Here we go, I'll start.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2010) - This movie is a joke. At first it's interesting, then it's boring and then it's just funny/pathetic. And they put it in a "horror" genre. Words are not sufficient. Nosferatu is turning in his grave. 3/10

The Man With the Golden Gun (1974)

British spy film. Not a fan of Clifton James' character in this one and the last one. Feels a bit too silly for a movie like this. Apart from that I really liked this one. Sir Christopher Lee played a very good villain. The movie is also definitely inspired by Sir Christopher's past as a horror legend. Especially that beginning.

Justice Society WWII.

DAMN that was GOOD! It's amazing how the DC animated movies are of such high quality and most of their live action ones SUCK. I've been DYING to watch this one.

This one is definitely worth a watch.

The King's Man (2021)

British-american spy action comedy film. Watched this at the cinema yesterday. A great cast (Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Tom Hollander, Tom Hollander (he's playing three characters), Harris Dickinson, Daniel BrΓΌhl, Djimon Hounsou, Charles Dance and more) playing very interesting characters in a movie that focuses on several events during World War I and the birth of the Kingsman organization. And it even looks like we'll get another movie. While this one was pretty much all about WWI, with Adolf Hitler being introduced in the mid-credits scene (don't forget to watch it) it just has to be about WWII. Overall as a fan of the franchise I definitely enjoyed this. And if you're interested in WWI and how it all started it also gives you some points to further research. Of course it's not 100% accurate (I'd say it's some alternate history stuff, which you can definitely see in the mid-credits scene when Erik Jan Hanussen is introducing a young Adolf Hitler to Vladimir Lenin), but overall it's still very entertaining. I can definitely recommend this.

Yeah, the movie has some problems, but it definitely doesn't deserve bad reviews (and poor box office) it's getting :(

The Wrath Of Man.
A Guy Ritchie flick but set in Los Angeles. It felt strangely uncomfortable because it seems the back-and-forth banter that is common in his films didn't quite work in American dialogue. The latter part of the film, where this was abandoned, felt much more natural.

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

British spy film. Iconic villains, iconic car. After the previous two outings this might be Roger Moore's most Bond Bond movie so far. I liked it.

Moonraker (1979)

British spy film. So because of the success of movies like Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (they literally use that famous 5 tone melody in this one) they put their plans to make For Your Eyes Only on pause and made this one. And I liked it. Also, Hugo Drax isn't talked about as much as other Bond villains I feel like. But Michael Lonsdale portrays him surprisingly well. In my opinion he's played Drax in one of the more out-there Bond movies as one of the so far most grounded and realistic characters. At least it feels like that to me. And in the end even Jaws turns good. Overall I like this one a lot, although the laser weapons and the shootout in space at the end were a bit over-the-top.

For Your Eyes Only (1981)

British spy film. The first movie without M, due to Bernard Lee passing away before it even went into pre-production. They explain his absence away saying M's on leave, but it'll be sad not seeing him in future Bond movies. Overall this movie was nothing special. Some good stunts and sets but that's about it. That scene with Margaret Thatcher at the end is also a bit too silly for the rest of the movie.

Octopussy (1983)

British spy film. It's not great, but it does stand out more than some of the other recent ones. Seeing Robert Brown as M from now on instead of the great Bernard Lee does need some getting used to, though. But yeah, overall I thought this one was very entertaining. I still can't get over how stupid the title is (definitely one of the sillier ones), but thankfully the movie itself is better than the title.

A View To A Kill (1985)

British spy film. Another pretty good one. Roger Moore's last one, which is a shame because his Bond just started growing on me. Interesting villains portrayed by Christopher Walken and Grace Jones even though her character is helping Bond later after Walken's character abandons her. This movie was definitely entertaining as well. It's pretty much what you'd expect from a spy film in the middle of the 80s.

Oh man, I just read that this was not just Roger Moore's last one, but also the last time Lois Maxwell played Miss Moneypenny. It's sad to see her go as well. One of my favourite characters from the franchise so far.

The Living Daylights (1987)

British spy film. First one with Timothy Dalton. It's pretty different to the previous ones. Mainly because we got a different Bond, a different M, a different Moneypenny. The only character that really makes it feel like it's a Bond movie is Q, apart from him it feels so disconnected. Yeah, so overall I thought this was okay for Dalton's first Bond.

Die dunkle Seite des Mondes (2015)

German thriller film. Watched this yesterday. The concept is very good. Some of the actors did well in their roles (JΓΌrgen Prochnow and Marco Lorenzini for example) but others fell flat. Mainly Moritz Bleibtreu as the main character. The movie is about a successful lawyer who starts taking hallucinogenic mushrooms which reveal his darker side and Bleibtreu just doesn't really get that across in my opinion. I'd actually like this to be remade with some great lead actor who can really play that part. JΓΌrgen Prochnow could still be cast in the same role because he played his character pretty much perfectly. But that's not really surprising, given how great Prochnow is in general. I mean, have you seen Das Boot (1981)? Or Dune (1984)?
So yeah, overall I thought the idea of the movie was great but thanks to the lead not being as convincing as he should be it turned out just good. Not really worth watching more than once.

Pleasure (2021)

An indie film about a Swedish girl moving to America to become a pornstar, a lot of the roles are filled by actual pornstars. I thought it was entertaining, it dabbles in both the dark/depressing sides of the porn industry and also the perks and glamour of being a 'star'. Very graphic film so if that's not your thing I would avoid it.

Licence to Kill (1989)

British spy film. Yeah, I like this one. More than the previous one. For me, Dalton becomes Bond with this one. But it also concludes his run, sadly. Good villains, interesting story. It's definitely darker than its predecessors, I mean Benicio del Toro's character is falling into an industrial grinder feet first for example. The ricocheting bullets playing the James Bond theme towards the end of the movie was kinda silly but it didn't take away much. So yeah, overall I did enjoy this one.
