Interesting that you enjoyed Spectre as much as you did. I do too, but itís generally received negatively in the fan base due to the weaker script. Are you gonna watch the rest of the series? Itís a hell of a trip!

It took me forever to watch even the most current ones, someday down the line I consider watching them but not anytime soon.

And how can a script with "fist fight on board of a spinning helicopter hovering above a crowded square" be weak?  :lol

(More seriously, the story is what it is, I didn't find it particularly bad or weak, it was in line with the other movies)

It was what they did with Blofeld and Spectre in general that was weak. They kind of did it half assed. Wasnít developed well enough.

Danny boyle has quit from directing the new bond film

Yeah that shits crazy. If they keep Hodgeís script, hopefully they can find a replacement quick enough that they donít have to miss a beat and still make the deadline.

Well, hopefully they can find someone soon who can make the film the best it can be... Feels like forever between Bond films, so a delay isn't going to help.

Skyfall is not my favorite bond film, but I think it might have my favorite moment in the entire series.

When silva has him in the chair and he's trying to rattle him by flirting with him and without missing a beat, craig is like "who said its my first time". What a come back, :clap:  bravo sir

It looks like Cary Fukunaga is directing the next bond film.

Really weird choice. He made Beast of No Nation, and directed/ produced some episodes of True Detective.

I'm pretty interested to see the direction he's taking Bond!

I love that line. Made me smile in the theater. So good.

Great to hear they have someone for the film. Never heard of him, will have to look up his work and put my faith in him.

Unpopular opinion:

I donít understand the love Skyfall gets. It doesnít feel like a Bond movie at all. Itís too personal, I never really wanted to visit Bondís childhood home, or watch some weird M revenge movie.

There are just lots of cringe-moments too. Bond sneaking into the shower of someone he learned in the previous scene had been sex trafficked. Yes, Bond has always been a dog but coome on. I also couldnít stop giggling when someone in the movie said a line like ďJames hid in that hole and when he came out he wasnít a boy anymoreĒ.
 
Also the CGI Komodo dragons. Also the Javier Bardem CGI face. Shudder.

I could forgive all this and call it an ďokayĒ Bond, but itís nowhere near the top for me.

I always feel that Spectre was unfairly bashed. Sure It wasn't as great as Skyfall but it wasn't bad or anything. It's like Bond movies arent allowed to be just good anymore. It seems they're either seen as great or crap. Spectre was a lot of fun and was more like an older Bond movie.......which some people said is a bad thing for some reason.

I think itís as beloved as it is because of the acting, cinematography, and how overall stylish it is. And yes, it has a simple story but it was executed really well.

Wait....Craig again?  I guess I missed it.  I thought he was done with his contract and said he'd rather stab himself with fork than do another Bond film?

Yea I remember him saying that, I think that was during the shoot of the previous Bond movie. He signed up for one last movie eventually though. I think this is officially his last Bond movie.

Beyond even that, I could have sworn that Ion had even spent a very long time shopping new blood.   Between those two facts (Ion shopping and Craig being so sure about not wanting to do it again) I'm a little shocked. 

And to add a third fact to the surprise....Spectre didn't perform to expectations.

Well, Craig said he was returning back in 2017, so it's been out there for a while.

My takeaway from his comments about returning - which were made while promoting Spectre - were that he was felt burnt out from the role and was exhausted after finishing Spectre. The films have turned into such massive spectacles that I imagine filming them as Bond is extremely taxing. He's got a very blunt way of speaking and when he made comments like "I'd rather slash my wrists" that just makes me think he wanted a break before even thinking about returning (so he got a couple years out of it, at least).

Since this apparently will be the last Craig film, I hope they wrap his story nicely. Very curious what the title will be.

The title will be revealed soon, probably with the first teaser. Iím excited as hell for Rami Malek being the main villain. Heís gonna steal the whole film.

Placing my bet for Tom Hiddleston as next bond!

And I'm pretty excited for Craig's last bond film! Hopefully he gives it all he's got, and doesn't mail it in..

He would be perfect!

Rob Madden didn't do so bad in Bodyguard, another English based thriller. He would be good potentially. But Tom Hiddleston would rule.

All of my money is on a relatively-unknown actor to be the next Bond. Someone most people have never even heard of.

An unknown actor would be pretty cool. Since Craig is my favorite, I'm obviously nervous about who has to take his place.

Also, favorite Bond song? Skyfall is it for me. But there's also a great dubstep remix of it that makes it even better, for real.

Favorite bond songs in no particular order:

1. Skyfall
2. Goldeneye
3. A view to a kill
4. License to kill
5. Radiohead: Spectre (Which was changed to writing on the wall at the last min)
6. Goldfinger
7. Diamonds are forever
8. Majestys secret service

Dan Stevens for the next Bond please.

Spectre is a really odd film.  They went big with the whole Blofeld story and making it personally to Bond.........then they phoned the whole thing in.   At points the movie looks like it's set after the Thanos snap, where half the population has been wiped out - witness the (extremely boring) car chase, and the really odd train fight...where no else is around!   It's a bit of a dud really, not Quantum of Solace levels of awful, but down near the bottom tier. 

It all started so well for Craig as well.  Casino Royale isn't just a great Bond film, it's a great film period, but with the last 3 Mission Impossible movies being amazing, and the crazy John Wick franchise it feels Bond really needs to up it's game.

Totally agree about Spectre.

I was so ready to love that movie, but it was sooo strait forward. Dull and boring car chase. Plot that drags. Christopher Waltz being underwhelming somehow?? What the hell

And they are adopted brothers??? I seriously spit out my drink when I saw that reveal. What is this, Austin Powers Goldmember??

I liked Mr Jinx, and thought he had potential, but he wasn't fleshed out at all. He was just some guy causing problems.

And blofeld didn't murder his girl, despite having this cock tease of a poster, which made me think of On her majesty's secret service




I did like the opening Day of the dead scene though, but that's about it.

What's wrong with the reveal about him being Bond's half-brother? I liked that a lot... Bond has been parodied and an inspiration for spy films and parodies like AP for many decades. Just 'cause Goldmember did that doesn't take away from Spectre's plot (and the overarching plot about Blofeld being behind the previous films too). Just my two cents.

Because its contrived writing and unbelievable

The madman master conspirator of the world's most dangerous terrorist organization just happens to be step brothers with the worlds greatest spy?

Sorry, I'm not buying it
