Dr. No is still one of my favourite Bond movies. More of a spy thriller than an action movie.

Until Craig he was the closest to the literary Bond but he did it a bit too on the nose and it seemed off-putting.

James Bond, the Muppets, Chewbacca, Spock, and all the super friends or whatever you call them should just be in every movie together. I'm talking infinite crossover from everywhere, all the time. I mean, who gives a s#!t anymore?

....Look - the series had a pretty good run.  I wish Spectre had been a little bit better, but overall it wasn't a bad way to end things.

/Heard there was a movie a year or so back where they killed Bond off, but that's impossible, because you can't kill James Bond

"I'm too cool to care about James Bond. But James Bond should be played by a black transexual with one leg and a speech-impediment. Hesheit should also drive a Tesla, listen to horrible music, hate themselves because they have money, live off of artisnal raisins that are cultivated from a sustainable grove that is only watered at optimal times of the day with the urine of Elon Musk. Oh, and they also has to know how to code."

Did I cover all of the standards for the "New Bond"?

You're thinking of the original French series that House was based on. The one where Dinklage played Henri Chateau.

AtlanticCoast63: /Heard there was a movie a year or so back where they killed Bond off, but that's impossible, because you can't kill James Bond


Everyone has their favourite version of the character.  Connery original, Moore's happy-go-lucky, Dalton's more somber depth, whatever Brosnan was doing.

Craig's version of Bond had to die because it fit thematically with how the character had been portrayed over 5 films.  Consequences were real (death of Vesper, death of M, death of Felix), and long-term damage was real (Bond's alcoholism, physical/mental scarring).  All of that would have been cheapened if he'd sailed into the sunset.

Relax, Bond will be back.  Played by the racoon from Guardians of the Galaxy.

the biggest issue I have had with the bond movies is they make it to much like hes a true spy.

maybe its just me but from reading the books and in 1 or 2 of the older movies.  They make the 00 branch of MI6 out to be more like the heavy guns then the spies.  As in they have true spies getting data on some threat, and then when enough they bring in the 00's to deal with the threat. Yes the 00's might have to do some undercover work themself but by the time they been called in 90% is done and they just need to track down the target to take it out.
