Daniel Craig's Bond is more grounded in reality now than ever before. Not completely realistic but a damn sight more serious and gritty,the way Fleming described Bond in the books.
The older Bonds are like comedy panto now. I watched Moon raker two days ago and it was a joke compared to DC's Bond. The old Bonds were very good for their day but now are Extremely tongue in cheek,camp, comedy. I can't take them seriously with all their cheddar! There are the odd exceptions!
If people want old Bond there are twenty Bonds to re watch. That should keep you busy with all the extras. This is a new Bond, for a new era and I for one hope they never go back to the old style. CR,QoS and SF are a million times better than the old films. I take the old films with a pinch of salt now, because I wouldn't be able to watch them if I didn't. They are from a different era and wouldn't work now. DC has firmly established himself as a modern Bond and he's d*** good at it to!
