    The franchise reboot with Daniel Craig was really good for Bond’s fans even though Solace was not as good as Casino Royale but I’m really looking forward to the next one.

    There is still some humor but the cheesiness is gone and that’s a good thing.

    This is great news…Craig is the best Bond…killer all the way. Cold and ruthless.

    If they can out-do Casino Royal I will be truly impressed and amazingly happy! Lol. 😉

    When a studio is forced to halt one of their most sure ways to make money due to financial issues, one can only imagine the bleak picture. I just hope it isn’t another “sequel” like Quantum of Solace was. James Bond is a character, not a series. I may be wrong, but aren’t most of the Bond movies stand-alone? I’m not a buff, so I wouldn’t know if any of the movies have anything to do with one another.

    Sam Mendes directing? This is sure to be amazing, he makes some well done films.

    Whisky you clearly don’t know Sam Mendes films. This film is going to be exactly what you don’t want. Stick to watching porn, explosions and jackass in 3D if you can’t handle an action movie with some solid story telling.

    “cheesiness is gone”??? I’ve been a fan for ages but not anymore!! I was really shocked to see the lead women show more nudity then usual! I will Not B seeing another one, period. There’s way too much as it is. Why would I want to see more?? In the past they had mostly good action Plots; now I guess they’ve run out of ideas!? Like a lot of Reviewers say.

  10. Rita • January 14, 2011 @ 12:11 AM

    Pardon me, I mean mostly run out of ideas. In 2010 they seemed to have gotten a little more original plots and according to the Trailers in the movies, it seems this year will B better!

    @likeit1 definitely great news, Craig is an awesome bond, but Sean Connery was also fantastic!!!

  12. C-Dub • January 14, 2011 @ 11:31 AM

    Yes! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but Connery and Craig are the best. Then close behind is Brosnan and Moore then the others which will remain pointlessly nameless. Although, On Her Majestys Secret Service was pretty good. To see this franchise keep going strong is iconic and needed in culture. It just gets better.

    I say with todays h-tech you should have create better scenes with 3D and so on. O, anotherthing is why not try to add a little bit of asian like in the movie. I mean, the movie should be world-wide nationalties, right.
