    I liked, if that’s the right word, how they were pretty much prepared to summarily execute Bond there for quitting. Pretty shocking (try not saying that to yourself in a Connery-in-Goldfinger-voice).

    While I really like the Craig films, it does irk me a little that he’s quit or been suspended in basically all of them. I think it’s happened more in his 4 (released) films to date than all the others put together. It kinda loses the impact that it had when Lazenby or Dalton did it.

    It’s definitely overplayed!

    I remember reading about how QOS was going to end with Bond quitting the service, but then it turned out to be the opposite: “I never left.” I assume it was a discarded idea that was then brought back for SPECTRE. EON tends to save unused ideas for future films.

    Just as a side note a really cool book I got "50 Best Bond Cars." It's a really neat book featuring some of the unique vehicles that Bond movies have had over the years. Q did trick out a car in QOS but it's not overdone like the older films, and I had forgotten that was there in that film.

    Please tell me the Ford LTD sedan Roger Moore uses as a rental car in A View to a Kill doesn't make the list.
