Yup. Definitely agree with you

Yep. Bond and Patrice against the neon backdrop was jawdropping.

Die Another Day was the Bond movie I most associated with my childhood and when I went back and watched it last weekend I was so disappointed lol.

Btw, do they still make good bond video games? I used to love those games back in the day.

It's a strange one since it had one of the best openings of any Bond ever. The whole sequence in Korea was fantastic. Then it all just went downhill at a fast rate.

The last movies in the main series for all the long-term Bonds (Connery, Moore, Brosnan) have been generally awful.

Great movie, I'd give it a 7.5, I liked the first one more though.

So I re-watched Brave tonight. On my PS3 in 1080i.

And I do think it's a good movie. In that second tier of Pixar movies.

BUT I think this one is notable for this reason: it's the best looking Pixar movie to date. I sat here in awe the whole time watching it.

How about compared to Wreck it Ralph and the OG Kung Fu Panda?

I would put Kung Fu Panda in the second tier of this particular sort of movie, not great but very good, and Dreamworks' best effort so far.

Wreck It Ralph, the further I get away from seeing it the more I really like what it accomplished. I'll have to see it again I think.

I don't know man ... I don't know if you're strictly talking from an animation perspective

But I thought Kung Fu Panda / Wreck it Ralp from a story, thematic perspective was a PIXAR caliber quality flick.

Wreck It Ralph was good fun, but other than the callbacks to old school games (Dr. Robotnik!) at the support group meetings there weren't really many (any?) "jokes for the adults" the way Toy Story and a lot of other Pixar stuff puts in.

It's fun flick and all, but it's definitely a kid's movie. The voice acting was pretty great, I'll definitely give it that.

That's not the point of those movies though.

Wreck it Ralph did a formulaic familiar kind of mediocre storyline, and did it perfectly. That's why it was really good, but couldn't break through to great.

Not sure if anyone here has seen "Chalk" or "An Ordinary Family" but the latter film was played at my school this week and we had the director come by and watch it with us and also do a Q&A afterwards. The main character is the theater professor here as well, so that was pretty cool. The director's name is Mike Akel, a very interesting guy. Grossed 300K on his first film with a budget of 10K. Said he's looking for a big name actor for his next film and and has an agent that can get it done. Was interesting to hear him, also a good film. Chalk is far more well known and has 79% on RT.
