Spectre suck donkey balls. It's very sloppily put together...either Mendes and Graig wanted to get out of their contract binding or a victim of the infamous Tom Rothman meddling. Biggest gripe of all the tone is all over the places...it can't decide whether to continue the gritty version from Casino Royale or fall back to the cheesy Roger Moore era of 007. Just scene after scene of exotic location with very uninteresting things in it. Convenient props or events will appear out of thin air to save 007 out of any situation he's in. The dialogue is quite horrid and really can't help but felt like watching a headless chicken routine. Gone are the grounded framework they established from the last few movies.

The saddest part of it all...the James Bond wannabes does it way better than Spectre by a long mile. Melissa McCarthy puts up a more interesting fight scene than the one in the train with Dave Batiusta. biggrin.gif

While insiders say others are still being considered, sources tell Variety that “White Boy Rick” director Yann Demange is the frontrunner to take over the next installment.

Three rumored film directors to helm Bond 25.
Yann Demange - His debut '71 is an excellent action thriller in the mold of Argo. Think he is ideal to bring in that British sensibility of Bond.
David Mackenzie - He blew up with last year's Hell or High Water and currently working on a different iteration of Braveheart's story.
Denis Villenueve - Self explanatory.

These are 3 solid choices of filmmakers that operate in the realm "Oscar potential winner" breed of directors.

Guess Christopher Nolan didn't make it into the shortlist and then again this is not by any chance an official statement from the production company so the list may change in the future.

Man they sidestepped Yann DeMange by going with established name. Mr. Boyle a little hit or miss lately but cautiously optimistic as when he delivers he can knock it out of the park.

Hmmm...eh....quite a snooze fest. Quality wise is no better than Spectre and no way it is comparable to Skyfall. Uninspired villain and "seen that, done that" plotlines made it just very average. The new 007 is a dud! The only enjoyment I had is the short cameo of Ana De Armas which has quirky sensibility of Phoebe Waller Bridge fingerprints all over it. No wonder it didn't do well with the box office.
