Good points there. CR was a shocker in that regard, being both a great Bond film and film in general, although not as refined as Skyfall. The latter was released in a perfect storm of circumstances that elevated the prestige of the Bond brand to levels of acclaim not seen before. While Skyfall's success felt organic, I think the producers subsequently feel hand-tied to this prestige blockbuster status that set unrealistic expectations for Spectre. No Time to Die feels less forced in that sense despite the aggressive awards campaigning.
It is criminal that Barry was never nominated for a Bond score; same for Ken Adam.
Exactly. Things HAVE changed regarding Bond's status in the film industry.
I liked it but I think the ending really pulls the rug from the whole thing.
As far as NTTD goes, I would like to see it get nominated for song, sound (I mean, the scene at Vesper's grave alone is worthy) and cinematography.
I was just thinking, if it gets nominated for Sound Design, I bet all my money that scene is the little vignette they use when it's announced.
My God, I'm thirsty today...
Yeah, it's a wonderful moment. I loved it the first time and it still sticks out to me even on repeat viewings.
Yes, but is "Oscar-y". ;)
I can't think of a time where I saw it done better than it was there. Although the loudness of IMAX may have been a contributing factor to it's effectiveness on initial viewing. Especially the way the music is also fiddled with and then comes back into clarity as Bond runs on to the bridge.
God, I wish I was a BAFTA award.
Fair enough. Which spring to mind?
They might have to do a Bond film set in Hollywood, directed by Steve McQueen or Danny Boyle, with Daniel Day-Lewis as Q and Meryl Streep as the villain. "A Kill for a View" perhaps.
Obviously had NOTHING specifically to do with her performance from CR. ;)
"In Daniel Craig’s final portrayal of James Bond, he and filmmakers discuss the pivotal Safin’s Lair scene in NO TIME TO DIE – at which James Bond makes the ultimate sacrifice. Featuring original songwriters Billie Eilish & Finneas O’Connell."
Thanks for sharing this! Love when Sandgren calls it religious.
Yep. Better than nothing
Worst thing is I’ll have to try forcing myself to watch Nightmare Alley. That looks horrible, but people seem to love Guillermo del Toro’s empty movies.
Blade II is still his best.
I would guess it will win song but that's it.
