So I guess it's just a question of taste - I prefer the Bond movies which at least remotely make sense.
This one doesn't.
Craig is a decent enough actor - unlike every other Bond except, again, Timothy Dalton, he made it appear believable that Bond had actual feelings back in Casino Royale. And unlike Cannoli, I rather liked Eva Green in that role.

I haven't liked any of Craig's Bond girls, except maybe Moneypenny. I even like Olga Kurilenko in just about anything, but not QoS. And don't get me started on Gemma Arterton.
It's true the plot isn't always too great or coherent, but still Casino Royale or Skyfall were several degrees of magnitude better than many other action movies I could name. Though in fairness, the last Mission Impossible made a surprisingly convincing case for the "screw making sense, nobody cares about coherence" school of film-making.
Nothing in those movies made sense. I thought the politics of Phantom Menace were better than Skyfall or Spectre.

Spectre: How far up their own asses have the Bond people lodged their heads? - 11/11/2015 04:27:39 AM 1337 Views
You're not wrong. Well, once maybe. - 11/11/2015 11:08:13 AM 674 Views
Very true. Noticed the similarities to Rogue Nation as I was watching - 11/11/2015 03:30:31 PM 551 Views

The biggest problem with the Craig films is the lack of humour. - 17/11/2015 07:40:11 PM 634 Views

THe early Cean Connery ones were not that cheesy - 20/11/2015 07:12:45 PM 612 Views
I don't know, I'm inclined to say they're the best ones since Timothy Dalton. - 21/11/2015 02:49:04 AM 526 Views
And Spectre ran with that - 21/11/2015 11:02:24 PM 577 Views
He's one of the worst Bonds, maybe the worst - 28/11/2015 10:36:01 AM 526 Views
One of the worst yes, but the worst of all was Lazenby. *NM* - 09/12/2015 06:35:26 PM 324 Views
i generally agree with your analysis - 09/12/2015 06:46:51 AM 544 Views
Somewhat to my surprise, I find myself agreeing with you on most points. - 09/12/2015 10:55:46 PM 472 Views
Including the subliminal "Vote Trump" message? *NM* - 09/12/2015 11:24:16 PM 361 Views
Er, what? I must've missed that part. - 10/12/2015 11:37:17 PM 479 Views
