No Time to Die

I know swissotter has seen it. Anyone else?

Did you like or dislike it? was it a worthy sendoff for Daniel Craig?

Re: No Time to Die

I'm not fond of the Craig version of Bond and won't be going to see it. He's too touchy-feelie teary eyed for my taste. Everyone I spoke to who saw it thought it was a great film and a terrific send off. They also liked that he was in touch with his feelings

Re: No Time to Die

I saw it and I liked some parts very much while some parts were a bit confusing. The Matera chase scene was quintessential Bond. I'm not a huge fan of Lea but Daniel Craig plays Bond with his touch of toughness and distance but this time with more vulnerability.

It's a swan song for Craig and will definitely be his last one. Don't read the spoilers if you're going to watch the film.

Re: No Time to Die

I think it broke the bond mythos in a good way (in a smaller scale than the last jedi, for example) and it will be interesting to see if idris Elba makes it to the role or not.

Skyfall is still my favourite with Casino Royale coming in as second.

The Woody Allan version of Casino Royale is mine. All the others are just unbelievable particularly their endings.

My wife loves them, but I find them tedious.

Re: No Time to Die

Bond is meant to be a superhero.

You cannot shoot him - you can fire a million bullets, and he never gets hit.
(s)He can jump off skyscrapers and not get scratched.
(s)He can emerge from a scuba dive in a tux that has no water and no creases.

Bond being vulnerable is wrong. He's not bond. He's some impostor.

Re: No Time to Die

Yes, I enjoyed it. I was glad it was not spoiled beforehand with any previews.



Impressed with Daniel' Craig's old-man-body and face-to-camera close up monologues...


i can see now why they postponed the launch...


Made somewhat absurd by sitting in a movie theatre with no distancing and no masks....

Re: No Time to Die

We will go and see if of course...

May I ask, is it just me, or does anyone else find films these days being far far too loud?

Re: No Time to Die

I regularly get migraines from the loud sound, so I bring earplugs. And I also have light sensitivities, so when the room is small, ouch!

Not too loud to me, too badly mixed, I often put subtitles on at home

Re: No Time to Die

A.O. Scott of the New York Times has a review that, quip aside, I would refer to as "assassination". It's paywalled, but the point is that the movie is lost between Craig brooding, Bond banalities and some superhero tropes, and that it's darn too long at 2h43 of which one hour could be cut. (What were they doing during the 18+ months they could have finetuned this?) The takeaway:


Quote:
Oh well. There are still hours of Lyutsiferian nonsense to endure. The final showdown, an interminable search-and-rescue mission on an island compound off the coast of Japan, supposes that what the fans want more than anything else is weepy, wheezy cliché-mongering. The villain explains himself at great length, and proposes that he and the hero are mirror images of each other. We’ve never heard that one before. “We are two heroes in a tragedy of our own making,” he whines. But it isn’t a tragedy. It’s a mistake.
