Se7en (1995)

Se7en (1995)

9 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: Pegged by many as the epitome of the thriller genre; 'Se7en' is a film that earns its status by gripping you tighter and leaving you more desperate to watch each and every situation unfold than virtually any other thriller. This is o... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: What's definitely most appealing about Marvel's 'Ant-Man,' is the high-concept creativity of its main growing and shrinking idea, as that unlocks the opportunity for some brilliantly charming set-pieces and some extremely effective c... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' is a very different kind of Marvel movie as it's clearly aiming for far higher territory in heavily drawing from political thrillers of the recent past, and that in itself is an admirable thing.... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKE: Perhaps most shockingly, this film makes the WW2 setting work and consequently grounds Steve Rogers in his shoes better than any Marvel movie has to date. Because everything's established so well, there's also some genuinely emotional... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: This is hands down one of the best Bond stories of them all. It has a great relationship dynamic and a high-stakes story to match, making you truly care and bringing you to the edge of your seat throughout. This is exactly the kind o... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Matrix' is mostly a success because of its beautifully innovative thematic story, but it also works because all of that is delivered with an edge and creativity to engage a whole range of audiences. Yes with the Wachowskis' wond... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Moonraker' is not only a classic because of it's extravagance, but also because it's one of the funnest films in the series. It might be ridiculous, but hey, watching James kick the hell out of bad guys and jet into space will make... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The last act of 'For Your Eyes Only' is super engaging as it's one of those stories where everything comes together really nicely. We also get a fairly good villain and a slightly 'Spy Who Loved Me' style love interest, which is refr... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Brian De Palma's 'Mission: Impossible,' is a film that sees a Hollywood franchise formula born, and its approach is one that has largely been followed closely throughout the subsequent series simply because it all generally works ver... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The second Mission: Impossible movie sees John Woo take the wheel from Brian De Palma, and on the one hand that means we get a very different visual style and some cheesy attempts at character development. Really though, it's still a... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Brad Bird's 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol,' is regarded by many as the film where this franchise entered its prime, and whilst I think JJ Abrams' third installment is still a far superior picture, it's hard to disagree that M... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Octopussy' delicately, and rather excitingly sets up it's story really well thanks to plenty of exciting espionage elements and high stakes moments. It's rare when the first act is the most engaging, but it sure is here and this hel... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'From Russia With Love' is more so a thrilling espionage story than it is a classic Bond film as it enjoys taking its audience on a high-adrenaline edge-of-your-seat journey through the action and secrecy. Indeed by building on the a... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Like it's predecessor, 'A View to a Kill' has a build-up that largely works thanks to a great villain and high-stakes plot, not to mention a more 'on' than 'off' performance from Moore. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: It does begin to get extrem... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: This film makes an attempt to add a bit of depth to Moore's Bond. Christopher Lee delivers an excellent performance too, and the whole experience is aided by a great plot that winds up to a very good final sequence WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: With the stakes raised, we see a harsher side to Bond's character and some pretty exciting new environments. What's more, the cold-war plot allows for some against the clock tension, and abolishes some of the cringe-worthy humour of... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Spielberg said it himself; this is the most honest comic book movie out there, because it truly knows what it is. I thought it would be funny and quirky, but James Gunn manages to exceed all my expectations by building something genu... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Something that Moore's latest Bonds sadly lacked; Timothy Dalton brings an edge to his performance that radiates throughout the entire movie. The result is a film that's actually one of the most sophisticated in the series, where we... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Now that we know everything about these characters and this world it's a rather different experience watching George Lucas' original 'Star Wars,' but it's important to remember that this film is actually one steeped in mystery. Yes f... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: This series just seems to get more thoughtful and thematic as it progresses, and in a way, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2’ is the perfect accumulation of all of that as it’s much slower and gives real time to exploring... Read the full review »
