Skyfall took a strange trail from concept to movie screen. Casino Royale reinvented the franchise and yet only 2 movies into the Daniel Craig era there was a chance Bond would die. But here we are with a new Bond film coming out and now the best new Bond film is available for you to catch up with.
New to the Service:
A new Bond, a new style, and a new timeline. Casino Royale reset more than the actor in the suit and it shows you wear a man like James Bond comes from and why he is the way he is. It somewhat humanized a borderline machine secret agent that James Bond usually acts like. He always seems steps ahead and always emotionally distant. Casino Royale gives you some insight of who Bond is and all the fancy gadgets and crazy actions scenes you love from a James Bond film.
Just in time for Halloween right? Before Sam Raimi was known for the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy, but would it surprise some of you to know his directorial history was much darker? The Evil Dead was a horror film with a small budget that has attained cult hit status. The sequel was a remake in hopes of making it better but that doesn't take away from the unique style that both have. It's worth a watch to understand why so many love these movies and why so many were disappointed in Spider-Man.
A group of dimwitted wanna-be rock stars storm their way into a radio station and lose their chance to get their demo played, pull out guns and take the place over. Let me be clear, this movie is dumb. But putting Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi, Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Ernie Hudson, Judd Nelson, Joe Mantegna, and so many others in one movie something in it has to be good. Something about this movie is just cute, quiant, and entirely watchable. Don't go in expecting gold but it's worth a watch and you may just find out you like it.
Kick-Ass: Nov. 3rd
With the flux of superhero movies it isn't shocking that someone would make their own to cash in while they can. Kick-Ass however may have been made to cash in but it did it with it's own style and pizazz. Gritty, violent, and sometime brutal, Kick-Ass reflects what superheroes might be if they were real people like us. Disillusioned with society and sending themselves into the streets to protect the innocent and defeat the evildoers. Kick-Ass is a great movie so get this in quick!
Naruto the Movie: Nov. 8th
Naruto the Movie 1, 2, and 3 all expire on the same day so if you're into Naruto you might want to schedule in a viewing marathon sometime this weekend. I haven't heard from someone who has seen these if they're worth the watch, but as someone who did watch Naruto for a bit the first one at least intrigues me.
