It has been a long time coming, but (as of this writing) the 25th James Bond film No Time to Die will finally be released on September 30th 2021, in the UK and on October 8th, 2021, here in North America. That gives you about a month to catch up on the franchise, and here’s where you can do just that! Below you’ll find links to buy, rent, or stream each of the 24 official (and 2 non-official) James Bond films.Continue reading “Home Video: Every James Bond Movie and Where to Buy, Rent, or Stream them”
It’s never fair when a new film is compared to a classic, but that’s what I am going to do with False Positive. While this film cribs from many others, it is perhaps most obviously an homage to Rosemary’s Baby. They’re both films in which a young woman gets pregnant but not all is what it seems, and the array of slightly odd characters surrounding her life are clearly not telling her the whole truth.Continue reading “Tribeca 2021 Review: ‘False Positive’ is a suitably creepy thriller with a scene stealing performance from Pierce Brosnan”
I saw two movies last week but don’t have much to say about either.
Relativity certainly has some confidence in their next Pierce Brosnan spy movie. They’ve already ordered a sequel despite despite it not yet being in cinemas.
Pierce Brosnan is a ertired spy protecting a valuable asset who knows something about a decades old conspiracy from his former protege. Almost sounds like a Bond movie but only because Brosnan is in the lead role. Let’s take a look!
Pierce Brosnan as an older spy/assassin training a young spy/assassin and they both get caught up in some international intrigue. Let’s watch!
Kees van Dijkhuizen jr is the guy behind such amazing zupercuts as the “[[the films of]](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDCB50778268B1250) series –in which the tone and style of a director is explored in each video– and the [[cinema]](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL570A2BCEC0545299) series –in which the years worth of movies are cut together in retrospect.
Now his attentions are turned to Bond, and this might be my favourite of his work to date.
Amazing, right? van Dijkhulzen is rather adept at picking his clips to capture the essence of a film/series/etc, and he’s done pretty masterfully here.
Here’s his write up:
> When it comes to cultural icons, James Bond is one of the biggest and most influential. These past 50 years we’ve been able to experience 007s finest adventures on the big screen, including last year with the excellent SKYFALL which shattered box office records. This piece, set to Adele’s ‘Skyfall’, revisits Bond’s adventures, from Dr. No to Skyfall, taking you through the various eras of the Bond legacy. Get those Martinis ready!
> This is in no way a full retrospective of the Bond films, the only way to truly live 007’s adventures is by seeing them yourself. And what better way to do that than with the Bond 50 Collection on Blu-ray! Each film has been restored to its former glory with pristine picture quality. They really outdid themselves with the 4K restoration process and so every frame of footage used in this video is straight from the source, maintaining the best possible quality from edit to upload.
