I don't have a problem with there being a female 00 agent. I think they made that an option when Moneypenny washed out as an agent. This isn't the SEALs. I think the world of spies arguably suits women as well if not better, and it wasn't a Bourne-level physical intensity until Craig anyway.

That being said, it's articles like this that make me roll my eyes and question the pressure driving these choices compared to compelling storylines, even if I don't want to.

To be blunt, even if giving a woman of color the venerated title sounds great in theory, in execution, it seems like it may be a bald-faced attempt to address the optics of Bond's typically homogeneous casting without actually letting Lynch take over the role of 007.


I mean, the quote isn't wrong. If the storytelling isnt earnest and good, then having a female challenge Bond just for the sake of diversity doesn't really serve any good. It's hollow and condescending to the people really care, and it's degitimizing to the people that dont.

Bottom line, as a Bond super fan, I don't care if it's a woman or not. I just want it to be a good story.

Staff - Now that we have an official title, do you guys mind changing the thread title to...

*** JAMES BOND: NO TIME TO DIE ***

The current thread title really is misleading ever since the release date changed to April 2020.

Thanks!

(You guys mind flagging this to alert staff?)

Oh and here's the official synopsis...

Quote:

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Next potential time frame could be with It: Chapter 2 on September 6. If not then, it'll almost assuredly be September, though.

This was second choice for title. They ran into copyright issues with:

I very much like the title.

After Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre, No Time to Die seems to evoke more the names of Bond films from my youth.

Not that I don't like the names of the previous three Bond movies.....but they just don't have the "Bond-ness" to them, if that makes sense.

Being the OCD freak that I am, I asked staff to change the Top Gun: Maverick thread title twice over the period of like a year, once when we finally had the official title and then once, months later, when they didn't get it right after the first change. Both times I provided the exact thread title, but the second time I'm pretty sure they didn't get it right on purpose and were just messing with me with some weird/random spacing issues, people jokingly gave me sh*t, etc.

Did you happen to notice Staff added a space before and after the colon on the title this time? Thinking they'll be messing with you from now on after reading through the Top Gun thread.

Quantum of Solace was actually the title of one of Fleming's Bond short stories, so that one makes sense in that respect.

For about 5 seconds, I was irate because the tiny little picture on my phone had me thinking they had cast Mark Wahlberg.
