Article in full - no interviews though. People can wait for the magazine for that!
Thanks for that :)>-
Yes thank you!!!!
The marriage thing doesn’t suit him.
How spoilerish are these?
Of course that's his problem. He does work it out for himself in Quantum of Solace. And in following films he's confronted with more, and I recognize he tables these things pretty quickly to move on with the mission. He has a focus.
They've been putting the screws to the Craig Bond character from the start. It's consistent. Departing from it at this point would likely be a disconnect.
Now you and I need to see this through.
I do see @Thrasos point as long as it's just for this Bond but if this a norm where they have to do this every time yeah this is soap opera-ish.
Before Craig, the Casino Royale story wasn't available to establish the Bond character. Now that they've used it and played it out, it won't need to be dwelled upon. So those future stand-alone missions with a new Bond actor will play as good as ever. Or better.
Agreed they always change pattern, Lazenby/Dalton/Craig played more grounded and personal and the rest three( Sean/Roger/Pierce) go for stand alone missions. If bond history taught us anything next bond era may very well be stand alone adventures.
13 years ago I thought CR was the reboot and "learning to know Bond." Guess we are still there today. Sure...the Bond franchise has to evolve, but there are many ways of doing so. They have been catering to an older or more mature audience with Craig (all the 10-14 year old boys I teach that are into Bond, prefer the Moore and Brosnan movies), so it's a paradox that they are alienating a new generation of potential new Bond fans because they decided that character study of Bond is now an integral part.
Regarding the women... I don't mind reading that "Bond will be constantly flanked and outfoxed by a group of strong powerful women" as long as he is the one coming out on top in the end.
Surely B25 could've worked as a brand new movie as not a literal continuation of SP (minus Swann, Bond retiring, Blofeld even)
I find the more emotional and dramatic it is, the more involved I get, which means the action is more exciting because I actually care what’s happening. For years Bond fans have been saying OHMSS is the best Bond film and I don’t think it’s any coincidence that it’s the one where he actually has an emotional journey. Do Bond fans hate the bit in FYEO where he visits Tracy’s grave? I don’t think so.
That was my point
You do have a point and I think the same way but how come mine and a lot of people who are Craig fans have FRWL ranked at 1st position or the best bond film of all time.
I think that's on Craig and Broccoli. As he says in the article he felt there was unfinished business and had an idea of how he really wanted his run to conclude.
Yeah, so true....but for the sake of the long wait & the desire to make SP look better....once NTTD is released, we sincerely hope NTTD turns out to be a thrilling Bond flick.
