"ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE" (1969) Review

At least ten years or more must have passed since I last saw the 1969 Bond movie, “ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE (OHMSS)”. EON Production’s sixth entry in the Bond franchise has the distinction of being the only movie that starred Australian male model-turned-actor, George Lazenby. It was the first EON movie that did not star Sean Connery – already fixed in the public’s mind as the only actor who can portray James Bond. And it was the only movie that was directed by former film editor, Peter Hunt. Read more... )

"THE WOLF OF WALL STREET" (2013) Review

I can think of only three previous times in which one of director Martin Scorsese's films has courted controversy. The first time the director courted real controversy was the release of his 1976 film, "TAXI DRIVER". He also encountered controversy from two other movies - "THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST" (1988) and 1997's "KUNDUN". Scorsese and controversy have met once again . . . this time in the form of his latest release, "THE WOLF OF WALL STREET". Read more... )

"THE BODY IN THE LIBRARY" (2004) Review

I might as well say it. Agatha Christie's 1942 novel, "The Body in the Library" has never been a particularly favorite of mine. Nor have I ever been that fond of the 1984 television adaptation that starred Joan Hickson. So, when ITV aired another adaptation of the novel, I was not that eager to watch it. But I did.
