This one made me laugh out loud:
Good god, not a return to the Cluseau-like 70's and 80's. No thanks.
As others have said numerous times here, it will really come down to the script and the director.
The hazards of posting after a night on the lash.
Moments of inspiration and clear lucidity interspersed with utter gibberish.
New ideas? 'Hovercraft chase'? Yep they've never done that before. 'Cruise ship'? Just throwing out random words constitutes an idea does it?
Have to say I love the notion of Bond playing 'criquet' although I'm still trying to work out if that is where you try to hit a six with a huge mallet or try and hit balls through hoops with a cricket bat.
This guy is one more shot of vodka from being inspired.
This is something I agree with actually. Well it depends on whether Craig comes back or not. But if there's a new actor I'd like them to differentiate him from Craig in the same way that they differentiated Moore from Connery. The brands are a big part of that, imo. So no more Aston Martin, no more Tom Ford, no more Omega. He has to remain stylish but I want the next Bond to feel different.
And while we're at it can we get rid of vodka martini shaken not stirred entirely? I liked how the Craig era played with it and how it came to its natural conclusion in SP (finally says the full catchphrase, and the bar doesn't even serve alcohol) but honestly it doesn't even give me the slightest sense of fanboy joy when Bond says it. It just feels like going through the motions, I'd rather Bond's drinking habits varied a bit like they do in the novels (although to be fair I do remember Fleming's Bond drinking bourbon more than anything else). Plus they actually moved away from it. Moore never said it and I'm not sure Lazenby did either. They went a good 20 years without it. So lets move on again please.
And I think this goes without saying, but lets let the DB5 ride off into the sunset with Craig. Not sure why they keep using it but it has to stop. One of the reasons I loved the DB10 was that it was a genuine attempt at creating a new icon (a car developed just for the film). More of that please.
My dear Chris.
As usual you get it.
Nominated for post of the year!
NicNac picks himself off the floor and wipes the tears from his eyes.
Also, what the hell is a car carrier fight sequence?
Old wives tale. Bond women have been strong and independent since like forever.
Pussy, Tracy, Aki, Anya (supposedly), Holly Goodhead, even Honey was strong & independent to an extent. Into the 80s - only Stacey is totally wet, and even she is willing to stand up to Zorin.
"Indiana Jones" is a very convincing character for me :-) Or do you mean ... ah ... that is true...
The concept in itself is good. In order to counteract governments messing in their business, Spectre have managed, through fear, intimidation, bribery and terrorism, to get countries to join forces to build a highly sophisticated intelligence gathering network. Which they have a back door into.
This really needed to be the driver of the film, with perhaps the Spectre element revealed towards the end of the movie. Also, calling the movie 'Spectre' doesn't help.
Additionally Bond is never disadvantaged by the whole Nine Eyes angle. How does Nine Eyes impact Bond directly, as well as MI6. Perhaps if Bond were to go on a mission and the whole thing go belly up because Spectre have been listening in on the mission in progress.
So much potential with this kind of story just not made best use of.
The hate is coming from the establishment press under orders. Their owners don't like the anti-NWO, anti-surveillance angle of the movie. They want movies that condition us to accept such things. Never trust corporate media critics for a fair review. They always have an agenda and seldom give an honest review. Trust word of mouth -- but even then you have to be careful because peoples perceptions are affected by what they read in the press. SP was a great Bond movie.
This actually could be true. That thought came to my mind as well after SP came out.
The same thing could be the reason why Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad got extremely bad reviews from the media. Both films are highly subversive, and they present the system as corrupt and deceitful. In BVS, the government makes deals with criminals and creates a monster that causes death and destruction.
That said, I dislike SP, but for different reasons. The Nine Eyes subplot is the part of the film I somewhat like.
I agree 100% with this post. That would have been a fantastic move. Especially introducting Spectre to the puppetmasters at the end of the movie. It's rare Bond movies have a surprising ending. Imagine the rush you'd get going into Bond 24 (it would need a different title to 'Spectre') thinking that the movie was solely focusing on Bond v Nine Eyes, only to have it revealed that Spectre and Blofeld are back!
I have some issues with the third act, but nothing that sinks the film. With the torture scene's aftermath fixed up a little bit (to show Bond struggling to escape) I'd have very little to complain about when it comes to this film. It's like QoS all over again for me, seeing the greatness in a movie that hasn't yet caught on to a lot of people. But I shall march on...
Both films, especially the latter, have really gotten me thinking consciously of how sound is used in films in a way few Bond films have. The way the team realized scenes like the Rome meeting, the Bond/White talk and Hinx fight in SP or the shooting competition or Scotland scenes in SF (with all the sounds of the moors and highlands) really give a whole new life to the films.
This movie wasn't good. I mean at start it was alright but after multiple viewings there are so many dumb things.
Blofeld being 007 brother
The whole "oh he's not blofeld! he's someone else!" thing they did before the movie
Bond falling in love easily for no reason
Bond's brain being electrified and still being able to know things and beat people
Bond ending up in some pseudo happy ending with Swann was bad idea as well.
Bond going rogue again 2nd movie in a row wasn't needed as well.
Bond sleeping with Bellucci after her husband died..seemed weird even though I get it she didn't love him and bla bla
