Re: Craig will be Bond again

Connery WAS Bond PERIOD :lol

Everything about those Movies gave birth to a legend that has never quite hit the same marks, but I totally with you on the music!

Yes, that's what I'm talkin' about! But not just high-action scenes. I want Bond music even when he's just creeping around...like in this amazing scene! I love how the music kicks in when 007 jumps the security guard! (If you wanna skip ahead, begin watching around the 0:40 mark.)

* 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.
That's actually exactly what I said when I saw Spectre. Who is this guy? "Borne. Jason Borne."

If "James Bond is a code name" then you can bet the next one won't be a white male.

Re: Craig will be Bond again

Personally I just did not care for the entire Bond Reboot when they brought Craig in. Jame Bond films have a rich history which has been directly acknowledged a couple of time on screen- like the gadget collection shown in one film (I forget which one at the moment) that included the Jetpack, the fake alligator infiltration, the From Russia with Love Briefcase, the entire room was filled with history. When you saw James Bond, no matter who the actor was, you were watching the Bond who stormed the hollowed out volcano to prevent a world war from being triggered.

Then some suit thought "lets just dump all of that and start over with Bond as a green novice on his first assignment".

Like the Cruise Mission Impossible series, yes, they are well made films with big budgeted action sequences, but that are in name only.
Change the title and the role name and it could be any action adventure film- they just do not have the lightning in the bottle anymore.

Re: Craig will be Bond again

Craig is not the element that worries me.
What worries me is the writing that happened after Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
