I will be seeing it as well. The vast majority of reviews from the critics are glowing and many of them have made the comment that "No Time to Die" is a very fitting send-off for Daniel Craig.

My girlfriend and I are probably going to go see it at a fancy theater as our first foray back into movie theaters. Probably not opening night, but as soon as we can.

Woke Politics killed the Bond franchise, any talk of a new Bond is entirely subterfuge. there is no possible continuation of the franchise now.

Love my box set which ends with Spectre; not interested in any more.

I will take a wait and see attitude. After all, Barbara Broccoli calls the final shots when it comes to the Bond franchise so we'll see what happens in 2022.

Not me. I won't support a woke Bond film. At the end of the credits it says James Bond Will Return. Go see the movie and come back and explain to me How will he return. You will know what I mean after you see the movie. I think they are going to reboot the series with a female James Bond or a gay James Bond or a African American James Bond. The African American community been demanding for several years now that James Bond be played by a Black actor Idris Elba . The gay community been demanding that James Bond should be gay. Women been saying James Bond should be a Jane Bond.

They already in this movie gone and replace James Bond with an African American woman and gave her his 00 # of 007 after Bond rode off into the sunset in his Aston Martin with the French girl and quit the British Secret Service at the end of Spectre: the 00 # reassignment was clearly shown in the first preview that was released back in early 2020. If they can reassign 00 numbers, they can also reassign the name James Bond. After all anyone who works in the gadget department is called Q and anyone who is his boss is called M. So why not makes James Bond is just a name given out to agents? Just like actresses and actors have a professional name they use when they are acting.

Also what happened to the Bond-esque action sequences we came to know and love. This is more like a long-drawn out family drama. James Bond, the family man, making pancakes for his kid's breakfast. Also the director of this movie called Sir Sean Connery a rapist. Why would the producers hire someone to direct a Bond film when he doesn't understand the Bond character and the entire Bond series?

https://www.buzzfeed.com/emilymaeczachor/james-bond-director-007-once-raped-a-woman

I know why. So they can say (which they did, GOOGLE it) proudly he made history as the first Asian to direct a Bond film and during this Covid times where Asians are being blamed for it, that's a triumph for the Asian community: gotta check that box and score point..

Now that Amazon purchased MGM which includes the Bond films library, they will want to have something to say about the future James Bond film even if the Bond film are made by EON/DANJAQ productions owned by Barbara Broccoli. Amazon can only stream the Bond films that are already out and the new ones still get a theatrical release first. Owning MGM and the Bond films library does not give Amazon any say in how the movies are produced and written but you know Amazon, they might still try and Amazon and Netflix are all about Woke and checking every box.

James Bond is a relic of the cold war. His sleeping around and drinking and smoking and slapping women before he makes love to them and killing some of them after making love to them doesn't go well with today's society. It's clear that the producers want to draw a line under the James Bond franchise and start afresh pandering to the 'woke mob' , bring him to the 21st Century, so no segment of the movie audience are neglected and hoping that future tokenistic nonsense will prove as successful as the original premise was. It won't and never will. James Bond is an institution and it deserves respect, not total destruction. Classic Bond films will continue to be on TV and still fondly remembered for years to come.

I'm going to start a new movement called WokeWoke. It's the hysterical reaction to anything that anybody anywhere once called woke. smile

As for whether I'll see it - nah. I haven't seen a Bond movie for a long time. I've seen segments of them, lots of them, but nothing complete since maybe Moonraker or something like that. Not really a Bond fan since Connery.

I may end up watching this in my home theater. I want to go to see it in public but having lived through my wife's debilitating permanent illness whom researchers are now comparing to long covid(they may even be the same as ME/CFS is initiated by viruses), I can't gather up the cajones needed.

Understandable especially since the movie is 163 minutes long so you would be in a movie theatre for at least 3 hours.
