I assure you this franchise goes off a cliff during everyone's tenure at some point. I'd say Craig has remained mostly on the road by comparison.Trash. Bond songs aren't meandering and unsure of themselves. They're bold and brash, full of confidence. This is barely a song, it's just whispering over background lounge music. Sampling two classic bond riffs within the main song really stands out as cheap and unoriginal.
The direction of this franchise really went off a cliff during Craig's tenure. Where's the music? What in the hell is supposed to be memorable about this, at all?
I'll take this please. They looked like they were on track to refresh the franchise properly with Casino Royale, but they've really shit the bed ever sense and shown they have no idea how to do an interesting modern Bond.Honestly it feels as laboured and uninspired as the film will inevitably be.
Set the films back to the '60s where spies were actually useful; have Russia be the big bads as commentary on current events; give the thing the naturalistic look of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy; give Bond an arsenal of lofi gadgets like prosthetic disguises and fake documentation; depict brutal, well-choreographed violence that the Hayes Code prevented in the actual '60s. Finally, sell me a fucking ticket to that.
Ive lost hope. Even Skyfall was just OK. Imma just rewatch Casino.
How many more of these films can revolve around this boring metacommentary on the obselescence of spies in the modern era? Added to the fact that the series is utterly gutless, establishment and formulaic. Broccoli et al wouldn't touch religious fundamentalist terrorism with a ten foot barge pool. It's easy to forget how damn bold it was to make From Russia With Love when they did.
Damn I never thought about how dope a Bjork Bond theme could be
