Comments on: James Bond 24 & 25 Will Build on ‘Skyfall’ http://screenrant.com/james-bond-24-25-skyfall-trilogy/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=john-logan-james-bond-24-25-will-build-skyfall The #1 Independent Movie & TV News Website Thu, 29 Jan 2015 12:42:59 +0000 hourly 1 By: richard jones http://screenrant.com/james-bond-24-25-skyfall-trilogy/comment-page-1/#comment-1090521 Fri, 18 Apr 2014 08:11:51 +0000 http://screenrant.com/?p=411046#comment-1090521 In this article it states that for the first time there was a sequel with Quantum Of Solace following Casino Royale. Surely this is not the first time as Diamonds Are Forever is a sequel to On Her Majestys Secret Service with bond on a revenge mission from the opening credits onwards against Blofeld for killing his wife. On a note for the future bond film Caro Emerald must surely be inline to do the theme song?

I really missed Q in first two movies but when he finally emerge, he looks more updated then Bond .. LOL
Well i guess they will give some more shots to Q in the next movie .. And I am damn sure that Ben Whishaw will play Q again!

To think fans of a movie could discuss things with civility is usually asking too much. To quote Connery’s Bond as he tries shot gunning clay pigeons with a villain: “It must be terribly difficult…….well no it isn’t, is it?” Classic.

Gonna have to click on TheAdditional1 now and see if there is a website or something for this anomalous beacon of level-headed fandom…

Glad I took the comment earnestly. I do agree that she was pretty prominent and it would have been better to focus on something else. I guess I’m just saying that since that’s what they wanted to do, it’s forgivable. But I am much looking forward to the next all-Bond’s-business take.

For now, Casino Royale truly is the best one so far, I agree. My favorite movie overall.

Toast of a shaken martini to you too, good man.

The idea that he intended to be caught to suit his purposes is fine, as is outsmarting Bond. We need worthy adversaries after all. The problem in my mind was the combination of a predictable story twist (the hero’s underestimation of the villain) combined with the most pronounced and musically iconic “victory” moment I recall from the film. If you know or suspect a ruse, then the heavy handed victory music falls really flat, and I feel overly manipulated.

As for your assessment of Judi Dench in the film, I almost totally agree. But despite sharing our basic sentiment, I thought she was overused. Furthermore for a film that overuses her it seems a glaring error to have her presence shoehorned into the opening moments of the film as a blow by blow advisor to Bond in the field. That intro would have been strengthened by her absence I think. In fact, given a thoughtful re-edit and minor deletions it might well be her best film in my opinion, but the prominence of her character became a distraction immediately and never let up much. I guess they just failed to find the balance I would have liked. Still, a cool and promising film, just not in the same league as the elegantly constructed Casino Royale.

Nice to trade comments with some civilized people! I raise my martini to the mature posters.

That moment is yours, and yours alone, and special in that uniqueness. Cherish it, and keep it to yourself from now on forevermore.

But really though. It’s a movie with HIGHLY improbable action sequences, logic and technology, and you’re absolutely perplexed and perflubbed by a change in design. I looked them up – in regular Google images they look absolutely identical – I’m pressed to see how they are not, in any kind of capacity. And rest assured, I very much doubt that many of us are car aficionados to whom a single car change (if not slightly changed model stamp) would completely throw us out of the loop with a resounding “HUH???”.

Besides, who is to say he doesn’t or maybe, you know, just have two cars? The car he had in the Caribbeans was a left-hand driver’s seat anyway, and Skyfall was right-seat, in accordance to region. That alone should be enough – why would he pay a boatload of money to have the wheel and instruments switched sides instead of just buying a new car overseas? The government got him a modern Aston Martin in the same CS movie, and he seems relatively well-off from his salary. It’s a simple purchase.

Finally. I assume like 3-5 years passed since Quantum of Solace. Even if it was the same exact car that for some reason he paid to have the driver’s seat moved from left to right, 3-5 years is an exorbitant amount of time to throw a few gadgets into a car. Honestly all we had proof of was an ejection seat and two machine guns, which amounts to putting a spring in the passenger seat and sticking a couple of stolen AK-47′s in the headlights.

You must have the most oblique and disabled attention span in the world.

No tell me, how do you even stay up in classes? How do you concentrate on your work? How many naps did you have to take while writing that comment, much less to read this ENTIRE article? It must have taken Herculean effort to stay focused and stay awake, and I applaud your noble efforts.

Bond wasn’t tricked and manipulated into getting caught. He did exactly what he wanted and needed to do – found out where Silva was hiding and get him captured. It’s a sign of Bond’s badassery and “blind loyalty to the service” both that he allowed himself to get caught in order to get the radio signal to the secret base (i.e. when he turned it on before walking to the front of the boat) and also that he’s confident enough to let himself get caught and not panic because he knows exactly what he’s doing, even if we don’t.

This goes on to serve my thought of how the radio vs “exploding pens” use seemed to send the message that “elegance in simplicity and effectiveness” – with the radio basically being like a mediating ground between the fantastical gadgets of past and the very cynical age we live in today. Skyfall was a movie about a lot of pointed statements balancing old and new, so I think that there’s a lot of room to make the gadgets more interesting – and that they will. I have to say that the gun thing was pointless though.

As far as Judi Dench’s involvement in the movie, I think one of Mallory’s line sums it up best – “retirement planning”. Basically Judi Dench had to go (she talked about how she could hardly even read her lines any more), and since she’s been such a classic and beloved actress in her role, they wanted to pay a solid and fitting homage to her “retirement”. That’s how I see it, and in that light – and only for this film and her exit – I found it quite appropriate. It should be back to business with Ralph Fiennes’ M though.

We are to believe that from Casino Royale the Craig era rebooted the character and even showed him being upgraded to “00″ status in the early scenes of the film. They then threw the usual sop to the fans by having him win the Aston Martin DB5 in a card game. An Aston, I may point out, that was just a regular classic car. Then 2 films later it somehow morphs into the 1964 Q special with the array of gadgets all intact. Gadgets that had a major influence in determining the eventual outcome of the story. I felt that was a poor plot twist and undermined the rest of the film(s) for me… I still don’t know why people had such a problem with QoS. I found it to be an effective thriller the mould of From Russia With Love. It tied up all the plot strings from CR and set us up for Quantum as the modern era’s SPECTRE. I for one would like to see a handsome actor play Blofeld totally straight, and have Bond cause him to be burned/injured, prompting the “classic” disfigured Blofeld look with the bald head and the Donald Pleasance scar and a burning feeling of revenge against 007 for the final Craig outing…

Why not create an organization which is a private contractor along the lines of Blackwater. This gives the organization legitimacy and provides cover for all manner of nefarious international dealings of a military nature. An updated Blofeld could be its head, operating in the background. And if a group can call itself Blackwater, then why not SPECTRE?

Craig outings. Actually, head and shoulders above any other action movie
