Daniel Craig Announces His Return As James Bond
Bond fans have been left wondering, speculating and feeding the rumor mill of whether Craig was going to be back as 007 or hang up his Walther.
As Daniel Craig makes the rounds to promote his newest film Lucky Logan, the question of whether he’ll play James Bond again was bound to be asked over and over again to him. He’s refused to give a definitive answer – until now!
At an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he point blank answered the big question – Yes, he will return for one final time to play 007. READ MORE
Movie Clichés – The Ominous Parking Garage
Parking garages have become popular locations for deadly and mysterious encounters in horror, thrillers and action movies. It’s unlikely if a character places their feet on their concrete floor they’ll have an easy, whistling walk to their car. When a character finds themselves in a parking garage it can almost guarantee suspense and deadly encounters.
Parking garages also just don’t have to house a bunch of stationary cars, but they can be used as claustrophobic mazes to unleash car chases in. Movie heroes have to navigate tight corners and mammoth columns to elude bad guys with usually one way out! It takes some pretty skilled driving to escape a chase in a parking garage.
I take a look at all that classic location and the cliché of parking garages in movies. READ MORE
Summer Movies – August 2017
I’ve said this before, but I might as well say it one last time – this summer was a real letdown for movies. AGAIN! Last summer was pretty much a bust as well. This is starting to become a trend at theaters.
The remainder of the summer doesn’t look like it will leave any lasting impact. But let’s see if there is anything worth driving over to the theater for in August or if it would be wiser to stay home, watch The Gong Show and wait for this stuff to hit DVD. READ MORE
The Little Three Stooges Are Coming!
One when they’re little kids of course! Or at least that’s what the filmmakers behind ‘The Little Three Stooges’ are thinking.
Yes, ‘The Little Three Stooges’. Recent news is that a new film will take our famous trio back to where they haven’t been interpreted before – as twelve-year-olds. Can we categorize this as a prequel?
I’m not sure why or who thought this was a good idea. Here are a few of my thoughts about seeing a movie starring Little Three Stooges. READ MORE
A James Bond Cinematic Universe – Is It A Good Idea?
So, the latest James Bond rumor making the rounds is that the Bond producers are interested in creating a whole Cinematic Universe of films around 007. Expanding the world of 007 to focus on other characters and giving them their own solo adventures while Mr. Bond is off duty.
This is just a very, very loose rumor that has no validity whatsoever, but somehow got some attention. Probably because fans are so desperate for some actual Bond news. There has been nothing even remotely official spoken about this at all. Let’s hope it stays that way. I would much prefer to read some hard news about Bond 25, but let’s entertain this ‘James Bond Cinematic Universe’ as if it were actual news anyway. READ MORE
The Craig Reconstruction: Quantum of Solace (2008)
Followers of mine are probably aware I had previously done a review of Daniel Craig’s second 007 film Quantum of Solace quite awhile ago. However, I was unable to post it on my Youtube channel thanks to some copyright issues.
I’d like to get all of my video projects on my Youtube channel, since that would be where most of my followers can easily watch them and new viewers can discover them. So being unable to post them there is a bit frustrating.
After doing some tweaking and re-editing I’ve been able to upload the full Quantum of Solace review (along with my Casino Royale one). There are some minor changes from the original reviews, but essentially they’re the same. I’m hoping it will remain there untouched with no problems. I’m hoping to tackle Skyfall at some point.
So here is my longwinded, overlong dissection of Quantum of Solace. Enjoy!
