The Grand Budapest Hotel
59 days ago via Flixster

A zany live action comedy from Anderson. I loved the use of stop-motion for some of the action scenes and in fact the film has a very similar style and pace to Anderson's 'Fantastic Mr Fox'. Fiennes is very funny as the madcap hotel concierge and is supported by a huge all star cast. It's not your typical caper film but there's so much to enjoy and see (the whole thing looks beautiful) that it's a film you'll come back to again and again.

Live and Let Die

A slight improvement from 'Diamonds are Forever' but Moore doesn't look comfortable in the role yet and you miss the brutality of Connery. Add a racist plot (all the villains seem to be black!) and you're far from classic Bond but some of stunts are good, the setting is stunning and McCartney's theme song is a classic.

I haven't watched a film with such tension and gripping performances in some time. I couldn't wait to see what happened next (or more importantly what Simmons would do next!). If you said that you could make a gripping drama about a college band and drumming I'd have laughed but this is so slickly directed, the music so compelling and dramatic and in Simmons you have one of the great movie villains of all time. Like 'Black Swan' this is mostly about our hero trying to strive for perfection and the skill, dedication and commitment that comes with that. I can appreciate that type of story and the type of drama it creates. This film gets it just right and I am looking forward to rewatching it very soon.

It's a shame that this was Connery's last official Bond film as the whole thing doesn't really work as well as his other entries. The whole thing seems a bit slapdash and everyone seems to be going through the motions, Connery included. Gray just isn't threatening as Blofeld and the Vegas setting gives the whole proceedings a tacky feel. One for completists only I'm afraid.
