My dark horse suggestion to play Bond is Michael Shannon...


I'm sure i'm alone on this, but then again i was alone on Craig back in the early noughties ;)



EDIT: probably not gonna happen for me this time round though, as he's currently 42... Oh well!

Logan was awesome and executed exactly what it tried to be. Similar to Fury Road.

Highest praise - now want to see it even more.

I love that they've moved into dramatic territory and away from comic book adventure. Craig's movies are action-thrillers and that's more exciting than colourful tropes. I hope they don't abandon the rougher edge and darker tone with wit as it's foil, rather than camp gags.


Just ditch the over reliance on constant question: "is he OHMSS or has he had enough of it all?" Stop using this blunt story device as the crowbar to jimmy open his inner workings. About time they did it in a less on-the-nose fashion.

Indeed! It's a crime that they've done this to death before arriving at a YOLT adaptation (which is where SP's ending would naturally lead).


Just like they raped and pillaged Fleming's stories so that almost none could be done faithfully without repetition, they have now exhausted a core theme so that perhaps the best story on this theme, YOLT can't be done without repeated it yet again.


As much as i love Eon and BB etc, they have been remiss to some extent in this regard... Ah, guess i'm grumpy this morning -i need another coffee!
