RANT #3 The “Formula”

Much has been said by Barbara Broccoli (Babs for brevity's sake) about the James Bond “formula” and why it had to go after the “box office failure” of Die Another Day. This is a two part rant. First I defend the “formula” next I discuss how it became so maligned. I find her use of…

RANT # 2  Purvis and Wade the same movie 6 times

I used to think Kevin Mclory’s idea of making Thunderball several different ways in order to create his own Bond franchise was nuts. That is until I realized Purvis and Wade have done just that since TWINE. Let me explain by first laying out their writing template, then explaining how it fits in each film.…

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?

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…
