Anyone have anything they're just gutted never happened in the Bond films? Anything from the Bond production that you would've changed? 50 Years of History to play with, what would you change?
- George Lazenby in Diamonds Are Forever. I get that Lazenby was apparently a nightmare to work with, but if he didn't ruin his opportunities and was accepted by the public, then this would've been a done deal. He's not a great actor by all means, but a follow up to On Her Majesty's Secret Service, directed by Peter Hunt, with Telly Savalas going head to head with Bond once more. In a revenge thriller? It's a better imagining of Diamonds Are Forever than say, an unkept Bond chilling out in a bath in Vegas and catching a show or something? I think I could overlook his acting one more time if the film was made with the same kind of attention that Lazenby's only outing turned out to be.
- Pink Floyd doing a Bond theme. In the 70's.
- Moonraker. Jaws.
- For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View To A Kill could've been interesting with a fresh style. Whilst I really do appreciate John Glen, I felt that Bond during the 80's was just too comfortable with itself. Imagine if 80's Bond was more glamorous? Better filmed? Richer in quality? It would've been a nice decade for some fresh blood to the series. Stanley Kubrick? David Lynch? If we had a Lynch film, the chances are we could've had a lovely soundtrack by Angelo Badlamenti. Also, if Dalton was brought in around 1983, well, it would've shaken things up a little.
- The doomed 1993 Bond film. The Dalton film that never was. It's always such a shame it didn't get off the ground.
- Tomorrow Never Lies
- Poor Brozzas films are just plagued with their problems, aren't they? Everything is just off with them. Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day could've all had much more accomplished directors. AND screenwriters. Roger Spottiswood and Michael Apted? Hmmm.
- Vesper Lynd. I mentioned this over in the 'Favorite Daniel Craig Movie' Thread. I find Eva Green rather appalling as an actress. I felt Bonds loss, but I never felt anything for Vesper. She was just there, and a bit boring. A better actress playing Vesper would've complimented the film greatly.
- Quantum of Solace. The writers strike is the main problem all of this kicked off. If only the release was pushed back from November 2008, to November 2009 then yes, it would suck that we would've had to wait 3 years for the Casino Royale follow up, but at the same time. I'm confident we would've had a much less rushed, and a far more better paced film that what we ended up with.
