Double digital which for some reason means I don't get gifts.

Have I mentioned that before?

Blimey! Glad to hear you got out relatively unscathed and with such a great outlook.

Bond having a family isn't what the film is about. Furthermore, he is not the character capable for that.

Its almost staggering how off the mark you are.

Yeah, because Bond is about having ************** which is true definition of off the mark, particularly for this film.

It's exactly what this film is about and what the last two were leading up to.  It might not be what you wanted but that's what it is.

I can't believe ON HER MAJESTYS SECRET SERVICE never happened.

I very soon reconciled myself to the idea that the Craig Bonds are there own thing and exist in their own Bond universe compared to the other films. I reckon this was their go at OHMSS

Well the bit you've spoilered is just the actual theme but there you go. Other people don't be tempted to unspoiler that.

And I thought the villain was the worst aspect.

I did say it had everything you expect from Bond and that includes terrible one liners and often terrible villains.

Mrs Gunderson.

I always think Dame Judi Stench after an awkward moment where someone farted, someone else said "That's a bit of a Dame Judi" and someone else, who didn't understand how rhyming slang works helpfully added "You mean Dame Judi Stench!"

Well that was jolly good fun.

Everything you expect from Bond and plenty you don't. But the unusual stuff is delivered well.

It actually makes SPECTRE better (all the terrible bits of Spectre are still terrible though)

Also chock full of Easter Eggs to previous Bonds if you like that kind of thing.

Try catch it before the big reveals get spoilt by twats.

Similarly our Grandson (2 and a half) has taken to THE INCREDIBLES recently. Nearly two hours long and about a man's midlife crisis... But compelling storytelling is compelling storytelling.

A bit of a sausage party (the only women are mothers and whores) but cracking performances from Russell Crowe, Christian Bale (these two doing the opposite of each other) and Ben Foster deliver a pretty satisfying western.

Mangold is doing Indy 5 so after this and Logan, I'm expecting good things.

Helena Bonham Carter would have made a crap Lois Lane.

ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING (via Starz on Disney) is jolly good even if it is mainly sustained by a trio of fabulous central characters and performances. It's been a while since Steve Martin was this good. Worth seeking out.

In contrast, the Beebs much vaunted submarine murder mystery VIGIL is not. When it focuses on it's USP i.e. the claustrophobic nature of the sub and the higher stakes, it fares ok.  But the actual investigation is being headed by two unlikeable leads with a completely unbelievable relationship and isn't a good example of how you unpeel the onion layers of a mystery in a locked location. 

(Actually saw THE MOUSETRAP  back when it was in your recently... Surely the best template for such things)

Ah, so Star Wars would have been acceptable if it had been filmed as Leia and Luke sat telling General Dodonna about everything that happened?
