Dalton's Biggest Problem Wasn't Following up To Roger Moore and an Audience Unprepared for a darker Bond or The Cultural Climate (such as the AIDs Scare) Or even that he wasn't an Escapist Bond.............. But the fact his films are pretty weak entries

I will state flatout Dalton is my favorite Bond. Not only because I already have a bias before getting into 007 thanks to his superb acting in older films like Cromwell and Lion In the Winter (man his role as Philip puts the Beejeezles in me)...... But for the same reason everyone here states that he's the most faithful interpretation of Fleming's original protagonist so far on film.
In fact if you watched his 60s and 70s stuff you will understand why Dalton was an strong choice to follow up on Connery and they even tried to approach him a second time before Moore was selected after Lazenby called quits. I will save that for another topic but I really recommend people watch his performance in Wuthering Heights, Cromwell, and Lion In the Winter (3 of his earliest roles) to see just how PERFECT he was as an obvious choice as replacing Sean Connery as James Bond.
The answer is much simpler. TLD and LTK were weak franchise entries. They're by no means terrible but at best they are average films and I honestly would rate them as mediocre.
Even with how dark his Bond became, this is the real problem. If TLD had the same quality say GoldenEye, From Russia With Love, and most specific Casino Royale (esp since that film successfully convinced the public the change in Bond formula so easily because of its excellence), I think audiences would have accepted Dalton more smoothly and thus more at least a trilogy in his era rather than the incomplete duology we got.
In fact watching the films was pretty hard because of just how often subpar everything else is from cinematography to fight choreography and often underwhelming cast choices (esp the chosen Bond girls) and most of all boring slow mediocre writing.
The only real reason we ultimately find a way to enjoy his films is because Dalton is really a top tier actor. Dalton himself is the saving graces of these otherwise mediocre films.
Basically you can get Brosnan or Connery to act in TLD and it'd still come of as very weak because the whole film was mediocre. LTK without the 007 licensing and Dalton's outstanding acting would have come off as a generic action movie.
So basically Dalton suffered the same problems Brosnan did except he lacked a GoldenEye quality movie to kick off his tenure as Bond.
Anyone agree or not? I mean Craig started in the same similar rough place Dalton did and even had more attacks from the start for even other reasons that %%%$ed off long time fans such as being blonde instead of the traditional dark haired Bond and not seeming like the ideal first choice for the Bond archetype (as many others including George Clooney and my man Julian McMahon from Charmed, a show I'm also a fan of, were considered)......... But Casino Royale was so damn excellent in everyway (including Craig's acting in the film even if it wasn't what hardcore fans consider James Bondesque) that it gave Craig the sparkle needed to be accepted as the newest Bond esp by the mainstream.

Daniel Craig's journey as James Bond from 2006-2021.

So it is known by a lot of people that Craig is going to retire from the Bond franchise after the film No time to die releases. Many know this, many got over it but somewhere deep inside me, it bothers me. This man had refined the character of James Bond. He brought a new life to the character and defined what being a true MI6 agent is like. Craig was the epitome of darkness, brutality and passion in the Bond universe. I am surely going to miss him because he has been my childhood. I was three when Casino Royale had released, five during Quantum of Solace, 9 during Skyfall, 12 during Spectre and 18 during No time to die...It's like, I have seen him do Bond films for my whole childhood period and it's sad to see such a man who established such a great impact on so many people's hearts being the James Bond for so many years taking a departure from the franchise. I am not going to forget this man; for me, I would see his face when I see the name James Bond. Time flies and none of them wait for us and at some point it was always certain that he would inevitably leave the Bond franchise like every other Bond actor did but it still kind of gets me whenever I think this man shaped my love for English films during my childhood.

Pitching a 007 reboot

Pitching a 007 reboot
Hello! So, as many of you already know, No Time to Die will be Daniel Craig's last movie as James Bond. The actor has been around since 2006's Casino Royale (for over fourteen years), so it was about time that the "Craig era" ended. After Craig leaves, the franchise can go two routes: following the Craig movies with a new actor or rebooting the series with a new version of the character.
I very much prefer the second route, since I feel Craig's Bond should be wrapped up by the end of No Time to Die, letting a new version of 007 get in the ground. So, with my very little knowledge of how Reddit works (I'm very new to this), I've decided to make a raw pitch of how I would like to see a new version of James Bond. I hope this doesn't end up being a TL;DR post, but here we go!

Cast
To begin this pitch, I've decided to introduce you to my own cast for the 007 universe. I don't have a clear idea on specific characters or secondary actors, but I am very decided on who I want to play the part of the main characters.

· JAMES BOND - Richard Madden
https://preview.redd.it/4nfwppeutvw51.jpg?width=1275&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9f2e957f27bbc6163d878b53fa3d9440009c4647
This is the one I'm most confident of. Since I watched him on Game of Thrones and after following his career and public appearances, I could see no other as James Bond.
Richard Madden is young (34 years old at the moment) and could play Bond for many years to come. He also has the style, charm, looks and feel of the world's best agent, so he could play a very fleshed out, stylish version of the character that also feels human and vulnerable. His role in HBO's epic fantasy has proven him to be a worthy actor, and one who could take the mantle of one of Hollywood's most iconic roles with enough value. So, yes, as much as I'd also like other actors, Richard Madden IS James Bond.

· M - Idris Elba
https://preview.redd.it/8onh7v7puvw51.jpg?width=720&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a58c637ee5a82e387212be54dfbcac390401f33a
Yes, yes. I know Idris Elba is many people's favourite choice for James Bond. But to me, Elba, who is now 48 years old, would be a much better fit for 007's instructor and guide, M.
The role, which was previously depicted by the iconic portrayal of Judi Dench and has lately been taken by the magnificent Ralph Fiennes, requires someone who equals confidence, strength and style. Both Dench and Fiennes have perfectly matched these characteristics, and I'm very confident that Elba does too. We've previously seen him in some sort of "mentor" slash "boss" role in Pacific Rim, so imagining him as M is pretty easy.

· Q - Phoebe Waller-Bridge
https://preview.redd.it/eu6yt3tdvvw51.jpg?width=940&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a240a98d865e4d321a4ea949443765c482d5e147
Q was a tough choice for me for a long time. First I wanted Benedict Cumberbatch, but it felt too obvious and he's already very busy with his Doctor Strange role. Then I thought of Jane Levy, but she lacks the qualities that I was looking for in a character like Q. But this year I saw Fleabag and, when thinking of fancasting Q, it was clear as water: Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
I always think of Q as this smart-ass, witty, kind of socially weird character that is all brain but has no real skill for people. Waller-Bridge is an absolute hurricane of wit, is clever as hell and has this weird feeling to her that makes her both strange and attracting. Put a pair of glasses on her and there you go, the perfect Q.
For this version, I'd have Q be not only the one that creates Bond's gadgets, but also a more "guy-in-the-chair" type of character. So... yes, Phoebe is my favourite choice for obvious reasons.

· Ben Mendelsohn - Dr. Julius No
https://preview.redd.it/wk61kgthwvw51.jpg?width=1365&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=127b79d234af8c3ac81b157e0dcffc7b0f4557a5
So, while this reboot wouldn't be adapting Ian Fleming's Dr. No, I would very much like the movie to take back Bond's first cinematic villain in a new story. I know Ben Mendelsohn is always depicted as the "bad guy" in a story, but damn, he does it good.
Mendelsohn has a very sinister feeling to him, but could also twist Dr. No's character to be a much more interesting villain in this reboot. So, while I'm not extremely confident on this choice (I thought of Tom Hiddleston first), this is for now my choice for the reboot's main villain.

· JAWS - John Cena
https://preview.redd.it/nxamxye5xvw51.jpg?width=2738&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2e5e4fd9872e4cf80e0896f3dd128563cc3bdd4d
Besides the main villain, I want a secondary baddie who plays a more physical role that can put Bond at risk in a fight. It felt pretty obvious right from the get-go that I'd take back one of 007's most legendary bad guys, Jaws, and I instantly thought of John Cena.
While he's too much of a good guy, I believe Cena would be the perfect fit for a brute villain who's all muscles and not much brains, and who can have Dr. No's back as his number one man.

Director
The thought of who could be the new Bond director has been running through my mind for a looong time now. For a brief moment I thought of Christopher Nolan, but I feel like his approach would be very similar to Craig's movies, with a very grounded and realistic tone. And for this new 007 I want a more sci-fi oriented spy movie, just like his more classic adventures. Gadgets, impossible stunts and a kinda techy tone to it.
So, for this movie, my pick is definitely Guy Ritchie. The guy can play with crazy elements, can do action scenes and balance drama and comedy like few others. I absolutely love his job in the Sherlock Holmes movies, and his Man from UNCLE movie proved he could NAIL a spy thriller movie.
For the record, Matthew Vaughn would be my second choice. He's a fantastic director and has already touched the spy genre (you know what I'm talking about), so he'd be a good fit as well.

Music
So intense
One of the most important elements of a 007 movie is the music. Not only the iconic "movie songs" that have welcomed artists such as Tina Turner, Adele or, most recently, Billie Eilish, but also the soundtrack as well.
For the movie song, my definitive pick would be Arctic Monkeys. The band from Sheffield has proven they can neil the Bond tone with songs like Fir and the Thud, or their more recent album Tranquility Base + Casino, and they've already stated their interest on making a Bond theme. So there is no doubt: the authors of the smash hit Do I Wanna Know? should make the song for a James Bond reboot.
As for the soundtrack itself, Michael Giacchino is the only one I can think of. He's had a pretty amazing career, composing the scores for movies such as Rogue One, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Doctor Strange, Star Trek and the upcoming The Batman movie, and has proven to be an incredibly versatile composer that can flesh out the tone of a movie with just a few notes. I'd absolutely love to hear a 007 soundtrack composed by him.

Story pitch and conclusion
I'm not very clear on what I'd do with the story of the movie, but I know I would like to have an unexperienced James Bond, maybe even telling some sort of origin story to him, and have him meet his allies for the first time. Of course, Dr. No would play a threat on a global scale, that would have Bond in the middle of a great test to prove his value as who would later be known as the world's greatest spy.
With a cast like the one I've crafted, Guy Ritchie's vision and Giacchino/Arctic Monkeys on the music, I believe the movie would be interesting to say the least. Let me know what you think!

  25. No Time to Die (2021) - Daniel Craig (53) and Ana de Armas (33) - 20 years (UPDATE: assuming she is the main Bond Girl in the film)
Some observations:
- To make it easier, I'm considering how old the actors were (or will be, in the case of Craig and De Armas in No Time to Die) in the year their respective films were released.
- "Goldfinger" and "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" were the only occasions when the main Bond Girls were older than James Bond.
- Disregarding the "Goldfinger" and "On Her Majesty Secret Service" cases, the smallest age difference between Bond and the main Bond Girl was Connery and Ursula Andress in "Dr. No".
- To no one's surprise, Moore had the biggest age difference, with Carole Bouquet in FYEO and Tanya Roberts in AVTAK.
- If anyone finds an mistake, you can correct me.

Well, here's a Shining connection I wasn't aware of....

We were discussing the chronology of actors portraying James Bond.
The first James Bond played on any movie or TV screen was an adaptation of Casino Royale in 1954 on the anthology series "Climax!". That very first Bond was played by the American actor Barry Nelson, also known for portraying Stuart Ullman 26 years later.

Recommendation for Craig fan

I haven’t seen every Bond film, but being a younger guy, Craig is by far my favorite. I love the grittiness and the seriousness of the Craig era. I don’t like Spectre but I like the other three. Casino and Skyfall are some of my favorite films of all time. Quantum is underrated.
Anyways, I’ve seen some of the old bonds, I like some of them but not all. I do not like roger moore.
My question is which older bond is closest to Craig’s? Is there a more serious James Bond film to recommend, similar to skyfall or casino royale?
EDIT: Thank you so much for the Responses! I have a second question if you guys don't mind answering. I LOVE Ian Fleming's original novels, and the novels that came after him. The novels depict Bond in a very specific way. In your opinion, which actor best captures the Bond from the novels?

Did movies survived up to today despite the outcry that TV will kill cinema because its free thats been around since the 50s is because films have been far superior in quality to TV until about the last 15 years? That people were willing paid pricey 1-time tickets despite free entertainment on TV?

Inspired by a post I saw.
In fairness to actors who viewed TV as beneath them ... for a very long while they were totally right. Television has only actually gotten good in the last decade and a half. It's like OP's argument about video games: you can enjoy TV from earlier, but you can't claim that it genuinely competed with books or film. It was just kind of shit across the board.
Indeed despite how mainstream news media esp Newspapers have been crying out loud that television will kill the film medium, movies have survived all the way to today. Despite mainstream news since the 50s stating TV will steal away the movie industry's customer because its free, people still continued to pay pretty expensive prices just to see a movie for a one-time view.
So many theories arise the dominance of television did not completely kill movies and movies still continue to be profitable up until today and one of them is the quote above about how despite being free, TV shows were pretty crap through and through until recent time and the best TV shows could not hold a candle to good or even just subpar movies nevermind Academy Award winning stuff.
I actually am beginning to believe this is the case. I am watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one of the MASTERPIECES of television of the 90s and I also did a Charmed rewatch back in August and am on a Beverly Hills 90210 rewatch as will as just started on Xena. I thought these shows were the best things ever growing up but uuugggh they are so hard to get through today esp since I'm also doing a viewthrough of Audrey Hepburn's completely filmography and other Golden Age Hollywood stars. The differences in quality in everything from acting to writing and music blows away Xena and Buffy. There is simply no comparison. Charmed and 90210 cannot touch even lesser known stuff like Gene Tierney's movies.
The only TV show I'm watching ATM that I can honestly say matches cinema standards is Alias and while its so damn good it legitimately beats your run of the mill Spy films and even the weaker James Bond movies, it cannot hold a cradle to From Russia With Love, GoldenEye, and esp Casino Royale and Skyfall.
So I completely believe the quoted text above and the theory that television was far below other mediums at the time except maybe comics that was why people continued to pay expensive tickets to see movies and while film continues to survive until today.
Your opinion? What arguments can you come up with whether this is true or false?

How come we never got an established A Lister to be a Bond girls or even villains and support roles such as Audrey Hepburn or Sophia Loren until the Brosnan Era?

Inspired in that I seen a few Sophia Loren movie that were spy flicks and more importantly I seen the Audrey Hepburn Robin Hood movie (which also had Sean Connery in the lead role with Audrey playing the typical Marian role).
It seems the Bond girls and also plenty of female villains we got are almost entirely models and playboy girls with maybe some lesser known to unknown strictly cinema or TV names at the time. I mean the other day I watched the 70s Three Musketeers trilogy and was so stunned by Raquel Welch, thinking I must check out more of her............ Until I discovered that wasn't the first time I seen her....... She was in Thunderball (which basically kicked off her career!).
There's also the fact that at the time Casino Royale was in theater, I was wondering that Vesper looked like that gorgeous aristocrat Orlando Bloom was with in Kingdom of Heaven....... And damn my mind went away when I discovered Vesper's actress was Eva Green and her name was also in Kingdom of Heaven about a year prior to Casino Royale!
As I finish up the Moore era and start on Dalton today in my James Bond Rewatch Marathon, it amazes me that so many of the gorgeous ladies of the franchise I'd recognize in more famous roles I seen before (and associate with those roles than James Bond despite technically seeing some of these Bond movies as a kid before I did my first Dr. No to Die Another Day Run)....... And I first watched all the James Bond film prior to Craig's run years ago in 2005 as they were filming Casino Royale so that I update my knowledge of the franchise and finally understand the difference between each Bonds as the newcomer Craig takes over since I only seen mostly Brosnan and bits of Connery when I was growing up.
It seems only the Brosnan Era was when a bunch of established actresses who were A listers at the time they starred in Bond and not known for other non-movie stuff like modeling or TV were starting to take lead roles as Bond girls or at least villains and support roles. I mean even as a kid growing up I can recognize Sophia Marceau from Bravehart, Michelle Yeoh from various movies my martial arts film-obsessed uncle would often watch when i came to his home to be babysitted, and Halle Berry from X-Men and other stuff when i saw Die Another Day in theaters with my dad!
So how come prior to Brosnan we never got A listers, not even for villainess and female support roles let alone Bond girls? Seeing Sean Connery with Audrey Hepburn (an star I very much LOOOOOVVVVVEEE!!!!) was basically a dream movie come true minus the fact it wasn't a Spy movie and its so surprising to see Sophia Loren not only star in a number of spy stuff but even alongside A listers like James Coburn.
So I'm surprised with how Connery was basically the face of Action Movies in his time, he never got Sophia Loren to star alongside him! Same with all other actors before Brosnan! No Lynda Carter with Roger Moore which would have been perfect with how campy 1970s Wonder Woman was (which I'm watching alongside my marathon of Bond)!
Why is this? What did the Brosnan era bring to the table that they finally started bringing huge household names (or least A listers in their home country in the case of Michelle Yeoh) as Bond girls and villains or support? Why did we never see an Elizabeth Taylor Bond girl? Or Julie Christie in one movie as the role? Or even someone like Brigette Bardot as a villainess?

Dave Prowse: Darth Vader actor dies aged 85

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 64%. (I'm a bot)
Dave Prowse, the Bristolian former bodybuilder best known for playing Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, has died aged 85.
Prowse's career as an actor spanned 50 years, but it was his role as the Sith Lord in Star Wars that brought him international fame.
Prowse made his film debut in 1967 James Bond spoof Casino Royale playing Frankenstein's Creature, a part he was asked to play again in two films from the iconic Hammer film series, 1970's Horror Of Frankenstein and 1974's Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell.
Spotted by director George Lucas in the 1971 film Clockwork Orange, in which he played a bodyguard, Prowse was invited to audition for the roles of Darth Vader and Chewbacca in 1977's Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.
With the success of Star Wars, Prowse became a regular on the fan circuit and attended conventions around the world for almost 40 years, but he was rumoured to have later fallen out with director Lucas and was banned from official events in 2010.
Despite the enduring clamour for Star Wars, the actor always maintained that playing the Green Cross Code Man, which he first portrayed in 1975, was the "Best job I ever had".

Thoughts on every James Bond film

So in April, I decided to watch every Bond film from "From Russia with Love" to "Spectre". I had already seen Dr. No for a english assignment last year and while I enjoyed the film didn't feel the need to rewatch it. So here are my thoughts:
Dr. No - A great start to the Bond franchise that is introduces a lot of the classic elements, including "Bond, James Bond", Girls and cold kills. The film is quite quaint by modern standards but is still fun to watch. I will say the second half of the opening is just plain odd though, why after the James Bidn theme am I hearing bongos?. I will say that I wish we saw more of Dr. No than we do in the actual film, as, but otherwise Jospeh Wiseman gives a great performance. Overall 7.5/10
From Russia with Love - Okay this one just got better as it went along. While the pre-title sequence isn't bad we don't actually get to bond for a bit of the film and it does drag a bit. I also love that in the second movie we're already trying to play with the fact that Bond loves to sleep with women. I also find it funny that Robert Shaw looks awfully similar to Daniel Craig. Even with that though Red Grant still delievrs a codl performance that leads to one of the best fight scenes in cinema Overall 8.5/10
Goldfinger - I love this one so much. From a great villain to the DB5 to the iconic imagery and the brilliant henchman in Oddjob. This film gets nearly everything right and I have very few problems with the film as a whole. My only qualm is the barn scene where it appears that Bond may have raped Pussy galore, but that really didn't hinder my enjoyment very much as all. Where my love for the films was truly cemented for the film was for this quote "Did you expect to me to Live?" "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die".Also my favourite character is introduced in this film: Q. The way Desmond Lleweyn plays this character is perfect and I really did not want anyone to replace him. Goldfinger is almsot flawless 9/10
Thunderball - This is where the franchise really went downhill for me. What really annoys me about this film is the first half hour is a complete waste of time that we didn't need. We could have easily started just at scene where Bond is meeting with leaders of the world and M and it still wouldn't affect your understanding of the film. Even after that, so much of the film just feels like wasted potential. The only good part of the film are probably about half the girls, Sean Connery and the one Q scene. The Underwater scenes are just boring and I didn't care. Altough this film does have on e the best title sequences. This will seem harsh to some but honestly this film gets a 4/10
Casino Royale(1967) - Yes I made sure to watch "every" James Bond film (although that wasn't really worth it in the end). What the fuck happened in this film. Honeslty this film is just random scenes together stuck together with a plotline. I remeber David Niven playing some game with Ursula Andress( If I remember correctly). I remember Bond's daughter stuck in a mze like berlin in the cold war. I remember peter sellers going up against Le Chiffre. But the films comes together like a Sandwhich made of Jello and Glue. It's awful. But it's also hilarious to think about. Honestly the story behind the film is more interesting than the actual film. Oh and how lazy is that ending, my God. 3.5/10
You Only live Twice - Alright I knew going in to this some of the films would be dated but I thought that was going to eb about the attitudes towards Women. I did not expect Sean Connery to be badly put in makeup to make him "look Asian". Also the final "Blofeld" reveal is somewhat disappointing, not necessarily bad just somewhat disappointing considering how he was bulit up in From Russia with Love and Thunderball. Although I honeslty didn't have a problem with Connery's performance that much. While it's not great, it wasn't enough to have an impact on my feelings towards the films. Overall not bad. 7/10
On Her Majesty's Secret Service - Alright this one is hard for me. I didn't enjoy the film very much but it's clearly great. Why is it great? Well it gave me Captain America: Civil War which is a film I sometimes don't enjoy but know it is a great film regardless. I was probably just in the wrong mood for this film. As for Lazenby, he's not bad but I think he might have just needed a bit more direction on what to do. Although while it's a gutpunch I love the ending. I'll just give it a 7 now, but I might come back to this one.
Diamonds are Forever - This one is quite weird. From Blofeld to drag to having scenes set in Vegas to Connery weirdly looking too old depsite only being in his 40s. But it can also be a sort of fun weird as well. But then it's not great either. Also I blame this film for the stupid moon landing conspiracy theories. 6.5/10
Live and Let Die - This is a decent start to the Roger Moore Era. Moore feels like Bond but not like Connery which I think was a slight problem with Lazneby trying to be a little too much like Connery. Dr. Kananga is a good villian and Jane Seymour as Solitaire is one the best bond girls. Also Sherriff J.W Pepper is silly but helps us understand how the Roger Moore Era will feel. Overall 7.5/10
The Man with the Golden Gun - "THAT FUCKING SLIDE WHISTLE". Seriously though the slidew whistle over the car flip represents the whole film. Good Idea that were unfortunately done wrong due to horrid execution. However, this makes the film one of the best to enjoy ironically. Scaramnage and Nick Nack are probably the only things done well in the film. Just for ironic enjoyment I'm willing to give this film a 6/10
The Spy Who Loved Me - For the longest time this was my favourite Bond Film. It had my favourite Bond girl in Anya, One the best henchmen in Jaws, Moore at the top of his game, and one the best ending scenes battles in all of Bond. My only problem comes from Stromberg, who's just a bit one note. Overall 9.5/10
Moonraker - I had bad experience watching this one. I was expecting all of it to be set in Space but only the 3rd act actually is. This meant that during the first 2 acts I was just waiting for them to go to space and when they did, I wanted them back on Earth. I really didn't like the space scenes because the blasters reminded me too much of Star Wars. The film itself is probably the most over the top it's ever been and hell, looking back I realise while it was incredibly stupid it was fun seeing a double taking pigeon and the other nonsensical happenings in this film. Honeslty I'll give this a 6.5.
For Your Eyes Only - What happened in this one? This isn't like Casino Royale '67 where it's incredibly confusing but it's more just boring. I really don't remember much at all. I don't remember many of the stunts or any of the bond girls really. Hell, I have no idea who the villain actually was. The only thing I remember is the brilliant opening sequence. 4/10
Octopussy - This one's similar to FYEO for me only stupider. unfortunately though unlike Moonraker where it jump the shark fairly soon to get you ready for the sillier scenes later on, the clown scene at the end I was completely unprepared for looked and just came off as incredibly dumb. Also Octopussy could've been a great villain but no, it's someone else who I didn't care about. 3/10
Never Say Never Again - The first act is weird in that it can't decide if it wants to be classic Bond or a spoof like CR '67. The second act is classic Bond(although they play videogames at some point. What?). I don't remember the 3rd act at all and I got completely lost which really ruined the film for me. 4.5/10
A View To a Kill - This is like TMTWGG for me. The only real good parts are Mayday and Christopher Walken as Zorin. We really should've had Dalton by this point. In fact I think Dalton should've started with For Your Eyes Only. Moore I don't think gives a bad performance but he was clealry too old for the role by this point. As a film it's one of the sillier ones, but at least it wasn't too boring 5/10
The Living Daylights - What a breath of fresh air. It was nice to have a bond film I enjoyed again after some many I didn't like. I love the 3rd act with the both Bond hanging on for his life with the plane and the end fight (although it could give you a seizure if you're epileptic). Timothy Dalton is James Bond. All the other actors were playing a version of James Bond. Dalton is that character personified to a T. The Living Daylights gets a 7/10
Licence to Kill - This was very different. What is easily the darkest bond film (maybe except, Casino Royale '06) is also one of the better bond films. While I enjoyed TLD dalton's bond fits better in this sort of film. I love the plot is literally Bond on a revenge mission rather than just filling out M's orders. Also Q in more than just one scene, is bliss. I Love Q, not only for Desmons Lleweyn, but also because his warmth helps to say "Yes it's dark, but it's still Bond and we can still have fun with it". However the film does almost crumble under all of the different plotlines but unlike NSNA I was still able to get back into the film despite that. Also, It annoyed me that Felix survived the film. It would've been better and more believable if both Felix and his wife had died. LTK gets a 7.5/10
Goldeneye - I don't have a lot to say about this one. Just a great Bond film in it's own right with a great villain and some of the best Bond girls. Although I wasn't big on Brosnan at first though. To me he seemed too generic and didn't really have his own spin to Bond. But he grew on my over time. Besides Goldeneye is still a great film otherwise. 9/10
Tomorrow Never Dies - Again, not a lot to say about this one. Decent Bond flick, that while not as good as Goldeneye is still worth your time and worth checking out at least once. The best part of this film is the villain by far, being a version of Rupert Murdoch(hate that slimy bugger). 7/10
The World is Not Enough - Man I don't have a lot to say about the Brosnan films. I really don't know what to think of this film. The opening scene is great but otherwise I find the film to be another average Bond flick that is a little worse than TND. 6/10
Die Another Day - This one's similar to TMWTGG and AVTAK for me where's it's incrediby stupid but you can have a laugh at it. John Cleese is decent as Q but not as good as desmond lleyweyn. Unlike otehr silly bond films some of the stupid shit can be seen as downright offensive and taking the piss such as the parasailing on waves scene and the end villain literally being Robocop. But the film is somewhat saved by incredibly silly dialogue that is easy to laugh at. Overall 5/10
Casino Royale - First Act is good. The second act is one the best scenes in cinema I have ever seen. I was just invested in that Poker Scene as I was in the Portals scene in Avengers: Endgame if nor more so in the Poker scene. The torture scene is brutal but works perfectly. However once Mr White shows up the films kind of falls apart. This because you could easily assume that Mr White was CIA(Like I did) and just though that was that. While Mathis still had to be dealt with, (whihc QoS messes with for some reason) the film could've just ended with Bond and Vesper. But no we had to have this silly third act which feels like it was only there to kill Vesper. But since the first two acts are still really good and the third act doesn't ruin the movie I'm still willing to look a the film positively. Overall 8/10
Quantum of Solace - I saw this one fairly recently and I still don't remember what happened. I think Greene was the villain and Bond was on the run from MI6 but honeslty that's about it. I will say that in the first half however, Daniel Craig somehow managed to not be Bond and instead come off as top Gear host. The ending really ruins this film however. Well more the gunbarrel itslef. YOU MAKE WAIT THE ENTRIE MOVIE FOR THE GUNBARREL ONLY FOR IT TO THE BE THE WORST GUNBARREL EVER DONE" Ugh. 4.5/10
Skyfall - What a stroke of genius this film was after QoS. One the best Villians in Bond history,Daniel Craig on top of his game, some stunts that are a bit silly but still keep the realims in check and making M the central focus was brilliant . Also while Desmond Lleweyn Will always be my favourite, Ben Whishaw is a great Q. I know this film has some silly plot holes the film is so damn good you just learn to not care about them. I could gush on and on about this film, but this has gone long enough as it has. 10/10 Best Bond film
Spectre - So I'm listening to Bon Jovi's "You give Love a bad Name" and it has the lyric "You Promised me Heaven and gave me Hell". That sums up my feeling towards the films perfectly so I'll just leave at that. 3/10

Did movies survived up to today despite the outcry that TV will kill cinema because its free thats been around since the 50s is because films have been far superior in quality to TV until about the last 15 years? That people were willing paid pricey 1-time tickets despite free entertainment on TV?

Inspired by a post I saw.
In fairness to actors who viewed TV as beneath them ... for a very long while they were totally right. Television has only actually gotten good in the last decade and a half. It's like OP's argument about video games: you can enjoy TV from earlier, but you can't claim that it genuinely competed with books or film. It was just kind of shit across the board.
Indeed despite how mainstream news media esp Newspapers have been crying out loud that television will kill the film medium, movies have survived all the way to today. Despite mainstream news since the 50s stating TV will steal away the movie industry's customer because its free, people still continued to pay pretty expensive prices just to see a movie for a one-time view.
So many theories arise the dominance of television did not completely kill movies and movies still continue to be profitable up until today and one of them is the quote above about how despite being free, TV shows were pretty crap through and through until recent time and the best TV shows could not hold a candle to good or even just subpar movies nevermind Academy Award winning stuff.
I actually am beginning to believe this is the case. I am watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one of the MASTERPIECES of television of the 90s and I also did a Charmed rewatch back in August and am on a Beverly Hills 90210 rewatch as will as just started on Xena. I thought these shows were the best things ever growing up but uuugggh they are so hard to get through today esp since I'm also doing a viewthrough of Audrey Hepburn's completely filmography and other Golden Age Hollywood stars. The differences in quality in everything from acting to writing and music blows away Xena and Buffy. There is simply no comparison. Charmed and 90210 cannot touch even lesser known stuff like Gene Tierney's movies.
The only TV show I'm watching ATM that I can honestly say matches cinema standards is Alias and while its so damn good it legitimately beats your run of the mill Spy films and even the weaker James Bond movies, it cannot hold a cradle to From Russia With Love, GoldenEye, and esp Casino Royale and Skyfall.
So I completely believe the quoted text above and the theory that television was far below other mediums at the time except maybe comics that was why people continued to pay expensive tickets to see movies and while film continues to survive until today.
Your opinion? What arguments can you come up with whether this is true or false?

Not another James Bond update

For anyone who's interested, here's a complete list of all the James Bond references I dropped on my FOREX/Bitcoin scammer.
For anyone who hasn't read it, I told the guy all the cash I had ready to invest was in the form of Bonds- My initial plan was, if he was willing to take possession of the Bonds, I might have actually sent him a package COD, or try to get him to pay the insurance on it- And of course, when he opened the package, there would be a stack of signed pictures of every James Bond, signed very badly- Think "Jim Bond" "Jimmy B" "Jimothy Bond" etc.

But he wasn't taking the bait. So, instead, I told him I had in fact not inherited bearer bonds, but pics of James Bond, and decided I'd run with it from there, dropping Bond hint after Bond hint on him- Here's the list.

My uncle's barrister in South Africa, Alec Trevelyan- 006, played by Sean Bean.

Co-worker fell of a scaffold, scene from Quantum of Solace- Also mentioned he had The Living Daylights knocked out of him

Email from the barrister was labeled For Your Eyes Only

As recipient of my uncle's estate, I was to take care of his eight cats- Octopussy

as well as a few other Nick Nacks- Henchman from Man with the Golden Gun

My uncle spent some time on Her Majesty's Secret Service

He also had some Odd Jobs

Never say never again

From Russia With Love

You Only Live Twice

Diamonds are Forever

Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd- Henchmen in Diamonds are Forever

My financial adviser, Mr. Mendel- He was the Swiss banker in Casino Royale

Dr. No

Mentioned playing cards at a casino with some high rollers, and my drink got spiked

Told him I could grow my wealth even if it was at 0.07 percent rate of return

The World is Not Enough

Mr. Sakata is the name of the actor who played Odd Job, he was asking me to invest in cutting edge hat tech with a killer app

Helicopter ride at the dia de los muertos parade- Opening scene of Specter, it left me feeling Shaken, not Stirred.

A tiny bit of Solace- A Quantum of it to be precise

Referenced Jaws while talking about my dentist friend- Even told him "All of this has something to do with the Bond."

Sky is not failling

No Time to Die, and Die Another Day in the same damn sentence

Invested in the LOTUS- The underwater car from the Spy Who Loved Me

Also invested in Laser Pelvic surgery, from the "I expect you to die" scene

Said he had a golden touch, bit of a stretch but Goldfinger

Goldeneye

Vodka Martinis

Our cash courier, Dominic Greene, the villain from Quantum of Solace- I made sure to ask the scammer to offer the poor guy a glass of water since he dies in the desert, thirsty enough to drink a can of motor oil. (Spoiler alert- Huge spoiler right before this alert.)

Possibly my favorite- Mr. Gould and Mr. Gunn. Gould and Gunn. Golden Gun. Get it? I thought I had peaked with that corny piece of work, but then I also managed to find a way to tell him I was running out of Bond references- And he still didn't catch on.

Finally, as of our last encounter, I managed a Timothy Dalton reference, along with License to Kill. I have not heard back from him yet, it's been a quiet few days. I did report the guy to the CFTC, but I think I will also be sending him the biggest glitter bomb I can find since I have his home address.
