Poster for the movie "Spectre"

Spectre

Given the prior Bond trilogy, I had expected greater things of this edition and probable conclusion to the threads. Unfortunately, it felt more formulaic and too moody in places as if juggling the former’s gravitas as interludes between archetypal set pieces. As a result, it felt less grounded than previous outings.

Poster for the movie "Wrath of the Titans"

Wrath of the Titans

A big improvement on the first one, this was simply a roller-coaster action movie set against the mythological backdrop. A customary hat-tip to most of the myths lavished with large-scale Hollywood ideas. Not much to stimulate the intellect, but creative and action-packed.

Wrath of the Titans

20121 h 39 min
Overview

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus-the demigod son of Zeus-is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon.

Poster for the movie "Skyfall"

Skyfall

This film grew on me. It’s a reflection of the changing times, and closes the chapter on the old Bond style (they blew up the DB5) and ushered in the new with a reversion to the skill of the agent in the field instead of a reliance on gadgetry. A much more human film, though tech did play its part in electronic warfare (naturally), and the transition of M and Q were appropriate. Q felt a little too “IT Crowd” which seemed out of place, but holds promise for future instalments.

Skyfall

20122 h 23 min
Overview

When Bond's latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Gareth Mallory, the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows - aided only by field agent, Eve - following a trail to the mysterious Silva, whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.
