Casino Royale (2006)

One of the fun things about going through my old Cinema Sentries reviews is reading some of my old work. Ok, sometimes it is less fun than it is cringe-inducing, but I still enjoy reading what I wrote many years ago. I wrote a review of the first of Daniel Craig’s James Bond outings back in 2012. Truth be told I have no memory of writing this review. I thought I had only written a review of Octopussy for the Cinema Sentries Bond-a-thon, but I guess I wrote this too.


Sometimes reading my old reviews sends me back to when I wrote them, but not this. It is literally completely lost to my mind. But hey, you can read it now too, if you like. Just click here.

Octopussy (1983)


Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while. I have these ideas of posting things every day. Of turning this site into an old-school blog where I write movie reviews, casually talk about the music I’m listening to, and maybe tell stories about my life. But when it comes to actually writing I get distracted and nothing comes out. Maybe this week I’ll get better at it.

Until then we’ll talk about James Bond. Several years ago the folks at Cinema Sentries got together and reviewed all of the James Bond movies. I got to talk about Octopussy, a movie I hadn’t seen since I was a kid (and haven’t seen since I wrote this review). It wasn’t as good as I remembered, and it certainly didn’t live up to that ridiculous title, but it was still kind of fun.

Anyway, here’s my review.
