Favorite Edit of the Year (FEOTY) 2020 Awards are here.
Well I watched it. Not sure how I feel about it. My first thoughts are that I don't know if I want to add this to the series.
They killed Bond?!?! It's honestly the most realistic thing any James Bond movie has done. Not sure this was the way to do it though.
I wasn't a fan of the story. I wasn't a fan of the villain. I wasn't a fan of the dialogue. I just wasnt' a fan. Zimmer thankfully held back, but I think this movie would have done better with Thomas Newman completing the circuit. The score isn't bad, it's just not very memorable. It's the least Zimmer score I've heard. The charcters also feel very inconsistent with the tone of the other 4 movies. There's a lightness to the dramatics that is new and the movie itself wants to go epic in scale, but ultimately this just feels small. This movie needed a vilain that wasn't a concept.
As I'm gearing up for a v2 of this series using my Blu Rays as the new source vs the iTunes for the original release, I'd like to ask from those who have watched the edit. What are some areas that might need improving from a technical side and also sprinkle in a wishlist or two of what you're hoping for. @CAL0901 also generously offered to do some subtitles to help with understadning the dialogue better. At the moment I think the only real plans I had for changes will come during 007 - Concomitant Factor to move the intro credits back a bit. It would show M getting the message from Silva, then Money Penny shows up at Jame's hotel. She shaves him and then after she says, "old dog, new tricks" it will go to the credits. This allows for the big entrance of James Bond to the casino directly after the episode title. I thought that would make for a better and more dramatic transition on both ends.
If you have any technical concerns and or wishes for v2 please post them and I'll start planning out the next steps. Oh and yes, No Time To Die will be included in v2. I figure by the time that I get to that point in the re-editing, the price may have gone down a bit
