Ben Affleck and Micheal Keaton are also returning as Batman in new Flash film, alternative timeline shenanigans probably.

don't like the fact they keep on making the bad guy facially disfigured. Stop with that shit - seriously its not fair on real burn victims.

Still not worth a cinema visit.

It looks perfectly... fine, I just struggle to summon much enthusiasm for Bond films these days. Of the four new Bond films, only two have been particularly good (although Skyfall remains my favourite of the entire franchise, which I suppose is something). There just doesn't seem to be much I can see them doing with the character after, what, 24 or 25 films? It's just set pieces now, which are often undeniably impressive, but not much of a draw.

I like bits of the newer films but apart from Casino Royale I've not been overly impressed. I think they need to let someone like Tarantino do one for the hell of it. Make it during different eras like WW2 or the 70's, be camp, dark as fuck or ridiculously OTT. Not the same old shit of villian X is going to launch Y weapon on Z city but it's actually a computer virus or some such pish.

Fuck it, make it like Archer.

I still think that Craig's Casino Royale is the best Bond movie they ever made. It cast the whole franchise in a new light and dared to take it places that it hadn't really touched before. I think it was criticised at the time for not being "Bond" enough though and since then they've increasingly moved more to the old feel, subsequently losing what made Craig's portrayal interesting.

I'm cautiously optimistic. I think it's a very difficult book to adapt well (though I very much liked the Lynch film for trying) but I'm on-board with 90% of the choices they've made that we've seen so far at least.

He did a fantastic job with Blade Runner 2047 too.

Looks like it'll be good.

Can't see anything opening in cinemas before next year the way things are going, they might as well shut down at this point. :(
