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.
-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.
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.
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.
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
I'm not a true Bond fan so I'm probably not the most qualified to comment.
the old bond would've ****ed her first before leaving for miami. this bond didn't. lol
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
The Spy Who Loved Me
The Living Daylights (if I had to pick)
2003 Acura MDX
2006 BMW X3
