Our Oscar Series continues with Part III, Elvis.  Baz Luhrmann’s musical biopic drew polarizing responses from both movie fans and Elvis fans.  On one hand, Austin Butler’s performance is great, and very Oscar worthy.  At the same time, Luhrmann’s verry stylized approach somehow seems shallow and a bit too much, all at once.  We have a heated...

License to Kill (1989)

Our Bond series continues with License to Kill, one of Timothy Dalton’s two entries.  He’s a polarizing 007, for sure.  Count me as one of his defenders.  I like the dark edginess he brings to the role.  Additionally, this film has killer action scenes, a strong female lead in Carey Lowell, and meatier story for...
