Re: Quantum of Solace

Oh yes, I'll bet that was great chilly
For me, the best Bond film has to be Tomorrow Never Dies as the humour is excellent, particularly when he crashes the BMW into the Avis office and of course the bit before where Q is asking him what insurance he might require and Q ends the converation by saying "oh grow up, 007"

The films really aren't the same without the excellent Desmond Llewellyn as Q, I know John Cleese tried but to be honest I always saw visions of Basil Fawlty/the Ministry of Silly Walks sketch when seeing him so it didn't really work.

Re: Quantum of Solace

I think QoS was the first one without Q?
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Bond films, but that really wasn't a Bond film.  As a standalone film it was "ok" but really not what I expected going in.

Re: Quantum of Solace

Desmond Llewellyn  was killed in a car accident a few weeks after The World Is Not Enough was released if I remember correctly and John Cleese appeared in the others up to Casino Royale (the main gadget in the car in CR was the defibrilator but this wasn't introduced in the Q style of 'now pay attention, 007'
I would agree it wasn't your typical Bond and yes I was a bit disappointed on that but I enjoyed it for what it was and it served its piurpose as a closure to CR (perhaps CR should have been an hour longer?)

Bond is hell bent on revenge and so ends up in car chases, shoot outs etc.
Be interesting to see what direction it takes next.
