    It's probably gonna be Yann Demange, which isn't a bad choice.

    I choose to ignore Spectre and Quantum of Solace. We'll, at least the second half of Solace.

    I must be one of the few people who actually liked Spectre. I hated Quantum of Solace though. Casino Royale and Skyfall are both great.
    Every Bond actor has at least one movie that I really dislike. Except for Connery.

    Quantum of Solace is easily hateable because it suffered heavily from the writer's strike.

    Not sure how I feel about this. I think Craig has been a fine Bond and has made two of the best films in the series. I felt like Spectre did a good job of fully realizing the character of Bond in the way he had been known to us in the films before Craig. It seemed like a very evolutional take through the course of his four films and even though Spectre was not a great movie, it certainly would have been an acceptable conclusion to Craig's character arc. I would have preferred that they take Bond in a new direction at this point, but I have no problem with Craig returning if they will improve upon the flaws of Spectre and deliver a top notch film for him to go out on.

    I always wished that if Craig ever confirms his last Bond outing, they'd get Martin Campbell to come back for his last one.

    Said no one ever.

    No really, you pick the writer's strike Bond as the best recent Bond movie?? Or were you expecting (hoping) for this kind of response?

    This is historically a forum full of people with wildly eclectic tastes. I don't know why you would assume they say these things to get a rise out of others.

    I so badly want to really like this one. The second half just didn't work for me. I'll give it another rewatch.

    Meh. Didn't mean for it come off like a "HOLY SHIT" reaction, but I was perplexed by the "..." - kind of like: Finish this sentence game".

    I think Quantum is definitely underrated, though somewhat flawed. I enjoy the hell out of it though. Casino Royale is far and away the best Bond film. Spectre is trash. Skyfall is great, but a touch overrated.

    100% this. But I will go as far to say the opening of Spectre was rad.

    Yeah, "trash" is too strong. I think it's actually kind of a good movie until Blofeld shows up. From there it's horrendous. The straining to connect him to the events of the previous Craig films is so poorly done.

    Glad to see Quantum getting some non-hate. It isn't my favorite Craig, but its not nearly as bad as its rep makes it.

    Skyfall/Casino Royale
    Quantum
    Spectre

    The first half of Spectre is decent, they rest of it is a real mess.
