I always liked Timothy Dalton’s Bond era

 

There's a bit of overlap with the Moore era, like Robert Brown as M, and General Gogol showing up at the end. TLD still feels like a Moore film, but LTK was made specially for Dalton.

Didn't he do that, in QOS?


It bears a certain similarity, yes. 

 

As one QOS review put it about the bit where Bond is grasping the other dude's wrist to confirm his pulse is fading ... 'We're a long way from Octopussy' :lol: .

I dislike Sam Smith's voice, but the song itself grew on me as a composition.  As a longtime White Stripes fan it pains me to say, but Jack White's Quantum song is probably the worst in franchise history.

It's thrillingly John Barryesque ... until Smith opens his mouth. After that, it's pretty much what you'd expect from a young, sensitive gay man attempting to convey in song the perspective of a veteran 'tough cookie' Secret Service operative of avowedly heterosexual tastes.
