    TRUE OR FALSE........

    Am watching the BBC Apprentice programme now on BBC 1, and that building City Hall, Lord Sugar issued the task to the 2 finalists looked familiar.

    Now all I ask is - TRUE OR FALSE is that the building that is used for C' s HQ in SPECTRE?

    I'd go with True. ?
    "I've been informed that there ARE a couple of QAnon supporters who are fairly regular posters in AJB."

    Yes it is. The 007 facebook page posted photos during filming from inside the building, and as you can see the inside is identical, it's not changed in anyway for the film.

    To an extent I agree that SP plumbs Bond history rather than adding anything to the history but thank god it sweeps away the Freudian angst of Skyfall- or rather, it's there but we aren't asked to take it seriously. Post SP, I think the franchise is very much at a point where it needs to re-evaluate itself. Whilst Bond going rogue was intriguing in CR and QoS, it's so predictable now that it's almost laughable. At least with Vesper, Bond had a legitimate reason to go rogue. I do think that it is a legitimate time for a new Bond actor; it's simply the nature of the beast that there is change and it would freshen things up. Seeing as Craig's first two films set a serious tone, it feels a bit too jarring for him to be battling with a classically camp Bond villain.

    And in general: slow down! Ease your way in, and read a few of the threads- have a look at some of the fan fiction already here (there are quite a few existing threads, such as http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/47060/james-bond-story-advice/) and chat with others who've been writing their own Bond stories.

    Cheers my man, but since like 19 I have been trying to write a sprit in prised from goldeneye the game but motivated by in her majesty's secret service, and these films are killing bond and the key elements he has charm, sex appeal and gadgets, and in Skyfall the way they take a stab at the exploding pen what the **** was up with that. Yes the return of the Aston Martin is cool but the off the cuff element of the 00 agent has been lost where is the watch knuckle duster and the surprise of bond anymore. Please get in touch I am in the UK if you message and talk on the I would love to exchange ideas.

    In my eyes at the start of a film I want bond talking to a agent he worked with talking about missions between books tracking down blofeld and how spectre grew before bond took it down.
  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 36,890Chief of Staff
    This is not the right thread for the discussion you want to have, so please don't post any more in it. Take a look around the forum, as I said above, and you'll find a more appropriate thread and members who'll maybe exchange ideas.

    Yes. I was grateful that the angst was not Bond's but Oberhauser's.However the downside was that Bond seemed indifferent to Oberhauser, barely seeming to recollect him.

    I guess that's true. However if they want to build Blofeld back up as Bond's main nemesis, Bond can't immediately blow up at him otherwise they'll have nowhere else to go. I'd be surprised if Blofeld wasn't responsible for more things from Bond's past.

    Whether or not Blofeld is responsible for more things from Bond's past, he will surely take credit for everything. I'm sure that in the next film it will be revealed that he killed Bond's parents. They couldn't give away everything in Spectre.

    Although Bond and he didn't meet until after his parents death,I guess Blofeld
    can see into the future and knew this young kid Bond would be a problem for him. :D

    Anything is possible! We don't know for sure when Bond and Oberhauser were first acquainted. Maybe Oberhauser saw newborn Bond in hospital and immediately took a dislike to him. :p

    6.9 on Imdb now. I did tell the fanboys the days of walking in to the baddies lair should be avoided. Insulting modern audiences is not recommended ;)

    The actual insult would be to present all this silly cool nonsense seriously. :))
    Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool.

    I loved that. Classic Bond, all the way. That is the least of the third act's problems.

    I've always thought , it was a very smart move. If you want to get
    Close to someone to kill them. They why not just walk up to them ?

    Earlier in Craig's run, he'd have been knocked out and captured. Now, he strolls in upright. I couldn't help but enjoy that moment.

    That was great character development. Absolutely.

    Craig was at his Bond's best in this film. He convinced as Bond for a change in terms of behavior and manner. (Enough that we can look beyond the 'looks')

    This has probably bubbled up already somewhere and if so, I apologize for repeating someone else.

    I just finished Colonel Sun - a great 007 novel - and noticed the torture scene in Spectre is straight out of the book. Not everything of course but Blofeld's speech...basically word for word.

    There's an acknowledgement in the end credits, thanking the estate of Kingsley Amis.

    I just watched SPECTRE last night, and I see it with new eyes...
    "...the daughter of an assassin; the only one who could understand you..."
    Combined with the little lip furl before Bond says, "Out of bullets."
    This means to me that this is Dan saying goodbye to his Bond. No more an assassin.
    Retired.
    And I'm fine with that. In the end, a great run.
    Unless they want to kill Madeline for a [yet another] revenge flick (and I don't think Craig would be into repeating himself), or an even more OTT story where ONLY BOND can save the day during a world crisis, lured out of retirement (*yawn*) than t-t-t-that's is all, folks!
    As they drove off in the DB5, I truly got misty-eyed. 8-)

    Though the same thing....
    ...I wonder why all the veiled and coded attempts to show that this was Daniel's last Bond?
