    Trailer makes it looks like storylines continue from previous Daniel Craig 007 films. Is it worth rewatching the 1st 4 first? Or at least the one with Rami Malik in it?

    I used to think that Bond films were best seen at the cinema for the full 'big screen' experience.

    Unfortunately my last trip to see Spectre in 2015 was my last cinema experience and I will not be going back to a cinema again as the whole experience was so absolutely awful. I was smashed in the back of the head by some late-arriving woman who obviously needed to carry some form of anvil in her handbag when going to the cinema. No apology, and I was left feeling partially concussed.

    After that lovely start, I could barely hear what was going on due to some numpty noisily eating crisps and talking guff for the entire duration of the film. I have no idea how big the bag of crisps must have been to last that long, or why people chose to go to the cinema to have a conversation which would be better carried out across a pub table, but the cinema is an experience I could do without nowadays.

    Shame, as I do like a bond film.
    Glad to hear positive reports that the new one sounds half decent.

    The current Bond series lost me at the utterly dreadful Skyfall that ended up making you feel like you were watching Home Alone. Even the Adele theme song wound me up.

    I hope this marks a complete change in direction and feel to the movies, otherwise we just end up like Dr Who scenario of Bond regenerating into different human form but doing the same old stuff. Maybe set the series back in the 1950s/1960.

    Also hope they get Christopher Nolan to direct the next one.

    No time to die - no spoilers

    My eldest son went with his mates to a midnight screening (I was invited but declined - itís a school day after all!) - he appeared at lunchtime today and I asked what the film was like. He fell sound asleep about half an hour in! - lucky our local flea pit only charges £6 a ticket!
    No doubt Iíll see it over the next few days but - much as I like Craig as Bond - Iíve not watched any of his movies more than the once and tbh canít really remember the last couple apart from the bit in Scotland with the DB5!

    TBH, if folks are unable to go to see a film, unplug and take it as entertainment/escape without over analysing the content/plot it's probably not worth going IMO.

    Whilst I have cringed at a few films, I rarely take exception.

    Looking forward to seeing this one.

    Think Daniel Craig is an excellent Bond, perhaps the best. I always thought Bond should look like he could kill you with extreme prejudice, and Craig captures that look for me.

    I agree Craig looks like that. However I personally think Connery also did that, and had a cruel look to him, despite his good looks.

    We're off to see it tonight and I can't wait. I'm a huge fan and despite the 'blond Bond' issue early on I thing Daniel Craig has come the closest to portraying the character of Bond from the books. Other than the early Connery films the rest where just too comedic for me (even if I did enjoy them as a child). It's only the writing in the last couple of films (not Flemming) that has let them down in my view. This is a shame as there is still plenty of great stories which have not had an outing in the film franchise......particularly now that it's more gritty.

    I've enjoyed each incarnation of bond for their own idiosyncrasies and quirks, they all brought something unique to the table. I'm in 2 minds as to whether to see this at the flicks. I've not been enthused by the previous Craig outings it's always felt that Casino Royale was mainly done to keep the copyright alive for the film company but was a bigger hit than they expected and so backstory was retconned in to try to make the films tell an overarcing story.
    This was only partially successful for me and with Spectre, the film and the organisation along with the Blofeld character all being criminally wasted it's left a bad taste in my mouth.
    Personally I'm lately of the opinion that Bond was of it's time and that time was last millennium. In today's world of equality and wokeness classic Bond has a dwindling to non existent place, reinventing Bond is totally necessary but unfortunately, for many, myself included this will destroy what makes/made Bond great if it is to appeal to the modern generation, which it must in order to survive.
    I'll probably dip my toe into the water occasionally but I think the days of me champing at the bit to see the latest Bond are over.

    I enjoyed it, but more so because it was the first trip to the cinema in a good while. I do wish the Bond script writers would make the villans more compelling and believable! With such real evil in the world as a reference, I'm not sure why this is so difficult.

    On my way to see it now, well via a restaurant with the Mrs first.
    Really looking forward to it, but also kind of notÖ with it being Craigís final Bond movie.

    Despite being a Scot, in my personal opinion, Craig has been the best Bond yet. Connery after that.

    Superb filmÖwell worth the wait.

    My recommendation is to wring your bladder out before you go to the cinema. Sit through the preamble and trailers & then watch the first 20 minutesÖ.as per usual this is then where the title sequence starts. You now have 5 minutes or so to go for a wee and set yourself up for the rest of the film!

    Well, just back from the cinema. In short, a fitting end to his tenure, although not the best of the Craig bond films (Casino Royale or Skyfall are my 2 personal favourites). Storyline probably a bit weaker than Iíd hoped, or maybe it was the length, I dunnoÖ but still entertaining.
    Weirdly, it might be a better one to watch on the small screen.

    Enjoyable but needs to be trimmed by 20-30 minutes.
    Guess time for Michael B. Jordan now.

    No spoilers? You might want to delete that for those that donít know yet?

    Watched this on Thursday and loved it. Going back tomorrow with mrs Tiny to watch it. I couldnít tell her anything about the film except to say it was great (without spoiling it).

    Did anyone see the after credits bit? I missed it but will watch it this time.

    Iíve not seen it yet, but I think particularly with Bond, the hype carries the film at first and you get overly gushing reviews. Iím in no rush to see it.

    I wasn't expecting much....
    Unfortunately all my fears have come true, left the cinema depressed which is completely wrong for a bond film.
    It didn't feel like bond it felt like a sad depressing copy.

    This is very good advice. Just got back from the cinema and the number of people who kept going out for loo breaks and more snacks really pissed me off. I enjoyed the film but honestly if you canít hold your water for 3 hours and need to eat every 15 mins then perhaps best wait for it to come out on DVD.

    I thought it was great, had everything a James Bond should have. Some of the gunfight scenes were overly long but very spectacular and beautifully filmed.

    Good film

    My first bond film at the cinema and I enjoyed it. My local Vue has upgraded the whole cinema to reclining seats which is nice and I get some discount so all good. £4.50 for 2h40 mins of reclining seat cinema is very good.

    Donít see how thatís a spoiler to be honestÖ not said anything about what happens in the movie and I think even people living under a rock know itís his final film. I even mentioned it in my earlier post before going to see it.
