In Topic: Favorite James Bond Soundtrack

20 April 2017 - 02:54 AM

From Russia With Love's score is pretty damned good, especially when you compare it to what we received in Doctor No. James Bond with Bongos has so much retro swag it's not funny. IMO, they couldn't replicate this atmosphere if they tried. Other tracks I really dig are Death of Grant and the Opening Titles. FRWL also introduced the 007 Theme, and I think that counts for a lot. I prefer Barry's other scores, but for a first effort, it's amazing and it immediately set the standard. It only got better from there.

The James Bond Radio podcast recently reviewed the FRWL soundtrack. Highly recommended listening.

I'd be sad if Daniel called it a day. But it wouldn't be wholly surprising considering all the noise he's made over the last 2 years ("slit my wrists" , etc). If we do get one more with Craig it would be a nice bonus, not business as usual.

 

I know for me personally I would feel much less sadness for Craig if I were enthusiastic about his replacement.

Not bad. I would agree with most of his points, although I'm not sure that Craig's Bond has to die in order to complete his journey. I'd argue that he already died at the hands of Moneypenny in the PTS of Skyfall and spent the rest of the movie coming back to life, but that was merely a metaphor to service the 50th anniversary theme of that film. 

 

I do want Craig to end his tenure on a high note. If he can do that, he will be the first Bond (Lazenby and Dalton notwithstanding) whose final film is not his worst. IMHO, of course.

After watching Legion, I really want to see Dan Stevens get a crack at the role. He would have to beef up significantly (although that part probably called for him to look mental - skinny, messed up hair, etc. ) Buff him up, put him back in a tux, and he'll be a worthy successor to Daniel.
