Consensus: “Dr. No” is the James Bond film that started it all. I have slowly begun to think of this film as one of the best in the series. Dr. No is a classic Bond villain. This film is a slow burn that builds to a sensational action climax. A lot of the series cliches were born in this movie.
Consensus: “Bright” is not a particularly great film but I can see it becoming a guilty pleasure. I enjoyed the weird blend of fantasy hats tees thrown into a buddy cop flick with relentless gun fights and explosions.
Consensus: I caught up with this one way later in life. I was surprised to find how dark it is for a family movie. I can see why this is a season favorite every Halloween because it is quite entertaining and atmospheric.
Consensus: I have no idea what happens in this movie. The events are just bay shit crazy. I can not deny that the film is hypnotic and features some absolutely arresting and horrifying imagery. I need to see this movie again yet I’m dreading it as this was such a grueling experience. “Mother!” is a film I will not soon forget. I honestly don’t know how I feel about this film. I understand now why it was so divisive.
Consensus: This is a sneaky good film full of quirky performances. I love how it slowly descends into comic violence and ultimately a free for all.
Consensus: “The Shape Of Water” is a sweet and unique love story told through the wonderful imagination of Guillermo Del Toro. Just from a movie making stand point, this is beautifully made from the sets, the visuals to the creature effects. The performances are amazing as well, especially Sally Hawkins who isn’t able to utter a single word.
Consensus: “Detroit” is a powerful and timely recreation of a terrifying chapter in American history. It is horrifying and intense. My only gripe is that it is just a bit too long. The third act drags out a bit.
