The Shanghai fight against the neon lights of the city was beautiful. Loved how it was mostly in silhouette.

Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion

I'm a huge Daniel Craig fan, so (once time permits) I'm looking to seeing this; I did enjoy "Casino Royale" and I don't think "Quantum of Solace" was that bad, although I could understand why some won't like it.

I understand that Idris Elba has been in talks with Barbara Broccoli to take over someday; I wouldn't mind seeing that. (I'm watching the BBC series, "Luther," and Elba definitely has the acting/action chops).

"Skyfall" still had action but aside from the bike chase everything else was subdued
Dropping a subway train on Bond is subdued?

No more than usual. She remains conservatively dressed throughout. Sorry to disappoint.

Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion

Why would I want her not conservatively dressed?

In it lots you say, well I may just have to actually watch the thing.

I think you should read captrek's post more carefully.

Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion

I'll probably try to see this when it comes out on DVD, but I'm not exactly trembling with excitement. Craig's Bond does little for me. Bond is supposed to be the "glitz and glamor" spy franchise, but the newest films have all been too harsh and gritty.

Brosnan did the best personification of Bond of the modern actors, but got scripts that were, at best, adequate. (Though at least he didn't get saddled with Dalton's scripts).

My "best of both worlds" would have been a younger Brosnan in a remake of a classic Connery or Moore Bond such as "You Only Live Twice" or "The Spy Who Loved Me".

Oh my, I hope not. He's black and James Bond is white. It would be all wrong.

Bond is a brunette, M is a man, and Moneypenny is white. Anything else would be all wrong.

I read that Elba's not interested in the role, though; he says he doesn't want to become known as "the black James Bond." Sooner or later, though, casting a black actor in the role will happen. The question is when it will happen.

Should there be? Blacks constitute less than 2% of the population in England.

Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion

Why not? We've had six white guys in the role. A little variation is always interesting.

(More to the point, the population of England is not the only factor here, since big budget films are more and more being targeted at international rather than domestic audiences)

Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion

We've gone from "it will happen" to "why not" in two posts. Some prophecy. Fact is, James Bond's a white fella. If we're going to be all PC about it, at least have the next one be a black, Muslim, pregnant, disabled, lesbian, Welsh woman.

I'll take it.

Make sure she's beautiful while you're at it. And rather than ordering virgin martini's because she's pregnant with M's love child just skip all that bar stuff, it's a bit old hat anyway.

Well, you can't say that combination of traits wouldn't be interesting.

Arguing with you on this subject would be a waste of time, though. Time to return to your regularly scheduled review thread...
