Not gonna argue with you but Craig is my favorite Bond other than Connery and Casino Royale is probably the 2nd or 3rd best bond ever.

No it's alright. I have never seen the appeal of Craig. To me he is a mashup of Jason Statham and Jason Bourne. Connery of course is the best bond but I grew up with Bronsan so I am a little biased there.

Kind of surprised Mendes is doing this.

I actually enjoyed Brosnan. But, hell, I'd take Timothy Dalton any day over Craig.


And by "best" you must mean boring. God that movie bored me to tears, except for the airport scene.

Not really sure how Casino Royale was boring, in any way, but to each their own.

Liked that movie, Cruise, who i usually hate, was quite good.

I liked it a lot as well, though I usually enjoy Cruise. Haven't seen that one in a long time, actually.

The last two Bond movies have been great, high hopes for this one.

Man, I sure do. Really, this franchise needs a return to form, like a a villain who gets a different face and wants to destroy the earth with a sun satellite. If this movie doesn't have invisible cars driving through melting ice castles and asians with diamonds stuck in their fucking face getting crushed by chandeliers, I'm boycotting

Ledger wasn't directing The Dark Knight though. If Sam Mendes was playing James Bond then your defense would make more sense.
My comparison makes perfect sense. People complain about odd pairings in movies all the time when they end up being very good, acting or directing wise.

Doesn't matter anyway. He's not directing, only coming on as a consultant: http://movies.ign.com/articles/105/1058355p1.html

Can't wait...another suckfest.

Since Daniel Craig got cast, I have not enjoyed one second of the new Bond franchise.

The first movie was so fucking badass. How can you hate it?!

The second fell pretty far short with me, though.

Quantum might have been a disappointment but it wasn't a bad movie by any stretch. It looked great and worked as a movie so Marc Forster did his job.

If you want to blame it on something, blame it on the script/story. The straight continuation of Casino Royale is one reason it's a slight step down.

One of my biggest problem's with Quantum was how they shot the action sequences. The camera was way too shaky and it was both hard to tell what was going on and headache inducing. And the plot, which should have been awesome (Bond out for revenge), just fell short. I can't even remember the villain from that movie.

I hope they start this rolling soon. I really like Mendes, so I hope he makes a great film.
