FILM DON’T HURT #7: REBOOT. JAMES REBOOT.

by

Sean Connery as James BondSo why are we doing a James Bond-centric episode a year after Skyfall and probably a good two years before the next entry in the series?  Well, mostly because we can.  But also because this is a “Dylan” episode and because I’ve been watching them, in order.  So I got a bug up my ass to talk to Kai about the series.  And so we did.  We go through our histories with the series, overall impressions, what’s next, why it’s so damn popular, and much more.

This and much more coupled with Dylan’s biting analysis and Kai’s wry wit and remarkable humor on an all new episode of Film Don’t Hurt. ENJOY!!!

  • Sorry Dylan, Kai was right for once, Casino Royale is a reboot. While all the previous movies (even Dr No) showed Bond as an established character, Casino Royale took him back to the start, before even the character in the books. A lot of the story comes from the book. The first part of the film is new but from where Bond meets Vesper is basically the broad strokes of the story from the book.

    As for the Timothy Dalton question, his movies are dated but in a lot of ways he is the best Bond, his character is certainly the closest to the one in Fleming’s novels.

    • Oh, the horror, the horror of even hearing someone say Kai is right about something. ;)

      Yeah, I pretty much relinquished the point, though I think my calling it a “reboot sequel” is the closest to the truth.

      I will, however, claim complete ignorance as it pertains to the books.
