Topic: Thoughts on which bond film will be referenced most in bond 25?

Obviously the craig era will be referenced as the story's
Said to continue from casino through to S.P.E.C.T.R.E.
I wonder what nods we will get.

Any thoughts?

Does anyone think bond 25 will end where dr no begins??

I hope not, but it definitely seems like Dr. No and Thunderball will be strongly represented. and that's not a bad thing at all!

Maybe that's why in recent years more people have come to love and appreciate OHMSS?

That and the fact people have realised its probably the best shot movie out of the bunch, thank's to ole Peter Hunt.

And thanks to Fleming, John Barry, the scriptwriters etc.
A lot of things fell into place for that film.  ajb007/bond

A reference or two to FYEO would be nice, as it was Moore's 5th Bond film also, and since this is the first Bond film after his death it would be nice for it to receive some love.

I dont mind subtle nods but I'd kind of like to see something stand more on it's own.   To me things in Spectre felt forced to the point where it was as if there was a quota of references per scene they had to meet.

Hell yeah id like the pre titles to have bond working in a delicatessen made of stainless steel.

All joking aside i would expect them to put a "in memory of roger moore" at the end like cubby at the end of tomorrow never dies.

That would start a precedent; they would then have to do the same for Connery, etc, so I think it's unlikely.

Re: Thoughts on which bond film will be referenced most in bond 25?

gawd I hope they don't do any references to the classic films, these moments have dragged me right out of the story in four of the last five films. They only remind me we are watching a younger generation of Brocollis try to replicate their father's legacy which they do not themselves understand.
The only one of the recent films not full of such easter eggs was Casino Royale, which did not need them because it was actually based on Fleming. Which is what I would prefer they do again.



Roger Moore should definitely get some credit in the next film. An isolated dedication at the start of the closing credits, before the list of names begins to scroll. Craig cant do Moore style jokes, so he shouldn't try to put on the clown costume himself.
Why shouldn't it set a precedent? I should hope they would do a big memorial credit for Connery when his time comes, whether there's precedent or not. The present generation of filmmakers owe their jobs to Connery and Moore.

I too think that each Bond actor should get his tribute when the time comes. After all, they all were the quintessence of the franchise at some point.

The name is Walker by the way.

Re: Thoughts on which bond film will be referenced most in bond 25?

I agree. I'm not sure anyone else should get it - perhaps the producers?

16

Re: Thoughts on which bond film will be referenced most in bond 25?

I wouldn’t mind seeing some references to classic Bond films by way of the wardrobe. Beyond that, I don’t want any more self-referential stuff.

17

Re: Thoughts on which bond film will be referenced most in bond 25?

Totally agree on the bond's getting a dedication.
A look back at the wardrobes would be good, David from The bond experience i bet would have an interesting opinion on this.

Aswell as previous bond films, bond movies have often
take inspiration from what is current at the time
Its personally why i think its remained relevant as a franchise and will continue to do so.

Any thoughts on films that might inspire bond 25?

Like hitchcock inspired FRWL

STAR WARS inspired Moonraker

Or Bourne inspired casino & quantum!!

Instead of an isolated dedication, why not do something like TWINE. Remember the painting of  Bernard Lee? They can do something similar for Moore. Bond walking down a hallway filled with paintings. One of the paintings can be of Moore. Maybe for fun they can throw in a Desmond Llewelyn painting and one or two other tributes, Ian Flemings can be in there to.

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

Re: Thoughts on which bond film will be referenced most in bond 25?

Thats brilliant, one thing i love about bond movies
No matter how many times you watch them,
Theres always something else you didn't notice.
Like a Easter egg, a cameo or a piece of music
Paying tribute to another piece of music.
