      2012 is going to be a hell of a year for big films. And Sam Mendes is a monumental upgrade from Marc Forster. Stoked.

      No kidding. Wow. This should be great. I loved Casino Royale, it was classic Bond. There were bits I liked about Quantum but it was just not very interesting overall. They had such a great lead-in story but pretty much pissed the whole thing away.

      Nice. As long as they don't have any panty-waisted villians. Dominic Greene was a horrible, horrible bad guy. I'd rather have Steven Segal do nothing as a bad guy instead of the guy who played Greene.

      Casino Royale was straight epic old school bond goodness.. Hopefully they can do something as good with this film.. is Craig signing on for more? Or is this his last...

      I respectively disagree. I saw him as a intelligent but sinister bad guy. Very creepy.

      The only thing really creepy was his maniacal-axe-wielding fight at the end. I think I read somewhere that he was supposed to fight like someone who's never had training, which he didn't.

      But agree to disagree.

      QoS had a pretty threadbare story, so I'm hoping that the time off will give the filmmakers time to craft a good story.

      Casino Royale was such a high point in the Bond franchise and then QoS was one of the worst.

      Yeah Casino Royale was so good, after watching it QoS was almost boring.

      Wow, that's pretty harsh. I wouldn't call QoS one of the worst. There were several other stinkers that I'd put ahead it:

      -The Man with the Golden Gun
      -Live and Let Die
      -Moonraker (cheesy as hell and a total riff on the Star Wars phenomenon)
      -A View to a Kill
      -License to Kill

      Those were truly, truly awful. Some might argue that a couple of the Brosnan movies belong there, too, but he's one of my sentimental favorite Bonds since he got screwed out of the role back in the 80s by NBC.

      I'm really looking forward to the new one and I hope that it lives up to CR.

      Oh, and I hope that they finally resolve the Vesper Lynne (sp?) stary arc. Too much time has passed now and I doubt most people care. It's going to be mighty tedious if 23 doesn't put the dirt on her coffin.
      Rest easy, Bart.

      You're right, I take that back. QoS' acting and production were all quite well done, it's just the story was so incredibly weak (even more so than Moonraker--which at least had a maniacal guy trying to re-populate the Earth. Plus Jaws!).

      Hopefully they finish introducing the Quantum organization. I was hoping that having a modern SPECTRE would allow them to bring in more of the Bond gadgetry.

      As far as I'm concerned, Vesper's story was concluded at the end of QoS. 23 should be able to rip without that baggage from the get-go.

      And yea, I'm gonna have to say Die Another Day is the worst bond flick ever.

      I read somewhere that the Vesper story arc would continue with 23. I hoping they conclude it.

      I sensed the end of the Vesper arc with how QoS closed out.

      Only in comparison to Die Another Day, which is the worst movie in the franchise by far.

      I would say that all of the Brosnan movies belong in there with the possible exception of Goldeneye. They were all pretty ****e, and got worse with each one. Connery wasn't immune from the bad films, either. Diamonds Are Forever stank, and though not a Cubby Broccoli film and not cannon, Never Say Never Again was dreadful as well.

      I disagree. I liked several of the Brosnan films, though they all had some really stupid elements.

      And I loved Never Say Never Again, but it's been years since I've seen it. The story was just a remake of Thunderball which was one of the best Bond films of the entire franchise.

      If I had the rank the Brosnan films, it'd be:

      casino royale was on tv last night and i think i FINALLY understood the whole movie.
      the sheer number of bad guys was hard to keep up with.

      what's this new one about? casino royale was the prequel already... are we going to have another prequel to the prequel? lol

      Glad this is greenlit. I really loved Casino Royale and it was the first ever Bond movie I really cared for. QoS isn't on its level but I still think it was good (comparing it to the Brosnan movies which didn't do much for me).

      That is probably true, but I have never seen the originals and some aspects of the Brosnan films seemed to campy for me. As for the Bourne feeling, I love the them, so that is probably why the new Bond films appeal to me.

      I'm not a true Bond fan so I'm probably not the most qualified to comment.

      True of QoS, but Casino Royale is considerably better than anything the Bourne trilogy has to offer.

      Traditional Bond movies have a lot more cheesy yet funny... and unbelieveably believable scenes that actually work out... almost borderline porn... kinda like the scene in casino royale where he wins the aston martin from the bad guy... and gets it from valet and cons the bad guy's girl into the car... "wanna go back to my place?" "sure" drive a circle and right back at the hotel... and end up getting the girl back in his room making out...

      the old bond would've ****ed her first before leaving for miami. this bond didn't. lol

"wanna go back to my place?" "sure" drive a circle and right back at the hotel... and end up getting the girl back in his room making out...

      the old bond would've ****ed her first before leaving for miami. this bond didn't. lol
      that scene was classic, and boy was that girl hot! . Sad she had to die the way she did though .

      women are disposable in bond films
      i think daniel craig's casino royale is the only one where the movie doesn't end with him ****ing a girl as the credits roll...

      Can't wait for Bond 23! My only wishes for #23 would be a bad-ass villain and slightly more focus on Bond's Q-issued vehicle. Overall, Daniel Craig has been fantastic. I grew up with Roger Moore, then Timothy Dalton before going back to revisit the Sean Connery era. Throw in 1 for Lazenby. Pierce Brosnan came and went but all in all, I respect each of them for what they brought to the Bond character.

      My standout picks of the pack for the Connery era:
      From Russia With Love
      Goldfinger

      Moore:
      The Spy Who Loved Me

      Dalton:
      The Living Daylights (if I had to pick)

      Brosnan:
      GoldenEye

      Craig:
      Casino Royale
      2003 Acura MDX
      2006 BMW X3
