Let Nolan have it when they go to a new Bond actor.

Sometimes I think it'd be cool to take the series back to the 1960's.  But I understand there are cons to that.

Because doing that with Star Trek was so good?

I want Dennis Villaneve (sp).

Spectre sucked through the middle, and at the end. But the stumbled onto something good for a bit:

An ensemble doing spy stuff. The secondary characters are played by good actors. Need to revisit that concept.

Denis Villeneuve - he's my favorite director, but his Bond would be Mendes on steroids. Not sure it would work so well.

Agree that the concept of Spectre was pretty good but the plot was shit.

Regardless, it’s great they’re using “distinct” directors. Mendes and now Boyle each have a way that you immediately recognize. It keeps the brand from getting stale.

Let Boyle do this one, then let Nolan reboot with a new Bond.

I think Danny Boyle is a smart choice. I've struggled with Christopher Nolan's films. I think he's a brilliant director but he might be too brainy for Bond. I wonder if Boyle will bring in A. R. Rahman to write the music.

Spectre was a disappointment and so it needs something to get it back on track that Skyfall seemed to pull together. The whole Blofeld back story in Spectre was poorly conceived, the idea that he was responsible for the villians and events in the last 3 movies just didn't connect for me. Blofeld never came across evil enough, or devious enough, to really pull off what he said he did. Javier Bardem would have made a better Blofeld. Now that guy was evil in Skyfall.

OF course, we may be at a time where we can use Industrial Light and Magic to do what they did with Rogue One. Bring back Sean Connery in his 30's to play Bond again.

I’m ready for Idris Elba as Bond with some badass writers and directors. But I’m down with one last Craig ride.

I'm watching Spectre now on FX and don't get the hate.  No, it's not Casino Royale, but likely no Bond will ever be that good again.  It's basically just the old-school outrageous Bond formula filmed in modern times.  It's still, like all the Daniel Craig films, better than every Bond that came before.  Sean Connery wishes he made Spectre.  If you think otherwise, maybe it's been too long since you've seen "You Only Live Twice."

It's the plot. Blofeld was the mastermind behind the last three movies? Stupid.

And for sure, Spectre is on another level in terms of tone, acting, and visuals compared to Diamonds Are Forever or something like that. But compared to the best of the series like Skyfall or From Russia With Love, Spectre falls way short of the mark.

The first 4 Connery movies are as good as anything Craig has done.

I disagree with the "first four."   But, then again, I put Casino Royale (1) and Skyfall (3) in my top four of all of the Bond movies. 

From Russia with Love (2) and Dr. No (4) fill in the gaps of the upper echelon of the series for me (and those rankings for 2 and 4 might be a bit interchangeable since Dr. No used to be my #1.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a likely #5

Everyone else's darling, Goldfinger, gets knocked down to the #6 spot for me because I can't get past Kentucky as a locale after Austria (I don't care if that's where Ft. Knox is located).

You Only Live Twice is kind of a guilty pleasure for me.  I recognize that it's ridiculous, but I still love it.  It's probably not the #7 spot, but it's close.  Plus, it's the basis for Dr. Evil, Fu-Q and Fu-Qme.  So there's that.

Glad to run into another OHMSS fan in the wild. It figures that you would have the same avatar as me. Lazenby and the movie are both underrated.

I was slow to come around on this one, but overall, it's solid.

Always loved OHMSS and it's in my top five. Also one of the reasons I paid ridiculous money to see Piz Gloria a couple of years ago.

Also in my top five.  Very underrated film.  Soundtrack is up there with Goldfinger and Thunderball.  I could go on and on.

Positive Surly internets to you fine gentlemen. OHMSS was always my favorite Bond flick, 1 and 1a along with From Russia With Love. Story-driven films, more than just gadgets and special effects.

I have ohmss in my top 4.  Casino Royale, FRWL, Dr No, OHMSS, skyfall, thunderball and FYEO. I’m probably the only one who has a roger Moore bond in my top 10, but dam I loved for your eyes only.

That's interesting that they directly mentioned that Craig was in the mix of those deciding he's gone.

Apparently it is over casting decisions.

Yeah.  It’s a real shame when a director like Nolan makes a movie that actually requires the audience to think...

I’m not sure I can contend with such intelligent repartee.  Still trying to understand Memento?

You’re obviously a fan of Moonraker

As for Nolan, the Batman trilogy wasn’t like the prior versions (or later versions) either.  They did require a modicum of thought.  And if you think the other versions were better, that tells me all I need to know

You seem nice.

 

Chris Nolan is wholly unsuited for Bond in myriad ways. And the first Batman with Micheal Keaton hasn't been matched.
