REview – Spectre (2015)

I enjoy James Bond movies, though I wouldn’t call myself a ‘superfan’ by any stretch of the imagination–which you could probably tell from me getting around to seeing Spectre only four years after it’s initial release. And I think I dodged a bullet because while it’s not a terrible movie, it is a bloated one […]

Is Apple 00Crazy!?

I just read in The Hollywood Reporter that Apple is reportedly vying for the rights to distribute James Bond (along with Amazon, Sony and Warner Bros) movies, which I am trying to get my head around. Now keep in mind such a move would likely give Apple exclusive access to Bond’s entire back catalog (as […]

‘S’ Is For Seer

As self-driving cars become more ubiquitous, the rate of them being involved in accidents will likely increase. Though driverless cars, while closer to becoming reality than ever before–were foretold pretty accurately about sixty years earlier in the British adventure series Department S (I assume that the ‘S’ stands for the first letter of the last […]

My Thoughts On Idris Elba As James Bond

Kingsman: The Secret Service -Review

“”Kingsman: the Secret Service” Is More Fun Than It Has Any Right To Be.” Honestly I didn’t go into Kingsman: The Secret Service expecting all that much.  It’s directed by Matthew Vaughn, who did X-Men: First Class, Stardust, Kick-Ass, and Layer Cake. Luckily my reticence wasn’t necessary because it’s a pretty good time.  The movie takes […]
