Long-winded OPs suck.

Anyway, I hate all you Brits that get to see it in 9 days. :(

That's a strange and somewhat erotic pose he's in.

#4 Posted by Storm_Marine (11159 posts) -

Anyway, what's the big deal about this anyway? Are we so famished for a action movie that we'll settle for the sequel to Quantum of Sh it?

#5 Posted by SirWander (5176 posts) -

Why do I have to wait two more weeks after the UK release:cry:

I'm so hyped to see it, by the way. I've only seen the trailer once, I'm trying to keep my viewing experience as spoiler free as possible, and it looks amazing.

Dont hate us for being Brits, we cant help it. Besides Bond is one of our most famous Brits :P

The number one reason I am seeing this film is Naomi Harris:D:oops:

Quantum of Solace was a weird case. The writers strike was going on so Craig and the director had to finish up the script and plot themselves and neither have any writing experience. Plus this film has ridiculous pedigree behind it. Sam Mendes is directing and Roger Deakins is the cinematographer who is one of the best working today.

And to be honest, Quantum of Solace is not a bad movie. There have been worse Bond films like The World Is Not Enough and the 60s Casino Royale (granted it's supposed to be a parody, but that doesn't bar it from being awful).

It got a great review at IGN, but that's the only review I've seen (talking about Skyfall). They compared Bardem's performance to Ledgers!!

Yeah the reviews are definitely glowing thus far. 97% on RT after 31 reviews and an 8.3/10 average is really good.

There's nothing really spoilery from them but still, watch at your own risk.

Still.............Probably not going to watch it...............

Yeah, generic explosion, Chinese lanterns, Shanghai , Bond making out with a girl in a shower, and the stupid s hit that's happening in Aljosa's avatar.

They've been pretty quiet on the story details and rightfully so. All that's really been shown about the plot is the villian and he looks awesome.

I HAVE FAITH

#24 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26354 posts) -
Really looking forward to this. 'Casino Royale' was fantastic, I thought 'Quantum of Solace' was at least fun enough to watch, and this looks great. Awesome cast, Deakins involvement is a huge plus, and the early reviews have been very positive.

nice thread been looking forward to this for a while. let's hope it is on par with casino royale
#26 Posted by Storm_Marine (11159 posts) -

i'm tired of serious Bond already. We need one that's so cheesy it's unbelievable. Characters must include Kim Jong Un and Ghaddfi's corpse.

#30 Posted by Storm_Marine (11159 posts) -

Kim Jong Un smuggles diamonds in from Libya and uses them to make a giant laser mirror weapon thing in space. And only James Bond can stop him.

Yeah, Quantum of Solace was entertaining at least. Don't see why some treat it as some hugely terrible film.

Does he stop them by building another mirror to deflect back to the laser space weapon?

Yes. He has to seduce the De Beers heiress in order to get their diamonds and make it. Then he goes to Macau and plays cards with Kim Jong Un while the laser wars happen.

#39 Posted by Aljosa23 (25135 posts) -

I'm pretty lenient on Quantum of Solace. There's much worse films in the series like Moonraker and everything Brosnan made after GoldenEye.

Still, seems to be regarded as a worse movie then it actually is. Which is not to say it is very good or anything. Adequate I guess.

Something like that I think. Or not. Don't remember.

Can't say I'm looking forward to it. Craig is the worst Bond in my book. Totally lacks the charm so very well done by Connery and Moore.

This is the 1st James Bond movie I've been hyped for in years, I want to see it so bad.

The reviews for this film are really good. Picking up Mendes was a great idea.
