Greetings programs! This week on the Awesome Friday Movie Podcast, we’re taking on the new Netflix vampire thriller Night Teeth and the 25th entry in the James Bond franchise, No Time To Die.
It is the end of an era. No Time To Die, the 25th entry in the James Bond franchise and the last to feature Daniel Craig as the titular superspy, is finally here after several pandemic related delays. It has been a long time coming; in fact, this has been one of the most prolonged periods without a Jame Bond film since the franchise began back in 1962. The question then becomes, “Is this film worth the wait?” and the answer to that is a resounding “yes.”
The Lobster takes place in a world where if you are single for too long, you are turned into an animal, and if you really want to be single, you have to go live in the woods. It sounds weird, and it is, but it’s also a hilarious commentary on our world and relationships and how we sometimes get what’s important wrong. Yes, it’s a bizarre movie, but the best kind of science fiction often is.
Earlier this morning, director Sam Mendes pulled the sheet off the latest entry in the James Bond franchise – Spectre – and the Internet exploded in a flurry of Sean Connery jokes. Daniel Craig is back as the titular agent and the rest of the revealed cast is a great collection of beauty and danger.
Turns out Bond is the Warmest Colour. Or maybe wants to go for a stroll at Midnight in Paris. Either way French actress Lea Seydoux will be joining the Inglorious Basterd himself the Bond girl in the next, still untitled, James Bond film.
Wes Anderson makes a certain flavour of film. I like to call it “Wes Andersony” because he’s the only guy that makes that particular flavour. The Grand Budapest Hotel appears to be the most Wes Andersony film yet. Let’s watch!
