    I said since the Timothy Dalton years - before his years, there were quite a few memorable Bond title tracks - all of Shirley Bassey's songs were terrific

    I will hold "writing's on the wall" over "let the skyfall"and that's mostly because of the wonderful opening title credits. The way it's been conceptualised with Bond in flames and all the main characters of the last four films coming in really made the difference. As a standalone probably the latter. But I got to hear both only through the opening credits. So hence my opinion...Spectre was good except that I wished they had used Waltz a little better. Silva towers over Blofeld in my opinion...

    Yes, the title credit of Spectre is intelligent, that hits from time to time with certain visuals in the film. Moreover, its all about Spectre and its child organisations, which are beautifully assembled during the Title card.

    Coming to Bond girls, there is another titbit in Spectre about 'Bond beds Women'. Lucia Sciarra & Madeleine Swann are 2 different females, in age as well as looks. And the best part is when Blofled gives a clue how much younger Miss Swann is compared to them (include Bond), when he says she was a little girl when he visited her father. These details in Spectre were far most the best expressed in the Bond series.

    Spectre is witty too, even in melodramatic suituations. Addressing Money Penny after watching Ex-M's instructions, Bond says "She works even after her death".

    Also the scene at L'Americain is somber : "Who sent you? Who are you working for?". Everyone were laughing, I was like wanting to hug Bond.

    And Q gets the ultimate lines : "I asked you to bring it back in one piece, not just one piece"

    There is another funny moment when the Aston gets reserved for 009, and Q offers Bond just a watch -

    Bond: What can it do?
    Q: It tells the time.


    Tiny light moments are floated all over the movie.

    And about Blofled : When it comes to the character, Blofled got a sufficient runtime as Bond's nemesis. Neatly packed, enlarging the mystery within a mystery. But when it comes to Waltz who plays Blofled, I am in total agreement with you. Raises another question : For Fan's sake if Waltz got more footage, would it not take the charm out of the Bond Film ? I thought, "I am a visionary", summarises most of it about Blofled.

    (And "Hello Pussy" was an excellent touch ... LoL)

    Vedhalam - A very unintelligent movie filled with clichés and hero worship. A movie apt for Siva but not for Ajith. The innocent act and the transformation does not work at all especially when the transformed act does not resemble the flashback Ajith one bit.
    It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
    - Robert H. Goddard

    Folks,

    Kind request.... Why don't you post TV/VD reviews in the "Respective" threads?

    They do it, in order to avoid giving -ve reviews in the respective threads. You know how the fans will react!
    This is a very big world!

    I know, but they should be able to handle "Constructive" criticism as well
