So recently I decided to watch every Bond film starting with Dr. No to Skyfall. I have began to appreciate the older films a lot more! The last time I watched the older films I was around 16-17 and now I am 21 and I am starting to enjoy the humor.
There's a lot of scenes like where you see Bond and Jaws smiling at each other before every fight, those epic one liners and sex jokes, which make Q and M mad. The boat chase in "Moonraker", which turns his boat into a hovercraft, or seeing the lotus in "TPWLM" come out of the water and drive back to the road. Seeing all the civilian looks and gasps... Does anyone miss these types of scenes?? I know it's hard to picture a lot of these comedic scenes in a Bond film now a days but these types of scenes made the movies for me.
I can't imagine a Connery or Moore film without a constant sarcastic Bond. To me I feel like Craig should start to incorporate that a lot more. Make more jokes and act more comedic about certain situations..
I think it would make it more Bond if you saw a car chase with him and Hinx in "SP", and you see Bond turning and winking or smiling at Hinx and Hinx returning the smile.
I know a lot of people dislike scenes like this but to me that's what a Bond movie is...
Bond always finds a way to joke about a certain situation.
Even in "CR", when Craig was getting his balls whacked he was joking around saying "Harder", and when Fields threatened to arrest Bond he made a joke regarding handcuffs. So what do you guys think??
