He's hardly going to say "the script is worse than Quantum of Solace", but, yeah, will watch. I don't give a monkeys about gadgets though, really.

Skyfall appears to be the title, Javier Bardem to play the villain.

Supposedly there's a scene set in the London underground and the gun barrel poster is apparently referencing that.

looks pretty dope imo, i like the less-frenetic style. not as down on QoS as some folks but it was def too bourney.

omar little, Monday, 21 May 2012 19:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

QoS had some great location choices in that the plot _was_ the location. Unfortunately the bits more reliant on dialogue and emotion were not as good.

I felt like The International, which came out the following year, had some similar issues.

On a random note, I feel like Casino Royale succeeded _despite_ Paul Haggis being one of the screenwriters, because damn, can I not really stand that dude's work.

make two James Bonds, one for people who love the vibe of the books and the early movies, the other for people who enjoy whatever the fuck Roger Moore thought he was doing

thus spake darraghthustra (Noodle Vague), Monday, 18 November 2013 09:29 (10 months ago) Permalink

Well, I didn't mean they need to revert to late Moore level of buffoonery. But in the early years Moore was still pretty good, and Connery wasn't overtly serious either. The later Connery and early Moore movies are probably the platonic ideal of the cinematic James Bond, they had a good balance of seriousness and rompishness, so I see no problem in taking your blueprint from those.

Except for the moore thing

So yeah, bring back the one-liners!

i'd like some good one-liners and not weird stuff like the ones in skyfall like where he lolled @ the woman being shot

casino royale had plenty of one-liners, not that i can remember any of them?

Yeah. A while ago I rewatched For Your Eyes only, and it was kinda weird to realize that movie had the strongest female protagonist in any Bond movie made before or after it. Not long after that I went to see Skyfall, and it had the rapey boat scene, the aforementioned "just shoot her" scene, plus the Moneypenny subplot with the implication that women aren't cut to be field agents, and the ending where the proper gender order was re-established with a new male M and a Moneypenny behind the secretary desk... Give me your over-the-top crossbow-wielding female avengers and thighs-of-death assassins over this kind of "realism" anyday.

Tuomas, Monday, 18 November 2013 15:26 (10 months ago) Permalink

Yeah totally, all of that is the main reason I really can't imagine ever wanting to watch this again, that and it being eight years long.

Doctor Casino, Monday, 18 November 2013 15:30 (10 months ago) Permalink

I don't know why but I'm again pondering how unfortunate it was that there was an actual Bond film with Christopher Walken and Grace Jones and they fucked it up by having a weak plot

mh, Monday, 18 November 2013 15:33 (10 months ago) Permalink

tbh there isnt any suggestion throughout craig's tour of duty that he's cut out to be a field agent himself, it's three movies of disaster upon disaster.
