  1. A film where they shut down the spy program and merge it with another intelligence organization? And it’s led by an asshole who doesn’t respect the main character and tries to capture him as he’s shutting down a secret organization that no one else believes exists? I already saw that movie this summer and I liked it better when it was Mission Impossible. Even the main Bond girl was from the main henchwoman from Ghost Protocol. And at least they let Tom Cruise have his gadgets and fun instead of an arthouse backstory that goes nowhere.

    It’s funny JL Cauvin brought up Dr. Evil because he was literally a parody of the original Blofeld from the 60s Bond films which were notoriously cheesy. And instead of realizing how cliche it was and remaking him, they just hung their hat on how “cool” it would be to see him again the way Lindeloff tried to hide Benedict Cumberbatch being Khan. The reveal didn’t work either time, but luckily for Star Trek they had JJ Abrams to make it good.

    The only people who would care are long time Bond fans and we all knew he was before the movie started. Nobody cared about that pointless adoption story and they could have just cut that whole half hour out of the movie.

    I was so much more invested in Bautista’s character even though he didn’t talk for the whole damn movie then trying to shoehorn Christoph Waltz who did nothing. But great job reviewing it, had more fun listening to you and JL than watching the movie.
