Craig Not Bond Were Right

Post by Capt. Sir Dominic Flandry »

I've been reading the reviews of Craig's last masterpiece and many are saying what anti-Craiger's were saying years ago. So I can now say....Craig Not Bonders were right.

:lol: :007:

I propose that 30 September should be VC Day - Victory over Craig Day. :twisted: :twisted:

I recall feeling like I didn't belong on MI6. The gushing praise of Craig was too much. BJ stood his ground and maybe a couple of others too. This forum received no shortage of criticism and condemnation. That's when I thought it must be worth a visit.

Let's hope the next person to play Bond is someone we can get behind 👍

I was the same on alt.fan.james-bond (anyone else remember Usenet?) It was like a competition to see who could disavow every previous Bond film the most, with the possible exceptions of Dr No, FRWL and OHMSS. If you didn't worship the ground that Craggy walked on, then the pre-programmed response was "you must want a return to invisible cars and double-taking pigeons." It was like being in a cult.

I remember one particular member praising OHMSS as his favourite film (nothing wrong with that) closely followed by Casino Royale 🤔. He dismissed the Moore era entirely. I guess he felt it was the cool thing to do to impress the MI6 clan.

I'm glad I didn't stick around.

The thread I started there was the MOST responded to one with over 3000 responses and they locked it and I left when I got an email from this website asking me to join in the fun here. Sweeney converting to our thought process was the culmination of our efforts. You change the world one mind at a time.

Didn't see that one coming (Sweeney converting). NTTD must be a real turkey.

It is young Skywalker, if one does not drink the Broccoli lemonade being served. It is a stuffed and dried out turkey with no dressing to satisfy its being watched.

Eon tried to outdo themselves in making the ultimate anti-Bond movie and ended up annoying the Craig fans.

If these Craig fans had joined us in our "save Bond" campaign in 2006 instead of telling us we want "double taking pigeons" we could have avoided Craig destroying the franchise.

edit - I see Kristatos mentioned the double taking pigeons jibe too!
