Topic: Bond 22

I tried to imdb Daniel Craig. It lists in 2008 "Bond 22." Please don't tell me Bond 22 is the title of the movie.

Until a title is decided, Bond films are always referred to as Bond XX, so don't worry.  CR was originally Bond 21, DAD was Bond 20, and so on.

One could argue that Bond 20 is a better title than Die Another Day. ajb007/biggrin

I think the delivery of that line was odd as well, Brosnan tried to drop his voice a few octaves and ended up sunding like he had something caught in his throat. He did the same thing when he was talking to Jinx the first time.

I don't necessarily agree. Yes, Brosnan's voice did drop slightly, but I think his delivery of the line was terrific considering the absollute horror of the line. In fact, I think that given how horrible many of the lines in DAD were, Brosnan handled himself extremely well.

Re: Bond 22

I agree that mostly he was fantastic, I like DAD just because he's so good at being himself, but on those lines he just sounded... weird.

Re: Bond 22

I don't even remember that line, but when did he say that? sometyme towards  the ending?

Re: Bond 22

He said it when he broke into the diamond mine, and when Graves found him. That was right before Miranda turned on him.

Be very happy that you have forgetten. It is surely one of the most traumatic moments in the history of cinema. :'(

Considering that he approved the invisible car, my guess would be no. ajb007/biggrin

Seriously, it was because it was simply ridiculous. I can accept anything in films as long as I am convinced of the reality. So, I can accept that Superman can fly because the films convinced me of the reality. I can also accept that Bond would be able to drive off a mountain on a motor bike and maneuver himself into a falling helicopter because GE convinced me of that reality. But DAD was unable to convince me that an invisible car, even if it is possible in real life, is possible within the confines of the universe that is DAD. Basically, I didn't buy it.
