    That blows. I like Craig a lot and I was hoping to see him finding the killer of his lover. I think MGM should sell the Bond franchise and close its doors because it's obvious they can't be in business much longer.

    That sucks, although I have not seen the 2 latest bond movies after Pierce Bronson left.

    Really this was reported months ago when filiming was cancelled indefinitely. Saying the movie is now cancelled indefinitely is the same thing. Either way no filming will be taking place.

    The last two movies came out so quickly (when compared to other Bond films) that they can take a break and it won't hurt the franchise. I bet production starts up again by the end of the year.

    This won't last long.

    MGM have about 3 billion dollars worth of debt and no credit whatsoever, they can't even afford to release that Red Dawn remake despite the fact that its almost finished. The only reason it still exists is because the cocks that own it are trying to get potential buyers to pay more then it is worth, either they give up and sell or they go bankrupt and get liquidated next year when thier debt is due.

    I can personally live with this. I thought Casino Royale was "meh" and Quantum of Solace was boring as crap.

    On the contrary, Casino Royale was really good, in my opinion, anyway, but Quantum of Solace was in fact "meh" but it wasn't terribly boring. It could have been a lot better, but it wasn't boring.

    If you watch them back to back as one long movie then Quantum of Solace becomes much better. Plus the actress playing Strawberry Fields makes it worth watching QoS all by herself.

    Casino Royale on it's own was a great movie. Quantum Of Solace on it's own was a terribly boring movie and felt like a collage of additional scenes that hit the cutting room floor when CR was being made.

    Watching them together would've made for the most boring, overly long, and unwatchable Bond movie, ever.

    QoS is just a terribly weak link.

    I miss Brosnan, and I'm still pissed that Dalton wasn't given a fair shake.

    So is it worth watching QoS? I haven't really liked a Bond movie since the old Sean Connery days but Casino Royale was ok to me.

    Oh a side note, I miss Sean Connery as James Bond......

    As stated, Quantum was good, if watched after CR.

    I just wish MGM would sell the rights off to someone who can take care of the Bond franchise. It's obvious to everyone that MGM is going to close its door soon. And if MGM doesn't sell now, someone will just bid on it afterward. It will continue, just a matter of how long.

    Yesss! Looking forward for his replacement! :) 

    This! When I was a kid and watched "Remmington Steele" I always imagined he could be a cool Bond and many years later he was really Bond. A pity that he was much older than, but anyway, I liked him. They should have kept him. Dalton was good too, but I think he was missing the Gentleman-aspect. I know in the books Bond is very different. Honestly I don't care about that. I want the movie Bond to be like in the Connery and Brosnan movies. And all that gadgets were always nice :)

    I personally watched QoS before CR and I loved it. I hope that production ramps up again with Daniel Craig still in the role. He was a great Bond.
