Bond mellows for Skyfall
You know I'm a lifelong Bond fan, - I've got multiple editions of the novels and have been collecting 007 related trinkets since I was a kid. I probably know all the dialogue backwards from most of the movies, but I still haven't seen Quantum of Shit all of the way through, after walking out of the cinema thinking, this is bollocks. I felt like I'd been conned, you see - I paid to see a Bond movie and this certainly wasn't that. I've got the DVD which I bought to complete the set but I've not watched it - the last two Bond movies have made me ambivalent to the series. I'll admit that Casino Royale was a good action movie, but that's all it was, a generic action movie that didn't feel like Bond at all.
"He's much softer and nicer now. It's just different from that (Casino Royale). He was hurt and broken-hearted in Quantum and he feels much better in this movie," Daniel Craig
Ahh well, James Bond will return but we do hope James Bland has been set aside.
