“Casino Royale”: The mystery behind Eva Green's purple ...

I have finally watched all twenty-four James Bond movies. Here’s what I have to say about them...

Hello! Here are my Bond film ratings. They are grouped together by actor and not year of release (i.e. see Sean Connery). I gave a score out five and a little review of the film.
Some of them are short, some of them are long. Some of them were done long after watching the movie so there wasn’t a lot to say about them.
Enjoy!
Official Sean Connery - 6
Dr. No (1962) Liked 4/5 Nice start to the series. Although it’s not the first book it makes sense for everyone.
From Russia With Love (1963) Liked 4/5 Good sequel. Continues the SPECTRE plot from the first film.
Goldfinger (1964) Liked 4/5 Classic. Found the end to be a little cheesy though.
Thunderball (1965) Liked 4/5 Found it very intriguing, although I thought the beginning was a little confusing at first.
You Only Live Twice (1967) Liked 4/5 This might be my favorite from the official Connery era. I just love seeing his Bond go up against Blofeld.
Diamonds Are Forever (1971) Disliked 2/5 I’m not really sure what exactly I didn’t like about this movie. Maybe it was because it felt like there was nothing happening in this imo. Bond goes to Vegas... now what?
George Lazenby - 1
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) Loved 5/5 Very close adaptation. George Lazenby is one of my top 3 Bonds
Roger Moore - 7
Live And Let Die (1973) Loved 5/5 First Moore film and great start to era.
The Man With The Golden Gun (1975) Meh 3/5 Found it be just like the 70s: cheesy. I did like the ending though.
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) Liked 4/5 What a dynamic duo James and Anya make. Plus Jaws, who’s probably my favorite henchman. I do hope he makes a return...
Moonraker (1979) 3.5/5 Okay I liked this movie for the most part but the end just really bothered me and I don’t know why... I did like hearing Richard Kiel speak though.
For Your Eyes Only (1981) 3.5/5 Okay I thought this one was just ok. Nothing special. Found Bibi annoying as hell, which I get is the point but she was just too much to take.
Octopussy (1983) 3/5 Meh There were too many characters too keep track of, too many things going on at once.
A View To A Kill (1985) 2/5 Disliked I found this one to be boring. There wasn’t much going on in this movie, especially in the first forty-five minutes or so. Bond goes to a horse race and goes undercover to find out why Zorin is using microchips. Okay.
Timothy Dalton - 2
The Living Daylights (1987) Liked 4/5 Good start to a more serious Bond. Also Dalton looks just like how Bond is described in the books. Didn’t really like the cello chase scene though.
License To Kill (1989) Liked 4/5 I really like that this is the first rogue Bond film. I enjoyed the plot very much, how it centered on the revenge of his friend and his wife and not just on a girl.
Pierce Brosnan - 4
Golden Eye (1995) 5/5 Loved Pierce Brosnan’s first outing as Bond is one for the ages. I liked Sean Bean as the villain and the plot twist was great. Brosnan is Bond in looks and in charisma. Opening theme is now one of my favorites.
Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) 4/5 Liked For all I’ve heard about how terrible Pierce’s movies get after Goldeneye, I actually think TND wasn’t that bad. I liked it. I found the plot to be a little cliché but it was well-executed. Johnathan Pryce has always been one of my favorite actors to play a villain since I saw him as the High Sparrow in GoT. I laughed at some parts during this film and Michelle Yeoh was great as the Bond girl. I loved the end when she threw a ninja star into some guys neck.
The World Is Not Enough (1999) 3/5 Meh The movie started off great, leading me to wonder if perhaps this was going to take a darker tone, but I was wrong. It was a little campy in some spots but I didn’t mind. What bothered me was that Renard, in my opinion, seemed very under-used. I also knew Elektra was a baddie as soon as M mentioned that she told Robert King to not pay the ransom. You can’t do that and not expect someone to be angry at you.
Die Another Day (2002*) *40th Anniversary 2/5 Disliked I’ve heard a lot about this movie. I’ve heard that it is considered the worst James Bond entry in the franchise. I’ve heard it’s only okay. Well, here’s what I think of it: I thought it started out great! In fact I was actually enjoying it. I like how it started out with a darker tone, with Bond getting captured and tortured by the North Koreans and then being delivered to MI6. I liked the Cuba sequence even though it was a little bit weird with the guy still being alive despite having diamonds embedded in his face. I liked our first introduction to Jinx. Then it all went downhill from the fencing scene onwards. It did not feel like a James Bond film — it felt like a campy spy flick that comes out every few years. Yes, JB has been known for being notoriously campy during its earlier movies, especially during the Roger Moore run, but it wasn’t stupidly campy like this was: all the puns, the CGI tsunami, and the slow motion! Who directed this, Zack Snyder? It felt like the slow motion effect was used too much in this movie. I can forgive it maybe once or twice but this was just too much. I know it’s such a small thing but it still bothered me.
Daniel Craig - 5
Casino Royale (2006) 5/5 Loved Great entry to a fantastic Bond. Got rid of all the gadgets and cgi and took it right back to its core: a man on a mission. The soundtrack was simply stunning; a story told within a story. I’m simply blown away by everything. I can’t believe that this is from the same writers as DAD! Plus Eva Green... ❤️
Quantum of Solace (2008) 4/5 Liked You know for all the crap this movie gets I didn’t think it was that bad. Best watched right after Casino Royale. Works as a direct sequel, and is Bond’s quest for solace in a broken world. And again, David Arnold’s score was superb.
Skyfall (2012*) *50th Anniversary 5/5 Loved Great little references to the older films. The cinematography was just breathtaking. Wonderful casting. I especially loved Ralph Fiennes as Mallory and loved seeing Moneypenny introduced into Craig’s era of Bond. Although the score wasn’t as good as David Arnold’s, I still enjoyed it very much. The pre-title sequence was intense, and the title sequence itself was spectacular. Adele did a great job! Also that little ‘James Bond Will Return’ at the end was fun!
SPECTRE (2015) 4/5 Liked I’ll be completely honest: I did not like this movie when I first watched it. I found it to be boring and and stupid in some parts. However now that I’m done with my complete watch of the 007 series, I must say that I have judged this movie wrong. There are faults, yes, ones that I will talk about, but this movie was actually pretty good on my second rewatch. Let’s get the good out of the way first: the cinematography. Again, like Skyfall, this movie was visually stunning. The skyline shots of London and Tangier were just gorgeous. The score: I found the score to be much better this time around. Though I still prefer David Arnold over Thomas Newman, I must say that he stepped it up this time. It sounded glassy to me — which I know is a weird way of describing a score but it did to me. It sounded glassy in a good way. It sounded delicate and classy. Madeleine’s theme was my favorite! The direction: Sam Mendes does it again! Just a genius in his craft and I love what he’s done with James Bond! Now for the bad. James and Madeleine’s relationship: I know what writers were going for — A second Vesper, someone who makes Bond realize that there’s more to life than just killing. However it felt very rushed to me compared to Vesper and Bond’s relationship in Casino Royale. One minute she was telling him to get away and the next moment she’s kissing and having sex with him. I think it could’ve been better. The brother relationship between Blofeld and Bond: it was ripped straight out of Austin Powers and that was very disappointing. I expected more from the writers of Skyfall. Also the whole “author of your pain” and “cuckoo” made me roll my eyes. Monica Belluci: before this movie hit theaters it was said that Monica would be in this film as a Bond girl. I remember everyone was very excited, everyone said that she would be the best Bond girl ever. She was barely in the movie for twenty minutes, maybe fifteen tops, and she was only there to have sex with Bond and give him information. What wasted potential...
All in all, I enjoyed my watch of James Bond. I can’t wait for Bond 25 and my hope is that it’s good. I have faith in Cary. I’m also eagerly awaiting the new James Bond actor to be picked.
Now all I have to do is finish the books!

Foil-Palooza!

Link to the album
Literally over 100 foil samples, blister pods, etc. It would take WAY too much time, not to mention space on this thread, to list them all, but feel free to peruse and ask me questions. It’s mostly moisturizers and primers, with a good amount of foundations/BB creams.
I have no idea what to ask for these. 50 cents each? 5 for $1? Sell all in one bundle? Take some free with purchase? We’ll figure it out.
EDIT: Here's what's gone -- All skincare, plus burberry fresh glow, dipbrow samples, porefessional, becca primer, tarte foundations, dr Jart diaspore, josie maran vibrancy, bum bum cream

Bunches of Foils

Link to the album
Lots of foil samples, blister pods, etc. It would take WAY too much time, not to mention space on this thread, to list them all, but feel free to peruse and ask questions. It’s mostly moisturizers and primers, with a good amount of foundations/BB creams.
In the past I’ve sold these for 50 cents each, sold a bunch in one large lot, and given them FWP to those who asked for specific foils, or who wanted to try some of a particular type of product. Feel free to ask/offer!
Edit: all skincare foils taken

Quentin Tarantino’s Casino Royale

I’ve been internet surfing and I have come across one of the biggest missed opportunities in cinematic history: Quentin Tarantino’s Casino Royale. For those who didn’t know, Quentin Tarantino tried to get the rights to Fleming’s classic novel right after doing Pulp Fiction. He then went on a major ass-kissing press tour where he dropped little tidbits on his approach to a possible film hoping he would catch the ear of Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson after failing to secure the rights.
I know that we already got a damn good Martin Campbell-helmed Casino Royale that established the best Bond ever and revitalized a franchise that was facing hard times after Die Another Day so there’s no reason for all this... BUT let’s look at how Quentin Tarantino would’ve made this film:
I know some of these ideas may seem weird and there are some cons to Tarantino’s brand of film: overly coarse language, exaggerated and prolonged scenes of violence (look at Reservoir Dogs and then imagine Le Chiffre’s torture of Bond in a Tarantino world) and the dreaded use of the N word.
Those cons seem like they aren’t worth the trouble and obviously the producers thought so as well, hence them purchasing the rights. If Tarantino had succeeded in securing the rights for himself, we could’ve seen a 2006 edition of 1983’s Battle of The Bonds only now with Pierce Brosnan in Tarantino’s Casino Royale and Daniel Craig as Eon’s 007 but with a completely different story OR we could’ve had a collaboration btwn Tarantino and EON Productions on a present day Casino Royale that featured a somewhat older Pierce Brosnan. It’ll never happen of course and neither Tarantino or EON are suffering from it but I truly see this as one of those great missed opportunities in film right along with Spielberg’s Return of The Jedi.

IJW: Spectre (2015)

http://screenhooked.com/2015/11/22/spectre/
SPOILER WARNING
Alright, it’s been two weeks. I’ve had the same “spoiler-free” discussion with about 15 people now, and I’m ready to put out my thoughts after finally seeing it. I’m already sick of talking about this movie, so this thesis will be filled with SPOILERS.
I guess I should start at the beginning. The long take at the opening is probably the most impressive I’ve ever seen. It tops every shot in Birdman, Rope or Star Trek. The rest of the sequence, however, fell flat. It doesn’t appear to me that in Spectre, Daniel Craig doesn’t want to do Bond anymore (though he doesn’t, and I accept that), more than he’s very comfortable in the role of 007, but his stiff walking through crowds doesn’t convey a real sense of urgency no matter how many quick cuts, nervous camera shakes, or intense music Sam Mendes throws in.
Classic Bond films typically opened towards the end of a mission completely irrelevant to the plot that gets you in the mood to see Bond, and sets the tone for the rest of the film. Spectre fulfills almost all of that, especially the last part, because the tone they were going for was “long, drawn out, and a little goofy.” The chase through the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico City wasn’t interesting. I’m not talking about Bond’s little rogue mission, but the chase itself. I can leave the building blowing up randomly alone, and I thought the couch landing was a nice nod to the Roger Moore films (I would later find more and more), but how many times do we have to watch Bond take down a helicopter in these movies? I know there’s a finite amount of ideas one can do, but there’s no suspense in this opening sequence because this thing is 150 minutes long, and Bond has to live through it, and this guy hasn’t been in a hospital since he was born, so shorten the action sequence to where the helicopter only does ONE barrel roll, and let us move on to the title sequence.
Now, I find the opening sequence absolutely gorgeous, but most people have complained about the song by Sam Smith, which I’m okay with, it’s not the worst Bond theme, and you’re not going to top Skyfall, so I can let that go. I’m going to skip over the obvious tentacle porn joke, because I really like how they integrated the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. logo. Unlike most Bond title sequences, this didn’t bore the shit out of me, so I’ll give them props for that. But there’s still no constant theme running through (besides the tentacles), which is part of what made Casino Royale‘s title sequence so great. Still, this is probably the last thing I would complain about.
Now, what I like about how they open the first act is how they handle the other characters of MI6 in addition to Bond. We see Bond’s barely decorated London apartment, which we’ve never seen before, an interesting, if unsurprising look into the private life of 007. M (Ralph Fiennes) used to just be a guy who gave Bond his missions from behind a desk, but we now actually see what he has to put up with, especially since now the 00 program is getting ready to be replaced by a mass surveillance system called “Nine Eyes.” Ben Whishaw’s skittish Q is still fitting nicely into Desmond Llewelyn’s shoes, and the “will they, won’t they” set up for Bond and Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) feels natural. Bond reveals to Moneypenny that Judi Dench’s M posthumously sent him on a mission to kill his target in Mexico and “don’t miss the funeral.” So after M grounds Bond, he enlists Q and Moneypenny to help him carry out this personal mission that doesn’t really make any sense looking at it from M’s perspective. Shouldn’t this guy have already been a priority if Judi Dench was telling Bond about him from the dead right as he was planning to blow up a stadium?
Anyway, Q puts microbot tracking things in Bond’s bloodstream, which proves useless for the rest of the movie, because it’s supposed to add tension to the Bond disobeying M plot, but Q just lies to M over the phone anyway. It’s just one more thing we have to think about that doesn’t affect the overall story at all. Q could have contacted Bond in one way or another without approaching him in person at a ski resort psychiatrist’s office (seriously, what even is that place?). I’ll get more into Lea Seydoux’s Dr. Madeleine Swann later.
Bond goes to Rome for the funeral against M’s orders to attend the funeral of the guy he kicked out of a helicopter. The attendees are mostly made up of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. employees and the woman Bond made a widow. We get our first look at Christoph Waltz, who I thought was in the right amount of the movie (more on that later) but we don’t see his face, and he leaves as soon as Bond is in his peripheral vision. After saving the widow in a very Roger Moore-esque exchange, he begins seducing the widow with some of the most awkward kissing I’ve ever seen on film, before giving him the location of a S.P.E.C.T.R.E. meeting. We never see this woman again, checking the box for “The Bond girl nobody cares about.”
This is where it gets interesting. Bond attending the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. meeting was in all of the teasers, so the impact was most certainly lost. Christoph Waltz controls the room without saying a word or showing his face, which is all thanks to the cinematography and Mendes’ direction. I guess I’ll refer to him as Blofeld because it’s easier to type (and we all knew he was going to be Blofeld anyway). Blofeld addresses the events in Mexico, and Mr. Hinx (Dave Bautista) takes the place of the man at the other end of the table by gouging his eyes out with what appear to be metal fingernails. We don’t exactly get a good look at Hinx, for most of the time he’s on screen. It’s clear that he’s a near-indestructible monster, but… he’s Jaws. He’s just a bigger version of Jaws. I understand it’s difficult to create new villains in a time where everybody nitpicks the logic, but you moved the steel from one part of the body to another, and you made sure he didn’t talk until his last appearance. They even killed him the way Brody, Quint and Hooper tried to kill Jaws! After Blofeld addresses Bond directly, he runs and we get a boring car chase (though humorous in that half the car’s gadgets hadn’t been installed yet) capped off by Bond ejecting from the car. Meanwhile, we’re getting exposition from Moneypenny, and so we don’t groan at the idea of returning to Quantum of Solace, we’re given something almost as boring to look at.
Anyway, Bond goes to Austria to find Mr. White (Jesper Christensen) dying of thallium poisoning and eventually convinces him to lead him to S.P.E.C.T.R.E. through his daughter, Madeleine, who as all Bond girls do, rebuffs James at first before eventually succumbing to his charm after he saves her life. This is where I might go on a bit of a rant, because her addition to this cast and the plot drags out this movie and extra thirty minutes at least. Instead of White telling Bond about the hotel in Morocco, we have to wait until Bond gets it out of Swann, all because Bond had to be a man of his word. I guess they just wanted a chase sequence in the snow instead of Morocco because they already had Mexico as their “hot and arid climate” chase setting. I don’t hate Seydoux. She’s serviceable in her role, but she’s added in to up the stakes for Bond as a love-interest, which he shouldn’t have, because Eva Green’s Vesper was supposed to be the last woman Bond would ever love (or trust for that matter). This was just some bullshit added in so that Bond (by which I mean Daniel Craig) could have a reason to “leave” at the end. We now have to endure a long train conversation about guns and self-defense before Hinx interrupts and other shoehorned character development. Not to mention just waiting for stuff to happen like when they’re picked up in an old-fashioned Rolls Royce.
But back to Austria, it is revealed that all of the villains we’ve seen Craig’s Bond defeat (yes even in Quantum) is connected through S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and I’m fine with it. Is it forced? Sure, but what did we expect? This is one of several things in the movie meant to give it a finale vibe for both Craig and Mendes, a privilege no other Bond actor was ever given. Q is utilized well here, but like I said before, he doesn’t need to be there for anything other than the screen-time his agent probably fought for. Swann reveals the name White gave Bond is the hotel in Morocco, in which Bond drunkenly points a gun at a rat which leads him to S.P.E.C.T.R.E. That sounds ridiculous, and it is, but at this point, I don’t care, because we’re already deep into Roger Moore territory, so this already can’t be taken that seriously anymore. I don’t know how White accessed that room without tearing up the dry wall, but I’m letting that go, because we’ve got coordinates to a crater in the desert! I almost forgot about the car chase with the plane and the car after Madeleine is taken by Hinx, because nothing happens in it. Craig follows the car with the plane, they exchange bullets, and then Bond crashes the plane into the cars so he can get Madeleine. It’s a boring sequence that lasts way too long, but it’s okay, because we got the girl who refuses to talk to Bond that he will eventually have sex with.
So now we’re finally meeting Blofeld for real this time. The introductory sequence with the meteorite is beautifully shot, as is most of this movie. Aside from maybe Skyfall, this has the best cinematography of any Bond movie. Anyway, Blofeld reveals that he created Nine Eyes which will give S.P.E.C.T.R.E. unlimited access to the entire intelligence community (though it looks as if they already have it?) and monologues about his evil plan as Blofeld is prone to do. What follows is one of the best torture scenes in 007 canon, second only to Casino Royale‘s medieval vasectomy. Blofeld reveals his personal connection to James, as well as his full name “Ernst Stavros Blofeld” which he adopted from his mother’s side of the family. And this is something that I had mixed feelings about. I do think Blofeld should have some kind of personal beef with Bond. Bond messes with his operations, he killed Bond’s wife. That’s as simple as it should be. I think it’s too much of a stretch to say that Blofeld is essentially his step-brother with daddy issues. We’re supposed to think of Blofeld as a scoiopathic criminal mastermind, but here he’s just a child jealous of his father’s attention. And we get to think “Oh, well he’s crazy, so it all makes sense.” But Bond would probably remember Franz Oberhauser, and he doesn’t reveal that to anyone, not even the audience. I get that he’s not supposed to trust anyone, but he trusts everyone in this movie to do their jobs. I guess it wouldn’t do anyone any good if they knew Bond’s connection to him. This whole backstory just feels to convenient for me, and it feels dumb that these just happen to be the paths that both characters took. The whole “author of all your pain” thing feels like a desperate attempt at making Blofeld appear even more villainous, when all we need is him in the chair. Granted, this scene with the watch giving Blofeld his eye wound was a nice addition.
Bond handily escapes the facility killing S.P.E.C.T.R.E. soldiers one shot at a time while accidentally blowing up the entire station with one fire. He and Madeleine rendezvous in London with the now defunct 00 section of MI6 which only consists of M, Q, and Moneypenny (wouldn’t it be great to meet other 00 agents again?). I almost forgot Tanner (Rory Kinnear) but that’s just because he doesn’t do anything in this movie. On their way to arrest Max Denbigh, aka “C” (Andrew Scott [aka Moriarty from Sherlock]), Bond, M, and Q t-boned by a pick-up truck, which I didn’t think existed in England, and kidnap Bond. M has his final confrontation with C, and ends up killing him as Q disables Nine Eyes. I don’t really have any problems with the scene except I couldn’t discern the punchline to M’s “What does C stand for?” joke. I now know he said “careless” which feels like a wasted opportunity at a better punchline. During the entire movie, M has basically only monologued about the importance of the 00-section and being able to pull the trigger, something that has probably been said in at least once during every actor’s stint as 007. I understand this subplot needed to be fleshed out more for the final act of the movie, and it works, but the whole surveillance and drone approach is clearly more effective in some ways than 9 agents who can seemingly do whatever they want without real consequence. But the rest of the English government is even more idiotic for thinking surveillance and drones can fully replace humans in terms of crime-prevention. There’s nothing more I can really say about that, but I didn’t really find it necessary that C die, especially the way he did.
Moving on to the final showdown between Bond and Blofeld in the ruins of the old MI6 headquarters. Bond’s name painted in red on the memorial wall would have been a nice touch had they not shown it in the trailer, and the whole firing range walk-through is a little too reminiscent of The Man with the Golden Gun for me to praise anyone for it. Bond finds Blofeld standing in a bulletproof cage that only exits one direction. As cool as so much of this was, it was a little over theatrical for my taste. Blofeld wasn’t ever one for painting directions on the walls and putting up pictures of deceased friends and enemies, he was just a bad guy who wanted Bond out of his hair. Anyway, Blofeld gives Bond three minutes before he blows up what’s left of the building so that he can either escape or die trying to save Madeleine. This is where Bond should have just escaped and stopped Blofeld on his own, but he has to save the girl he has very little chemistry with so that the audience likes him. Connery used to pull women in front of bullets after having sex with them. I’m just saying it’s uncharacteristic of Bond, especially at this point in Craig’s run, to give up a chance at saving the world to save a girl with whom he spent a few days.
Of all the deus ex machinas this movie throws at us, this one has to be the worst. Bond eventually finds Madeleine with less than a minute to get out of the building. We get the cliche “Do you trust me?” which has been said at least a hundred different times in similar scenarios, including Bond movies. They jump off the building, in full view of Blofeld and henchmen, and they land safely in a giant net. What was a net even doing there? Why would that have been at MI6 headquarters? How was it still set up? I don’t know, but we needed them to escape, so we got it. Then what follows is yet another fucking helicopter chase, this time with a boat, because we can’t seem to have a Bond movie without helicopters and boats. Bond takes down the chopper just by shooting at it with his pistol. At first, I was okay with him being desperate enough as to not let Blofeld escape. I would have preferred Blofeld escape and Bond deal with the fact that he failed despite saving an innocent life. But no, this is once again a finale for Mendes and for Craig, so that chopper has to go down with a shot to the engine in the dark from hundreds of feet away. Bond chooses not to kill Blofeld with the excuse of not having any bullets and M arrests him. It’s just stupid. It’s Pierce Brosnan-era stupid. We can’t leave any glaring loose ends before switching actors, which has only happened in Diamonds are Forever which had Connery continuing Lazenby’s story from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
The film ends with Bond driving off in the original Aston Martin with Madeleine, and thus concludes the story of the blonde blue-eyed Bond. Again, I have problems with this. The Aston Martin was a great reveal in Skyfall you can’t just do it again because you showed Q working to repair it early in the movie. That nostalgic hole was already filled. Also, as I’ve said earlier, Madeleine and Craig have terrible chemistry, and if anyone should be in the passenger seat of that car, it’s Moneypenny, but we needed a longer plot with more boring action sequences and a new Bond girl people care about, so Moneypenny is old news I guess.
I’m sure there’s more I could discuss, but that more or less concludes my review of Spectre. Craig’s Bond career has become a metaphor for the franchise as a whole, and instead of watching all 24 films now, you can just watch these four, and you’ll get the gist of it. The performances are all great, though I think the expectations for Christoph Waltz are unreasonably high, because everyone expects Hans Landa out of him. Craig’s Bond career has become a metaphor for the franchise as a whole, and instead of watching all 24 films now, you can just watch these four, and you’ll get the gist of it. Overall, Spectre is a solid entry in the Bond franchise. Yes, I said solid. Because what Bond fans have failed to realize, especially in recent years, is that very few of them are considered great films. The campy nature of most of these movies is a part of the Bond iconography, and Spectre exhibits some of the best and worst qualities of every era of the franchise. To reiterate some of the main points. It’s too long, the romance is contrived, pointless and unbelievable, the cinematography is off the charts, a lot of the action is lazily done, and while it does a good job of tying the rest of the Craig era together, it botched the relationship between the primary antagonist and the protagonist. Most of the people I know have already seen this, but in case you’ve read this detailed rant, I might still recommend it, because in spite of everything I’ve said, you can probably still enjoy it, and your opinion matters just as much as mine.
