    Licence to Kill

    ★★½

    Have slowly worked my way through the Bond films over the past year... Been an interesting journey as I knew had bits of all of them but not all completely... Watched LICENCE TO KILL for the first time 29 years. It's an interesting failure, has some ballsy ideas, the more brutal edge, Bond going rogue is good.

    The Living Daylights

    ★★★

    Solid start for Dalton. The Bond of my childhood. Must have seen the trailer for this a hundred times at the head of various rented video tapes, so when he says "Whoever she was I must have scared The Living daylights out of her." I give a nostalgia shiver that takes me back 30 years.

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    Deeply moving and humanistic, beautifully shot with incredible sound design; the script elegantly balances the dramatic narrative while gradually submerging the audience in the challenge of how to communicate with the aliens. This film resonated with me long after I had left the screening and made me want to rush home and hug my kids. The epitome of why I adore going to the cinema.
