I know I'm one of the few that has this opinion, but I really liked Brosnan in the role, over anyone else.

I'd give Flight a 6/10 and Skyfall a 6.5/10.
Wait... you didn't like Skyfall because it was corny but Brosnan is your favorite Bond?

Night of the Living Dead (1990)

So it's a remake and we're all suppose to hate remakes right? Well put down your torches, pitchforks, and rope cause out of the three Romero remakes I think this one is the best. First off it's directed by Tom Savini and Romero did show up to produce it, so you know it's at least in good hands. I think the film stays pretty truthful to the original, but takes advantage of a more lenient rating system to allow more gore and swearing than in the original. Tony Todd did an excellent job portraying Ben, and I damn near fell in love with Patricia Tallman as Barbra. In fact I think her character arc is one of the better ones that I've ever seen in a zombie movie. She does a very convincing job at having a psychological breakdown after watching her brother get killed in the graveyard, but by the third act she knows what she needs to do to survive and is willing to do it. I also got a real sense of a feminism undertone as she comments on how slow the zombies are and how they could just leave the house they're frantically trying to board up and avoid them, however the idea gets shot down by Ben who tries to frantically board up the house with anything they can find, which proves to be not enough when the hoard gets big enough.

If you're a big fan of the original I suggest seeking this one out, because I think it really does stay true to the Romero spirit, and there are some really skillful shots that showcase his directorial talent.

I saw this a long time ago, sometime back in the 90s I guess. It was pretty good for a remake I remember reading once that Tom Savini had been studying autopsies and photos of dead people in order to get the makeup and effects right. Pretty morbid fella!

Lol

I didn't like Brosnan's movies the best but I liked him individually as Bond because he was smooth. The whole gritty dynamic with Craig just didn't work for me.

I wanna watch Skyfall, but I really hope Craig has learned to stop puckering his lips at every opportunity.

Skyfall

ok let me first say that i have been a fan of Mr Bond since i was a kid and this is the first Bond film i did not see opening day since A View To a Kill (Unfortunately i was stuck is some seriously ****ed up weather so i had to settle for an early Sunday viewing)

on that

first and foremost this was an excellent come back from the horrible Quantum Of Solace....this is really the first time...in my opinion that Craig really took the character and made it his own.....as far as the film in a nutshell....very classic bond plot and action with a nice assimilation of Bond into the 21st century.....loved the inclusion of "M" as an actual character and loved the idea for the new "Q"....the best Bond ever? no fucking way....an absolute riot of a film with great character and tons of little funny "bond fan" throw outs? absolutely

Argo


Pretty good. Ben Affleck directing Ben Affleck makes for a very "Ben Affleck-ish" (if the poster wasn't indicative enough)movie.

Dead Man


Crap. A couple truly novel, daring scenes don't make up for a boring drawn out self indulgent bs. Johnny Depp plays the exact same character he does in every other film. The script by Jarmusch can be painful sometimes, especially the back and forth with the native american dude. I'm all for arthouse black and white directorial debuts (thankyou very much aronofsky) but this film is just a drag.



Really great film. Cool hybrid mockumentary/reenactment. It was nice to see Jack do a roll where it isn't all obnoxious screaming or air guitar-in. Very interesting character piece.

Yeah, none of those pics worked.
