Ika7734: calbert: because lazy writers and easily impressed audiences... who thought Skyfall was good.

I enjoyed skyfall, but was annoyed that the whole 2nd half of the movie was because Q sucked at IT

I didn't hate it, but the writing was frustratingly lazy.

My main complaint is that it seems like they shoe-horned New Bond in to his role as old-man superspy just so they could play up his commiseration with M, probably because writing it some other way would have taken slightly more effort.

The conversation between Q and Bond, when Daniel Craig's Bond doesn't seem to realize that he's not Sean Connery's Bond (or even Brosnan's... they already did the "relic of the cold war" angle with him) and they throw in the crack about how out-of-his-element he is in a world where the pens aren't also one-man helicopters or sci-fi lasers or some bullshiat was especially out of place.

They couldn't even blame it on the relatively-recent transition from the Cold War, so the whole thing comes off as "you're a violent barbarian from another age--who somehow did fine throughout the 90s, apparently, but nevermind that--who is no longer needed now that we're engaged in a seemingly never-ending struggle against stateless extremists and proliferation of dangerous weapons... oh, wait."

Looks like this is a combination of Poisonous Captive, Get Into Jail Free and I Surrender, Suckers.

TVTropes always comes through.
