Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
26% Casino Royale (1967) I cannot even recommend the film in any half-hearted manner. It's insulting to moviegoers, it's insulting to me, and it's insulting to Bond.‐ Film Inquiry

88% Thunderball (1965) The film moves at a leisurely pace, but it still exudes Classic Bond and features some of the finest spy work in the series to date.‐ Film Inquiry

98% Goldfinger (1964) It's not quite the perfect film many claim it to be, but it is a perfect representation of what Bond is, and you would be hard-pressed to identify a film in the series that is filled with more iconic moments than this one.‐ Film Inquiry

95% From Russia With Love (1964) From Russia with Love is a complete and total success as both a Bond film and a spy film, loftily enjoying the best of both worlds as it further establishes an indomitable template for more adventures to come.‐ Film Inquiry

95% Dr. No (1962) Stylish, armed with handsome production values, and sporting a confident lead actor, Dr. No is a strong entry point, elemental in kickstarting the global phenomenon we know and love.‐ Film Inquiry

86% After Midnight (Something Else) (2020) After Midnight shows much potential in its early-goings, which makes the lack of a satisfying follow-through all the more disappointing.‐ Film Inquiry

85% Zombi Child (2020) Few directors have been able to keep their vision fresh and excitingly varied through a multitude of unique projects, and Zombi Child, an eerie yet beautiful tale of coming-of-age and vodou, is no exception. ‐ Film Inquiry

68% Knives and Skin (2019) What's most frustrating aboutKnives and Skinis despite all of these wild and weird ingredients, there is simply no connective tissue to keep everything together. Reeder's vision is frustratingly opaque.‐ Film Inquiry

76% Richard Jewell (2019) It's a relevant, emotional work from the storied filmmaker's career, and it's also one of the strongest films he's made in quite some time.‐ Film Inquiry

21% Lucy in the Sky (2019) Lucy in the Sky is an absolute flatline, dragging to an anticlimactic ending. Hawley has proven that he's got the goods in the past, but after such an epic misfire, he might do best to stay in television where he belongs.‐ Film Inquiry

27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) While Stallone is back and game to dish out the pain, it's safe to say that Rambo's famous Bowie knife has officially dulled.‐ Film Inquiry

64% The Mountain (2019) The Mountain is an unusual feature, but it benefits from Alverson's keen visual eye and the two strong performances from Sheridan and Goldblum. ‐ Film Inquiry

67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Leitch manages to inject some real excitement late in the proceedings, but it's too little too late for this overstuffed feature. Hobbs and Shaw may have finally received their own film, but it is not the one they deserved.‐ Film Inquiry

38% Point Blank (2019) The remake of Point Blank has the ingredients for success, but the film never delivers, consistently fizzling out instead of coming to a boil.‐ Film Inquiry

33% Domino (2019) The film is not completely without its merits, offering flashes of the old filmmaker's skills through all the narrative jumble. Perhaps, one day, a director's cut will be released, and we'll get the true version of De Palma's vision as intended.‐ Film Inquiry

84% Avengement (2019) As far as action cinema goes, Avengement is an absolute success, and I eagerly await to see what else Johnson has in store for us.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
90% Starfish (2019) Given the minimal amount of budget White had to work with, Starfish is stunningly crafted.‐ Film Inquiry

69% Triple Threat (2019) While not exactly known for their dramatic capabilities, these men do know how to put up a fight, resulting in a slick, entertaining feature that works best as a showcase for their talents.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2019
39% Donnybrook (2019) Donnybrook has trouble finding its footing, coming off as derivative of superior films.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2019
37% Glass (2019) Glass may have been a film nineteen years in the making, but it feels superfluous and incredibly out of touch in a world littered with superhero films.‐ Film Inquiry

0% Speed Kills (2018) At the end of the day, all Speed Kills really has going for it is an exceedingly committed Travolta. ‐ Film Inquiry

84% Creed II (2018) While Creed II does not reach the fantastic heights of Creed, it still puts up plenty of fight to prove itself worthy.‐ Film Inquiry

79% Halloween (2018) It's all slickly executed by Green, but there's a lingering sense of familiarity that dulls the blade of Michael's knife.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2018
32% The Predator (2018) The Predator does everything it can to effectively kill off further interest in the franchise.‐ Film Inquiry

23% Mile 22 (2018) Instead of adapting a real-life disaster for their fourth go around, they've opted to make their own disaster from this cinematic abortion.‐ Film Inquiry

43% Fireworks (2018) Shinbo has a real talent for painting a pretty picture, but the end result of his work can be summed up with one word: flat.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2018
0% Gotti (2018) It's a shame Connolly didn't quit while he was behind. All Gotti has going for it is a characteristically energetic Travolta, and without him, it's dead on arrival.‐ Film Inquiry

76% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2018) An incredibly wild and gonzo piece of art.‐ Film Inquiry
