Well not literally, but that pretty much sums up how I feel about the prospect of yet another Bond movie.
The ‘slash my wrists’ is a Daniel Craig quote when asked a few years ago if he intended to ever play Bond again. He said he’d rather slash his wrists, and that if he ever did return it would only be for the money.
And yet here he is again. Such inspiration to know the main actor was dead against ever starring in another Bond movie and that he has succumbed to greed. I’m sure he needed the money - and self-worth and principles are not important.
With regards to this much delayed film, I’ve read at each delay, the disappointment of fans who couldn’t wait to see the movie. I’m not sure why they couldn’t wait to see another overly commercialised formulaic tedious plot-less wanton display of this ridiculous zero-intellect dross.
Maybe they couldn’t wait for yet another huge opening scene where the audience sits agape, popcorn chested, wondering how James is going to emerge from this multi-faceted attack on his life, defying all odds to walk away with not even the merest mark on his shirt, and his tie not even displaced by one millimetre.
I’m sorry but I can’t stand to even watch some unbelievable screen romance between ‘James’ and a girl young enough to be his daughter if not grand-daughter. She’ll swoon and melt in his arms saying ‘Oh James, oh James, is our age-inappropriate relationship doomed to fail in this new politically correct world, or will the woke allow our love to blossom?’
So we’ll have the pathetic opening scene where most of the budget is burnt. Then we’ll have the inappropriate love interest. Then we’ll be introduced to the latest gadgets which James will be issued with and will later be seen in use as a primary way to take down the henchman. Thing is, the movie was made a few years ago and had been delayed due to the pandemic (or more accurately delayed due to the bean counters wanting to ensure sufficient number of dullards are able to attend the cinema. Well we know it’s all about the money as Daniel has made clear.)
So the technological gadgets are actually old fashioned believe it or not. (The pace of technology advancements is rapid as we know and it’s at least 2-3 years that’s elapsed since this film was made.) For example, I hear James is issued with a Sony Walkman cassette player, and a car where a buzzer sounds if the driver hasn’t put on their seatbelt. He’s also issued a George Foreman grill which has a timer on it. But it’s not a grill it’s a bomb that James will plant so he can blow up the henchman’s island (once their pussy-cats have been taken out of harms way of course - wouldn’t want to upset the cat lovers).
And that is key to the final scene where the timer is actually set and is ticking down. We were still trying to get out of the EU when the movie was made. So the final scene is actually James arming the George Foreman grill bomb at the residence of the henchman Michelle Barnier. In a life or death struggle between Michelle and James the grill timer is ticking down and James knows he needs to get out of there before he is blown up. Thankfully he observes that the timer is faulty because amidst the life/death struggle with Barnier, he looks at the timer every 30 seconds or so, and realises the timer has only gone down by about 5 seconds. It’s like the fight is in some parallel time zone where time is in suspended animation.
Anyway, to our huge relief, James finally tears himself away from Barnier and his EU army foot soldiers. Barnier’s final and fateful words are heard just before his island is blown sky high. His final words were tragic and yet so accurate and poignant………. ‘The clock is ticking’. 😩
So there you are. No need to bother going to this dross. My post is not so much a plot-spoiler as a plot reminder if one was needed. A reminder that there is no plot. Yet rather there’s the same old same old formulaic dross churned out for the mass brain dead to lap up to fill the coffers of this franchise and all it’s millionaires. I’d rather slit my wrists.

Don’t like Daniel Craig he’s not a Bond for me and I agree it’s formulaic but there is a charm in that. You can leave your brain outside before you go in.

Trouble really is the essence of what Bond is and was created as does not sit well with the woke generation and he has to be portrayed as an outmoded dinosaur. Really the point is we are with him or should be.

Badly needs a reboot and a new younger Bond.

Met loads of the crew whilst they were filming up here. Non of the stars though, they were stopping at posh hotels and being helicoptered to the locations. Busiest people were the car mechanics, some loaned by the manufacturer.

Looks ace!


Craig is my favourite Bond, I can't get past Connery's wig or paunch in the later terrible films, Diamonds are Forever is just appalling, Lazenby was shite in a great film, Moore was let down by terrible scripts and too much comedy, Dalton never got a chance and Brosnan's quality dropped off a cliff.

Casino Royale has a good shout at being the best Bond film but I've got a personal love of Skyfall, Craig is closer to the books than anyone else, he's just a bastard, which is what Bond should be.

Connery v Craig is an interesting one and takes me back to my niece arguing with my old dear (her granny) after she had been to see Skyfall.

My little niece said Skyfall was the best ever Bond film and Craig was the best ever Bond, my old dear said everybody knows it's Connery and my niece countering with, "Just because your old".

I always thought it was a given that Connery was the best but Daniel Craig is bloody good, I am not informed enough to choose but Craig is a good actor whether or not he's in front of Connery in the James Bond stakes.

Much of the world’s population would be wiped out, yet Blackpool would have some weird immunity cos the diet is already as unhealthy as it gets. We’ve had that lame childish Star Wars filmed in Cleveleys. The next Bond will be filmed in Blackpool. It will be called Die A Decade Earlier.

On rock fm news tonight they said Blackpool men die 11 years earlier than in some areas of London, not a mere ten years earlier. I will try and be more accurate going forward.

So I’ve just got back from watching the Bond movie. I took my daughters and feigned enthusiasm.

It was everything I expected. The lengthy opening scene. The inappropriate love interest(s).
The gadgets. The evil cheesy henchman and his island which of course will be blown to smitherines.

I’ll give credit where it’s due. The opening scene was fantastic. It wasn’t like watching a Bond movie. It was compulsive viewing and edge of the seat stuff as we saw the foundations to the back story laid down.

But disappointingly the film soon reverted to type. There was the inappropriate love interest - the woman of his life is half his age. He also flirted with two others half his age. How rude and dismissive to middle age women. They don’t get a look in cos it must all be about youthful sexy looks.

There was the numerous scenes where he killed dozens of henchmen who for some reason despite being heavily armed, couldn’t seem to hit a barn door from two yards.

Ridiculously there were at least three scenes where poor James got blown up at point blank range. He shrugged these explosions off - with all his limbs intact - and staggered to his feet to carry on saving the day.

The final scene was quite good and emotional. So it’s basically two and a half hours of tedious dross bookended with some fine acting and filmography.

I would find it absolutely torturous if I was made to watch this film again. I’d rather listen to Lytham bleating about Brexit for two and a half hours. 😮

Your long-read article on the other hand; formulaic, unoriginal, way over-compensatory veinbulging bollocks. Have a crumpet or something and shut the fuck up.

I see “Beloved Leader” (Daily Mirror 22/19/21) has transformed the recently built £2.6M Downing Street briefing room into his own personal man cave, by screening on a private showing, the latest Bond Movie - “No Time To Die”

I have a cold heart, I absolutely love Bond movies though, can't wait to see the latest, I have seen every Bond movie since Diamonds are Forever at the Cinema.
Me too, I love Bond movies. Went last night to see it and I loved every second. Certainly didn't leave me wanting to slash my wrists 😆

Watch this new Bond movie? I’d rather slash my wrists.
Well not literally, but that pretty much sums up how I feel about the prospect of yet another Bond movie.
The ‘slash my wrists’ is a Daniel Craig quote when asked a few years ago if he intended to ever play Bond again. He said he’d rather slash his wrists, and that if he ever did return it would only be for the money.
And yet here he is again. Such inspiration to know the main actor was dead against ever starring in another Bond movie and that he has succumbed to greed. I’m sure he needed the money - and self-worth and principles are not important.
With regards to this much delayed film, I’ve read at each delay, the disappointment of fans who couldn’t wait to see the movie. I’m not sure why they couldn’t wait to see another overly commercialised formulaic tedious plot-less wanton display of this ridiculous zero-intellect dross.
Maybe they couldn’t wait for yet another huge opening scene where the audience sits agape, popcorn chested, wondering how James is going to emerge from this multi-faceted attack on his life, defying all odds to walk away with not even the merest mark on his shirt, and his tie not even displaced by one millimetre.
I’m sorry but I can’t stand to even watch some unbelievable screen romance between ‘James’ and a girl young enough to be his daughter if not grand-daughter. She’ll swoon and melt in his arms saying ‘Oh James, oh James, is our age-inappropriate relationship doomed to fail in this new politically correct world, or will the woke allow our love to blossom?’
So we’ll have the pathetic opening scene where most of the budget is burnt. Then we’ll have the inappropriate love interest. Then we’ll be introduced to the latest gadgets which James will be issued with and will later be seen in use as a primary way to take down the henchman. Thing is, the movie was made a few years ago and had been delayed due to the pandemic (or more accurately delayed due to the bean counters wanting to ensure sufficient number of dullards are able to attend the cinema. Well we know it’s all about the money as Daniel has made clear.)
So the technological gadgets are actually old fashioned believe it or not. (The pace of technology advancements is rapid as we know and it’s at least 2-3 years that’s elapsed since this film was made.) For example, I hear James is issued with a Sony Walkman cassette player, and a car where a buzzer sounds if the driver hasn’t put on their seatbelt. He’s also issued a George Foreman grill which has a timer on it. But it’s not a grill it’s a bomb that James will plant so he can blow up the henchman’s island (once their pussy-cats have been taken out of harms way of course - wouldn’t want to upset the cat lovers).
And that is key to the final scene where the timer is actually set and is ticking down. We were still trying to get out of the EU when the movie was made. So the final scene is actually James arming the George Foreman grill bomb at the residence of the henchman Michelle Barnier. In a life or death struggle between Michelle and James the grill timer is ticking down and James knows he needs to get out of there before he is blown up. Thankfully he observes that the timer is faulty because amidst the life/death struggle with Barnier, he looks at the timer every 30 seconds or so, and realises the timer has only gone down by about 5 seconds. It’s like the fight is in some parallel time zone where time is in suspended animation.
Anyway, to our huge relief, James finally tears himself away from Barnier and his EU army foot soldiers. Barnier’s final and fateful words are heard just before his island is blown sky high. His final words were tragic and yet so accurate and poignant………. ‘The clock is ticking’. 😩
So there you are. No need to bother going to this dross. My post is not so much a plot-spoiler as a plot reminder if one was needed. A reminder that there is no plot. Yet rather there’s the same old same old formulaic dross churned out for the mass brain dead to lap up to fill the coffers of this franchise and all it’s millionaires. I’d rather slit my wrists.
Don’t sit on the fence malced do you like bond films or not?
anyway DC was in some great films & a series I can’t remember the name of before bond but that’s him typecast now so I can’t see him doing as well in future think the series he was in was called our friends in the north or something like that? It was really good
