    You mean that beast Elvis wasn't enough of a threat for you? Some people are just impossible to please.

    What can I say, I'm demanding ;)

    I have to agree, but I can't help thinking Chuck Norris vs Bruce Lee :P. Earlier, I posted that I wanted a return of the realistic fight scenes.

    How about this-- a primary henchman who is a martial arts expert?

    Another wish: A "lighter" film. I wish that the treatment will be similar to Skyfall's pre-title in Turkey.

    I always want a big henchman. Always thought Michael Clark Duncan would have made a great villain! But sadly we lost him, however? Having seen him again on the Bigfoot files over here in the UK? What about Russian heavyweight boxer Nikoli Valuev? Forgive the spelling if it is not correct? Can you imagine DC's Bond trying to dispose of this guy?!!! :O
  • I'd love to see a remake of OHMSS. Not a remake in the strict sense but a new version that took the key ingredients of that movie and reinterpreted them. So we would meet Tracy again and Bond would fall in love and marry her and Blofeld would be the villain. Give him a new scheme, change the locations and action sequences. But re-adapt the spirit and tone of the book and film within the DC era context.

    For Blofeld; my top choices would be Denzel Washington or Daniel Day-Lewis:

    For Tracy; Rachel Weisz or Marion Coitlard

    I would also love to see the return of a bad girl Fiona Volpe/Xenia Onatopp character. We haven't had a good one since GE. I also think Ruth Wilson would own that part:

    It would be quite un-PC, but a villain/henchman with a German or Russian accent would be fantastic.

    I`m agreed that we don`t want a gunbarrel on the front of Bond 24.
    after all of 3 Craig`s don`t have it, that would just be weird.... XD

    For Bond 24 I want Nathan Lane. And screaming flowers seen, please.

    While I don't want remakes I love the idea of Washington as the head Villian of Quantum

    Denzel Washington as Blofeld? Isn't Blofeld Polish and from German and maybe French origins?

    A Fleming Villian and title I can't be the only one who got chills when M said the Casino Royale trailer (and in the film)

    "The man was Le Chiffe private banker to the world's Terrorists which would explain why he could set up a high stake poker Game at Casino Royale in Montenegro."

    I could just imagine Mallory (the new M) saying

    "This is the big one 007 Operation Risico to be kept off the book General Von Hammerstien is one of the biggest smugglers"

    :)

    Or Bond meeting his nemesis and saying "So Quantum is indeed the property of a lady".
  • For Bond 24 I'd like to see:
    - GB at END! I think, it's a new Bond area, and in the last two films it was on the end, don't change again.
    - M's briefing on the beginning, a litte sequence with monepenny and then solo. Mabe with Leiter.
    - The return of Quantum with Mr. White.
    - Bond in a Royal Navy uniform.
    - Craig snowboarding.
    - More charm from Craig with the Bond girl(s). I really think Severine needed more screentime.

  • I'd like to see Craig's Bond in an Alpine setting. Surely it's time to see Craig in a pair of ski's; seducing beautiful women by a roaring log-fire. Every Bond actor has played in the snow, so it's high time Craig continued that tradition.

    Did Sean Connery? Not that I am against the idea.

    @SonofSean, I think we all want that. It would be great to see, and even if he doesn't ski, at least some sort of snowy setting that plays into the mission. I think so far we've had him at the ending of QoS and that's it? I want to see some kind of sequence play out in snow that's really good.

    Also the opening of Casino Royale.

    @Samuel001, I contemplated that one, didn't think there was snow in it, for some reason. Now it's obvious!

    i do think its time for another snowy location again. We haven't had one since DAD
  • Of course, all but Connery. The trend for 'snowy' Bond's began with OHMSS.
  • QBranchQBranch Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

    I think the closest we got with Craig was the <a href=" Crack the Case ad</a>, where he sports a beanie and jacket in the snow before hopping on the train. I'm also keen for a proper snow sequence- perhaps this time with Bond pursuing the enemy in something that could tear up the place, like a <a href="http://chictraveler.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Snowshoe-Mountain-Snowcat-Tours.jpg">snowcat</a>, although we did see a couple in the TLD ice chase.

    And with Deakins as cinematographer that snow would look out of this world against the backdrop of a tension filled action sequence. His lighting for the snow sequences in True Grit made my mind explode. THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

    With any luck, it's just a matter of time until Craig gets his snow sequence. Now that you mention it, I'm salivating at the thought of Deakins being the cinematographer. It would be tough to beat the sequences in OHMSS or TSWLM, but the sheer beauty of it all with Deakins would give them a run for their money.

    This is more my Bond 25 wishlist now but anyway, here it is.

    *Danny Boyle directing

    *Shatterhand or an original title, please don't use the Hilderbrand Rarity or something like that

    *A proper well paced gunbarrel at the beginning of the film

    *Christopher Eccleston and Giancarlo Esposito as the villains (one of them being Blofeld)

    *Dean Norris as Felix

    *No more arty fight scenes like the skyscraper bit in SF, more brutal fight scenes like the scrap on the stairs in CR

    *Noel Gallagher or The Stone Roses doing the theme song

    *Sheridan Smith as the lead Bond girl

    *The new Lotus Esprit, maybe with a few gadgets

    *Danny Keilman doing the titles again

    *Roger Deakins doing the cinematography again

    *The castle and Garden Of Death from YOLT

    *Fiennes and Wishaw returning

    *Less of the regular MI6 crew, no ear radio, no cutting back to HQ during action scenes

    *Ireland, Australia and Japan as locations

    *A proper old school henchman that's more than capable of doing Bond in. Somebody that could really beat the shit out of Craig's Bond.

    *Some real gadgets. Nothing too OTT but I'd like more than what Skyfall had (a rip off of the LTK signature gun, and a radio).
  • My Bond 24 wish list:

    - GB at the start.
    - Bond in a navy uniform
    - Delve into a bit more of Bond's past.
    - If Ireland is going to be a location then please god no stupid leprechaun accents it drives me insane, nobody in Ireland talks like that.
    - I want to see Bond shake his backside and dance! (Never going to happen but a girl can only dream)
    - I want to see Bond's flat!
    - Somebody like 006?
    - Aston Martin DBs/DB9 for the win!
    - Jeffrey Wright as Felix
    - For locations: Europe and Asia

    Manu Benette as a henchman (crixus from Spartacus/ pale ork from the hobbit movies)

    Bone-crunching, brutal, dirty, wincing fist fights

    Fight scenes to last no less than 40 seconds

    Interiors with a real sense of luxury and oppulance

    Less intrusions from MI6

    Bond to have at least 2 sex scenes with 2 women that last no less than 50 seconds each

    And here's a left field casting suggestion; cast Martin Freeman (Watson from Sherlock/Bilbo Baggins from the Hobbit movies) as the lead villain.


  • I forgot: Bring back David Arnold. Or get someone else who isn't Thomas Newman. The score was the most disappointing part of SF for me.

    This! I liked a few tracks, but as a whole it was pretty unmemorable. Arnold brings a fresh sound to the series while paying some tribute to John Barry.
