James bond sucks

  1. Nov 14, 2008 #1
    Dont watch it. It was horrible. I mean HOR-RI-BLE.

    This bad guy is trying to steal all the water in bolivia. Yep, that's the plot. It's that stupid. He just wants to steal some water and sell it back for profit. Plus there is random action (I mean random) and characters just come in leaving me asking who the hell is that?

    Oh, and he has a cell phone that he uses to take pictures of peoples faces 500 feet away with 'super magic zoom that stabilizes itself perfectly'. It's total BS.

    That was the only 'gadget' the whole movie. No montepenny. No Q. No funny lines.

    I haven't seen the recent one, and I don't plan to. That's because I've never seen a Bond movie I like, so I stopped going a long, long time ago. It's just not my thing.

    But I think I'm the only person on Earth who doesn't like Bond movies in general.

    I love James Bond! I plan to see the newest one. :biggrin:

    Don't waste your money. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    He drives to a random airport in the middle of the desert where there is some spanish local (the only guy around by the way) and asks to borrow his airplane (an old DC-3). So he leaves his range rover behind as a down payment and promises to pay him when he gets back. So he just flies away in this old junker airplane.

    At least the old bond jumped out of one airplane and into another airplane and pulled up before crashing into a mountain. Yes, that was BS but it was something bond would do. This was like watching a really bad bourne movie.

    The bad guy isnt stealing a nuclear submarine, or building a fancy space station from rio brasil or trying to rob all the gold in fort knox. He's just stealing natural resources (water) and making the government buy its own water back for profit. Wooooooooooooooo........

    Thanks Cy, you just ruined it for me. Well, yeah, looks like I'm not going to watch it now. The best James Bond, I thought was either...Pierce Brosnan or Sean Connery.

    Thats the thing. You will sit there watching the movie going ..............huh? The whole time. Trust me. You'll understand when you see it. Its either..............huh? or ...................okay......

    Casino Royale was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than this piece of crap. And I didn't like Casino Royale that much.

    Its a really bad bourne movie. That's the only way I can describe it.

    TRUST ME. Watch it bootleg online for free. SAVE YOUR MONEY!

    Casino Royale was the one where he must defeat the bad guy at any price but they can only afford $10M stake. What's that, the paint job on a fighter?

    Goldeneye was the last good bond, proper bad guy, proper lair, proper car chase and gadets.

    The movie has some merit as a self-contained original movie if the expectations of Connery and Brosnan are removed.

    Absolutely. Although, I didn't think Casino Royal was all that bad but it certainly wasn't no Golden eye.

    Aside from Sean Connery's 007's, there was only one other good one, Goldeneye. Casino Royale was ridiculous, I'm sorry, but I just can't stand James Bond being a blondie. It also reminds me of Roger Moore who COMPLETELY sucked.

    Casino Royale was like a ninety minute commercial for The Poker Channel.

    Despite the fact I didn't like it, though, I do like Daniel Craig. The character he plays seems more realistically like what that sort of guy would be. Less debonair gentleman, more cut your balls off.

    I stopped after, Pierce Brosnan stopped being 007.

    I find it odd that James bond now has blond hair...something odd about that.

    Casino Royale was the best Bond of the last 30 years. Come on, all the Bonds with Brosnan and the Bonds in the 80s were cheesey as all hell.
  15. Nov 15, 2008 #14
    Oh, wait till you see this stinker.

    Casino Royale was.................ehhhhhh......

    It's been pretty much downhill since Dr. No. I will watch this one but with no expectations of entertainment. My daughter works at the megaplex so we get a discount.

    Snyder, Jimmy Snyder. I have a license to drive.

    In the best Bond movies Roger was James. Those had good evil plans, the best theme (A view to a kill) and the best imaginary gadgets like (VLR) visible laser rifle. In addition there was the best humor which is really important because it shows Bonds superiority to his adversaries.

    I went to see the new Bond film last week and I thought it was pretty good. I mean, not as good as Casino Royale, but it was still entertaining.

    I have seen Casino this week. Zero. Absolute Zero. Are you telling me there is something below absolute zero? That's crackpottery and we don't like it at PF.

    It wasn't Bond movie at all.

    The director tried hard to break with the stereotypes of the previous 007 films (no - Martinis, shaken not stirred; no - the name's Bond; James Bond and no bevy of beautiful women falling into bed with the hero; no sardonic humour and no sci fi gadgetry.

    The director succeeded beyond his wildest dreams to the extent the only thing this film has in common with the Bond franchise is the agent's name happens to be Bond although film goers would be excused for thinking it was Bourne :rolleyes:
