Why not let Roger Moore direct? He's directed some episodes of The Saint and The Persuaders and didn't do a bad job. He might be a bit long in the tooth but it's never stopped Clint Eastwood

im not a big fan of bond movies,they always start well,get boring and then pick up for finale

but this one help my attention throughout, the directing for the chinese building fight scene was amazing

only gripe is final battle wasnt really a battle,bond just threw a knife into his back

glad mendes is back on for next one too

Wasn't Skyfall #25 - if We include Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again (1983) in the list.

Hopefully, the next feature will recast the role of Q.... the Skyfall version seemed so pathetic and immature, the actor must have graduated from High School.

We do not included those two films because they are not EON productions movies and Never say Never again is just an insult to all things bond, and its was connery's way of sticking two fingers up to cubby broccolli who basically put his name on the map !!!

...but is still a far better movie than many of the weaker EON produced movies. Much better than Thunderball, Diamonds Are Forever, Moonraker, A View To A Kill and Die Another Day.

You do know Never say never again is a remake of thunderball and you could not be more wrong Thunderball is a classic bond movie.

Diamonds are forever not the best film but it far beats never say never again, Moonraker was of the highest box office hits for bond at one time.
I admit a view to a kill is not a classic and roger should have retired after octopussy.
Die another day is good up the fencing sequence, but then the invisble car and the para gliding sequence from a playstation game lets it down.
However having said on that never say never agains sucks and was beaten at the box office by octopussy.

Of course I know.

and you could not be more wrong Thunderball is a classic bond movie.
...which is quite rightly panned by many people - including fans of the James Bond movies. Far too much underwater footage, and a Largo and a Domino with the screen presence of magnolia paint drying. Claudine Auger and Adolfo Celi were dreadful compared to Kim Basinger and Klaus Maria Brandauer.

Diamonds are forever not the best film but it far beats never say never again,
No it doesn't.

Moonraker was of the highest box office hits for bond at one time.
Based on the high expectations everybody had for it after the brilliance that was The Spy Who Loved Me. It's no surprise that after the abortion that was Moonraker (basically TSWLM repeated, but this time set in space) the takings for the next movie in the series, For Your Eyes Only, were terrible. Even though FYEO is actually a very good movie.

However having said on that never say never agains sucks and was beaten at the box office by octopussy.
Because Octopussy itself is a good movie - though a tad too much Indiana Jones-y rather than Bond-like. Which is why I didn't say that NSNA was better than Octopussy - but it is better than the five weak Bond films I mentioned.

Skyfall is getting its Sky Movies premiere on July 1st, just 8 months after cinema release. Quite surprised as I thought it would show on Sky Movies in September/October time. Mind you I suppose this gives Sky three months to include Skyfall in their Bond collection before they lose the rights at the end of September. So expect a revival of the Bond channel in July which will "now include Skyfall"! By the way is Sky really losing the Bond film rights at the end of September and if so, who will take them then. Will ITV get them back?

I hope not, hope the BBC gets them this time so they can be shown without constant ad breaks and preferably without cuts.

ITV could show a bit of class and show the Bond films without ads. Ok, it's a long shot!
