WHAT I LIKED: It was clear towards the end of Moore's tenure as Bond that John Glen and the folks at Eon Productions were trying to bring us into Bond's character by placing him in more difficult scenarios, and in order to up the anti and add some... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Green Mile,' is a classic example of fantasy storytelling being used to work through real-life thematic questions. A mysterious prisoner John comes to death row possessing a power to heal and harm, and with both he and the priso... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Moore's last hoorah as 007 'A View to a Kill,' largely carries on in the vein of its predecessor 'Octopussy,' with a high-stakes story that sends Bond on a wild goose chase in which Moore looks a whole lot more desperate and dishevel... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: By this point in the series, Roger Moore had slowly gone from a cold and breezy 007 to the gentleman's Bond who you can't help loving and rooting for, but in Octopussy we see his feathers ruffled far more than usual. Indeed despite b... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The so-called 'Fallen Trilogy,' as it's become known has been rather hit and miss. The first film was big dumb fun, whilst the second film lacked the gritty direction and Gerard Butler-isms to make up for the sloppy, nationalist stor... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Moonraker is widely accepted as one of Bond's silliest outings (perhaps bar the ridiculous Die Another Day) but it's also arguably the film in which Moore's Bond really found his groove as the light-hearted, comedic 007. Indeed whils... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Crow,' is a prime example of style-over-substance filmmaking, but frankly there's nothing wrong with that, particularly when the style amounts to as much as it does here. The atmosphere of this gothic, dystopian city is truly ta... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Many have said it's about male territorialism and vanity, but when you consider that all genders are ultimately broadcast in the same light here, 'American Psycho,' is really a film about people desperately searching for some sort of... Read the full review »
