The Last Bond Film???

“That sounds like a binary choice, Bloefeld, I refuse to define myself in those terms. Please call me @!”?>< instead.”

Blofeld: “we have been working on the whole LBGTQI* agenda for many years, now Bond, Operative Klebb was many years ahead of her time...”

I doubt Klebb would just have a flick dagger in the shoe, maybe something a bit duller, a bit rounder like some sort of cosh which could flick out from her core area so that she could get some real purchase on the hit, maybe tie it on with a leather strap and have it made of a dark material so you can’t see it in the dark.

I can’t bring myself to do it, they’ve got a new 00 agent in that black woman, yeah proper realistic, and it just smacks of virtue signalling womxn are just as strong as men if not stronger rubbish. I can’t do it.

It’s not me being misogynist, that I am, I’d rather watch Homeland which I think is miles better and more realistic than James Bond.

What James Bond needs is the Batman treatment from Christopher Nolan, it needs Nolan to reinvent Bond and do a trilogy without all the PC rubbish and interference from the Cauliflower family who own the rights and like meddling.

Ignoring the first two paragraphs that @Alec_Lomas has nicely quashed, Bond was reinvented with the Craig involvement & the excellent Casino Royale. That film is the only one of the entire franchise that is close to Flemings creation as he was in the books. Craig at the time said he wasn't interested unless there was a change from the stupid gadgets, humour taking away from the character who had a very dark streak to him in the books.
The problem is, all the wanky Bond 'fans' think the likes of Connery & that hopeless dick Roger Moore make great Bonds. Cos of that fanboi stuff the proposed plans for the Quantum of Solace (pretty crap anyway), Skyfall etc went diffy having to go back to type, its part of the reason Craig has been trying to dump the role for the last 2 movies at least.

While Connery was the best of them of that era, every other actor, the screenwriters & the Brocolli lot have fecked the films up. I'm prob in a minority but I hate the daft gadgets, humour of Moore, the stupid stunts. They became kids comic books crap.

I’m with you on the gadgets and Moore’s humour and the stunts. I honestly prefer Homeland to Bond and that’s a female lead spy. Also, Craig is the worst Bond there’s ever been, because he mumbles much the same as Clive Owen does Who was rumoured to be playing him beforehand Craig.

In my opinion, they should do the Bond films in trilogy’s and do a trilogy set in the 60s in Berlin against the Ruskies ala Man Fromm UNCLE or 80s atomic blonde.

Totally agree on Casino Royale but beg to differ on QoS. If you watch them back to back (QoS is the direct sequel to CS) it actually works very well and keeps Bond in the same character. Besides the shootout at the Bregenz opera is one of my favourite scenes from an artistic standpoint.

Just don't get me started on the car chase in Spectre. A lesson in how to make the dullest possible chase considering it's got a DB10 in it.

The bloody invisible car did it for me...
 
Black is almost non-existent, although I expect Belfast has a similar ratio as a similar-sized English town (not that I'd know; don't visit).

I do and your estimate is fairly good, I think. Probably some debate to be had as to which town though.
 
Either all of the advertisements are aimed at a specific sector in the English city centres, or the agencies are under the impression that the percentages you quote are significantly higher, and have more ready shekels available than the rest of us. The sort of urgent indoctrination going on to condition the population in this way is surely politically-driven; social engineering at its grubbiest.

I think it is primarily risk aversion rather than a deliberate intention on the part of the makers. Severe career damage awaits those who get on the wrong end of the wrong sort of tweetstorm.
