Virgil, you don't have to be down on Brosnan's movies to be cool anymore; it's 2015. ajb007/biggrin

Nothing to do with coolness, more like fairness. I've been consistent since 1997: TND is my all time least favourite Bond. Not even DAD changed my mind. DAD story is much more solid. With TND I felt cheated.

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

I think where Goldeneye excels is replay value.

TND, TWINE and DAD were all more fun for me in my first viewing, but I'm more interested in viewing GE a second time.

I don't get it. You seem a likable chap, and intelligent to boot. How can it be your least favourite yet MY third favourite? I understand not being fond of it, but sending it to the bottom? ajb007/confused

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

TND, apart from a weak  line up of villains is a great film.
Some of the best stunt work and action sequences in any
Bond.  ajb007/wink  ( Just my opinion)  ajb007/smile

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

Just watched most of it on Blu Ray, and it seems so much better. Even the musical score wasn't bugging me at all... but... never noticed before how red Brosnan's eyes were when he was hanging upside down in the men's room. ajb007/amazed
ETA: The FX looked SO much better in the end (just finished it). ajb007/martini

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

I actually found Goldeneye to be a good movie but a little weak in some places.   They could have done a little more with the BMW Z.3 than what we had in the film............

85

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

I think they only did the deal with BMW at the last minute.

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

Cons: I think GE has some pacing issues, too much Boreeesss, Serra's score is lacking in many spots, and Natalia's hair is too short. Other than that, it's just about perfect.

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

Pros;
First Bond film in 6 years!
Theme Song
Monte Carlo
The Girls!
Sean Bean
Costume Design
Omega Seamaster

Cons;
Soundtrack
BMW Z3
Jack Wade
Tank Chase (sorry)
Catching the plane

Despite the cons, I really do like Goldeneye. Like many of the films, you can easily forgive the bits that irritate slightly.

I just think it's a bit much. I'm not a fan of Bond destroying everything in his path and the using a sledgehammer to crack a nut sequences.

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

I think people were just saying 'finally, a new bond!' and probably loved it more than they should have, given what we have now.

And I think it suffers a bit on a re-watch because there seems to be a cheap feeling to some of the set pieces and effects.
