With the therad of chossing the most representative film of each Bond actor I realized how similar were the tenures of Pierce and Criag
Well how similar have been so far since there is chance for Craig to do more but here we go
First Casino Royale and Goldeneye both having a great debut which made people love them as Bond with a film which looks very Bondian but still makes Bond more human and well non of those films were written for them since the beggining.
Goldeneye was adapted for Pierce after Dalton steped down and the film was originally written for Dalton.
Casino Royale was the first novel writen by Fleming so its a film that could have used Pierce, Connery or Dalton in their respective debuts and it would have worked equally good.
So both succed perfectly good in a film which story wasn't made just for them.
Quantum of Solace and Tomorrow never dies both very fun action flicks which were critizced for being an action hollywood film with Bond in it than a proper Bond film.
My defense on both, they do have their very Bondian Moments
Tomorrow never dies: Bond getting his gadgets from Q, the party scene and the hotel scene with Paris.
Quantum: The opera scene, Bond At the hotel with Agent Fields and Agent fileds being killed just like Gill in Goldfinger.
The World is not enough and Skyfall
This time both had a very good and proper Bond film with the right Bond elements in it and a great story which M was more involed than in any other Ocassion.
So its in their third film where Craig and Piecre had their Bond Movie made for them and i loved both films.
Spectre and Die another day their most over the top Bond adventure which did feel very Bondian but more than making it one more film for each actor its an Homage movie to the franchise which sacrifized a script for great style, fun and homages and nods everywhere to the past films.
