way he moves and holds a gun wasn’t so arrestingly appealing? Probably not – and thankfully I know that I never have to find out.

I’m beyond ready for October 16th (UK release date). Available in the US November 6th, 2015.

Happy Spectre 🙂

At last, the full Spectre trailer lands and it’s perfectly thrilling.

Perhaps it’s a generational thing, but Daniel Craig is without a doubt  my favourite Bond of all time.

Never has October felt so far away.
