First, a quick plea--let's try to be as spoiler-free in our comments here as possible for a week or so. Not everyone is as twisted as me and connived a vacation day, a shift trade, a favor and some luck to get get a 4-day weekend to watch Bond...
Less than half an hour after first viewing, head still swimming. Random thoughts:
**Marc Forster is no Martin Campbell.
**I managed to stay virgin on the theme song until tonight...completely unmemorable after one listen...seriously, can't remember a thing about it, which is depressing coming from Jack Black
**Good, but no Casino Royale (2006). I'm in like with it at this point, not in love with it
**Brutal, cynical, nasty.
**See, this is why they shouldn't have been changing Leiter's every goddamned movie...see what a little continuity in the role will get you?
**The shortest Bond film ever...and it follows the longest...rumors of lots of cuts, gotta see the DVD now...
**Revealed in the credits: of course that was her name...
Still wired. Must try to sleep, digest, see more tomorrow.
