Dominic Greene may have been among the very worst. His schemes and he are much like many real-life schemes and persons. Certainly, some folks don't want much real life stuff in an entertainment, but he sure qualifies as a capable and despicable villain.
In hindsight, since Quantum is the "Extortion" part of the Craig saga, it might have been worthwhile having Greene be in charge of the Vesper blackmail but c'est la vie
Ah- by which you mean best! :D I got confused for a moment; it's tricky when we're talking about villains! :D
Absolutely agree! Amalric does perfectly well with what his given. It's all very detached.
Yes it's a good point; would the film have been better served if Camille was trying to take revenge on Greene himself rather than having her own separate villain in Medrano? Even for Bond himself Greene is portrayed as just another stepping stone to getting to the real villain who he's after, which makes the film feel a bit inessential.
I guess you could say the same of something like Thunderball where Largo is only Number Two, not Number One; and yet it doesn't feel quite as obvious in TB.
Assuming the rumors of the daughter are actually true, what if Safin's final act is to inject her with something that would make her vulnerable to the virus. Since she shares Bond and Swann's DNA, she would be immune until Safin injects her and makes her just as vulnerable as the Spectre members at the Cuba party. After destroying the lab, Bond and his daughter are the only remaining carriers of the virus. What if Bond realizes he can never be physically close to her otherwise he would trigger the symptoms and kill her, so the movie ends with him watching her from afar as kind of a guardian angel, similar to Ethan Hunt watching over his wife at the end of Ghost Protocol. It would give the film a very tragic ending but would give Bond some meaning in his life to be silently and distantly watching over his family. Not saying this really makes any sense but hopefully it was fairly coherent.
Also, I am pretty sure the track I'll Be Right Back is Bond's final showdown with Safin and ends with Bond killing him. Just a thought.
Yeah you're right. I guess it should be Camille vs Medrano and bond vs greene but instead greene is devalued and made into something of a stepping stone for the characters, therefore his not as much of a threatening presence as he had potential to be.
I speculated the first part of your theory ages ago. I think the trailer presents it rather clearly but the rest of your theory is very interesting.
I've edited my post to give you credit. Yeah I think so too re: your spoiler tagged post. He will be desperate and angry.
I love that they use a photo of him not wearing any shoes at all to illustrate a pair he will be wearing :D
The only provided link is no longer working, as you've noted, and we feel it's best not to continue sharing/having members request links, since it clearly isn't officially available yet.
Yep, don’t poke the bear. Lol
That was my question too.
Unprecedent marketing effort, but cast Is missing except for brief parts of podcasts
UK, Only show booked: Graham Norton show on friday 24 with full cast
USA, Not a single booking on talkshows, not even Craig:
A few extended/new shots.
I wonder if that’s because of COVID-19 restrictions or fears? The idea being to keep everyone in isolation until the royal premier. Or maybe they’ll concentrate talk show appearances around the American release on October 8th.
This would be my guess — talk show appearances are marketing. No need to market until right before, especially given the last eighteen months lol.
None of the late night programs announced anything past this week. Only a couple of the day time talk shows announced guests up to the end of next week.
I'd expect none of the cast to do the U.S. talk show rounds until two weeks from now (Oct. 4-8) at the earliest.
I'm watching Colbert, Kimmel, Corden, etc, every week via YT. And you're right about Oct. Makes sense. Didn't think of that. All focus has been on the UK date/worldpremiere events. Completely forgot about US opening.
