Comparison with America? [In reply to] Can't Post

Taking into consideration the difference in population? Everything in the US seems to be better selling Wink

We could do that [In reply to] Can't Post

But we don't have any actual figures for the states either do we? The percentages aren't awfully helpful without the total figures.

Alright, let's just scrap the idea [In reply to] Can't Post

Haha well I wasn't so much saying that! [In reply to] Can't Post

It would be really interesting to know - I just haven't seen enough data to get a handle on it yet but I'm sure we will keep looking.

Actually [In reply to] Can't Post

Edit - actually having just looked into Fandango's top selling list over the past couple of years this doesn't seem to bear much relation to how the film performs either in the US or worldwide. So maybe not worth all that much effort after all.

Pretty much [In reply to] Can't Post

Nothing about this has been beyond atrocious. I find saying that a little over the top. It's done nothing for me but get me even more ready to go see this film. So some of our word usage comes from where some of our initial pov lay, and for someone like me it's positive while others comes from a negative place.

It's not that deep, so you don't have to worry [In reply to] Can't Post

In general, it is quite a playful Bond movie, with fun references to the older ones.

The psychology is there, but it's pretty thin.

I haven't had as much fun at the movies in a while. You should definitely watch it.

Thanks, I would probaly give it a try, [In reply to] Can't Post

but my other half really, really hates Daniel Craig as Bond.

She likes Timothy Dalton.

A Far Dragon is the best kind...
