In case you haven't see this, I post it as likely the most wholesome thing you'll read today.

I hope the new film doesn't have that 'flash cutting' and 'shaky camera' stuff. The last two by Sam Mendes have been ok, so I hope it continues.
(Roger Moore didn't like Quantum of Solice for this reason).

JoBlo reviews No Time To Die. According to him, Bond is still a sociopath womanising dick so his character hasn't been toned down one bit. I might watch this one after all .. SPOILERS ..

Anything that brings Ana de Armas to a wider audience is fine by me.

ln a relevant piece of nominative determinism, “de Armas” in Spanish means “of weapons”.

No Swifty the Wokeists have emasculated Bond and we will all be castrated and in floral gowns by Christmas, which will be renamed "Lesbimas".

There are probably thousands of Youtube vids making similar arguments, most of which were made before the film came out.

Me too. I prefered the original Bond from the books though, who smoked about 400 Chesterfields a day, drank like a fish and had more sex than Scargy. -At least it doesn't look like they've done the 'shaky camera' nonsense either.

Does he come out of the closet and say, "I only shagged all those women because I thought that's what spies are supposed to do."

He self IDs as a woman; it turns out that Moneypenny was just a figment of his imagination and the others just indulged him in his fantasies. He now becomes Moneypenny and settles down to a quiet life as M's secretary.

No Time To Die: A heart rending love story is told against the background of intrigue, mad poisoners and assassins; oh, there's a new female 007 (Lashana Lynch) as well, Bond had retired for a few years. Bond's love interest, Madeline (Lea Seydoux) has an origin story as interesting as Hanna when she battles with a killer in a flashback to 20 years before. This film's main villain is Lyutsifer Safin (Rami Malek) an enemy of SPECTRE as well as not liking the existing world order or humanity in general. Blofeld features again, this time in a M.I.6 secret prison but still controlling his minions who loot an M.I.6 bio-warfare lab.Will Bond save the world and get the girl again? He has his trusty Aston Martin to assist him, this time complete with grenades, rockets, smoke-bombs and mini-guns, it should get Co-Star billing. Much derring-do, shootouts, mighty leaps and car chases. This techno-thriller makes a fitting swansong for Daniel Craig's Bond. Directed & Co-written by Cary Joji Fukunaga. 8/10.

I saw NTTD tonight. I thought it was a good movie. It didn't "feel" like a Bond movie although none of Daniel Craig's ever did. They were too hardcore/Jason Bourne to be Bond. Casino Royale was probably the most Bond-like.

I enjoyed the whole thing up until the end, which was
a total WTF. That wasn't a fitting end for James Bond. I suppose the only way forward is to "reboot" the whole franchise showing us a younger Bond on missions during his career or his daughter grows up to be Mathilda Bond. Either way, I was shocked.

I saw Jimmy Bond 5: More Bondage, it was OK, I liked it when the splosions happened and when people got killed, I didn't like it when people were talking and whatever.

7.653/10
