That one was a movie or two too far for Moore


Moore starred in a total of 7 Bond movies.

That's 7 too many.

8 too many if you count Moonraker as twice the suck of any other Moore movie.

John Mason in The Rock was James Bond. That would make The Rock the last James Bond installment with Connery playing the role.

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

Excellent wrap of the Craig era. A surprising closing song which was an opening song in a previous Bond film.

Watched it after work tonight, I enjoyed it. Shitton of homage to a lot of the past Bond flicks.

Finally watched it streaming on Amazon.  Craig continued his stone cold killer 'Bond'.  Not sure I liked it given the ending.  Makes me wonder where they will go next with the franchise, or if it will just end finally.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

No way it ends.  Probably will be an LGBTWTFBBQ character next.

I could go for this--although a reboot might want a younger actor.  Luther and The Wire were brilliant

I just don't know about Idris Elba as James Bond.  There was a point where I thought he might do well in the role.  Now, as great an actor as he is, I'm afraid he might turn out to be another George Lazenby.
On the other hand, he could turn out to be a great Bond.  It's one of those things where I'd just have to see him in the role to make up my mind.

Finally got around to watching it.  I quite enjoyed all of the Easter Eggs to previous Bond films.  The story was meh.  Rami Malek is a good actor, and was very underused in this film.  He's going to kill the world...why?  Would have been nice to flush out his story a bit.

Female 007?  Didn't bother me a bit, since they didn't try to make her "Jane Bond," but rather the next 00 agent after Bond retired.  And honestly, a black woman in this world can often disappear into a crowd easier than a white man.

The ending?  It's how I imagine a real Bond would be. Willing to sacrifice for the good of others.

Where we go next?  I'll be interested to see.  I'm ignoring the casting rumors, because they are just that.  I wouldn't mind a black Bond if the actor is good.
No, I'm not mtnbkr.  ;)

A black 007?  Sure.  A black (or whatever intersectionality you prefer) James Bond?  Hell  no.  Honestly, wouldn’t that be kind of insulting to black folks?  Instead of developing a character that’s black they just change a white character to a black one.

If it was done because the actor is that good, sure.  With the typical Hollywood decision making, it would probably be some gay black man with little acting experience similar to Doctor Who.

Is the Doctor a gay black man now?  I thought it was still Jodie Whittaker.  (she has done a fine job considering the material she's been given, but the writing has been so bad I quit watching)
