Hail, Caesar! is an old (1951) Hollywood love letter of sorts. The plot, if it can be called one, loosely follows studio executive, Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) as he sees to the day to day [operations]. This is one of those times when the trailers sold complete and utter lies.

Deadpool is the latest in the growing line of “Hard-R” comic book movies. In my opinion, it’s not the best (story/character wise) but it’s easily the most fun you’ll have at the theater in years.
Without getting into plot specifics and meta commentary, it’s hard to paint a picture of what one should expect from Deadpool. At its core, the story follows Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson balancing being a hired gun, falling in love, and dealing with cancer. When a cure to his extremely terminal diagnois is presented, Wade finds himself dealing with more than he ever could have possibly bargained for.

Spectre is the newest Bond movie and possibly the last or second to last one starring Daniel Craig. It’s the second directed by Sam Mendes and it is a direct followup to everyone but me’s “favoritist Bond evar," Skyfall.
Spectre is akin to a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s not great. It’s somewhere between good and ok. A truly forgettable and average experience.
But that’s not what you came here for is it?
While it’s true I always wait a full week/minimum of 24 hours before doing any kind of in depth spoiler review, I have NO qualms doing an in depth spoiler review/rant on the state of the industry when it pertains to one of top ten favorite Bond movies, one that came out in 1969.
Spectre: A spoiler (of sort) review/rant on On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Spectre or “Court of Owls: Rogue Nation Majesty’s Secret Service.”
is slapped together horrendously lazy attempt at doing a “Bond by Numbers." The entire thing felt as if Brocoli’s daughter (granddaughter? It’s been 50 yrs who can keep up?) and her childhood friends went into the attic and put on the grownup clothes to go through the motions without any heart of substance.
Spectre is the perfect example of “Chekov’s gun firing blanks” it’s all foreplay and no payoff.
