"Tomorrow Never Dies" (re-watch)
One of those Bond films I seem to like more the more I watch it.
When I saw it for the first time in an advance screening at midnight I was either too tired or too conceited to really enjoy it. But the relentless action (with very impressive and inventive ideas masterfully pulled off) and the simple plot really turn this film into one of the most fast-paced Bonds of the franchise, and its over-the-top villain is outfitted with a timely and interesting obsession to ground him again. Sure, this is high concept-Bond and more shameless escapism than "Goldeneye" but I cannot help being constantly entertained.
The reportedly difficult shoot with constant script revisions somehow gelled into something that holds the attention, amuses and thrills.
And Brosnan once again is a fantastic Bond, tougher than I had remembered, enjoying himself, delivering one-liners with aplomb, convincing in the fight scenes and oozing arrogant self-confidence just as Bond should.
Fast food Bond? Well, maybe. But it´s delicious, and right now, I do rate it even higher than "Goldeneye".
