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.

The final Spectre trailer has landed and to be honest I feared that it might show far more than I care to see before the movie. I’m delighted  to confirm that it doesn’t…

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.

SPECTRE (2015): Welcome James. It’s Been A Long Time…

Sam Mendes, the Director of my favourite film, American Beauty (1999) said yes to making his second James Bond movie – and the first teaser trailer for Spectre (2015) has now arrived.

It looks like we’ll be getting more of the signature breathtaking cinematography, musical score, action sequences and the super dialogue typical of recent Bond films.

With some of Europe’s finest film making talent at the helm – Sam Mendes, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci and of course, Daniel Craig, all we have left to do now is look forward to the final product and hope that the next trailer or two don’t reveal too much of the plot.

Happy Spectre 🙂
