I still don't think Daniel Craig was the best choice for 007... but that said... this movie looks like its going to be awesome, and I'm looking forward to it.
I have to disagree. I think he's the best Bond in a long time.

I'm a huge Bond fan, and I'm very opinionated about Craig's version of Bond. While I did like Casino Royale, I always thought that it's a good film, but not a Bond film. I understand their "back to the roots" take on it, but IMO, they took it too far.

And with what I read on the above link.. I fear that I might have the same view on the next movie as well..

I was watching this and I can find nothing to fault it on. I can't wait for November.

Daniel Craig is the only worthy successor to Steve McQueen as the King of Cool!
May be, but he's blond, and way to big, thus not a bond.

What's next, Vin Diesel as Bond? Barack Obama as Bond? Sorry, but Bonds have to be tall, dark and suave, and not ugly, blond and buff.

Despite that, I'm going to watch QoS the day it comes out, just for the sake of the bond girls and Astons (even if Craig the pussy has to drive one as automatic...)

It doesn't sound "Bond" enough, it sounds way too mainstream and plain, A Bond theme needs to have class and a flowing melody.

IMO The World is Not Enough however crap of a movie had a pretty good Bond theme.

After seeing the trailer a bunch of times, it looks like it'll be the opposite of Casino Royale. Casino Royale had some cool stunt scenes, but Quantum of Solace seems to have many many more over the top action sequences. It reminds me of Die Another Day, which was basically lots of special effects and little else. I generally hate action movies, hopefully this won't be like every other one.

Shit.....this was sort of what I was afraid of.....It'll probably be a very, very good action movie, just like Casino Royale. But a Bond film....Now I was already a bit put off by Casino Royale, but I ended up liking it, it still had some of the needed James Bond -iness. This time it seems there isn't any.....no Q, no gadgets, and he doesn't even go "(My name is) Bond, James Bond"......Come on....

I like the idea, I really do; to see Bond as a pissed of single man army just seeking for blood and avengeance. But it needs to be James Bond out on a rampage, not some random pissed off dude. I watch Rambo for that kind of stuff.

I'll still go and see it as soon as I can, but for now I don't have such high expectations.

the theme song is awful, Living Daylights still has the best musical score imo (and possibly the best theme)

The evil Terminator CEO from Sarah Connor Chronicles sings that song?! :blink:
lol, you don't know that she's a singer first, not an actress?

She's fronted the band Garbage since 1994

I really liked Casion Royale, hopefully this will be just as good, but i dont think it will be better. I think what they did with removing some of the stupid gadgets (the Vanish....ugghhh) but one of two would be nice. Or even better if they weren't tailor made for the situation in which the gadget would be best suited.

Another related song which I think is shit is "Another Way To Die" by jack White and Alicia Keys (how they got that, remains a mystery). Its such an American-ising style Bond song. But I should say I dont like Alicia Keys anyway, she has been depressing people for the last decade with her slow, sad piano. Its on the soundtrack anyway, hopefully it isnt used.

Just my thoughts :rolleyes:

i didnt feel like quoting all the anit craig posts and the reasons why hes not a good bond.
they made him that buff in CR so that he looked as if he came right out of whatever academy 00Agents are trained in.

QoS is supposed to be different in that reguard, and article in esquire or some shit said hes slimmed down and is playing the more suave side of bond in this movie. and for all those "hes buff blonde and ugly" not tall dark and handsome.....his bathing suit scene went straight to number 1 in all time most memorable bond bathing suit scenes..including the women lol that was also in the article i read.

not to mention on set he got 8 stitches after a kick to the face and in one scene lost the top of his finger that they re-attatched....so if there are any people out there hating on him not being tough enough i beg to differ...i think Pierce would have killed himself if that happend cause his manicure would have been ruined lol

idk i just think he is a great choice for bond, and ya i was skeptical at first...but after CR there wasnt a doubt in my mind that he was a great addition to the series

Has anyone ever heard of the game: 007: Everything or Nothing? They should have made THAT Brosnan's last Bond film because it was AWESOME.
I've got that game. You're absolutely right, it should've been a Bond movie. Awesome intro song too.

By the way, has anyone noticed the new Bond girl?



She's not making any friends among the old Soviet-style communists though...

Ukrainian Bond girl is traitor to USSR, say Russian communists

MOSCOW, October 27 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian communist group has attacked the newest Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko, for her "moral and intellectual betrayal" in starring in a film about the "enemy of the Soviet people."

Ukrainian-born Kurylenko, 28, stars in the new James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, alongside English actor Daniel Craig.

"In the name of all communists we appeal to you, Olga Kurylenko, wanton daughter of unclean Ukraine and deserter of the Slavic world. The Soviet Union educated you, cared for you, and brought you up for free, but no one suspected that you would commit this act of intellectual and moral betrayal," the St. Petersburg-based KPLO group's statement read, going on to call James Bond "the killer of hundreds of Soviet people and their allies."

Ukraine is a former Soviet republic. However, in recent years, its Western-leaning leadership has sought membership of the NATO military alliance. The majority of Ukrainians are against NATO membership, and the July NATO-Ukraine military exercises in the Odessa, Crimea and Black Sea coastal regions were met by large and at times violent protests.

"Your peers are engaged in struggles against NATO and you lounge around on the Cote d'Azur. How could you desert your homeland in its moment of need? Do you really want Crimean girls to be raped by cruel and stupid American marines?" the statement also read.

"Do you know what they did with women who welcomed the occupiers in the Great Patriotic War? Where is your patriotism?" the statement also read. It was signed by a number of communist local MPs and party members.

How can someone be a traitor to a country that no longers exists...? Oh, who cares. She's HOT!
