Hmmm...eh....quite a snooze fest. Quality wise is no better than Spectre and no way it is comparable to Skyfall. Uninspired villain and "seen that, done that" plotlines made it just very average. The new 007 is a dud! The only enjoyment I had is the short cameo of Ana De Armas which has quirky sensibility of Phoebe Waller Bridge fingerprints all over it. No wonder it didn't do well with the box office.

I beg to differ.
This version of bond showed his vulnerability make him more human than ever.
It's a perfect ending for me.

This decision to kill one of the most memorable and universally well known character will come back to bite them.

Rami Malek as a villain just doesnt cut it for me..

he doesnt look threatening.. doesnt act so..

overall.. is an okay movie... Skyfall is the best for me.

No Time to Die (2021)

What a rollercoster.

The pandemic.

The multiple postponement of the release date of this movie.

The sale of MGM to Amazon.

The announcement that this is Daniel Craig last outing as James Bond.

As I said, a rollercoster...

The movie intrigues you the first few minutes.

It then gives you a breather...

It segue ways to to a cemetery (in Italy) grabs you and not let go for quite awhile

Almost 30 minutes in, the BOND theme plays!

shocking.gif

How can one not LIKE this movie.

Okay okay Ana de Armas's Paloma could have more screen time.

I never got into the winter and spring relationship between James Bond and Léa Seydoux's Madeleine.

Over all, I did like this movie.

The arch of Daniel Craig's James Bond is the most congruent by far and I for one is very appreciative of that.

Is this a perfect movie?

No.

It is very entertaining.

Is that not what we for to the cinemas for.

To be entertained.

As always, this is JUST My Two Sen.

With the success of QOS, one can only thirst for more Craig's 007.
Great news for everyone, he's not only contracted for Bond 23, and also confirmed for Bond 24 thumbup.gif
(with possible interest in 25).

Just watched it in IMAX last night.

I think the amount of action is not as much I expected but when it did boy it really hit hard and fast.

Otherwise say if compared to Tenet (seriously worth to watch it in Imax) it is not worth watching in IMAX, I can say regular cinema will be more than enough.

I listened to the soundtrack (properly uploaded by Hans Zimmer) prior watch the movie & it does fit the scene perfectly

Also i noted something (please dont click if you have yet to watch it)
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


And no, there is no post credit scene, funny to see many sit back expecting it. However if you are into soundtrack definitely much nicer sounding then say in headphone

after repeated waiting, finally able to watch DC final outing as JB.

prior to watching this, was on a movie marathon for all DC's JB from CR right up until Spectre.

the first act, scenery, cinematography and action is gripping! i thought if this is what it's going the first act, can't wait to have the 2nd and 3rd act. but boy oh boy, looks like the 1st act was the best.

imho, the whole DC's JB is like a mini saga on it's own. CR introduced us DC's JB origin. how he got his 1st kill. NTTD provided us an infinite closure to DC's JB. and it's proper closure and not just provide some lazy loose ends.

but the problem to me is, JB is JB. people associate JB as an icon. they don't necessary need an intro nor a conclusion to his story. they just want to go on one of his many missions.

what DC's JB did was they concentrated on grounding JB to a more believable spy. credit to that. but they also told their own version of JB from start until finish with DC. with NTTD, it's no longer a continuation of JB. in a way, it's like CR reintroduced JB when DC took the role.

so for JB26, are we suppose to get a new intro all over again? how many times do we need a re-intro? how many of us are sick of watching uncle ben dies with each new spiderman actor. lol.

i prefer MI series where we just jump straight in into another mission rather than concentrating on tying up several movies into a mini universe of its own.

as i mentioned, this NTTD serves as an infinite and proper closure for DC's JB. it ties up everything from CR.

i recommend rewatching all DC's JB from CR onwards until Spectre before watching this. it gives a proper send off to this character.

overall it's not a bad movie but it doesn't work for me.
wasted sami's talent. his motives doesn't work for me.
