    In a way, it WAS M's ashes. The ashes, she dedicated to Bond. The ashes, she KNEW, would mean something to him and would make him realize, what she wants him to do...survive, never mind what. Never saw better ashes...

    and then what happens when Ernst Stavro Blofeld head of Quantum gets a hold of M's ashes and he eats or snort them. He assumes M's knowledge and know-how and becomes an even greater threat for Bond in B24. Just something to think about.

    Wouldn't that be great though? We are in film, so the impossible is rather tempting.

    Mendes is returning, not Tamahori.

    Separate threads are irrelevant. I viewed non-spoiler threads as SF was filming and still had things spoiled for me. It's up to the poster to decide what to say, not the thread. If you enter spoiler threads and have something spoiled for you, though, then that's your fault, but there's nothing stopping anyone from entering a miscellaneous non-spoiler thread and giving away a big detail. Your best bet: avoid the forums once the movie starts filming.

    Atleast Tamahori can tell a story.

    Yes, it's usually the one told to police officers about cross dressing.

    Yes, it's called "How to make a bad Bond film".

    Or "I want to go back to the vibe of FRWL." Good one, that.

    I left the forum entirely, avoided trailers, etc. (easier for me as I am in Japan and do not watch local telly) so I was gone about 2 full months. Yes, because in Japan Skyfall opened on December 1st. Ugh! Longest wait of my life, practically! I did enjoy some threads before I left but was as careful as I could be. Definitely, definitely avoid the clapperboard threads. I was lucky and did NOT have this movie spoiled for me and I was able to enjoy some of the build-up - which, I agree, @GermanLady, is a lot of fun and part of the process.

    But it is a delicate balance of when to leave the forum. I may try to stay a bit longer this coming round, but I will still be careful. Photos also can give away too much, not just comments. Do we all remember the foraging photographer? (I forget her username; she was photographing scenes from outdoor filming of Skyfall ...)

    Yes, I can't wait for them to announce the title and the new cast members.
    I hope it's this October or November.

    @4EverBonded, I think I left when the film was released in the UK. I'll be leaving much, much earlier than that this time around.
  • SuperintendentSuperintendent A separate pool. For sharks, no less.

    I'll try to elaborate the idea for a separate photo thread.

    Comment Free Photo Thread is kept locked, only moderators have access to it. They repost pics from the original thread (no clapperboards), but without description (location, date, characters, etc.). No one has the possibility to comment. This requires a bit of extra work, but I think it's much easier to do this than to constantly keep an eye on spoilers and delete them all over the message board.

    Of course, this is up to moderators. If they decide not to do it, then I'll just have to live with it, and I'll give my best to stay away from this place till the film comes out. :)

    I'm making this suggestion for them to consider, because I think there are people like me who don't want the film spoiled. I admit it is fun to follow the filmmaking process, but nothing beats the feeling you have when you are in the theater, watching a new Bond film not knowing what to expect.

    @Superintendent, I see what you're saying now, apologies. I think that's a pretty great idea if they could pull it off.

    Trailers and tv spots also give to much a way of the beginning of the movie.
    Also
    the Skyfall house
    in fire
    be seen on picture. I expect that
    in the beginning
    and i have liked to keep in that dream.

    Whyle i think knowing or
    gunbarrel at the end
    be mabey the moost les spoiler i am worried about. There can consider to close that thread.

    A bit spoilers like the picture of Daniel Craig look over London, previous i don't have a problem with. Iam re-consider this now. Also someone in the cinema, spoild the thing with the dog for me [-X ~X(

    A lot of things are before spoilt to much, but if the movie been much better and get a better release date this not happend. See 5 things to inprove on Skyfall thread.

    as long as a story is good I don't mind being spoiled to much that being said
    James Bond lives through the whole movie and will probably win

    Something I hope we get in Bond 24: Q's lab. We haven't seen it since Goldeneye.

    Tomorrow Never Dies- He dressed up as a car salesman and met Bond in the field.

    The World Is Not Enough- MI6 got blown up so he had to make do with the Scotland HQ.

    Die Another Day- Bond was kept an unofficial agent so he had to meet him at the abandoned tube station.

    Casino Royale- Q wasn't in it.

    Quantum Of Solace- Q wasn't in it.

    Skyfall- MI6 got blown up again so he had to meet him at the gallery.

    For Bond 24 I want a big busy white lab with men in white coats testing some mental gadgets please :)

    Yes please. And although I loved the palm print gun and radio, let's see something a little more exotic to make Bond think it's Christmas time. It's been over 10 years since he had a gadget watch, personally I want to see his new Omega PO outfitted with an EMP or something similarly cool.
  • I thought it was weird how they made a big deal out of scaling down the gadgets (an exploding pen, we don't do that sort of thing anymore), and then included a DB5 complete with machine guns and an ejector seat.

    Only the guns were used in the film, so it's seen as very minimal I'd imagine.

    Well, there's a theory that blowing up the Aston was supposed to symbolize the end of the OTT gadgets, as Q stated.

    I mean, it is obvious that Bond will beat the bad guy at the end of the movie, it doesn't surprise me. I just think with SF there were a lot of 'twists,' if you want to call them that, that were spoiled for me, whether they seemed obvious to some or not: Eve is MP, M dies, Mallory is the new M.

    I am too curious not to read spoilers, but damnit! You just ruined B24 for me.

    I know I know I found out about the spoiler a few weeks ago it ruined bond 24 for me as well

    No need to see it then, money saved.
  • Twenty years since Q's lab, there's a thought. TWINE and DAD had decent substitutes, but it's still strange to think about. You're right that it needs to come back, of course, along with some other traditions (cough gunbarrel cough).

    I've all but given up on the gunbarrel. Even if it's back at the beginning, they'll probably use a crap design again (why won't they use the Brosnan one? It was the perfect update of the old Binder design), and Mendes, the producers and everyone else involved have shown that they don't give a toss about it.

    I would love it if Bond 24 opened with a gunbarrel, using the old design or the Brosnan era one, that's actually paced well (the blood now falls down the screen before the music's finished, it's way too fast). But I'm not holding my breath.

    I'm sick of being disappointed by the GB so this time, I'm going into Bond 24 expecting a crap looking gunbarrel tacked on at the end, unless I hear otherwise from people who've seen it before me. That way I can't be disappointed again.

    I imagine so! The job of directing a play more or less finishes opening night so now he can put his full focus on Bond again. On a side note what I would give to see this production of King Lear 8-|
