Yes, it’s been out a while, but it’s still on, and there was bugger all on that either of us wanted to see at the right time, so although neither of us had been to see a Bond film at the cinema before we decided to go see.
And I adored the opening credits. Just Ad-dored. Very very clever and at bloody last no stereotypically naked wimmin.
And OMG Craig does it for me. His smile is utterly irresistible and for once we have a non-hairy Bond which made me happier still. He’s SO bloody buff, what a body. WHAT A BODY. He’s certainly got my vote. There was enough in jokes to keep the inner Bond fan amused and I spotted Vesper from just about when she sat down, the bitch.
Excellent, but not over the top gadgets, near death moments that had me actually worried (although that WAS a bit stupid of me, I realise…) and wonderful chase scenes too. I remember watching a “making of” programme a while back when they actually blew up that plane – a real plane!!! And then they changed their mind!! That’s class, that is.
And am I so very very wrong to be writing in the slash during the NAKED BALL BASHING??? Bond: “They’ll say that you died while scratching my balls”
I thought it was about half an hour too long, though, which I’ve noticed is often a gripe of mine. If it had been action or plot I wouldn’t have cared, probably, but there was far too long on the Le Mushy Stuff would could easily have been cut.
But YAY! I shall certainly be going to Bond again as long as the Divine Mr Craig is up for it.
