Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

What worries me about Craig's gadgets is their current real world immediacy and thus short shelf life. There is so much product placement for the newest phone and watch and all that-but those things from his two movies are already out of date. Do we care if he had a Sony Ericcson then? Because now he's going to have to have a smartphone that is honestly, in all actuality, a damn tricorder. After Craig's tenure they may well have to go back to the sixties, because there will be no more fantastic gadgets to show and by time the movie comes out, what he'll have onscreen will be behind.

I agree with Candlelight about the oneliners though, in that I think Craig's are a little more subtle and dry, but they need to have a little more humor coming soon. My favorite scene from CR is the trainride with Vesper, because there is some levity and wit to it.

That's a good way to put it. I really hope the 'Bondian structure' is back for the next one, too. And I'd like to see Moneypenny indeed. However, I don't think they have to name her yet if they don't want to. Just have M have a female secretary in one scene. We'll know who she is, and expect more room for that in the subsequent picture. Besides, when she does introduce herself, we can get a fourth wall glance from Craig regard every penny of that money.
