#2,213 - Spectre
Our Brand is Crisis - ★★★☆☆
No no, the plot is something to do with an election. The movie is about revenge. Selfish, shameless, futile revenge. And how it fixes everything.
The Host - ★★★½☆
This was more fun than I was expecting. Maybe I always have a fondness for a movie whose real villain is bureaucracy.
Trumbo - ★★★☆☆
This is a structurally weird movie. Trumbo just wins and wins and wins. I bet it's fun for a bunch of actors to fill out the supporting cast of Hollywood legends.
Spectre - ★★★☆☆
It's fine; it's a Bond movie.
• Maybe the worst song on record though?
• Blofeld could have been handled better, but at least it wasn't a Khan situation.
• Do Bond movies ever have a B-story? - Is this the looming influence of Mission: Impossible?
• I think a little continuity adds flavor to the 007 movies, but in this case: too much.
