How about his black clothes in SP? And when he goes to see Mr White he has clothes inspired by the French army.
Two different things - sort yourself out Francisco.
Whilst I'd be happy to see Daniel Craig return, I'd like it if he's not persuaded too if his heart isn't in it. Reluctant actors don't give their all.
A new actor in the role would also allow for a shift in tone and story.
A non revenge plot, involving espionage, a decent villain who does not know Bond and a Bond girl who does not work for any intelligence service. Keep the Mi6 stock company in London and hopefully get Felix Leiter into the mix as well.
Is the 007 theme the little nelly one. And the bond theme the one used in FRWL for searching his room?
Anyway do they have the rights?
The 007 theme
The James Bond theme
The composers use them less frequently as the John Barry estate is paid royalties rather than the composer seeing any cash. No rights issues.
Amen. Bond and Swann waiting at the train station to get picked up instead of knowing where the base is and at least attempting to sneak in at night was an absolute joke.
They wait of the car to pick them up, lol.
They were waiting for another train.
How do they even know the car will come? Do they plan to just sit there forever?
Another imponderable about SP's script.
Why? He's in danger of falling into Roger's dirty old man trap.
Bond should be placed by someone in their 30's or 40's, and he shouldn't deride Bond as a misogynist as Craig has.
Craig think Bond should be PC - time to eject.
My assumption was that they were waiting for another train, they don't expect the car.
Waiting for another train to go where?
They know the coordinates of the base from Mr White's aged computer so you'd like to think they've also noticed no train tracks go there.
In any event there's only one train line so where is the next train going to go that the original one wasn't?
Perhaps they are just waiting for the next one because the conductor booted them off at the next station for smashing up half the train?
I can understand how it works from Blofeld's end - he is either sending the car to pick up Hinx or he has access to the smart blood and knows Bond is coming his way (presumably the reason he sent Hinx to kill them on the train. But then doesn't he want Bond alive so he can taunt him? In which case why send Hinx at all? Beats me) but what is Bond's reasoning for sitting at a deserted station in the desert?
As usual with SP's script when you ask a simple question you end up with more questions than answers.
I just assumed they were switching lines to get to closer to the location. It stops at a station, which suggests you can get multiple trains from there, otherwise why have a station? It's in the middle of nowhere. Blofeld clearly knows where they are, but they don't know he does. Honestly, it seemed pretty reasonable to me. They're clearly surprised when the Phantom rocks up.
All this, yes that's right. The logic in all that just astounds me. You're on a secret mission, but you BRING YOUR LUGGAGE ALONG WITH YOU?
He knows the coordinates, yet PACKS A TUXEDO TO GO KILL BLOFELD?
THIS is where you dress in black and do a night strike, ala TB and GE.
Good grief that all was so unfortunate.
Like I said above, I had assumed he was travelling to a closer location - from which he would plan an attack. Blofeld moves the goalposts when the Phantom arrives.
Just that bit of OTT that characterize classic Bond participants (Klebb, Khan, Orumov, Kaufmann etc.). I found it was missing that.
The closest film it tries to be like visually is TSWLM imho, but that film had charisma popping out of every pore.
- A score that actually sounds like a Bond score.
- A megalomaniac villain with a masterplan to dominate/destroy mankind.
- A villainess (Bond girl).
- A bombshell dumb/naive Bond girl (à la Ursula Andress or Britt Ekland).
- Bond on skis.
- Tom Ford's breathtaking perfect clothes.
- Action in space (satellite, space shuttle kidnapping etc. / not Bond in space)
- Diamonds, give me Diamonds!
- Dinner with the villain
- Shirley Bassey, still a million miles better than whining Adele.
- Decent movie posters.
- 2 year gaps between movies. It's doable for Heaven's Sake.
Mary Goodnight was a recurring character in the novels. It is about damn time she returned.
It's about time Bond bucked the trend rather than being carried along by the current of anti male feminist opinion.
Just watched QOS, there is a lot to criticise in that movie, but also a lot to praise.
Olga Kurylenko should return in Bond 25, somehow with time passing she is becoming my favourite Bond girl of the Craig-era.
It also would make sense to bring her back.
