Very good review, @Pierce2Daniel, thanks. Sam Mendes, Deakins and George Mackay for Bond 26. I'd watch that.
Yeah I would like to have him back because I thought he was great and had a real handle on how a Bond feels, whilst still adding to that and making it something more (he struggled with the plot to Spectre but I think there are all sorts of pressures going into a film like that so I don't blame him solely), whereas I think Fukunaga essentially didn't manage to evoke that Bond feel.
But he himself said that he'd said it all with Skyfall and had to be heavily persuaded to do one more, and as Spectre didn't turn out very successfully I would say the chances of him wanting to do another one, especially as Craig is now literally out of the picture, are pretty much zero.
I know what you mean about Fukanaga not really being able to evoke that same Bond 'feel' in the same way Mendes could. I do wonder how Mendes would have handled NTTD in an alternate universe and what story adaptations he would have pushed for.
Yeah that's a nice thought. In many ways I think NTTD had a more solid overall story than Spectre did, so it would have been very interesting to see it with Mendes' style.
