Because TFF was a disappointment.
Didn't care for Skyfall, but Craig is almost as cool Connery in the role. Like approaching light speed, however, I don't think Craig will ever be able to surpass Connery. The closer he gets, the more impossible the task becomes. Top Tier Bonds.
I love Brosnan's Bond (and his movies, except for Tomorrow Never Dies), and Dalton's brutal assassin was sweet, so they're Tier 2.
Moore is eye-rolling, but genuinely amusing at times. Still, kind of meh for the most part. Lazenby is just some guy in some movie where he's supposed to be Bond, but it's just bad. They're Tier 3.
Fair enough, and I fully acknowledge that they will have to make a good movie either way. I'm not arguing that the return to the "classic Bond style" in and of itself guarantees a good movie, but for those of us who were turned off by the overly harsh and gritty portrayal of the past two films it's a step in the right direction.
Exactly. Using the Oscars as some sort of gold standard of acting ability is laughable, really.
^Depends. In general, Oscars go to worthy recipients. Most Oscar controversies surround who didn't get nominated, as opposed to saying that those who won were not worthy candidates.
1 Sean Connery
2 Pierce Brosnan
3 Timothy Dalton
4 Roger Moore
5 George Lazenby
What on earth has the final line in a 23 year-old Star Trek movie got to do with the final line in this year's Bond movie? Different studio, different cast, different creative team. There is absolutely nothing in common here.
What captrek is getting at is that thematically in the film, and emotionally for the audience, the "With pleasure" scene and "We've come home" resonate similarly. It is the filmmaker saying to the audience that we've been through the fire (proverbially) and now we've rebuilt and restored what was lost.
^I get that but it's a bit of a stretch to put it mildly.
You may as well say that Into Darkness is going to be a disappointment because Quantum of Solace, the second in that series of movies, was a disappointment.
It was tongue-in-cheek, Captain.
Thematically it's not that much of a stretch, but I do agree that predicting the next Bond to be a dud just because ST V was is.
But it's not that important, as captrek wasn't being all that serious (see above).
Gotcha. Didn't see that...
That gif has Shorty (the blonde guy on the left) stretched to twice his height!
I love the bell bottoms on Moore!
You can hate me now.
No, QoS has a few Bond moments - SKYFALL is NOT Bond at all.
True. And additionally, Oscars are generally given out for specific performances, not for "acting talent".
