    I just recently watched Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. It brought home to me just how “out of context” the Bond series and Mission Impossible series are, now that the Cold War is over. They just aren’t as relevant as they were when I was a kid.

  2. I am glad that the Bond movies are more realistic in tone while not losing the edge that represents Bond.

  3. I don’t know what it is, but the rebooted James Bond doesn’t do anything for me. I think it has to do with the idea that Bond isn’t going to get hurt (nothing permanent) but the fil maks what us to think otherwise with the darker tone. Like playing a video game there is no depth of concern. It all comes out kinda blah.

    Not that I want to go back to the silly movies. But this just isn’t it. I’m sure there is a way to redo Connery Bond movies with a likable character and serious threats.
