Best Bond lines from the Roger Moore era

6 November 2015 7:14 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dialogue can make or break a film. However beautifully photographed the picture might be, however stimulating, thought-provoking or thrilling the story is, however captivating the score, if what the characters say is poorly conceived, that movie is operating on a significant handicap. The Roger Moore tenure in the 007 film franchise is indeed often criticized for be being the weakest of all the actors who played the part, but more for its frequent silliness…and the fact that Moore was 57 years old by the time his last outing, A View to a Kill, was made. Say what one will about Moore’s versatility as an actor (although doubters should either re-watch For Your Eyes Only or arguably his best non-Bond film, The Man Who Haunted Himself), the man was among the best in delivering witty, comical lines, often peppered with some sort of sexual innuendo. That alone should qualify for something, »

Countdown to Spectre – The Spy Who Loved Me

14 October 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church continues his countdown to Spectre with a review of The Spy Who Loved Me

James Bond’s previous adventure in The Man with the Golden Gun was a low point for the series that relied too heavily on camp and comedy to succeed. While The Spy Who Loved Me continues Bond’s campy trend, it is a vast improvement and a classic 007 film, marking the first time Roger Moore truly feels like James Bond. Its plot, while silly at times, is fast-paced and the characterization of both Bond and Russian spy Anya Amasova is well done. Though it may not deconstruct Bond’s character as much other films, Spy Who Loved Me examines Bond’s personality against Anya’s very well.

After two films with low-level stakes, Spy is a return to the larger than life villain who seeks world domination. Karl Stromberg, however, doesn’t just want »

Vin Diesel Teases Third ‘xXx’ Movie

24 August 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vin Diesel is looking to bring back his Xander Cage character for another “xXx” movie, announcing that the untitled project will begin shooting in December in the Philippines.

A spokesperson for Revolution Studios, which owns the rights to the franchise, told Variety that Diesel is in negotiations to return.

“While I was filming XXX, guys on set called me Air Diesel… The time to return has come. Filming starts December in the Philippines,” the actor revealed in a post to his Instagram account.

Diesel starred in the original 2002 film, directed by Rob Cohen, as underground sports star Xander Cage, who was blackmailed by the U.S. government to take down a gang of international terrorists. The film, released by Sony, performed well with $277 million worldwide.

Diesel was not part of the sequel, with Ice Cube playing the lead role in 2005’s “xXx: State of the Union,” which grossed $71 million worldwide for Sony. »

Magic Mike Xxl review

5 July 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Channing Tatum returns to headline Magic Mike Xxl. It's better than you think...

The gradual reveal of Channing Tatum as a box office magnet and sorely underestimated movie star was staggered over the first half of 2012. The Vow and 21 Jump Street were both hits that showed off opposite sides of his range, but his two collaborations with Steven Soderbergh set him on his current path.

Long renowned as an actor's director, Soderbergh cast Tatum in a minor role in Haywire, which is how he came to be attached to Magic Mike, a semi-biographical project based on the actor's experiences as a stripper in Tampa, Florida. The latter was a sleeper hit that assured Tatum's status as an A-lister, but a sequel hardly felt inevitable.

However, in the same week as Terminator Genisys has shown just how low the bar is for sequels, Magic Mike Xxl turns out to be good »

'Nashville Recap': Juliette Gets Her Groove, Rayna Makes a Pricey Move

30 April 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This week on Nashville, there was seemingly no problem that neither money nor misogyny couldn't solve.

The episode opens with Rayna calling Deacon from her private jet, telling him that she's off to find a new distribution deal. What she's really up to is trying to convince Deacon's estranged sister, Beverly, to cough up a liver for her brother. Through a series of flashbacks we learn that Beverly and Deacon's singing partnership was derailed by Rayna coming into the picture and that Beverly's jealousy runs deep. We also learn that »

James Bond 007: revisiting The Spy Who Loved Me

12 April 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The underwater car, the terrifying henchman and perhaps the most iconic opening scene of all time. The Spy Who Loved Me is a cracker...

And so we arrive at the best Epic Bond of the lot. A great big chocolate fudge sundae of a film with extra waffles and butterscotch ice cream. It begins by making a parachute iconic and cracks on from there. Boasts a henchman, car and girl to rival Goldfinger, and a villainous scheme even more deranged than You Only Live Twice. Nuclear Armageddon meets Finding Nemo – what’s not to like? Hops around the globe without losing its direction. Never once stops trying to please the audience. Never fails to.

The Villain: Overshadowed by his henchman. Stromberg isn’t a terrible antagonist but he hardly sets the pulse racing. Comes across a bit Blofeld-lite: (I Can’t Believe it’s not Blofeld!) Spectre were supposed to »

'Nashville' Recap: Lovers, Bloggers and Prostitutes

2 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The latest episode of Nashville starts with a face slap and ends with a gunshot, and in between there's a whole lot of sexual tension, a little blackmail and the reunion we've all been waiting for.

Another network might have The Slap, but that's nothing compared to the wallop Rayna gave Deacon at the end of the last episode when he finally revealed his cancer diagnosis. So resounding it was that the hit lingered until the beginning of this episode, in fact. Her tearful apology is followed by the assurance »
