Yes with friends and relatives have seen it 3 times also.     SPOILERS-

Did you notice just before Hinx attacks Bond on the train there is his reflection in the cutlery on the table?
That's an old school Bond film technique to see danger in a reflection.
(e.g. -beginning of Goldfinger-Bonita knocked out as Bond swings her around after seeing the attacker reflected in her eye.)

I've bought myself the book-Blood, Sweat and Bond which is a good photographic record of the actors
and the scenes.  The helicopter crash was convincing at the end.

Damn! You must really love this film. How many times have you seen Skyfall?

I might be heading to the movie later today to see it for the fourth time depending on what my schedule is like.


Yes I love it, in fact it made No 1 in my ranking. GoldenEye was my No 1 for 20 years.

Skyfall I have seen "only" three times at the cinema.

I gotta agree with you, I like Spectre more than Skyfall and Casino Royale. It had grow on me  ajb007/smile

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

Saw Spectre for the 4th time this afternoon  ajb007/martini

57

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

So the wife wanted to see it again (her 4th) and my 8th. I think I am good now till it is released on DVD.  ajb007/martini  It was nice to see the theater still almost full just in case I get the bug one more time before before it is gone. Even after 8 times there are still small gems I am finding that I have noticed before.

58

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

I've seen it twice.  But I will be seeing it at least another couple of times.  Then obviously on DVD/Bluray in 6 months time.

In a way I miss times gone by. 

I'd see the latest Bond film, say YOLT at the cinema, at least twice or three times on it's release.

Then I'd have to wait another year for it to come around again and I'd go to see it again at least once or twice.

A year later it would come back around to the cinema this time shown with Thunderball or Goldfinger as a double header, so I'd go again.

Now Bond films are like a ready meal in a microwave cooker. 

Go to the cinema and watch it as many times as you can in it's 12 week run. 

However after that even if you didn't make it to the cinema, you'll still be able to buy it from your favourite store in the summer of 2016. 

A far cry from my youth and early adulthood.

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

Three to date, will go again later this week for a fourth. Then maybe a fifth to tag along with my partner who has yet to see it.
I needed four bites at Skyfall to actually grow to love the film (hated it in on first look).
With SPECTRE my ranking increases each trip so far. 3.5 out of 5, 3.7 out of 5 then a solid 4.1 out of 5.
Will definitely buy it when it comes out on Blu-Ray too.
Am slightly jealous of friends that are yet to see it, as they have that unknowing excitement still to come.
Nailed three Vespers after the last viewing (a few too many beers and wine along with it).

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

I'm now just over 24 hours from finally watching Spectre! It's been an awfully long wait, but I'm really excited to see it. I've got some catching up to do, and it'll be great to finally be able to read some of the threads I've been avoiding, listening to podcasts etc.

64

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

9 times here!

65

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

ajb007/cheers  well done.

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

66

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

I've seen it six times in total.
1. On my own
2. With my partner
3. With my Dad
4. On my own again (at a loose end after an eye appointment)
5. With one group of friends
6. With another group of friends

Then it'll be multiple viewings on DVD. It has a cosy quality to it I feel will lend itself to lots of repeat viewings. especially at Xmas! I do miss 'The James Bond Film' ITV used to show during the festive period. It made the films feel even more special.

By the way, with regard to Hinx's reflection in the cloche - it also reminds of when Brosnan sees the villain sneaking up behind him on the yacht in GOLDENEYE. I love it when Brosnan dabs his face with the towel after throwing him down the stairs. People tend to forget how good Brosnan was at little bits like that.

Well on 13th Dec took another relative for me to see it a 4th time.
Some of the slow quiet scenes seemed very atmospheric, like the resting in Le Americain hotel in Tangiers.
(i've seen the previous DC films 5 times each, but decades ago (pre-video) I saw Goldfinger loads of times in the cinema-probably 50 times including TV.)

When do we think that Spectre will finish in the cinemas? Skyfall went on to March 2012 but Spectre will finish a bit sooner I think.

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

Going for the 5th time today (have the tickets, hopefully nothing will come up at the last min) .... The cinema has regular shows now so no reserved seating, and ofc no UAVX .... Anyways, should still be fun  ajb007/smile

Re: Who Here holds the Spectre record?

Heard that in the states, Spectre will be leaving most theaters next Thursday to make room for Xmas day entries...one week left to see it on the screen again?
