I didn't like Quantum of Solace much, then saw it on TV a few times. It actually has many good parts. But the stupid parts erase your memory of them.
The car chase at the beginning was great, but quickly followed by a long pointless foot chase through streets and crowds with horses and whatnot. It could have been cut down to 10 seconds.
The entire movie was that way. They were doing a modern Bond, but had an urge to go back to the 'old style' bond.
Quantum of Solace has been growing on me. Maybe its because its the Bond that I havent watch a million times!
Very cool. Looks like this will be the best Bond in terms of cinematography. One of the great cinematographers of our time Roger Deakins.
Interesting article, maybe be a bit ambitious though.
5 Reasons Why Skyfall Might Be The Best James Bond Film Ever
I feel like that article echos my belief though mostly on the fact that it has the best crew of any other Bond film.
I like the new take on Q.
Oh a younger Q, interesting in deed. I guess it makes more sense though
What I want to know is what kind of gadget he is going to give Bond!
The IMAX Skyfall trailer was shown at Comic Con last night and wooed the audience, especially with the train sequence footage. And there was good amount of exchange between Q and Bond.
Trailer COME ON online.
I've read that he is being compared to Simon Pegg in Mission Impossible series bringing that light humor to the table. I'm hoping to see this new preview with TDKR IMAX on the 20th
My beef with the picture of the new Q is twofold:
1 - He looks too much like a Matt Smith/David Tennant cross Doctor. Maybe one I see/hear him it won't, but that would assume he isn't going to be a fast-talking know-it-all.
2 - Too young. Again, we'll see how it's played (i.e. if he's not THE Q, but just a random member of Q branch). I just find it hard to believe someone that young is going to be given security clearance at Bond's level that quickly. Senior members of the office should be, well, senior (well, maybe not 60, but at least in their 40s). Youth automatically == inexperience and thus it appears to be more of an attempt to pander to a younger audience.
I like the thought of a young tech geek as Q. It just seems more plausible that a younger kid who grew up in the fast pace technology era already familiar with the tech instead of an old man trying to learn how to use an iPhone.
Not going to judge Q until I see him in the context of the movie, but my first thought is, "god, no". Looking at that image, Craig and Q seem like they're in two separate films.
May very well be proven wrong, though!
I'm interested in seeing what a young Q will bring to the table. Maybe he'll be a stark contrast to how the Craig Bond functions.
Q: By using this, you can easily take down your enemies without making a mess of things.
Bond: ... But I want to punch stuff.
Finally a Bond movie with badass cinematography.
LIKE A BOSS 8-)
gotta make sure those cufflinks are straight
