Regarding the focus, well it likely came down to practical choices for the footage shot. And also since Bernard Lee was showcased that way in TWINE, simpler can be better to not distract from other content.
Btw, I'm very surprised that some think there have been different Bond characters. Nothing wrong with that if someone thinks so, but this thought would probably have never occurred to me.
Yep, Craig is my favourite Bond. I was only young when he was cast, but I remember the constant speculation before he was announced
I have no doubt the next guy cast will be great, but it's sad knowing NTTD is a real ending
You never know, maybe he's still got a DAF in him... or (dread the thought), a NSNA?
James Bond has trouble fitting his Christmas shopping into his busy schedule of World saving...
"No Time To Buy"
If he has No Time To Buy, then he will have to Buy Another Day.
I’ll get my coat.
Boxing Day sales here we come!
I think that after Safin's Island, he has
No Dime To Pay
Probably that story takes precedent over fan service; it sort of looks like in that alcove M was sitting in there were several portraits of "M's" or other important figures, it stands to reason that one of the portraits was Bernard Lee, but if there was a scene where it was visible, it ended up on the cutting room floor for any of a myriad of reasons.
I can't imagine they'd sacrifice pacing or include a shot they would otherwise have discarded for a piece of fan service. It may not seem like a big deal, but as I understand it, such is the delicate art of film editing.
Beat me to it!
I’ll buy NTTD just to complete my Craig Bond series. A friend said he wanted to watch it, but hasn’t seen the other Craig Bond films, and I told him that was a bad idea. Need to watch the others first for sure. I guess you could watch it without the others, but it would leave one wondering about a lot of events and details.
A friend of mine had only seen CR and SF. I watched Craig's first four leading up to seeing NTTD with him and he said afterward he's glad we did it that way.
I saw the film with someone who has never seen a Craig one (and doesn't like Bond at all). She was able to follow the emotional beats of the story well enough with no prior knowledge and enjoyed the film so much she wanted to see it a second time through!
Honestly a little surprised at how well NTTD does at conveying the stuff from other films that are core to the film (Vesper, the stuff with White/Madeleine). I thought it was a bit of an impossible task going in, but they do it well enough!
I still really like the idea of watching NTTD, and then Spectre.
You don't need to know much really going into NTTD to understand what's happening. And then you get to see Blofeld in action.
Also, there's something interesting about watching Bond get blown to bits, and then watch him walking around Mexico with a skeleton suit, after "the dead are alive".
Wow. Did this guy actually watch the film? He draws conclusions that are way off.
I thought they somehow situated it pretty well too. I don’t know if I ever saw so much storyline and detail packed into one film.
I liked it before, but I like it much more in context for sure, especially the very beginning with the train.
Yeah absolutely agree mate. One of my favourite scenes in NTTD, on the edge of my seat in every viewing. Daniel really shines as Bond when he's in action
Opening the doors is magnificent and one of my favourite moments of the NTTD score, when that Bond theme kicks in and then that change in tempo around 2 minutes is thrilling
