But this was probably the worst of them all IMO.

Casino Royale is probably my favorite Bond flick, but I thought all of the sequels have been pretty forgettable. I've been trying to talk myself into seeing the new one for the last few days, but I haven't managed to do it yet.

I've seen all of the Bond movies, but I don't consider myself a fan. I just really really really hate the lame comedy that gets shoehorned into the stories. Likeable and charismatic lead actors, gorgeous girls, and fantastic stunts...but I just can't get past the constant bad jokes. I suppose that's why I like Casino Royale the best, because they dialed back the attempts at humor.

Just watched it. It was...ok. I guess. The pre opening credits scenes are the best.

Craig just isn't a very good Bond. He just isn't suave, and I don't think his acting was very good here. The emotional stuff stuff didn't work for me either.

SPOILERS


- So Q is gay?

- I'm not sure what the bad guy's plan was? Who was he targeting? Everyone?

- Some good action scenes early on, but the last section felt like a video game.

- The ending was not good. Bond pretty much committed suicide because he couldn't hook up with his ex. I'm not buying that. Maybe there are other interpretations, but he seemed to give up after he gets poisoned. And why would the bad guy let on that he had just infected him? Seems like that would be a nice surprise for the guy who just killed him.

- The dialogue was weak throughout the entire movie. The ending scene should have had some A+ material, but it was surprisingly weak. They should have ended things with the explosion.

Any way you look at it it's pretty odd for James Bond. Maybe if I rewatched the previous movies it might work better for me.



A few more minor thoughts:

Bond is explosion proof in this movie! It doesn't really bother me, but he shook off three big blasts pretty quickly. Kinda funny.

I wish Cyclops had been given more of a personality or some cooler stuff to do.

I've never been that impressed with the modern Blofeld. Telly Savalas is probably my favorite Blofeld.

Watch Spectre before you watch No Time to Die

I assumed that the character Paloma (played by the chick from BladeRunner) was from a previous Bond movie.




She's new though. I'm surprised that they would create a new character instead of giving her scenes to Nomi.



p.s. Daniel Craig is slowly morphing into Ellen DeGeneres:

I think there are more great bond songs than great bond movies. Especially since the 80s.

Here are a couple of unused theme songs:

Never heard the alice cooper song...nice. The lulu song is one of my least favorite...stupid lyrics, dated. I like the song they used for thunderball :-)

The Spy Who Loved Me is the best of the Roger Moore Bond movies, right? Great opening scene, good main villain, hot Bond Girl, Jaws, and not as much silly comedy.

Personally, I think it’s his first one, Live and Let Die. Everything after seemed to just get cornier and cornier.
