I liked Dalton over Brosnan.
yeah the invisible car in DAD kinda broke the camels back, but i thought Goldeneye was good.
TBH i don't think well see a better/realistic reboot than the Craig films. The James Bond series isnt a medium for a really comprehensive script, its more of a fun, hyped, action packed blockbuster you can count on to not bore your uncle with a complex story and dialogue.
BTW - If any of you want a great British spy flick, check out the movie adaptation of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Absolutely wonderful film, proper mystery, with great production value, gripping dialogue and great cast: Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Tom Hardy, Cirian Hinds etc.
the Brosnan movies got more and more unbelievable imo
I see there is going to a remake and relaunch of The Terminator Series
While I did not care too much for the sequels, which got progressively worse, I do hope they do not make a complete hash of the original with the new remake
hollywood = remakes and sequals.
sad but true
if anything original does come along then a sequel is right around the corner
ill agree for the most part sequels and remakes are shit, but there haven been some remarkable examples.
godfather 2, aliens, and even some that were better than the originals, die hard with a vengeance, army of darkness (TDK is shit compared to BB).
as for remakes, scarface, cape fear, dirty rotten scoundrels (love it).
I was talking about in recent times- Hollywood just seems bereft of ideas. I can not remember the last "original" movie I have seen.
Agree. Original ideas are used by small indie films and really don't get the press they deserve.
The thing that Hollywood is getting right now is making movies off of book series. But that is a thin line that you can play with.
you mean like this:
best original movie in a while?
and while some sequals and reboots HAVE been good, they are the exception and not the rule, and still doesn't mean its okay.
agreed, although I have been quite impressed with the Bond and Batman reboots
Spot on Kate. Just saw Dark Knight Rises. Fantastic movie.
Heres a list of great recent original movies:
A Better Life
A Place Beyond the Pines
Robot and Frank
Silver Lining Playbook
Cabin in the Woods
i think ive voiced opinion before, but i feel the need to say it again! BB was amazing, the TDK and TDKR were shit,
I'll throw "Band's visit" as a very good foreign film.
Never heard of it, keep em coming.
yea, like i said, some of the reboots have been really good films. the batman series being one of the best in my opinion. and the daniel craig bond movies have been superb. quantam solace was a little down, but casino royale and skyfall were both great.
i'm also not saying that a good summer blockbuster can't be good. hollywood is just not set up to back originality right now. and if it is original, it's got some really weight behind the project (i.e. director, actors, music).
"The Trap" - serbian/croatian film
Butter - great cast and very cool movie.
