In October of last year the following documentary was unleashed to coincide with No, Time To Die’s release. Through all the slavish, sycophantic, undercarriage kissing, Danny Craig subtlety bemoans his good fortune at landing one of the most lucrative and high profile acting gigs in Hollywood. I don’t recall any anthology of Brosnan’s tenure once he had been unceremoniously ash canned. Nether for Dalton, nor Moore the man of all people associated with the francize did as much as he could to be a good steward to the series. Well of course none of those men were the subject of madam Broccoli’s adolescent crush.
Find yourself someone who looks at you the way Babz Broccoli looks at Dan Craig!
The last time they did one of these retrospections, 2012’s Everything Or Nothing a look at the history of the films on their 50th anniversary, when discussing the backlash over Craig’s hiring they gave this website a rather prominent place in the lineup. In fact, that was how I found it. I continue to get quite a chuckle out of the irony every time this site was mentioned in EON puff pieces over the years, even pointing it out on several occasions. This time however when it came time to discuss the dirty naysayers who balked at the great anointed one, this site was conspicuously absent! I guess EON finally got the memo.
At any rate I’m not interested in re-watching and dissecting this turkey, at least not alone, give it a watch (if you can stomach the saccharine) then drop down to the comments and we’ll discuss!
