Re: Craig will be Bond again

Source?

Anyway, personally I find the Craig-Bond movies to be forgettable. Literally, forgettable, as in starting to watch a movie when I have nothing better to do and then after ten minutes thinking "Oh, haven't I seen this one already?".

Re: Craig will be Bond again

I've enjoyed his films, but I think he's near the end of his tenure in the role. I'd like to see his Bond be killed at the end of the next film, and the new film be basically an adoption of the "James Bond is a code name" theory.

Cool beans man. Also Sources have a list of Bond girls they are looking at for the new movie. Marion cotillard ( good choice) Katy perry ( wtf) and of course Rachel Weisz ( my pick and his wife).

not much on villains yet. Dwight from the office has said he wants to do it.

I guess saying you would rather slit your wrists than play a character again is pretty hard core preemptive bargaining.

everyone always nails him with that line. Yet it was after his accident and he was pretty beat up. Plus he was doing his own stunts n crap. Rachel was all over him for doing the stunts himself. Money wasn't the issue to him. It is more of respect to the wife by not really wanting to do it for health reasons. For him to say yes to this film it has to be cause she ok'ed it and he will use a stunt double finally. Who knows, maybe he / studio said she can finally be a Bond girl to sweeten the deal.

Re: Craig will be Bond again

I really have never cared for Craig's Bond, it's too serious and not the semi-campy character that the series was built on. Then again, most movies are just "dark for the sake of being dark" and I hate that.

Re: Craig will be Bond again

I really enjoyed the new take on Bond with Craig breaking the mold. But it seems his heart isn't in it anymore and that was obvious in Spectre. I was looking forward to someone else like Idris Elba or Michael Fassbender to tackle 007.

Spectre was such a terrible movie. Written poorly and misused almost every thing the other movies produced. Waste of a talent and the story line. I can't blame Craig for reading that script and be like "ugh..I'm calling this in and not doing anymore of these"

idris Elba will likely never get the role. He has a history of being a dick and cries about most films he does. He has talent, yet too much baggage for some people to deal with. He needs to learn to shut his mouth and do his job. Maybe then he will get more respect in the studios eyes and a shot at something game changer. Micheal Fassbender would be great choice.

Re: Craig will be Bond again

I liked Casino Royale, but nothing after. Here is why his movies suffer:

* Craig looks Russian, not British. He'd be better cast as a Bond villain's henchman.
* He's too short, by several inches. All the other Bonds were around 6'2".
* Traditional Bond music is not used throughout the films. We hear it at the opening scene, and then when the end credits roll. Disgraceful. May as well be a Bourne movie.
* Being a cold killer is nice, but the character needs charm to balance it out. Craig couldn't charm his way out of a paper bag. The man has zero charisma. I don't care about him.

Re: Craig will be Bond again

The ending of SPECTRE was a perfect exit point for him from the character.

I love him as Bond and I just hope they have a damn good story to justify pressing on, they risk doing one too many as with Moore.
Age starts to be a factor. 00s are supposed to retire at 45 in the books as I understand it, IF they survive to that age.
Movies are different of course and many things get changed. I guess I should be all for older guys being action heroes and sex symbols. ha ha.
I'm only a year and a half older than him.

Re: Craig will be Bond again

Casino Royale might be my favorite Bond film ever and Skyfall is definitely in my Top 5, but QoS was awful and SPECTRE was a huge disappointment. After the way he was sleepwalking through that film I was kinda hoping he would exit the role and let someone else take it over. I thought Tom Hiddleston would be a great choice after seeing how good he was in The Night Manager. :cool

Re: Craig will be Bond again

I think Dan Stevens would make an excellent Bond.
That guy impressed the heck out of me in "The Guest", and I want to see more of him.
Craig's more 'generic action guy' - like Liam Neeson.

You take that back! Liam Neeson has a very special set of skills!

Like macrame and calligraphy and he bakes really tasty bread!
