so yesterday it was just me, lots of popcorn and Bond. a well-deserved solo treat. :-)
was watching a movie all by myself on the big screen after 3-4 years and it felt good if a bit strange. a sense of freedom from the usual.
was it as good as the old ones? different I'd say...grittier, a bit soppier with the love angle which is eventually doomed and never to return, and definitely more menacing with the new guy. The birth of 007.
I am not going to gush ad nauseam abt the lead actor. He is smouldering...and pretty convincing with the stunts and violence. Looks vulnerable in the right moments. And I stand by my last post. :-)
The sort of ingredients, acute charm + suaveness + comic timing+formulaic bits etc, that the Brosnan flicks had in dollops, are done away with.
Leaner and meaner. and hotter.
