    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    FILM OF THE YEAR

    Bit weird. Skyfall very much felt like the end of the "Bond Begins" trilogy, bringing it back to the same sort of status quo we originally had. To now have it continue into that world feels like no man's land a bit.

    It always felt like a slightly half hearted reboot, especially with the old lady still in it which didn't make much sense. I have no idea where they can go with it now that would be interesting and not just another simple 'Bond saving the world' plot which I couldn't care less about.

    I dont think reboot is the right word for it.

    As Kalel says, it brought the story full circle from rookie to seasoned pro, so to continue on in that vein isnt really needed, unless he becomes something of a spymaster himself.

    I also thought Mendes pretty categorically stated he wouldnt be doing another one. Not that im complaining. I loved Skyfall, so would be happy to see another mendes/craig movie. I just cant imagine the story they are going to tell unless its back to being a standalone, no baggage, balls out bond movie.

    He only said he wouldn't be doing the next Bond film, simply because, at the time, they were looking for a quick production turn around between Skyfall and Bond 24. Which Mendes couldn't accommodate due to other projects he had already signed on to do. Looks like they are willing to wait for Mendes to be ready now rather than moving forward without him.

    There needs to be a consistent villain, or villainous organisation. Craig's last effort before a new double-o is recruited.

    They should start bringing in SPECTRE or whatever the baddies were.

    My thoughts on why the Bioshock franchise needs to cut back the shooting.

    Broccoli and Wilson publicly stated that they would delay Bond 24 until Mendes was available.

    Some cracking visual scenes in Skyfall but thought the film was a bit poor, empty and like old Bond which was boring.

    Suppose sooner or later they have to make one with a big evil base that they invade while Danie Craig has his turtle neck on.

    Somewhere, amongst all the stuff they've tried, there's a cracking Bond film waiting to get out.

    (maybe)

    For those unsure about this news or don't like Skyfall - I urge you to check out Die Another Day

    Well if you're in the minority then let me join you - I thought Skyfall sucked pretty badly (although not as much as Quantum of Solace); Mendes justn't isn't a good Bond director, and the script was pretty damn lousy.

    Casino Royale is possibly my favourite Bond film.

    Have you watched Goldeneye recently? If not, I suggest you dont.

    I loved Skyfall, but I still think Casino Royale is better. Bond's script has never been as good, the opening sequence isn't matched anywhere else.

    Skyfall felt a lot like simple fan-service. Awesome fan-service, but still. I have no idea where it leaves the canon.

    I liked what each Bond did in their era at that time. Judging them against one another is wrong because you have to add on all of the social, political, fashion, and musical influences of the time. And remember that film making techniques were different between then and now.

    For me, Dalton was the best Bond and License To Kill is the best Bond film. Shame that all the legal shenanigans mean he passed on Goldeneye as by the time it was ready, he thought he was too old.

    Goldeneye with Dalton would have been interesting.

    My two cents, I value Goldeneye quite highly but CR just about bests it...
    Skyfall was just boring and made no real sense even by their own internal logic...

    And DAD was possibly the worst of them all...At least Moore's 4th wall breaking, swagger, JW Pepper stuff was meant as comedic in some way...
