Well, theres nothing wrong will everyone talking about it. If we do that, eon might get it noticed. They need to know that the fans are not happy or they might continue to add it to the end. Saying onthing will get you nowhere. I know we cannot make them change it or start adding the gun barrel to the begining, but where not exactly going to keep quite about it are well. I am one of many that is very sad by it. It will take a while to sink in im afraid.
Well, this is a gun barrel thread and we are talking about it in the wrong place?
Not just one guy, Ive asked many reviewers and it is certainly at the end, a place where no one gives a shit about. Such a pointless idea.
"For what it's worth there are many people posting on forums complaining about the gun barrel scene being at the end of the new James Bond film, which, strictly speaking, is kind of an insult to the original films - those made before Barbara Broccoli and MG Wilson took over. Seeing as MGM co-finances the films perhaps they can at least consider approaching Eon to put the gun barrel at the beginning of the film - this is the correct position for the film. If the distributors can hold off a few days before sending the films out to the cinemas (in the UK) there is enough time to re-edit the film and stick the gun barrel at the front. I'm sure the editor of Skyfall, Stuart Baird, is capable of doing that.
There is nothing radical or 'fan geeky' about this suggestion, it seems perfectly reasonable. If Barbara Broccoli wants people to respect her as a James Bond producer perhaps she can respect the fans' wishes and put the gun barrel scene in the correct position. This is also the 50th anniversary of the franchise - all the more reason why the gun barrel should be in the right position. I hope someone from MGM bothers to read my post and considers contacting Eon. Please respect the franchise and put the gun barrel in the right place. Thank you."
I've tried my best to get them to consider changing the gun barrel scene. I don't think my posts will make any difference - heck, I'm just a nobody out there on the net! - but I've tried. You can view my two posts here:
My Facebook name is Stone Jones. I can't find any email or other online way to contact Eon Production so the best route is via MGM's Facebook page. Fans need to get pro-active on this. Just moaning on forums won't do much good, I fear.
I thought the same thing, you know? it's like they're trolling us.
I'll tell you exactly what's going to happen. Your letter will be intercepted and deleted.
I feel the gun barrel is at the end because...
I was so excited when i knew the gun barrel was back, then bamb,!!!!!! they place it at the end. Its just because i have grew up watching bond films with the barrel opening. Its hard for change.
Hope you guys feel how i do, i wanted a thrilling moment as the white circles rolling along the screen. Ending it wont give of the same feel will it.
@Gareth I don't think complaining will get them to listen to be honest. People complained about the QOS gunbarrel and they've done the same thing this time.
I think we'd better just go with it.
oh, well if it was attached to the gb is would make sence, but now it still seems daft at the end.
Anyone who saw the movie care to elaborate on that "something else"?
I could elaborate. But then I'd have to kill you.
Seriously though - the opening shot has its own impact and does the job of the gun barrel neatly enough. At least you'll get to watch it without the distraction of thinking 'where are the white dots?' like I did.
Anything like that?
But you don't have to confirm it.. i'll just wait for the movie.
oh, well if it was attached to the gb is would make sence, but now it still seems daft at the end. Does anyone remember the photo shot of another bathroom with a sink and toi
thats wouldnt be a gun barrel though would it. ?
Basically, just play nice.
Reading about the gunbarrell of Skyfall is really a let down and for me it's better to know before seeing it in the theater. This doesn't mean I won't like SF (it will be hard to do it) but I know I'm not alone in this one because we are Bond fans, and we see that details that common audience and critics don't see.
If it's gonna be a tradition from now on to have the gunbarrel at the end, my only consolation is to have 20 movies with a classical opening. That aside, tha gunbarrel at the end shouldn't happen in QOS and we weren't having this discussion.
I will enjoy SK but I hide can't my little disappointment about the gunbarrel...
I agree with you completely.
If they didn't change it after QOS why would they change it now?
Sorry but I think we're just going to have to live with it. I'm let down but it won't ruin the film and I'm glad I found out now instead of later.
