    For me, I think it's time. Bring back the gadgets, lots of exotic locations, sexy & memorable Bond girls, move away from the Bourne style cameras and rapid cuts, give us a baddie with some kind of grand design, quirky henchmen and a great title song.

    You know...make it fun!
    This is exactly the thinking that leads down the Garden path too Invisible fucking cars and double taking pigeons!
    +1

    I much prefer Bond with gadgets, impossible'ish cars, top end girls, exotic locations, battles under the water with the addition of sharks, bosses who want to rule all - haha.. Fun!

    Both types of bond have their place. I recently watched one of the Roger Moore's (the one where he walks on crocodiles) and it was really silly and made no sense, but I had a lot of fun. The "mature" ones I enjoy for different reasons.

    I think they could strike the right balance. They don't need to go the Roger Moore route (as hilariously brilliant as that is) but they could start spicing it up a little more in that regard. Use the Connery ones as a model, perhaps, bit with the modern 'Bourne' styling.

    I think the right balance for me was around Goldeneye. I'll need to watch it again to make sure.

    Two of the best for me (and probably a lot of other people) are Goldfinger and The Spy Who Loved Me. They get the balance just right.

    Whilst I've enjoyed the Graig films (Royale is magnificent, QoS seems to depend on what mood I'm in), I would like to see how he does 'playful'. The ending kind of suggests it could go down that route a little bit more. If not, it doesn't really matter.

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

    They're all shit. Really. Sometimes I wonder if there's been some kind of mass brainwashing that I missed out on when it comes to Bond. The new ones are sort of passable in a mindless paint by numbers kind of way, the old ones are an embarrassment. Especially the Pierce Brosnan ones. The only one I can actually remember enjoying was one of the Timothy Dalton ones.

    Flight is a weird one. I found that anything to do with the plane crash investigation was riveting but everything else was like a TV movie of the week. I was pretty bored with a lot of it.

    What's your thoughts on Heroes Reborn? Read my TV musings here.

    Ip man - 7/10 - Nice fight scenes. Probably could have done with a little less drama though. It reminded me a lot of Fist of Legend but more po faced.

    Nine and a four myself. So can't see myself liking Worlds End too much either. The trailers look pretty awful.

    I like Pegg but I just never "got" Spaced or SotD. I thought Hot Fuzz was a TV comedy sketch stretched to movie format.

    World's end looks like more of the same.

    So that means you like Pegg from such roles as Scotty in Star Trek or who can forget unfunny comic relief in Mission impossible?

    To those who dislike Hot Fuzz, how many times have you watched it? It really does get better and better the more you see (although granted, I had it at an 8 on the first viewing anyway).

    Conversely, I've got Shaun down at about a 5, but I've only seen that once or twice, so maybe it deserves another watch...

    I found him affable in interviews and funny in things like Big Train or in cameo's, thought he made a great Scotty.

    Just find those films a bit zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    Simon Pegg is someone I'll always love for Spaced and SOTD, and to a lesser extent Hot Fuzz. But he's not got a particularly broad acting range and so we're seeing more and more films where a) he tries to do something different and fails or b) he sticks to what he knws and we've seen it all before.

    Nick Frost is to my mind the more naturally talented actor. Certainly the better comic actor.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I don't get the lack of love for Hot Fuzz, I thought it was great on first watch, and held up on second and third viewings too.

    I think the issue some people are having is that World's End is repeating the formula for a third time and therefore are retroactively deciding they actually don't like SOTD and Hot Fuzz, even though they did previously. Or am I wrong on that.

    Revisionist (or contrary) scoring isn't cool ;)

    It's something tonal for me. SOTD is a much blacker comedy, and Hot Fuzz is more about sending up bucolic cliches and Midsomer Murders. SOTD is less vainglorious and sharper and nastier as well.

    Shaun Of The Dead is great until they reach the pub towards the end. It all goes downhill pretty quickly then IMO.

    Although the Worlds End is clearly not as funny as the other two I think its main problem is it spends too much time focussing on the characters histories and they are really not that interesting.
    I did like it though, my favourite gag was with the fags on the floor.
    Did anyone find that the fight scenes were a little blurry? Might have been the cinema I was in
