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…

Time for a New Bond?

#neverCraig #CrExit As it says in the good book you will hear of rumours and rumours of casting rumours.The 007 casting rumour mill has been full speed since our hero Daniel Craig said he rather slash his wrists than play Bond again, and if he did one more outing it would only be for the…

Bond or Death? Craig answers the question nobody asked.

I thought I was far too optimistic with the last headline (re: Calling it Quits), and indeed there was some walk back, along with the expected undying support from EON (poor Babara always a bride at the alter waiting for her 007.). Craig has a mammoth payday from SPECTRE ($24million (£15.66m) for acting, around $6million…

Is Craig Calling it Quits?

goodbye

Call it the curse of OHMSS (Spoiler SPECTRE is essentially a remake of OHMSS). Lazenby walked away from the role before the movie could be released cementing his time as bond before it really began. Craig has made noises that Spectre is his last. He has made similar disgruntled noises in the past after each…

Facelift; “The Whole Truth”?

  A few months ago Daniel Craig ,your favourite actor and ours, without a word of warring dropped out of the small independent production “The Whole Truth” mere days before filming was supposed to start. This understandably upset the everyone involved who’s schedules and perhaps livelihoods were thrown into chaos. In one sense it was…

Bond faces criticism over ‘cynical’ funeral scenes

skyfall-coffins-union-flags

Some understandable criticism for Bond 23’s mimicking of a real life funeral ceremony has erupted. Not to treat this situation too lightly, we do not know how it will appear in the movie, and after this public drubbing it may well never see the light of day. Discuss this in our forum: Bond faces criticism…

Burt Reynolds on his shot at Bond & Criag

Movie icon Burt Reynolds weights in on James Bond. Once considered by the studio & Guy Hamilton as a replacement for Sean Connery. Burt talks to GQ about Cubby Broccoli approaching him for the role, his refusal and later regret. In Bond lore there is another legend about Cubby resisting the studio’s pressure to hire…

Skyfall?

Spyfail? Really? They are going to make it that easy on us….. alrighty then. Today’s press conference confirmed many of the expected casting announcements and locations.
