Sheesh. And here I was holding onto all of this nostalgia for it being the first Bond film I got to see in a theatre.
Seriously, TWINE doesn't rate just a touch better than Die Another Day for you two?
It's actually been years since I saw either of these movies, but for whatever it's worth DAD
sticks in my memory way better than TWINE
(for some reason I keep forgetting details about TWINE
like the connection to M's past or Denise Richards, but the plot of DAD
presents itself to me with a fair amount of coherence).
For me the great virtue of Die Another Day
is that Brosnan had at that point given up caring about onion layers, and as a result I find his performance to be the most relaxed and, well, fun
out of all four of his Bond flicks (really, the guy's not a charmless actor any time he's not playing Bond, but getting into that tux turns him into a charisma-vacuum). Plus, even though the plot is stupid and the stunts are over the top, DAD
has the good grace not to take itself seriously after the first twenty minutes or so.
