    I don't get it. A lot of NTTD is pure out fun. The ending you can argue isn't ... But it's not like the fun isn't there. It's just hyperbole because of one moment in the ending.

    Can I say... Toys out the pram?

    Best gag in NTTD: 'I've just shown someone your watch.'
    Excellent - that's the kind of deadpan humour that suited CraigBond.
    I do think they spoiled it a bit with the 'blew his mind' follow-up, though - has anyone actually said that since 1971?

    Absolutely yes heck yeah it's been said. I've been around since before 1971. My co-workers, family, and acquaintances use it today. I see it in modern pop culture. You gotta be kidding with a complaint like that.

    Every audience I was with had a positive reaction to it. So maybe you are kidding. Can't think why though.

    I agree. Much of Craig's tenure was filled with humor; it was just a little more subtle. I laughed heartily in CR when everyone at the poker table orders Bond's drink, much to LeChiffre's frustration. It still cracks me up. He whines, "Is that it? Is everyone ready to play poker now?" To which, Leiter replies something like, "Someone's in a hurry." This is good stuff.

    Also of note: Bond's reaction to Q sitting next to him at the museum in SF. Remember, Bond has no idea at first that this is Q. He thinks it's some young "puff" sitting a little too close to him on a bench. Bond's reaction is effin' priceless. Craig gets the facial expression perfect.

    I haven't heard anyone say it since I was a little kid, tbh. 'Blew my mind' was the kind of old hippy speak that was banished from England along with the likes of 'far out' as soon as punk swept flares and afghan coats aside. Mind you, it could easily have been revived without me noticing - I'm in parochial Yorkshire and I haven't been 'down with the kids' for decades.😉

    I don't associate enough with kids to be able to comment further.

    "Blew his mind" doesn't strike me as old fashioned at all. My guess would've been that people still say it commonly.

    I was disappointed that I was the only person who laughed at the “blew his mind” line. I thought it was great, especially the look on Craig’s face.

    It got laughs each time I watched it in theatres. Thought it was a great line.

    Oh man I flipping loved that. It was the most old-school Bond pun Craig ever got to give and I adored it. Despite what some have said I never want the cheesy Bond puns to go away. They’ve been a part of the films since the very beginning (“I think they were on their way to a funeral”).

    I know that some fans say they are indifferent to the cheesy one liners but I love them. Even most of the dumbest manage to make me laugh.

    Heavy, maaan - that's so far out it's like...cosmic. Bond is the commander and I'm just the space cadet.
    Hey, Nixon, don't harsh my vibe, man...peace!
  • NTTD is all-time classic Bond for me. Happy Christmas EON. You deserve it for a job well done.

    I do think Hollywood has forgotten or is less inclined to provide pure fun these days. I get sick and tired of “emotion” used to disguise creative bankruptcy.

    The new ghostbusters looks more of the same. Nothing like the original which was a sleazy, cynical, utterly hilarious riot. Just nostalgia and whimsy so people can tweet about how much they cried, like that’s the high water mark of entertainment.

    I pine for the 80s.

    His reaction to "I'm your new Quartermaster" - priceless

    Mark my words, Craig will be fired from the role. They will get someone new, just wait and see.

    Craig will explode with anger at being let go.

    It would be the greatest injustice that ever happened to a Bond actor. EON will never live it down!

    That'll teach him for not being able to drive a stick.

    He's done his bit and we thank him for his service. AGAIN! Goodbye.

    [And more seriously may never be able to thank him enough, really.]

    The Numbers has NTTD at $771m worldwide as of this weekend

    https://www.the-numbers.com/movie/No-Time-to-Die-(2021)#tab=box-office

    Expect Spidey to suck out all the air from the Box Office next weekend....but it might still add $1m to its US total by the time the blu-ray is released.

    It’s curious since The Numbers three days ago had NTTD at $761M while Mojo provided a bigger gross, $765M, and now they both list the estimated total of $771 so there’s definitely something off.
    Let’s see what happens with the actual numbers tomorrow.
