    The gun barrel sequence has been leaked. Once again, it's at the end of the film. Why? Who fucking knows?



    I know that with every replacement actor they have for Bond, they tend to speed it up a bit. But this is ridiculous. And his new pose is so artificial. I actually liked the gun barrel they had at the end of Quantum of Solace, and if they slowed it down a bit, it would've been perfect.

    Will they ever have the sequence at the beginning again? They're destroying my childhood like George Lucas destroyed everyone else's.

    I don't know if I can reasonably equate the James Bond gun barrel modifications with the terrible act of rape committed upon my generation by the endless depravities of George Lucas.

    Just saying.

    It will be at the beginning of the next one.

    From what I read, it makes absolute sense given the thematic content.

    And I like this version of the sequence. It's pure vintage Bond.
    He effortlessly channels the suave essence of Connery, finally embracing James Bond.

    The pissed off supercharged Jason Bourne knockoff seems to have washed off of him.

    Here are two of Dalton's unused gun barrels:



    I absolutely love the first one...it's reminiscent to the one Bob Simmons did. It's probably my favorite gun barrel ever and they should've used it.

    The second one is just a weird pose...it's like he's using a Japanese toilet.

    Muse created a Bond song and campaigned for the Skyfall position.



    The producers turned them down cold.
    So...a YouTube'r cut the song to the trailer...



    Who's this Adele again?

    Skyfall. Today. Opening.

    I bought Quantum of Solace BluRay + DVD for $15 this past week because it came with a free movie pass for Skyfall. (Not bad -- $5 for the BluRay, although the movie isn't as good as Casino Royale.)

    Anyway... PSYCHE!

    I'm going to see it today, although it's been on in the UK for a couple of weeks already. Looking forward to it. I liked Casino Royale a lot but I haven't seen Quantum. Would you still recommend it? I might buy the DVD if it's cheap somewhere.

    Quantum was crap, with nearly unintelligible action sequences. And the worst part is that it doesn't have any of the Bond trademarks, up to and including the "Bond, James Bond" line, all because they made the stupid move of getting an art house director who wanted to be different just to show how pretentious he is.

    Anyway, I rewatched Die Another Day yesterday evening. Aside from atrocious blue-screen composites of Bond riding the waves with a parachute and car hood as a surf board, which looked like an animatic, some puns that were more misses than hits (but also some really good ones), and maybe Halle Berry's very existence, and of course, the theme song, I didn't think it was half bad at all.
