Returning Director

Of the veteran Bond directors still alive and active, who would you like to see returning to direct at least one more Bond in the future?

Out of the list above I would say 2 time vet Cambell followed by Tamahori, of course that could change when Mendes makes his Bond debut this year we might possibly want him back again? If a couple of oldies would return I vote for John Glen and Hamilton............anyone but Marc Forster !

I'm wary of Tamahori for allowing that travesty of a windsurfing sequence. Plus I felt the sex scene between Bond and Jinx was a bit much for a Bond film- no Bond scenes should make you feel uncomfortable when watching with your parents really IMO. But otherwise I agree

Poor old Glen, Hamilton and Gilbert are either in their 70s or 90s now!

somewhat.............................. I think it was more embarrasing when he was found to be in drag. But hey I'll agree the bad CGI surfing was DAD's lowest point.
Gonna have to try and watch that one with my parents since you mentioned it.

Hey better yet you could do a thread on what Bond films have you watched with you parents and how did they react......


I know but in a way don't you miss those guys

It sounds like Sam Mendes could be one to root for.

That's an interesting thread idea. I think I've occasionally mentioned in the "last Bond movie you watched" thread when my parents have watched with me, but it would good for them to be in one place to see what the slightly-older generation think.

I do miss those directors, though probably Hamilton the least. I think he worked well with Connery, but didn't do so well with establishing Moore as Bond. He tried to distance Moore from Connery by avoiding the black dinner jacket and vodka martini, yet tried to make Moore more violent like Connery which wasn't really in his nature and didn't come off well. If anything, I don't think Moore's Bond was a particularly likeable character in several respects in LALD and TMWTGG- in LALD he cons Solitaire into sleeping with him, while in TMWTGG he slaps Anders around. I thought his line about Scaramanga's use of a bullet against Anders being a shame because the bullets are "very expensive" was particularly harsh and unnecessary. Having said that, I still enjoy those films, it just took Gilbert to bring out Moore's interpretation effectively in TSWLM and Moonraker, while Glen also successfully showed how Moore could combine comedy yet also take his job seriously (kicking Locque's car off the cliff in FYEO and the scene when he confronts Orlov on the train in Octopussy spring to mind). Hamilton also did a brilliant job with DAF and Goldfinger, establishing a lot of attributes we love about the series in the latter, so can't complain too much!

P.S. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating pegsman

I think the series needs another in house director like Glen. Perhaps if Mendes works out he will be back for another one?

A house director, yes, but hopefully more like Young and Hamilton than Glen.
