Yeah, I was happy they brought back Q and Moneypenny in the last one but ... okay, wtf. Q is now just a dweeb hacker with a laptop? Aw drat that. "James Bond" + "gadgets" ... these terms have never been mutually exclusive. It's one of THE things that make Bond Bond. Name `em - gun barrel opening and 007 theme, teaser scene, elaborate opening video with hit music artist of that era, bond girls, cars, GADGETS ... hellooooo.

Don't get me started on Craig`s Bond. It`s a character named "Bond" but it`s not 007. None of the classic Bond elements are there. Just chase and explosions, which you can get in any action movie.

"Q" Branch with Connery was straight up cool. "Q" Branch with Moore was Ingeniously fun. "Q" branch with Brosnan was just plain stupid. I'm not really sure there is a "Q" Branch with Craig.

I'm a life-long Bond fan and while I`d always dissed Lazenby as the worst Bond ... naw, going back and watching his one movie (On Her Majesty`s Secret Service), he was actually quite likeable, a good fighter ... I think his only flaw was he didn`t stand out as the star like the other Bonds. He had the face of a co-star, not THE star. I liked him though. Dalton I also grew to like more as years went by. Craig presently rate last but Skyfall was a huge and important step in the right direction of saving the franchise. [imo]
