I read an interview where Craig and the director of QoS talked about the movie sucking because it was made during the writers strike, so Craig and the director wrote much of it themselves even though they had no idea what they were doing.

The way it was filmed was awful too. I hate action movies where they keep cutting and cutting and cutting during the action scenes. It completely ruins your enjoyment of the film and it's the absolute worst possible way to film an action scene.

2 new (nearly identical though) trailers for Skyfall. These actually show Bardem unlike the first trailer. Very excited for this: http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=93091

Can't wait to see it! I know Daniel Craig's James Bond is different from all of the others, but he has definitely become my favorite. I like his physicality and take on the character!

As for Tarantino directing a Bond film- no thanks! Like somebody else said, aside from like Pulp Fiction (which is highly overrated in itself) and Inglorious Bastards, his movies are not very good and his style is not right for Bond, at all. To be fair, I have not seen Reservoir Dogs, so I can't judge that one.

I love Tarantino more than any other director, which is why I don't want him doing Bond. I prefer Tarantino sticks to his own brand of movie making, and not incorporate it into Bond or try to change his style to fit Bond. I'd much rather have a QT movie and a separate Bond movie to enjoy in a year like this than have a QT and a Bond movie be one and the same.

Yeah, completely agree. The two do not match AT ALL. No sense in trying to force one to mirror the style set by the other. The only director I can think of that would be worse for Bond would be Tim Burton and even that is debatable. I'm talking strictly for the directors that I can think of, which is basically only the popular ones by name.

Nolan would be great for Bond. He used Bond as an inspiration for some of his Batman trilogy.

That would be awesome. But I say keep Craig for now. No reason to move away from Craig until he is creeping up in age, and Bale isn't getting any younger. I'd like to see Bale as a bad guy. That hasn't been a common role for him. His biggest bad guy part that I can think of is American Psycho, but even then he is the primary character.

He would be great for Bond. Good call. And I would definitely like to see Christian Bale as Bond after Daniel Craig, but I believe this will be DC's last Bond movie? Or maybe Hugh Jackman.

Craig signed on for 5 more Bond films after this one (8 total), so unless both sides want to end their contract, Craig will be Bond for the next 10 years. At that point, they will look for a more youthful actor, which would not be Bale or Jackman. Probably somebody we have yet to have heard of or is not big enough yet that we would ever consider that person. I'd say start looking at British actors who are good but only 20 years old, and that is your best bet at predicting the next Bond.
