The Dark Knight (2008)
A hero who truly longs for justice. A truly twisted and evil villain. Lots of thrilling actions sequences. Moral dilemmas with serious consequences. Cool gadgets. A beautifully executed bank heist. Really, what’s not to like?
(So there’s not much I can say that hasn’t already been stated by thousands of other critics, and really by this point, you have either seen it or already know if you want to see it for yourself or not, so my vote of confidence is just a drop in a very large ocean.)
Casino Royale (1967)
What a piece of trash! There were very few laughs in this "comedy" and the plot was so disjointed it seemed that every scene was completely unconnected to the previous one. Even the presence of Peter Sellers, David Niven, Orson Welles, and Woody Allen could not save this film. If you see only one spy spoof movie, see Austin Powers.
Coming up next: a movie that is a mystery and a movie that is a mystery to me why it is considered to be a great film.
