Bond 23, direct sequel to Quantum of Solace. Released October 26th 2012.
On October 3rd I first heard a leaked preview of Adele's title song, apparently due for release on the 5th. Thought it sounded pretty decent, then listened to it many times before watching the film.
First watch (30th October 2012)Edit
Cinema in IMAX with Mum, Sarah, and Sean.
Watched it on Tuesday the 30th of October with Mum, Sarah, and Sean, a few days after it came out. Very disappointed :/ I was totally bewildered the whole time watching it, and I think the problem is that Sam Mendes (with his favourite score composer Thomas Newman), who has directed some excellent films, came along and totally failed to understand what Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace were trying to do. Either that or I did.
Anyway, I hated the constant in-your-face references to old Bond films, I hated the weird annoying battle between 'old' and 'new' ways, I hated the way M was portrayed in this one, I hated the blatant plot-copying of The Dark Knight, I hated the Scotland setting of the second half, I hated a lot of it. Took me 3 days to get over it before I could write this wiki update.
