Yeah, I agree. This scene worked for me. Especially since at the end of Spectre, Bond made the decision after everything not to kill Blofeld because he wanted to walk away from that life and be with Madeleine. After finding out what Blofeld did, it makes sense that he would finally snap. Craig and Waltz were both brilliant in this scene.
Isn't this the same guy who had the chance to kill Blofeld in the last movie and instead threw his weapon away and walked off?
Hey, no problem. Thanks for reading my post and intelligently responding to all of my points.
At the end of Spectre, Bond assumed Blofeld would be in jail and would no longer be a threat, so no need to kill him. He was choosing to leave MI6 and the life of an assassin to live a "normal" life with Madeline. However, in NTTD, he finds out Blofeld is still able to mess with him even when he's in jail, causing Bond to give up on a life outside the service with the woman he loves. I can understand why he'd lose it a bit.
Wasn't Dalton "proper" trailer too?
But level up with Daniel Craig is noticeable to all, especially as the tone and script changed. Pierce wanted heavy weight material. But Daniel is the best, most realistic actor we have had in the role (along with Dalton and Connery), in my opinion.
As for "properly trained" ... I recall Sean saying "Of course I have a method. I am a properly trained actor." I think said with a barely controlled snarl, not his charming smile (I forget where I read that).
So in Bond films, we have been given:
Properly Trained Actors:
Leaving only one for the category of
Not Properly Trained Actor:
If it does get nominations, and picks up a few as well, a re-release may be in the cards too. Yes I am whoring NTTD to get an extra $100m damnit....
That said, I say we have zero chance of it happening. Probably the title song and a few technical nods at best.
There was a couple sitting in the row in front of me and the guy got up during the gunbarrel dots (which REALLY pissed me off as it blocked my sacred gunbarrel view).
Another couple outright left altogether during the Bond/Safin monologue scene.
During the end credits I was the only audience member who stayed for the JAMES BOND WILL RETURN credit. It looked like there was a guy waiting for it, but got impatient and left. The theatre staff cleaning crew seemed to be making an effort to distract us and get us out as the credits rolled. FFS! I 'm enjoying Louis Armstrong! Show some respect!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One woman wept as her partner left with her shaking his head.
I think time will tell how popular this film becomes in Bond cinematic history.
He's not on any Oscar predictions list.
There are at least 25 other performances, that they will pick five from to nominate.
NTTD is no Oscar stuff.
I'm definitely not the youth market, and I'm more a Fleming fan the the cinematic version, and I hated the film. I cannot see this love for the Fleming fans in NTTD. All I see is disrespect for the original material. Had NTTD ended like YOLT, then I would have loved the movie probably more than you did.
Wasn't Dalton "proper" trailer too?[/quote]
He was @jobo, but he also didn't resonate with American audiences at the time. Some believed he was too much of thespian, while others thought he simply wasn't as much fun as Moore or Connery.[/quote]
Regarding Dalton, he just didn't click with American audiences.....i think they thought him too dour, in an era where Americans flocked to buddy-buddy films like Lethal Weapon.
