Licence to Kill started in such promising fashion, but it drags a bit in the middle. It's one of the more underrated films in the series, that and The Living Daylights. That would be the one where Wayne Newton had a minor role in it (he wasn't the main villain) and if anything, he was the only comic relief in the movie. Bless your heart!

A View to a Kill was laughably bad (Christopher Walken), although still manages to be enjoyable.


Like I said I haven't watched many of the pre-Brosnan films start to finish or multiple times. Difficult to keep the different plots and characters separate outside of a couple of the better older Bond films. Dalton is ;-D though.

The Devil 7.5/10

Not sure where all the Shyamalan hate has come from (of course, I haven't seen the Last Airbender, so that might change my mind), but I thought this pretty good. It kept me guessing and the ending was pretty good...

I enjoyed Devil when I caught it in the theater over the summer as well.

Thor: 7.25/10

Not a great movie, but entertaining. As long as you do not expect a classic movie, you will probably be entertained for a couple of hours.

Sixth Sense was ok, Unbreakable was bearable but the problem with his movies is that you watch them once and there's no reason to watch them again. The only good part about them is the twist and once you've seen the twist the rest of the movie doesn't really bring you back to watch it again.

...as did I. The Happening was really the only disappointing one that I've seen. I even thought Lady in the Water was semi-entertaining (5.5ish/10).

Hangover II (4/10) - Pretty much the same plot as the original. Constantly uses shock value to make the audience laugh and to cover up the fact that there's practically no plot to the movie whatsoever. The chinese guy is more annoying than Jar Jar Binks. Overall it was not very good, but I'm sure most people will like it because they're easily amused.
