Brosnan’s Royale?

  After re-reading Casino Royale recently I wondered what if Brosnan had been given Fleming’s final unfilmed property as his swan song, instead of the overly bloated Die Another day. Or at the very least had they put that property in their pocket and waited until Craig had established a few missions under his belt…

Barbara Takes A Stand

    The “woke” militias of the Hollywood Illuminati have been beating the battle drums for a female Bond more and more recently. Even British Prime Minister Theresa May waded in to the fray to demand a lady Bond. Well, I’m happy to say Barbara Broccoli has finally put all this nonsense to bed by…

Cash King Craig

  I’ve seen many a pundit point to the box office take of Craig’s films as evidence of his greatness in the role. Far too many of whom thrust forward the unadjusted figures proclaiming him the “Highest Grossing Bond of all time and therefore the best!” And that statement is true; in that Craig is…

Will James Bond Return?

  From the first time cinematic Bond stepped off the silver screen in Dr. No right up to today the phrase “James Bond Will Return” appeared at the close of the ending credits. However, now thanks to the latest internet rumors that slogan could be in jeopardy. According to the internet Barbara Broccoli, Daniel Craig…

Same as It Ever Was

  And so it begins, or should I say doesn’t. Once more EON has begun rumblings of the great progress they’re making in the lead up to principle photography. Only history has shown what a great pile of bollocks those statements have been. Every film from Quantum of Solace right up through Spectre we were…

#EtTu, Bond?

  Recently the question has been asked how will Bond navigate the new #metoo era, the answer should be, in the same way he navigated every other social change, by being a constant in an ever changing world of upheaval. When the hippies hit the scene in the late sixties did Connery’s Bond don a…

Fans of Mediocrity Rejoice!

  Well its official Daniel Craig has slashed his wrists, at least metaphorically speaking. Craig claims he “changed his mind” concerning his return to Bond. Not true, everyone forgets the entire quote. Craig said, “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists… If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for…

Rotten Craigs or Time For Craig To Make A Jailbreak?!

Despite whatever your feeling for Daniel Craig may be, unless you are one of his’s most rabid fans, you have to feel he’s gone past his expiration date, there is a palpable feeling that most fans have moved on. It would be absolutely foolish for EON to bring him back now. Here are a few…

Daniel Craig is not Bond

  It has been said many times before on this website, but it seems many folks just still don’t seem to get it. We do not hate Daniel Craig and this is not a Daniel Craig “hate site”. Sure we don’t particularly think Craig’s hiring was a good bit of casting, but this site is…

The Spectre Introspection: part 15: “Epilogue”

    I know what you’re thinking, after 14 chapters over several months what more do you have to say about this film? Well plenty, some random thoughts, and some things that I couldn’t really include earlier because it would have upset the flow of the narrative. At times, as I was writing I felt…

The SPECTRE Introspection: part 12: “Never Meet Your Villains”

    An old adage goes, “Never meet your heroes" (as you’ll be disappointed); in this instance the same can be said for villains. The inexplicably luxurious Moroccan desert train pulls away, revealing our two newly minted star crossed lovers in the middle of nowhere. Apparently none of the railway officials or local authorities have any…

The Spectre Introspection: part 6: A Meeting of the Mindless.

  We find Craig winding his way towards the top secret meeting location of the reclusive Spectre organization. Where does this mysterious organization no one has ever heard of meet? A long abandoned subterranean cavern once used by the illuminati to plot the assassinations of Emperors? A secluded villa, far off the beaten path where…
