I have a question for you, why won’t Bond die?
And I don’t mean in the sense that he has had more bullets fired at him then the entire Australian artillery stockpile and survived, but more so as far as a movie frachise.
The movie industry is competitive yet for some reason James Bond always finds a way back to our cinema screens across generations. And this is not a third or fourth instalment, this is like the 70th film.
My view on it is because it has the lethal combination of sexy women, violence and action. Of course Bond films in a lot of cases have great story lines but I think you need to stick to the basics.
Just think about it, what other movie series has been known to survive this long.
I remember a video director I worked with who was looking to make a feature film, but he didn’t know what he should do it about.
I told him “As long as it has action, sex, explosions and violence you’ll be fine”.
For your next video, make sure to include one of these elements and you’re guaranteed a winner.
The good news is that the new Bond film sounds like it’s going to be a classic – 100% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Can’t wait to put it in my calendar.
Oh and if you get a chance check out Looper too, saw it yesterday and it was awesome (if you’re into sci-fi).
