So if the next actor to play the role of James Bond after Craig is Steve Carell we should just accept it and look for the positive points??? So smart cast doesn't really matter??? I'm sorry, but I don't agree with your post. And let's not forget, the character of James Bond has been totally stripped down and reinvented to the point where he doesn't resemble the character we all came to enjoy and love over the years. C'mon, a muscular blond Bond with unruly eyebrows? Personally, I think Craig would have played a much better villain. But hey, I'm not saying everyone has to agree with me; I was stating my opinion. Now that Ithink about it, I would take Steve Carell over Daniel Craig as Bond. LoL.

well we sure are on board with each other about the JFK assassination but I feel the same way about Brosnan that you do about Craig.I thought Brosnan was the worst choice possible for the role of Bond back then.I hated it and got royally pissed when Dalton was let go and Brosnan replaced him.
The only actor to play Bond that I thought came even close to his horrible acting was Lazenby but I let Lazenby slide since he had such a horrible script to work with. Craig is just acting that way cause thats the new direction of the Bond films they are going with.They want a more serious side of him exposed.
I like Craig cause even though he doesnt look the part,he can for sure act.
Brosnan always gave me the impression he was just there cause he HAD to be cause he was getting a paycheck,that he really didnt want to be there.He always sounds wooden in all his movies.at least as Bond and in remington steel.
But thats the way I have always found him to be.I dreaded him becoming Bond like they were talking about back then because I always found his acting to be just horrible when I used to watch Remington Steel having being forced to watch it before MY show came on back then.
when i saw him as Bond,I was like same old Pierce.He STILL cant act.
I do agree with you obviously though that it was a crying shame we had to watch "Dalton" go.
Oh and dont want to put a damper on your day or anything,"especially since your on board with me on JFK and understand how everything is messed up now around the world because of those events."
But better get used to having Craig around for a very long time.He has been signed on for 5 more Bond films.
It's okay, they can keep Craig for all I care. Even if they found an actor I really liked to play Bond, I'd still have a hard time accepting the film since they stripped away all the things I loved about a Bond film. The past three Bond films share no resemblance to any of the other Bond films and I dislike it very much. This whole concept about rebooting a franchise is idiotic, IMO. I'm afraid they'll eventually do the same to Snake Plissken when they get around to remaking those films. It's also the reason why I couldn't stand any of the Batman movies with Christian Bale. They better never even think about rebooting Indy or I'll be on a rampage!

Dont worry they'll give it all a reboot. Plisken, Jones among other classics, hell Robocop and Scarface are getting rebooted. I've never seen a good remake. There're pretty much dressed up to look good for the trailers but theres no soul in the films. I weep for the future.
wow this is another one were not even close on as well.as far as batman goes,The first two Batman movies with Christian Bale are the ONLY Batman movies I can stand.The last one,I did not like.All the others previous to Batman Begins were a disgrace,not loyal to the comicbook at all. when begins came along,I said many times-thank god for chris nolan back then.
Yeah I know there were a few things not entirely accurate in Bales movies as well but unlike the previous films,the positives far outweighed the negatives.Bale was really the one and only true batman.
I say that because all the others except for Clooney,were all good as either good as bruce but terrible as batman,or good as batman,but terrible as Bruce.where Bale excelled in BOTH.But this is the James Bond section so thats a different story for another thread.
