    I wasn't expecting much but found myself riveted to the villian and that motorcycle ride thru Istanbul was classic Bond. The cast change for the next Bond leaves me hungry but as I understand it Craig won't be back. Is that right?

    You can't assassinate the character of any of modern conservative. You'd have to find where it was buried, dig it up, resurrect it, then kill it. And killing a zombie isn't really assassination, is it?

      “We are currently developing the screenplay and working with our partners. We look forward to developing the script soon and signing a director. We are hoping within the next 3 years it will be released,” MGM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gary Barber said.

      I hated Skyfall. It has a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes so it's me and a couple of other people! Everyone else likes it.

        I thought the writers did about as good as they could creating the sensation of character development in the Bond crew ... but was that even a good idea? I come down on, no, not really. Ultimately you feel cheated because there can't be any character development. Even by the end of this one movie whatever lessons Bond had learned, whatever personal growth he'd experienced had to be erased.
