Was worse than that pinky.

I saw it. Liked the suit. Tie might have shrunk in the wash (mysterious backstory for DR).

Cucinelli number.

I'm assuming that, as the theory of the origin of the tie goes, he used his as a receptacle for the sweat from his brow in the undue heat and as a consequence it shrunk.

This is the authenticity and attention to detail Bond films are famous for.

Fantastic opening, and probably the best outfit of the movie. Sad when the best fitting suit is one with a skeleton tie, as others have mentioned likely because Tom Ford doesn't make Dia de los muertos outfits so they could actually get something that fit him.
 
Plot was just plain insulting. Austin Powers type bad guy with no discernible motive and some half assed attempt to tie together all the previous Craig era films. It's all connected guys! The viewer is supposed to take at face value that the events of four films are all due to the comical super bad villainy guy because daddy like James more than him. This guy hates James almost as much as he hates the average cinemagoer, who is supposed to watch in awe as he fucking hits a 3 minute timer on a building demolition to kill James with certainty. Jesus. Surely in this world of political, religious and ideological instability we can come up with a baddy with a believable motive (within the realms of imagination rather than reality).
 
Hey look, let's introduce a strong, beautiful female character. She's different to previous Bond girls because she's independent, can fight, not susceptible to James' charms...except then she is! And she needs saving all the time. And she holds James' hand and says she's scared. And look they've fallen in love within a quarter of the film (admittedly still a fucking long time). Fortunately, it's 2015, and progress means 50 year old chicks can star in shitty cameos where they fall for James after he's killed their husband. About time!
 
Who fucking decided that viewers needed to understand the backstory of everything. What made Bond such a great movie character in the first place is that he is mysterious and that his motives aren't particularly clear. The second shittest movie of 2012 (after the Dark Knight Rises) completely ruined this for everyone and Spectre just continues it.
 
In many films Bond has his cover blown, or at least his reputation proceeds him, but now we are supposed to accept that someone started an entire Illuminati just to ruin his life. Fuck. Me.
 
What am I missing? Some people lap this shit up. Are people just able to forgive all the plot inconsistencies because of style? I can do this to an extent, but it gets to a stage where it's just draining to be treated like shit by the writers and producers as a viewer.
 
As a sidenote, the clothing was just a bit bizarre. Bond doesn't need to be in a suit all the time (indeed he wasn't for much of this movie) but then he's in a suit and tie in the fucking desert? Before he's inexplicably picked up by a 1949 rolls royce silver wraith. How do I know? BECAUSE BOND FUCKING TOLD ME, JESUS WRITERS HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR YOUR AUDIENCE. As JH pointed out, why was his knit tie so short? Like we are meaningless forum ants and this was the first thing I noticed in this scene. There are multiple people on that set responsible for styling, both from a fashion perspective and maintaining Bond's character and they serve us up with this shit? FFS Daniel Craig would spend half his life in suits and even he didn't think to redo the tie?
 
So all in all I thought it was ok.

 

 

I'm nominating DR for the most appropriate use of the Spoiler function.

In some exciting news (I'm being rather generous with the use of "exciting"): next week, the baristas at my local and I are going to settle once and for all, whether they can make a piccolo mocha faster than I can tie a FIH.

 

Yes, this is how things have devolved.

Mocha: An espresso dose of coffee mixed with chocolate powder and served in a cappuccino cup filled with steamed milk and foam, sprinkled with chocolate. Popular with the younger generation or those just getting into coffee.

The Mocha Drinker

These coffee drinkers are overly affectionate, compassionate and insightful. Mocha drinkers are true romantics and chronic flirts. However, despite their constant need to be in love, they can have a difficult time committing to relationships and are generally unreliable

This is frighteningly accurate. Even if piccolo.

 

The usual line up is an espresso first, then a piccolo mocha, and finally a filter to take away. #doyouevencoffeebro

maybe Bond took up the challenge, hence the short tie

Don't patronise Jimmy. He's 73.

Tad tired and emotional today are we DR? Maybe that business lunch went on a bit too long...

I read the New Yorker review (thanks for posting, JH). Utterly hilarious. Ranks with Clive James at his scintillating best.

post #66105 of 67946
Op shop fit today. I was trawling through my room full of op shop finds last night, picked up this one and noticed that it now fits me. So I wore it today. It's Cantarelli SC made of Loro Piana fabric, a blend of cashmere, linen and silk. The shirt is T&A and the pants are Balmain fine wale cords. The whole lot probably cost me $50.
