    While AVTAK improved upon its source material, FRWL failed miserably.

  • A Blood Stone poster I made;
    image

    It's obviously based on the box-art, and in fact started as a PDF scan of it. I applied some effects and made some small adjustments.

    In a world where fake news make presidents, everything is deniable.

    The undeniably worst aspects of TND were the film's locations.

    Hopefully DC will more than just one more Bond movie. If Madeline Swann were to die, would you prefer it happen in the beginning, middle, or end of the film? Really, to those of us who like Quantum of Solace, Swann represents the last relevance of Mr. White and the irony of his daughter being a sort of new Vesper is interesting as his departing gift for all the pain from the Prague incident in CR.

    How can it be made deeper or more emotional than the OHMSS's ending? Hopefully David Arnold can help with the score and do a better job than Thomas Newman's minimalism....but with music aside...


    CR did a great job of establishing the relationship between Bond and Vesper bickering back and forth and also with him constantly showing her respect. Also, what helped make her become a heartfelt "loose ending" with her death was the fact that Bond was literally chasing her despite being mad, he didn't want her to die. The audience felt Bond's cry, basically.

      I don't think Madeleine has to die. I want Bond 25 to spend a little time at the start of the film to explore Bond's retirement, and show his boredom at living a quiet life. Madeleine would symbolically represent to Bond what he could have (a normal, quiet life) but he can't help but miss his MI6 work. I don't think Madeleine has to die, but some danger should come up that drives Bond to hide her away so he can deal with the threat (likely Blofeld's payback).

      Bond then faces the threat and comes back to her at the end, having a heart to heart where he explains to her that she offered to him the chance to make a choice, a choice to live a safe life. He may have thought he wanted that at the start, but in the end he would confess that he was meant to be an agent. He was born for a storm, and the calm of a peaceful retirement doesn't suit him. He would then walk back to MI6, back to his old and only life.

      If only we had some idea of what his next username will be should he attempt to join again.
  • I really crave for the day La Vie En Rose makes an appearance in a Bond film, regardless of the era whether it's a period piece or bearing a contemporary setting.
