    No Time to Die

    ★★★

    The pre credit sequence is the longest in the series, and one of the best. The rest of the movie is also the longest in the series, and possibly the worst,  no matter how many allusions to OHMSS, my favorite of all Bonds.

    Overlong, overstuffed, relentlessly kinetic yet remarkably boring. Is Rami Malek the worst Bond villain of all time? Does Blofeld even need to be here? Did. Not. Care.

    ★★½

    First of all, it really isn’t that hard to slap a color gel on a light so everyone wetting themselves with five star love for this movie needs to calm the fuck down. Eyes Wide Shut uses the same basic color palette and has story and characters to boot. 

    There are undoubtedly several striking images and shots in Suspiria, and I will couch this review with the disclaimer that I watched a lousy standard def transfer on Tubi TV, complete…
