Someone earlier said it's what a female James Bond should be and rewatching that's exactly what this film is. The writers and directors have clearly been inspired by Bond films. There is the dramatic start, the long opening credits (which I don't think Marvel usually do?), Black Widow has someone who gets her gadgets (I.E Q), the globe trotting spy structure and Ray Winstone is channelling a lot of Bond villain energy complete with a powerful henchman. They even have a clip of Moonraker in the film in case anyone thought these homages weren't intentional!

Also Florence Pugh is excellent as she is in most films so it's good she'll be part of the MCU in future.
The Moonraker clip was most certainly a hat-tip towards the Bond franchise, no doubt chosen as it also prefigures the location of the Red Room. There were a couple of other places where I recall thinking that they had inserted an homage or two, maybe a line in the music or dialogue, but I’ll have to see it again to remember. IIRC it should become free to regular Disney subscribers in 3-4 months.

I think it works in a lot of Bond tropes. Outside of the usual Marvel formula I wouldn't be surprised if Bond was the main other influence on it.

Escape Room: Tournament of Champions: 7.5/10

A good sequel and worthy successor to the first movie. If you enjoyed the first one you'll love this one. It is a direct continuation of the story with more elaborate puzzles and some good plot twists. Well worth a watch.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Jolt worth 6/10 however it has Kate Beckinsale kicking ass that easily gives it an extra point for this sad man who still thinks she is smokin ....

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I love Kate Beckinsale and was all set to watch it but as soon as I saw the trailer I was put right off. I would rather go back and watch the Underworld films again than Jolt.

I can't remember ever seeing a trailer which made the film look worse than it actually was.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Miami magma on SiFi. Just appalling. no wonder it got a 3.3 on IMDB. Just a good waste of celluloid. Still better than watching children barbecuing

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Enola Holmes - 7/10.

Entertaining (and sometimes funny) film, and a nice change from Sci-Fi/Fantasy.

Apparently it did rather well on Netflix, and a sequel is in the works.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Free Guy: 10/10

Somebody poured their heart and soul into the story and characters in this film. From the trailer you get the impression it is an action and special effects extravaganza and it definitely is but it is also so much more than that. I have commented recently in another thread how I don't find most comedies funny because the humour is either too predictable or too stupid to be funny. This film is me down to a T and as expected all the magic is down to Ryan Reynolds. There are some special moments in the film where you spontaneously laugh your ass off but I won't spoil them.

Suffice to say that this is the best film I have seen in the last two years and you should drop any plans you have got for this weekend and get down to the cinema to watch it.

Death Race 2000 (1975) 2/10.

My mate and I inflict a crappy movie on each other every week, this was his choice. His funeral is next week.
