I think this would be better in the movies section. What do you think?

Actually no. People don't go there that often. Why split it away from the most used threads?

Have to say that I totally loved it 😀 I was so engrossed in the film, I didn't want it to end. My quick summing up: not as dark as Skyfall, some lovely touches of humour, great action set pieces, bigger roles for Q and Moneypenny and, goes without saying, Dan looked gorgeous and perfect ðŸ˜￾ Slight downsides: would have been good if they'd used Christoph Waltz a bit more, a few scenes too disconcertingly reminiscent of QoS (for me) and not enough of the DB10. But .... Did I mention that Dan was perfect and gorgeous??

And nice to see the return of an old friend 😉

Will definitely be going to see it again ...

Yes maybe, but I think, this makes it easier to find and to read for those, who are not here as often. They might think, there ARE no reviews, because they never look at the movies section.

Looking foward to see SPECTRE in two weeks :gaah: I can´t wait.

I have to say I did look in the Movies thread first for a Spectre post! I'll try to do something a bit more detailed later but thanks for moving my very brief report over here 😊

Seems the most problems some have is, that the characters and mostly the love affair is not fully developped. That seems to be the case IMO. One would think, 2 2/1 hours is time enough. I hope, they didn't go too light.

I mean, in the early movies, there was never a fully fletched character, but in Daniels movies got more used to that. We'll see. So far, most tweeters still love it and I hope the audiences just enjoy the ride and take it as a fun, exciting adventure with gorgeous locations and a great Bond. Plus some scenes obviously are very brutal. Should please many :lol:

But the love affair seems a bit unbelievable, from what I hear.

I would also like to add that I ended up being quite pleased that Lea Seydoux took pride of place as the female lead in Spectre. :) For so long, blonde women in Bond movies tend to end up as "evil" and, speaking as a blonde who likes to think of herself as a nice intelligent person, I promise we are NOT all that bad!!!! I like a good Blonde role model and Lea was quite effective in Spectre. 8)

Is it true that most of Monica's screen time ended up on the cutting room floor. I read something that her screen time nowhere equaled the billing she's getting, what a shame if true!

Don't know about that, but no, she is not in it long.

but I am happy to report, Marketto FLOVED it , so does Colonel Sun, who is a man from the industry, whom I respect.

The tweets are still going strong versus very positive and VERY positive regarding Daniel.

Saw Spectre tonight, on IMAX, very very good, they outdid themselves this time. Cracking film and so much action. Is it only me or were their teasing hints at the end that this is his last one. Personally I think it is just teasing, saw he also co produced it with others. I hope he stays as Bond, it was very like the Bond films, loved the start with him showing his chest, something I thought he wouldn't do. Thought it was much much better than Skyfall, the cinemas had four screens showing Spectre so it should be a hit as it was packed out.
Loved the end where he drove off to the tune of bond, Excellent.
