“30-Days” a Winning Format
🕵🏽 NTtD open in the United States a while ago. Finally have tickets to see it Tuesday since my son (22) and I want to see it together. I’m not sure about other countries but in our movie theaters we have to pick our specific seats ahead of time. I was surprised that, when I purchased them, all the seats were still available.
🕵️♀️ He thinks the reason is mostly because of competing films. However I think there is a much smaller fan-base at least in the northeast. Bond is nowhere near as popular as in the 1960s-90s. BTW my guy is Pierce.
🕵🏼♀️ The vast majority of the ninety-second listener reviews mentioned they saw the film multiple times. Surely if that were the case in the U.S. then there would remain a fairly heavy audience. It’s been 10 days & still my theater has lots of seats free. Just my observation.
🎙Your show gives an outstanding treatment of “all things 007” just like that sexy voice claims. Even when you disagree etc the sincerity & rationale are obvious. Very very entertaining for this longtime fan. I do miss the little games & trivia which bookended the episodes though. The “watches” & “car crashes” two-parters were great. Loved the comparisons of villains’ deaths, too. And the restraint with which Tom examined Die Another Day is admirable. Chris has a talent for analysis of the filmmaking processes evident on screen; I wish he would offer more of that production expertise.
🍿 Back to where I started: Because of the controversy surrounding No Time to Die, I decided to approach this Tuesday afternoon knowing everything critical (+/-) about it. I wanted no surprises since I really want to enjoy it. To me, the best part of the Daniel films was all the fan service in Skyfall. I don’t mind knowing the plots & subplots & the character quirks & this & that. Usually, yes, but because practically all the JBR listener reviews testified that subsequent viewings raised their own appreciations of NTtD, I decided the 30-Days would be my 1st attempt albeit non-visual. For example, Chris’ great explanation of Safin’s Island will calm whatever curiosities or confusions that pop up in my head immediately at those screen moments.
🙂 Thank you, guys, and that includes your guests & producers.
No mention of Paloma??
