Where’s the fun in that? This is the internet. But my point is superhero flicks are to this decade what spy films were to the 60s.
But I plead guilty to jumping on the “Eon’s too slow” bandwagon for no good reason. I can’t honestly say I’m that interested in seeing NTTD, any more than I was SP or SF before it. I’m much more entertained by the M:I films in recent years, and by those superhero flicks I took a swipe at. And none of those involve anticipation: they’re here, they’re fun, they’re gone.
If I’m honest with myself, I’m hoping they do release NTTD at a time I can skip it with the excuse of staying safe. Otherwise I’ll end up back in the theater anyway despite my lack of interest, perpetuating the law of diminishing returns for no other reason than not wanting to break a 40+ year streak of seeing every Bond in the cinema. You know you’re getting old when the ruling force in your life is inertia.
