    Remember that time James Bond's balls got thwacked under a chair?

    That's all I remember about that movie.

    There's also the poker scene where he wins with a straight flush

    The whiplash from just seeing Ana De Armas and Daniel Craig in Knives Out to that trailer is really something.

    I loved Casino Royale! My favourite Bond by far.

    That NTTD trailer made me realize I didn't watch Spectre.

    It looks like they are going gadgets and sci-fi villain in this one, so that will be fun.

    So normal machine guns weren't enough for modern Bond anymore? How many old Astons had he put in storage anyway?

    Well the original one got blown up in Skyfall so, two?

    Yeah, even if it weren't for having followed all the behind the scenes messes involving this Bond film from the beginning, I just don't have serious interest in something like this after literally just seeing them in something that was so much fun

    I don't even want to watch the one Craig Bond film I actually liked now because I'd rather see him be silly and have fun in a Southern accent trying to solve a murder mystery! Give me a link at the end of the trailer telling me I can preorder the Knives Out DVD+BluRay combo pack now and that would get my attention

    I am also down for infinitely more Benoit Blanc but have zero problems with Craig and Armas doing Bond/more serious roles afterwards

    That's...what actors do!

    The biggest thing is Craig pretty much hates being bond and hates the character and it comes through in his performance

    I like him doing shit he likes, like having a very goofy southern accent in multiple movies

    I think I found Spectre so bad that I could just put the whole series on ice for a decade or two.

    I'm only interested in another Bond movie if they do something completely different

    But then it's not really a Bond movie.

    So I guess I'm just done with Bond for now.

    I mean this one, per leaks seemingly confirmed by the trailer
    has Lashana Lynch as 007 and is meant to set her up as the lead going forward

    That's cool but I'm sure it's still going to be a Bond movie

    I think I'm just bored of the concept at this point.

    Watching Black Panther today. I can't decide what I think about this film. The costumes look great, it's funny, there's some good characters. But overall it doesn't really do much for me. It's too cartoony a lot of the time, everything in Wakanda looks so fake. M'baku's pretty good though. Even if his entire tribe is dudes and that confuses me a bit.

    It's severely overhyped IMO because of its villain. But that villain kills off another good villain. That CGI end battle was 2008 Iron Man level. It coasts by on its other merits.

    in other opinions, black panther is great and good and has great characters, allows those characters to thrive and have fun, and has good action setpieces like the casino/chase

    people complain about the final battle but the only thing that's truly bad about it is the two suits fighting. Everything else is fun and good.

    I like the casino bit.

    I think the final battle suffers from the same problems all big MCU battles suffer from, which is everything feels weightless and overly choreographed, and I generally don't care because I know the good guys are going to win. I like the big fight at the end of Avengers just because it felt novel to see all these different characters together but every one since then has left me cold.

    The suits fighting at the end is embarrassing, but every other action beat in Black Panther is top tier, just like everything else about that movie

    Black Panther is the best of a bad franchise because it sidesteps a lot of that franchises problems (Bad villain, non-diverse cast) but it still suffers from the "jesus these action scenes suck" issue that all marvel movies suffer

    It's also weird because one of my biggest problems with most big MCU end fights is that the good guys are fighting an anonymous horde of aliens or robots or whatever. Black Panther it's all actual people I kind of like so I should care more but I don't.

    As for Black Panther, the waterfall fights were fine

    I think people are stretching when they call the casino fight and the five hour incredibly boring chase sequence that follows good, and I know the two suits fighting at the end is the worst part but I feel like people are forgetting the fucking CG Rhinos

    The entire back third of the movie is a steaming pile that very nearly undid all of my positive feelings up to that point

    Uh the rhinos rule, and I’m not stretching when I call the casino and car chase good.

    The rhinos is the movie saying “Yeah this is a comic book movie, we Don’t Give a Fuck”, and I’m here for that.

    The suits fighting is bad and looks bad, there’s nothing to be done about it. But the rhinos are good.

    Like I’m not being ironic here, unleashing battle rhinos got a cheer from my audience and I was cackling my ass off. They’re Good.

    Shield cloaks are cool. I just wish they had the wakandan army not just march up and then storm into the enemies everytime they're shown like they're auditioning for Gladiator. But that's more the Avenger movies.
