    It's a shame - I felt Brosnan was an absolutely brilliant choice for Bond as he had the look, the charm/suavity, and the physicality. I'd loved to have seen him in a more gritty take on the films like Casino Royale. I think that's why Henry Cavill ticks a lot of 007 boxes, in a way he has a lot of the attributes Brosnan had.
    Pierce had his moment. It started really well but diminished every movie. Seems to be a common theme with each Bond.

    We've had gritty now - Spectre was grim.
    If anything I'd prefer Henry Cavill channel his Man From UNCLE and bring back the charm.


    On topic.... I don't expect NTTD to be laugh-a-minute either.

    I watched The World is Not Enough over the weekend and it's still pretty good, 2nd best of Brosnan's run, and a reasonably balance between the serious and the silly (though it also features an annoying turn by Cleese).
    Biggest problem with that is Denise Richards is less believable as a nuclear scientist than an invisible car. And Bond's hairdresser BMW.

    Or in the Bourne movies.

    Maybe the scene of Bond in the chair is considered symbolism for feminism?

    Maybe Le Chiffre frequently bleeding without injury is a symbol of menstruation? :confused:;)

    At this stage, "woke" doesn't even mean anything anymore, just "things wot I don't like", usually revolving a degree of taste for women in stories with personal agency of their own.

    I don't watch Bond expecting deep and meaningful personal arcs, just before folks go "it's just Bond blah blah", but the Craig films at least tried to recognise its female characters didn't need to only idiot blondes acting as trophies with tits. Well, with the glaring exception of Skyfall and Bond's sneak attack in the shower on a sexual abuse victim. Yeesh.

    An interview with Craig popped up, so I guess the revised press junkets are starting up again. The actor reaffirmed his decision this would be his last bond film...
