Good Grief James Bond

This week we’ve got two new movies. Our first movie is the latest installment in the James Bond universe and that’s Spectre. Our resident film critic didn’t not like it, but neither did our resident Bond fan. In fact we spend most of the movie going through the history of James Bond and picking it apart and talking about what works, what worked and what’s wrong. We then move on to The Peanuts Movie which Sean and I both adored, but I couldn’t help troll it a little….just a little.

Top Five this week is Peanut Movie/specials and or James Bond films. We talk about about them all so get ready.

For our Undisputed Classic this week Josh assigned each of us a Bond movie to watch, so we took on Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and The World is Not Enough.

In 1985 we don’t really take on anything but That Was Then This is Now came out.

Our trailers this week are:

Concussion

Alice Through the Looking Glass

London Has Fallen

The Martian and Sicario Two of the Years Best

0

This week we’ve got four new movies this week. The Martian, Sicario, The Walk and Hell and Back. The first three movies are fantastic. The Walk was released in IMAX only and it didn’t do very but it’s a fantastic film. We highly recommend checking it out. The Martian and Sicario also came out and they are two of the best films of the year so far. They’ll most likely be overlooked come award season which is unfortunate. Then there is Hell and Back which nobody knew about and Sean didn’t find funny.

In 1985 we take on Commando and Jagged Edge

Our trailers this week are:

Ip Man 3
