    For Bond to die in this film makes no sense because he has No Time To Die.

    Bond dies, Bond lives, Bond appears to die but it’s hinted that he’s still alive, virtually every proposed ending that I’ve seen has been labeled by some as
    “ predictable “ The fact is that no matter what is done it can be and will be compared to something in another film.

    Even with another soft reboot or whatever direction they take with the next era, if they chose to kill Bond off for any reason, it certainly wouldn't sit well with me and would leave a very bad taste in my mouth.

    What would really bother me about it is the inevitable gap following NTTD.
    Let's say we get a 5 year gap. That's five years of Bond being officially dead.
    Five years or more of it being canon that Bond is dead.
    Wouldn't sit right with me. It's not the same as killing Christopher Lee's Dracula off in each film and reviving him in the follow up.

    Excellent!

    Nice. David Zaritsky was invited too, I saw. Good for him- he deserves it.

    Cracking point actually. Whatever way this goes, it's going to upset someone.

    I predict the conclusion of the movie will show Bond struggling to survive. Perhaps he gets really badly injured & it’s a race against time to escape Safin’s lair (Final Ascent). Maybe we see the island explode & were left hanging on whether or not Bond gets out in time.

    My speculation is
    After Safin is killed, Bond stays behind to open the crater roof doors so the Navy can nuke the place into oblivion. Nomi escorts Swann and daughter off the island, but just as Bond is about to leave the doors start to close (as seen in the final trailer). So he has to stay behind to keep the doors open manually, and is assumed dead in the island obliteration. Then we get a TDKR style ending.

    That would be great. No cost scene back in London. No rolling down Whitehall to the Bond theme. That ending to Spectre was terrible. The sort of ending an A Level Film Studies student would come up with.

    SP ending was perfect for the kind of film SP was.

    I wish to swear but I can't. So I may just refer back to Bond and say "We have an old saying for that too, Georgi, and you're full of it." ;) IF you catch my drift on what I mean in response to that :P.

    I jest with you of course :). But that was my initial reaction. Safe to say Spectre is not my favourite!

    So, that moment in the documentary when Craig runs of screaming from Dave must be the time he broke his nose. Much funnier now we know it :D

    Perfect would be Bond and Madeleine landing in a dinghy via parachute after blowing up Blofeld's crater base (doesn't matter that they're in the middle of a desert) and the evading detection by the British military so they can make-out longer.

    ;)

    Like much of the ideas in Spectre it doesn't quite land but the idea of Bond detaching from the camera (highly unusual for an EON Bond film!) and driving into the distance to reflect the progression from the voyeuristic opening shot, I.e. he has cast off the shackles of both Blofeld's surveillance and MI6's control, at the very least had a thought behind it.

    If any of the story developments leading into it had worked, it would be as rousing as the Skyfall ending. Alas...

    Bond and Madeleine driving off into the sunset is a great ending conceptually and visually there was definitely a cool retro swagger to it, but it was a payoff that was completely unearned. At no point during the film are you convinced that Bond wants out, in fact it’s kind of the opposite, he plunges himself head first into the mission and maintains that drive throughout. We have Moneypenny flippantly telling him to get a life, Madeleine challenges his choice to do what he does, which he basically blows off, and then a couple of actions set pieces later they are madly in love with each other and Bond decides to walk away from it all after spending the entirety of Skyfall and Spectre reproving his worth? It’s really a miracle there was such good talent in front of and behind the camera because from a thematic and narrative perspective it’s bafflingly incoherent and probably deserves all the criticism that QoS’s script receives…. I’ll get off my soapbox now.
  • Graham Norton is such a great chatshow host.
    They showed 2 clips which were pretty cool. I cant wait to see this film.

    The Bond/Nomi clip was excellent, loving their dynamic already

    Yeah, caught me off guard how much fun a scene like that could be.

    What's more we're getting a glimpse at how different again Craig's performance is. The breadth and depth of his interpretation of the role over the tenure is really remarkable, especially when you consider how much his predecessors largely tried to standardise for the most part.

    I love the pace of the dialogue between Bond and Nomi. Very snappy, somewhat cheeky. Great timing on the delivery of the lines. I'm hyped.

    And there’s Phoebe Waller Bridge at her finest in that clip with Lashana. Cannot wait for next week

    yes the clip is great between Commander Bond and Nomi - Phoebe Waller-Bridge probably had her paws on this scene!

    Yes I thought he was great in that clip.

    That was more on brand than the average Norton episode- they didn't really talk about anything apart from the film.
    Malek's a bit prickly, isn't he?

    Bloody great clip, that one. Love the banter between the two.

    My god! Anyone who has doubts about the relationship that Nomi and Bond has... Put those fears to bed. Those lines were on point and on fire.. Bond gave as good as he damn got!
