For the most part, Quantum of Solace was not a bad movie.
To be fair, it wasn’t much of a great runner up to casino royale. But overall it was definitely not the best nor the worst James Bond movie. I think casino royale set the bar super high and then this just couldn’t reach it. Although I still think the start and the end of the movie was great besides the villain which kept screaming like a girl lmfao. The middle of the movie was not bad but the action and the ending was very good to be honest. Only thing I’d say is that this movie showed Bond a little too dark and careless as if he completely lost his morals and character in a way. Overall the movie was pretty good. I rewatched this again for the first time in a while and it was not that bad. Same thing with spectre. Spectre wasn’t bad at all it was just execution like sometimes I felt the movie was a little dry and wasn’t as rich in story and dialogue like skyfall.

Why I prefer Quantum of Solace over Skyfall and Spectre
Upon the release of Quantum of Solace in 2008, it was met with mainly mixed to negative reactions from critics and commercial audiences. I understand why since it was a follow-up and direct sequel to Casino Royale, a film met with overwhelmingly positivity and the reboot that took 007 away from the over-the-top, cartoony, CGI heavy Brosnan era that wasn’t resonating with audiences by the time we got Die Another Day. However, I would argue QoS being a direct sequel to Casino Royale is part of it’s strengths. The benefit of being a direct sequel is that it closely matched what Casino Royale set out to do, and that is to ground 007. This is best seen with the villains and their motives - with Le Chiffre, a man working for Q who gambled and lost millions, with Green you also have a man working for Q who is attempting to work out a deal to secure land for its resources. So not only are these villains I could see existing in real world, the latter is a brilliant way of connecting a hot topic in 2008, but also showing that Q benefits from America and Europe’s desperation for oil and Q being one step ahead with their control of a water supply. I would also say the tone of QoS is perfect. I can’t imagine any sequel to Casino Royale being anything other than high octane with where the story is and Bond’s mindset. This makes the few slow downs more impactful, they are somber with Vesper’s presence still lingering in the background - we see this with Bond’s first discussion with M, on the darkened plane with Mathis while Bond sits under the bar light, and Bond’s final discussion with Camille. It also rounds off Bond’s origin story, we have a scene with Bond comforting Camille who are both surrounded by flames, this contrasts with but also compares with Bond comforting Vesper in the shower while they are covered in water - except this time, Bond is not comforting due to a romantic connection, but simply not viewing the woman as disposable. This leads into Skyfall and Spectre. Right off the bat with Skyfall, I have problems with Bond going from a rookie 00 to worn and tired out in the span of a film. We missed out on prime Bond and went straight to veteran Bond. We are then introduced to Silva, a disgruntled former employee of M, who is not only a super hacker but also brilliant inventor coming up with things MI6 haven’t thought of that might help Bond (Face altering dentures anyone?) Now I don’t have an issue with cyber terrorism being in a Bond film or how tech is making Bond slightly obsolete, my issue is how both of these along with Q got pushed out to force in a villain to have some personal connection with M because obviously she can’t just be forced into retirement, we need a tear jerking death scene to end the film on. And it just gets worse in Spectre, taking an organization (Q) that was built up for two films, and just making them a shadow organization within a shadow organization because we need a call back to the books. They couldn’t even just leave it at that, at the heart of Spectre, it’s someone Bond has a personal connection with - so not only did the family Bond grow up with raise someone who would go on to become one of the best agents for MI6, but also one of the greatest criminal masterminds in the world? By the way, how incompetent is MI6 to completely miss this when vetting Bond’s past? What next, Bond unknowingly tries to shag his long lost sister? In less than a decade, the Bond reboot went from realizing it didn’t need to rely on tired tropes, to becoming films that need to shoehorn in references of past films and moving away from the grounded plots we saw in the first two Craig films to now getting into soap opera territory. Quantum of Solace may not be Casino Royale in quality, but it is at least a great extension to what Casino Royale started. I remember being very excited about the Mendes/Logan team up, but after what they’ve done, I really don’t know how Craig era Bond can be salvaged
Remember when Tarantino said he wanted to direct a Bond film?
He wanted to do Casino Royale set in 1964. Since CR has been done since then, can we speculate what he would do instead if given the chance? What if it was a space age movie set in the 60's, like a reboot of Moonraker?
TIL In the mid 2000s, Quentin Tarantino expressed interest in directing Casino Royale, the 2006 film adaptation of Ian Fleming's debut novel and the debut of James Bond. Tarantino said he would have set it in the 1960s and would have only made it with Pierce Brosnan returning as Bond.
The Monte Carlo Casino is one of the most famous casinos in the world. If you are a fan of James Bond, you might recognize this casino as it was the setting for the James Bond movie Casino Royale. Besides gambling on the slot machines, tables and gaming rooms, some come to admire the architecture.
Casino Royale: This is probably the best bond film of the Craig saga, the casino scene takes captures the essence of Bond films, Eva Green plays one of the best Bond girls ever, and Mads Mikkelsen delivers a cunning performance as the film's villain and probably the best villain of the the Craig films. This movie revitalized the Bond franchise with a fresh direction. Quantum of Solace: In my opinion, this is an underrated film of the Bond franchise, I thought is was entertaining and showed the characteristics of 007 in a great way. The opening sequence I thought was just fantastic and in my opinion the best opening sequence of all the Craig Bond films. Some of the action in this one is a bit distracting but the plot and character development I thought was great as a sequel to Casino Royale. I think this film suffers a bit since Casino Royale set the bar pretty high, but is it nontheless a terrific Bond film. Skyfall: This is probably the second best Bond film of the Craig saga. I thought it was a great film, the cinematography is superb, but in my opinion, as a huge fan of this film, I have to be honest and say it is a bit overrated. For me, the Javier Bardem's performance thou great, his character just resembled to me as a joker (TDK) type character. The film seems like it was influenced much in tone by Christopher Nolan TDK trilogy. This is my opinion, and I'm a fan of the film as well as a huge fan of Christopher Nolan and all his work. The film just doesn't feel like a Bond film compared to the two prequels. Spectre: As the most recent Bond film, I would have to say that this film is my favorite of all the Craig Bond films. I thought the opening sequence was stunning and second to Quantum of Solace, the chemistry between this cast is great, with great performances by Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomi Harris, and Rory Kinnear. I think this is Craig's best performance as Bond as well, four movies in and to me he's just is a presence in every scene. The cinematography of this film is magnificent, and I think the best aspect of the film. I thought this film had some great comedic elements, as I thoroughly enjoy and was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film. Dave Bautista's Mr.Hinx is an iconic Bond henchman was was terrifying and cool at the same time, Christoph Waltz's Blofled was cynical and a great performance by the actor despite his character not being well written. Lea Seydoux plays a great Bond girl, and Monica Bellucci is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. Overall I think this films suffers because it's plot isn't great and Blofled felt like another rehash of the Khan situation (Star Trek). But I cannot explain how much I enjoyed this one and that's why it's my favorite.
I have 9 of the 14 Bond novels of my own but I found someone selling the Box set of all them for only 20 bucks. Couldn’t pass up on it. So far I have only read Casino Royale, Moonraker and From Russia with Love. Can’t wait to eventually get to them all.
