James Bond Series

Post  Guest on Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:57 pm

New casting info on Bond 23. Do spies often deal with their superiors' superiors? I am so used to only M, I never gave it much thought she (& he previously) had to deal with the higher ups. I remember in Casino Royale she had to deal with the House of ......Lords? Parliament? For a specific questioning regarding the mayhem he caused with the small-time bomber (how quickly I forget all the details!). But surely although MI5 (domestically) was only officially recognized in the recent past, those agencies face a greater scrutiny than before. It might seem to add more realism. Anyways, I am excited for the new Bond movie!

M had a run-in with her superiors in Quantum of Solace, as well, ordering her to bring Bond in.

The name for the new film will be announced later today. Any bets on what it will be? Not sure about some of the unused Fleming names mentioned in that article, but I guess the Hildebrand Rarity is as descriptive as Quantum of Solace. Bonus points for a name no-one can turn into a song...

So.

Skyfall.

Sounds more like one of Electronic Arts' Pierce Brosnan-starring video games (like Nightfire) than an actual Bond movie. But while I think the title Quantum of Solace was actually apt for the theme of that movie, I can't imagine what kind of story would fit The Hildebrand Rarity so... yeah.

Eh, I don't really care what it's called. As long as it COMES SOON to the theater. It's been too long since the last one!

Spoiler:
I am really excited about Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes as Bond villains!

Not very Bondy. Should have gone with something like Octofall or Skypussy.

The Queen asks Daniel Craig to star in a short film as James Bond... to open the 2012 Olympic Games. Directed by Danny Boyle. And she may or may not have a cameo in said short.

I have nursed a secret wish that someone important would step in and make sure David Tennant got to run in and light the torch while wearing his skinny suit but this IS SO MUCH COOLER.

This could be a lot of fun.

I like Craig's Bond. My favorite bond is still Connery, but Craig is quite good.

I think Liz is just doing that as an excuse to go grope Daniel Craig.

Poster.

So, we have the producers and Mendes talking up this deep, emotional journey in which M's past comes back to bite Bond... and this is the poster we get? Uninspired, uninteresting, unengaging.

With this poster and the reintroduction of Q and Moneypenny to the series, I am very concerned that this outing is going to be Craig-Bond picking up where Brosnan-Bond left off. Now that he's got his theme music and his gun-barrel opening back there's no real need to prove himself. Hope I'm wrong.

Teaser Trailer I LOVE the use of the music at the end. Please, please let this one be better than QOS.

I have no problems, really, with QoS. But I hope this will be better anyway.

I don't want to jinx it and get my hopes up, but there is a lot of the vibe in this trailer that says to me, "Bond's Dark Knight". The interrogation room, the crazy haired psycho silhouetted by fire, that shot of M at the head of a column of flag-draped coffins.... The poster may be completely uninspired and off-putting, but this trailer looks like the complete opposite. Given the continuity the producers are trying to work between Craig's movies, it's entirely possible that they might be able to give Bond the same emotional heft that Nolan gave Batman.

My big problem with QoS was the Michael Bay editing, which took away from some absolutely stunning photography. It became less of a problem on blu-ray because you can get a more in your field of vision in that format. Still keep the action sequences from inducing seizures this time and keep the fonts.

Well that and the opening credits that looked like the cover of a 70's prog rock conpect album.

Ralph Finnes+Bond=fuckign Badass!

The cast of Skyfall is just nuts--Bardem, Fiennes, Whishaw, McCrory, Finney, and Harris plus the already awesome Craig and Dench. Yes please.

I just watched that teaser trailer and reverted to full-on squeeing fangirl. Amazing.

I also had no problem with Quantum of Solace, especially the DC-3 (*sniff*) but I want this to be Casino Royale-level awesome. I got all breathless just watching the trailer.

SKYFALL TRAILERS!!!!!!!

Oh my GOD. Sam Mendes is just cribbing from Nolan's "Dark Knight Trilogy" playbook left and right. Derailing trains, an out of shape hero, and a villain with a bad dye job. Even "Think on your sins" has a bit of a "Rises" vibe with Gordon stewing on the Big Lie.

AND IT LOOKS TOTALLY AMAZEBALLS.

The bit with Q looks phenomenal, and I kinda love that the great big leak of MI6 agent identities happens via YouTube.

Mendes has totally sold himself as a Bond director. Except for Bardem's hair. That shit's not right.

Now I can't see a top of the train fight without thinking of Archer. "If you had a helicopter up there...".

But so much yes!
