One of the most important parts of Daniel Craig’s time in the James Bond series is the way has evolved ever-so-slightly from a thug with a licence to kill into a man who knows when not to kill. Another is the way that we’re getting to see bits and pieces of Bond’s life the way they’ve formed the man.
Spectre brings Bond into conflict with the titular group, but even more, with its head, Franz Oberhauser – a man who has been thought dead for decades. To make things even more significant – and personal – the two know each other from when Bond was a boy.
How do we celebrate Thanksgiving? With turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, pumpkin pie and whipped/ice cream and, of course, eight helpings of 007!
Syfy is shaking things up on Thanksgiving weekend with a James Bond Marathon. Beginning at 6am(5C) on Thursday, November 26th, the network kicks things off with the first Bond of all, Dr. No – followed by all four Pierce Brosnan Bonds (GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day).
Black Friday, November 27th brings Daniel Craig’s 007 in Casino Royale and Skyfall, and Saturday, November 28th, the Thanksgiving spy spree concludes with Quantum of Solace. Follow the jump for times.
The final trailer for Spectre has arrived and is as cool as we’ve come to expect from a Bond trailer. It features a key point of debate as well as a wee bit of new footage. Check it out after the jump.
If you didn’t catch Game Three of the NBA Finals last night, there’s a good chance you missed this lovely, tension-packed teaser for James Bond #24, Spectre – and I don’t care what name he’s using, Christoph Waltz’s villain is Blofeld (a stinkweed by any other name…).
Check it out after the jump. Spectre explodes into theaters November 6th.
Skyfall is one of the best Bonds and part of the reason is that not only does Daniel Craig’s Bond continue to reveal new sides to his personality and resources; not only is he given one of the best Bond villains ever in Javier Bardem’s Raoul Silva, but Judi Dench just kills it as M – giving her every bit of the toughness and resiliency that we always expected of her, and an equally unexpected tenderness that we might not have.
The film holds up well on DVD, even on the small screen it’s a terrific experience, but there are barely fifteen minutes of features – most dealing with technical stuff but not in a superficial way.
Where to begin, where to begin? After being in limbo and bankruptcy heck for the last several years there was actually a chance that we would never have another Bond film. Many would say this would have been a tragedy because Daniel Craig was just starting to grow into the role. He had a lauded outing in Casino Royale but a dud in the follow-up Quantum of Solace.
