They need to go completely back to the drawing board, back to basics. Wipe all thoughts of what we know from memory, and just focus on how this series cam fit into the modern era. Not the man, the franchise. I think it's only a matter of time before they have to embrace the more larger than life, and irreverent aspects again. There's only so long we can sidestep that stuff, before it becomes the elephant in the room. I think with SF and SP they have attempted to address it, but it's a bit like Brosnan trying the serious characterization in TWINE and DAD. It just does not suit the actor. And nor does the suave side of Bond suit Craig, really. We need the swagger side of Bond back, and done right this time without being tied down by emotional drama.
Definitely agree, As far as vibe goes, I'd take the Brosnan films over the Craig films too.
I like Chris for Bond to be honest
If anyone has a better suggestion than Hemsworth I am happy to hear it. He's the perfect age pretty much to take over.
He is quite a watchable guy, but hasn't got a Bond vibe about him at all.
...in Ian Fleming's Alrighty Then!
He will however be considered a very good Bond. But Connery and I think Moore will continue to dominate the rankings.
That's fine. I get it. I missed Q, the flirting with MP, the mission briefing, all that stuff. But we need to look at this as a longer-termed game. It's a 60 year franchise almost. If they go right back to Bond formula again after Craig leaves, what was the point in the first place to strip it all down and reset?
Eh? Hemsworth looks nothing like how he did in HaA. I think the guy is a great candidate for the role of Bond. Good height, can manipulate his physique accordingly quite easily, is a good actor and has a natural charisma to bring on both the levity and for when Bond needs to get down to business. He also knows how to properly and look great in a suit and most importantly he's entertaining.
Well, I can only see HaA with him, which mean I will probably never find him a good fit. As mentioned, I still think he looks like a "beach dude", only with a haircut.
Yep. Put him in Baywatch, not Bond.
Turner is probably my top choice if we were to in fact get another Bond film in the not too distant future post Craig. Just shave that damned beard and give him his AND THEN THERE WERE NONE haircut.
That trend has finished now. The bigger money takers recently have all skewed towards a lighter approach. Simply go back to a mid to late Connery/Moore type affair. That style worked for decade's. It will work again.
Wasn't it a highly overrated recent Bond film that said "Sometimes the old ways are the best?"
That's part of whats so frustrating with EON's current woes. They are so easily fixed.
