No Time For Bond

James Bond has been hit by the Coronavirus, that’s right 007 which was due for release in a month (2nd April) has now been pushed back until November. MGM, Universal and the producers of No Time To Die announced this yesterday. Considering cinemas had just started taking bookings in the past week as well it is truly devastating for them and the abuse they are now going to face from people who were already demanding refunds.

The new release date for the UK is now 12th November 2020 and the US on 25th November 2020 and other worldwide release dates to follow!

Billie Eilish – No Time To Die

Isn’t it nice to wake up to something exclusive from the film world? Well, I hope it’s not just me who feels that way. Here we have Billie Eilish and the next Bond theme “No Time To Die”.

I like the sound of this as it fits with what we expect from a good Bond theme and ballad!

What do you think?

Please, Leave James Bond Alone!

This isn’t the first time we have heard of people wanting James Bond to suddenly become a woman. I personally do not understand why and quite shocked that Pierce Brosnan has been the latest to come out and support Jane Bond as it is being branded about. I seriously do not understand why. Why should a male character be changed to female when we could just have a brand new franchise and character made up? Stop trying to make everything go overboard towards women. Something I have been rather annoyed about in recent years to be honest.

I want good interesting female characters not some gender swapped Bond. I mean come on as much as I enjoy a good Bond film the character is very outdated in terms of mannerisms which is probably how Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt (Bourne and Mission Impossible) have overtaken the action in the films. So why can’t we have a better Bond instead? Don’t just change the gender in an attempt to be politically correct, make the male version better and more relevant to 2019. We don’t hear people wanting Bourne or Hunt to be made female?

James Bond 25 = Shatterhand

The title of the next instalment in the James Bond franchise is named Shatterhand. The film which seems to have been talked about forever without much really happening in terms of filming, well of course expect Danny Boyle leaving the project although he was always a strange choice as he was never going to have creative control.

But we do now have a title for Daniel Craig’s final appearance as 007!

Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With in 2015

I really do try to catch up with films that I have not seen before each year (and yes I still have a massive number of DVDs that have been sitting on my shelf for films I still haven’t watched yet) as I find this often to be such a good break from the films that are released at the cinema, as let’s face it certain times of year we seem to be getting the same thing over and over again and we all know March/April are awful months at the cinema. That was also why I set up the Best Picture Project in order to increase the quality of some of the films I watch. I think some of that will be clear in these 10 films I have picked that I am now pleased I have caught up with!

I always find the best thing about doing this top 10 list is that people are always shocked that I had never seen certain films up until this (or now last year).

I haven’t included any of the Bond films in the list but thought it was very appropriate to make sure that I mentioned that 2015 was the year that I officially caught up and have now seen every single Bond film! Something which was very trying and testing but I managed to complete the challenge of my Bondathon!
