Out of the Blue

Dark Horizons offers more details on Quantum of Solace (thanks Ant). I am greatly looking forward to this, though I am disturbed by the characterization of Casino Royale as a "change of pace." This is not because it wasn't, as it was a clear departure from the earlier Bond films, but because of the implication that upcoming movies will be different. They even say Bond 22 will be more of a "classical Bond movie. There's a touch of Ken Adam (the production designer behind the giant villain lairs of the early Bond films) and '60s spy movie." This has me recalling it wasn't long after Tim Burton's Batman attempted to return a darker and somewhat more realistic feel to the character that Robin reared his wimpy head, and next thing we were watching Batgirl and Bat-cycles and the whole mess (one more movie and it would have said "POW!" on the screen every time someone got punched). Now I'm worried it's inevitable that we'll soon have Bond spewing puns as he runs around a fortress hidden inside a volcano while a heavily accented voice counts down to the world's imminent destruction.

T minus seven minutes and counting…
