Don't tell me Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton are the same person. Oi Bond, sort it out!
I'm going to use this post to suggest they have some sort of transgender James Bond next time round. I'd like that.
File under "People who other people think are great but I really can't see it".
Alongside Ross Noble.
eddie izzard is truly shite
and each person is 007 - James Bond, while having the rest of their true identity/history erased. Obviously.
Hey - where is guntrip these days?
That he was reprising his role as Bond after being incarcerated by the US due to what he knew about stuff and things.
but I don't know if it was an original premise behind it.
Sylvester McCoy for Bond.
from that generation too.
was fuckin nails
Dr Who openly regenerates (but the Dr who universes science allows for this)
Judge Dredd (does he just get damage repair? or does it go further? how many clones are there? was Rico just a bad new type of clone?...again fits in with the universe, and non explanation does not matter (what is the likelyhood that someone with this much action does not actually die? think of the videogames you play))
James Bond.....there is no 'explanation' within the connery to moore change universe which could have answered this, other than 007 being a title........there is conveniantly little enough back story history to allow the 007 james bond as a role,
then if that were the case then what happens to the 'old bonds' why don't we see them being killed/retired.
which is pretty unusual for comics. I guess he got a bit revitalised around the whole Dead Man/Necropolis bit.
Last time I read any he was getting old and they seemed to be positioning him for retirement and a clone was around that looked like it would take his place. Not sure what happened though.
I seem to remember in the 80's there were limited number of clones - Rico was one, Kraken was one but sure what happened to the others.
how often did he die (in our terms) and was brought back.
How much of his organs are the originals that sort of thing.
I also never read all 2000ads, and there were also different artists, and sometimes there were the occasional stories of dredd from the past and less occassionaly dredd from future. So I couldnt work out if there was already a clone....
I didnt see the storys where you were saying about them getting him ready for retirement.
ALso havnt read the stories back to back in compilations, so my idea might not be that coherent timewise
The timeline can float and the back story can be altered as needed, you might as well ask for consistency in The Simpsons.
it didnt need an explanation.
But Bourne upped the ante, so I suggest that Bond now needs to get better.
The Bond Factory should have hired the director and team that did this
and make them part of the franchise....offer them mega bucks and half of the whole thing.....the bond factory still needs to up its game more.....imagine skyfall production values mixed with this action
this is the same director and team doing music video with fantastic pov punchy shooty fighting
no cgi, just good old fashioned stunt work and superglued go pros
got no nose
lazenby actually says "this never happened to the other feller" near the start
james bond breaking the 4th wall
more than any other Bond movie - that said I don't know if it'd stand up to repeated viewing like some of the cheesy ones do (Octopussy).
I always suspected James Bond was just a fictional character who had many books written about him on different adventures - then when an actor playing him in the film adaptations wanted out/lost popularity with audiences then the studio held auditions to get another actor in to play him?
Whereas if part of Dr Who's initial character was the ability to regenerate then this factor makes it easier for audiences to accept a new face each time?
I don't know - I have a weak knowledge of the Doctor franchise and so might be talking utter Klingon.
Strong work there, Sherlock.
but is still at it in the 60s!!!
It just doesn't make sense to me.
Forsyth, Castle, Grayson, Davidson, Norton.
Which really pisses me off, like when they publically ruled out Harrison Ford being a replicant. No, sorry writers, I don't care what you think/want, this is the only way that makes sense, fuck off.
