    Faraci has never had an opinion or an idea worth noting that I'm aware of.

    Sure, why not Orci? Let him do it.

    Time After Time is not a well-directed film or one that showed a lot of directorial promise. It's memorable because it was cleverly written and well cast.

    Meh, Leonard Nimoy did okay and he had only TV work in his pocket at that point. As long as the script is good, I'm pretty solid with it.

    I can guarantee you that Nicholas Meyer gave zero fucks about what 'the fans' wanted.

    Seriously, the more I think about Orci directing, the more I like it.

    Sure why not, aside from his conspiracy theorist nonsense he actually says good things in interviews about Trek. Plus his last two writing efforts on Trek made $1 billion from all sources and got writing award nominations and critical acclaim.

    Up to here, it's opinion about movies (both actual and hypothetical) and that's fine.

    This is an unnecessary swipe at other posters and thus not fine. Please remember to avoid doing that.

    No one has any idea what Tarantino's movie would have been like, since it was never made.

    We do know that the film actually made was tremendously successful and popular, so the producers made a number of good calls there - just as Paramount has with Star Trek in the last decade.

    The guy's movie work is mediocre overall. There's nothing that really stands out for me other than his Star Trek work. I could see him getting the job, but he'd have to get a decent haircut first. :lol:

    I can't see Tarantino doing a James Bond that was "faithful and absolutely amazing classic". I just can't see that his style fits that.

    Oh, the idea of doing another film with Brosnan is appalling in and of itself. He was almost as dull and doddering as Roger Moore.

    I didn't mind him that much (though how he was going to play a "younger" Bond is admittedly mysterious). He wasn't well-served by the scripts he got for the most part.

    Was Tarantino gonna do young Bond? I think that was more of an EON thing, because in the book CASINO ROYALE Bond is already a veteran 00-agent. The whole aspect of Bond being a newly promoted was something one of the producers has been thinking of doing for a long time and tried to go for that story after Roger Moore left the role but Cubby Broccoli rejected it.

    Aside from that, I think Brosnan could have pulled it off with the right script and direction. I think by the 2000s he really grew up as an actor and CASINO ROYALE, if done in the style of the book, would have made a pretty good swan song for him. Some of my favorite moments of him as Bond is in DIE ANOTHER DAY, which is unfortunate because he got so much better in the role yet his films kept going downhill.

    Brosnan could have also pulled off Craig Casino Royale. I think that only the beginning chase sequence would have been different, and that's it.

    Nope. Not good or interesting enough. It would have bombed.

    Well, it just must be true if you say it.

    That's usually the case, yes. :cool:

    Brosnan was pretty popular as Bond, so I doubt it would have flopped. The closest there has ever been to a "flop" was LICENCE TO KILL, and that still made a lot of money despite seriously under-performing in the US.

    Also, Roger Moore was awesome. You can't get more awesome than ending one of your flicks by rogering a hot babe in zero gravity. But I get it, I used to be a staunch Moore hater for a few years.
