    2015 - Spectre theme song "Writing's on the Wall" sung by Sam Smith
    2008 - Quantum of Solace theme song "Another Way to Die" by Jack White
    2006 - Casino Royale theme song "You Know My Name" by Chris Cornell

    Can't wait to see what you question you ask next.

    "Why no men living in New York City?"
    "Why moon hit top of tall building?"

    Why are all of the Bond girls female? When are we going to have a gay Bond?

    The next 007 may well be female.

    Why do you think the sex of James Bond movie singers matters? Why does it matter to you?

    It's the end of the world as we know it! Having a gay character be part of the manly James Bond series has DESTROYED the series for me. How could they do that? It's woke cancel culture ruining all that is good with the world today. Where will it end? Will they turn Rock Hudson gay next?

    I kind understand your feelings.

    James Bond is the intrepid spy agent who knows more the the Devil himself.

    From the high pedestal of beign a modern pagan idol, the first movie with Craig as 007 lowered James Bond to just been any regular person. The idea of "humanizing" the character has been the worst mistake ever.

    To me the funeral of James Bond started with Casino Royale, and ended with his burial in No Time to Die.

    I have watched this last movie, and so far I was partially happy with it because I love black women, and the new 007 as the new 007 is a disaster but phyically is very attracted to me... so...

    I expect things will go worst with the future of 007, and perhaps new names will be given, like Janice Bond, Mee-nee Bonding, Charly Bom Bom, and so forth.

    I'm done with the England Secret Intelligence Service.

    Funny, I had the opposite impression, that Daniel Craig was the least human James Bond.

    Aye - he did come across as a bit of a machine. His acting chops weren't up to snuff, in my opinion, and he lacked pretty much any chemistry with most of his leading ladies, Judi Dench aside - and that's because at least she knows how to act! The "love story" with Madeleine Swann just felt false. The closest to an actual chemistry was with Vesper, although even in that it just felt rather contrived.
    Craig's not a bad actor, don't get me wrong, but he's not box-office that draws people to a film because of his name. He's shown he's a good action star, in the same way that Jason Statham is, but at least Statham doesn't take himself too seriously. Craig's also shown he can do the more restrained stuff... I liked him (but not the accent) in Knives Out - also opposite Ana de Armas, who had a film-stealing cameo in No Time To Die. But he doesn't do "human" stuff - or more accurately "relationship" stuff - particularly well, in my view. It always feel flat.

    But hey, he's done his stint. As an oeuvre it was by far the most internally consistent, and clearly a 5-story arc with threads spanning all 5, rather than just a sequence of films connected only by the characters and actors.
    What they do with the next one, who knows, and I think that unless they already had an idea before going into this latest film, they're going to be struggling for a rational way out. That said, they may simply not care, and start the next one as though it's a parallel universe. After all, if it was already all the same one then Bond should rightly be in his 80s or 90s by now? So maybe they'll just say "sod it! Let's just start again. Reboot, and retell all the same stories but this time with an actor that fills the diversity agenda!"

    I think it's fair to say you completely missed the point of my post, and thus do not understand.

    James Bond "suffering" when losing (Casino Royale).



    James Bond suffering when winning (Casino Royale)



    Poker players do not show feelings, and Craig's James Bond is shown as an amateur with some luck. He was like a nerd child challenging the bully.


    Former 007 always knew how to win easy doing his usual tricks. (Live and let die)

    Except that James Bond was the better poker player in all respects and won the hand.
    The guy pouting was not James Bond.
