I think that is why the earlier films are better, they are closer to the books and aren't filled with non-stop special effects.

Yep...the first movies were all based on Ian Flemming's novels.  After Connery left, the movies weren't based on the books any more.

How about the best Bond girls?  My vote would have to be Ursula Andress, tho Jill St. John (who is mentioned in 'War is the H-Word') would be a close second.

Correct Allen and that is why I poke fun at James Bond with my fanfics.  This thread was made for me, I just wish I knew about it before.  Sorry for bringing up old threads, but I just got to voice my opinion on certain things.

I didn't think the last film was too wonderful but that doesn't mean that Bond is unsavable, it is unlikely to happen but I read that Quentin Tarantino would like to remake Casino Royale, sticking as close to the book as possible, I'm sure that would get back Bond to the way it was meant to be instead of one stunt and special effect after another.

If Tarantino were to do a Bond Film, it would take Bond back to the 1960's.  I hope he does do it.

This may have been mentioned before, it has been confirmed the James Bond 21 will be called, Casino Royale.  It will not be a direct remake of the original.  This version will be more serious as any of the other 20 Bond films.

My favorite Bond movie is Goldfinger. And in my opinion, the James Bond series has given us several classics...

From Russia With Love
Goldfinger
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
The Spy Who Loved Me
For Your Eyes Only
The Living Daylights
GoldenEye

...and plenty of good ones, along with a couple of fairly cruddy movies.

By the way, someone in the KGNUAK Futurama commentary comments on Zapp's "Ship to ship intimacy" shuttle. Somebody says it's from Moonraker, which is incorrect. Then, he challenges someone to stump him on James Bond. I mean :snort snort: only losers don't know that it's from You Only Live Twice. I mean...

It's gonna be good to see Casino Royale finally get the Eon treatment.
It was, after all, basically the first Bond novel.
Fave Bond over here is Sir Sean.
It's a toss up between Goldfinger and Thunderball as
my favorite Bond flicks.
In the meantime, whilst we wait, we can entertain ourselves with:

gotta say that my fave bond film is "Live and Let die" being a huge fan of bond i admit that the character dipicted by ian fleming is probably best suited to the tall, dark and masculine actor sean connery but roger moore is my fave.  i think that all of the films roger stars in have an extra humour that sets them above the others. 
however, to contridict myself in some ways i do think that Diamonds are forever,Thunderball and Goldfinger are some classics.  i love them all in some way but i always remember loving live and let die.  roger comes off as such a swarve and cool collected guy in it and i love that.  also brill is The man with the golden gun, the island thing was fun and interesting. 

i know this is a massive post so i'll just add my last thoughts, the spy who loved me has my fave bond girl in it- goodnight!

yeah, i never had an N64 so i didn't get into the whole goldeneye game thing but i've heard it was good.  my friend liked it so much that the new game controls of PS2 X-box and even gamecube First person shoot em's are too different.  he always uses the Goldeneye control format.  wierdo!

I just saw Casino Royale and it was great.  It was sort of Back to Basics compared to Die Another Day, but it was a great film.

Die Another Day ate arse and was the most pointless Bond so far. I haven't seen Casino Royale yet, but I heard they're kinda revamping the concept now that the cartoony thing fizzed out (hint: you can't have such over-the-top plots and villains without being self-conscious) and that they're going for a semi-realistic approach to the book. Besides, two of my kinsfolk (Danes) have big roles in it, so I'm probably gonna catch it sooner or later.

Opinion follows.

Well, I guess the graphics are better, as well as the stunts, and,well...it looks new, I guess.

though I REALLY didnt like Die Another Day. An invisible car, that stupid 'dream mask' thing. I was not a fan.

I love the new one though. Fairly beliveable, and it was good.  smile

"Moonraker" for me, closely followed by "The Man with the golden gun". I dunno, Roger Moore just is my favourite Bond.

I just saw Casino Royale 2006 today - never saw the original Casino Royale from 1954 or 1967 though.

I rate it a "C". It's an alright Bond and Daniel Craig needs to grow a little more into the role in my opionin.

The opening theme (when the title song is played) looks a bit shabby with all its CGI graphics, compared to the movies from the 70ies to 80ies at least. Good thing they used the original version of the Bond Theme as it was used in "Dr. No" for the credits.

As for the story: Well it should show the very first Bond job as a 00 ever, it's ok for that. Even though at some points it doesn't quite work together with the other movies.
little example:

What also fell into my eyes is that Sony as the producing company used everything they could to squeeze their products into it. Not only does Bond use a Vaio notebook, but also a Sony Ericsson mobile and his chick even has one of the Walkman mobile phones.

Like I said, a "C" for me. It won't ever become one of my favourites, that is for sure. I'd rather watch a Timothy Dalton or a Goerge Lazenby than that and they already did suck.

No questions asked. Connery will always be the Bond.
The story of Goldfinger was rather simple, yet entertaining.

Not a huge bond fan, but of the ones I have seen, it is by far the best.

Be glad about it. That's all I'm going to say about it.

It's one of those 'movies' that seem to be made specifically for stoned people or so.

The music was nice, though.

Casino Royale is meant to be a reboot of the James Bond franchise, therefore it doesn't have to, gff.  tongue

It also doesn't fit well because they screwed up the timeline:
1. Bond is given "00" status in this movie
2. yet M mentions 9/11...
3. Profit

Where the hell in the Bond timespace continuum does this happen, dammit?!

It's meant to be a revamp. Like 'Batman Begins'. They've taken the series back to the start... again.
I say 'Again', because the old Bonds were set in the 60s and 70s, and if the new post-Cold War generation (Goldeneye onward) were supposed to be the same guy in the same timeline, then he should have been played by someone as old as... well... Sean Connery (that would actually have been cool!).
Point being, Goldeneye was a revamp in itself by necessity of age vs historical setting. So it's not a new idea.
I had hoped that Casino Royale was gonna be set in the late 1950s like the book, but I guess that would have confused the less intelligent viewers, making them furrow their brows in a vain attempt to understand the situation...

Did it ever occur to you guys that the name James Bond itself is some sort of cover identity, despite all those imformation about his family background...?   tongue

IIRC there have been only two instances where a Bond movie refered to another (but I could have missed something, has nothing to do with recurring characters)
- From Russia with Love: It's mentioned that Bond had stopped Dr. No
- For your eyes only: Bond visits the grave of his wife, who had been killed in OHMSS.

That is to ignore the recurrence of Ernst Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE.
But it is an interesting theory. Not really backed up by anything (the novels all refer to each other, though the films are vastly different). He does, however, always have the same personality and vices.

Licence to Kill references the fact the Bond was married, once.

I'm also PRETTY sure Diamonds are Forever makes some metion to OHMSS. Probably.
