He's one of the worst Bonds, maybe the worst Sidious Send a noteboard - 28/11/2015 10:36:01 AM

Because with all that unrelenting grim action there's nothing to add a touch of levity.

I liked Casino Royale the first time I watched it, but it didn't stand up under second viewing. The others won't get a second viewing because they just weren't good enough. I love rewatching the old Bond films.

And you're right. There are so many plot holes and so many things that just don't make sense.

Waste of a good franchise.

I have seen every Bond up until Quantum of Solace and I have yet to rewatch a single Craig movie. I've seen some of the older ones at least ten times. Maybe the previous films did glamorise a violent profession, but I love how all the previous Bonds could throw in a dreadfully weak joke as they were facing imminent execution. Craig's movies have most of the old elements but the fact that they don't allow you to smile for two hours and he's almost as dislikeable as the villains, makes for very serious and probably regrettable viewing.

They clearly shifted the posts back to making Bond more serious, but I'm not ashamed to admit I miss the exploding milk bottles and dart-shooting wrist watches from years ago.

You're not wrong. Well, once maybe. - 11/11/2015 11:08:13 AM 708 Views
Very true. Noticed the similarities to Rogue Nation as I was watching - 11/11/2015 03:30:31 PM 581 Views

The biggest problem with the Craig films is the lack of humour. - 17/11/2015 07:40:11 PM 668 Views

THe early Cean Connery ones were not that cheesy - 20/11/2015 07:12:45 PM 641 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 561 Views
And Spectre ran with that - 21/11/2015 11:02:24 PM 606 Views

One of the worst yes, but the worst of all was Lazenby. *NM* - 09/12/2015 06:35:26 PM 347 Views
i generally agree with your analysis - 09/12/2015 06:46:51 AM 576 Views
Somewhat to my surprise, I find myself agreeing with you on most points. - 09/12/2015 10:55:46 PM 503 Views
Including the subliminal "Vote Trump" message? *NM* - 09/12/2015 11:24:16 PM 383 Views
Er, what? I must've missed that part. - 10/12/2015 11:37:17 PM 517 Views
