No Time to Die

No Time to Die

"Because you need me, Springfield. Your guilty conscience may force you to vote Democratic, but deep down inside, you secretly long for a cold-hearted Republican to lower taxes, brutalize criminals and rule you like a king!"--Lucifer Satan (Rami Malek) in No Time to Die (2021)

Fun movie, if overlong, a bit flat/boring in places. The third best Craig movie, which I guess makes it about the 12th best overall? Not bad. The action arguably peaks in Cuba, but that whole act ranks among one of the best the franchise has managed. Fun to make a mini-boss a Bond fanboy with a shit eating grin. Congrats to Daniel Craig on bowing out when he did. One more movie and he would have been undone by the most merciless villain of all: Age Gap Discourse.
