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

Oh, it's more than that. Brosnan came across--to me, anyway--as the most refined, the most cultured of the Bonds. He's the most reserved, the most polite, if you will. He's a gentleman with a slick sense of style, who could still kick your behind if need be.

Honestly...he struck me as the Bond most comfortable in a tuxedo--and frankly, in his own skin.

I hope Newman doesn't have an ego problem. "No, I want to use my own themes, I don't want to use the James Bond themes, we already heard them thousands of times!"



That's what James Horner, Hans Zimmer, etc... would be doing.

He'll probably do what the producers tell him to do. If they want more of a liberal use of the Bond theme, he'll give a more liberal use of the Bond theme. If they want a limited use of the theme (as in CR and Qos), then he'll limit the use of the theme.

I have no desire to see any Bond film with Craig as Bond or the current production team.

They should not have let Brosnan go early...he was perfect in the role.
Brosnan's Bond feels like he was created by some advertising agency to sell watches, cars and vodka. It's as though they took all the stereotypical attributes of Fleming's character, combined them, and grew Brosnan in a vat. All the other Bonds have something that defines them: Connery's toughness, Moore's charm, Dalton's darkness, with Craig having some elements of both Connery and Dalton. But what does Brosnan have? Beyond the Bond stereotypes, he's essentially a cipher.

Also, he runs like a girl.
He was a mix of all of his predecessors. Connery's charm, Moore's humour, Lazenby's vulnerability and Dalton's humanity. As I've said before in this thread, he was exactly what the franchise needed at that time - people were ready for a populist Bond, a sort of 'best of' 007. You only have to look at the box office receipts for his movies compared to any of those from the early 1980s onwards.

As someone said, Craig is like the doorman in the casino, Brosnan like the croupier.

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

Brosnan coming across as comfortable in his own skin and the other things that Rush Limberg described...was kind of the point. He was already established, comfortable with his life style and more importantly his job. Brosnan's Bond was a veteran agent and one can assume been in the Navy for many years by "Die Another Day".

Craig is still in his formulative years. He is meant to be sloppy and rough, make mistakes and learn from them. It will be interesting to see if he has evolved during the time between "Quantum of Solace" and "SkyFall". One thing that I hope is finally referenced in the latter is his naval service. I don't think it was mentioned in "Casino Royale" where MI-6 actually recruited James from. He'd obviously been on their radar for quite some time, enough to get M's attention at least.

Blu-Ray box set



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Blu-ray trailer



As much as I would like the blu ray set there are some films that I would care to skip

-The Man with the golden gun
-A View to a kill
-Die Another Day
-Octopussy

I already have two of those from a Box set

So I can't wait till these are sold individually

Well, Naomi Harris noted that her character thinks of herself as Bond's equal--but she's really his junior.

Perhaps Bond's matured enough by Skyfall to find himself taking her character under his wing--mentoring her with the lessons he's learned the hard way in Casino and Quantum.

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

One thing I'll always prefer about Brosnan over Craig is that he damn well looks like he's loving every minute of being 007, whereas too often Daniel Craig often doesn't.
Brosnan is a bit of a greatest hits Bond, but frankly I don't think of that as a bad thing, and he was a nice amalgam of the lighter/darker Bonds that'd come previously.

Brosnan could have made a decent Simon Templar, but as good an actor he is I just couldn't buy him as 007. To be specific: it isn't Brosnan I object so much in his Bond films, it's the films themselves.

I liked Bronsan's films. They were loud, splashy, silly, and, most importantly, fun. They knew exactly what they were doing and were having a blast doing it.
