Skyfall Director on Bond's Big Comeback

21. November 2012 11:56 by m | 0 Comments

This weeks Entertainment Weekly contains an interview with Sam Mendes which hints at the possibility that he may be interested in directing Bond 24. This would not be the first time a director has returned. John Glen directed five in a row (For Your Eyes OnlyFor Your Eyes Only, OctopussyOctopussy, A View To A KillA View To A Kill, The Living DaylightsThe Living Daylights and Licence To KillLicence To Kill), Martin Campbell directed two - GoldeneyeGoldeneye in 1995 and Casino RoyaleCasino Royale in 2006, Lewis Gilbert directed You Only Live TwiceYou Only Live Twice (1967), The Spy Who Loved MeThe Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and MoonrakerMoonraker (1979), Guy Hamilton directed GoldfingerGoldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are ForeverDiamonds Are Forever (1971), Live And Let DieLive And Let Die (1973) and The Man With The Golden GunThe Man With The Golden Gun (1974) and Terence Young directed Dr. NoDr. No (1962), From Russia With LoveFrom Russia With Love (1963) and ThunderballThunderball (1965). Certainly then, the idea of a director returning to the Bond series is not new, and I would really like to see Sam Mendes return for Bond 24. [More]

Entertainment Weekly reviews Skyfall and gives it an A

4. November 2012 19:07 by m | 0 Comments

Of all the marvelous feats that make SkyfallSkyfall such a thrilling addition to the James Bond movie canon, the greatest may be that the 23rd entry conveys the melancholy of loss, mortality, and future-shock anxiety, while at the same time leaving us plenty of space to enjoy one of the most complexly unhinged villains in Bond history...

MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, the ninth James Bond movie, bears more kinship with Don Adam's Maxwell Smart than it does with lan Fleming's James Bond, except that the comedy timing and lead character are more likeable in GET SMART. That wasn't a blank shot that was just fired, folks. But somebody is off target. Something has gone wrong with the James Bond films, and that something is not the prophecy that so many magazine movie cuties projected in the late 1960's, as each successive James Bond film was released. A general conjecture was made that the character was ancient: a relic left over from an era that had passed; that audiences wouldn't buy the suave, gentleman secret agent mythology any longer.
