Bond. A Daniel Craig Bond. 2019.

If it seems off-topic, stay until the end.

I still want a John Woo Bond movie.

I still want Portishead to contribute a Bond theme song, but I think that ship may have sailed.

I mean that was pretty much what Mission Impossible 2 was, don’t you think?

I can picture a Bond title sequence when I listen to “Sour Times.” Close enough for me.

Yes, but being “like” Bond movies doesn’t make Mission Impossible(s) actual Bond movies, IMHO.

Plus, we haven’t seen too much of Woo in the West lately, and I’m too lazy to go searching for foreign films :(

Would Massive Attack do? Cuz I’d be onboard with that, too.

Maybe I’m still peeved about House losing “Teardrop” in streaming releases :(

Aw man, now I’m thinking of an Idris Elba Bond movie with a Massive Attack soundtrack. That would just be the shit.

Man, that sucks for anyone who discovers the show now. I can’t even imagine that show without the flavor of that song.

It’s okay, though. They’ll still get to enjoy panning shots of all the principle cast members looking sad in their apartments in side-view set to “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” in every third episode.

Worth it, thanks!

Um, yes, please

And what about Freddy Mercury as the bad guy? That should be interesting.

I don’t know…

Spectre ended on a low note for me. Terrible movie, not “Bond” at all imho.

I recently watched “From Russia With Love.”

imho much more Bond, even if it had some cheesy bits, like the helicopter exploding and Bond using hisnpetrol tanks to burn boats chasing him, but still having enough petrol for a speed boat to get from offshore Turkey to Venice overnight…

:rolleyes

Ofxourse I’ll watch it at cinema. I’m just not excited as I was for Casino Royale.

How about in the post-Craig era, they set up the new iteration in the 60s? Bring it back to basics.

Very interesting idea. Make it a period piece? That would be a lot more expensive to do, I’d think. But maybe not. Even the modern period ones cost a lot to make, and are still the tent pole achievements for stuntmen and stunt coordinators (though Mission Impossible franchise might be catching up). Still instead of doing a fight on top of a train, for example, you’d need to find a train that was running in the 60s, and re-create that look, and have a fight on top of THAT train. I’d imagine it would add to the cost a lot.

We are due for another bond in space.

That would be groovy.
