WHAT I LIKED: In the midst of a global pandemic, we could all do with a bit of mindless fun, so a Chris Hemsworth action movie about a burly mercenary rescuing a drug lord's kid in Dhaka sounds like the perfect medicine. Ultimately though, no matt... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Martin Scorsese has a love-affair with exploring the city - New York in particular of course - and whilst his most famous exploration of the affects of urban life are to be seen in 'Taxi Driver,' I would argue they're most brilliantl... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Spy who Loved Me,' has one of the greatest Bond stories of all, as it sees 007 and his female Russian equal (sharing a link they're both oblivious to) sent on the same mission by their respective governments. They're completely... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The best thing about 'The Man With the Golden Gun,' is its villain. Christopher Lee brilliantly plays the titular assassin (involved in a plot to take over the energy market) who is fascinated by Bond when their paths cross, and the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: If Connery played Bond like a bull in a china shop, Roger Moore plays the character like someone who owns the whole store. He swaggers about not with Connery's brutish out-of-place smirk, but with the raised eyebrows of someone who's... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: For some reason, Diamonds are Forever seems to catch a lot of flak these days, but in my opinion it's actually a pretty great Bond adventure on the whole. Partly that's because Connery's back on form (after the blip of You Only Live... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service,' is a very different kind of Bond film - primarily because Bond himself is portrayed as a completely different character. Whereas in Connery's films we root for him because of his underdog likeabilit... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'You Only Live Twice,' is actually a very well laid-out Bond film. We begin with a rather brilliant opening sequence in space in which a US spacecraft is stolen, and - with the Russians being blamed - Bond is sent on a mission to Jap... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Leon is the infamous English-language debut of the great Luc Besson, and it of course follows the story of a quiet and meticulous French hitman in New York who inadvertantly ends up caring for his neighbour - a troubled young girl Ma... Read the full review »
