:o WHAT?!


Tom Hardy is pretty *in* right now. He seems the obvious choice. Just as long as they don't make Bond a female to please the feminazis it's all good.
Jane Bond!!

But yeah, Tom Hardy would be so brilliant.

The OHMSS theme is in there. And Waltz is wearing a Nehru jacket. I am amped for this.

I can see this being better than Quantum Of Solace and probably surpassing Skyfall but not Casino Royale. That one was just great.

However - if Craig's next ( and rumoured final ) movie is also great - he won't have had a bad run.

He's already got a better Bond resume under his belt than Pierce Brosnan. They really did give him terrible movies apart from Goldeneye.

Unsurprisingly, it seems like Spectre is going to be a spiritual reimagining of OHMSS. I can dig it. :hefdaddy

I'm a massive Bond fan but i've only seen OHMSS the once. Keep meaning to rewatch on it's own terms.

Aside from Lazenby himself, OHMSS makes a strong case for being the best Bond film ever. Incredible directing and screenwriting from a film perspective and it's an eerily accurate adaptation of what's generally agreed to be Fleming's greatest Bond novel (though I do slightly prefer the novel You Only Live Twice as a singular book).

I've seen OHMSS several times now and the story is just executed fantastic. The ending always hits hard. Lazenby got a lot of unjust flak for it, but I think he does a better job than Moore.

I agree about Lazenby. He's certainly not bad; he's just rough around the edges, since that was his first time ever acting. That said, he nailed the final scene of the film. The only other two Bond actors who I think could have matched him in that scene are Dalton and Craig.

I think I said this awhile back, but I feel like OHMSS is the closest we ever got to a Hitchcock-directed Bond film. It's very lavishly shot and cinematically tense in the same way that Hitchcock approached his classic films.

Hm. Never heard of him, so I don't know what his style is, but I'm not excited based on that.

I guess I'll just have to wait and hear it!

He has a very soft voice, so it'll probably be another ballad.

He's not my cup of tea, but maybe he'll surprise us

Apparently it's a "classic love song", which he wrote in 20 minutes. It's hard to get excited based on that.

But yeah, maybe he'll surprise us.

Can't be as bad as Die Another Day or the Jack White one...





...Was in TESCO last night and saw a tabloid headline " DAVID BECKHAM IS NEW BOND ". Obviously this would be all over the news if true and not in some shitty tabloid.

So I read the text underneath the headline and it said

" David Beckham may be the next Bond after fans suggested he should be. "

If Beckham is the next Bond then hopefully they can fit him with an Adam's Apple or something.

I have never heard of Sam Smith. In a related story, I don't give a rip about the theme song or who sings it. I have never enjoyed seeing a Bond movie upon my initial viewing as I did with Skyfall (ok, maybe Goldeneye) and I couldn't tell you who sang the song, or how it went.

Adele's Skyfall combined with the imagery of that intro was epic. Still gives me chills.

The Skyfall intro is very nice but the song always feels so incredibly boring to me, I'd rather enjoy the visuals with muted sound.

Skyfall is the best bond theme in a long while. I quite liked Casino Royale's one by Chris Cornell too but Skyfall is better imo.

I actually quite liked View To A Kill as well * runs* .

Skyfall is a decent theme, but overrated given that it's pretty standard stuff. The vocals bug me a bit too. The chick's voice is not suited to harmonies.
You Know My Name is by far the best of the modern era imo, with the only other competition being Goldeneye.

I thought that Skyfall was unquestionably the best Bond theme in at least 20 years, maybe longer.

I hope Sam Smith does a good job.  But I'm already over his falsetto ass.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Disagree about Skyfall, I love that tune, especially with the accompanying visuals.

But I agree that You Know My Name is the best.....I tend to gravitate towards the hard rocking tunes.

I agree.  Stylistically it's something of a throwback to the old Shirley Bassey Bond themes.

"You Know My Name" and "Skyfall" were both outstanding, although I prefer the latter because I think female vocals go with/are more traditional for Bond movies than either rock songs or songs from male vocalists.  That doesn't mean that there aren't good examples of either, such as
"Thunderball," "Live and Let Die," or "The Living Daylights."  There are also female-sang title songs that are the drizzling shits, like "The Man with the Golden Gun," "All Time High" (Octopussy), "Die Another Day," etc.

Regarding the books I just finished Thunderball and started on On Her Majesty's Secret Service. I need to finish the SPECTRE trilogy before the movie hits.
