Excellent to get this ahead of schedule.

Also, another Quantum fan here. It's a delight.

EDIT: Whoops... @ 41:36 Spont ad plays at the same time as the content...?
EDIT2: Looks like I got the first mix uploaded last night. All sorted with a re-download.

I absolutely love this film, so I was relieved to hear the Matts fighting its corner against Maria & Amanda's somewhat predictable disdain. I love the theme song (so much more interesting and cool than the recent Sam Smith dirge), I love how lean the film is, I love how focused Craig seems. I like the banter between Bond & Felix, I love how the Bond girl had her own arc and wasn't just yet another romantic foil. That foot chase and the fight in the church is surely one of the best action scenes in any Bond film. Overall, very underrated and it deserves reappraisal because disliking it just because it's not Casino Royale is churlish and kinda lazy.

Plus, the coolest end credits music of any Bond film.

But I don't agree about the car chase being the best of the franchise though. For me that honour belongs to Man With The Golden Gun.
