"No Time To Die"  Ugh...  No one says it better, and hysterically so, than Anthony Lane (the best in the business) in his review in "The New Yorker".  Don't waste your money (although, the "senior" ticket price here was only $10).

We finally disagree about something!  I loved it!!  Though it would be hard for me to NOT love a Bond film. And that opening scene in the Italian village was breathtaking on many levels.

Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid  1973.  Had never seen it before, and now I know why. Not one of Peckinpah's best. Slow, pointless scenes, too much exposition, and once again taking extreme liberties with history. Also, Kris Kristopherson at 37 in no way looked like a 21 year-old Billy.  Plenty of toplessness though, which I guess was maybe the selling point in '73? Seemed just embarrassing in 2021.
