Bond 24 director shortlist: the yays, the nays and the no ways

Bond 24 director shortlist: the yays, the nays and the no ways
In some of the most exciting news about somebody not doing something ever, it's emerged that Skyfall director Sam Mendes won't be returning to "helm" the next Bond film, even though he never said that he would and often suggested that he wouldn't. Still, that's no reason for us not to pull on our Roger Moore underpants and boot up the Speculatotron 2000, if only so we can say "told you so, ner ner ner-ner-ner" in the unlikely event that we're right. In a Shiznit first, Neil and Ali double-team James Bond to lay down the rules for who should and shouldn't be allowed within megaphoning distance of Bond 24.

It's 2013! A new year of wonderful movies to look forward to, so full of potential and promise. Or we could just point and laugh at last year's films again? Yeah, let's do that.

Blogalongabond #23: Skyfall
Welp, here we are; twelve months of dodgy graphics and suspect gameplay, leading up to this final gamey tribute to the cinematic adventures of James Bond. Along the way we've jumped, ducked and QWOP'd, startled pigeons and murdered monkeys, and lovingly ripped off Canabalt, Doodle Jump, Pilotwings and even SkiFree for Windows 3.1. So what does this final challenge have in store? Let's just say you've got to get angry... you've got to make the Skyfall!

It's always fun to remember how John Logan - writer of Skyfall and the next two Bond movies - got his start in Hollywood. Some kind of... bats.

Sorry Paul, but I couldn't have you at the top of the homepage any longer. (Bérénice Marlohe rocks a red gown at the Skyfall world premiere).

Think they've overdone it on the product placement this time. (IMP).

Christopher Lee 'extremely pissed off' to reprise Bond role on promo duty
"This shit is fucking bullshit," Lee told reporters at the launch of the James Bond Blu-ray boxset. "I'm 90 fucking years old. Enough with this Scaramanga shit already. Let me go back to fucking bed, for fuck's sake."

Review: Skyfall

Skyfall
After the racing start that was Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace felt like an unscheduled pitstop; Craig stuck in the driving seat, sitting frustrated and static while the Bond engineers frantically retooled his vehicle against the clock. I'm happy to report that Skyfall sees Bond well and truly back on track: a turbo-boosted return to form with all cylinders firing. It's not without its problems, but Skyfall walks that fine line between homage and evolution so confidently, it frequently breaks into a strut.

Headline to be read in the style of Alan Partridge. Full Skyfall trailer to come tomorrow, rendering this post even more pointless. Cuh.
