WHAT I LIKED: A gritty revenge idea was certainly the right way to go after 'Casino Royale,' as Bond's arc seems to naturally evolve here. Yes once again, the character-story in 'Quantum of Solace' is the strongest part of the film, as it plays no... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It's a widely-accepted fact that Alfonso Cuaron's 'The Prisoner of Azkaban' is a huge step-up after its two predecessors, and I most definitely agree, as it not only has a higher-stakes story, but it also feels genuinely cinematic fo... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Doug Liman's 'The Bourne Identity,' doesn't generally get the same credit that Paul Greengrass' slightly more political franchise efforts often do, but in actual fact this is where the revolutionary stylistic approach really came fro... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The now-called 'Cornetto trilogy' concludes to the standard of 'Shuan of the Dead' and then some; bringing even more depth than we saw in the first installment. This is probably Wright's most layered and intellegent film of all actua... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The band is back together with Nick Frost, Simon Pegg (who's "chemistry" is magnetic) and genious Edgar Wright re-uniting after the brilliant 'Shaun of the Dead.' On the most part, they deliver again too, as this definitely works as... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There are few things better in this world than a well-executed satire, and Edgar Wright's zombie-apocalypse take 'Shaun of the Dead,' is one of modern cinema's great examples of that. Yes the initial idea to ground the classic zombie... Read the full review »

Until a week ago, if you wanted an example of tangible sci-fi world-building, you didn't have to look any further than the original Star Wars trilogy. Now though, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), - the first of a potentially endless number of... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: All the best comedies have more layers than first meet the eye, but Shane Black's 'The Nice Guys' brings the bones of a good film even further forward to deliver something more engaging than most serious dramas. Yes, surprisingly for... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Chamber of Secrets' does step things up a notch after the first film - mainly because the overall story makes for a more engaging and mysterious adventure as the stakes are actually a meaningful part of the plot. This means fals... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Christopher Columbus' first Harry Potter film 'The Philosopher's Stone,' was a success because, like most good franchise starters, it set up a world and a group of characters extremely well. This is not only thanks to the source mate... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Wow this really is a franchise reboot; not only does 'Casino Royale' re-energise and re-stylise Bond, it also brings in a level of sophistication that we've never seen before. Seriously, the STORY is so twisted and layered, yet unlik... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Surprisingly intelligent and yet every bit as badass and gory as you'd expect, 'Robocop's original idea makes for one thoroughly memorable and interesting film that stands the test of time despite feeling so dated. Yes this concept n... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The Second Part to this franchise was just a rehashing of the first film, but here some originality is finally sought in the form of a new plot and character developments that tie back to the first film whilst bringing the franchise... Read the full review »

Dr. No (1962)

Dr. No (1962)

8 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: This is of course where one of the most iconic film franchises began, and what's so startling when you look back at 'Dr No' now is just how elegantly simple it really is. Yes absent are the crazy explosions and fast-paced sequences w... Read the full review »
