    The question is how much do you loosen up before you get too loose? It's a very slippery slope.

    I don't deny that it's risky. In the hands of a Tamahori and with a weak lead it can obviously end in disaster. But what I sense is that EON is just beginning to get a sense back of what Bond is all about. It's not a cartoon comedy, but it's not deadly serious Bourne-style thriller either.

    I guess what I want is a return to the confident, strident, sometimes OTT film making of the 60s, 70s and 80s, where those involved so completely understood the character that they were able to stretch the boundaries but always (almost always) knew when they were taking it too far or simply straying beyond anything to do with what makes Bond Bond.

    From what I've read of Skyfall I am reasonably confident that Logan, Mendes et al have achieved just this. A film grounded in reality but with some outlandish characters, sets and scenarios.

    Camp?

    No. A few quips & gadgets don't make it camp. I don't want DAF or DAD part deux.

    New gun barrel
    Quantum
    Mr. White
    An auction, not casino
    Bond in a modern supercar
    Bond in disguise (ala OP)
    Craig with longer-than-skyfall, combed hair

    You can likely tell OP played recently :P

    My wish list would be...

    - M to stay in the office and only appear for three or four scenes
    - A new country or an old one that hasn't been used for the films in over 20 years
    - Quantum to return
    - Felix to return and have a few more scenes
    - A world threatening plot
    - Bond getting the girl at the end, with MI6 unsure whether or not he's still alive
    - Christmas 2014 release

    All I want for Bond 24 is: Sam Mendes returning! (also, Roger Deakins, Dennis Gassner, Daniel Kleinman, Stuart Baird and David Arnold/Thomas Newman) ;-)

    Actors: Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw.

    My wish list would be :
    - gunbarrel at the opening
    - Bond getting the girl at the end

    And what I would love now is a decent adaptation of the Moonraker book : beginning with M taking Bond to its club where he confronts the villains at cards. The Moonraker plot could be transpose to our time, with an Indian industrial building a part of its spaceship in England.
  • Totally agree with M staying put in the office. Especially after SF, I feel that M out in the field should be rested for a good few films.

    The GB surely has to be at the start. I understand the narrative reasons for not having it at the start for SF but surely with EVERYTHING established now seems the perfect time to put it back in at the start.

    I want the return of ESB as well. Nothing involving a cat being stroked but a serious adversary to Bond who could be his match both physicaly and mentally. Maybe even set it up so that Bond gives him the scar!

    I'm very happy with John Logan having the idea for a two parter as well. Means he's got something that has enough scope to strech over two films.

    A grand, action-adventure in the tradition of GF, Spy, TB etc

    It's about time. They've spent 6 years working through the character issues to get him to the point where he can finally say 'I'm James Bond!'...in fact 3 times they've done that now....

    Meanwhile, my life is passing me by. So, can we have a good old-fashioned Bond movie now please?

    All the elements are now present and correct and DC has earned the right to do all the trad stuff...so let's go for it.

    On the other hand, I suspect DC is still troubling himself with exploring further character elements which might lead us down a different route. I'm also a little put off by this B24-25 two parter talk...just one proper action-adventure movie at a time please.

    Also - keep going back to the source material. The more they can root it in Fleming, the better it always is. In terms of rebooting - Blofeld is ripe for a makeover and/or SPECTRE (you can have Quantum if you like too...)

    I really hope its not a 2 part film, two separate films with small links just like the novels had

    Wait and see. Way too early.

    British actor Gareth Marks as the villain (could be prime for a Blofeld type villain or a meglomaniac type) would be my first wish for Bond 24. Gunbarrel at start would be nice again, maybe have an updated version of the 007 theme used in film also. A good story with M back in office only. TLD,TB type adventure for DC?

    Mendes again
    M, Q and Moneypenny
    Exotic glamorous locations
    Emeli Sande to sing the song..
    Anthony Hopkins or Gary Oldman for the villain
    Paul Bettany for henchman
    Olivia Wilde (main Bond girl)
    Genevieve Padelecki (evil Bond girl)
    (main girl survives, and has light hearted 'romantic' scene with Bond right at the end)
  • Emeli Sande to sing the song is a great shout...

    Indeed. I doubt she's on their radar unfortunately.
  • There is Rebecca Ferguson from the X Factor that has a very Bond voice.
    Depending on if she is in the bargain bucket in a couple of years time or not I would say she would be good as well

    Yes, Rebecca Furguson would be another one that would be really good for a Bond song..

    If we go for a bloke has to be buble. The opening of Cry me a river could be a bond song any day

    Yes, if they went for a male soloist, he would be perfect..

    Me too. Wish Giacchino hadn't done Mission. Probably the most Barryesque composer today.

    Was not that impressed with MI:3 (IMO Seymour Hoffmann as villain was wasted) and for of Giacchino's score. I quite liked his STAR TREK score (and, no, I did not watch THE INVINCIBLES)...

    More Bond in the field on his own, not constantly communicating with M/Q/Moneypenny.
    Bond meeting different characters/allies in the field, like in FRWL.
    More time spent in one location.
    Speaking of locations, EGYPT.
    More ruthless, indiscriminate killing- plus moments such as the 'I can be alot more persuasive Tracy' scene in OHMSS, which is a great scene.
    Bond going into the villains layer for the final third of the film, and having a massive shoot-out.

    You should really give THE INCREDIBLES a view. Excellent film, great score.
    But yes, I think Trek is Giacchinos best yet. The opening is powerful.

    I would prefer James Newton Howard really enjoying the bourne legacy sound track




    As for locations Craig's bond hasn't been to France so maybe that is the European location and then on from there?

    Ralph Fiennes returning as M.
    Miss Moneypenny portrayed not by Harris.
    Gunbarrel at the beginning!
    David Arnold to return.
    Titles by Daniel Kleinman.
    Song sung by man.
    No Quantum.
    Aston Martin Vanquish, could be invisible, today's technologies allow this. Not like in DAD.
    Plot set as NATO-Russian conflict.
  • My wish list for Bond 24

    The year 2014
    The title is Risico or non-Fleming titles

    Flirting scene between Bond and Moneypenny
    More advanced gadgets and cars
    Have 3 Bond girls (not impossible)
    Director should be British citizen
    Have a henchman or two
    Ski chasing
    Bond wears Navy uniform
    And also return of Persian cat

    My Bond 24 wish list.

    Please film it in either 35mm or Imax 70mm. DO NOT use digital again...please.

    I know much has been made of the brilliant photography of SF but for me it did not blow my socks off. Yes there was some outstanding shots but the rest looked pretty average IMO. CR on the other hand was beautiful though out. Lovely rich deep colours, warm when it needed to be a dark for the later scenes.

    Bring back Campbell and Meheux for 24
