If you see Craig in his early years before big fame, he was a skinny, pale weed. Maybe is tired of buffing with anabolic steroids for the Bond roles.

If possible, don't let me ruin this with what could easily be perceived as political content.

I like Craig in the toke but he hates it and IIRC this is his last Bond film

ibread every Ian Fleming book onexsummer while I was in High School

to me there is (was) only one Bond and that was Sean Connery

BTW having seen Daniel Craig in Knives Out he appears to have gained weight and actually looked far from buff in that role

I found that Daniel Craig fits the 007 role perfectly following the standard look of XXIth century.
Connery had a tad bit of more in everything but I'm probably suggested by the fact that when he was in the leading role the world was different and I was very young.
Neverthless I'm excited to see the movie, with a special interest in the scenes performed in Matera, that I finally visited past year, a very special place and finally rediscovered also by Italians as me, Who have longly underlooked ti this strange Town.

It will be interesting to see if the franchise survives the obligatory PC shoehorning.
Not likely and is why for most movies today just make me shake my head and I wait for it to be available to watch at home.
Our home screens are plenty big enough to have a theater experience. We have a popcorn machine, lots of subwoofers, its all good.
My hopes got way up for Black Widow, love me some Scar Jo, but I fear it will follow the formula of current film making judging by the preview.

What happened to movies that do one thing and one thing only, entertain us for a couple hours.

Catch the bad guys, hero saves heroine, save the universe, THE END and we go home smiling, simple.

I personally like Craig as Bond.

well if I could reset my thought

I read the entire Ian Fleming James Bond collection one summer "a long time ago in a galaxy far away" :). There were only 12 original books and yes the world was a different place then as were the limitations of film production re the huge special effects. Sean Connery fit that bill totally.I would agree that Daniel Craig is the Bond of the present.

Bond was all about SPECTRE and SMERSH, M, Q, Moneypenny and the cold war era. with espionage and counterespionage

Mike, me too, I like Craig as Bond.

As for Black Widow...it's a comic flick, a Marvel superhero caricature, a cardboard billboard, a cash register Hollywood recipe. It's a CGI affair, a disguise, a rope hanging and eliminated on the pellicule, a Bruce Lee versus Chuck Norris moves look-a-like, a flash Gordon, money money money for Disney from the kids.

You go to cinema school and you hope to become a Hollywood actress to play in Marvel or DC comic flicks ... for the money, not for the art of cinema, not for the talent, not for the hard honest work; for the good looks, the fake action, superheroes versus evils. We had Westerns with John Wayne the cowboy and the Indians, we had War films with the Americans and the Japanese and Germans, now we have Batman and Joker, Suicide Squat and Black Widow. Kids they love it, and the studios oblige by taking their money and offering multiple sequels, in the dozens, more than Terminator more than Predator more than Rambo.

Daniel Craig is for WBF members. :)

My family and I were in Italy on vacation last August. One of the wonderful
areas we visited was the city of Matera in the Pulglia region. They were filming
”No time to die” in this intriguing city. Fascinating to watch the production crew at work.

I just spent about an hour to read the history of Matera and looking @ photographs.
Surely a nice place to visit when in Italy, and to put you in the "No Time To Die" Bond mood ...
Thanks for sharing that fascinating region ...

I guess it's just me, but in this song I dislike her thin, wispy, whispering, lazy voice just as much as I always do.
