    I'd prefer a follow up to Spectre ending with Bond killing Blofeld, dismantling Spectre and returning to MI6 ready for his next mission.

    Would love old Blofeld to return , infact I'd love Hinx to return too :)) for a big finish and
    send off for DC -{
    Hinx return would be great, kinda like a modern Jaws -{ getting exciting now isn't it :)) -{

    Only I'd love to see Hinx back with a really bad attitude and a personal reason for giving Bond a
    painful death. -{ I still think his introduction and train fight were two of the highlights in SP.

    I too would like to see Hinx back.
  • superdaddysuperdaddy englandPosts: 865MI6 Agent
    Maybe have Hinx running Spectre (with terror as opposed to brains) while Blofelds languishing in jail!

    Blofeld would have to escape of course, a Spectre Special ops unit could do that. Could make
    an exciting PTS.

    I don't think Hinx is the leader type, he should be more like a non-comical Jaws.

    It would be interesting to see HINX being chewed out by SPECTRE leaders. This would give him a personal reason to eliminate Bond.

    With Blofeld in prison, what is SPECTRE doing? Do the rest of the SPECTRE agents care about SPECTRE's mission to terrorise Bond?

    That spectre special ops team could be led by Kathryn Winnick ! Love the idea of main Bond girl is a real bad bitch to start with :) film has to end with showdown in garden of death!

    Yes Brosnan has been bitter at times and rightfully so. EON stepped up their game considerably with CR concerning production quality. Considerably.

    That is something that Brosnan would have got if he had had his fifth Bond film. So I understand his regrets. It's something that bothers me always getting to hear that Craig is so much better than Brosnan when it's due to much bigger budgets, production quality and even better casting, although that was great enough during the Brosnan era.

    Craig got lucky to come at the right time. He is not better than any of his predecessors he just got better produced films. Not counting scripts of course, all of them have been quite mediocre to downright stupid in parts except CR. IMHO

    Anyhow, it's about Bond 25: With P+W writing again I don't have high hopes, it will be the same old stuff like in TWINE to SP except CR.

    Bond 25 even with a four year gap could, - could -, be the first bookend film that doesn't stand for the low point in an era. The age thing does not favour it though imho.

    I wanted Craig back badly after SPECTRE, in 2017. 2018 the most. I have to accept it's 2019 but I don't have to like it. In fact it's the single most offensive thing EON has ever cast upon us imho.

    Die Another Day budget 140 million usd, casino royale budget 150 million usd
    Sorry for not being on this thread.
    It's how one uses the budget.
    They did a very good job in CR (even if some people think that the casino set wasn't good enough, though I really like it).
    Every penny spent is on-screen.
    I wish I could say that for DAD.

    That probably goes without saying about anything that happens nowadays.
    People can make anything depressing.
    Certain reviewers can even make Octopussy seem depressing.

    running their other various rackets, could have scene similar to TB where Spectre are discussing there money making schemes( love that scene)

    If they insist on keeping Waltz and feel a need to wrap up that storyline, then do it in the PTS like DAF (except leave him dead). Then get on with a atand alone, classic, M sanctioned mission.


    Please ...
  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 17,751MI6 Agent
    Irma Bunt was in the early drafts of SPECTRE.
    I think at least some of the leaders of SPECTRE would try to get Blofeld out of prison, but their atitude to Bond is less personal than Blofeld.

    I think the movie should be about Bond vs Blofeld, but not a word about their childhood!
    Bond should kill Blofeld in the Garden of Death.

    I'd rather see a Fiona Volpe type character.
    It was either that.....or the priesthood

    when they regained control of McClory's intellectual properties, did that include either Fiona Volpe or Fatima Blush?

    The way they introduced half-bro Blofeld as the author of all of Bond's pain was rushed. So I think it would be a fitting end. Craig ending his tenure in with a clasic, straight up spy-on-a -mission film is what I would like to see, without them trying to shoehorn in more emotional baggage. Just my personal preference.

    I'd love to see Craig do a standalone, straight spy adventure like in the old days...but I'm afraid he's simply not destined to be that Bond. He is the 'Backstory Bond' - from the reboot through the revenge on Vesper, an act 3 happening in his childhood home, and Blofeld having been pretzelled into being his step-brother :s ...and so I'm inclined to think that the Blofeld arc will be resolved, one way or another - hopefully with the literary YOLT as a structure (but I'm likely dreaming there :# )...but that also means, probably, another loved one being murdered and avenged, etc...

    If they do the YOLT story, I'm wondering, will Waltz actually even return? They could have someone else play Blofeld and make out he had plastic surgery, which would make sense as he's hiding under the Shatterhand alias.

    Ideally for me Bond 25 will be a film devoid of family backstory and a personal angle. I think there is plenty of drama to be conjured for Bond by the situations and characters he will already face throughout his mission. There's no need to attempt greater poignancy by mining his family past any longer. Skyfall did it and it worked brilliantly. Spectre also did it and it failed in my opinion. Time to move on. I'd also like a From Russia or Thunderball type angle in regards to Blofeld.. I'd like Blofeld in the mix but as a background character, leaving a new villain at the front and centre, with their own villainous plan. And the plan needs to be a good one. Also, make this one sharp and urgent, a quicker run time with tougher, grittier, fastpaced action. No bloated chases. Also give me a good old fashioned Bond girl. One that has a meaningful relationship with Bond, without a true love angle. Basically, I want a Bond film that adheres to the traditional Bond structure, but is more in line with a realistic entry like From Russia or Casino, without the personal element. Let's hope it's a cracker -{
