Which means blank check from British tax-payers.
Various mix of cars, Bondgirls and locations (No Astin Martin please!)
Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson presents...
If Bond 27 already be possible to be made after the discovery of real terrible truth (Directer almoost rated...), then focus should be on solo missions,gadgets, gamble and that kind of things. But it is possible, if focus be less then only England. For example that sugestion i did before about making plot about England and Arabic part of United Nation stil standing. I sitl think there can mix this up with Water plot, that terrible truth.
A bit like where England and Turkey strike together against the Russian's in FRWL or England and India against a villian of India in Octopussy or England and Russian strike against a villian of England as in Goldeneye or England and China as in Tomorrow Never Dies. Make a story where England, America (Felix) AND the middle east & Germany strike against spirit of Eliot Carver, Dominic Green and Blofeld.
And the next Bond films should illustrate the villain's plan better (Don't just talk about it in five minutes in some conference room but show us what they are actually doing).
And finally concentrate on few locations and set pieces but really make use of them (Don't just move from one random place to the other but introduce us to the country Bond is in).
This was the problem I had with Spectre on 2nd and 3rd viewings.
Doctor Julius No and Ernst Stavro Blofeld from YOLT would like to have a word with you.
But on the whole you are right.
Anyway, things we want to return? We need Bond to look around his hotel room for bugs again. It just needs to happen.
I don't argue that, but IMO the "This time it is personal"- angle has been beaten to Death since 1995 by now. A LTK type of Movie is fine every now and then, but not almost every time.
Yes, hear, hear. It's 'been personal' for Bond in LTK, GE, DAD, QOS and liberally speaking TWINE, CR, SF and SP. Enough.
You are right, I just said that so that more people would agree. As for SP sometimes I like to forget entirely the brother connection...
"What's the matter, James? No glib remark? No pithy comeback?"
"You know, James and I shared everything."
"...the same six minutes you gave me... least I could do for a friend."
"He was your friend and now you will kill him."
"...Or if all the martinis silenced the screams of all the dead ones you failed to protect."
"You know, James? I was always better."
"For England, James?"
You are entitled to your own opinion of course, but they do stretch the personal angle quite far. If not for later films stretching it further it would still be the second-most personal of them all after its predecessor.
Sounds like Alec is taking it personal, not Bond.
Yes CR gets a bit of a pass because there's no personal element until the third act. And the personal element in TND is minor in the wider scope of the film.
But Bond is the one feeling the weight of these personal jibes, i.e. the jibe about the 'dead ones you failed to protect'. He feels it all during the graveyard scene. Bond is thinking about this himself as well during the beach scene. And the final scene on top of the cradle was catharsis for Bond.
The personal element in GE strengthened the film as opposed to bogging it down unlike SP but come on, it's personal for Bond in that mission.
Bond gets his mission
Flirts a little with MoneyPenny
Visits Q for hisbgadgets and car
Goes to his mission
Meets the main Bond girl
Party or Casino scene
Meets the other Bond girl sleeps with her
Goes with his mission
Meet the Villain fight him
Love scene with the main Bond girl
The end. James Bond will return
Of course all these with great chases, a good henchman, humor, exotic locations and everything which comes with James Bond.
And please since now on. I want teh films to be standalone no more one film connected to the next one.
-Bond girls à la Goodnight and Honey Ryder
-The USA as location
-a megalomaniac villain with a real plan à la Elliot Carver, Goldfinger, Drax or Zorin
-MI6 not behaving like a club of imbeciles
-colour and light and NO colour filters
Oh yes! That's what I meant really.
Additionally they could do skiing action scenes in Aspen.
"avenging alec won't being him back, i don't want you running off on some personal vendetta"
"you didn't get him killed"
"neither did you, don't take it personal"
"For englad james?" "no, for me!"
Goldeneye for me is as personal as it gets, thats what makes the fight at the end so great and actually the whole movie.
I'm afraid we will always have a personal story in some form from now on. Look at other contemporary movies, this is simply what the mainstream audience craves for atm.
I think they would have trouble understanding the Bond character or his motivations without that.
I don't necesserily like that, i'm just saying.
I would prefer mission based Bond
