Recommended Posts

I wasn't expecting that music lol.

 

Craig's movies have the pattern of good bad good bad, I'm hoping this one is a good one after the disappointment of Spectre.

Many of the Bond films tend to fluctuate b/w relatively serious ones and all out entertainers to cater to a variety of tastes. As a Bond fan, I have read books and comics, listened to audiobooks, and of course watched the films. They are all good. No Time to Die is expected to pick the story  from Spectre

The problem i have with daniel craig james bond movies is that the plots have become so intricate and convoluted spanning multiple movies.

 

I remember going to specture and being on wikipedia half to the time as the film linked back to skyfall and quantum of solace etc.

 

There have been some epic scenes such as the day of the dead scene in mexico city. That is the saving grace.

 

But i just miss the time of relatively stand aline clear plot of pierce brosnan era

 

I call this intricate multi movie plot linking the nolan effect

I guess, Bond films have had to reinvent for the 21st century audiences .... Besides the opening sequence, I liked the plots in Austria (Dr. Swann's introduction) and Morocco (had some beautifully shot sequences that looked good on screen) as well (the twin locations were earlier used in TLD) 

 

As for the linking of plots, that happens in original Bond novels too for e.g. OHMSS, YOLT, and TMWTGG. TB, OHMSS, and YOLT are considered as SPECTRE trilogy. Bond battled SMERSH, the Russian Secret Service, operatives in many of his books. And in earlier films too for e.g. Dr No is a SPECTRE operative in the first film, who is to be avenged in FRWL (In the book, the events in DRNO follow after FRWL, where SMERSH is used instead of SPECTRE :lol: ) .... Sean Connery's YOLT and DAF are linked, relatively speaking, as well as after Blofeld escapes at the end of YOLT, Bond pursues him at the beginning of DAF

Caribbean as a location works well in both Bond films and Fleming's books. No Time to Die is shot in Caribbean too so I hope the parts are interesting :drool:

 

Bond in Caribbean:

Films: DRNO, TB, LALD, OP (pre title sequence), GE, DAD, CR, and now NTTD 

Books (full length novels): LALD, DRNO, TB, and TMWTGG 

 

 

PS Trailer of the 1st film:

SP $300M! It is more like a gift to the franchise fans esp. for making SF the most successful (adjusted and unadjusted) Bond film.

The Daniel Craig Collection (4 films) is coming out in 4K HDR on Oct 22nd. Is anyone planning to get it? 

 

I have all Bond films on BR (Blue Ray) except CR (Casino Royale) and QOS (Quantum of Solace), which are on DVD, so am on the fence on this one as I can look to upgrade CR and QOS or just get the digital ones when the titles come out in 4K HDR (currently available in 4K without HDR on iTunes). Also my favorite ones tend to fall in the first 16 films (1962 to 1989) :hmmm:
