Bonds one liners are usually saved for when he despatches his ENEMIES.Not for innocent women he slept with a few hours earlier.

It was a nervous one-liner, not a cocky one-liner. He was pretending not to give a shit to play it cool.

However in that video Bond is never seen to be cavalier about an innocent womans death.Most of it is Bond bringing out the rough stuff to the villains wummen to get information that he wants and the bits where he slaps the women in the arse, well lots of women like that!



Yes, but he's cavalier for a reason, as has already been pointed out. It distances him from the emotional horror of the situation, and disarms his opponents. Skyfall is for all intents and purposes an 'origins' story, (albeit not in a conventional sense) and that scene goes some way to explain the cavalier attitude towards women, towards danger, towards life itself, that we have witnessed Bond exhibit over the decades.

And I don't think your argument stands in relation to the young lady whom Connery attempts to strangle with her own bra in DAF, which is actually one of the more shocking scenes of violence in any Bond film when you think about it, and was certainly enough to recently raise the film's classification from PG to 12.

MC is a man?.......Is that a fact or an unpopular opinion?
Seriously though, I am surprised at that revelation.

I have the Troll Trinity (trolligy) on block! for their own protection.



I can't see anything in what MC posts would indicate he is a she, he posts some pretty un-ladylike things.

I haven't blocked anyone, the line between 'troll' and 'annoying smartarse' is so often blurred on these forums.

I think we should put you in an EMPIRE charity advert!

" Oro can only enjoy one movie a year, can you give just 2 pounds a month "

My prescription for you is to go and watch Godfather in HD on Netflix/Blu Ray.

Arguably you may have sacrificed your integrity with 'Spider-Man 3 is only good because of the dance number' !

although your right about 'Batman and Superman together in a film is a bad idea'

No, because as long as I am true to myself I have my integrity intact. But maybe 'good' was the wrong word.

I have just realised that, even though I have seen it 3 times, I have no idea what happens in Skyfall. Other than the opening scene and the occasional hammy villain appearance have forgotten the rest of the film.

SPOILERS

Bond gets over his depression after blowing up a Scottish castle that he must have being paying shitloads of cash for since he was an orphan, or at least an adult, he doesn't have to take orders from a woman (that he might have loved or hated, dependant on the whims of whatever script he was reading at the time), everyone forgets about the stolen-files-thing, Moneypenny can't be arsed with being a strong powerful field-agent woman and is now happy to be a secretary, Ralph Feinnes accepts that he can't rely on a big cheque every year from the Harry Potter francise and now switches to doing Bond movies and, finally, Daniel Craig says 'Can I PLEASE have as much fun as Roger Moore did, shagging loads of women and going to exotic locations whilst throwing out crap jokes?'

Your opinion may differ.

It's The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, a la Bond, in one film. See also Iron Man three and Rocky 3


More seriously (and possibly pretentiously) it is a 'reversal story'. Imagine a film with a Bond villain as the main character. Imagine there are hints of him being fucked with by someone, some creeping danger getting closer. Then Bond reveals himself, Despite being captured, Bond has no problem escaping, or seemingly being someone bullets swerve around, and after some shenanigans in the hideout/home of the villain, the hideout blows up.

Skyfall has EXACTLY what Bond does to the villains being done to Bond. Despite some people not really buying Silva's plan/escape/miraculous ability to be in the right place at the right time all the time, it really is no different to what Bond has done, over, and over and over again.

Plus the 'you're just like me and when they don't need you they'll reward your dutiful actions with rejection' element of TDK and the 'hero falls and has to regain his status and 'fucking with the hero to break his spirit' of TDKR.
