With London Has Fallen coming out this weekend, I’m looking at the best action movies this decade (as of February 2016).  I’ve already done similar lists for the ’80s and 90’s. I’ll post the links at the bottom for anyone interested.  There were a few qualifiers for this list.  I’m leaving off superhero movies and war movies.  I think they have their own genres separate from these movies.  Also, there are just some movies I just don’t consider action movies for whatever reason despite having plenty of action in them (think Inception or Star Wars: The Force Awakens).  With all that out the way here’s the list:

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.
