Indeed, and it shouldn't be too OTT. The idea that any human being could be able to taste which original 19th century vintage a cherry is based on is admittedly fun, but also quite ridiculous... I want Bond to be a connoissaur, not a psychic...

- kicking off the shoes and pouring a drink
- snooping around in his downtime, PPK in hand

@jetsetwilly Number 2 is an absolute must.
This is definitely one of the things I hope to see return. I would even like to see this kind of character taken further, as suggested by @FoxRox , by becoming a main female villain. Elektra is definitely a good template as she's both a femme fatale and an antagonist manipulating events. This kind of combination of traits is something that I hope to find in future installments.
Great minds think alike, bro! ;)
(And PLEASE, no more London for a while!)
London seems to be in nearly every movie for some reason. Even Marvel superhero movies. One of the nice things about the Star Wars films is that they don’t include London :))
Check out the filming locations of Rogue One
Canary Wharf Underground Station, Canary Wharf, Isle of Dogs, London, England, UK
Ahhh... another illusion shattered :((
I say start adapting other novels. Icebreaker, The Union Trilogy, Trigger Mortis and Forever and a Day (with Anthony Horowitz writing) would be great places to start. Take a break from original screenplays for a while (namely from Purvis and Wade). People want stand alone missions again? The books are mostly them. If they are interested in multiple movie story lines, plan them in advance. Not at the last minute like Daniel Craig’s.
Generally more Terence Young-style spy thrillers.
Smoking. Drinking. Other stuff abusing.
More card games. More any other risky games and stuff, NSNA-style, but much more serious and polished than that mess.
And I like where Dalton and Craig led Bond, he should stay human with complex emotions and inner constitution, not superhero machine.
He should be an effective top-level assassin that is damaged inside and has his own struggles that he masks with over the top bravado and other stuff.
We should see those assassinations in thrillful in risk way, and see what effects they have on Bond.
At least I believe so. All the rest they have already.
A game where he exposes a cheat...
He a Mi6 agent licence to kill,
I remembered when Spectre, SMERSH were were scared of Bond
Yeah, I was thinking the same recently. I was watching Goldfinger. Really enjoyed the golf game and Bond snooping around his facility, and I thought, when was the last time we had anything like that in a modern Bond film? Obviously he’s never been a realistic spy, but he did used to feel like an unrealistic spy, rather than a more conventional unrealistic action hero. I think it’s probably an unintentional consequence of the Craig era’s character centric approach, and the ongoing theme of how a ruined childhood (or surrogate childhood, in Silva’s case) can mess you up. It’s been very thematically consistent, but it has given us a few creepy weirdos with remote hideaways in a row now, without any sort of legitimate fronts for their operations. So, they’re more psychological in threat, and there’s not really a lot for Bond to investigate, because they don’t pretend to be anything other than villains. Even Saffin’s plot was more about the metaphor than the doomsday scheme.
I’ve been fine with that, because I’ve really enjoyed what they’ve done with the last few films. But I have missed the kind of thing you’re both on about here, and I’d like to see more stuff like that back again. Bond investigating a big business type and uncovering their evil plan. One upping them
over cards or some other game, working undercover, snooping around at night to gather intel. More spy stuff like that would be cool.
She wasn't a very memorable one but you did have Le Chiffre's girlfriend who poisoned Bond in CR
Yes, true. I completely forgot her for the moment. My bad. Valenka...
Bring back David Arnold and also David Gassner.
