Air Force One (1997) There is no mistaking it, "Air Force One" is a true action thriller.  I remember having gone to see the film in theaters, but I really didn't remember the film itself at all.  So, I was pleasantly surprised when I sat down and watched this film.  It is action-packed from beginning to end.  Before watching it I dismissed the film as another "Executive Decision" or "Die Hard."  However, "Air Force One" holds its own. Harrison Ford stars as the President of the United States, James Marshall.  Marshall allies the US with Russia to capture a terrorist leader from Kazashtan who is plotting to overthrow the Russian government.  After a banquet in Moscow, the president heads back to Air Force One.  Immediately we know who the bad guys are as they are given special attention.  The president is soon joined by his ...

Licence to Kill (1989) In 1989, "Licence to Kill" blasted its way onto the screen.  (Side Note: "licence" is correct.  It is the British spelling of America's "license").  "Licence to Kill" marks the last Bond film before the modern era of Pierce Brosnan as Bond.  The time difference between "Licence to Kill" and the next Bond film, "Goldeneye" is the largest separation among all 22 official Bond films – six years. Timothy Dalton starred as Bond twice.  This film marks his second appearance as the British agent.  I actually enjoy his portrayal of Bond.  Personally, I think he is one of the better Bonds.  I prefer him over Roger Moore.  His demeanor is more suave.  Still, I think Pierce Brosnan had the most controlled Bond performance. In "Licence to Kill" Bond is attending the wedding of his friends Felix and Della (David Hedison and Priscilla Barnes).  ...

Man With the Golden Gun, The (1974) "The Man With the Golden Gun" is the second of seven Bond films for Roger Moore.  Moore has never been my favorite Bond actor.  I just feel like he is too chatty.  Bond is reserved and witty.  Moore seems too much like the class clown.  This film is the fourth and final Guy Hamilton directed Bond film.  Overall, the film is liked by fans but less well received by the film critics.  I for one found the film to be entertaining, but certainly not the best Bond film out there. In 1974, after "Live and Let Die," Moore reprised his role as Bond in "The Man With the Golden Gun."  During the start of the energy crisis, this film makes an attempt at addressing the issue.  With oil-based resources depleting, the gang is out for the secret to solar energy.  Bond ...

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) In 1991, one of the best Robin Hood films was released, "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves."  Now, before you jump all over me for saying that, just take a look at the terrific story present in this film.  The entire film flows nicely.  Never is there a moment that it uninteresting or subpar.  Everything has a role.  That is something that lacks from nearly every movie of recent times. Okay, so there is one drawback to the film, so let's get that out of the way – Kevin Costner.  Yes, it true that his acting in this film is less than stellar, well, less than average is more accurate.  That is the only reason why this film got docked one half of a star.  I can overlook his acting and that is way it is only worth one half of a ...

X-Men Trilogy (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand) Fox, in association with Marvel, has finally brought the rest of the X-Men collection to Blu-ray.  "X-Men: The Last Stand" was one of the first Blu-ray discs to hit the market.  The first two discs were mysteriously absent.  But now, not only has Fox released all three movies, they have released them as a boxset that includes nine discs.  Everything you need from the X-Men is included in this trilogy set. ("X-Men" - Film: 4/5) In the summer of 2000, Fox released one of the most anticipated comic book films into theaters.  The film was well received, though it wasn't as good as it was hyped.  Nonetheless, the success of the first film spawned two follow-ups.  This weekend will mark an unofficial fourth X-Men film, "Wolverine." "X-Men" introduces us to the primary X-Men characters.  All three films are essentially centered on the story ...
