Bond...again.
« on: Oct 11, 05, 12:36:38 pm CDT »

I know we've covered this over and over but once again...they seem to be close to an announcement. And according to some of the links it's all but a done deal.

The next Bond is...Daniel Craig.

I have to admit...I watched him in "Layer Cake" last week and I'm thinking he just might pull off a good Bond.

And I am so HAPPY about this.

Granted my first choice of Jason Isaacs didn't happen. Nor my second choice of Clive Owen. Or my third choice of Ralph Fiennes.

Thank god they didn't give it to some pretty boy like Jude Law or Orlando Bloom.

Here's to them making Bond a serious dude with an attitude.

well if they actually get someone good to write the bond scripts again and not just focus on blowing stuff up maybe it will be good.  not that the blowing up is bad mind you but one thing that seperated bond movies was the good storyline to go along with the blowing up, else we end up with the movie 'XXX', which was fun but not a good movie.

I wish they'd try to go back to playing Bond as he's written in the books.  The most swave asshole that ever ventillated someone's head in the name of Queen and Country.  Bond is supposed to be a ruthless assassain first, a spy second, a womanizer third, and likeable fourth.

Unfortunately that doesn't play to the mass audience.  Sex sells and if Bond isn't sexy then the movies won't get off the ground and the franchise will tank.  ::shrug:: Economics wins and holding true to the canon has to bow to the economics.

bond being a suave womanizer asshole works for me but we havn't had that in a while, they seem to think that explosions are all that sell and are awestruck when only the 14 yr old boys want to go see their movies for explosions and lines like "i thought christmas only comes once a year."

is it too much to ask for decent dialogue and storyline anymore?</rant>

I'm sure someone else on here said this but I wish Dalton would have been Bond a *little* bit longer! Or at least as long as Brosnan was. IMO, Dalton and Lazenby were the only ones who really captured Fleming's idea of his personality. :-(

Very true. I find the man most UN-sexy...

A Blond Bond just is NOT my cup of tea. And especially not him. Just have never found the man sexy... AT. ALL.
