Bloody ell, A New Bond...

#1
and he's bleedin' English!!

Daniel Craig a real working man's Bond and blonde to boot... all lanky, craggy, 'lied-in' face..

Snotty waiter: " And your name ,Sir?"
Superpsy: " It's feckin' James Bond, innit! "
Barmaid: " Shaken , not stirred, Mr. Bond?"
Superspy: " Nah, luv, give us a tall bitter and a pack o' crisps "

I agree with FFox!
Craig isn't suave enough, he's got none of the style and panache associated with Brosnan, Connery or Moore.

He's not likely to make a lady drop her ball dress with the wink of an eye!

However, isn't Casino Royal meant to be a grittier type of Bond film??

Moore - 'suave'? WTF? That man exuded an air of letch. Connery IS Bond, as far as most people are concerned - and as such it is bally unfair to compare a guy who hasnt even played the role yet to him. Brosnan was really good, but he got let down by pi$$ poor writing.

I've heard that itt'l be grittier and more 'realistic' - can only be a good thing - Bond's been going downhill for a good three or four films now. Give craig a chance - he did well in Layer Cake. Brosnan only really grew that finesse after Goldeneye - was he that finnessful in Mrs Doubtfire, FFS?

Bond is a grate British institution but he really should be laid to rest.
All the Bond films have been based on Ian Flemings books’ except for the last film which was based on incomplete notes Fleming was putting together for a new book, which was why the last Bond film was poo IMHO.
They have run out of Bond books so now they have to resort to dreaming up their own stories, 007 can only go down hill from here on.

Hope they prove me wrong.

Oh if we were doing an Arrse Bond - could I be M? The one thing I believe the casting people on Bond got right was to put Judi Dench into that role. She is superb in it, in my opinion

Any offers as to who would be Q/R?
Moneypenny?
Bond Girls?
Crikey you have a full quota of baddies to fill? MDN, Flashy, Cuts would all make apt ones I am sure!

Ok ok I mad a bit of a duff there. But in my defence I am feeling quite rough this morning! :roll: :wink:

Hmmmm maybe we could actually divise an Arrse Bond Film, featuring BB and her 'special' connections........




Still bagsy M though
 
#10
But BB lacks the actualclout of a Bond Super Villain, perhaps she could be the the front for a real super villain, the mad ranting misdirecting attention away from the real evil genius intent on exacting revenge on the UK for some imagined slight in his past, I give you .......TCB!

Well, the gossipmongers are working overtime on this Bond caper... Seems Angelina Jolie -she of the pillow lips - is being touted as the next Bond Girl.. she's being courted to play Vesper Lynd who beds Bond and tries to cut short his licence to kill..

oooh, Angelina....

You're fcking nuts. It which book did Fleming write about a 'golden eye', etc... In most cases the nearest a Bond movie got to the book is the title. Sometimes they'd let it take two minutes of the movie time as a sub-plot (Octopussy for example) but in reality the books and the movies rarely run together. Or did I not read the two books you are quote as example for all the movies?

Laid to rest???? Perhaps if they made a Japenese Comic Cartoon version you'd be happy to let it run then?

And its great (good) not grate (cheese).

Here's a comment from Amazon for Moonraker (written 1955, not too many space shuttles flying around then).



This is the third review I have done for a 007 novel and as always I will tell the reader that the book is nothing like the film. Forget the pseudo-science fiction of the movies (done to capitalize on the Star Wars craze) this book is a completely different animal.
Plot aside (Moonraker is a super ICBM capable of destroying London; not a space station) the biggest differences are in Bond and mastermind-of-the-hour Hugo Drax. Bond is, again, Fleming's human being as opposed to Hollywood's super-agent (He actually gets TURNED DOWN by his leading lady and you get the feeling he's ACTUALLY A LITTLE HURT). Drax is much more intense in this book, coming off as what today we would call the typical megalomaniacal(...)mastermind (but since Fleming was instrumental in defining such a character, this must be accepted as part of his vision for the 007 mythos).
Lastly, sorry Jaws fans: he's not in here -- but check out the Peter Lorre-like Krebs. He's a good villain too.
All in all, Moonraker was my favorite of the 007 novels thus far. And though the car chase was a more intense clone of the one in "Casino Royale" it did nothing to detract from the enjoyment of this book.

I'd be a rubbish bond. I'd misjudge my hook turn when parachuting into enemy installations and smack into my invisible car. I'd walk into embassy soirees in my DJ, only to realise halfway through the evening that I'm covered in girl glitter and there's 2 boot marks and a large rip down the back of my jacket from the last bout of mess rugby. I'm handy enough with a pistol but I draw the line at crazy russian women with poisoned spikes in their shoes. Plus I can't stand weak women, so there I'd be, rescuing my incessently screaming leading lady from a random gantry hundreds of feet above a hollow volcano, with little yellow fellows shooting at me, her screaming at every ricochet, and I'd snap: "will you just shut up you stupid woman, I can't hear myself think!" Thus ensuring a) a slap and b) no bond-like nookie for the rest of the film. And there is NO way I'd be able to call anyone Pussy galore without winking or nudging the guy next to me with my elbow and giggling like a baby who just got into the dangerous household products cupboard for the first time. It just won't happen.

RTFQ, maybe you've just explained why Roger Moore was always quite so wooden, he was struggling to avoid dissolving into fits of giggles and knee slapping
