Re: Bond 25 wishlist

I am hoping for a kickass female villain. I think we are due for one. As far as other wishes, I never seem to have many heading into these films. I just wait and see and get excited.

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

My wish list top is: David Arnold returning. I just remember watching the premiere of Spectre and all I was concentrating on was the cut/copy sound track. It was bloody terrible!! I walked out thinking 'How could they!!!!'. I still watch Spectre and know exactly in Skyfall where the track is from. Newman sucks balls for doing that to us. Maybe a cost cutting in production or they just thought the formula worked for Skyfall. Either way it's up there with the CGI in DAD as a top 3 gripe of mine. The other is Lazenby not returning ajb007/frown

David Arnold on CR style duty.
Mission story. No family melodrama. This isn't Corrie.
NO London climax scene. In fact, minimal London. Just like the old days. Aahhh.
One scriptwriter, If Hodge writes the whole script, keep it to him with no other rewrites. Good enough for Boyle, good enough for me.

I liked the soundtrack to Trainspotting. Maybe they could get Brian Eno and Iggy Pop?

Iggy would be great. Counter cultural Icon but old skool. Could tick all the boxes.

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

I wonder who Boyle wants to sing the theme tune? I don't know much about  his taste in music, but I know he is very interested in it. If David Bowie was still alive Boyle would probably want him.
What do you think?

All the copy and pasting from SF in SP does the film no favors. It just makes me think how much better SF is and how I would rather be watching it.

I think he won’t have a say in it.

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

It depends. If the artist is already picked he doesn't have a say, no matter what. But he is probably the most famous Bond director ever (or at least since the 60's) and he is very interested in music. I think his opinion on the artist and theme song will carry some weight.

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

It seems to be an audition process anyhow

E.g. Radiohead, Sam Smith and god knows who else who submitted songs

Being a ‘famous film director’ doesn’t mean diddly as far as picking the theme title artist...but I admire your optimism  ajb007/martini

Have you already forgotten about Mendes? He's an incredibly famous director too. The only other very famous director for Bond would be Lewis Gilbert. Michael Apted and Marc Forster also have their share of fame beyond Bond. Everyone else is probably best-known for Bond these days.

ooh that is good, he pulls off the ballad! and makes his later Duke Ellington cover sound like The Stooges in comparison.

I gotta find that Shaken and Stirred album. I think I'd like it more than most of the recent movies. I know I especially like the funky OHMSS cover with the YOLT mid-section.

I don't think Forster is as famous as Boyle, and certainly not Apted. Maybe Mendes is, and I forgot Lewis Gilbert made Bond movies in the 70's.

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

I want to see a stunt like this in a Bond movie. Benjamin (24) skiis down a glacier and skims on the water for 60 meters!  ajb007/bond

Have you seen AVTAK ?  ajb007/tongue    ajb007/lol

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

Yes, but this was 60 meters and the skier isn't even professional (I think)
Besides, think of all the car jumps you've seen in Bond movies, not to mention action movies in general. Why not ski over water, especially since it's very Bondian?

94

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

even better there is Die Another Day , complete with tsunami

Like skiing behind the plane in LTK?

Could have a bit of Sand Surfing ?

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

But why would Bond surf in the dessert?
Besides, it's just a slower and warmer form of skiing.

Yes, but no.
In short, awsome skiing scenes in action movies are few and far between.

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

Perhaps there's a reason for that, Difficult to film, Location and weather problems etc ?
I enjoy a good ski chase, but there has to be a reason why its not used more.

Re: Bond 25 wishlist

I guess ski scenes are (I guess) often harder to film than car scenes for the reasons you mention. There is also the fact that skiis are much more rarely used than cars in ordinary life. But if the ordinary cinema goer is asked what movies are known for their ski scenes, many will reply "I don't know". But I think no other movie or franchise will be mentioned more than James Bond. This is despite of no ski scenes since TWINE and no really good ones since AVTAK in 1985. It's time.
