The PTS is perfect. It has everything I want from a Bond movie!
Here to hop on the "in agreement" train with you lot.
I haven't mentioned it yet on here, I know others have, but I love the jump scare we get in Norway in the PTS; it's very effective.
I really wish I could've seen it in IMAX. I was going to last year, when it was opening at the same time here as it was in the UK and I didn't have a baby, but that put a stop to those plans this month. It was still a blast in regular theaters, even if mine had some audio issues seemingly.
Besides missing more Italy, inspevialy there is missing Jamaica footage in the movie as i said in delete scenes thread and missing lair story with Safin. Of course i am happy on this moment after one view with pacing and there try to make it more standalone.
I don't see why not? I haven't heard about that.
Ah, there’s an agenda.
For the record,Iv got nothing against the fellow.Never met him,don’t know him,could care less if he made a great Bond movie,or a terrible Bond movie.And an allegation is just that until it’s been proven there was ill intent.
I already own one movie from him (Jane Eye from 2011 with Judi Dench) on BD since 24 October 2018. In review that i read about Jane Eye that is fan of natural light and use candels in the movie.
Are some people mabey consider Martin Campbell have been a better choose or that Cary Joji Fukunaga is the new Martin Campbell. Because NTTD have a lot of remembers of Goldeneye. With 25 years (1995-2020) i hoped a view, but it be more then i expect and very subtil. In story or in the background. We know that P&W not always be that subtil (Die Another Day), whyle of course NTTD made mistake with re-using Armstrong.
The other way around that he was fan of AVTAK i don't see back exept in locations (again.. as in that's nice Skyfall to kill for.) and deaths in the movie.
I've watched the movie multiple times with friends online (in addition to theater showings) — and every viewing that scare gets someone good. It's awesome!
Yes, I've had the same experience ;))
- Safin approaching the Swann house
- Young Madeleine on the cracking ice lake
- The DB5 doing doughnuts with the machine guns
- Bond in the Cuban Spectre party
- The tracking shot of London and the V8 Vantage at the MOD
- The V8 Vantage approaching the Swann House in Norway
- The overhead shots in the Norway chase
To me, Fukunaga is a director who demonstrates that he "gets" Bond, unlike say Forster or Tamahori (or even Mendes in Spectre). There is a definitely energy and urgency, a 'crackle' if you like, to his direction, especially in the action sequences. And they are very well blocked and shot, confidently so. He knew what he wanted in terms of look and style. Very little shakey cam in the action too (staircase fight aside, but even then it is always clearly visible) and clean, considered editing.
I can take issue with narrative elements of the movie, but from a directorial and pure technical perspective, it is very strong.
I do think “Cary’s Version” is likely 10-15 mins longer — I want to see more Jamaica, more villain motivation, etc. But I understand the pressure to keep it well under 3 hours.
He absolutely needs to return to the Bond director’s chair one day.
He needs to be back.
Even the sequences I wasn't too keen on from a writing perspective still have a focus and energy that helped them ultimately work for me.
Thanks for sharing. I like Fukunaga, he's very talented and I'd happily have him back for Bond 26. I'd be interested to see what he'd do with a clean slate
His direction is first rate and unpretentious. Much like Martin Campbell in a lot of ways. Would love him to do another one 👍
