Do not watch.
You know you're going to see the movie, spare yourself the spoilers in this trailer.

Didn't know what "Skyfall" was referring to just by the headline, but that does sound interesting after skimming the article. I should probably start with the first Daniel Craig Bond film though if I ever do watch his version of the character. He was good in Cowboys and Aliens, never have seen him in anything that I can recall at least where he has a British Accent.

Swordquest part IV or the next Zelda game?

Mrs. James Bond isn't in it either.

Say what you will about the queen but she really hits her mark with a parachute jump.

I'm looking forward to this. But did I catch a "Take the shot" line for Dame Judy?

/ugh

Casting Stuart Smalley as the villain is an interesting choice.

Watch Layer Cake, it's widely regarded as the movie that got him a shot at the role in the first place. Similar to a Guy Ritchie Brit-Crime movie like Lock, Stock in lots of ways. Great cast to boot.

I thought that said "Skyrim," and was trying to remember a queen in the game.

So this movie looks farking awesome so far. I'm not sure if i will be able to view the villain as anything but who he was in No Country for Old Men.

hamdingers: Casting Stuart Smalley as the villain is an interesting choice.


It was only natural. He tried to be a nice guy, but his film bombed at the box office. He has to have a motive for his revenge. Goldeneye came out the same year as his film, so there you go.

Its an age thing. Its who was around when you were young. Just like who is your favourite Dr Who.
I'd quietly go for Roger Moore as well - Moonraker is my favourite and has held up amazingly well.
 
2012-07-31 12:36:11 PM
This is the first of the Daniel Craig films I'm actually looking forward to.

*now* he's starting to look like James Bond. Now he's less of a thug and more of a super spy.

I am serious!

The special effects are 40 years old and were done before the shuttle even launched for real.

The approach to the space station and the reveal out of the darkness with the music is a classic Bond moment.

Also, Moonraker has a great script - especially Drax.

I've been watching all the films in order this summer. The Moore era has been farking painful. Moonraker is almost unwatchable.

james bond is supposed to be a thug, he is a assassin after all not a spy

love the daniel craig take on it, roger moore could have been swaped for dudley moore and had the same affect
 
2012-07-31 01:25:51 PM
Moonraker has, IMHO, one of the very best pre-title action sequences in the Bond films (the free-fall fistfight over possession of a parachute). Unfortunately, the movie gets progressively worse from there -- with some of the lowest moments in the entire Bond series (chief among them: the pigeon doing a 'double-take' during the Venice chase scene).

I have a similar opinion of Die Another Day ... the pre-title sequence, and the first 30 minutes or so, is among the finest of Pierce Brosnan's turn as James Bond. But -- beginning with the fencing competition -- the movie gets progressively more ludicrous with each scene, dipping even below Moonraker-badness, on occasion (Bond windsurfing on an iceburg-tsunami, the villain's 'powerglove, etc).

The sci-fi jump of Moonraker + the blaxpoitation of Live and Let Die = enough to damn Roger Moore.

/And don't even make me mention him creaking around in A View to a Kill.

Don't forget the cheeky slapstick comedy of The Man with the Golden Gun.

Yeah, pretty much. Maybe his only redeeming one was "The Spy Who Loved Me."

Maybe.

Yeah, that one I could never understand them making. I guess you can say the same thing about "Moonraker" as well.
 
2012-07-31 02:38:06 PM
So my question for all the Farkers: Is it pretty much agreed that "James Bond" is a codename for 007, and not necessarily the guy's real name?
 
2012-07-31 02:41:08 PM

Decillion: Roger Moore = Best Bond.

That is all.


1. Connery
2. Dalton
3. Early Moore (before Moonraker)
4. Brosnan
5. Craig
6. Lazenby
7. Late Moore

in that order.
 
2012-07-31 02:41:48 PM
My favorite Bond movies from all 5 previous bonds:

Connery - From Russia with Love. IMO better than Goldfinger as the whole Red Grant/Bond cat-and-mouse duel ends up having Bond almost killed until he is able to reverse Red's garotte on himself.

Lazenby - Default. On Her Majesty's Secret Service, I liked it.

Moore - For Your Eyes Only. For me it maintained a realism, nothing like Moonraker. I sorta admire plots where World Domination/Global Annihilation isn't the big picture. Instead it was just a fight over a top secret device from a Submarine.

Dalton - License to Kill. Underrated movie, as I don't think people were ready to get away from the Bond series that Roger Moore set. Where it was bordering on a fantasy, and not being realistic. Instead Dalton goes Rogue to avenge Felix attack and his Wife's Murder. Made best when Bond uses the lighter on Sanchez, setting him ablaze in a Punisher-like fashion.

Brosnan - Tomorrow Never Dies. I felt it was the best of the films but Goldeneye is right there. For me Carver's plan of having a Newspaper front to broadcast his shady terrorist background is more a devious plan then to simply use a EMP Blast to erase any stolen money transactions.

Daniel Craig should win the Oscar and beat Roger Moore to death with it!

I think I may have had a minor stroke since I didn't recognize him as the guy from No Country. I guess I would replace my original question with "You chose that actor but decided to have him look like that??"

No, in the second Casino Royale (the one with David Niven and Woody Allen). The original version starred Barry Nelson and Peter Lorre, and pre-dated Dr No by eight years.
