I haven't watched a Bond movie since that dud after Goldeneye.

Loved those Roger Moore Bond movies when I was a kid.... especially Moonraker.

Maybe I should watch the first Bond movie with this guy before checking it out.

Re: No Time To Die

I'm seeing it on Saturday so will keep out of this thread until after that.

Best ever is a big call though..

Casino Royale (Daniel Craig's first film) is great, well worth a watch James. Skyfall is good as well. Quantum of Solace and Spectre not so much.

Without spoilers, the Daniel Craig films are basically their own series. You would need to see the films from Casino Royal on to Spectre to follow the plot.

Maybe I was over excited after just seeing it, but it's much, much, better film than Spectre in every area.

That's all I'm going to say atm.

The whispers have all been positive for this film. Similar to CR and Skyfall when they were getting released, so my hopes were up anyway.

I loved it. It's the perfect subversion of the ending of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and the use of "we have all the time in the world". With Craig finished, they're basically starting again anyway in the next film. Besides it's the 25th film and they've never done this before. This was the only chance to do it really. Also I'm really fond of on "Her Majesty's Secret Service".

I was thinking the virus thing, was going to be their way of continuing the story... but writing out Swan and his daughter without killing them. It might seem cliched, but for the series them actually killing him off was a surprise.

The only downside though is Sami Malek's villain didn't really have much of a great backstory. What was his motivation? He was the only classic bond era villain in the Craig films. Even more than Blofield. Spectre also came across as a bit of a parody of themselves too.

I still really liked this film though. I'm almost tempted to go see it again, but probably won't.

I do think Craig though has established himself as the best Bond.

Saw it at the weekend.

Wow they did it. Felt kind of surreal watching the ending as it will go down as a major moment in film history for better or worse.

I wasn't hugely surprised by his death as it had been hinted at throughout the film but even then for them to actually go through with it was still a surprise. Kudos to them for having the balls. The virus thing infecting him and keeping him from his family angle gave them a nice mechanism to have him retire again, alone forever the bachelor but still alive.

Overall after one watch I'd say better than QoS and Spectre but below CR and Skyfall but that may change. The weak link as others have said was Malik or more specifically his villain. Safin just seemed kind of aimless to me. They could have done the entire story basically the same and just either used Blofeld again or a Blofeld protege and it would have made more overall sense.

What's next for Bond? With all the political pressure that now seems to hang on a Bond casting it may be the last traditional Bond we see for a while but who knows.

The dream for me is a solid Bond casting and hand the directing/writing reigns to Chris Nolan for 2-3 films and let him tell a Bond story arc ala Dark Knight.
