Aside from the presence of major characters, neither bear much resemblance to their source material in terms or story or structure.


Accordingly, updated.

I suspect we may be at cross-purposes here.

Once [...] the original ideas become crap

That's probably not going to happen, because no core idea is bad. Not even DIE ANOTHER DAY. The core idea there is a villain who wants to reunite the two Koreas, and is as much of a danger to the North as he is to the South. It was the execution of that idea that failed, but with a few tweaks to the storyline, it could have been significantly better.


I always thought that DAD was great until they introduced the; ice palace, Icarus the satellite, and the DNA story line.
I thought Icarus was too Bat-Man Forever and corny, the diamonds was enough of a throw back to DAF
I just wish they dropped the whole DNA thing altogether and focused more about the diamonds aspect of the story and the villains overall plot.

and if they were going to do a story about North Korea and have all these throw backs to previous 007 films, how did they not end up using the "hotel of doom" as a villain's lair?
shame on them for missing it. it just seems like it was made for a bond film and would have been better IMO then a ice palace or airplane

what is this forum about haha oh yes story ideas

well i can't think of any off the top of my head but i hope and i believe one day they will create a story that will explain how bond got his licence to kill back which they never explain in GE

the idea about water thinker is kinda batman begins
the idea about the swiss francs is a little goldfingerish but i like it and it sounds bondish and would seem original cause i don't believe they have done a money laundering plot yet

I believe it's implied at the end of LICENCE TO KILL that M has been in touch with Felix to offer Bond a new job.

One idea of thought about - and I am sure it's not new - would be a movie where Felix Leiter and Bond work very closely together for the entire film. I think this would have work quite well for Quantum or perhaps Skyfall ... It would show the development of their relationship and how they became such close friends as bond's career went on. While we certainly see the alliance begin in CR and continue on in QoS, it's certainly not clear to me that they have become close friends.

My guess is the producers probably wouldn't ever consider this but who knows.

Cheers

Being how I'am Canadian. I would like to see the return of Stana Katic who played Corrin Veneau, a Canadian agent and Yusef's target in QOS. A film featuring Canadian would be even better although as for as a story goes. I can only think of; Bond meeting Stana at a hockey game and she sneaks them the American boarder to meet Felix Leiter or the Alberta oil sands.

I would not mind a story involving Canadians, just not her. As far as I'm concerned, I'm kind of finished with the Quantum story and the characters. Nothing personal to you, I'd just rather see more newer and original ideas with fresh new characters rather than bringing a character from an old story arc. Kind of sounds redundant since Felix can be brought back, but whatever haha.

Back when QUANTUM OF SOLACE was released, a lot of people thought that BOND 23 would see Bond in Canada. The problem with this is that Corinne performs a very specific function in the story - Bond gets closure on Vesper's death by preventing somebody else from falling into Yusuf's honeytrap. As good-looking as Katic is, bringing her back may potentially jeopardise this.

I'd very much like to see Stana Katic return to the series as well. It was a complete waste of her talent to have her cast in a role that, in all honesty, could have been played by any actress currently working in the industry, or even by a model with virtually no acting experience.

I don't think bringing her back necessitates a storyline where Bond is still searching for closure on Vesper. That ship has sailed. Her character could be made entirely different from Vesper, with their only similarity being a connection to Yusef, which would not really be an issue anymore given that he's in MI6 custody and would no longer be a factor.

Will Bond ever defuse a nuclear bomb again? and if so, how long until it will happen again?

I completely agree, and as I stated previously I feel the Quantum story arc is finished (for now) Let's move on to something fresh. She is a very beautiful looking woman, so I wouldn't having her back as a new character at all haha.

It would be fantastic for EON to bring her back as another character. It's not like it's never been done before (Charles Gray, Maud Adams, Joe Don Baker to name a few), and she had so little screen time in Quantum of Solace, so I could see it happening with little problem. I just find it to be a shame that they wasted her talent on a part that could literally have been played by anyone.

Exactly what I was going to say with Gray, Maud, and Joe etc. Maybe if they expanded Quantum Of Solace her character would have done the same as well, but I doubt it since Forster was so picky about having the film be 2 Hours +. Her role could've been palyed anyone, you're absolutely right I remember sitting in the theater wondering why the actress from Castle was in the film for literally 2 minutes. If (and hopefully) EON brings her back as a fresh new character of course. It would be great.

Also, Bond NEEDS to go to Canada. They've been to the United States, why not Canada? The British are Canadians are buddies, I'm still surprised that after 50 years, Canada was not a location ONCE, yet the US was several times. I could see Bond cruising down Lakeshore or downtown Oakville,

Canada's royal theme is, "God safe the Queen." Then again I'm sure we're not the only country with the Queen still on their money.
