Just a dude who like movies
The "Miami Vice" episode of the James Bond film series tries something new with the most famous secret agent by breaking formula and taking 007 rogue on a personal revenge tour.
Timothy Dalton's 2nd and final entry into the series is amazingly entertaining as his edgier Bond tears through a drug cartel while exacting revenge for the near murder of his colleague and friend from the CIA, Felix Leiter and his wife at the hands of Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi).
The film moves along at a brisk pace and while not Bond at his best, a nice diversion and a helluva lot of fun.
I recently picked up the Criterion Collection blu-ray and finally decided to tear off the shrink wrap and watch this timeless classic.
David Lynch has the unnerving quality of being able to drag the lowest depths of humanity, while captivating you viewing it. Graphic violence, brutal rape, pearl clutching dialog is all presented in a beautiful opus that you just can't look away from. Therein lies the beauty of the talent of an auteur such as Lynch.
Blue Velvet stands…
M. Night is back! Split is Shyamalan at his finest, mixing suspense and terror to weave a tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat and guessing what might come next. James McAvoy is fantastic as Kevin/Barry/Dennis/Patricia/Hedwig/The Beast. Just as unsettling, is a subplot telling the backstory of Anya Taylor-Joy's character. Well worth a watch and great to see M. Night Shyamalan recapturing the storytelling that made him great.
