Are all the films supposed to be in the same universe and all the different Bonds are still playing the same guy? Or is each new character like a re-boot of the overall franchise and all are just randomly based off of different stories from the books?
One of the fan theories is that 007 is just a code name and James Bond can be a different guy. Which would mean each actor is a different person, using that codename.

Exactly. He is supposed to be a younger, more raw version of 007. Not yet refined, and smooth around the edges like the more vet bonds.

I read somewhere that a lot of the bonds occur in the same "universe" and that James Bond is simply a code name and the series is constantly going.

Interesting theory/suggestion.

The only ones I really enjoyed are the ones written in the past 20 years in Film Bond style.

Live and Let Die was kind of okay, I guess.

Agreed, I was hoping that this one would start with him on a beach drinking a martini. I want the Connery era Bond back.


Casino Royale was good, QS was average, nothing special.

Brosnan movies? First two were good. Third was alright. Forth, horrid.

There hasn't been a great Bond movie in a long time.

Love Craig as Bond, and Mendes appears to be on his game. Can't wait.

Agreed. So many of those shots in the teaser are very distinctly Mendes.

I wonder if Javier Bardom will decide whether or not to kill someone with a coin and then kill them with an air compressor

Was just going to say this. In my mind Casino Royale is up there with Goldfinger and From Russia With Love for greatest Bond films of all-time.

This looks incredible. Can't wait to see what Sam Mendes has done with his interpretation of Bond. Craig looks as surly and determined as ever.

The last 30 minutes dragged so much. Good movie still, but I would not call it great.

It was necessary to set up the continuation of the film into Quantum of Solace.

Will definitely watch this film. However, I still hate the fact that they dropped Major Boothroyd.
