Mr. Mendo reviews Skyfall, the latest film in the James Bond franchise, starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem.
Strange Days (1995)
“It takes a lot of gall on the part of the filmmakers to reenact both the Rodney King beating and the Rodney King riots here. It’s embarrassingly heavy-handed in 2014; I can’t imagine how it played three years after the actual riots.”Skyfall (2012)
“Granted, it’s far, far superior to the last meta-Bond film they tried (that would be Die Another Day), but it doesn’t have much of an identity of its own.”Commentary Track: Forrest Gump
Mr. Mendo revisits his Forrest Gump review, one of his most-watched reviews ever, to provide behind-the-scenes insight into how and why it was made.Django Unchained (2012)
“Will people look back on Django Unchained as Tarantino's masterwork? Most likely not, as Pulp Fiction is so culturally ingrained, and Inglourious Basterds is much more daring. However, Django is that rare film that just works on every level.”Skyfall (2012)
“This is the most interestingly human, yet still recognizably Bond that the character has seemed in a long time, if ever.”An Interview with Albert Moses, Beloved British Character Actor
“It’s not easy to make your way in a strange country, but to make your way and end up a Knight of the Order of St. John? Not such an easy thing to do. Throw in some documentary work, motorcycle stunts, and being James Bond’s costar not once, but twice, and that sounds like a sweet deal to me. The only man I know of who did all this is Albert Moses, so join me as we discuss crass comedy, Dinka documentaries, manic Maharajahs, and much, much more!”
