LOL. I'm guessing P & W have seen CR '67? It does feel like the dramatic version of it in some ways.
As a fan of the accomplished actor that was David Niven, I’d argue CR67’s issues have anything to do with his performance.
A non-existent plot, 5 credited directors and Sellers/Welles not getting along seem to be the reasons why this one derailed as catastrophically as it did. Niven on the other hand manages to keep his dignity in the mess that is Charles K. Feldman’s Casino Royale.
If anything, Niven is one of the few reasons to watch CR67.
Skyfall - Home Alone
SPECTRE - Austin Powers in Goldmember
No Time To Die - Casino Royale '67
Watching the three in the right column in a movie marathon could make for a very interesting trilogy!
Does it bother you?
Indeed. The blond Bond dies. Doesn't that right many alleged wrongs? Like a double negative or something? 😉
Every full moon he appears and complains about something, and disappears into the night.
Yeah, CR'67 is genuinely one of the strangest movies I've ever seen. At times it feels like it's a few different movies in one (which makes sense given the multiple directors).
There's actually some great stuff in it, especially the sets/comedy when Mata goes to Berlin. Then you have whatever the hell the weird torture scene is with Welles and Sellars... And yes, David Niven is definitely one of the better things about the movie.
It's not so much about the point, moreso about how the point is made.
Which is usually the problem with that particular poster.
He can have his opinion, though I'm not at all on friendly terms with CraigNotBonders. I remember a certain website... and to quote dame Judy Dench: inexcusable, I'm afraid.
I had a feeling he was one of those.
That's not factually correct is it? Not caring for Craig and his films doesn't equate to participating in that mischievous organization.
Better to stick to the films here. Complaints or otherwise.
I'm pretty sure there's a difference between not caring for the Craig films and what was posted.
However, you're right. Moving on.
I’m actually enjoying reruns of my favorite older shows like the original Hawaii Five-O and Magnum PI. I find the writing in those episodic series smarter and much more believable than in these Craig films where everything is so terribly scripted and forced. For starters I have yet to see an episode where the main villain in the episode turns out to be a brother or half-brother of the hero.
I bet you have yet to see an episode where the villain is another villain after facial surgery, where the hero gets his next clue from a talking parrot, where the hero fights a bloke with steel teeth and jaws, where the hero has to sneak into a hollowed-out volcano, ...
