    17. How come Safin, a guy who up to that point had 2 or 3 guards around him decided to come back to tackle Bond alone. Are we to think Bond had literally killed ALL his henchmen and Safin hadn't kept anyone with him? It didn't really make sense to me.

    I understood that Safin already knew he lost and was just trying to make Bond suffer for it.

    Same interrogation here... He let the daughter in the Corridor and still have men with him, and then what... Wait for bond alone?

    Safin's motivation after Blofeld dies aren't clear.

    Are we meant to recognise the SPECTRE agents at the party in Cuba?

    The camera moves across several specific faces and I wasn’t sure if they were from past Craig movies…

    I recognised 2 of them, the guy kissing the woman on the hand, and the older woman, both of which have dialoguie in SP. It would have helped if the SP agents had more development in the previous film for the sake of this scene, but this scene was still awesome IMO

    Maybe, but if they were "Spectre's poisoners" then Spectre already had the island... I'm guessing Safin and his family were more of an independent organisation who did a few jobs for Spectre

    Does anyone know which scenes were filmed at the Faroe Islands?

    I've been thinking of the "it's all connected" story in SP and NTTD. Is it connected with ... I ?mean, is it influenced by the times we live in? "It's all connected" could be the slogan of many conspiracy theories and theorists. Today conspiracy theories have more impact on the world than perhaps ever before. Am I on to something or an I imagining a conspiracy that's not real? 😂

    Joking aside, I wonder if the conspiracy theory mindset where the moon landings, 9/11, Greta Thunberg and Covid are all connected. The phsycological need to see patterns and planning because it weirdly makes some people feel safer, has that mindset taken hold of society and the Bond movies? Or is it simply because of the Marvel movies? 🤣

    At least MGW‘s cameo was easy to spot this time…

    The name is Walker by the way.

    Wow - this is actually a decent question 😱☺️

    It’s a decent question because it’s the same question I had 🤣

    Safin appears to be the same age throughout the whole film 🤔

    I have a question.

    What was the relevance of Matilde complaining of mosquito bites when they were in the car fleeing Madeleines home?

    It seemed odd to me that it was mentioned but didn’t go anywhere.

    I was expecting this to be a prelude to Mathilde becoming sick but that wasn’t the case.

    Any thoughts?

  • JarvioJarvio EnglandPosts: 4,232MI6 Agent

    A few more questions to drop in -

    • Safin mentioned his father. Do you think his father was Dr No? Or just nothing significant?
    • What did Madeline write on the note that she burned?
    • On the database with all the SPECTRE agent's names, did anyone spot any significant names / homages? I didn't spot any, but just wondering if they hid any in there like past SPECTRE agents from past films as homages

    If I remember right she wrote “l'enfant masque” which I thought was in reference to the PTS and Safin attacking her home with the mask

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,991Chief of Staff

    I think it was "L'homme masque", the masked man.

    I thought one of the Spectre agents looked like or was Idris Elba as a cheeky nod. But as no one else has mentioned anywhere else online, just my imagination.

    But I didn't imagine Hugh bloody Dennis being there ( UK comedian and panel show captain)

  • chrisno1chrisno1 LondonPosts: 1,506MI6 Agent

    I thought it read L'HOMME MASQUE - the masked man

    Yep I thought there was some sinister connotation yet to come re that but nothing evident

    Were there mosquitos in the tea that Safin wants Madeline to drink? Just a guess might be wrong

    But madeline did not seem to be over concerned re the mosquitoes. I wouldn't think they are common place in Norway!?

    So one SPECTRE agent I did spot standing behind Bond when they surround him, I thought was Fukutu (actor Tom So) from CR…because of his long grey hair.

    But it out turns on IMDB the actor in NTTD is Clem So (Tom’s brother), and Clem also appeared in Skyfall (casino scene) and Spectre (Rome meeting)!


  • chrisno1chrisno1 LondonPosts: 1,506MI6 Agent

    Maybe the mosquito line was erroneously left in when Purvis and Wade decided to include snaps shots of Raymond Benson's The Man With The Red Tattoo. Maybe Heracles was originally supposed to be spread by rabid mossies. Who knows? Yes, I too thought it a very odd line - it could have been edited out and made the movie twenty seconds shorter. Hurrah!

  • A7ceA7ce Birmingham, EnglandPosts: 652MI6 Agent

    When M said 'Where's 007?' and not asking for Bond by name, was I thought where Nomi would walk into his office and everyone lose their mind . Ie the big reveal. But instead it cut to Dan on a yacht I think. So correlating 007 with Bond even though he is 5 years retired.

    And what crap banter was that about have your code back, if she's 007 well that's it end of story. Why give it back for an afternoon. There's a job to be done, doesn't matter what u call each other.

    He used Bonds toothbrush in the birthday party scene where the scientist switched the usb AGAINST spectre

    Hey Lexi,


    good to see you here again!

    How did you like the movie?


    As for the programming - I get it how he got Bond‘s DNA and I get how the nanobots have been planted into Bond‘s body. My question was, how could he programme the nanobots against Madeleine‘s DNA ( which he gathered from her hair sample)?

    In the north of the country mosquitos are extremely common in the summer, but Madeleine's cabin was in the south. The drive was in a foggy and damp forrest and you can get plenty of mosquitos under those conditions.
