Stylistically, I'd guess that he'd harken back to the look of the 60s films, which would be a massive plus IMO. Plus, in the case of CR, he'd be working from the Fleming novel, so I wouldn't worry about greatest hits, as it would just be a case of a great book being updated with some modern punch and style. At the very least, I think he'd have improved on the CR we got, even if only through hammering the final sections home with the impact they deserved.

That's what Forster said about QOS, and he was right (or half right). But I don't think that's way forward for the series. It should be looking ahead, not back. And if it wants to take notes from the past, I'd rather it were their tight narratives, economy, wit - not just their visual style. TBH, I could do with a few less attempts to ape the Connery era in the Craig films.

good point,to be fair to Tarantino, he made a decent job of "Jackie Brown" which was based on the novel "Rum Punch" by Elmore Leonard, the master of crime fiction, to which he added a garnish of 70s soul cinema stylings

Yeah, but it's all stylings. QOS proved you can't run a Bond film on sheer style alone.

I'd say QoS proved you can't ruin a Bond film on sheer style alone.

Address the overcutting and then, casting aside, you eliminate 90% of my problems with the movie.

On one of those reality pawn shows last night, they showed somebody with a gun built into a cane, which made me flash on the CR novel.

The unmade QT Bond film is, for me, like the Star Trek movie Phil Kaufman was working on in the 70s ... one of the most interesting unrealized movies.

Why not bring up You Only Live Twice? I'd say there is more meat to QOS than there is to You Only Live Twice, yet both hold up well stylistically.

Besides, I think Tarantino will provide a film with both style and substance.

I say yes simply because it'd be a nice risk. Something different. I think the Bond franchise needs that right about now.

I'm not terribly well versed in Tarantino's work, but I loved Inglourious Basterds. I think when Tarantino sets his mind and doing a certain kind of film, he'll do it well.

Dodged a bullet there.
Yes, it's too bad Tracy couldn't do the same.

You're right. '69 was much too soon for sideburns like that.

Reservoir Bond

James Bond: You know what the funniest thing about America is?
Bill Tanner: What?
James Bond: It's the little differences. I mean they got the same stuff over there that they got here, but it's just, just there it's a little different.
Bill Tanner: Example.
James Bond: Alright, well you order a sandwich at a lunch bar, they automatically slap mayonnaise all over the bread, instead of butter
Bill Tanner: You're pulling my leg.
James Bond: No, old man, it's true, if you want butter you have to particularly ask for it, and if you complain about the compulsory mayo they look at you funny!
Bill Tanner: By Jove that’s a bit rum isn't it.
James Bond: That's nothing, you know what the cousins mean when they say they're pissed
Bill Tanner: They've had a skinful?
James Bond: No, it means they're extremely irritated or angry
Bill Tanner: You're having me on.
James Bond: My word of honour, and you know what they think a fanny is in America?
Bill Tanner: The female front bottom?
James Bond: Just the opposite
Bill Tanner: Crazy colonials!

James Bond: Hey kids! How you boys doin'?
[to man sitting on a big throne]
James Bond: Hey, keep chillin'. You know who we are? We're associates of your business partner Emilio Largo. You do remember your business partner don't you? Let me take a wild guess here. You're Ernst Stavro Blofeld, right?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Yeah.
James Bond: I thought so. You remember your business partner Emilio Largo, don't you, Ernst?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Yeah, yeah, I remember him.
James Bond: Good. Looks like me an Felix caught you boys at breakfast. Sorry about that. Whatcha havin'?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Eggs.
James Bond: Eggs! The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast. What kind of eggs?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Sc-scrambled
James Bond: No, no no, which breed? Leghorn? Marans? Kraienkoppe? White Faced Black Spanish? What?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Marans.
James Bond: Marans. That's my favourite. How are they?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: They're good.
James Bond: Mind if I try some of yours? This is yours here, right?
[Picks up a forkful and takes a bite]
James Bond: Mmm-mmmm. That is a tasty egg. Felix, ever have a Marans egg?
[Felix shakes his head]
James Bond: Wanna bite? They're real tasty.
Felix Leiter: Ain't hungry.
James Bond: Well, if you like eggs give 'em a try sometime. I can't usually get 'em myself because my girlfriend's a vegan which pretty much makes me a vegan. But I do love the taste of a good egg. Mm-mm-mm. You know what they call a Royale with Cheese in America?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: No.
James Bond: Tell 'em, Felix.
Felix: A Quarter Pounder with Cheese.
James Bond: A Quarter Pounder with Cheese! You know why they call it that?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Because of the imperial system?
James Bond: Check out the big brain on Ernst Stavro Blofeld! You're a smart motherlover. That's right. The imperial system. What's in this?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Chablis.
James Bond: Chablis, good. You mind if I have some of your tasty beverage to wash this down?
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Go right ahead.
James Bond: Ah, hit the spot!

Brilliant stuff Seve. laugh

Sinking in a Reservoir Bond

Vesper: If all that was left of you was your little finger, you'd still be more of a man than anyone I've ever known.
James Bond: That's because you know what my little finger can do.
Vesper: Shit, you've got your armour back on.
James Bond: I have no armour left. You've stripped it from me. I love you. I'm putting on my cardigan to go and resign by e-mail. All the kids are doing it.

Shit, I can't go any further with this, it's giving me an enormous headache in my eye.

But I'm sure people get the gist of it. They could have done a lot worse than hiring ol' Quentin.

Albert R Broccoli's EON Productions presents Quentin Tarantino's CASINO ROYALE...

The scent and smoke and sweat of a casino are nauseating at three in the morning. Then the soul-erosion produced by high gambling - a compost of greed and fear and nervous tension - becomes unbearable and the senses awake and revolt from it. James Bond suddenly knew that he was tired. He always knew when his body or his mind had had enough and he always acted on the knowledge. This helped him to avoid the sensual bluntness that breeds mistakes.

But not tonight.
