Re: Spectre, one year later

Poor planning indeed.

Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool. Craig is too.

Do I dislike it because of that? Nah, what they did get right was oh so right. I actually do love it from beginning to end.

Re: Spectre, one year later

I loved this movie when it was first released and even called it the best Daniel Craig bond movie. Now, four years later I definitely do not hold the same opinion. It just seems to get worse on every rewatch, where I point out more and more flaws than ever before.

My issues:

* Poor Bond girl
* The entire love plot between them just seems to go nowhere and they have no chemistry
* The entire character of C (I hated him the first time I saw SP)
* Its just all action but very little plot in a film that feels flat and depressing
* It should have been split into two parts with the route they went
* No real climax
* The train fight - I didn’t actually like it that much. It feels poorly made
* Bond having hardly any gadgets in that Aston Martin
* Hinx - no character development or interacting on screen with a Blofeld and did he die or not?

It’s not a bad movie, but it feels like so much was crammed in.

I am mostly agree with your opinion ...
But the first time I saw Spectre, I was so disapointed ...  ajb007/rolleyes
Now I get used to it ...  ajb007/martini
