Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

Lousy soundtrack imo , only decent music is Bond vs Sean Bean

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

People hate the soundtrack. But its iconic to me. Maybe because I grew up with it. There us just something about it thsy just brings back the memories.

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

Alright, so I'm back in Bondness.

Re-watched this film and an 8/10 this time around.

Sean Bean's performance was my biggest issue, just lacks punch for me.

I may have been too hard on Campbell in the past, accusing him of having a soulless style or something like that.  This is a damn good movie as far as I'm concerned, just not one I'm as crazy about as I used to be.

I also give Pierce a B+ for his performance here.  Not quite great, but quite good.

I think my issue with GE (in summary) is that it lacks in terms of high notes, there's not enough in it that has a wow factor for me, but I think it's a damn good film.

Re: Pros and Cons: Goldeneye

Love this movie, Brosnan opens his account in a really positive, strong manner and he continued to get stronger in his following Bond Movies - 007 out of 10 for effort.

One small minor con in all this was the disappointing use of the BMW Z3 Roadster - When you see it in Q Branch you think, great we’re going to have a strong car chase scene, oh dear, then nothing before it appears only to be whipped off by Jack Wade (or was that Brad Whittaker’s twin?) in exchange for a Cessna.

The score didn't bother me per se on my last viewing, but I'd say it's not one of the stronger ones.  It does the job I suppose.
