Perhaps a symbolic reference to the film entering, dare I say, uncharted territory. ;)
"Bond, use your watch to open that door"
Even the name 'Q-DAR' sounds very much like a video game gadget rather than a movie one!
You should see some hobos.
Yes, and I actually found M's zoom-briefing on the plane to evoke a similar feeling. Listing out the mission objectives and everything, so classic.
Would love a classic FPS game for this film. Maybe even, if you complete the last mission quickly, there's an alternate ending where Bond escapes! lol
I actually did once see a slightly smelly guy asking for money on the Tube wearing a Skyfall-style Barbour jacket. It's £400!
Exactly. For the same reason that Vesper stayed dead (because it was a significant death, meant to affect Bond), Bond is dead, too. To resurrect Craig-Bond would cheapen all that preceded it.
Post NTTD, some of the fans are in an earlier stage of grief (denial) than others (acceptance). Craig-Bond is dead.
But James Bond will return.
I wonder if you really have?
For some reason I looked it up one day and discovered this 1930s Depression related information
A Hobo is a homeless person moving from town to town in search of work (the actor Robert Mitchum was once a hobo, before he made it in the movies)
A Tramp is a homeless person who moves from town to town but does not seek employment
A Bum is a homeless person who stays in one place and does not seek employment
Not many people know that!
And hey, if any Bond is to die I'm glad it was the only one who managed to achieve a legacy. I like to imagine Mathilde growing up to be a top-selling author who regales the world through her books all about her father's exploits as an agent and even secures a lucrative movie deal. How's that? Too meta? ;)
Making Bond a woman, that’s one thing, but Ian Fleming? :))
Sounds like they were the real deal then
Absolutely! The thought popped into my mind as well. Instantly recalled the days of N64 TWINE, Nightfire, and with the nanobots how could we not have Everything or Nothing on our minds?
As soon as the nanobots were revealed, I asked my friend next to me, "Do they eat everything but platinum?"
If you know what I mean?
I don't think Moneypenny was the source of that info; it was the Spectre meeting, wasn't it?
But your point is valid. I too wondered what took Safin so long to emerge and go after Spectre and try to woo Madeleine.
Still doesn't answer my question about Primo :-?
I assume that Safin may have had some kind of...foresight...into how Primo could have been useful later down the line and made sure his DNA was not in the mist at the party. Then he later sent Ash to recruit him, as seen via the bionic eye. Or perhaps Primo was more a hired gun and not necessarily a Spectre agent. Basically a third-party freelancer.
Me neither. There was nothing really inspiring about anything Bond wears in this one. I really liked Craig's wardrobe in CR and QoS. SF had its moments too (the Barbour jacket, Adidas trainers, etc.) but wasn't overly impressed with SP too much.
I thought the action sequences at the end were some of the best I've ever seen in a Bond movie. It felt like you were right in the centre of the action, a bit like a videogame.
Sorry Ana de Armas, you did fine but the whole scene was generic and forced. I would much more prefer if she appeared in place of Lashana Lynch as the new 007, if producers wanted to overhaul the dark(er) script with Mooresque 70s light humor.
This beautifully sums up my thoughts.
