Vesper Lynd (Literary) James Bond Wiki Fandom

My "Editor" brain and OH2

I do a lot of text editing/continuity checking, and so my brain notices weird things when I'm reading new chapters. Is it bizarre that one of the main things I'm taking away from the recent chapter of Open Heart 2 can be summed up with a note to PB:
Dear Pixelberry,
The cocktail made famous by Ian Fleming's James Bond in Casino Royale is a VESPER. A vespa is a motor scooter.

Does Dr.Swan really betray Bond?

Do you think the trailer is just making it apper like Swan betrayed bond or do you think she really has done it? I liked her in the last film and it would be a shame if she really did. The song sadly is suggestive that this might be the case. Maybe she will turn into the Vespa 2.0 where she loves bond but has a dark secret that will eventually end up killing her as was the case with Eva in Casino Royal.

Did Bond hug a tree in Casino Royale ( the book)

I'm currently reading casino royal and thus far few things confused me (bond calling vespa a bitch BEFORE he even meets her and his casual Sexism are unintentionally funny in a weird way) However there is this sentence in the chapter where bond survives a bomb explosion which states:by that time Bond was standing with his arm round the tree which had saved his live" I know someone might do this to cope with shock yet I just can't picture Bond of all people hugging a tree. I know it's an odd question but it really confused me.

Thanks Mr Craig for ending my Bondathon with style

I have just completed the final stage of a fairly relaxed ‘Bond-athon’ where I have plunged myself into all things 007 - watching, reading about and following Podcasts on about two or three movies a month. And loving every second.
I’ve always considered myself a James Bond fan but this, my second such Bond-blitz, has truly deepened that fandom and proved to me afresh that this is the greatest of all film ‘franchises’ and something that Britain should be truly proud of as an iconic part of our cultural life.
Anyway, here, in my final look at the individual Bonds I have arrived at Daniel Craig who I believe is the true heir of Sean Connery’s crown and the only man who can rival him is the ultimate James Bond.
Craig is a great actor with amazing presence on screen and I think he has truly bought Bond into the 21st-century and ensured the movies have a whole new audience and a whole new mood. The famed humour of the Moore era, for example, may have gone but the spark and wit is still there in a more subtle way and what you get more of now than in previous Bonds is grit, realism, intricate plotting, great characterisation and beautifully shot, intelligent films. They are classy movies and two of them I believe are the ultimate Bond classics too.
So, as with my previous posts, here are my order of the movies played by the actor in the hope it will spark your order and your comments on Craig. Here goes...
1 Skyfall. This is not only my favourite Daniel Craig Bond but it’s my favourite Bond film of the lot. I’ve probably watched it more than any other (which itself says a lot) but re-watching it again as part of this journey I still found so much more to enjoy and I just think it is the ultimate 007 adventure. The storyline is brilliant, the photography, sets and locations are stunning, the villain is ridiculously good, the introduction of the new Q and Moneypenny a total joy and the whole ‘M’ story and finale is unforgettable. If I did have any previous reservations it was I used to feel the attack on the Skyfall house was a bit ‘Home Alone’ in terms of the defences used but on repeat viewing I didn’t feel that at all as I was just so invested in the whole thing. It is as near to perfect as a Bond film can get. It is outstanding.
2 Casino Royale. My second favourite Craig and indeed now my second favourite Bond – just edging over Goldfinger although it is a close run thing. This film brought Bond back with a vengeance and established the new look, new style and new quality that characterises the Craig era. I love the well-crafted plot, the whole Vespa love story (and ultimate betrayal), the dramatic opening, the intensity of the card playing sequence and the photography and feel of the whole film. Criticism? Maybe it is a little bit long and could’ve been edited down a tad but that apart a truly great film.
3 Quantum of Solace. I know not everyone will agree with me on this but I think this is a hugely underrated movie and I never understand why it appears so far down the list of fans’ favourites. I’ve watched this film a lot and I always, always enjoy it because it is fast, energetic, gritty and littered with great moments - the whole Vienna opera house scene for example is simply stunning. The main criticisms people say is that the plot is a bit confused and the villain is weak but I would argue for the defence on both counts and I just know that at the end of every viewing of this film I feel satisfied and entertained. And when it comes down to it, what more could you ask for from a film?
4 Spectre. I have seen this film a lot – I think I saw at the cinema four times for example – but always had a nagging feeling it wasn’t quite as good as it should’ve been and my latest viewing has confirmed that. On the plus side the film looks fantastic – almost every shot could be an iconic image to put on the cover of the DVD - and I simply love the interplay that surrounds ‘team Bond’ with Q, M and Moneypennny all being hugely likeable and entertaining. However, what I think lets it down is that the action scenes and particularly the chases seem to lack a bit of conviction and aren’t dramatic enough and on repeat viewing although I love him as actor I am not sure Christoph Waltz really ‘menaced’ enough as Blofeld. I still do like the movie and it’s probably still in my top half of all the Bond films but it ultimately doesn’t quite fully deliver for me - especially as I enjoy the other three that preceded it so much more.
So, there are my Craig choices – I would now like to hear yours and your views on the man himself. As for me, I will probably take a bit of a break from the films now and I think I’m going to go back to the original novels. I’ve only read a couple over the years so I’m going to try them all in among my normal reading to get a new perspective on 007.
The next Bond film as we know comes out in October next year on the UK so I’m already planning to do a Bond-a-week for the 24 weeks leading up to to get me fully primed for the big release. And, no doubt, my favourites list and opinions will change all over again which is one of the joys of doing this.
In the meantime thanks for reading (if you still are!) and I look forward to hearing your views on these films, Daniel Craig or just Bond in general…

Any [nipple] experts here that could answer this morbid question?

So in Casino Royal, after Vespa dies, Eva Green's nipples become hard... Was this a shooting mistake, or do nipples become hard due to rigor mortis? Sorry for this bizarre question, but my friends and I had a long discussion about this over drinks the other night.

Shaken not Stirred

In one of the blogs on the sidebar i recently saw a post about there being no main nudist protagonists in literature. I'm not having that I thought. Here's Ian Fleming from Casino Royale - Chapter 23 (Tide of Passion).
When he came ashore nearly a mile down the bay the shadows had already engulfed his distant pyjamas but he knew he had time to lie on the hard sand and dry before the tide of dusk reached him. He took off his bathing trunks and looked down at his body. There were only a few traces left of his injuries. He shrugged his shoulders and lay down with his limbs spread out in a star and gazed up at the empty blue sky and thought of Vespa.
Naked , Bond lay and tried to push away the conclusions he read in the sky. He turned his head and looked down the beach and saw that the shadows of the headland were almost reaching him. He stood up and brushed off as much of the sand as he could reach.He reflected that he would have a bathe when he got in and absent-mindedly picked up his trunks and started walking back along the beach. It was only when he reached his pyjama-coat that he realised that he was still naked. Without bothering about the trunks, he slipped on the light coat and walked on to the hotel.
Not the poplarised and sexualised James Bond of the movies. This is a non- salacious piece of text about a guy healing his wounds and contemplating life, love and his future while at one with his natural environment.

[SPECTRE SPOILERS - MAJOR] Can someone confirm / clarify something to me, after seeing Spectre

I have not spoilered individual plot spoilers here as I reckon the gigantic "SPECTRE SPOILERS - MAJOR" in the title is sufficient, but I'm warning ye all here again just in case. You do NOT, I repeat NOT want this absolute beauty of a film spoiled for you and if you really want to enjoy it, GTFO of this thread right now. There's a Casino Royale spoiler here as well, but I'm assuming everyone here has seen that already.
First off, our cinema had an incredibly annoying sound issue yesterday wherein everything was mixed to the centre track (as opposed to dialogue being centred and sound effects / music being panned, as is the standard) and as such some of the dialogue was obscured by the music and sound effects. It only got fixed some way into the film, so I could easily have missed earlier answers to this question.
With that out of the way: There are several hints in Spectre that all of the Craig bond films are actually tied together. We already know that QoS is a direct sequel to Casino Royale, but when Moneypenny calls bond in Spectre, she tells him that all of the villains in the previous three films - including Patrice in Skyfall, even though Skyfall appears to be a stand-alone plot when you're watching it - are linked. Once bond is captured by Oberhauser, he explains that he has orchestrated all of Bond's pain, from the death of Vespa, to the death of M, to everything that's happening to him in Spectre - getting fired, etc.
Does this essentially tie all of the films together? Is this implying that far from being individual villains and plots that Bond just happens to tangle with, the events of Skyfall are intrinsically linked with those of Casino Royale and QoS, such that in tact you can watch all four films back to back and consider them part of one gigantic story arc, wherein all of the seemingly individual conspiracies and villainous schemes are actually part of one gigantic conspiracy to fuck with Bond and bring him down?
Because that would be extraordinarily epic if true, but I can't help wondering if I'm inferring some of this without it actually being clear in the film, just because I love when a series of supposedly standalone films (or songs on an album, indeed) surprisingly turns out to be part of a gigantic story arc instead. :D

James Bond Deeply, and legitimately, falls madly in love with every woman he meets (Minor skyfall spoilers)

Honestly I haven't really seen much outside of the Craig movies, but they do kind of stand on there own so feel free to tell me if this theory is helped or hindered by some of his actions in the earlier movies. One of the key terms associated with bond is womanizer. Bond has a lust for sex and even Ian Flemming himself has said that Bond likes the idea that there is a small amount of rape in every time he beds a new woman.
I disagree with this.
In casino royale bond falls in love with, and is then betrayed by Vespa. I think the idea of this romance was to show why Bond treats women the way he does. He is afraid of being betrayed again so he uses women for his own pleasure before throwing them aside. (This is where the Womanizer moniker comes from)
If you look at how bond treats every bond girl, how sad he is when one turns up dead, every time a girl like Strawberry or Severine is killed Bond relives the death of Vesper and once again feels truly heartbroken.
In Quantum of Solace Olga Kruenkyo's character broke tradition and did not sleep with bond. This is because Bond saw her as a Pier, a woman who did not need to be rescued.
In skyfall Moneypenny also earns this rank. By both resisting his advances and saving his life she shows she is his equal and therefore does not need to be rescued.
TL:DR Bond isn't so much a womanizer so much as looking for a woman who can replace vesper

Alright Reddit, let's sort this out once and for all: who is the best James Bond and why?

My vote is for Daniel Craig if only because he really does look like a beaten-up former SAS officer with upper-class pretensions (and pretensions are clearly all they amount to). Good old Sean Connery always looks cool and self-assured, but I prefer how Craig looks seriously messed up by his experiences. He also looks intense in intense situations. When you watch Casino Royale you can feel that something inside of him is breaking. When Vespa sees him admiring himself vainly in the mirror, we see it as a realistic, somehow forgivable foible. Sean Connery just never offered that range, or animal brutality.
