I think Bond has run his course. When he first arrived on the scene, both in literature and film, he was a standout blazing new ground. Now, the spy theme and cool gadgetry can be found in many a summer blockbuster. Bond was also always about the coolness of the actors portraying them, and Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and even Pierce Brosnan all had that suave, smug sureness about themselves which Daniel Craig just didn't convey as well.

I like Craig quiet a bit as Bond. He is undoubtedly a different breed than the others but he's also the only so far that I could buy into pulling off some of the athletics involved in all the Bond Movies. Moore and Connery couldn't throw a punch any better than your average businessman off the street and would probably shit their pants trying to do a pull up let alone some of those high flying gymnastics and fight scenes.

The new Bond films direction and plot seemed choppy and over complicated to me somehow that I can't put my finger on right now but besides that I really enjoyed Craig and both his films.

Why they got away from the gadgets I'll never understand.

This. The last one would have been really good, too, except for the director's ADD. Craig is the best Bond. And Casino Royale is the only Bond movie I've ever liked enough to actually buy. They could do another five or six like it and I'd be happy. Just lose the twitchy director.

And that new Sherlock Holmes movie SUCKED. If they want to make Ironman in the 1800s, just do it - don't piss all over Doyle in the process.

Hollywood is full of morons.

They played the CR storyline to its conclusion and now have carte blanche to do a lot of damn interesting things with the Bond storyline (and Craig was an awesome Bond).

Holmes, OTOH, just sucked. I cannot at all figure out why they felt the need to make another one.

They will make a new Bond eventually. But it sucks because by the time they do, they will have to recast Bond again.

They had a nice thing going with Craig.

They didn't cancel Bond cause they wanted to. MGM is in the financial shitter.

So I guess it was a series of bonehead decisions that led to this one.

See, I feel the exact opposite. The qualities you list are the reasons I didn't like Craig as Bond as much as I did Connery, Moore, and Brosnan. They were more about being smooth and suave, knowing what to say and how to act, impersonating people, sneaking into situations, etc.,. Those are the things Bond was known for--not for being Bruce Lee. Bond was cool 'cause he had charisma in boatloads and could shoot some bad guys and then drink champagne and **** the chick in the boat while waiting to be rescued.

Moore and Brosnan were fops. Bond is a killer first and foremost.

If there is not a Bond movie in 2012 I will be shocked. That is the 50th anniversary of Bond.

While I agree that Craig isn't the suave Bond that the others were I still will take him over all of them.

I've never read the books, but I thought I read somewhere that the books were far more violent and Bond ****ed far fewer chicks. IDK though.

This has to due with MGM's financial woes and nothing more.
