Are the Komodo Dragons the silliest things in the Craig era so far?

Similar to the Connery era and the Moore era threads - What part of Craig's films did you find especially "silly"?

    Fixing the cuff links. But that was silly in a good way.

    I loved the cufflinks fixing, a bit of old Bond silliness. :D

    Definitely the Komodo dragons. Bloody awful.

    I dislike the scene where Bond "hangs on" to the lift, again owed to CGI.

    Yeah, to me, this kind of stuff separates Bond from the standard action/adventure stuff.

    'He hacked us!' - I just hate this. I hate it. It was dated in 2012, I imagine it'll just get worse.

    I hope someone in the head office shouted that line.

    :)) May have been a bit more swearing as well.

    I think in QOS, one minute M wants Bond arrested and disarmed to be taken home. After he escapes, all of a sudden M, loves him again and let's him go ?
    "He's my agent and I trust Him" I find that a massive turn around. ;)

    I think it is the goofiest, and a bit of a crap scene in an otherwise good film.

    It also didn't help that Craig was doing some very strange face acting during that scene...

    The parachute jump in QOS. The Craig-equivalent of Brosnan surfing on an iceberg.

    I mean, come on guys:

    I actually love the scene; it's a nod to pulp novels of the era from which Bond came. I don't find the CGI nearly as offensive as some make it out to be.
    Two scenes that come to mind as silly are the pasted on faces in the PTS of Skyfall and the parachute scene, particularly the last second opening, in Quantum.

    Shaky camera in QOS.

    The dragons didn't bother me and added to the excitement.

    John Logan is the sillest thing for me in the Craig area. :P

    Definitely the dodgy face imprint on the bike/grand bazaar rooftop scene.

    Yes, the Craig mask for me too.

    Craig's eating from this scene is pretty silly.

    The apocalypse now arrival of the chopper in SF

    the underground crash on 007's ........

    Silva goes the Hobbit

    the parachute jump from QoB was an insult to the real air work from TSWLM, MR & OP.

    Oh God, that line is just the pits. Took me right back to Boris and his bloody 'spike'.

    The parachute scene in QOS. Both the cgi and also the fact that the chute opens up a few seconds before the ground. And of course the fact that it was done for real decades before.

    Actually, come to think of it, Q's role is probably the silliest thing in Craig's era. I mean he's meant to be the Quartermaster i.e. the bloke who equips Bond with his guns, radios, (non) exploding pens etc. But if you watch the scene in SF, it appears he's also head of IT security (not very well either by the looks of it). No wonder MI6 is always getting blown-up and infiltrated if this is how they run things!

    I really enjoyed it too.

    No way. "That last hand... nearly killed me" was way cooler than the Komodo dragons.

    The CGI, in the parachute jump in QOS, was bad !

    Yes, it was easily as bad as that in DAD. To think that they used to do these sort of stunts for real in the James Bond films too (see TSWLM and MR PTS)!

    Look, the komodo dragons were nothing compared to the Italian lady lamenting her broken jars of tomatoes or whatever. We're in the middle of a chase, one that's difficult to follow as it is, and now I'm pulled out of the action by an old lady and some broken glass. That's silly. The dragons? I'm fine with those.
