lunesta - 7/27/2012, 3:52 PM

JoshWilding - 7/27/2012, 3:52 PM
I watched 90 minutes of the opening ceremony and I can honestly say that it was one of the worst things I have ever seen. Somewhere in the UK tonight, Captain Britain hung himself.

I watch this, love it :)
the queen saying Good evening Mr Bond :)
Asterisk - 7/27/2012, 3:55 PM
That was sort of...odd.

The ending gave me chills, though.
spidey1994 - 7/27/2012, 3:56 PM

Tony93 - 7/27/2012, 3:57 PM

Tony93 - 7/27/2012, 3:57 PM

Shadowelfz - 7/27/2012, 4:15 PM
Sooooo pretentious. Seriously just play the goddamn games and get over with it. No fluff crap like that just play the games!

The Olympics just started and theyre already annoying me...
BooYah - 7/27/2012, 4:16 PM
@lunesta- Didn't you see that Skyfall feature that was attatched to TDKR in IMAX? That was pretty cool.
Cross - 7/27/2012, 4:20 PM
lol. That was laughably painful to watch. I bet the queen asked them to put the stupid dogs in it. That was more ridiculous than bond dressing up as a woman for one ad. Hated it. Bring on the new trailer for skyfall.

it wasn't that bad,the music & fireworks were good & seeing all the lovely lady athletes from around the world is a result,london is the only city in the world to host the olympics three times.

SkullFace616 - 7/27/2012, 4:53 PM
The opening ceremony was lame.
FilmsFan - 7/27/2012, 4:54 PM
Ya ... Go TEAM-GB!

I liked that JAMES BOND - Queen act too!
Just liked!
It was odd!

Cuz I knew it from a looong time before that something with BOND is happening, but that SHORT certainly proved u need to be a certain kind of a director to do BOND stuff!
Dany Boyle, one of my favourite directors, but he can't do BOND any justice!
Their is a reason that an ACTOR & DIRECTOR has to be in BOND-mode to do anything with BOND!

I'm honestly worried that Mendies is on the lines of Boyle guy!
We might get a different BOND that might not work!

It just felt during that clip that they are advertising BOND in the WORST possible way!
Like advertising BATMAN by showing Adam West!

I was surprised when it began and then those Dogs & jump.
Get out!!

I wanted him to RUN with USAIN BOLT!
I want him to punch John Terry!
& then do a Aston Martin stunt!
Get the Queen out of it!

KATE would've been great!
But then William had to worry... haha!!
CaptainAmerica31 - 7/27/2012, 4:58 PM
The US is gonna kick some serious ass this year


USA USA USA USA can't wait to hear that chant!
CaptainAmerica31 - 7/27/2012, 5:01 PM
It would be better if the US was hosting
marvel72 - 7/27/2012, 5:04 PM
estimated 1 billion people watched it worldwide.

@ spidey31

CaptainAmerica31 - 7/27/2012, 5:07 PM

CaptainAmerica31 - 7/27/2012, 5:07 PM

BrickWall - 7/27/2012, 5:27 PM

London is the best city in the world.
CaptainAmerica31 - 7/27/2012, 5:27 PM

angus666 - 7/27/2012, 5:29 PM
Well the opening was awesome. I'm glad to be British.
CaptainAmerica31 - 7/27/2012, 5:30 PM
Isnt London the biggest city in the world?
BooYah - 7/27/2012, 5:33 PM
@blackandyellow- lol, that's true our basketball team is a for sure gold. Itll only be a matter of time before they take basketball out of the Olympics like they did with baseball.
INSTANTJUSTICE - 7/27/2012, 5:34 PM
I hate the Olympics and I hate the over-indulgent, pompous opening ceremonies but that was amazing and each new thing told a story.
