Cloaked cars, North Korean satelittes firing big ass laser weapons still win the stupid action/stunt awards for Die Another Day.
agreed. i tend to view QoS more on the level of Licence to Kill. both were good, decent movies, they just didn't measure up to the movies that preceded them.

I don't understand why people hate Quantum of Solace so much. I thought it was plenty exciting. It had everything I want from a James Bond movie: things blew up, cars crashed, and James Bond shot up all the bad guys. Seriously, how much can you nitpick that?
Probably because the whole point of the Bond reboot was to dial back on all the sillyness and present a more realistic take on the source material. This was definitely evident in Casino Royale but by the QoS we were presented with action and stunts that would make Die Another Day blush.
The action wasn't too silly.

The problem was that I couldn't tell what the hell was going on during the action scenes. I blame the director for that.
Ah, the Jason Bourne effect.

The working title is "A Quantum of Poopoo."

Okay, no it isn't.

Starring Scott Bakula as Felix Leiter, in A Quantum Of Leap!

Cameo appearance by Samuel L. Jackson as Jules Winnfield: Casino Royale (with cheese)!

And of course Bond's failed career as an artist, in Tomorrow Never Dyes.

I worry a little about the director and the how he will handle action scenes. QoS was just terrible in this area and I am hoping for much better in this area. It will be a long wait until 2012, of course maybe I will be able to afford my DBS by then.

^ Most of the action scenes in Bond movies have handled by second unit directors anyway. People like Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough) had very little action experience before being hired to direct a 007 movie.

John Logan? Will the villain be a clone of Bond, played by an actor bearing no resemblance to Craig?
Or maybe Felix will commit self sacrifice to save Bond, thus excising him from future bond movies.

....good to hear that 007 23 is a go, especially with Craig returning and Sam Mendes still there, but I'm disappointed to see no mention of Peter Morgan. Here's hoping he does a polish.
I still wish they would leave the director's chair to Martin Campbell or find someone that they would be happy with to sign on for multiple movies so that there is some sense of directorial consistency.

Great news. I was worried that Craig could suffer the same fate as Dalton due to studio ineptness and financial problems.

I thought CR and QoS were among the best in the series, light years better than the Brosnan cartoons. Let's hope the next one is equally brilliant.

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

I'd like 2 more for Craig. QofS was okay, just too devoid of the traditional things that make Bond Bond for me. DaD went too far into fantasy, CR was a nice origin but Quantum just went too far the other way. Reign it in a little and get the next two right. After that, Fassbender can be Bond.

You should probably blame Dan Bradley, the second unit director. He worked on all the Bourne films.

.

I'm not sure the screenwriter can be blamed for the casting . . . .
Actually, the script notes specifically said 'Shinzon should be played by someone who looks f*ck all like Patrick Stewart.'
