    I rarely ever play video games, anymore, but it does look very awesome.
    007, my old friend. It's so good to see you around again. Hopefully your hiatus was well, and everything is good IRL. Looking forward to seeing you around the KT.

    There is another aspect of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. that annoyed me: the first two films with Daniel Craig as James Bond completely disregarded any of the aspects that had made the previous films corny and campy. Prior to the reboot with Craig, the films had become overloaded with gadgets, fancy cars, Bond being able to seduce any woman he met, and, worst of all, ridiculous puns and other one-liners. Those elements nearly destroyed the franchise in the past, so it was great when Casino Royale abandoned them, but they returned in the newest film, which was ridiculous, considering that that had happened, before; the first several films with Sean Connery were actually quite serious, so I am wondering why the film producers are repeating the same mistakes that the earlier films made.
    Yes, the connections to the previous films definitely felt forced, and I imagine that the reason that there was no foreshadowing in the previous films is likely because the writers had not planned that far ahead.

    My greatest complain with the film is how easily the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. organization was defeated, that Blofeld's face was shown too early and easily, and that he was captured at the end. In the first film series, S.P.E.C.T.R.E. was around for many films, as a mysterious organization, presented as a major threat to the world, Blofeld's face was not shown for many films, so that, when it was finally shown, it was treated as a significant revelation, and it took many films before Bond finally defeated him and his organization.

    Essentially, this film attempted to compress the entire S.P.E.C.T.R.E. storyline from multiple films into a single film, but the result was less than stellar, since there was not sufficient time for the viewer to be able to perceive S.P.E.C.T.R.E. as a huge threat before it was defeated, thereby lessening the significance of its defeat.
    That is very unfortunate, since I was hoping to discuss it. Are you planning to see it, at some point?
    So, I presume that you have seen the new James Bond film, Spectre? If so, what are your thoughts about it?
    The ghost of Christopher Reeves really needs to be laid to rest and move on. He had his time, and was magnificent during it. But I was pissed as hell when Superman Returns was essentially a gigantic love letter to Richard Donner. No wonder why Singer's efforts bombed.

    MoS has set the standard for visceral and hope inspiring super hero films.

    Dat Soundtrack, as well. :33
    Hahaha, I read some of them. Avengers never had this level of detail orientated and philosophic discussion.

    MoS. A thinking man's superhero curbstomping film.

    :LOS
    Was on a week long conference for work in the US. Got back yesterday. It was a nice break, but nothing beats home.

    MoS was so fucking good. Saw it on opening day.

    May the Sun be with you, Brother Bond. We shall await your return, and glorious comments of your experience. At this point, I say fuck the haters or detractors, I know in my heart I will be leaving the theatre after Midnight on Saturday morning with a huge smile on my face(seeing the 3D showing Friday night at 2230 EST). :brofist

    P.S: Rukia has joined us in the Sun. The impossible has happened. The ultimate troll has shown his solar colours to all of NF. The Marvel threads have shit themselves.

    All is well.

    :gar
    Yes, this was my line of thinking. We must become the kickstarters to initiate new concepts in the Theatre.
