James Bond has turned 60, and to mark the occasion, Amazon Prime Video has made every movie about the globetrotting superspy available on its platform. For those familiar with every single minute of Agent 007’s fictional adventures, the streaming platform still has something to whet their appetite, and that’s the documentary. The sound of 007.
At this point, only Broccolis and a few Aeon Productions insiders know where the franchise will go from here, but what if some of the previous films were remade? Redditors have picked the Bond stories that need to be told again. And that’s either because the original movies weren’t good enough or because they fit better in modern times.
Effective_Pressure24 felt that “the film itself was a reaction Star Wars“Modern tech could make it more Bond-like and less of an attempt to ride the ’70s sci-fi wave. And that could easily be done to stay true to the book, which is more about missile threats than space missions.
True to the Redditor’s words, James Bond forgets himself when he tries to be Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. As a result, there are such huge differences between them Moonraker Books and movies. Keeping the events of the film true to the novel (where most of the events take place in Britain) would feel more realistic because as an MI6 agent, James Bond has no business getting involved in space exploration. Dealing with Nazi sympathizing industrialists seems to be part of his job description.
Dr. No. (1962)
Dr. No One of the most critically acclaimed Bond films but according to some, the remake will help solve some of the production issues. LilWayneFan3 thinks “CGI could do wonders for that film.”
In fact, the film’s cinematography looks ineffective when viewed through a modern lens. Dr. known as Dragon Tank. Noko’s flame-throwing armored vehicle also looks cartoonish in the movie while it is hyped as an incredible machine in the novel. In this way, the story of the movie can be kept as it is by emphasizing good camerawork, CGI, and talented actors.
The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
IM_RR advocates recasting “practically the entire novel” as it stands. And it’s understandable because it’s one of the worst received Bond movies.
However There’s The Man With The Golden Gun One of the deadliest Bond villains, it fails from a storytelling perspective by trying to make him an expert assassin as well as a laser expert. A remake could benefit from keeping Scaramanga as a killing machine and having an actor as skilled as Christopher Lee in the role. After all, the laser craze ended in the 70s and 80s.
Quantum of Solace (2008)
Daniel Craig’s second film hasn’t always been held in high regard. LionelLuiz25 says “It’s pretty forgettable,” so a remake would be great.
It might be too soon to remake a Daniel Craig movie, but with how poorly executed the second movie was, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to tread the same ground years from now. When it is revealed that the film was shot without a script due to the writer’s strike, it becomes clear what needs to be done to make it better.
Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
ChromeFilmsEnt argues for remaking the film “as it was originally intended: a chilling revenge story against Blofeld.” That’s because the events take place after one of the most shocking events in the Bond movies, the drive-by shooting that left Tracy dead.
It’s really strange that in the movie, Bond seems to forget that Blofeld was responsible for the death of his new bride. He easily shifts his attention to diamond smuggling operations as if nothing happened. Ideally, the focus should really be on Agent 007 finding more villains and making him pay. Additionally, this version of Bond must be more reckless and ruthless than usual because he is overwhelmed with grief.
Live and Let Die (1973)
A drug lord who also happens to be a dictator and client of witchcraft? Redditor loveshisbuds criticizes the original plot, saying, “America still doesn’t have to have black exploitation to show the drug problem.”
The Redditor makes a good point that drug issues are handled well in many movies, as well as one of the greatest TV shows of all time, HBO’s Wire. The remake also avoids the inclusion of supernatural elements, which would have come across as strange and ill-advised in a movie about espionage. This time, Baron Samidi must really stay dead.
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)
George Lazenby’s only Bond movie is also one of the best in the franchise. And Redditor Darkknight just feels “it would be great to see a modern version of this.”
In the mystery of his majesty The Service is best known for its iconic scene where Bond’s new bride, Tracy, is killed. It is not a bad thing to play such events in modern times. After all, the franchise seems to be moving away from Bond’s feminizing trend. Therefore, getting him married would be refreshing. And the death of his bride drives him over the edge.
Octopusy One of the worst-received Bond movies ever, and TheGreatZiegfeld thinks the remake should “take out all the horror scenes.”
The Redditor doesn’t mention particularly gruesome scenes, but there are some notable ones. For example, Bond yells at Tarzan during the jungle chase, but it’s pretty funny. He dresses up as a clown on another occasion in an attempt to be funny, something Craig’s Bond would never do. No doubt new Octopusy A film without such scenes would be greatly improved.
Killing Scenes (1985)
One of the new installments is also mentioned. Redditor mec86nyc says: The killing scene It would be an easy movie to remake because “the plot isn’t too far-fetched.”
A plot about a microchip manufacturer trying to destroy Silicon Valley for a monopoly is very applicable in the present day when technology is everything. True to the events of the movie, the microchip was lacking recently, and if such real-life events could be worked into a fictional plot, it would be even more compelling.
Never Say Never Again (1983)
Never say that again It marked Sean Connery’s return to the role after a brief retirement and was the first installment not made by Aeon Productions. In a thread about the remake, Dragonsky noted, “Never say never because it’s not an official Bond movie.”
Because this is a great idea Casino Royale It is also a remake of an unofficial Bond movie. And it went very well. The opportunity to see an older Bond is something that many fans will also love. Additionally, it would be a perfect opportunity to bring back a former Bond actor like Pierce Brosnan or Timothy Dalton.
