spectre

Bond… James Bond is back in all of his shaken martini drinking, Aston Martin driving glory.

Spectre is the 24th movie in the James Bond franchise.  It follows 007 as he tries to track down a secret terrorist organization known as Spectre.  He is forced to do so (mostly) on his own as MI6 is under investigation and the double-o program is shut down.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

In honor of Spectre coming out, my top 10 target this week is (obviously) Bond… James Bond.  No, you won’t find Moonraker on this list (also should be obvious).

10. For Your Eyes Only

– I know some people like Roger Moore.  But I can’t stand his Bond movies.  His take on the character is just not enjoyable to me.  That said, this one is actually pretty interesting and fun to watch.

Classic Movie Reviews are occasional posts in which I review a movie from the past. It might have to do with a movie coming out that week or just a personal favorite of mine. These reviews may contain spoilers.

As I’ve done in the past, I’m reviewing several previous movies in a franchise before a new installment (Mission Impossible movies, Terminator movies).  This time I’m looking at Casino Royale and Skyfall before Spectre comes out. I’m leaving out Quantum of Solace because I don’t like it and didn’t want to rewatch it to give it a proper review.  As always, these reviews will be a bit shorter.

Daniel Craig kicks off his Bond career in my favorite movie of the series. 

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

Since it’s Halloween week, I figured there was no better time to return to horror movies. I’ve already done Top 10 all time horror movies and top 10 slasher movies, so this time I’m turning my sights on modern horror movies (after 2000).  There are a lot more bad ones than good ones (always remember that The Devil Inside somehow exists) but there are more good ones than you would think.

10. Orphan

– I’m really only including it for the really cool twist at the end.  Worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
