  • Aaron Taylor Johnson's a pretty good actor. I honestly think he should get offered more roles than he does at the moment. But no, he's not Bond.

  • I'm actually a fan of Elba as M. The appeal to me is that you have someone who is such a big screen presence (an 'alpha male' as has been said here) who could literally have been Bond in some alternate universe. It makes sense that a younger Bond wo…
  • Maybe Aidan Turner would make a good villain if that's what they're thinking about at the moment. I'm not even joking.

  • I think there's an unfortunate tendency to assume that character arcs, especially with a character like Bond, always have something to do with families, our hero's past, some sort of deep seated emotional trauma etc. There's literally hundreds of th…
  • This thread's taken an odd turn... I love SF for what it's worth. It can be weirdly divisive amongst Bond fans though. I would say though, that much like GF or FRWL, I suspect SF is one of those Bond films that a lot of new Bond directors and wri…
