    I shall suspend judgement until I've seen Quantum of Solace and Skyfall.

    Got a special place in my heart for Casino Royale.

    Skyfall was a good movie by itself, but as a James Bond movie, it could cause the franchise to fall apart if they make too many. And really, that goes for making too many serious Bond films, too.

    And why hasn't Daniel Craig ever gotten to have sex with the girl at the end (without something tragic happening)?

    Quantum of Solace, mostly because I loved the ending. That was exactly the kind of death that a villain should face.

    I'm sorry, how could you say that about that villain's death? How could getting shot OS possibly compare to the awesome deaths of getting spaced, being dropped down a smoke stack (the only high point of For Your Eyes Only, because the rest was a borefest), getting set on fire and jumping into a petro tank, or getting sucked into a jet engine?

    I don't know what you mean by OS, but you're right, it wasn't about his death itself, it was about the circumstances.

    The interesting part involved a can of engine oil. It made me chuckle, so I approved.

    Those deaths that you listed sounded way too fancy.

    Most importantly, way too fast.


    Priceless.

    OS is screenwriting lingo for "off screen."

    And movies are a visual medium. It's sorta pointless to only talk about a death and not actually show it.

    Daniel Craig's villains have all had pretty lame death sequences.
    I hope he sets the next big bad on fire.
    Or violently thrusts him into a tank full of sharks.

    It's cold-blooded murder FFS--at least make it somewhat dramatic for our viewing pleasure.

    Shit.

    Or Komodo dragons.

    I always had a thing for gravity being a death, although Christopher Walken falling off the Golden Gate Bridge was not the best example of this -- that seemed a shorter fall than Bond in Skyfall, no pun intended, and Bond survived according to the laws of Hollywood physics, which states that if you fall in water, you can't be killed. Walken and that Japanese businessman that fell out of the blimp in AVTAK are presumed to not have been so lucky.

    What would also be nice is if they could get back to the one good Bond girl and one bad Bond girl formula, and give them exotic deaths, too. The bad Bond girl in TWINE had a lame death of getting shot in the heart, and she was quite the bitch, too. I think she deserved a more exotic send-off...like getting eaten by Komodo dragons. Fuck all this symbolism and irony.
