The most over rated film of all time must be
"The King's speech " Colin Firth can't deliver a line
without stuttering. You'd think an actor with his talent
could have covered that up better. ajb007/lol

“I didn’t lose a friend, I just realised I never had one.”

Re: Skyfall "Most over-rated film of all time"

My single biggest problem with SF is that Craig developed what I call the Daf curse: four years since the last movie and man have you aged. But instead if working with it, they gave him a buzz cut that only accentuated it. ajb007/confused
Like Jack Slater would say, Big mistake.

I always thought the shaving scene in SF was to show
Bond emerging  fresh again. Like a butterfly.  ajb007/wink  to show
he's back on form, so he had to look a bit  rough before it.

ajb007/lol now you're talking!

Re your other point: SF and TWINE. IMHO they have the same kind.of relationship as QoS and LTK, in that they share many plot/theme similarities.

Re: Skyfall "Most over-rated film of all time"

I was comparing LTK to QoS, and TWINE to SF- not qualitatively, but in their plots and themes.

Re: Skyfall "Most over-rated film of all time"

I just finished Skyfall again,  and seriously, it was TMWTGG level stupid. Which means, I like it a lot, but it's the low point of Craig's movies IMO. ajb007/rolleyes

Re: Skyfall "Most over-rated film of all time"

Hello All. My first post so I may as well kick the door in.

Skyfall was, as they say in China, Clap. The worst Bond movie to date, overhyped, oversold & over here. The only decent film DC has featured in thus far is Casino Royale.

I'll write on the report card 2/10 must do better.

What? How dare you?

QOS was a solid little film, and in some small ways even better than CR!
Agree with you to a degree on SF though.

Welcome! ajb007/cheers
