The name is Geek, Lee Geek

I’m sitting in the Habit burger joint after seeing the first showing of the new Bond film. I am order #007…how’s that for fate?

I don’t see why the critics have been so hard on this movie…I liked it. I just wish there was more of the Bond theme and less frenetic cutting of the action sequences.

  1. My first reaction today to QoS was “Where’s the Intro?” Movie was okay, I’ll give it an 8.5; I can see where they’re going, but they’re not there yet.
    THEN at the end of the movie, there was the Marching White Dot, the Gunbarrel, and the Music… Perhaps a sign that Daniel Craig # 3 will be “Back to Bond”….

  2. I have not seen this film yet (I will probably wait for dvd) but I, too, do not care for the current trend of fast action cutaways. Watching “Transformers” gave me a headache with that 20+ min. city fight sequence with a constantly moving/spinning camera. I guess this is a sign of getting old.

  3. I’m only commenting to say that I agree 100% with the author. I went to see this on opening night with two friends and they both complained afterwards. I thought it was a good film with some nice touches of humour. But there is no excuse for only using the Bond theme right at the end, again! Anyway, I only came on this site to find some tips on writing as a career so I can quit my dismal job. Thanks!

  4. Wow, people aren’t liking QoS? I thought it rocked! I typically hate the fast-edits. Transformers was awful! But they were done pretty well in this film. I did get the feeling that this was perhaps a transition piece, and the next one will be Bond-tastic.
    I have to admit that Daniel Craig is my favorite Bond, though. He’s got the badass pimp part down pat. I also like it that he’s very physical, in the fight/chase sequences. I also like the ‘less-is-more’ gadget approach to the new films, and I like that the product placement is much less in your face. The Brosnan Bonds were AWFUL for that.
    I have to admit that I was massively angry that the AMC I went to did not show the Watchmen trailer as they were supposed to, and that the new Star Trek trailer did not make my happy. But I loved the Bond film itself. I did a big ranty post on my blog about that.
