How many times have you seen/will you see Skyfall

edited October 2012 in Skyfall Posts: 1,078
Just curious.
I really think you can kill the spirit of a film if you watch it too many times.
However, there are a lot to said for 2nd/3rd viewings of films etc.

I'm seeing SF for a second time tomorrow. Saw it last on tuesday, I couldn't imagine watching it twice in one day.

    After seeing clips of it, I probably won't even see it once. It would probably end up with me walking out on it, similar to what I did with Casino Royale. It looks even worse than Casino Royale, actually.

    Just out of curiosity, do you consider yourself a Bond fan?

    A fan of good Bond films.

    And you are not going to watch Skyfall because you already decided, without watching it, it's not good. Did I get it right?

    I watched the clips and the trailers they have released, all of them were bad. I'm not going to spend money on a film I know I'm going to walk out on.

    I'm sorry but I don't think you are a Bond fan at all.

    Because I don't like reboot Bond? Sorry I don't have a crap taste in film. So sorry to have offended someone I just met.

    Yes, he walked out of Casino Royale because it was a bad Bond film (his opinion, not mine), so i guess he will do the same with SF.

    The franchise has such a rich and varied history that there is something in there to suit everyone.

    You didn't offend me, but I very much doubt you have such a good taste in film (sorry if I offended you). Which other Bond films did you walk out of, I'm really curious to know.

    Dear Dr having seen Skyfall might I suggest that you do yourself
    A big favour go to a cinema buy a ticket and sit and watch what is by far & away the best dam film I have seen In a long long time you will enjoy!"

  • I am seeing it at least twice in theaters on opening weekend here in the U.S.

    I'm going once on Thursday, Nov. 8 for IMAX opening day and once over the weekend with with my family to a standard showing.

    Can you not understand English? I said the only Bond film I walked out on was CR, and I probably will if I go see Skyfall. I'm not just going to go to a Bond film just because it's a Bond film.

    Why do you guys even talk to this ..man. He is rude and all and certainly not interested in getting advice.

    I think @Sandy asked a perfectly reasonable question. eg did you walk out of QOS? No need to take that attitude.
  • @Dr_Metz, though I certainly don't agree with your opinion of CR and your intent for SF, I nonetheless feel you are entitled to it and the rest of us should respect it. If you don't like reboot Bond, so be it. Fortunately it seems most of the rest of us do.

    When the advice is invalid, there isn't a point to heed it.

    No, actually I was able to get through it. I didn't think it was as awful as everyone says, really.

    I know what I'm saying is a quite unpopular opinion, but for someone to say "You aren't a Bond fan" for disliking reboot Bond is just wrong. That's what really annoyed me.

    Just curious.

    I'll see it 4 times today (9am / 12am and later today 7pm -this one in the French dubbed version-/ 10pm).

    And yet I'm far less enthusiast about this movie than many here ! :) Well, I'm a fan !

    Oh, I understood very well (I would understand you in at least five different languages). I just didn't want to believe that someone might have walked out of CR and endured DAD for example. You are entitled to your opinion but I think your attitude... well the least I say about it the better.

    I was able to get through DAD, but that doesn't mean I like it.

    And your attitude is to say anyone who doesn't like the reboot era isn't a Bond fan?

    Once to begin with, no doubt at least once more at some stage.
  • I'm going to see it twice. Tonight, on my way there now actually (just stopped for a drink, long journey), once we get to London and get booked in at the hotel it's straight off to see Skyfall.

    And again next week, I'm visiting my sister and her kid desperately wants to see it, so I'm taking him.
  • I can't fathom the idea of walking out on a film. You can't properly make your mind up on a film till its over. Often even when the credits are rolling and it is time to leave I still find I need a few hours or a nights sleep to let the film sink in. You have no right to critique a film you haven't seen all the way through, regardless how much a 1st and 2nd act offend your senses, whats not to say something will happenin the last ten minutes to completely change your appreciation of the previous 90? for example I remember when i first saw the usual suspects, I was so bored but it was all worth it for that ending.

    I'm not going to like a film because 10 minutes of it were good. I was also able to later finish CR, and my opinion on it didn't change.

  • I've seen it three times now and a fourth due on Monday. Still think it's great.

    I've seen it twice. Once at the premiere and just come out of it now. I'll be seeing it again tonight and twice again tomorrow. Thank God for the cineworld card!

    Once will do me. I have Blu Ray at home and can wait for that. But if I had a cinema card then I would see it multiple times. But I go cinema rarely and the cost of the card would not make it economic for me.
