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. 

Keep in mind that they're portraying Bond at the beginning of his career, when he's still inexperienced and uncertain of himself. His personality is more destructive at this point, and he's capable of being hurt by women. It's easy to imagine that he'll become more suave as his experience grows.

Here in the UK,ITV have lost the James Bond Licence that they have held onto since 1975(They show Bond movies every Christmas or Bank Holiday..in fact Christmas wont be the same without them showing Goldfinger),SKY have picked up the rights

So SKY this October with the 50th anniversary and Skyfalls release,will be putting up it's own movie channel just for Bond Movies entitled 'SKY Movies 007',and will show all the Bond movies as well as Never Say Never Again and the 60's Version of Casino Royale all in HD,with no commercial breaks like ITV either

A good substitute if i don't get the Blu-Ray box set

I have just started to read Casino Royale,so i started to look up about Bond books,somehow i got to this link,from last December about Daniel Craig to sign up for another 5 Bond films(on top of Skyfall),so sorry its late,not sure how i missed it

http://news.sky.com/story/910345/daniel-craig-set-for-five-more-bond-films

Quote
Daniel Craig is set to sign up for another five James Bond films - making him the longest serving 007.

The multi-million pound deal would see Craig star in eight films - one more than Roger Moore who appeared in seven.

Bond producer Michael G Wilson told The People: "Daniel's been a terrific Bond, a superb actor and a terrific man. The fans love him and I don't think there's a better actor to play the part."

The 43-year-old is currently shooting his third film, Skyfall, with director Sam Mendes.

Wilson, whose stepfather "Cubby" Broccoli started the franchise in 1962, is keen for Craig to have five more outings as Bond.

"It's certainly something we'll be discussing with him once we finish shooting Skyfall," he said.

"Filming has gone very well and I'd love Daniel to surpass Roger's record and do eight pictures."

He added: "There's really no one more passionate about making these films work than him - he's a film maker's dream.

"A lot of people have said Daniel's been their favourite Bond since Sean Connery and I can't argue with them. He's doing a great job."

While Wilson did not confirm financial details, it is rumoured Craig will earn more than the £8m he is reportedly being paid for Skyfall.

But the 69-year-old producer did reveal that Skyfall will hark back to the 1960s style Bond.

He said: "The director Sam Mendes and Daniel are taking it back to a 60s feel - more Sean," he said. "I think that’s what the fans wanted."

"There's a magical Goldfinger feel surrounding it all. It's all very exciting. I can't wait for people to see the movie because I think we're making a very special Bond."

Wilson has been a producer or executive producer for 13 Bond films and now co-produces the franchise with his step-sister Barbara Broccoli.


and this is an interesting theory from screenrant at around the same time

Quote
Director Irvin Kershner’s 1983 Bond flick, Never Say Never Again, played around with the concept of an aging version of 007 (brought to life by Sean Connery). It stands to reason that, should Craig sign on for five more movies, future installments in the franchise could likewise incorporate and work with the idea of a battle-worn Bond – an idea that would also be in keeping with the relatively “grittier and more realistic” aesthetic of the series during Craig’s run.

So if true,it sounds like EON Productions have a real plan for Bond for the next decade

I borrowed the latest 2 movies from my sister but haven't watched them yet(ever actually). Are they planning a return to the tongue in cheek styling or is it going to keep being the action movie stuff these have been? I can't seem to get up the energy to watch these.

if the Screenrant theory quote in my post above my above post(does that make sense?)is to believed we are going to stay with this kind of Bond(and Daniel Craig)until he is an older Bond,sticking to realism,so to speak...but that post also says how this upcoming Bond movie has very much the feel of Goldfinger,it's certainly Sean Connery they are aiming for and not the Roger Moore tongue in cheek style you are looking for I'm afraid

Although i do like the seriousness tone of these current Bonds,i do like the odd Tongue in Cheek,but with the Roger Moore Bonds,they were getting a little too crap for the Tongue in Cheek stuff(IMO)

as for the two you have borrowed,they are the start of a story,instead of the usual Bond movies being separate stories...Casino Royale an excellent addition to the Bond franchise,while Quantum of Solace follows on where Casino Royale left off,I didn't think much of it first time i saw it but for some reason it was a million times better the second time i watched it

The two you have borrowed i would say is THE START of action type and not Tongue in cheek of Die another Day before them,which was pants,so really if you have not seen these you have borrowed off your sister,i don't think you have got to the serious of the new Bonds yet

This,i have to admit sounds a million times better than i was expecting it to,although Adele plays it safe because it sounds just like a James Bond theme i do really like it..and it has words on the screen so its easy to follow Tongue

now,if we can just stop her from opening her mouth when accepting awards

Adele has a voice tailor-made for a Bond song and she/they definitely did a nice job with it. I actually like that they used previous Bond themes (or variations on them) because it makes it sound like a Bond theme song, not something that's completely out of left field.

Saw it this weekend. It's good. In some ways it's a throwback to the old Bond movies, and in some ways it's a step in a completely different direction. It's the first of the Daniel Craig movies that manages to evoke the Bond we remember. This is the movie where the entire reboot comes together.

For those who care about this sort of thing (I did), this movie is not a direct continuation of the plot from Quantum of Solace. They're leaving that plot hanging for a while, much in the same way that SPECTRE was treated back in the old days.

Also,

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm wondering if that's the shortest bond girl appearance ever, or if there have been others. It's just poof, pretty half-Asian woman, and poof, gone without a thought.

I also thought they let the villain get away with way too much. I mean, they retreat to WWII bunkers to get away from his hacking, and yet they still use digitally networked, well, everything there, including the locks on his cell it seems. It made what should have been a scary villain get away more by sheer incompetence of MI6 than by any cunning plan.

Overall, I liked it, wasn't amazing, but was a good send off to Daniel Craig, and the start of something new.

And the two next are supposedly going to be the first time in Bond history where a movie will end with something akin to "to be continued". In other words, the next storyline will be split over two movies.

I keep hearing that, but QoS was a continuation from casino royal, more or less.

Also, Skyfall was awesome.

To a certain degree yes, but I think they're taking it to another level this time. Remember that Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace focused on Quantum, with Mr White (I think) and Vesper as the glue to connect the two films. Quantum of Solace focused on a new villain and a new plot, so it wasn't a direct continuation. It's not unlike how SPECTRE was handled in the old days, with Blofeld as a recurring villain without directly connecting any of the movies.

Actually, I meant dumb decisions like:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Stopping to change getaway cars, but not also stocking up on weapons.  Also, taking the time to booby trap a mansion, but not taking time to call in the cavalry.

Uhm, did you even pay attention to what was going on during that part of the movie?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Bond went off the grid, which meant he didn't have access to MI6 resources. The car was his personal property, stashed away for a rainy day. He kept his weapons at Skyfall mansion, and they were sold off. He couldn't get weapons or cavalry without ruining the entire point of going to the mansion in the first place.

Took my mom to see it, and we can attest to its "cross-generational" appeal.  icon_smile I rarely see Bond movies in theaters more than once but I might make an exception.  thumbsup While all the action is fine and some stunt set pieces are imho truly spectacular/unique, I think it boils down to a fine screenplay and memorable characters who get some room to breathe between the requisite action scenes.

Who thought Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road, Kate Winslet's ex-husband) was the ideal James Bond director? Not me. icon_smile Should be a lesson to know it alls... like myself... who have Internet hissy fits when a non-action movie director is attached to something actiony. Maybe, if the screenplay's solid, that's exactly what you need sometimes.  icon_cool

For those who've sign it, I guess I missed something but is it ever explained exactly what "Skyfall" is? Have to move into spoiler code to ask anything more specific...
Spoiler for Hiden:
I know Skyfall comes up when the MI6 "tester" is asking Bond "word association" stuff, but I and my mom couldn't recall any other references in the movie to it. Did it have something to do with that island? Or maybe it's a code name for that list of MI6 agents embedded in terrorist groups to gather intelligence?

Did it have something to do with that island? Or maybe it's a code name for that list of MI6 agents embedded in terrorist groups to gather intelligence?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Skyfall was the name of his family estate, they showed a sign towards the end when they arrive there.
Aaaaaaah. Damn. Another reason for me to see it again. Thanks.  icon_smile

Great, great movie! The best realized James Bond film ever in terms of story, locations and characters. It's like 'The Dark Knight' of the James Bond franchise. Javier Bardem was superb as the villain, Silva, and his scenes with Craig were very entertaining. Sam Mendes' direction and Roger Deakins' cinematography were fantastic. It's just a magnificent film.

Took my mom to see it, and we can attest to its "cross-generational" appeal.  icon_smile I rarely see Bond movies in theaters more than once but I might make an exception.  thumbsup While all the action is fine and some stunt set pieces are imho truly spectacular/unique, I think it boils down to a fine screenplay and memorable characters who get some room to breathe.

For those who've sign it, I guess I missed something but is it ever explained exactly what "Skyfall" is? Have to move into spoiler code to ask anything more specific...

Bathroom break.

Shushing the person behind you.

Distracted by naked woman in aisle.

Midget with pole vault leaping over audience.

Al Qaeda operative fighting with Ted Danson near exit.

Huge Dutch speaking Doberman screaming obscenities at you for not getting enough Sno Caps for everyone.

...that's just off the top of my head, mind you.
