I did use spoilers, thankyouverymuch. Allan on the otherhand didn't (originally), so perhaps you should have directed your post at him.

I used spoiler tags in my original post, hence why my post doesn't show as edited. Your post on the other hand...

Nope, still directed at you Shingster. & most of your post is still unspoilered & about Knives Out.

Wouldn't it have been better to just put something like,

Re: Knives Out


?




Anyhoo, back to Bond...

Ah the dvdforums spoiler nazis pile on again. I would love for you to explain how anything left outside of spoiler tags in my post reveals any form of actual plot detail.

When did this purposefully subverting peoples expectations become a thing?

It seems a cheap trick to market a film one way so that when people go to see they get a surprise; but can it last if more filmmakers use it?

to be honest I wouldn't have written most of what you wrote outside of spoiler tags hence why I included mine entirely in spoiler tags.

Sorry I thought your post was originally unspoilered for some reason!

I'm sure you would, and that's great, but it's probably because you're playing it safe after being routinely exposed to prior overly sensitive whining about spoilers by the members of this forum who seem to think the spoiler tags exist not to cover up any spoiler details about a film, but to cover up any details at all about a film.

Spoilers are a specific type of detail and nothing in my original post that is outside of spoiler tags reveals any important plot details. Stating that Knives Out has political undertones is no more revealing than stating that it is a comedy-drama, it's no more revealing than pointing out that No Time to Die will most likely feature some progressive gender politics for a Bond film. You've gleaned absolutely nothing about how Knives Out plays out. It is in no way an important plot detail, which is what a spoiler is.

This forum is the absolute worst place I have ever seen for complaints about any kind of plot detail of films unrelated to the thread topic. Newsflash people, you're currently browsing a film discussion forum, you are occasionally going to be exposed to information about other films in threads like this. It is not the responsibility of the members here to self-censor themselves of any minute plot detail because people here have got a chip on their shoulder about even the slightest potential spoiler. If you're that sensitive, censor yourself and find somewhere else to browse until you've seen the film you're so desperate to avoid any plot details of.

Shingster,

1. Calm down.
2. No, I'm browsing a No Time To Die thread. It's perfectly natural to not expect any spoilers/discussion of Knives Out in here. If you want to discuss that film, start a thread on it. It's just common courtesy.

& for the record, it wasn't you mentioning the political undertones in Knives Out that was the problem, it was you talking about a specific actor. Is it a spoiler? I've no idea, because I haven't seen it yet.

Yeh it only seems to happen on certain things, not sure what the rules actually are. But people seem to think everything after a film is released should be spoilered, which does beg the question why they're in the thread in the first place.

But yeh if you're gonna say "wow when Bond was killed, omg!" probably stick it in spoiler tags

Trailer looks quite good, but I feel like they've shown too much already. I'll get caught up in nostalgia, see it in the cinema and probably enjoy it but not sure how much of a lasting impression it will leave.

I know its almost become a cliche, but I find the first three Bourne movies to be much more rewatchable than any of Craig's Bond movies and the last Mission Impossible raised the bar for this sort of movie even higher.

I'd still like to have seen what Danny Boyle had in mind.

I still think Casino Royale is a great movie, possibly because its based on some decent source material (and actually follows the book fairly closely), seems to be they struggle more when they're just making them up. But nothing else came close, Skyfall I quite enjoyed. Not sure what the average for a Bond is in a good/bad ratio. Did Connery make many bad ones? I don't recall or I've forgotten them. Most of the Pierce Brosnan ones were pretty forgettable.

Hate to say, but the model now seems to be to start with a decent one then just live off it, then reboot and repeat.

Both Craig and brosnan did perfect 1st films but then every film after was basically ****, which was a real shame.

Never saw any of Craig's Bonds at the Cinema did see all of Brosnan's on the big screen.

Bourne is more closer to Bond than Mission Impossible and the first three have a definite rewatch factor unlike Legacy and the 4th one It would have been nice to see Bond go after Bourne and Treadstone you would have though that MI6 and the Govt would have been quite ****** at some of Treadstone's antics on UK soil

OK I revealed that Ana de Armas is in the film... just what possible bleedin' plot detail have you invented in your completely ignorant (seeing as you've not seen the film) mind that this reveals exactly? She's right there in the poster with the rest of the cast, did you complain at your local cinema when you last watched a film because they displayed the Knives Out poster somewhere where you could glance upon it and ergo be spoiled?

There are not enough and smilies to respond to such nonsense!

Could you put this in spoiler tags please Spaceranger, this is a thread for a James Bond film and I fear aprout might have a nervous breakdown if he gets "spoilers" for two other film franchises in the same post!

To say Graham Chapman is in Monty Python's Life of Brian is not a spoiler to reveal that Brian is
would be a spoiler

Had Shingster revealed Gary Glitter was in knives Out I would have been grateful; as not to waste my money on going to set it

When you talk about a murder mystery & highlight a particular actor, naturally one's mind starts to go to certain places about the solution of said mystery. That's the problem. But hey, feel free to have another rant.

I felt the same. Having not seen the film it did seem worryingly like a spoiler and I wasn't expecting to see it in a thread about the new Bond film. I am glad that it is not a spoiler though. I'm not sure quite what you said that required such an unfriendly response though.
