Maybe it's just me but all I took from that was that Craig feels the "Vesper/Quantum" story is done; however, Bond having to deal with the villainous organization Quantum is not done and they'll still be part of the Bond films. He simply hopes they can go a different direction. Well he can hope, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be that way. Not that it would be a bad thing if it did...I guess. Frankly, I like where the Bond films are going/have been with Craig so I'm sure it'd work no matter which way they go.

If nothing else I like what the writer said below:

...one of the things I’ve loved about both Daniel Craig Bond movies are the way they’re set in the real world. They’re not loaded with sci-fi special effects. While I’d love to see Q enter into this new Bond universe, I just hope they find a real world way of using his technology.

I wonder what that original ending for Quantum Of Solace was about. If it only ran a minute and still had enough of an impact to affect the plot of a sequel, I'm guessing it was meant to end on a cliffhanger.

I think Craig made it pretty clear that Quantum would be back and I'm all for that. SPECTRE had all the best villains (except 006 and Goldfinger) so to have a modern version in place should make for fun times ahead.
Spoiler:
Especially if Mr. White keeps coming back.


As much as I loved the Vesper subplot in Casino Royale, I hope they got it all out of their system with Quantum of Solace.

The next movie REALLY needs to get back to formula.

Movie needs to be at least 2 hours long.

Q and the gadgets need to be introduced. Also Moneypenny.

The Bond girl(s) need to be more the "damsel in distress" rather than someone that can fight along side Bond.

But most importantly, this needs to be moved back to the START of the movie:




I'm hoping that them moving it to the end of Quantum of Solace meant it was the closing of that chapter of Bond.

Oh, and the opening credits sequence needs more naked women silouettes and NO James falling/shooting/running/turning ...

I don't really feel Bond is Bond anymore, so I would certainly agree with most of the list Snowmaker has.

That's my complaint with these new flicks.

They are GREAT action movies, but everything that makes a Bond movie a Bond movie is gone. There is no "trademark" Bond stuff, and that sucks.

I'm all for what makes better films. If you want the above stuff, go rent From Russia With Love.

My only complaint with Quantum of Solace is the terrible job Marc Forster did in the action scenes.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree: If I wanted a great "Bond-less" Bond film, I'd rewatch any of the Bournes.

If we stripped away everything from Bruce Wayne that makes him Batman (like they did with Bond), would it really be a "Batman" movie anymore?

For a second there I read that as Daniel Craig was NOT going to be part of the James Bond franchise anymore. Damn.

Put me down for everything else Snowmaker listed.

Are you saying that the traditional Bond elements in From Russia With Love make it a lesser film?

Precisely.

what the next film desperately needs is a better script, regardless of the running time.

I like my Bond movies time-consuming.

Actually, I find that to be a rather ridiculous statement. Anyone who finds the new Bond movie to be any more "real world" is living in their own private fantasy. There were so many moments in the movie that defied all real world logic that I lost count. Less gadgets does not equal more real world. In the real world, half the stunts of the movie would have landed Bond in the hospital, if not the morgue. Instead, he gets up and walks away with a scratch on his cheek, or a blood stain on his shirt (from someone else's blood, of course).

this recent movie should have been called 'RoboBond' he acted stiff and he rolled with the punches.

I'm on board with your list too, Snowmaker. But what did you think of Casino Royale?

I'll always consider the first five Connery films to be the best but I thought Casino Royale mopped the floor with the rest. Quantum of Solace was trying to be gritty and realistic but the stupidity of the script and orgy of action reminded me a little of Die Another Day, except at the opposite end of the spectrum.

I just meant in general, not in the details.

I'll always remember that the only time I said "Are you fucking kidding me?" during a Bond film was when they introduced the Aston Martin Vanish in Die Another Day.

It took me a second viewing to get used to, and appreciate, it as a Bond movie. That one actually ran a little TOO long and draged in a few parts, but its good.

Me too! I wasn't that impressed at first but with every subsequent viewing it's gotten better and better.

Agree, that is what dissappointed me with QOS, he didn't even mutter Bond, James Bond! It didn't even feel like a Bond movie, I have already seen the Bourne movies bring back BOND!!

I think they can do the gadgets well without making them ridiculous. And Moneypenny absolutely has to be in it.

While Quantum of Solace may not exactly be grounded in reality it's certainly no Moonraker either.
