UPDATED!! Look! Quick! The New James Bond Trailer's Online... For Now!

Merrick here... This is now online in Glorious QuickTime HD & what not. You can find it HERE!

Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here. It's so nice to actually be excited about James Bond again. I really loved CASINO ROYALE, and now I'm eagerly awaiting QUANTUM OF SOLACE. I think Daniel Craig has made the role his own, and the idea of a direct sequel to the Bond film prior is bizarre considering how fluid this series has always treated the idea of continuity. Will this one live up to the reboot that made me believe James Bond still had a place on the bigscreen? Check out the trailer and tell me what you think:

And, yes, I do feel like I got in a time machine and went back to 1989. New James Bond. New Indiana Jones. Joker vs. Batman. Ghostbusters returning with the original cast. It's very strange the way all of this timed out, and I'm not sure what it says about Hollywood that it would all synchronize so closely like this. Anyway... November 7th. Hurry. The. Fuck. Up.

    They've copied the Bourne

    by kwisatzhaderach

    Ultimatum shot where Bourne jumps through the window and the camera follows hims, only this time it's Bond on a bike jumping onto a boat. Lame.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:39 a.m. CST

    Bourne..sorry I mean Bond is back!!

    by LockesLOSTkidney


  • June 30, 2008, 4:40 a.m. CST

    Copying Bourne...

    by Finding Forrestal EXACTLY what the Bond franchise needs to do. This looks very promising.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:40 a.m. CST


    by drew mcweeny

    ... well, it's for the game, but considering Aykroyd and Ramis co-wrote it, and everyone including Murray is back with new material, it's as close as we're getting to a sequel.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:40 a.m. CST


    by kwisatzhaderach

    No, they should be doing something original.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:41 a.m. CST

    Oh, yeah...

    by Finding Forrestal

    ...I forgot about that. It's about time we had a sweet Ghostbusters video game.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:43 a.m. CST

    Relevant again!


    Bond was bloody boring with Brosnan now it's Blumin Brilliant with... Craig<P>Does look very Bourne but in a positive non Shaky way. All the Daniel haters have swallowed their tongues.

    Oh you mean that franchise that wanted to be James Bond.....gotcha!

  • June 30, 2008, 4:44 a.m. CST


    by Finding Forrestal

    We're talking about Bond here. Originality doesn't factor into the equation.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:48 a.m. CST

    Yeah jagga

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    It is looking a bit Brosnan bond there, and I've never once managed to stay awake through any of those films for some reason. They're just too over the top and superheroish. Laser guarded vaults and the shit, that crap just bores the shit out of me. I like Bourne though, and I liked Casino Royale a lot. Here's hoping it's still 24esque and all.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:50 a.m. CST

    That looks awesome

    by MrGaunt

  • June 30, 2008, 4:54 a.m. CST

    Looks good

    by executiverocker

    Very much casino royale 2

  • June 30, 2008, 4:55 a.m. CST

    Looks pretty good

    by photoboy

    I hope it's not too over the top with stupid CGI enhanced stunts, as this looks like it might be sneaking towards that again.<br><br> And it's a bit annoying to see Bond is back out on his own defying M's orders again so soon after DaD did it.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:55 a.m. CST


    by Zappary

    Yeah, it's a bit Bourne, but that looked pretty interesting.

  • June 30, 2008, 4:58 a.m. CST

    Don't get some of the complaints about the action. Yeah some of it looked bigger, but it didn't look more CGI or fake.

    Fuck YEAH !!!!!!!!!!!!

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    What a fuckin great year for movies. Who knows, Bond may beat them all.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:06 a.m. CST

    I don't say stuff like this very often...

    by DerLanghaarige

    ...(not like other people on the internet), but Casino Royale was a dumb movie for dumb people.<br> The Brosnan-Bonds at least didn'T try to hide that they were silly, even if they were THAT silly, that nobody oculd enjoy them. But Casino Royale? Was the same shit. Dull action, Bond turned into an invincible Actionhero (Still fighting with a nail in the shoulder) and people think that the Torture scene was cruel and intensne, but NOT borrowed from a Jackass-episode, because the press kit said so.<br> Sorry, but Casino Royale is one of my most hated movies of the last few years (I only hate 300 more) and this doesn't look any better. For the next reboot they should at least look for a good actor.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:09 a.m. CST

    Whether or not the movie sucks

    by kgerm

    That's a damn slick trailer.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:10 a.m. CST

    P.S.: Bond movies shouldn't follow trends.

    by DerLanghaarige

    Everytime they copied trends, the movies sucked.<br> Blaxploitation: Live And Let Die - Bad movie<br> SciFi: Moonraker - Bad Movie<br> Violent revenge-action: License To Kill - Bad movie<br> Silly over the top no-brain action: The Brosnan movies - bad, bad, bad (But not Brosnan's fault.)<br> "realism": Casino Royale - *bangs head on the next wall*

  • June 30, 2008, 5:11 a.m. CST

    it looks promising but still have reservations

    by zapano

    the closer they keep it the classic sixties feel, the better. they should focus on character and tension and not just roll out action scene after action scene.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:14 a.m. CST

    Originality is overrated...

    by Finding Forrestal

    All I'm looking for is a tough and charismatic Bond, visceral (and believable) action sequences, and a plot that stays within the conventions of the franchise without becoming self-referential. A simple revenge plot will do just nicely, with Bond working his way up the chain of command of some SPECTRE-like organization. A few cold-blooded executions would be nice. Keep the women gorgeous, the locations exotic, and try to subvert our expectations every once and awhile (e.g. "Shaken or stirred?" "Does it look like I care?"). Seriously, we're not reinventing the wheel here. Keep it simple.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:17 a.m. CST

    Wait...what? Ghostbusters returning?

    by Bass Ackwards

    Wheres that news, I missed a headline somewhere.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:18 a.m. CST

    "Borrowed From JACKASS"?

    by drew mcweeny

    You mean the scene that is taken directly from the original Ian Fleming novel written in the fucking '50s? That one? Pretty sure they didn't borrow that from an MTV show that's not even ten years old.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:19 a.m. CST

    Looks the same as Casino Royale. Which is bad.

    by NoDiggity

    Why is it that the moment a character on screen shows up, all cold-eyed, with the killer-stare, the fanboys line up to call it the best thing ever? Yes, I see, Bond is cold-eyed, and he has the killer-stare. You don't wanna mess with Bond because he is BAD ASS. Yeah, we get it. He's even more BAD ASS than he was in Casino Royale, because now he's pissed because he lost his One True Love or some pathetic cliche excuse to be all Cold Eyed and BAD ASS. And it looks like Bond is going rogue for two movies in a row? Great. Will M forgive him at the end just because he flirts with her a little? This is the kind of action hero I root for the bad guys to take down with extreme prejudice. Bond has always had a tinge of right wing, extra-legal nastiness to him, and this seems to be the most right-wing and nasty of the Bonds we have seen so far. Yahoo! Let's worship Thuggish Assassins in Suits! It's just one sign of the end of Democracy as we know it.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:19 a.m. CST

    Oh whoops

    I had a bit of a Bond threesome

    by tomdolan04

    the other night. Dr No is still a classic, Goldeneye has a firm place in my heart (it's fun and epic nights on the N64 game make it more memorable) but jesus christ Die Another Day - fecking terrible. <p> Remember it wasn't great in the cinema but time hasn't been kind one bit. If this were any other franchise that movie would have killed it deader the dead

  • June 30, 2008, 5:23 a.m. CST

    Looks the same as Casino Royale.....which is GREAT

    by Da B-Meister

    Casino Royale had its share of slower moments here and there, but it was still a phenomenal Bond flick and Craig is superb in the role of the famous super-spy.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:24 a.m. CST

    Die Another Day .... Awful.

    by NoDiggity

    I mean, I can see a return to "serioiusness" being welcomed by the fans of the franchise, but man, did they have to suck all the sense of fun out of the series in the name of seriousness?

  • June 30, 2008, 5:27 a.m. CST


    by Finding Forrestal

    I'm okay with them referencing the conventions of the franchise. Saying "Bond... James Bond," drinking a vodka martini, the Q scene, the obligatory dressing-down from M, etc. I was referring to instances like in DIE ANOTHER DAY where they referenced the previous films in highly specific ways.

    by Bass Ackwards

    I actually remember a Craig interview where he said the jokes were being upped for this flick. Not sure if that's good or bad news. I'm looking forward to it just to see what the director of Finding Neverland is bringing to the Bond table.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:30 a.m. CST

    Must stay strong...

    by Stollentroll

    ...must not be exited for Bond...always a fucking let down...

    Yeehaah! Looks like TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION!!!

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    James muthafuckin' Bond is back to pwn those shaky cam movies commonly referred to as the Bourne trilogy. Fuck those. <p>Casino Royale was great fun and had some great dialogues (train!). This one looks promising as well.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:34 a.m. CST

    Casino Royale

    by kungfuhustler84

    a great example of how to revamp a classic character by keeping the old parts that work and immortalized the story, while making little changes to adapt to a new audience. And I don't much think they are bringing back too much of the last one. This looks a lot different to me, which is great. Although another parkour scene would be the cat's pajamas.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:34 a.m. CST

    I'm a big Bond fan...

    by The Grug

    and Casino Royale was far-and-away my favourite of the series, this looks like "Casino Royale 2" and that's fine by me - looking forward to this one!

  • June 30, 2008, 5:35 a.m. CST

    I heard rumour....on this site....

    by emeraldboy

    that Al pacino is in this. is that true? and leona Lewsi is doing the theme song. producers dumped amy winebar.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:37 a.m. CST

    I've just watched that like ten times in a row.

    by Shermdawg

    The behind the vehicle shots with the bike and car chase is insane! It's like straight out of a videogame......kinda like that fps shot from Royale. Awesome, awesome, stuff. <br><br> And to think some of us, including me, were once crapping on Craig and rebooting the series. Boy were we fucking wrong. <br><br> Nov.7 can't come soon enough. I can't remember the last time I was this excited about a film. I miss the feeling.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:38 a.m. CST

    The main criticism seems to be that Eon

    by emeraldboy

    are rushing this film into theatres. They seem to be in a hurry for some reason. There is a lot of controversy attached to this one.

    A Live Action Venture Brothers movie

    by kungfuhustler84

    with all the hilarious comedy, paired with some Bond style action from Brock, would be incredible. Seeing Bond kick ass like that just made me think of the possibilities of a live action Brock Samson. Can someone agree with me? Anyone? That's cool. It's not even six in the morning yet. I can wait.

    Quantum of Solace

    by manxsmiffy

    That looks the dogs bollocks. Can't wait to see this one

  • June 30, 2008, 5:46 a.m. CST

    I understand the liking for Craig's Bond.

    by NoDiggity

    I do. I really do. It's a variation of the Connery Bond, where you identify with a character who seems to have no fear. It's liberating to vicariously participate in being Fearless. But there's something about this Bond that bothers me, and it's the fact that the element of being SCARY (Feared) is way up there, and I'm more afraid of Craig's Bond than of the villains.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:51 a.m. CST

    Okay Moriarty, I got your point.

    by DerLanghaarige

    But there are much more frightening things you can make with a man's balls than punching him in a funny way with a rope. I know episodes of Alias, that had much scarier torturing scenes than the one in Casino Royale.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:53 a.m. CST

    This year's Quantum of Fucking Solace!

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    Isn't it?

  • June 30, 2008, 5:54 a.m. CST

    Hmm, the Bond torturing scene was pretty scary, imho.

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    Seriously. Can't think of any ALIAS episode that had a more terrifying torture scene.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:55 a.m. CST

    Apart from Goldeneye

    by zapano

    Brosnan films were woeful. Still think bringing in big name directors would be a great idea. Directors like Scorsese, Spielberg and Tarantino have all expressed at one point or another a desire to direct a Bond fim. They tried it with Mission Impossible but then went for directors who would say yes to tom cruise all too easily.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:58 a.m. CST

    I hope this will be rated R. Or NC-17.

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    And please: never, NEVER let Quentin fuckhead Tarantino direct a James Bond movie. N-E-V-E-R!

    i loved the reboot, nothing was going to change my love of this franchise, it's pretty much bulletproof. I loved the Bronson era, I'm loving the Craig era. it's exactly the breath of fresh air the franchise needed. this movie looks great. roll on novemeber!

  • June 30, 2008, 6:01 a.m. CST

    Your Voice of Reason

    by Alex Childress

    1) The Bond movies re-vamp and re-invent themselves to fit the style of the times, and Craig has said that the film will have a bit more humor than the last one; 2) You're going to get the brainless action and cool shots instead of the character development in the trailer cause that's what trailer's do. If they showed 1 1/2 minutes of Bond talking, they would sell fewer tickets. 3) In my humble opinion, there's nothing scarier than having my nuts beaten mercilessly by a 5lb. knotted rope. Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks and all, but that would make me talk. And that's the highlight of the new Bond films - no more super death lasers and shark pits. Sometimes action/adventure is as simple as a man who really wants to hurt you.

  • June 30, 2008, 6:02 a.m. CST


    by JimBobCooter

    I agree! Casino Royale was really great. But the villain was WEAK! I know he was accurate to the book and supposed to be second tier to the intrigue... but I want to see someone who truly outflanks Bond. Not necessarily over-the-top Goldfinger megalomanic yet... but definitely someone where you worry Bond won't succeed in his mission, let alone be hurt.

  • June 30, 2008, 6:04 a.m. CST

    by henrydalton

    But then, Casino Royale bored me to tears with its never-ending third act, so I've got no investment in the franchise storyline anymore.

  • June 30, 2008, 6:39 a.m. CST


    by raw_bean

    you complain about unrealistic action-hero stuff like fighting with a nail in your shoulder, but seem to be in favour of some elaborate and ridiculous moustache-twirling-villain torture when the film was trying to make the specific point that such things are silly when it's 'the simplest thing in the world to cause a man more pain than you can imagine'. If you think that was such a non-terrifying thing, let's see you volunteer to have your balls whipped with a three kilogram lump of very solid hemp.

  • June 30, 2008, 6:40 a.m. CST

    Daniel Craig............

    by ChiefRoberts

    ........IS James Bond! The guy radiates badass! Casino Royale was the best Bond film for years and brought it back to it's raw, edgy roots. QOS looks to be even better.

    by toxicbuddha

    I am with you on this one Mori. Craig owns in the role and a venerable franchise returns to glory. I loved Casino Royale and it looks like I am gonna have a major crush on Solace as well.

  • June 30, 2008, 6:44 a.m. CST

    DerLanghaarige.... you dont get it...

    by Uridium

    Ok, so you seem to want more scary ball torture (I'm not judging you, but you may want to talk to a professional about this), but you fail to grasp that this scene is taken from the book 'Casino Royale'. Who cares if you see more things on Alias.... When converting a book to a film its usually considered correct to transfer the key scenes as they were in the book.

    What a whiny, "superior" being you are. You hated Casino Royale, did you? And 300? Good for you. Trouble is, the public have spoken. Now, I know "no one liked the Sound of Music except the public", but this kind of Bond is here to stay, and I'm glad. What a depressing, disappointing world you must live in...

  • June 30, 2008, 7:01 a.m. CST

    Really using that title, huh?

    by Drath

    It sounds like a character from Star Trek. I'm surprised it has not been changed. It's not as bad as Beyond the Ice, but it's still not a Bond title, and some things about the formula you do not fuck with.

    LangeHaarige is a dumb poster for dumb people

    by The Octagoner

    The torture scenes in Alias were more effective than Casino Royale's? Did you see some unaired episode of Alias the rest of us missed, because that show had the lamest, most ineffectual 'tortures' ever. A box of needles? Ooooh. Casino Royale was smart, visceral, and revived a franchise that by all rights should have turned into a relic some time in the mid-eighties. And for the few on here complaining about Bond's characterization: Fleming's Bond was always a thug in a suit, a misogynistic assassin. He was practically a rapist for fuck's sake. Hate it or like it, don't complain that this isn't Bond.

    Forster's cinematographer...

    by DC Films

    ...May end up being the star here. The burnt out stuff looks fantastic: back to the 60's Bond, but with Craig giving a gritty edge - somewhat like a 60's/70's French gangster pick - or just a little like the French Connection. It's fair enough that a teaser focuses on the action, but there's promise of darker character exploration too. I certainly hope so.

    Bond on the Rampage? Count me in!

    by max314

    It's difficult to find new and compelling storylines for every new Bond film. That said, this looks like it's doing a pretty good job.<br><br>The idea of Bond going solo on a revenge mission with his own orgainsation trying to thwart his efforts contains obvious echoes of the BOURNE series. But I'm more than interested to see how this all works within the context of the Bond franchise.<br><br>While CASINO ROYALE was a very good Bond film, it did suffer from certain flaws, particularly during the first half of the second act. My hope is that QUANTUM OF SOLACE will be able to rectify those wrongs to produce a top notch Bond.

    Are they bringing back SPECTRE?!

    by Royston Lodge

    From that interrogation scene it looks like they're bringing back SPECTRE. If they can make SPECTRE nice and sinister again, a la OHMSS (my personal favourite Bond film), it would be quite an achievement since other Bond films made SPECTRE so cartoony. Will we see a reimagining of Ernst Stavros Blofeld? Will they continue with continuity eventually have remake OHMSS with Bond getting married? Will Blofeld have his white kitty cat? Will it lose all its hair and be named Mr. Bigglesworth? I'm trés excited about the prospects...

    Old Bond flicks versus New....

    by pdennett316

    I loved Casino Royale, thoroughly entertaining, great action and Craig was excellent. <p> I HATE all the old Bond movies, they just never interested me and were camp and annoying beyond belief. The conventions that fans love, I loathe. <p> The Bourne movies are the best thing to happen to the Bond franchise in a long time, forced them to re-evaluate their stale old quirks. CR was action packed and fun without being too much of a lift of Bourne. This one has shots blatently ripped from the 3rd Bourne flick, so at least they're acknowledging their influences. <p> Oh, and Bourne would easily dispatch Bond, even in CR Bond was lost without his OTT gadgets such as the portable defrib. and Poison kit in his car. Bond is a pussy compared to Bourne, you'd find Bond afterwards with a broken neck and a rolled up magazine jammed up his pooper. FACT!

    Won't be sucked in like last time

    by Emixxary

    I remember being psyched with the trailer for Casino Royale... Seemed very gritty, raw.. HE dirves around the corner, there is a girl in the road, he swerves, barely misses her, and then a spectacular crash! ....of course when I saw the movie, I saw this device created a giant plot hole. OK his girl is grabbed when she leaves the empty restaurant (they could of just brabbed him too), Craig gives chase, and in the car chase, the girl is suddenly in the middle of the road. Is it so they could lose him? nope, they were needing to capture him to torture him for info. Well atleast the girl was expendable right? nope, they needed to torture her for info as well. So as they need both of them alive, one is placed in the middle of a road, hopefully to cause a wreck, and the other ifs forced into a spectacular wreck.. yep that makes sense. sorry to go off there, but I hear such praise for Casino Royalle, and I thought it was fun, but had such plot holes in it that it really ruined it for me.

    Bourne vs Bond

    by toadkillerdog

    Damon really grew up in the role. The last movie being the most believable - because of the age of the character and the obvious weathering Damon/Bourne underwent. But Bond is not Bourne or vice versa. Bourne has almost no personality. He is simply a rogue robot who wants to be left alone. Bond, is almost a sociopath, almost but not quite. But he will sacrifrice anyone to obtain his goals, whether they be Queen and country or his own. As for who would win a physical battle, since a tie is out, I give it to Bond. Bourne has greater fighting skills than Bond, but Bond is more ruthless, and resourceful, and ultimately, he will find a way to win. He always does. <p>Craig is fantastic as Bond, the second best all-time to Connery. <p> The early Connery Bond's had the menace and the charm, and not many gadgets, if any at all. The more popular the movies became, the more gadgets were involved, and the less menacing Bond became. Craig has restored the menace - he still needs to work on the charm though.

    I was with EON on their decision to cast Daniel Craig, I was with them when they decided to re-vamp the series, changing the global scenario from Communism to Terrorism. I was impressed and delighted with Martin Campbell's direction of "Casino Royale," and was waiting to see how the next film would play out. The rumors started pouring in, this one picks up 30 minutes after CR left off, more action, great villain. I thought it was too good to be true, but the trailer succeeded in confirming I will be there front and center on Nov. 7th and will be prepared to be blown away!!!!!!

    The Bond franchise seems to be patterning itself after onscreen Batmans over the years. We had our farcical 1970's Bonds who escaped from some absurdly characterized criminal mastermind and then we had our over the top action Bonds and now we're going back to the dark, gritty, emo Bond.

    by SpencerTrilby

    I'll wait for November before totally blowing my wad, but looks like my reservations about Marc "Neverland" Forster have been at least partially alleviated. Because this teaser looks, sounds and smells fucking neat. <p> Let's just hope the script doesn't blow, and that the 2nd unit work (which looks fantastic) blends perfectly with the character moments. That was the main downside of the recent Bond movies (except those directed by Campbell) and I hope they fixed that. Oh, and no excessive, gimmicky, non-visceral shaky-cam which is a big plus in my book.

    It's simple. Roger Moore was wishy-washy. Pierce Brosnan's version what too goofy, over-the-top, phony complete with cartoon physics. This Bond is bringing tough-guy to the franchise. I don't care if they compare it to Bourne. In fact, that totally works for me especially since it's Bourne minus the wishy-washy poo-pooing the government angle. Hollywood seriously lacks tough-guy characters/actors these days. I say, bring 'em on!

    re: SPECTRE returning

    by Cedar_Room

    this may count as potential SPOILER so beware - but I read that the organisation the guy works for, who have "people everywhere" is SPECTRE-like, but actually called QUANTUM. Daniel Craig said: "QUANTUM is also the name of the organization in the film; a kind of new-age SMERSH". So whilst I would have loved to see an all new badass SPECTRE, with the possibility of a return for Blofeld - I think this idea is really nice and also helps explain the title a bit better. Furthermore, doesn't mean we can't still have a recurring bad guy in the shape of the head of QUANTUM to rival Blofeld for the new reboot(or even cheekily BE Blofeld). Also, for what its worth, I thought this trailer was fantastic and I can't wait for the new film. Casinon Royale was brilliant, I revisited it recently on DVD and I was reminded just how polished that film was - I wasn't even as bothered by that awful theme tune. It is a great Bond film (not to say a great film full stop) and this one is looking just as good.

    I never said that it wouldn't hurt to get your balls hurt...

    by DerLanghaarige that, but that silly rope AND the fact that right in the next scene he was already having sex with the Bondgirl again (Hey, nothing happened) took all seriousness out of the torture. People get their balls crushed like that in every 2nd comedy (and probably every single episode of Jackass). I'm sure non of you thinks that, let's say 'Police Academy', is difficult to watch, because you feel with the people who get their balls kicked,<br> And even IF it was on the novel, so where the killer pigs in 'Hannibal'. Just because it was written in the novel, it doesn't mean it's a good idea. And, what is more important, maybe it was written more convincing there, than it looked like on film.<br> Sorry, even the torturing in the opening credits of 'Die Another Day' was harder than that. (Even if you turn off the sound and don't have to listen to the Madonna song.)

It seems once a James Bond movies goes with a more thought provoking title, everyone gets their panties in a twist. The title makes complete sense, as well, they are taking the title from one of Fleming's short stories. At the end of Casino, Bond is heartbroken over the loss of Vesper. Quantum is all about revenge and then some. Hence the title, Quantum of Solace, Bond is looking for some bit of resolve to his broken heart, looking for answers. Dig people, dig!

Its typical JJ Abrams though... first 2 seasons good, then the rest turns into this giant ball of beetle dung... rolling downhill collecting more and more until its finally cancelled just to save face.

    by Screwbini

    Casino was a terrific reboot of the Bond franchise, and Craig makes a great Bond (although I'll admit that I has reservations about him when he was originally named as Brosnan's replacement). I enjoyed Brosnan's Bond, but the stories were mostly lame. Also, although Brosnan had a few moments of toughness, I agree that Craig is the only Bond who actually seems dangerous since Sean Connery (still my favorite). I hated Roger Moore's foppish take on Bond, and Timothy Dalton seemed utterly humorless (although admittedly potentially dangerous as well). George Lazenby had potential, but he never got another chance to develop that potential. So for now, Craig IS Bond!!!! And I'm looking forward to November 7.

    The Bond in Casino Royale IS the real Bond, it was the exact interpretation of the character that Ian Fleming wrote about in all his books.

    I hope this is good, but considering how bad The Kite Runner was and how terrible Monster's Ball was, I'm not sure. Hopefully, he works better with blockbusters than dramas.

    They tried to sell us a "serious torture", but we don't see any aftermath of it. This is just bad storytelling. But hey, he got poisoned and died in this movie and came back to life without any problems. You mentioned 24. This is as dumb as in season 3, when Bauer's heroin addiction got cured with some pills.

    This "new" Bond series is rapidily making me mentally erase every movie from the last Connery film to Casino Royale. What a freakin' set of bookends! THIS is Bond...makes me loathe the Roger Moore entries even more than I already did. The Dalton and Brosnan Bonds were good, but Craig is just owning this role. Wow!!!

  • June 30, 2008, noon CST


    by toadkillerdog

    Those are my thoughts exactly on the Bond's. It was a shame Lazenby was not given a chance, he would have grown into the role. Dalton had much menace, zero charm. Brosnan, had his finest moment in ois last film. He never really embodied the full menac that Connery possesed, the kind that could kiss a woman, and kill her in the next breath, but he had his moments. Craig, has that Connery menace. And I like how they are going into a sequel -that really gives Craig a chance to leave his mark on Bond like none since Connery.

    Royale not Royal - Come on People, dont start acting like George

    by PlasmaOrb

    This is for the people who are too stupid to add the E on the end of Royale. Its Royale, just like the quarter pounder in Pulp Fiction was a ROYALE with Cheese. Royal is a brand of tires... not a casino. Sorry... its about as bad when people say Your, when its supposed to be You're.

    by imascooby1985

    that Casino Royale is good as a Bond film but not as a film itself is very wrong. I have spent my entire life with a deep dislike for the Bond series. Incredibly sexist, dumb, and the action just never caught me. But I decided to give CR a chance because I loved Craig in Layer Cake. Now CR is easily in my top 5 fave movies of all time. It is simply amazing. And i know a few people who also arent Bond fans who dug it as well. The fact that this looks like more of the same has me very excited.

  • June 30, 2008, 12:42 p.m. CST



    More grit - what Bond has been missing for awhile - Connery was grit - Moore was good in his own way - Dalton brought grit, but was ignored - P.B. was a bit campy - but pulled it off - the stories just kinda B.S. with his Bond movies... But Craig - Craig is the grit... can't wait for this one!

    RIP James Bond

    by peter skellen

    If you love pretentious Jason Bourne clones and are fifteen years old I'm sure you'll think this is BADASS!!! or whatever the kids say. I'm still wondering if anyone ever plans to bring back the James Bond character. You know, handsome, refined, witty, inventive. A counterpoint to generic action meatheads like er, Daniel Craig's 'Bond'. Now we have some pug-faced muppet 007 running through walls and gurning. Don't even get me started on the idea that Craig resembles the incredibly suave, witty, pretty boy Bond played by Sean Connery in the sixties. Connery didn't take the role especially seriously so why he is compared to DC who plays every character as a homeless tramp who has just been injected with rabies or something is beyond me. In fact seeing as Connery was handsome and played the role in a somewhat jokey manner I'm amazed that all these new Bond experts haven't trashed him yet. And as for Ian Fleming. I honestly don't think that as he reached for his third drink of the morning at his West Indian retreat, adjusted his neckscarf and waved to Noel Coward that he suddenly had an idea about a musclebound, everyman, diminutive spy character who could be played by a man who looks like he has a brillo pad on his head.

    Cartoon B.S. lolol... ummm no - Cartoon B.S. was Grace Jones and A View to A Kill - and I loved Roger Moore - but View was about as Cartoon-like as it gets - Point is - Bond - as a franchise had run it's course... Craig/Casino took it back to the grit of Connery - and thank god they did - it was time for a change - and the change has been good - attendance/money rule what allows a franchise to move forward - in Hollywood anyway - and Craig/writers/Director have given the Bond films a new life. End of that story. Star Trek has felt the same pain... it ran it's course - numbers down - and hopefully the new Star Trek will bring it back - like Casino did with Bond.

    Yeah - grit - as in Tone


    Yeah - Connery - grit - like he actually KIlled people - smoked - drank... I'm also talking tone... Roger - didn't really kill much - lots of knocking people out - and moreso - the tone became more campy - which was fine for a time - it was a change - a tonal cahnge - the last few Roger films then went a little camp far I think - ran it's course... BUt yeah - Connery was grit - he was mean - and he'd kill ya in a second - Pierce - Pierce played Bond between Roger and Connery - but I never feared Pierce's Bond... now Connery - screw with his Bond - and you'd be tossed out that train window with a bullet in your mouth. Craig - Craigs Bond is the same - major shift - tone and all - from Roger/Pierce... they tried this shift before - with Dalton - Dalton didn't crack jokes and all - he just didn't stick - I think the stories...

    Agent Johnson

    by toadkillerdog

    I was trying to imitate the Liberalwarrrior, but my point was that Connery was the quintesential Bond, in that he combined the qualities of suavity, menace and charm, into the complete package. Fleming wanted Richard Burton, who was not exactly a pretty boy to play the role. So Craig is actually far more in tune with Flemings wishes than any of the Bonds. Craig still has a ways to go to acquire the charm, and he may never rest the mantle from Connery - who could? But, he is already worthy of top two consideration.

    Agreed- Good Point ToadKillerDog


    Agreed ToadKiller - great point - Connery was able to combine all those characteristics in his Bond - it will interesting to see if Craig/writers/Director can pull a bit more charm/suave from him - not sure it's needed as the film did really well - but - to catch up too Connery - he would have to tackle that last bit of character trait into Bond - and still do it in a way that's new - and not just re-treaded. I'm just glad they shifted the tone of the franchise and brought it back out of the "camp" phase.

  • June 30, 2008, 2:29 p.m. CST


    by toadkillerdog

    What makes Bond unique, and not just another robotic Bourne, is the fact that he posseses all of those characteristics that Connery was able to infuse. Craig is great already, and will only get better. I think by the third picture, you will see more of the polish that Bond is famous for. And that makes perfect sense, considering that the Craig Bond is still in the learning phase. It is very good to be excited about Bond again. Batman and Bond were the first two heroes that really liked as a kid - along with Lancelot Link Secret Chimp that is!<p> I would pay big money to see Link on the big screen!

    I liked GoldenEye, but not as much as Tomorrow Never Dies, or Dr. No. The reason being, I thought he was trying too hard in GoldenEye. Too hard to be both suave and menacing. And Brosnan, just does not have the physicality for menacing. That being said, by the time TND came around, he was far more comfortable in the role. He had mastered it. And I thought he had even overcome his slight build, to make a believable action Bond. In short, he pulled it all together in his last Bond.

    I don't understand the name? This movie is not based on am Ian Fleming Novel as I understand it so where did they get the story and that awful name? When I saw the post on Digg, I thought it was a Discovery Channel / IMAX flick or something so I had a delayed reaction but then once I realized it was Bond...and then watched the trailer...FUCK YEAH!! Bond is back Baby!! And can everyone stop with the Bourne comparisons please?!? Bond = British Secret Agent. Bourne = American Secret Agent. COMPLETELY FUCKING DIFFERENT!! Bond = Aston Martin. Bourne = Raggedy Ass Mini Cooper. Bond = Banging Smoking Hot Bitches. Bourne = Hooks up with one kinda cute girl and then whines about losing her for the next two movies. Bourne = Shaky Cam. Bond = No Shaky Cam. Bond = Sweet Gadgets. Bourne = A Cel phone, a stick of gum and a paperclip. McGuyver Style. This new Bond would hand Jason Bourne his Ass in a fight. And there is no CGI. Didn't anyone catch the on set accidents while they were filming in Italy. I think one stuntman was killed. Stuntmen aren't killed in CGI movies.

But I do not think it needs to be remade. That was Bond in his element - in the west Indies - which is another reason why the Craig Bond was great. Putting Bond in the Carribean as well as Europe.

    Sweet trailer

    by Adelai Niska

    Anyone remember the Casino Royale trailer? It was one of my fave trailers ever. I get the feeling that QUANTUM is just a cover for SPECTRE. I think they can use SPECTRE again now, right? They traded Bond copyrights for spiderman rights or something like that.

    As much as I enjoyed Casino Royale

    by FishEatingJoe

    I think people have already started to putting it way above what it actually was. To much down time in the film for my liking, especially on repeat viewing. They front loaded it with action and it hurt the pacing. No idea what we get here. Like a lot of the action, but I question if now the pacing it going to suffer from to much action.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:01 p.m. CST

    all of my doubts are gone

    by BurgerKing

    this will be awesome! That's an awesome trailer, the action looks more intense than Casino yet still within the realm of realistic action unlike earlier Bonds. The fact that it is a direct sequel is outstanding. This looks like first class stuff, I'm fucking happy as hell that the studios are actually taking Bond seriously again. That franchise felt like it was driven so far into the ground there was no hope, but then comes Daniel Craig and it's all better, what a recovery! <p> And after this so-far shitfest of a movie year (Iron Man excepted) The Dark Knight looks like the only thing to see this summer (ok I'll see Wall-E too) and the year can atleast end well with Quantum...hopefully it lives up to the trailer

    "a bumbling, incompetent metrosexual'

    by The Octagoner

    BullSHIT. If that's bumbling and incompetence, what the fuck do you call guys who CAN'T single-handedly take down a Bolivian embassy. And it's refreshing that Craig isn't some metrosexual pretty boy; he looks like a pug, like a brawler. Anybody who says he isn't Bond doesn't know Bond from a fist up their ass. You know who WASN'T Bond? Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and Pierce Brosnan (not his fault). Craig's better than Connery, who, cool as he was, can't act worth shit, had a Scottish accent, and was an inhuman adolescent power fantasy; at least this Bond, like the literary Bond, is an actual man that can get hurt and come back shooting. Jeff Albertson-- maybe, just maybe, you're not much of a judge of what charisma is. If you were, you might be able to acquire some. Dicksuck.

  • June 30, 2008, 5:05 p.m. CST

    by IAmMrMonkey!

    Roughly translated it means "Smallest measure of comfort" which is surely what Bond is going to get after putting bullets in the heads of all those people responsible for Vesper's death. I think it's brilliant.

    For those bitching about Craig not being "suave"

    by krullboyisback

    he is rough around the edges because this is Bond early in his career. . .he has not been a globe trotting OO for years, he just started. Like most people in these types of jobs, everyone is young dumb and full of cum starting out, but they mature as time goes on

  • June 30, 2008, 5:41 p.m. CST

    Some of you guys simply don't know what the fuck

    by GQtaste

    you're talking about. Craig isn't the "man of the world type yet?" I got news for you: it's a transgression. He isn't immediately that, he evolves into that guy. He begins as a blunt instrument as Judy labels him in CR. And to the people talking about Bourn and Alisas and jack bauer 24 and comparing them. Don't even post b/c it shows your ignorance. The Bond series is the longest in film history. Dating back some fifty fucking years! Where do you think they got the inspiration for 24 and Borne? Fucking Bond baby! It paved the way to all this other type of product to enjoy. And the dude that complained about the torture scene should be banned for being so retarded. Not scary enough? Please! Bond was fucking buck naked getting his genitals smashed w/ a huge fucking rope and a big lethal prong on the end of it. The villain even says that you don't need all kinds of elaborate types of torture. In the most basic of pain for men I concur w/ the dude. And everybody else seems to as well. Just having one of your testes getting brushed by your dog jumping up to play w/ you can send a guy reeling in pain. Imagine what the fucking rope must have felt like? Because I dont' want to and the was the entire point dipshit!

  • June 30, 2008, 5:56 p.m. CST

    Looks great

    by strosmer

    Perhaps even better than CR - more action, bigger action, just stepping it all up a notch. We'll see. Only thing I don't want is a 2 1/2 hour running time. For CR it was okay for the purpose of reintroducing the character, but they should keep it more concise from here on out. And this is not Bourne action, it is Bond action. Huge difference in my book. Bourne's edgy, but Bond's epic. Dogfight looks awesome, the rest just plain thrilling. Love the new Bond.

    re: DerLanghaarige

    by bunksteve

    Jesus Christ Monkey Balls, DerLanghaarige... What did you want? A ten minute montage of Bond limping around going, "Oww. M'testes."? The stuff in the hospital was more than sufficient to show that he had suffered. Then again... You made mention that the torture itself wasn't intense and painful. I'm guessing you've never seen, let alone touched, a heavy rope... say the kind used on boats or on construction sites? I'm lucky enough to have never been hit in the nuts by one, but I did catch one in the face and it left a giant welt and bruise on my face for like two weeks. Now imagine that on your balls. The fact that Bond didn't sing in falsetto for the rest of his life is proof that he is still a relatively invincible action star.(I just realized the entire last half of my post probably made a lot of the TB'ers in here giggle uncontrollably). Piss and moan about it all you want, DerLanghaarige. That's your right as an arrogant internet troll. Although I can't help but think the world would have been better off if you had just ended up as a blowjob. I'm just sayin...

    let me continue

    by Cedar_Room

    the love for The Living Daylights - it's a great Bond film: loads of action, good story and Dalton is badass. I really think that if LTK wasn't so poorly received he could have stayed around for years. Oh, and Die Another Day is absolutely the worst Bond film ever. The producers knew this, which is why they went the reboot way afterwards. It started out quite well, an interesting idea to have Bond captured and tortured. It promised a grittier edgier film. But then... invisible car, ice palace, bad CGI, Bond surfing a wave, face-changing bad guy, ridiculous electro suit. If it wasn't for Halle Berry in a bikini I would have demanded my money back.

  • July 1, 2008, 6:59 a.m. CST

    Hell, I'm a Temple of Doom fan so I might as well commit total TB suicide and proclaim my love for Dalton as Bond. <p> Dalton was such a breath of fresh, deadly air after the oldy, moldy, limp-wristed fisticuffs of Roger Moore. <p> Yeah, I said it.

  • July 1, 2008, 7:01 a.m. CST

    best Bond theme

    by Cedar_Room

    considering that the one in Casino Royale was so bad, I hope they improve things for QOS. Rumour had it that Amy Winehouse was going to do the new one, but considering she will have OD-ed by the time the film gets released, its probably best she doesn't. Think its going to be Leona Lewis now, and as far as I'm concerned she has a great voice. Anyway, my list of all time greatest Bond themes is: <p> 1. Nobody Does It Better <p> 2. Goldfinger <p> 3. Live and Let Die <p> 4. A View To A Kill <p> 5. We Have All The Time In The World (alright it wasn't the theme but played at the end, but its a timeless, beautiful song) <p> Worst Bond song of all time though is still All Time High from Octopussy. Good God it is awful.

  • July 1, 2008, 7:03 a.m. CST

    People forget (probably)

    by PacmanFever

    That Dalton and Living Daylights were recieved, by and large, almost as positively as Casino Royale and Craig were when it came out. If there had been am IMDB in those days it would have had an 8.0 rating or something and fanboys drooling all over it. Then LTK "bombed" (relatively speaking) at the box office (despite being a really solid, contemporary film) and alienated people with its surprisingly harsh violence. Add to that leagal problems resulting in a six year hiatus, and Dalton is regarded as a "failure".

  • July 1, 2008, 7:07 a.m. CST

    Bond fans shouldn't dump on Moore BTW

    by PacmanFever

    I can understand disliking his interpretation of the role, or finding him unthreatening or perhaps wooden, but he is the only one who seems to be downright proud to have been a part of the series, and is still happy to be associated with it and represent it to this day. He is a class act.

    RE: Casino Royale FanBoys

    by Emixxary

    I see a lot of flames against the few of us that saw flaws in CASino Royale. A lto of drooling praise that Casino royale was perfect, the best movie of the year, and that anyone who says anything negative about it is.. stupid. C'mon.. sure it was a fun movie, had good action.. the Parkour (crazy urban jumping) was good, not District B-13 good.. but still. But guys, there were major holes in the plot. If you are a bad guy, and need to get info out of Vesper, would you put her on the middle of a road to make craig have a car flipping crash? Oh, you also need to get info out of Craig too.. lets hope he had a seatbelt on!! Do you want to go over the other holes in film? How about his slow chase of Vesper through Venice? How about the card game?? Sure like the film and Craig.. but the film had major story problems. Even a fan boy can see that

  • July 1, 2008, 7:24 a.m. CST

    Living Daylights IS very good, and Moore is still VERY bad

    by The Octagoner

    I don't care how much of a gentleman Moore is in real life, his mincing, fruitty portrayal of Bond, and his turkey-waddle of a double-chin flapping in the breeze, renders him crap. Timothy Dalton was actually a very good Bond, and his first outing is very good, but he took the role at a time when people seemed really tired of the Bond character (thanks, Roger Moore).

  • July 1, 2008, 7:28 a.m. CST


    by The Octagoner

    The bad guys never needed to get info out of Vesper, they needed info out of Bond. He's chasing them. They make his car crash. If he dies, then he's not the threat they'd assumed anyway, so the seatbelt is irrelevant (they'd already tried to kill him once with poison). Bond wasn't 'chasing' Vesper through Venice, he was following her to see who she was meeting with. 'Tailing' isn't the same thing as a 'slow chase'. How about the card game? It was a card game. Any other questions? The film's 'major story problems' seem to be problems in your processing of its story.

  • July 1, 2008, 7:28 a.m. CST

    Dalton was an excellent Bond

    by Lost Jarv

    and probably the closest to Ian Fleming's original character of any incarnation so far. However, LTK was crap and as he only made 2 he is deemed a bad bond. Even though Living Daylights is great. <P>All you haters can fuck off. Dalton would feed you your own gonads. If you had any.

    Cheers Jarv, Doc - My take on Dalton

    by toadkillerdog

    Prince Baron was a good Bond, hamstrung by the times and the scripts. Remember, by the time Dalton took over, AIDS was running rampant across the planet. Sexual adventurism was a severe no-no. Reaganism and Thatcherism were at their heights. Bond was turned into a PC, sexually neutered, stiff(pun intended). Caught in the flux of the Roger Moore crapfest of Bond scripts that marked the end of his run. Dalton was still saddled with that garbage, unfunny one liners, and gadgets and bad cold war redo scripts. He was allowed one woman and one woman only. He had to reboot a franchise that saw a 50 some year old romancing twenty years old 's and supposedly still kicking ass, he had to leave his mark on character that became the butt of jokes! Given all of that, he did a credible job. Living Daylights is a very good opening effort even saddled with the baggage I mentioned above. Still, Dalton was trying to be his own man, and in doing so, he made one huge mistake. Looking back, it does not seem like much, but at the time, his take on the iconic line rendering 'Bond, James, Bond' made it sound like he was emabarrassed to be playing the role. He rushed the dleivery, rendering it meaningless, if not more realistic. His subsequent interviews, lent credence to the belief that he was slumming it. True or not. Dalton, was not embraced. <p> He seemed cold and distant, which is what Bond should be, but given that Connery had invested such charm in the role, Dalton had to at least try. Even Moore, who was good at first, but turned Bond into a joke, had charm. The attempts to lighten Dalton up failed badly. Dalton could not say a funny line to save his life though, and to make matters worse, the lines he was given were not funny. But he would have overcome this, if LTK was not such a shitty movie. I think given the chance, he would have been the second best Bond. <p>

  • July 1, 2008, 8:24 a.m. CST

    I can't believe he thought he was slumming it

    by Lost Jarv

    Seriously, as much as I love Flash Gordon, that is slumming it. Not Bond. <P>There was an interview with Brosnan (who was a fucking terrible Bond) in the Sunday Telegraph and he came across as a proper twat. <P>Finally, there can be no forgiving that horrid electropap effort turned out by Lady Muck. Fucking Die Another Day was wretched on every level but really that theme song (not to mention an actual appearance) really didn't help. <P>Bring back A-Ha.

  • July 1, 2008, 8:28 a.m. CST

    re Dalton slumming it.

    by DocPazuzu

    In a recent issue of Total Film (I think) he came across as someone who really felt close to the role. Don't know if his affinity for it grew over the years or if he was being a bit dodgy about it, but he genuinely seemed to care for Bond. <p> "From this day on, let every breed of Mongo live together, in peace."

    Connery as a Bond villain IS a terrible idea. Dalton WAS a great but unlucky Bond. And 'Hot Fuzz' DID suck. I love British humor generally; The Office, League of Gentlemen, Black Books, etc., but Hot Fuzz was a single joke told ad-nauseaum (It's filmed like Michael Bay did it! Get it? Only these guys aren't your typical 'action heroes'! Get it?) The only good part was when that piece of masonry fell on the guy's head. Did anybody here see 'In Bruges'? That's my favorite film of the year so far. Not especially deep or profound, but funny, neat, well-acted, with some of the most perversely filmed acts of violence I've ever seen. Sort of like everything Quentin Tarantino should have been, if he'd actually been worthy of all the hyperbole put on him.

    That goes without saying. I'm chucking to myself just thinking about their first encounter with the dead.

    Hot Fuzz and Diamonds are Forever

    by toadkillerdog

    Hot Fuzz sucked. Sorry. as much as I wanted to love the movie - i even bought it for crying out loud, as much as I loved Shaun of the Dead, this one left me very disappointed. It just was not funny. It started out very good, but it got stale. I agree that the steeple falling on the guy was the funniest part of the whole movie. <p> Diamonds, well, that one sholds a special place in my heart. Yes, it is not a good Bond movie, or a good movie period. Sean did it for the money and really needed a trainer. But damn it, it was my very first Bond movie, and as a kid, I went apebugshitfucknuts over it. I was hooked on Bond for life.

    What the fuck?

    by Lost Jarv

    Right. Worst Bond Movies: <P>1)Die Another Day. <P>2)The World is not Enough. Villain think's he's Hamlet. Nearly saved by the extremely fuckable ms Marceau. <P>3)Moonraker. Lazy and Poo. Bond does not do sci-fi. <P>The spy Who Loved Me has the best opening and best theme of any Bond film. Ergo- does not suck.

    Hot Fuzz<Shaun

    by Lost Jarv

    I like Fuzz, but it's nowhere near as good as Shaun

  • July 1, 2008, 10:12 a.m. CST

    Jaws was a lumbering twat though

    by Lost Jarv

    I never understood why Bond didn't just shoot him. And what was with his lame love story in Moonraker?

  • July 1, 2008, 10:20 a.m. CST

    Moonraker was just pure dog poo

    by toadkillerdog

    Not even the solid dog poo, but the runny kind.

    Police calls in Hot Fuzz

    by Series7

    Did anyone else notice that all the police calls Simon got, or whenever he arrested someone there name was some sort of dick reference?

    Sean - Started off as action grit<P> Roger - Camp <P> Lazenbee - Doesn't count <P> Tim - Action Grit <P> Pierce - (1) Best bond movie (Goldeneye), but ultimatly campy new Willennium over the top camp. <P> Dainel - A jewish bond, but back to the action <P> SO Freddie Highmore (or more likely Shia) will end up being a campy bond.

  • July 1, 2008, 10:51 a.m. CST

    worst bond movie.

    by HoboCode

    I wouldn't even count it as an actual Bond film but it has to be said. Never Say Never Again is pure vegemite coated ass.

  • July 1, 2008, 10:54 a.m. CST

    World is not Enough a close second in suckage.

    by HoboCode

    Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist? That's dumb even for a Bond film. Might as well make Elizabeth Shue a nuclear physicist in a film.....wait a sec....well at least The Saint was a much better film.

  • July 1, 2008, 10:55 a.m. CST

    Sorry Agent Johnson

    by HoboCode

    I must atone for that. Better strap me to Pope checking chair.

  • July 1, 2008, 11 a.m. CST

    oh come on HoboCode

    by Cedar_Room

    Denise Richards was great eye candy, and was purely there to get in the joke about Christmas coming once a year. My friend saw TWINE with his parents and told them to look out for a great joke he had heard about at the end. How very awkward that was.

    I'd completely forgotten about "Dr" Christmas Jones. Fucking thanks for that one, fellas.

    You are indeed a Bond fan of my own heart. I totally agree about Diamonds Are Forever. Not a good Bond movie (Connery's worst), but for some reason it still holds a special place on my list. Probably because I was so glad to see Connery back in the role (no disrespect to Lazenby, but Connery was the ONLY Bond for me at that point). By the way, for anyone to rank ANY Roger Mooore Bond movie higher than Goldfinger (or just about any other Connery Bond movie) is INSANE!!! A View To A Kill? The WORST Bond movie ever!

  • July 1, 2008, 11:09 a.m. CST

    Node, Never say Nevr again, was better than View to a kill

    by toadkillerdog

    I mean, Grace Jones? Total garbage. Connery smirked his way through that film, and the hairpiece looked bad, but still, it was Sean, not Roger. Do not get me wrong, I liked Moore - in the Saint and the Pretenders that is. <p> If anyone remembers the Pretenders, quick, name the type of car Moore drove.

  • July 1, 2008, 11:21 a.m. CST

    A View to a Kill

    by HoboCode

    At least it wasn't a pathetic remake of a vastly superior film. I'm not saying it's good (didn't make my Top Ten after all) but you gotta love Walken hamming it up as the villain and Grace Park was a perfect Bond henchman. That bitch scared me half to death.

    by toadkillerdog

    DAF holds a place near and dear no only because it was my first Bond movie, but because I vividly recall the circumstances around seeing it. My mother took me to see it. My dad was still in Viet Nam, at the time so Mom and I always went to see movies on saturday. I wanted to see Dumbo or something like that, she told me we where going to see DAF. I had no idea what DAF was, but it sounded really bad. Some boring grown up movie that would put me to sleep in five minutes. I put my foot down - and got dragged off anyway. Needless to say, from the opening credits, i was hooked. And when the car flipped on to two wheels, well, i just about lost it. My mother had a cheshire cat grin on her face I will never forget. She knew I would love Bond - even if the title sucked (for a kid).

    View To A Kill

    by Lost Jarv

    Better than World is Not Enough and Die Another Day AND Tomorrow Never Dies. There's loads of reasons for this- <P>To be honest, I think Brosnan is the most overrated Bond ever. He only made 1 good film (although to be fair it was a cracker). And he runs like a girl.

    Fred late again - but Fred think CR was great

    by Freds_Balls_in_a_Mason_Jar

    Top three Bond movie all time. Fred loved Deborrah Kerr, she make Fred have fantasy. Oh, thuis about OTHER CR. Fred sorry. Craig is Fred's second favorite Bond behind Woody Allen. Fred just kidding. Peter Sellers always be number 2.

    It's hip to bash the Brosnan movies

    by superunknown85

    but I honestly think that Diamonds Are Forever is easily the worst of them all, followed by Live and Let Die.

  • July 1, 2008, 3:25 p.m. CST

    Tomorrow Never Dies is great for two main reasons.

    by HoboCode

    1. Michelle Yeoh kicks the shit out of everyone in the film.<p> 2. The villain is a Rupert Murdoch-like transnational media mogul who all too believably uses his information news network to provoke governments into war.

    It's hip to bash the Brosnan movies

    by tk 421

    Because they are straight up garbage, pure and simple. While the worst of Connery's Bond films, DAF is easily better than anything that watch model Brosnan did. Worst Bond film is a tie between Die Another Day & The World is Not Enough.

    I thought I was the only one who like Living Daylights.

    by allykatD

    I loved that Bond movie, the first decent Bond in a long line of what I thought were stinkers until Casino Royale came along. I liked Dalton, I thought he made a good Dond, and I loved the story of LD, I liked the idea of Bond going rogue. In light of people coming out and saying that they liked LD, a friend, and a hard core Bond fan, just told me he liked Timothy Daltona and LD too. Glad to see it. That being said, I'm really enjoying Craig as a harder, edgier Bond.

  • July 1, 2008, 4:36 p.m. CST

    Casino Royale was great casting overcoming a so-so script

    by drewlicious

    It would have been a much better movie if it didn't have that last twenty minutes in Venice. Other than that it was pretty tight. I'm really looking forward to Quantum of Solace, Bond's got a personal stake and we can get a better climax than a card game.

  • July 1, 2008, 5:44 p.m. CST


    by Mattyboy122

    What kind of revisionism is this? TND is fucking terrible! Jon Pryce as Hearst/Murdoch, starting World War III to sell newspapers!? Goldeneye remains the only top-knotch Bond film by Brosnan (and while The World is Not Enough wasn't bad, it is entirely forgettable). TND and DAD are awful. As far as worst Bond flicks go, I'd probably put up Moonraker. I never cared for Roger Moore, to be honest. From Russia with Love and Casino Royale are probably my two favorites.

  • July 1, 2008, 5:49 p.m. CST

    And one more thing...

    by Mattyboy122

    Is Craig Jewish? I know he played a Jew in Munich and in that upcoming Ed Zwick flick, but he looks like a nazi superman!

    Hot Fuzz = Shaun of the Dead

    by AlwaysThere

    I wasn't completely enamored with HF after my first viewing, but the 2 go through sold me on it completely. It was the same with Shaun. There's too much going on in these movies in terms of setups then payoffs for you to get everything with one viewing. I'd go as far to say that this movies are 2 of the best plotted flicks you can find out there.

  • July 1, 2008, 7:46 p.m. CST

    I think Craig may be half Jewish but not sure.

    by HoboCode

    Anyway the invisible car was in the DAD dreck, not TND. And starting WWIII to sell newspapers. Hell yes. We're talking about a global media empire, not the Pittsburgh Gazette.

    Agent Johnson

    by DocPazuzu

    Sounds like you should have stayed in that helicopter in Die Hard. TWINE is beyond terrible. I hate it even more than I hate Die Another Day, a film I truly loathe. The only good thing about TWINE is when "Dr. Christmas Jones'" sweater gets drenched aboard the sub. Everything else is complete shit, from the weak-ass villains and the tepid action scenes to the lame "No, I can protect you!" finale of the opening chase and Coltrane's alarming Scotto-Russian accent (which he mysteriously adopted AFTER Goldeneye). <p> STINKO!
