It's a modern movie, the odds are not in it's favor. With few exceptions they just seem to get worse and worse. Or maybe I've finally gotten old and cranky. Or all of the above.

There is absolutely no doubt that age is a big factor when it comes to how movies are perceived. The best example that comes to my mind is the Star Wars franchise. I saw the original trilogy as a kid and I absolutely fell in love with those movies. I even got those strong visceral feelings of excitement and anticipation. The prequel trilogy movies were largely derided by the adults but the kids absolutely loved them. At that point I realized that what a person sees as a "good" movie or a "crappy" movie is largely based on their age.

He has none. He's treating his personal opinion as if it's some sort of mathematical axiom.

The Daniel Craig Casino Royale? Skyfall? Worse than some of the older ones?

For me, the Sean Connery and Daniel Craig Bond films are the best. In retrospect the Roger Moore films are quite campy/cheesy for the most part even though I absolutely loved them as a kid.

For me it's Roger Moore first then Craig, some of that is the fact that most of the bonds I saw as a kid were Moore I think. Plus I used to love hearing what an absolute gent he was.

This story for an example :

"As a seven-year-old in about 1983, in the days before First Class Lounges at airports, I was with my grandad in Nice Airport and saw Roger Moore sitting at the departure gate, reading a paper. I told my granddad I'd just seen James Bond and asked if we could go over so I could get his autograph. My grandad had no idea who James Bond or Roger Moore were, so we walked over and he popped me in front of Roger Moore, with the words "my grandson says you're famous. Can you sign this?"

As charming as you'd expect, Roger asks my name and duly signs the back of my plane ticket, a fulsome note full of best wishes. I'm ecstatic, but as we head back to our seats, I glance down at the signature. It's hard to decipher it but it definitely doesn't say 'James Bond'. My grandad looks at it, half figures out it says 'Roger Moore' - I have absolutely no idea who that is, and my hearts sinks. I tell my grandad he's signed it wrong, that he's put someone else's name - so my grandad heads back to Roger Moore, holding the ticket which he's only just signed.

I remember staying by our seats and my grandad saying "he says you've signed the wrong name. He says your name is James Bond." Roger Moore's face crinkled up with realisation and he beckoned me over. When I was by his knee, he leant over, looked from side to side, raised an eyebrow and in a hushed voice said to me, "I have to sign my name as 'Roger Moore' because otherwise...Blofeld might find out I was here." He asked me not to tell anyone that I'd just seen James Bond, and he thanked me for keeping his secret. I went back to our seats, my nerves absolutely jangling with delight. My grandad asked me if he'd signed 'James Bond.' No, I said. I'd got it wrong. I was working with James Bond now.

Many, many years later, I was working as a scriptwriter on a recording that involved UNICEF, and Roger Moore was doing a piece to camera as an ambassador. He was completely lovely and while the cameramen were setting up, I told him in passing the story of when I met him in Nice Airport. He was happy to hear it, and he had a chuckle and said "Well, I don't remember but I'm glad you got to meet James Bond." So that was lovely.

Beautiful.

Right from first trailer my reaction I said it and now many on the net says the same thing.

Look up No Time To Die WOKE

For many years Black folks been calling for James Bond to be played by a Black Actor. Women been calling for James Bond to be played by a woman actor.

In this new Bond film, Bond retired, so they gave his 007 # to 1. a woman and 2. a Black woman. The producers have covered their bases.

Read the comments under all these YouTube trailers.







The most successful and longest running movie series is now dead.

My James Bond collection officially ends at Bond 24. This new Bond film will not be in my Bond collection. This is Craig's last Bond film. Bond 26 may be in my collection if it's doesn't have a political agenda like No Time To Die.

The Spy Who Came In From The Cold is a much better spy film than any of the Bonds. Fewer gadgets, but far better plot, spycraft, characters.

The massive success of the Jason Bourne series is what convinced the producers to “reboot” the Bond franchise into a more serious and dark Bond.

Mostly just movies in general. The Bond series may not be the best example of this as I remember the Pierce Brosnan ones being ok and Casino Royale was excellent.

I actually liked On Her Majesty's Secret Service. George Lazenby might not have made a good Jame Bond, but forget that he's supposed to be Bond and take it as it's own spy movie, it was good. Maybe that makes me a terrible critic of the Bond series though.

Disney and Marvel, HARD PASS!

Instead of wasting time and money on this trash, release another Mandalorian season this year and not next year,

It’s amazing how someone’s posting behavior can be such a one-trick pony.

You DO realize that the "Clarice" character has existed on film WELL before the SJW era right? Silence of the Lambs came out in 1990 so was that before or after you were born NoFlyBoy?
