In Topic: What Bond movie do you feel like watching?

01 August 2017 - 03:56 PM

Dove, might I suggest those two at the tail end of your marathon?  I once watched Never Say Never Again after Skyfall and it worked well with the new M transition.  I can imagine the segue from SPECTRE is only better as Bond goes on hiatus for a while (you even get Blofeld back.)  CR'67 works after that as Bond is called out of retirement, both films have Herb Albert music, and it's nice to come full circle with the serious Bonds by looping back to Connery and then to the spoof of Fleming's debut.


In Topic: BOND 25 confirmed for 2019 release

What an embarrassment of a publication

Anyone remember the story that Bond 24 was supposed to be Devil May Care? 


In Topic: BOND 25 confirmed for 2019 release

So, I'm not advocating either of these things happen, but to address two other topics that pop up every so often ...

 

Michael Caine is too old to play M at 84, but Martin Campbell is okay to direct Bond at 73?

 

(For the record, I want to keep Fiennes, Judi Dench was 77 whiile filming Skyfall, and EON has never hired anyone as old as Campbell direct Bond.)

What is the cause of this renewed Nolan speculation?

 

He was asked about it recently and said he'd be interested but only if EON needed him.  Someone on this thread suggested that meant for a rebooted Bond 26, not 25.


In Topic: Next Villain (If Waltz/Blofeld does not return)

With Craig returning, I'd like to see them finish the Blofeld story arc.  Include Monica Bellucci.

 

I'm intrigued by the Spang Brothers idea. 

 

At first, I liked the driverless Aston Martin, but then I remembered Knight Rider.
