No Time to Die (roundtable, with spoilers)
Thursday, 23 December 2021
Can I just have one nice evening before the world explodes?
After a disastrous attempt to record a commentary on No Time to Die results in several cinemagoers calling the police, we decide to regroup, get some drinks in, and hold a roundtable discussion of Daniel Craig’s last film in the role. So: when SPECTRE holds a Christmas drinks thing despite Covid restrictions and everyone ends up feeling quite unwell, James Bond, Felix Leiter and 007 (it’s complicated) team up (sort of) to find the renegate scientist responsible. A whole bunch of things happen, and a generation of Bond fans are scarred for life as a result.
Be warned. There will be spoilers.
Here is a link to the #IAmNotYourVillain campaign by Changing Faces UK, which calls on filmmakers to stop using scars and disfigurement as a signifier of villainy.
