I'm glad you did the review, because now I'll probably bother seeing it, whereas I wasn't going to bother, based on the 1-star review. Safe.

I can't handle that level of responsiblity - what if you hate it? You'll blame me

Severon said he was going to put his comments on here once he'd seen it but I'm not sure if he's seen it yet.

How familiar you are with Casino Royale does definitely seem to have a bearing on whether you find it confusing or not though. I can understand not wanting to spell-out everything for the audience but I think a skilled scriptwriter should be able to fill in the blanks without making it blatant - it's not as if the film was 3 hours long so they had to cut it all out.

Bit late, but better late than never (and I keep getting hassled by Foxy [:$] )


I really enjoyed QOS, and thought there were some great moments, but I could have done without seeing Judi Dench's bedtime routine.


I liked it when Bond was eavesdropping on the Quantum group in the theatre, then just interrupts their conversation. And when M asks him about someone he had been looking for, and Bond says "He was a dead-end". In any other Bond film it would have just been a throwaway line, but M get's it and says "Bond killed him." I agree that it was a bit too convenient sometimes, and people are in just the right place at the right time. But there are some great action sequences (especially the ending.)


Looking forward to the DVD release on 23 March, but it does mean I'll have to re-purchase the Ultimate Edition boxset (just kidding, but I'd love to meet someone who does that.)


On an unrelated note, I was in Asda yesterday and they were selling Indy 4 (2 discs) for £5. I didn't get it though; I still think of it as a trilogy [:)] , and if I'm in the mood for watching an Indy film I can't imagine choosing to watch that one.

i'm finding it hard to get to the cinema these days, so had to watch qos on "iffy" download. i really liked it, but the quality was quite blurry, so when there was an action scene (the fight on the scaffolding for example) it was really hard to actually see what was going on.
it'll be nice to see it properly once it's out on dvd

Bates is right - serves you right. Especially when these days you only have to wait about three months for the doovde. You'll burn in hell for that and it'll serve you right.


Now that we've all seen it I can say aloud:


I was completely unprepared for and shocked by M getting shot (although they seemed to gloss over how bad it was/wasn't) - that first half hour was great.

did you see the fat bloke on graham norton dancing to the bond theme?

this youtubery shows the clip and then the full version of the dance


i must confess, i was disappointed to learn that he appears to be an aspiring professional rather than just a regular fat bloke who's perfected this dance as a party piece.

I think they're both great songs - but clearly the vid for Joe's is better.

Not sure if they were responsible for both clips themselves - think the Adam vid may just be by a fan.

i don't know why but last night i found myself trying to make up a title for a bond film. i'm sure plenty of people have done this before - fancy giving it a go?


obviously this would work better if i had succeeded in coming up with one but every time i thought i'd got one i realised that it was probably actually already a title, but of a man from uncle film or bond spoof/parody - or perhaps i've just been exposed to too much of this type of thing and can't distinguish already existing book and film titles from ones in my head.


did someone build some kind of bond movie title generator thing that's already sitting out there on the internet? if not i think you should attempt to make one papa - using words like death, kill, diamonds, spy, gold, day, night, eye(s), gun, die.


the best i could come up with so far is the spy with the platinum face - hardly throwing down the gauntlet; i'm sure you can do better.
