Spectre was the most disappointed I’d ever been in a movie, at the time.
I’ve watched Spectre a few times since theaters and i still cannot get through a re-watch of Quantum
Spectre suffers because it has an absolutely mesmerizing opening sequence and it never reaches those heights again throughout the rest of the movie. I still think it's a good Bond movie.
Casino Royale > Skyfall > Quantum = Spectre
Spectre is so much better than Quantum lol Quantum has like one good scene total
They're both bad. Who cares about degrees of bad.
I definitely prefer Spectre to Quantum, but I haven't seen Quantum since the first time I saw it. I want to rewatch it sometime soon and see how I feel about it. Spectre has really great music aside of the opening/theme song, which helps.
Casino Royale and Skyfall have always been about the same for me. Two of my favorite 007 flicks.
skyfall > CR > QoS > spectre
I really struggle with whether I like Casino Royale or Skyfall more. I think Mads puts CR barely over the top but it's a really close call.
CR is almost perfect. QoS is better when watching it after watching CR recently.
Casino Royale might be my favorite Bond movie. I don't mind QoS. I loved Skyfall when I first saw it, but I've never had a desire to rewatch it. Spectre was forgettable.
The choppiness of the edit in that opening car chase in Quantum is wildly distracting.
I wish the writer strike didn't happen when it did, QoS coulda been so much better.
Weren’t they writing a lot of that movie on the fly?
yes and no. the script was done overall I believe, but any changes or fine tuning that were made along the way because of whatever issues can happen, could not be handled by any writers.
it would be great to know what could have been. but I'm still entertained by it. love some of the sequences, especially the opera scene is top tier Bond moments for me.
EXCLUSIVE: Titan Books Announces NO TIME TO DIE: THE MAKING OF THE FILM super excited about this
Bond films and November go together like PB&J. Love watching these, currently on Goldfinger.
Connery is the best James Bond.
my vacation day off work turned into two sick days which resulted in me throwing on Pluto TV's 007 channel and intermittently watching whatever Bond film was on. aside from being sick, it was perfect haha. movies I caught parts of/watched most of were For Your Eyes Only, Live and Let Die, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Goldeneye, Thunderball, and Die Another Day.
Definitely will be doing a rewatch again soon, perhaps with some of the James Bonding commentary episodes.
My current ranking of the 14 I’ve seen this month so far:
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
You Only Live Twice
Diamonds Are Forever
Live and Let Die
The Spy Who Loved Me
For Your Eyes Only
From Russia With Love
The Man With The Golden Gun
Never Say Never Again
Pretty solid ranking and somewhat similar to mine, except I'd swap Russia and Thunderball. I get so bored with the latter every time I try to watch it haha.
I've spent all of 2019 slowly working my way through the entire franchise (24 Eon movies = 2 movies/month). I just got to Casino Royale and forgot how much it absolutely rips.
From Russia With Love being so low hurts me haha
I think I'm watching this tonight
