It looks good, but I'm not as excited about it as I would expect to be. I feel like alot of things that make Bond Bond are being left out. This movie seems to me like some random spy movie as opposed to a Bond movie. I hope I'm wrong and I like it more than I like it more than I do right now.

Its a new Bond. He isnt about the silly gadgets or big under ground lairs anymore. Im glad too. Loved the old films, but they were getting tiresome.

I actually think they've done a good job of keeping the flavor of the old Bond flicks with stuff like the over the top construction site chase in Casino Royale and what appears to be SPECTRE, or at least a similar organization, in this new one. I was afraid they would get stone serious with the Craig movies, but I'm glad to see they're at least keeping some of the preposterous elements that make Bond Bond.

I'm actually getting a 60's vibe from this trailer. The costumes, set design, and overall feel seems much like something out of Thunderball to me. I can't wait to see it.

Wow.:horror

I wasn't that blown-away by the early trailers---but that one knocked my socks off.

So is SPECTRE popping up in this new series?

Agent0028
09-10-2008, 07:45 AM
I also miss the gadgets, not the more outlandish ones like the Vanish, but the subtler ones like the exploding pen and the various watches. I don't think those are any worse than being poisoned and defibrillating yourself... Having SPECTRE will be nice to have back if that is indeed where they are going with it.

I think my big disappointment in the series is that when I heard they were doing Casino Royale I really wanted to see Bond's first mission, but set in the 50's and being against SMERSH.

I think it's unreasonable to expect them to suddenly time-travel back half a century and tell a story just because that's the time period the book was set in. There wasn't a chance they were going to do that. While of course things had to be changed to update the story and make it more modern, Casino Royale was very faithful to the original novel. It's still Bond's first major mission. He's still going up against Le Chiffre. The story at its core remained the same, only as with any adaptation, there's additions and subtractions, but it's still very true to Fleming.

They're bringing back a SPECTRE-like organization and perhaps some more realistic gadgets like the ones from FRWL or OHMSS will be seen as well. Although this one isn't based directly on a story from Fleming, I have little doubt that the character and story will remain very close to the source.

Not sure about the aerial scenes. Bond is a crack shot and a rally-class driver, sure I buy that. Bond is a pilot that can dogfight in airspace as restricted as that? Stretches credulity a bit.

That's just a minor quibble, I'm crazy about Bond and I will be seeing it as soon as it comes out.

Agent0028
09-11-2008, 08:04 AM
I think staying true to the main points of Casino Royale is why I liked it as much as I did. I really hope I like this one too.

Any idea what this organisation that's everywhere but they know nothing about is? Spectre possibly?

I've never been a huge Bond fan but I really enjoyed Casino Royale and I'm looking forward to seeing Quantum. Will go to the cinema, but probably not until a few weeks after it's released to give the crowds a chance to die down. I'm not bothered enough to have to push through loads of people to see it first.

Looks good though

Not sure if they'll call it SPECTRE or SMERSH, but it looks to be the same kind of deal. Hopefully we'll find out in the new film. I love how they've set it up. This is the first time in the series that there's really been a consistency between films in that this is somewhat a continuation of the previous film. I like that. Shakes things up a bit.

JABBATHERIDGE
09-11-2008, 09:25 AM
I think that's what's been missing from Bond.

We haven't had any real sort of arching villain since the Blofeld days. When I first watched Casino Royale I figured right at the end Bond would interrogate Mr White and find the name of the group he was working for was Spectre, which was where the film would end, but things didn't quite pan out that way.

I read an interview in Empire saying that whatever this organisation is, it would be around for longer than Quantum and just spit out a "front" villain every new film as Bond gets closer and closer to unmasking it.

In a lousy year where nothing has gone right I just have to exist till November to see the one great thing to happen this year.
:007 Bond>God
And I highly doubt that the organization will be SMERSH or the Special Executive for Counterintelligence. Terrorism, Revenge, & Extortion. The former was flattened under the collapse of the Iron Curtain and the second is owned by a lunatic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_McClory). So unless the true Bond owners have wrested it from his feeble grasp I'd bet this is a new organization. If it is SPECTRE though I would be very happy.

Agent0028
09-11-2008, 10:31 AM
Ah, that's right, I had forgotten they can't use SPECTRE. They could still use SMERSH, they would have to change its origins since it was originally an arm of Russian espionage. If the head guy is Russian that could explain the use of the name. Or they could always use Benson's Union. :monkey4

Well, Quantum of Solace looks to begin with that very sequence as it picks up only moments after the ending of Casino Royale.

I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I am a long time Bond fan, and the trailer looks technically ALOT better than Casino Royale (which I saw 7 times in theaters,) and maybe it's the waiting time, or maybe it's Craig (who I am not a fan of,) but I just cannot get that excited about it.

I'll probably more pumped closer to the film's release.

That shot is killer. People on IMDB are crying foul because its either CGed or just used different takes, and bluescreen. It looks badass. Craig freakin owns. My favorite Bond. He doesnt take any ^^^^ from anyone. Connery and Dalton are close behind. Brosnen is in his own awesome league. Moore was good at times, but too silly other times. Lazenby was pretty great, especially at the end with his wife. Shame we didnt see him go further.

Dr.Mirakle32

Here is my ranking:
1. Roger Moore

4. Peter Sellers


5. Daniel Craig
6. George Lazenby

CelticPredator

Peter Sellers doesnt count. A real Bond movie HAS to be made by the Broccoli's. Everything else is totally moot.

I disagree that Craig is that close to the literary Bond. he may be closer than the others, but only by a little.

09-13-2008, 12:59 PM
Its either him, Sean, or Dalton. The rest apperently arent like the books.

Agent0028

Brosnan and Moore are definitely least like the literary Bond. I think I may personally say that Dalton is closer to the literary Bond than Craig.

CelticPredator
09-13-2008, 01:05 PM
Having not read past Casino, I cant disagree or agree. I think I only really truly like 3 Moore movies....the rest are just too campy or cruddy for me to like. However, one of those 3 include Man with the Golden Gun....which is hilarious....but I guess thats why I like it. Live and Let Die, and For Your Eyes Only are his best.

Pierce was better then the movies he was in....(cept GoldenEye, that was great).

Sean had Thunderball, Goldfinger (my second favorite Bond flick) You Only Live Twice, From Russia with Love, and Dr. NO.....and all those were good. Both of Dalton's flicks are great, I liked License better then Daylights. I did enjoy OHMSS as well.

Agent0028
09-13-2008, 01:07 PM
OHMSS is the movie most similar to the book. Live and Let Die and The Spy Who Loved Me are my personal favorite Moore movies.

Oh, and for the record I've read all Fleming's Bond books, but its been awhile so I can't really speak with too much authority, just going off memory.

Who says? Casino Royale '67 was a licensed adaptation of the novel. AS bad as it was, and even though the Broccolis had nothing to do with it, it is still a James Bond film that uses Ian Fleming situations and characters.

Plus, I think Sellers was a better Bond than Craig anyday. I really just don't buy DC as Bond. He's a bad-ass action star no doubt, I just don't get the Bond vibe from him (and yes, I've read a few of the books.)

Bond is a hardass. Not "Let me have sex with you, and use this dart that comes out of my ass to shoot you into space"....it may have BEEN Bond for a while...but im soooo glad were out of the "surfing 1000ft wave" days. Blah.

Also, if it aint by the Broc's it aint Bond. Is Never say Never a real Bond flick? No....not at all. Its one of the worst movies ever made....:banghead

Hmm, I think Casino Royale may be my favorite, From Russia with Love, OHMSS, Moonraker (nothing like the movie), and Diamonds are Forever (also nothing like the movie) stick out in my mind. The Spy Who Loved Me is a radically different Bond book than any others and I like it alot for that reason.

Dr.Mirakle32
09-13-2008, 01:19 PM
My point is, when I look as Brosnan, I see James Bond. When I look at Moore, I see James Bond. When I see Connery, of course I see James Bond. When I look at Craig, I see an angry, buffed up British guy.

CelticPredator
09-13-2008, 01:22 PM

You mean the relentless body-builder who runs after tankers like a robot, jumps from buildings like Spider-Man, busts through walls like the Hulk, easily kicks the ass of two armed Ugandan terrorists in a hotel stairwell, and cracks jokes when his balls are getting battered, all with the same angry, pouty monkey expression? What a realitic human being. Sure, he's a cool character, I just don't find him that representational of the literary Bond, or even the film Bond for that matter.

So Bond shouldn't be in shape and able to perform his job to the highest expectations? It's not like Craig looks like Arnold from back in the day, he simply looks in shape and cut. And for the first time, it looks plausible for the man playing Bond to be performing the stunts that Bond performs in the film. Much of your problem with Craig appears to be superficial and if you look past the archetype that has been set forth by the previous Bond's, you'll find that Craig is really the only true "actor" of the group (aside from Dalton) who can pull off practically anything with conviction and intelligence and he looks as if he could perform what is expected of Bond in the film. The most important thing is that Bond is a real-live thriving three-dimensional character now...who also gets the job done as a man of action. And he looks damn good in a tuxedo as well.

Roger Moore was a great Bond. He was his own Bond and he did it his way and I deeply respect him for not trying to be Connery. His performances are hugely entertaining and he seems to be a heck of an individual as well. Although a couple of his movies are a little too campy for their own good, I still find myself watching his movies out of all the Bond's the most often because they're simply more fun and most of that has to do with Moore himself.

The Spy Who Loved Me is awesome. That whole era's cultural influence kind of hurt Moore's movies, I agree, but they were no where near as embarrassing as Lazenby's or Brosnan's (excluding Goldeneye). :monkey3

Agent0028

I always felt its a bit unfair to criticize the guy playing Bond based on the movie. Brosnan didn't ask to star in a bad rehash of Diamonds Are Forever.

CelticPredator
09-14-2008, 05:07 PM
True. But I still dont like Moore as much as the others. He was fantastic in some flicks, but then really stupid in others.
A badass in Live and let die, Golden Gun, and For your eyes only....

But really campy in Moonraker, A view to a kill (worst Bond movie....yeeessssshhhhh) and
Octopussie.

Brosnan actually had the Bond character down pretty evenly throughout, but his films werent very good....

And I dont like Spy Who Loved me....I have no idea why...

Agent0028
09-14-2008, 05:24 PM
I put Diamonds are Forever, Moonraker, and A View to a Kill in a tie as the three worst Bond films. Each time I watch one I swear its the worst, until I watch another one and it becomes the worst. :lol

Maybe I'll do a marthon of those three before I go see Quantum of Solace, then no matter how much I don't care for the current direction of the movies, I'll like it more than some past ones.

CelticPredator

CelticPredator
09-14-2008, 06:18 PM
It was the first film I saw, but I was like 10 or so when I saw it. I've come to realize what a piece of crap it really is. Almost killed Bond forever. Just like Batman and Robin pretty much killed Batman....forever....heh.

Dr.Mirakle32
09-14-2008, 06:34 PM
Boo. It's hip to hate on DAD, but it really isn't as bad as B&R. Before Casino Royale, DAD was the highest grossing in the franchise. Sure, it obviously has its flaws, but its still a fun, outrageous, over the top, "Bond movie" style Bond film. Hell, I even prefer it to YOLT and TB. Not every 007 film HAS to be dark and gritty. If that were the case, the franchise would have been burried after four or five films.

CelticPredator
09-14-2008, 07:53 PM
Not every movie needs to have big space lasers and giant tidal waves with a piss poor CGI Bond flopping around it. Casino Royale makes Bond REAL. You can argue that "the africa scene couldnt be done!" but...in fact, it was done for real. There were no wires in that scene. They did that stuff. All of it.

And yes, there is a point where you've been subjected to so much pain, you dont even notice it, or it becomes pleasurable in some way.

Agent0028
09-14-2008, 07:54 PM
I haven't seen DAD enough for me to really say how good or bad it is. I liked it when I first saw it, second viewing not as much, third brought it up a little again. Some parts were really good (the sword fight) and some parts were really bad (wind surfing a huge wave on a piece of the car). I think my biggest problem with it is that it is too much like a DAF rehash.


And yeah, Diamonds is awful. The two gay killer thing was just...weird....

That's right outta the novel. Although I think its the only thing from the movie that is.

Did you not see the making of? Sure the Africa scene was real. It was just filled with protected expert stunt doubles, angled close-ups of the actors a couple of feet of the ground, clever editing, and I could have sworn I saw a cable keeping Daniel Craig up as he was running up the crane in the documentary. In other words... movie magic. Sure it's ALOT more realistic than CGI windsurfing, and most of it was practical stuntwork, but it's not something that can happen that safely in reality. You make it sound like it was done by the two actors in one continuous shot.

CelticPredator
09-14-2008, 09:26 PM
But it being done by stunt men isnt doing it for real?

Also, theres a few good things in Day, like you said, the Sword fight is great, the opening is great, the ice chase is neat...everything else? Not so much.

And my issue with the two gay killers was the fact that it was too over the top, and too silly. Not the gay part, but how they were presented. I dont know.

I would have to say that Die Another Day is the worst Bond film, followed by Diamonds are Forever. I wonder why that is? :) I enjoy parts of both films and they are fun if you're in the right mood, but they're bottom of the barrel. View to a Kill and Moonraker I find enjoyable, especially the latter. As silly as it is, it's still quite epic, funny, and beautiful to look at. Ken Adam's sets are marvelous in that one.

That is a pretty cool commercial, doesn't make me want to drink it though. If I'm going to drink a soda I'm going to drink a real soda. :lol Coke Zero just isn't the kind of product I would associate with James Bond. Of course its not really a drink I associate with NASCAR either, but they changed the Pepsi 400 to the Coke Zero 400 this past year. :lol

Coke Zero was first marketed as bloke Coke though and James Bond is seen as quite a blokey thing, so I guess that's what they were going for. I recently went on a crash diet and had to replace regular Coke with Coke Zero and I've gotta admit I have gotten used to it and don't mind it so much now. Still hate Diet Coke though.

I think my big disappointment in the series is that when I heard they were doing Casino Royale I really wanted to see Bond's first mission, but set in the 50's and being against SMERSH.


That wouldn't work at all. The early Bond films are set in the 60's because they were MADE in the 60's. They're contemporary films set in whatever year/decade they happen to be made. Bond is timeless, like Batman. Doing a period Bond film would be completely against the grain.

I can't pick a side in the great Bond debate. I love all of them, for very different reasons.

I'm trying not to watch or listen to too much QoS stuff, so I can have a clean slate when I see it in theaters. I went overboard on CR stuff before the movie was released, including reading the message boards, reading the book, and downloading the soundtrack before it was availabe, so I unfortunately knew too much by the time I saw the film. I just had too many pre-conceived notions.

I have the soundtrack CD and Arnold's score is excellent. Really great stuff, nearly on par with Casino Royale.

And the title song...it's growing on me. I really like the sound and beat of it and the lyrics are very good, but the vocals are the real problem with the song. It seems very modern, which is fine. Bond's have to adapt to changing times and tastes.

Have seen the movie. It's NOT awful! But doesn't work as a separate film (because it isn't, it's the continuation of CR's story.) Those who have said it feels like the second film in a trilogy is not far off. Some great scenes but it took a while to get into it as you're literary just thrown into the action with no idea what's going on other than it's a carchase. Love the relationship between Bond and M though. I guess the humor will come in the next one as he can move on after the betrayal and death of Vesper and him getting revenge. Not saying more here. I'll open a spoiler thread if there isn't one already.:007

What a silly inept review.

Why are people complaining that it's a sequel? This has been well known ever since the film was announced. How can that be associated negatively with the film? Should Empire be knocked down a peg or two because it's a sequel and you have to have seen A New Hope beforehand to know what's going down? Sheesh.

I haven't seen the film, but it looks like it's taking chances with the formula and creating a tight, fast, cut-throat, action film with a more emotionally charged Bond at the forefront. I see nothing wrong with changing it up. Frankly, Bond needs to be rattled stylistically every decade or so. He's a constantly evolving character, changing with the times and tastes. Always has been, always will be.

You wouldn't but I would. Craig encapulates what I wanted Bond to be. Since Connery, Bond did not have the ruggedness that was on screen. The other Bonds were fine but weren't the same and in my eyes not Bond. Craig was perfect and so as far as I'm concerned, there hasn't been a Bond before Casino Royale. Can't wait to continue the tale.

Krypto
11-06-2008, 06:01 AM
Dalton was as dangerous, if perhaps not as rugged, as Connery. He was a purposefully violent Bond with genuine depth and motivations. I like Connery a lot, but he got by mostly on his natural charisma and screen presence than he did with his acting skills. There's little depth to Connery's Bond, but he's terrifically entertaining to watch. Connery and Moore are opposite sides of the same coin. They both played it big - Connery was a more violent character and Moore has a more light-hearted character. Dalton and Craig are the most Fleming of the Bond's - dangerous, violent, serious, and vulnerable at the same time. Brosnan is somewhere in between.

Gun Barrel is...intresting. Its kinda lame how they did it...you'll see when it comes out, and I dont like the music they put to it, but Craig does a good pose, and the barrel itself looks good.

The titles...it goes from cool, to boring, to cool, and then to OK....and the awful song doesnt help. Its edited to hell, and it doesnt make it better. So, no, Woff...I wont like the song in the movie, because its the same horrid song, David didnt redo it like he did with You Know My Name.

I really ^^^^ing hate the editing in the action scenes. Like Batman Begins and TDK, it's the close-up, fast-cut, shaky-cam, "who-was-that?" bull^^^^ where you can't tell what exactly is going on.

It ruined pretty much every action scene.

Especially the Opera scene when they chase Bond through the restaurant. The part where he fights the one guy before he meets Cami was good, though.

It sucks becuase they do this great choreography, but you only see some hints at it.

Also, the editing in general was bad where it skips a lot. It didn't feel fluid.

I think Casino Royale was great in these areas. I had no problem with the action and you could tell exactly what was going on.

I really hope they don't do this crap in the next one.

I need to see it again, but on the whole the movie felt like a step back.

Caught the midnight show last night and I thought it was terrific. I would say I liked it as much as Casino Royale. It's such a fluid follow-through that it's hard to dislike any aspect. It was very modern, yet incredibly classic and often retro. I felt the film balanced story, character, action, and intrigue incredibly well. The action was a little too close for my taste, I preferred the more traditional approach of Campbell's work on Casino Royale, but nevertheless, I never found it hard to follow the action and various chases. I just dug the whole thing from beginning to end. And oh, that ending. That's a beautiful thing and very indicative of the film - epic action sequences and complex storylines and intrigue and yet the film never loses focus of the characters and their motivations.

I've seen some reviews blasting the film, even a 1/10 from some Bond fansite. That's absurd. This movie has everything that a good Bond movie should, and then some. People have let their expectations get out of hand, expecting something different, while being handed something unique and different and very Fleming in relation to the Bond character himself. It's a great Bond film.

If the action was filmed like Casino Royale, I would have liked this movie a lot better. There's SO much action that, being edited like this, it hurts the movie a lot. Great stuff was filmed, but was ruined by the editing.

There a few action scenes that it looked like they threw in some random shots. I stopped paying attention during a lot of the action (got pretty tired of feeling I was being rolled around inbetween two people) until the scenes slowed down. I felt like I had to have a severe case of ADD to watch it. Can't believe people actually like that crap.

I wish Martin Campbell had directed it. He did CR and my other favorite, Goldeneye. Plus this is a true sequel so it would have only fit better.

I'm glad Marc Forster said he isn't coming back for the next one. I just hope who ever does it, doesn't use this style of editing.

This review sums it up:

The style provides an adrenaline boost but little real involvement; the action sequences become such a blur of white men in black suits fighting, it's hard sometimes to tell what's going onhttp://www.nj.com/entertainment/tv/index.ssf/2008/11/action_never_lets_up_in_quantu.html
