And of course being lazy isn´t a calling card for being called in the next time. But it would be at least as logical if they looked for some fresh point of view when they want to bring Bourne back after nine years and especially after Bourne remembered his full identity. It´s not rare that a writer runs out of ideas after two or three films with the same main character.
Now, my personal analysis on Gilroy:
That said, the second Bourne film wasn't too much of a good one compared to the first and the third. And while I liked the spin-off, there wasn't much of a story to offer other than elements of evasion and brilliant action sequences. And back to the third film, the script that Gilroy submitted was rewritten by Scott Z. Burns and George Nolfi, and that alone says something, doesn't it? It's best to move on and leave things that no longer work behind.
I don't WANT to see M running around with a gun getting involved in everything though.
And yet you claim you liked Bourne Legacy a film written and directed by Tony Gilroy
Like I said previously in my opinion in a perfect world bond 25 would be like this
The Hildebrand Rarity written by Chris Mcquarrie and Tony Gilroy (story by Chris Mcquarrie and Ian Fleming) directed by Tony Gilroy Novelization by Brad Meltzer Title song by Yes (or rush either way I am happy)
Yeah I get that I am over the moon will I though probably not.
I don't know, perhaps it was the winter setting in Legacy that I liked. But, still, when you look at the story, it doesn't seem to have a big goal, other than Renner's character, Aaron Cross travelling around the globe to get a supply of the pills that keep him alive. Like I said, I liked it for the action sequences and incidental elements. That is all.
Don't depend on my opinion, mate. Yours as good as mine and anyone else's. If you like it, so be it. :-bd
This was actually reported here a few weeks back, the very same night it was aired. It does indeed bode well in hoping Craig will be back at least for one more
Lee was better able to bring that balance between disciplined mentor where needed and jovial fatherly figure in my view. I may have felt this way because Fiennes/Craig are too close in age, I'm not sure.
Given we're already so balls deep into reboot territory now voicing reservations scarcely matters any more what do we think about Gogol being rebooted? Someone like that Swedish guy from Sherlock could pull it off I reckon with a bit more menace than dear old Walter.
The Russians could be doing some dodgy deal with SPECTRE. Perhaps even have the Russian government putting pressure on the UK to release Blofeld rather than another tiresome contrived escape?
M and Gogol could have a clandestine meeting where he explains some compelling reason why they have to let Blofeld go. SPECTRE has possession of the Russian launch codes or some such.
Then when Bond gets wind of it Dan could channel his inner Broz and declare 'I'm going aftah him!'
Regarding actors, I've always wanted to see Steven Berkoff back in a Bond film, even if for a brief role. He is such a charismatic actor, and even acted with Craig in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
I wouldn't mind this. Incidentally the guy you're talking about is Mads Mikkelsen's brother, Lars.
Not in any of our lifetimes. 76 more to go at 3 years per film. Even our great grandchildren probably won't live to see B100.
If it takes 60 years to make 20 more films, I'll be 84 years old when Bond 44 will be released.
Couldn't agree more. I love M, Q, and Moneypenny as they are. I can't see how they could be better right now. I want some continuity like they had in the old days when Bernard and Lois and Desmond stuck around to welcome in new Bonds once Connery left. We need that kind of continuity again.
I agree, but since the actors who play the role respectively I would assume require a decent salary to play the roles. I highly doubt that EON would continue to pay Fiennes, Harris and Wishaw a hefty salary for a little more than just a cameo role.
Actually with Mallory's IRA background am I the only one who Hopes Craig comes back for 2 more films and the second one involves 007 taking on say a Rogue IRA faction. (heck they could even utlize the Man with the golden gun's plot somewhat with having the IRA brainwash 007 to kill their old advisarary.)
but yeah my issues with spectre (and Skyfall somewhat) didn't involve Fiennes as M who I thought wasinspirid casting.
