cinema of joy enjoyer
The Bond/ Moneypenny chemistry ain’t quite the same!
That stupid unnecessary meta line (“This never happened to the other fellow”) lost me on this immediately. Truly prompted a ‘why should I care’ mentality that I couldn’t shake throughout, despite trying my best to enjoy the elevated filmmaking.
Perfect cold open, LUXURIOUS titles. Overall, a drastically richer text than the previous two. The way they shoot action has come so far - both the hand-to-hand combat and car chases feel super dynamic.
I was still mostly bored to tears by the second and third acts. Long stretches of nothing broken up with occasional fun.
Iconic Bond girl name from this movie? Forget Pussy Galore, a chick he’s with for one scene in the beginning is straight up called ‘Dink’.
