I do want to watch Satantango one of these days, but it feels like homework.
I haven't seen Satantango either, but here are two or three things I know about her(meneutics):

i) homework shouldn't stop because you have left school;
ii) the things that are best for your body, mind and spirit often require hard work commensurate with their benefit;
iii) even the hardest work does not and should not preclude deep and lasting pleasure in the doing.

Thank you all for coming to my Fuck Ted Talk. You will not be getting your phones back

As this topic has established, "better installments" and "weaker entries" are wildly subjective for Bond films.
Ha, fair enough. I guess a better way to have expressed it is that I can treat them each as separate movies and decide whether or not to watch them individually, rather than as a unit.

Well said and I agree completely. That's why it's on my list. I'll have to refer back to your Fuck Ted Talk the next time my wife asks me why I'm watching something like this.

Depending on what kind of woman she is, I might also suggest the more succinct mock-aggro "Culture is a contact sport, honey."

Fair warning: it requires a delicate tonal balance which, if miscalculated, could result in your having to enter a strongman cagefight contest in order to prove your manhood.

Satantango takes time and concentration (it's worth it), but I at this stage the thought of sitting through yet another Bond movie sounds a lot more like homework to me!
