I take it you don't like Bond movies? Or don't care how others rate movies?
I enjoyed some of them, at the time, most are crap, though, cut me some slack. Way too tame and formulaic, as it were.
I just asked 2 questions, and don't even necessarily disagree with you.
Bond movies are fun first and most, but I don't often watch them more than once in my life. I may not even have seen all of them.
As for ratings posted... as I said, I haven't watched enough to agree or disagree.
There was no "James Bond" after Sean Connery. AFAIC.
One of the most brilliant English Literature professors I had in University read Romance Novels - guilty pleasure.
There a "films" and there are "movies" and I find it sad that some people people take themselves so seriously that they can't appreciate them both.
But it follows to music and food and other aspects of life. Granted I kind of feel that most action movies, Bond included, are like roller coasters - you see it once and it's over. Scorcese argues that about the Marvel films. Sure they are intellectual bubble gum - a short flavour buzz that doesn't last. But they taste good while they last.
It's probably why the Bond films that make more money are on the sillier end of the spectrum. Serious can be found someplace else - an arthouse film.
