Saw No Time To Die (Bond) new trailer. And while my heart rate went up upon seeing both Ana de Armas and Lea Seydoux in one movie, the rest seemed very blockbuster-y, in continuation of the style of the previous movies. Too many explosions, impossible action sequences and whatnot. I'm guessing it will also lack any real substance, with some intertextuality and generic blockbuster music. If you weren't able to guess from my tone, I'm really not optimistic about it.
Should Bond die? On the one hand, I don't think it's gonna get any better than Casino Royale. But then again, some of the movies were just like that even before, almost completely unwatchable. There were only a few that stood out above the rest. The new ones are at least watchable, even if they are passable. Let's just hope the new actor who'll play Bond will freshen up the franchise as Daniel Craig did when he was first cast.
Well, duh, its Hollywood after all
