A link (I don't think greened) a week or so ago said he was doing 2 more.

What, George Lazenby was busy?

Craig's fine, write better scripts

His paycheck will be greater than the GDP of most small countries.

I watched his first movie as Bond. He wasn't Bond to me, just another action movie. I never watched any more Bond movies with him in it.

I had a feeling that dump truck full of money would be persuasive.

Not enough invisible cars or slide-whistles, eh?

Shame. Craig has the charisma of a wet mop. Irregardless of the script, his movies are the worst Bond movies ever made. The Casino Royale farce they did in the 60's with David Niven and Peter Sellers is more watchable than the modern stuff. There are plenty of other British actors that could fill the part flawlessly.

Tom Hiddleston, Ewan McGregor, and Damian Lewis just to name a few.

This is really good news. Craig is the best Bond of the bunch.

God why bother? All the movies are total shiat, and just keep getting worse.

No.

Craig is OK, but he isn't sexy enough to be Bond.
Tom Hiddleston has more sex appeal and could pull it off better.

No.


I agree on McGregor and Lewis (nobody wants a ginger Bond), but Tom Hiddleston would be awesome. He already auditioned for the role in The Night Manager.

I think the guy that played Thomas on Downton Abbey would do well. Would have a certain smugness to him.

Casino Royal is arguably one of the Bonds made and represents Ian Flemings character  more accurately than many of the other Bond films.  The last two Bonds sucked. We need better writing.

I liked Daniel Craig's Bond movies and I'm not a huge Bond fan.  They weren't any worse than Brosnan's movies for sure.

Wait, I thought all of Fark was campaigning for Idris Elba to be the next Bond?

I don't think there's any argument Casino Royale is one of the Bonds made.

There's the books and there's the movies. I agree that Craig is more in line with Fleming's book Bond, but the movies are their own entities.

I don't dislike Craig as Bond, but he's a much different Bond than we've usually seen. He's more of a Dalton type Bond, where he's psychologically damaged. His deeds have left a real mark on him and not for the better. He's more of a killer. The result is he feels more like an action star than the ladies' man secret agent type.

Connery, Lazenby, Moore, and Brosnan are more suave. Bad things happen to them, but they're able to laugh them off (some more than others) and get back to work drinking martinis, bedding women, and killing bad guys. I wonder if our culture isn't quite ready to go back to this kind of Bond- too much misogyny and flippancy at the violence for our current sensibilities.

There was a popular reddit thread last week about things that people are either full for or full against. Things like coconut, mayonnaise, dick made the list. After reading the Bond threads, I'm 99% sure that's how people feel about it. You either love Craig or hate Craig.
 
2017-08-16 02:00:03 PM  
He's a good bond, but the movie is over 2 years away. Super Troopers 2 will probably be out by then.

They could start without making every premise "James Bond has to save the entire world, again".

/same for the Star Trek movies.
//can we have at least one movie where the Enterprise doesn't blow up, or MI6 is completely compromised

And that's exactly why I like both Craig and Dalton as Bond.  I feel it's more what Flemming had in mind.

I enjoyed all the Bond films and am a very big fan, but Craig and Dalton I consider the best adaptations of Flemmings work.
 
2017-08-16 03:24:20 PM  
Old? Sure, it's been 11 years since his first one, but Roger Moore played the part onto his mid 50s. I would say Craig's got a license to... uh, do that.

Hiddleston is wrong in all the ways Roger Moore was, except moreso.

You are wrong in all the ways.
James Bond should have sex appeal dripping from his eyelashes.
Daniel Craig does not.

Noy according to Mrs. Buck 41.

You used the word "irregardless." Your opinion is invalid.

I wouldn't say Skyfall and Spectre outright sucked, but I didn't like them as much as Casino Royale or even Quantum of Solace. The last two movies felt forced to me. Suddenly Bond is too old and battered in Skyfall, like we'd skipped a couple of movies in between.  Even worse, once they got the rights to Blofeld and SPECTRE back, everything was jammed into a BCU-everything's connected now! Those Quantum guys and Mr.White? Never mind all that stuff in QoS about how huge and secretive and effective the Quantum organization is because they worked for SPECTRE all along. Silvia? He worked for SPECTRE, too! And Blofeld is totally connected to Bond, it's all connected! Not a single indication given that Quantum or Silvia were actually employees of something larger? Bah. Connected. All of it.

This - it helps, I think, to remember that Donald Grant was supposed to be Bond's opposite number  "one of the best men we've ever had. A homicidal paranoid. Superb material."
