Plus, Connery was both sexiest man alive AND managed to piss off the entire population of women with his "needs a good slap" comment.

I really liked Craig in CR.

I would agree that Craig is probably the 2nd best Bond. Oh wait, with a lastname like that -originally Clan Craigie- he no doubt has scottish roots too. Are we seeing a pattern here? slywink

I've read Carte Blanche, and while it was enjoyable enough (apart from the constant thing where the author changes your POV to hide a clever trick your original POV character knew about. It happens every time the POV changes, which grows tiresome) I hope it's not the basis for the movie. For one thing, it won't be an original story. It also won't resolve the Quantum storyline, which is what we've been promised all this time (from the best of my recollection, this was supposed to be a trilogy, starting with Casino Royale and ending with the upcoming movie).

Berenice Marlohe will apparently be the next Bond Girl.

Who is she?

Quote from: imdb mini bio:
French actress and model Bérénice Marlohe first came to international attention when she was cast as the 'Bond Girl' alongside Daniel Craig in Skyfall (2012), directed by Oscar-winner Sam Mendes. Prior to this she acted mainly on French television, including roles in "Père et maire" (2002), "R.I.S. Police scientifique" (2006) and "Équipe médicale d'urgence" (2006).

What does she look like?

I like the first 2 but they do seem to be downplaying the suave sophisticated spy aspect for a grittier Bond.   That and the lack of gadgets makes this feel more like a Bourne franchise than a Bond one.

I just found-not sure when it was announced- out that the other Bond Girl(1 is never enough these days) is Naomie Harris who i think is actually damn fine looking,you may remember her from Pirates 2 and 3 as Calypso ..well she has wiped her mouth/brushed her teeth now Tongue


She is another field Agent who

details on Bond being a depressed MI6 killer

Quote
Speaking in Istanbul where the new film is currently shooting, the Oscar winner said he had gone back to the original novels to look at the troubled psyche of the MI6 agent.

"What Fleming created was a very conflicted character," he told reporters.



Quote
Mendes added that he could not have made it without Daniel Craig as 007.

"Some of those things are explored in this movie because Daniel as an actor is capable of exploring them and I am interested in exploring them too," he said.

"That was a big thing for me, having a Bond who I believed in, who I felt could take the character to a new level."

Quote
Mendes added: "The MGM delay allowed us the time to think about the story...and in that time Daniel was able to articulate the areas that the character could go."

I am sure this is just a sign of how I am old or not hip or something but I didn't like it.

Remember when James Bond used to be fun?  Where he had cool gadgets, wild adventures, beautiful women, and always a glib line.  Even the Sean Connery stuff (which was a lot less cheesy than Moore's stuff) wasn't this grim. 

He is no longer a super, smooth spy.  He is Jason Borne with an English passport.  And don't get me wrong I liked those films - but they were not Bond movies.  For me neither is this stuff.

Well this hasn't really started with the Daniel Craig movies,In Die Another Day Brosnan's Bond was captured and tortured and accused of spilling his guts,then a deal was done to exchange him for a terrorist..then while in possession of MI6 afterwards while he was still under suspicion,he had to escape from them while in a Hospital bed with a big bushy beard and go rogue(which didn't last that long)


Timothy Dalton in License to Kill,was also a rogue agent on the run and going undercover to bust Robert Davi's Coke business,License to Kill being the first Bond movie to get a 15 certificate here in the UK,and had Felix being tortured/eaten by a Shark


Cool Gadgets-Q is introduced in this movie,so expect gadgets to be introduced as well i guess

Beautiful women-did you not see the pictures above and on the last page?

Wild Adventures-I'll admit that these have not had the OTT ride of the past films,probably something else they were aiming at

Glib Line-Daniel Craig has said a few one liners,but not in the same amount as Sean Connery had,and definitely not as much as Roger Moore...but at least Daniel Craig accused Le Chiffre of itching Bond's balls while being tortured Tongue

He is no longer a Super,Smooth Spy-again,they say they are going for a more gritty Bond..hey,he isn't even gonna be ordering Vodka Matini's in this film,now its Heineken

I like the Craig Bond films much more than I do the last half dozen or so before Craig.  The previous incarnations were oftentimes treated as parodies of their former self, with slapstick comedy and ridiculous deus ex machina gadgets that took away all sense of danger.  When Bond first showed up with Connery, it was far more grim than what it eventually became (grim for the time period, that is).  From there it gradually slid downhill into the realm of light action film bearing very little resemblance to the source material in both tone and execution.  They were a little better with Brosnan for a brief period, though.

Craig brings us a James Bond who actually looks and acts like someone who would survive the life of a spy (or at least the interpretation of a spy as written by Fleming...see Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy for what the reality of espionage is most probably like...or that's what I've heard, at least.).

Very much looking forward to another Craig based Bond.

I have to agree with hepC.  The Bond series initially started with a grittier feel, at least when considering the era, with Connery slapping women around, killing when necessary, and womanizing whenever provided the opportunity.  The gadgets were present, but somewhat realistic and effective.  But, as time passed both the character and the universe in which he acted became too campy, approaching more parody than fun.  Outlandish gadgets and cartoonish villains took the series from spy actioner to exaggerated caricature. 

I find the current tone to be a closer translation from Flemming's vision.  It gives us a grittier, more realistic Bond, including internal conflict, a dependence on training rather than gadgetry, and villains with more menace than gimmick.  I personally love the current Bond series, despite the 2nd being somewhat of a hiccup.

I think the Bond films jumped the shark in Live and Let Die:

Spoiler for Hiden:
when Bond feeds Kananga that pellet, causing him to inflate like a balloon and float up to the ceiling before popping.

Ben Whishaw unveiled as the new Q

I haven't heard of him either


Quote
The pair said: 'It’s a real thrill to confirm the return of Q in 'Skyfall' played by the enormously talented, Ben Whishaw. We are delighted to have this beloved character back in the series.'


Looking on IMDB,the only thing that really sticks out for me is that he was in Layer Cake which also starred Daniel Craig,but that's fine,as much as i love John Cleese,i am not really sure the role of Q was right for him

It most certainly didn't start like that - I've seen every JB movie out there, and while the first movies are my favorites (Felix Leitner - WHERE ARE YOU!!?) they are totally as much over the top as the rest of them. Dr. No (First movie) and his nuclear reactor where the Atomic powered radio beam will disrupt the space launch... If you take into account the other kind of movies at the time period (early 1960's) they were quite over the top crazy movies.

I actually find though, that From Russia with love is one of the best ones in terms of interesting story and as far as I can remember, also one of the movies to most closely follow Ian Fleming's (My name, incidentally) books. I do however kinda like the look of the new ones, but like everything else, a series that has existed for 50 years will of course change over the course of time to reflect modern day moviemaking.

I think he was the lead in the BBC show The Hour. Good show about how news came to be on television in the UK in the '50s.

I like the latest Bond incarnations as well but I do miss the fun factor.  It seems like theyve sucked the fun right out of the series, which is why I can see the comparisons to Bourne.  Now Im not talking campy fun like they went for in the Moore years but in most Bonds, Bond actually enjoyed being a spy and lived the lifestyle to its fullest.  Now with Craig, not so much.  I enjoy them for what they are but they just are not fun anymore.  I guess dark and real is the new fun.

(Felix Leitner - WHERE ARE YOU!!?)

he was in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, so I'm not sure where you expect him to be.

why, in every Bond movie of course! Whats so difficult about that?
