Interesting that you enjoyed Spectre as much as you did. I do too, but itís generally received negatively in the fan base due to the weaker script. Are you gonna watch the rest of the series? Itís a hell of a trip!

It took me forever to watch even the most current ones, someday down the line I consider watching them but not anytime soon.

And how can a script with "fist fight on board of a spinning helicopter hovering above a crowded square" be weak?  :lol

(More seriously, the story is what it is, I didn't find it particularly bad or weak, it was in line with the other movies)
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

It was what they did with Blofeld and Spectre in general that was weak. They kind of did it half assed. Wasnít developed well enough.

Danny boyle has quit from directing the new bond film

Yeah that shits crazy. If they keep Hodgeís script, hopefully they can find a replacement quick enough that they donít have to miss a beat and still make the deadline.

Well, hopefully they can find someone soon who can make the film the best it can be... Feels like forever between Bond films, so a delay isn't going to help.

Skyfall is not my favorite bond film, but I think it might have my favorite moment in the entire series.

When silva has him in the chair and he's trying to rattle him by flirting with him and without missing a beat, craig is like "who said its my first time". What a come back, :clap:  bravo sir

It looks like Cary Fukunaga is directing the next bond film.

Really weird choice. He made Beast of No Nation, and directed/ produced some episodes of True Detective.

I'm pretty interested to see the direction he's taking Bond!

Iím not familiar with any of his work, but people on the James Bond forum that I stalk say that he is definitely the right choice without a doubt. So fingers crossed!

I love that line. Made me smile in the theater. So good.

Great to hear they have someone for the film. Never heard of him, will have to look up his work and put my faith in him.

Unpopular opinion:

I donít understand the love Skyfall gets. It doesnít feel like a Bond movie at all. Itís too personal, I never really wanted to visit Bondís childhood home, or watch some weird M revenge movie.

There are just lots of cringe-moments too. Bond sneaking into the shower of someone he learned in the previous scene had been sex trafficked. Yes, Bond has always been a dog but coome on. I also couldnít stop giggling when someone in the movie said a line like ďJames hid in that hole and when he came out he wasnít a boy anymoreĒ.
 
Also the CGI Komodo dragons. Also the Javier Bardem CGI face. Shudder.

I could forgive all this and call it an ďokayĒ Bond, but itís nowhere near the top for me.

I always feel that Spectre was unfairly bashed. Sure It wasn't as great as Skyfall but it wasn't bad or anything. It's like Bond movies arent allowed to be just good anymore. It seems they're either seen as great or crap. Spectre was a lot of fun and was more like an older Bond movie.......which some people said is a bad thing for some reason.

I think itís as beloved as it is because of the acting, cinematography, and how overall stylish it is. And yes, it has a simple story but it was executed really well.
