  • Is smoking any more of a taboo than vaping??? Now that is annoying.

    In film, it makes characters look cool, so I don't see why we shouldn't get it back.

    Forget it. The only way that is going to happen is if they make a period piece.

    No smoking. Living in a post-smoking society has been probably the best change in the uk in the last 10 years.

    They don't have the balls to have him return to smoking, and I can only assume it'd be "harder" to pull off these days since you can't really smoke anywhere like you could in the 60's on.

    The comics are handling it pretty well. I'm sure the movies could do it, too. And yes, Bond is told not to smoke in places so he sneaks it off to someplace else.

    "Sir, you can't smoke here."
    "Do I look like I give a damn?"

    Seeing Bond in his office has been mentioned I believe, and couldn t he be working on his hand-to-hand combat manual, as he does in one of the books?

    I do not need to see bumbling background people (Smithers, etc.) in Q's lab. I had enough of those scenes over 20 films.

    I'd like to see the henchman return at the end for one last battle with Bond, like they always did with the late Connery/early Moore films.

    I think that henchman ending might have been a Guy Hamilton thing. Each of his four films ended with a final short battle. In GF's case it was the main villain instead, but I always liked that style ending to a Bond film. He's on his way somewhere after his mission had been accomplished and has one last confrontation to deal with. I'd love to see that again.

    I actually thought there was an outside chance we would see that with Hinx the first time I saw SP. Some kind of final showdown in London or with Madeleine on holiday. Everything had been set up that way with all the referencing to classic Bond films. But at the same time I knew that might feel a little too Austin Powers-ish.

    Silly for a secret agent to carry. In real life it would be bulging out of your suit.

    It's funny you should mention that, because I watched OP yesterday and noticed Smithers had a scene outside of Q HQ. He was driving a cab which followed Kamal Khan after the auction at Bond's behest. I thought it would be nice to see a regular like that again.

    This. I'd enjoy a truly excellent, memorable score with the next film.

    Yes, a theme would be nice, but I could live with simply great music.

    I like the 'intellectual' equals like Vesper & Natalya but have no time for the action girls like Wai Lin personally.
  • Posts: 19,339

    A film release schedule would be a good idea.

    With the opening gunbarrel reestablished, knowing the next mission's title at film's end would be over the top awesome. Two classic film staples to relish if they can get themselves on a schedule.

    Surely the filmmakers can see that as part of the unique draw to their franchise and its built-in audience. And part of the modern viewer is already hard-wired to look for Easter eggs and material in and after the credits.

    Hear, hear! I wouldn't even mind if they changed the title later, a la FYEO/MR. Just give me the hope...
