Trolltastic headline if I ever saw one. Craig is at least twice the Bond that Brosnan ever was, even with the misstep that was Quantum Solace. Get over it, subby.

*ding ding ding ding*

Exactly. I wouldn't mind the trolltastic headlines if they were funny or creative.

This? Strictly bush league stuff. We're better than this.


That said, Skyfall is awesome, as is Daniel Craig as Bond. Whatever problems exist with Quantum of Solace (of which there are plenty), you *can't* fault Craig. He brings it each and every time.

Definitely better than Brosnan's Bond from my humblest of humble points of view.

That's mathematically provable, even: Craig has had two good bond movies so far. Brosnan only had one.

Skyfall was great while you were watching it. Once it's over and you start thinking about it, it doesn't hold up. And then you get mad that you were tricked into thinking that it was good.

it was enjoyable to watch.

it wasn't a good movie and it definitely wasn't a good James Bond movie.

and for everyone who biatched that Michael Caine's foreshadowing in TDKR giving away the ending, the opening title sequence of Skyfall, which was visually awesome, gives away the whole movie. and Adele's song was painfully droning. It wasn't 'mesmerizing' or 'haunting', it was painful.

I like both Brosnan and Craig as James Bond. But apparently that isn't allowed, we're only supposed to like a single version of a character.

You wound me Sir. You and I usually see eye to eye on pop culture bullshiat. But Brosnan was the best Bond, even if he didn't have the best movies. Craig is a humorless Jason Bourne clone. Brosnan knew how to look like he had fun chugging vodka, dogging girls and shooting the bad guys. Craig's Bond  might be closer to the books but he's boring.

Having said that, Skyfall was a great Bond film. But it would have been better with Brosnan. And the old Q. Sick of movie computer hackers.

Well GoldenEye was maybe my favorite but Die Another Day was terrible. I still don't know WTF that movie was even about. Tomorrow Never Dies and The World is Not Enough were okay. The World is Not Enough had the best opening song, IMO. Shirley Manson, ftw.

why dont people like quantum? i preferred it to skyfall

spoilers:

1. i dont care about bonds childhood. boo hoo, youre an orphan. it doesnt make you any more interesting a character
2. i dont need to see bond go on a bender cause boo hoo mi6 abandoned me
3. i dont need to see bond play castle defense. youre a super spy. youre supposed to infiltrate secret lairs, not turtle up in an abandoned home. it was better done in la confidential anyways
4. i dont need to see bond cry

wtf happened to quantum anyways? the way the first 2 films set up this nefarious global organization was great

sad to see judi dench go, but they found a good replacement in ralph fiennes.

Heh, that we do, actually... and nothin' personal, anyways.

It's like how Mike Nelson calls Any Which Way You Can the funnier Clyde the Orangutan movie but Every Which Way But Loose the better-made Clyde the Orangutan movie.

Brosnan's Bond is a bit more fun in my book - at the risk of being a Pungeon Master - and so that fun follows with his films (except Die Another Day, which we've already dissed to death).

Craig's Bond is more compelling to me, and I think it gives his films a more interesting edge (Quantum being an anomaly, but this has already been discussed to death) even though they may not be the thrill-park fun ride spectacles in the same vein as the Brosnan Bond movies.

If that makes sense.

Also, if it means anything, before Skyfall, I had Brosnan's Bond above Craig's Bond in the rankings, as per a previous thread. Skyfall was a game-changer for me, I guess.


Mugato: Having said that, Skyfall was a great Bond film. But it would have been better with Brosnan. And the old Q. Sick of movie computer hackers.


I want to be in the alternate universe where Brosnan and old Q are in Skyfall.

I also want to peer into the alternate universe in which Timothy Dalton stayed on for a third movie.


Mugato: The World is Not Enough had the best opening song, IMO. Shirley Manson, ftw.


No argument there. THAT song was boss.

It not only sounded great, but it also had the distinction of coming directly from the villain's point of view. I loved that.


MayoSlather: I thought Brosnan was a better Bond, but cursed with inferior scripts.


I loved what Craig did in Skyfall a whole helluva lot, but I'll second that inferior scripts thing.

They really saddled Brosnan's Bond with some silly stuff at times.

(I know, I know, Roger Moore in a clown suit, I know.)

Big fan of the new dimensions that Daniel Craig brings to Bond, really liked the first two but Skyfall was pretty weak. He got M killed. It was totally his fault but with no apparent consequences.

thisiszombocom: why dont people like quantum? i preferred it to skyfall


I didn't like QoS because of the shakycam business, methamphetamine-fueled editing, a rather blase group of villains (but I *did* like the idea of Quantum being a SPECTRE-like group of bad guys), a sorta boring Bond girl by way of Olga Kurylenko, pacing issues, a script that seemed rushed (no doubt due in part to the writers' strike), and an overall atmosphere and tone that seemed to draw much of the fun away.

And the theme song was horrible. The only lyrics I can vaguely remember are "another ringer with the quick slick trigger finger" and "another way to die." Not a huge factor in the big picture, but... blah.

That's not to say that the film doesn't have its merits. What it gets right, it gets right with a fierceness. The opera scene was great, I'll give it points for that. I also liked that they included the characters of Matthias and Felix Leitner again.

It would be interesting to see the Quantum organization again. After all, Mr. White *is* still floating around out there.

To me they are like the Doctor. And I've been seeing them new since _Diamonds Are Forever._ Each Bond is Bond, in his own way. Some of the stories are better than others. Dalton kind of got ripped off.

I think the Craig ones are so good for now, and that's part of what's groovy about them. They each fit their era, and he's right for this one.

Q needs to be old and the only person Bond respects and maybe even fears. Bond might trash the equipment but he's not happy about the repercussions of it. The new Q is just the same kid we see in every movie or tv show about computer hackers.

I will miss Judi Dench as M. Robbie Coltrane and Mitchell will be missed as well.

THAT'S what I hated about The World is Not Enough. I mean, it might have been necessary story-wise, but I hated hated hated HATED that they killed Valentin. That dude rocked.

Mitchell should have tried to save Die Another Day. He couldn't have been worse than Michael Madsen.

There were definitely some gaping plot holes in Skyfall, like in the beginning when Bond gets shot and goes over the waterfall, then some giant cartoon lady picks him up with her fingers. They never mention the giant cartoon lady again. What's up with that?

Just my opinion, but I like Thunderball the most. The bad girl is hot, and the good girl is so smokin' hot I can't even remember how to finish this sentence. I loved the charismatic bad guy and the cat-and-mouse interplay between him and Bond. It has it's bad moments, like Bond not suffering any ill effects from explosives going off when he was under water, and I think the underwater battle at the end suffers. Hell, it was so good, they had to remake it into Never Say Never Again, for no particular reason. Man, did I spank it to Barbara Carrerra.

I am one of the silent minority that likes this one. Is it the best? Not by a long shot. But it has Diana Rigg, and a decent spy story. But, I'll confess, I like it for a really stupid reason: I like that they showed Bond having to study up on Genealogy. He wasn't just a gorilla in a tux, he had his job because he could learn quick and think on his feet. Well, mostly, anyways. You're not getting that shiat past Telly Savalas as Blofeld.

Really? It's the most compelling of the Moore-era flicks IMHO, especially as he wasn't as much of a lecherous clown as he was in the others. He was serious and it was a thrill to see him to step up to the plate. The Spy Who Loved Me is a fairly close second, though.


As for OHMSS, I know how despised it is around these parts-and that's fine. I, however, will defend Lazenby's performance until my dying breath. He had the daunting task of following after Connery and, with the help of a stellar script, managed to pull it off. Woefully under appreciated.

Not to take anything away from the guy, but I don't know if Connery could've successfully handled the emotionally driven elements of OHMSS, particularly THAT ending.

There's a lot of reasons why OHMSS is very good.

It's like... look, Lazenby had a shiatty agent who told him that the James Bond series would be culturally irrelevant. That's why he did one movie instead of agreeing to a seven-Bond-picture deal. It had nothing to do with the box office take (which was solid) or his acting skills (which were capable).
