    Hey if EON did everything we wanted all the time, being a Bond fan might be very boring ;)

    And it gives us a chance to brush up on our Photoshopping skills :)

    In all honesty? I am so glad they used the standee art for the British Quad poster. And I'm going to say it now: This is Daniel Craig's BEST Bond pose from all of his films! I love his naughty smirk. He IS agent 007! Daniel Craig IS James Bond ;) !!

    The bullethole detracts from the title. Though I do think the title needs moving up to more like halfway to balance the white space Above better.
  • We should be getting another location video from Heineken tomorrow via their mobile promotion.

    These articles can be flushed through the toilet once the first reviews come out :-). Really, I think these articles are solely written because of super high anticipation.....and because such crap editors become a little nervous once the premiere date of "SPECTRE" comes closer (30 days now more or less!).

    Second of 5 Heineken vlogs. (now with actual official audio used, with music and everything). This time, it's Rome.



    Austria out October 9, Morocco on October 18, London on October 27.

    How many action scenes are there in this movie? Seems like an awful lot. Too many in fact.

    Seems like 5 to me. Which is quite a lot, but probably best to see how they're executed before we judge.

    When it comes to 'chase action sequences', then there are 4:
    --> Mexico: The PTS, with foot chase and helicopter fight (start of the film)
    --> Italy: The Rome car chase (I read in Empire it is edited into an 8 min (!!) car chase, end of 1st half)
    --> Austria: The snow chase sequence, with three Landrovers and an airplane (according to Empire edited to around 6,5 min, start/mid 2nd half)
    --> United Kingdom: Boat chase over the river Thames, with helicopter (finale)

    Then there is a pretty big 'blow-up' sequences:
    --> Morocco: I guess something big will be blown up :-P (near end of 2nd half). And there is a fight sequence on....a bloody train :-P!

    In The Netherlands the film is now also confirmed 155 minutes. Which really makes it a long film. But looking at the high amount of action sequences....more or less equally dispersed/divided throughout the film, I expect it an easier experience than, let's say, the 164 mins of "The Dark Knight Rises".

    Then there is Sam Mendes....and I do believe there will be a wonderful 'conjucture' of action -- character/drama -- action -- character/drama -- action -- character/drama -- action -- character/drama -- action. In such a way that the film will keep its pace, especially in the 2nd half/finale of the film. So I am starting to thinkkk......that "SPECTRE" could really be a masterpiece. Equalling "Casino Royale", "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and "From Russia With Love".

    Part of the reason why "SkyFall" hit us like a bomb, is that it was so un-Bond-ian near the end. All the insight into Bond's parents took a lot of screentime really. Same with the death of 'M', which was a rather radical thing to do. A bit unprecedented really. And it makes it a unique film, like "OHMSS" (death of Tracy, wedding proposal in a barn, love collage) and "CR" (suicide of Vesper, another believable love story, shower scene). I think, especially post-TheDarkKnight people were ready for such experiments. BUT, it doesn't mean that it's liked a lit by many Bond fans in here. For many fans in here, @RC7 included, the end dragged a bit (I didn't mind, I love all that drama and extra insight in Bond's past). And I thinkkk this is not going to happen with "SPECTRE".

    Hence why I think "SPECTRE" will satisfy us more in this community....and will perhaps not result in so much discussion. But I do think there will be more 'uniform agreement' on here, as to why we could really love this film. I don't think "SPECTRE" will be a 'cheap sequel'. And looking at the action, I think "SPECTRE" will baffle us all, and will be a league on its own.
  • Not sure if this is considered a spoiler but purely based on what we have seen here and there, I would get to six
    1. Mexico City (explosion, running, helicopter)
    2. Austria snow (plane, cars,...)
    3. Rome (car chase)
    4. Train (Mr. Hinx fights Bond)
    5. London (Thames boat, shooting, bridge?)
    6. Morocco (pics of Bond shooting his way with Madeleine)

    I do think the insane amount of action sequences also explains the running time of 155 minutes. This Bond is......eh....big B-)

    Well, I hope you're right on the masterpiece front, but that is something so hard to attain. It would take such a perfect concoction of ingredients that you can't really plan it, you just have to hope everything clicks into place and it resonates emotionally. CR has the distinction, as do OHMSS and FRWL, of having some of the best dramatic scenes in the series. This is the key to SP, for me, not so much the action. I have to say, from what I've seen I'm incredibly excited. I'm starting to feel like this could be genuinely brilliant and the release of the theme has only heightened my excitement. I think there's going to be enough light to counteract the dark (which I'm not sure SF quite got right) to make this feel very satisfying.

    I think where SF went wrong was the light and dark didn't counteract each other. they didn't mix. There were breezy bits with humour and dark, foreboding segments. I hope SP has that 'lightness of touch' they're always talking about, to address the dark without miring the film.

    How many action scenes did CR and SF have? These films had a decent balance between action and non action scenes although I would have still preferred a bit more downtime and less action, but yeah, this is Bond...

    3 each

    CR had the running, the stair fight, Miami, Venice, the rope (which was action, just different), the Aston flip

    .....the movie is 155 minutes. So I think there's space for a lot of character-driven drama and detective esque spying as well...

    There is a difference between an action setpiece and an action scene!
    CR had three action setpieces (Madagascar, Miami and Venice) and a couple of action scenes, like the fist fight.

    SF had two action setpieces (PCS and the finale at the 'Skyfall' house) and three action scenes (China, Macao and London)

    SP will have five action setpieces and one action scene (fistfight on train).

    Yeah, that's what I meant about them not getting it right. CR nailed it, I thought.

    Although you could argue the London sequence with the train crash included was as much a setpiece as the finale.

    Absolutely. The entire footchase through the London Underground and Whitehall I found a gripping, dramatic action setpiece. Perhaps not entirely Bond-esque and more belonging to a realistic political thriller.....but I loved it. Until the very end (shoot-out).

    Yeah, that's what I meant about them not getting it right. CR nailed it, I thought.

    The only thing that felt out of place for me was the last setpiece in "CR". The falling house in Venice....well, I liked it. But it was a bit too 'straight-into-my-face' after quite long romantic wanderings, that started right after the torture sequence...and basically went on until Vesper went to the bank in Venice.

    Probably this is also the nature of the novel (very low on action). But I think it would have been better to reduce the 'romantic wanderings' a bit, getting a bit faster to that action sequence in Venice..and then conclude with a bit more tense drama, in which Bond openly confronts Vesper for betraying her, perhaps slapping her.

    And then she quietly commits suicide....without Bond. For me the suicide of Vesper could have been handled a bit better also....

    Venice was too long and the visuals too dark. It was dragging a bit.

    But the suicide was heartbreaking really. Well done IMO and the acting afterwards going from deepest despair to rage within seconds was brilliant.
