Thoughts. Bond Thoughts.

What did we think of this excursion into the world of British Aryan superspies? Sorry, but the Superdragon could take Bond on anyday of the week, and has. Remember Finland, James!?!?!

Well, I really loved this movie and was trepidatious about riffing it, (especially when so many other Bond films were more worthy), but I must admit, the boys were in rare form!  Great stuff!

The "11,000 dollar" running gag, the great call backs to other Rifftrax and MST3K stuff, just really awesome.  I loved it.  There were times when I said, to myself, "Stop it you guys, it's a good movie..." but I was laughing the whole time...

As a special note:  the intro with DisembAudio acting all... um... a certain way... and when Kevin said, "Is it me?  Or did DisembAudio sound a little.."  Mike: "Yes..." and then he just went on with the instructions.  That sequence was played so well by Mike, like he was uncomfortable even thinking about it, let alone talking about it.  Man, so funny!

It was pretty good. I don't know if it's in my top 10, but I'd give it an eight. There were some pretty funny jokes, but they kind of lagged in the middle, which might have off-put me a little. I'd compare it to the LOTR rifftrax.

I too liked Casino Royale by itself.  However, the beauty of Rifftrax is the ability to say even some good flicks can be enhanced with a few quips here and there to point out the ridiculousness (sp?)

I thought this Rifftrax was brilliant!

I thought it was an ok riff.  They had some good jokes, but with the pace of the movie slowing down in the second half, the riffs slowed down too.

an 8/10 for me.

i also think that a movie with a 2:30 hour runtime should have a 3rd riffer, i think that's why LOTR and it's long runtime worked.

But Fellowship only had 2 riffers.

yeah, I was wrong about LOTR.  But this one, while good, was missing something.

I thought it was a good riffing, not the best.. But I thought the movie stunk. I love the old Bond and Brosnan.. Craig just plain sucks. No classic formula.. Only a med kit gadget and cell phones? Bah. Give me a healthy dose of Q branch any day.

Still a good riff, but the movie was dull as hell...

You disliked the movie because it wasn't formulaic and goofy gadget-intensive enough? I think that puts you pretty solidly in the minority, my friend.
