Yeah...no. I can't recall personally ever seeing one Bond film from start to finish. Not really my thing. :dunno:
Just another comment on the absurdity.
Exactly.

The real outrage will eventually come from those involved when this shit show bombs in the theaters.
"CAPTAIN MARVEL IS GONNA BOMB IN THEATERS"

That was a fun one too :laugh2:

I'm mostly messing with y'all... mostly :D

Sean Connery is Bond.

Brosnan was a distant second, and nobody else is in the running. Moore was still playing Simon Templar, Dalton was stiff, and Craig just can't pull off suave - which pretty much defines Bond.

I repeat: Sean Connery IS Bond, period.

So there.

I'll be waiting for the new Bond to pull of typical old Bond lines:

The World is Not Enough, 1999
James Bond: "I was wrong about you." Christmas Jones: "Yeah, how so?" James Bond: "I thought Christmas only comes once a year."

The Man with the Golden Gun, 1974
James Bond: "Miss Anders! I didn't recognize you with your clothes on."

A View to a Kill, 1985
James Bond (to horse trainer assasin): "Well my dear, I take it you spend quite a lot of time in the saddle." Jenny Flex: "Yes, I love an early morning ride." James Bond: "Well, I'm an early riser myself."

Octopussy, 1983
Vijay: "I hear the Island is exclusively for women, no men allowed." James Bond: "Sexual discrimination, I will definitely have to pay it a visit."

License To Kill, 1989
James Bond: "I'll do anything for a woman with a knife."

Never Say Never Again, 1983
Fatima Blush: "Oh, how reckless of me. I made you all wet." James Bond: "Yes, but my martini is still dry. My name is James."

Skyfall, 2012
Eve: "Room service." James Bond: "I didn't order anything, not even you."

From Russia with Love, 1963
Tatiana Romanova: "I think my mouth is too big!" James Bond: "It's just the right size... for me, that is."

For Your Eyes Only, 1981
James Bond: "Now put your clothes back on, and I'll buy you an ice cream."

Casino Royale, 2006
James Bond: "You're not my type." Vesper Lynd: "Why, cause I have half a brain?" James Bond: "No, cause you're single."

Die Another Day, 2002
Verity: "I see you handle your weapon well." James Bond: "I have been known to keep my tip up."

Tomorrow Never Dies, 1997
James Bond: "I always enjoyed learning a new tongue." Moneypenny: "You always were a cunning linguist, James."

Casino Royale, 2006
Vesper Lynd: "If the only thing left of you was your smile and your little finger, you'd still be more of a man than anyone I've ever known." James Bond: "That's because you know what I can do with my little finger..."

Isn't it just a little bit Lazenby on your part not to include all the Bonds.

Hey now, my philosophy is go big or go home. When I predict a movie is going to bomb, there's nothing it can do but be the biggest summer blockbuster ever and make a zillion dollars. :laugh2:

It's absolutely essential to the character of James Bond 007 (insperable, in my book) that he is an Englishman. An ENGLISH MAN (yes, even though they gave him some Scottish, later, to justify Connery). This is just as nuts, and stupid, as remaking Seven Samurai with white women, or Downton Abbey as a tale of black aristocrats around WWI.

Next up: the new green Bond trades in her Aston Martin for a Prius. And doesn't use an icky, dangerous Walther or Beretta.
Ian Fleming was introducted to Sean Connery and did not like the accent at all; afterall Bond is British not Scots. He eventually was won over, most likey by the money he was being paid.

Ian's pick was Roger Moore...

Fine. George made no impression on me at all - but David Niven, Peter Sellers, and Woody Allen were great.
That's right, the very first Casino Royale, I'd forgotten about that one, a parody and I think the reason they didn't have the rights to the book for so many years. BTW of course I was just kidding, just wanted to say "Lazenby" but I'm with you, his performance and the film didn't leave much of an impression on me either. What I always remember is some weird colorful lighting at one point and some voice over talking about chickens. Well there's more, a kilt maybe, and Kojak. There is one cool moment though that I also remember, at the beginning of the film before the "Bond" sequence, he fights the bad guys, and then the chick he saved runs away leaving him standing on the beach alone when he says.

I don’t understand why a new character in the franchise needs to rely on the 007 tag....

Why can’t the producers introduce this new, strong female character and give her her own unique identifier, rather than “remove” the former 007 character (I’m thinking instead of 007 she could be 181 ;)). Taking this approach wouldn’t piss off so many people who get hung up on the traditional character, and if the new character works you have a whole new franchise, and if the character doesn’t work, you haven’t unnecessarily messed around with the established franchise.

Just seems to me that a decision to give a new non white non male character the 007 designation is wholly to piss off people...

Cheers
Because then it wouldn't be the next bond film. If they came out with a "bond like" film no one would notice.
