The Eternals.

Was boring. I think Marvel films, but this is the first one that was just boring.


No Time To Die

Massive Bond fan. Grew up with them. Loved Craig's Bond. Gasino Royale is one of my all-time favourite films, so I've got a deep emotional connection to his Bond. The rest of his films have ups and downs, but I really enjoy them all. Even if I really hated the choices they made with Blofeld in Spectre and trying to wrap up the previous films into that. This film encapsulates everything that is Craig's time as Bond. It's a mix of all that.

Some really great stuff. Not so great and also stuff that doesn't work for me. The villain's plot is weak, but then you don't go to a Bond film for the villain's evil plan.

The first hour is fantastic. Absolutely superb without a misstep. There's a great scene in Cuba and Arna De Armas is a treat! The second hour is still great but some cracks appear. Last 40 minutes it kind of goes off the rails. Gets a bit messy but still with great stuff throughout it. This might be sound like I've being done, but the film does remake good throughout. I just ultimately wasn't satisfied by how they sought to bring all the lose ends together with wrapping up the villian's plot and Craig's time as Bond. like how I didn't like how they tried that in Spectre. Yet ultimately, still a great watch.

It actually kind of is following the trajectory of the previous 4 films, condensed into one movie.

The 2 hour and 40 minutes flies by. There's never a dull or boring moment in the film. Superbly crafted and made.

They're said it's definitely Craigs last film. Sad to see the end of his era but of course, as it says at the end of the credits. "James Bond will return."

I'll be there for that, hoping they can knock it out of the park like they did with Brosnan's and Craig's first entries.
Did it say ‚James Bond will return‘ or ‚Bond will return‘?

I liked it - I like the Bond movies although I haven‘t seen all of them. I watched it on a flight. I kept having to pause it to recover from the dramatic tension! And I love Ana de Armes. She is fabulous!

It was "James Bond will return."

Ana de Armes was great. Fun little tidbit, her legs in that fight scene were CGI. It was shot without her wearing high heels. So they replaced her legs in post.

The level of CGI in the film is ridiculous. Although the quality is top-notch and so you don't notice almost every location and set has a CGI overlay/extension.

The Bond films are worth exploring. Even the lesser ones still have good stuff. There are also good documentaries about the making of each film on the DVDs / blu-rays. I wish streaming services would have special features. They really can help you appreciate and understand films on another level.

I agree with this so much. I don’t often watch movies more than once (with a few notable exceptions) but I used to spend so much money buying dvds and then blurays for exactly this reason. Sometimes I wouldn’t even watch the movie because I had already seen it at the cinema, but I would watch all the special features. Miss that.
