  • "The Wolf of Wall Street"

    A Martin Scorsese film about a walk of depravity so satiric of yuppie culture you're surprised Tarantino didn't have a hand in it.

      I'd say it was a bit of a throwback to some of the older Bonds...entertaining, but like the theme song this time around, just not building to anything like what we've come to expect from this incarnation. The weakest of the Craig outings, but still entertaining...the biggest problem I had was with the romantic interest. Didn't care for the actress, thought she was given a thin and unlikable role and then the audience was supposed to believe this is the girl Bond rides off into the sunset with? I'd have it only slightly more credible if he'd driven away with Q.

      • Spy (with Melissa McCarthy) - Unlikely, underrated, plus size woman becomes comic kick *** Bond, James Bond.

        Really enjoyed it. It grossed 4 times its' production cost. Open ended allowed for sequel. I would see that.

        • Bridge of Spies: remember when narrative was more important than special effects...this film does.

            Recently watched her in the movie The Boss.
            She is so funny.
            I really enjoyed her Mike & Molly series too.

              • That was the worst one sentence movie review ever.

                Sounds interesting though.

                  Yeah, too many movie threads in here to go looking for just the right one.

                    Yeah, well I have the other one that's less succinct so I'm probably part of the reason. And we all do that. I've launched a Gazette in someone else's thread before, so you've got nothing on me.
