Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Bond 25 and with Danial Craig rumoured to be calling it a day after this, this could be a cracker.

I rate Boyle as a director, so I've got high hopes.

Sadly, every time a new Bond is released, it makes the challenge of watching every Bond film back to back on a weekend even harder

But didn't they tie off the entire series arc in Spectre? I thought that was his last film. What now? His real parents were behind it the whole time? M never died and she was the real head honcho? Moriarty didn't die in the fall? Where does it end?!

You ask for logic from a Bond Film?

Raises an eyebrow in the style of Roger Moore

Wow that's just sooooo Subverting - Dude!

I am hoping for a much better JB film than Spectre or Skyfall but if not - well Mission Impossible now does Bond much better than Bond, currently Bond is just another Bourne film.

That is why story arcs are sometimes a bad thing.

The Early Bourne films are decent action films IMO.


But yeah - let's keep story arcs out of Bond. Otherwise you return to Sean Connery in a hidden volcano base.

Goldeneye should have been the last Bond, one last hurrah for an aging character (M even calls him out on being a relic). The rest of the Brosnan ones were just awful, and I didn't bother with the rest of the Daniel Craig ones after Casino Royale - modern spy tosh given a Bond lick of paint.

“Good people are quick to help others in need, without hesitation or requiring proof the need is genuine. The wicked will believe they are fighting for good, but when others are in need they’ll be reluctant to help, withholding compassion until they see proof of that need. And yet Evil is quick to condemn, vilify and attack. For Evil, proof isn’t needed to bring harm, only hatred and a belief in the cause.”

Tomorrow Never Dies is the best Brosnan, some of the problems with goldeneye are smoothed out, Brosnan is more comfortable in the role and Jonathan Pryce is superb.

Skyfall was a great film, best Daniel Craig one by far. I liked the way they inverted the typical bond film, all the exotic island locations were near the start of the film and it withdrew to a small more personal location at the end.

I think Tomorrow Never Dies is under rated, especially in light of events in the past few years. It's basically "Fake News" the movie.

Live and Let Die was 10 years after From Russia with Love with about half a dozen movies between them. Do you mean Dr. No?

A little while ago I was trying to come up with a shortlist of not just the best Bond films, but ones that would hit all the most important/iconic events etc. I think I tried to get to 9 to sort of make it 3 trilogies. Only thing is I'm not that familiar with the Connery ones and never found time to sit down and go through them all again. I think I had it down to:

Dr No (not a huge fan but it's the first)
Goldfinger (the one where the laser beam's going up his jaffas)
OHMSS (married, only Lazenby)
Live & Let Die (first Roger Moore, one of the best themes)
The Spy Who Loved Me (best Roger Moore, has Jaws)
Licence to Kill (token Dalton, shows a personal side to Bond)
GoldenEye (Brosnan, one last job in a changing world)

“Good people are quick to help others in need, without hesitation or requiring proof the need is genuine. The wicked will believe they are fighting for good, but when others are in need they’ll be reluctant to help, withholding compassion until they see proof of that need.

I love me some Danny Boyle, and I really enjoy Craig as Bond (granted some of the movies have been poor, Spectre being one of the worst).

Put me in the hopeful category.

I recommend Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Casino Royale, Live and let Die, and You Only Live Twice as required viewing but not necessarily in that order.

Connery: Dr. No, From Russia With Love and Goldfinger

Moore: Live and Let Die (the duel between Bond and Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun is good, but the rest of the film leaves much to be desired, despite Christopher Lee's performance). Personally not a huge fan of Moore's Bond as he doesn't match the character from the books, at all, especially in the later films. Also, in one of his last films, he was older than the father of the actress who was playing the love interest, which is a bit weird.

Dalton: Licence to Kill

Brosnan: Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies

Craig: Casino Royale and Skyfall

Conversely Roger Moore is by far my favourite Bond, and I'm not ashamed to admit I even enjoy Moonraker...

Another boring Bond movie? I stopped watching the 007 series when Brosnan left. They should revitalize the setting with fondly remembered former characters. How about this idea:


The Adventures of Xenia Onatopp

This series will encompass sixty-nine episodes with a running time of ca. ninety minutes. Xenia Onatopp (Golden Eye, 1995, Female Villain) will work in each episode for a different crime syndicate which will try to rule the world. In addition to this, she will be chased by various 00 agents who will all suffer a humiliating death between her murderous thighs. Despite her skill, at the end of each and every episode the world will be saved by the scared ´Bond-Girl´ just because the 00 agent has his hands full at the moment. Onatopp will form tag-teams in some episodes with other female villains such as Bambi, Thumper, Pussy Galore and Fatima Blush who will also want to get physical with those smug british agents.
At the end of episode sixty-nine, Xenia will kill 007 to get revenge for nearly killing her in Golden Eye (RETCON!, her injury was just a flesh wound). Then she marries Domino Petachi (Bond Girl) and retires from being a regular henchwoman for global crime syndicates and starts to work as a freelance assassin.

The main themes will still be there: Exotic places, car/bike/ski/plane/locomotive chases, explosions, gadgets, suits, beautiful women, femme fatales and insufferable instances of product placement.

They started out OK, but the one with the invisible Aston Martin in Iceland was no good.

It's interesting going back and watching the Connery films, before the formula quite set in; they're not "gritty", but they're nowhere near the levels the franchise got to in the 70s and 80s. I'm still quite fond even of Moonraker, because as a 7-year-old, space shuttles were cool.

Agreed. Giant Space Laser was just a rehash of Diamonds are Forever and Goldeneye, the theme song was absolutely awful (doesn't help it was followed by Casino Royale which had an amazing theme song) and the beginning setup of Bond being captured and tortured, with the implication that he might have broken and given up names was wasted as he still ended up with all the gadgets he'd need to clear his name rather than have to go more basic and without support.
