    Roger Deakins is god.

    The countryside shots and Shanghai nightclub/skyscraper stuff is amazing. This is going to be classic Bond.

    I am really REALLY excited about Bond #23. Really after Goldeneye I had lost faith that the series could be done well any longer and had written Bond off. That all changed with Casino Royale (no not the one with Woody Allen) and QoS. I really like Daniel Craig and actually think he is even better than Sean Connery was as Bond. I do like how much they got away from the heavy reliance of gadgets and have yet to bring in Q to the story of this rebooted Bond universe. I also like how it seems to have taken a darker tone than the Bond 1-20 did as well.

    ....oh and the return of the DB5 as Bond's car is just awesome! :D

    Q is in this one I think.

    Craig as Bond is just too different from Connery as Bond to say one is better than the other

    unless you think horrible camp and misogyny can't be counted as positive attributes in which case yeah Craig is a better Bond

    Connery is certainly better at delivering horrible horrible puns

    He gets a high five

    Craig is a good bond

    but he does look a bit old

    Thinking about it, nearly all action heroes these days seem a bit old

    strange

    Has it really been 4 years since QoS?

    Not that I'm complaining, but I expected MGM to have a faster turn around than that. I'm glad this one took a bit longer.

  • SnicketysnickSnicketysnick Why is there a G in night? Registered User regular
    Well, they did almost go bust in between, it was touch and go if this Bond would happen at all for a while. I'm glad it did though, looks like it will be excellent.

    I wonder how long it will be before we get to hear the theme song? Casino Royale had a great one, but they really missed the mark with QoS, which is a shame because there are some little riffs in there that show the potential it had :( On that note (har har) best Bond theme? Goldeneye/License to Kill hands down for me.

    Today's action heroes are a tougher, more grizzled breed. Gone is the day of the 20 year old pretty boy who can murder a small armies worth of goons.

    Kinda like it this way

    I recently watched all the Bonds in sequence, so I'm well up for more 007. I think that Daniel Graig is a good Dalton-esqe Bond, but I imagine he'll lighten up a bit now he's done with his revenge arc.

    If your favourite Bond isn't Timothy Dalton you can go to hell.

    Dalton was really underrated.

    Really, I think pierce has had the weakest run.

    Goldeneye was great, but everything else was rubbish.

    Even Moore's run was, while stupid, was fun.

    You are right about the song though.

  • Rhesus PositiveRhesus Positive Damn these electric sex pants! Registered User regular
    The worst Bond is Moore, using the metric of "stuff I can most vividly remember from the films". His run seemed to have the highest concentration of stupid compared to a relatively low level of badass.

    At least Moonraker was laughably awful, I have no desire to watch On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

    Lazenby sounds like he's an actor pretending to be Bond every time he delivers a line.

    Which I mean is true but not what you should be going for.

    Anyway who wants to come over and play some Slappers Only mode on my old Nintendo 64, cause now I am in the mood.

    The only Connery misogyny that really made me uncomfortable was the clinic scene in Thunderball (which also had that ridiculous fast-motion fight on the boat, cementing it as the least good Connery film). I thought that the worst film for portrayal of women was The Man With the Golden Gun, with that fool of a female agent.

    Dalton's two movies are really great to watch back to back.

    Him and Felix save the world high five, Felix gets killed and bond goes on a revenge rage.

    Amazing.

  • SwissLionSwissLion We are beside ourselves! Registered User regular
    Blake it has long been established that even though he is the Australian Bond, Lazenby cannot be defended.

    Moore's run is great because it has so much of the absurdity that I love from the Bond films. A View to a Kill is so ridiculous I can't not love it.

    While not a Moore film, one of my favourite parts of any Bond film is the entire ending sequence of Thunderball, to give you an idea of my Bond opinions.

    Giant Underwater spear-gun and Knife fight which goes even more nuts when sharks get introduced, and then the villain is killed when his goddamned Hydrofoil crashes

    Also yesyesyes,

    Nothing but Throwing Knives
    Slappers only
    Final Destination.

    Thunderball has underwater battles and pet sharks

    Also Domino is one of my favourite Bond girls.

    the best bond is clearly connery in dr no

    the first half of that movie is so good because it establishes so well the kinds of things bond does without actually explaining shit

    it just shows you, this is how bond works, this is what he does, he's very good at it

    then the second half has a tank with a flamethrower

    Oh my god I had forgotten that everything about the effects on the Hydrofoil fight was amazing.

    Hydrofoil just booking it across the water, every view out the windows of the helm-cockpit-bridge place going fucking nuts.

    I Love Thunderball.

    Me and my friends, as all teenage nerds did in the late nineties played a lot of goldeneye.

    I was reasonable but compared to my friend I very rarely won, but still, it honed some skills.

    Any way I was over at some friends that went to a different school. I saw the 64 and suggested the game. Everyone was all, watch out for cameron! He's really good. Anyway I thought something was up when I was the only who didn't turn auto aim off.

    It was a free for all, first to twenty.

    I died once and the closest next to me had five kills.

    It was then decided that I was trying to hussle them. So then it was everyone against me.

    Again I questioned their skills when they complained when I demanded that it was to be lasers only.

    They didn't realise that a headshot killed in one shot with a laser.

    I won the round again 20-4.

    Then I wasn't allowed to play any more.

    Thunderball was aces. That and You Only Live Twice are the best Bond films.

    for me it's this scene from goldfinger

    i guess they thought it was hot in the sixties but it's too borderline-rapey for me to handle

    Will you guys judge me if I admit that now I am listening to my James Bond theme songs album?

    Which is tacitly also admitting that I've owned a James Bond theme songs album since high school.
