We Need A New “Jaws”
Wacky, super powered henchmen were a staple, important part of old Bond movies. They took the pressure off the main villain — he could hang back waiting for his dramatic reveal at the end of the movie while the henchman handled the dirty work. Also the wacky henchmen made the action scenes that make up the bulk of most Bond movies more exciting. Bond wasn’t just fighting random thugs — he was going up against a giant with metal teeth! Or a guy with a cool knife hat! A sci-fi Bond would provide the perfect opportunity for the return of the wacky henchman.
Zero Gravity Sex Scenes
The zero gravity sex scene from Moonraker was pretty hilarious…
…but we can do better. We have to do better. There’s just too many good puns to be made. I mean, it’ll be tough, but I think we can top “I think he’s attempting re-entry”. Something about a rocket I’m thinking.
It’s Time For A Fun Bond Again
Again, don’t get me wrong, I’ve been enjoying the serious Daniel Craig Bond movies, but let’s be real — the Bond franchise hasn’t thrived for 50-years and 23 movies because it’s a gritty realistic take on the world of espionage. People like the series because it’s silly, funny escapism.
Lighten the hell up Daniel.
Sometimes the series has to dial back the goofiness a bit and ground itself again with a more serious entry, but it’s also important to just let Bond have a fun adventure now and then. If Craig doesn’t do at least one goofy Bond he’s in danger of being remembered in the same category as Timothy Dalton — a guy with some good Bond films, who nevertheless was kind of a wet blanket on the series.
What do you folks think? Should Bond blast off again? Heh. Blast off.
