Mamo #16: The man behind the curtain is licensed and Bonded

The box office numbers are in, and it's.... nothing special. So we take the opportunity to riff on the future of the Bond franchise, such as it has become. Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan..... and Craig? What do we make of this?

Daniel Craig doesn't do it for me at all. He looks more like a Bond villian than an actual Bond. Plus he's blond. What were they thinking. The franchise is now D.O.A. On Orlando Bloom I'm probably one of the few girls that isn't under his spell. He's way too girly looking for my taste. I like men that look like men. He has a body of a 12 year old boy. Also he's a terrible actor. In the Elizaberh Town reviews the critics have been vicious to him.

Hi Ky,

I'm not sold on Daniel Craig either, mostly because I think he's too old. They say he's 37, but honestly, the man looks like he's in his late forties to me. But I suppose, as usual, we'll just have to wait and see.

I might have been a TAD overzealous with my Orlando Bloom endorsement. I was thinking about it later and... well... there must have been something in the coffee.

You know I think that the nnext Bond has a serious problem in this. If they make a movie *I* want to see it will fail beause most other people won't want to see it. If they make a movie a lot of other people want to see a significant portion of the viewers will likely pass on it, enough to dent box office. The whole magic of previous Bond has been that it unites serious movie goers and the occasional dabbler alike, much like Wallace and Gromit or Harry Potter does now. Even if you suspect that it's going to be terrible you go because you are still curious.

The curiosity event horizon has passed for me. If they make me curious it will be at the expense of a vast majority of the movie's potential audience. I don't think they're going ot risk it. At the same time I don't see how the movie can succeed without a hardcore of serious movie goers interested as well.

Expectation weighs heavy on this one. And Mr. Craig could become the double o scapegoat...

well I guess I have the pleasure of commenting on an old topic now knowing the outcome.

I guess daniel has proved everyone wrong by becoming a great choice for bond and modernising the franchise.

I found this blog by accident looking for this getting bonded firm, but glad I did now, feel like im from the future ;-)
