  • And you know what? Bond will probably die again in the far future. Probably won’t be the next actor. And given we’ve only had one out of 25 films out of 60 years actually do that, Bond dying might not even happen again in some of our lifetimes. T…
  • The “too much ego” thing is a hilarious bit to me, that just strikes me as some of you fans being overdramatic. Bond is just a fictional character that doesn’t actually mean anything. The world doesn’t blow up just because Bond did in NTTD. Craig AN…
  • IIRC Mankiewicz was offered NSNA and he turned it down due to his past association with Cubby, even though he hadn’t worked as extensively since TMWTGG. I definitely would disagree with Maibaum on SF if expressed that opinion, because the movie c…
  • It’s funny how open Maibaum was about not being satisfied with Moore in the part, even sounding jealous at one point over NSNA having Connery, but Cubby kept him employed up to LTK.

  • Nobody outside of the Bond community thinks of the films in terms of overall scope but rather fragmented via actor. Causal audiences are not looking at the Barbara/Michael run from 1995 to present and thinking “good god, they didn’t make as many Bon…

  • Ghostbusters is filled with low bars after the original film, what is your point then?

  • I’ll take SPECTRE over the last three GHOSTBUSTERS any day.
  • Right, there are problems with the show, but it has nothing to do with “wokeness”, that’s all just a distraction because it’s what generates clicks. Sadly, a YouTuber sticking to the fundamentals of storytelling criticism isn’t going to get as many …

  • As in how current cinema will be reflected, like how CR must have taken inspiration from Bourne and Batman Begins.
  • We won’t really know anything until they decide to say something about it on their own volition. So, I’ll just wait it out. To be honest, I’ll probably only feel antsy if we reach 2026 and still get no word on what’s happening.

  • “The Rock is actually a Bond film” feels like the new “Die Hard is actually a Christmas film”, which is getting so tiresome.
  • No, no, no, I’m not talking about his viewpoint across all his videos. I don’t really follow him at all, and as far as I can recall I’ve only seen maybe one other video of his. The viewpoint I’m talking about is only specific to the video I share…
  • I definitely can’t imagine Dalton wearing all that Brioni clothing, which I felt made Brosnan look more stuffy than sophisticated.
