This is SO cool. I'm tempted to watch GoldenEye again and listen to Brosnan at the same time.

Nice! It's like going to the movies with Pierce Brosnan. Might give it a listen sometime.

I watched it over the weekend. I definitely recommend it. Brosnan flags toward the end--I think he just runs out of stories to tell--but there's a lot of good behind-the-scenes stuff. And Brosnan is a class act all the way.

It just made me happy :)



I watched Skyfall after a lengthy break from our rewatch. This'll get an 8 from me.

I loved this initially, then was a little less impressed on second viewing. It's gone back up in my estimations this time though. It's gripping for the duration, and doesn't feel too long despite running over two hours. There's some wonderful scenery and shots (particularly the fight in Shanghai). Bardem makes for a great villain and his interactions with both Bond and M are interesting and involving. There's great chemistry between Bond and Moneypenny too. I do think Craig sounds a bit stilted and awkward with one or two of his lines, but is good overall. Theme song is decent. Like Quantum before, Bond somehow defies death with that plunge from the train at the start. Not sure why this bothers me in the Craig era, as there's always been ridiculous escapes and such in Bond movies, but it breaks the immersion a touch.



So work has been fucked ever since quarantine started but I was able to watch Skyfall and Spectre with my brother. I would do a more in-depth review but I've been so exhausted that I'll just rate 'em since other users have already stated what I would say about them.

Skyfall 9/10
Spectre is a 10



Finally got round to a rewatch of Spectre.
I really like the start but overall its rather boring. Waltz so enjoyable normally is so badly miscast.

There are good elements and Fiennes, Harris and Whishaw continue to impress but i was left disappointed after Skyfall.
6/10

I need to get around to Skyfall and SPECTRE. After the delay was announced I lost a lot of momentum :(



I don't want to watch Spectre again. It's the only Bond movie I've ever fallen asleep to while watching.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
