Dude, no. just... no....

Stop now.

PS. Skyfall was his childhood home, and there is a sign outside referring to both his father and mother. That 100% invalidates anything else you think. All in one movie without any need to read the books.

This isnt just my belief, it is a wide spread thing across the interwebs.
And yes, Skyfall does have the graves of Bond's parents. That still invalidates nothing.

I just dont understand why you are trying to tear down something that gives me more enjoyment out of the movies. It isnt like it hurts you or your enjoyment at all, I just shared something that I like to believe in and then you decided to come in and try and shit on it.

Yet apparently I am the person in the wrong here.

M then said 'It's no wonder you never came back' when looking at the house.

Which says it's his house, those are his parents, and his name, james bond, is his fucking name.

God damn.

Because it's wrong, and you're wrong. If you wish to continue to spout uneducated and incorrect shit, then continue to expect to have people correct you.

That only says that he was the first, which makes sense as when they first came out with the first Craig movie they said it was going to be a prequel type.

I don't know why my belief bothers you so bad, it isn't meant to, the original comment wasn't even directed to you.

It's the fact you keep arguing your point like it's valid, which it isn't, or discounting the facts, which you are, to validate your incorrect and wrong assumption.

That is what bothers me.

Facts? In a fictional movie series loosely based off a fictional book series centered around a secret agent that never existed?

You are taking this way too seriously.

Skyfall isn't, but his backstory is. The name of his parents, how they died, the name of his aunt and uncle he was sent to live with when orphaned at 10...

good job.

I guess you don't understand how canon works, do you.

Hey, Boba Fett was a Sith Lord. That makes my enjoyment of the movies even better!

Hey! Greedo Shot First!

Hey! James T. Kirk is just a name for all the captains of the Enterprise. It's not the same guy!

Say any of those in public, expect backlash.

You are just back to refusing to admit error.

I subscribe to the theory that "James Bond" is a designator for the top agent in the field, just like 007 is a designator.
Thus, all Bonds are not the same as any other

o.0

The books are quite clear in pointing out that James Bond is really James Bond. It's not a designation like 007.

in which movie? How do they do it?


How do they point it out? And what percentage of Bond fans has actually read the books?

His father was Andrew Bond, and his mother was Monique Delecroix, both of Scottish ancestry. They die in a climbing accident in the french alps when he was 11.

Just because you aren't aware of the backstory doesn't validate your incorrect assumption that Bond is a Nom De Guerre.

That just proves that at one point in time there was one man who was actually named James Bond. If you allow the fact that the original was such a shit hot agent that they had to carry on the name so as to continue causing the bad guys to wet their pants in fear the movie series becomes much more awesome and the quirks that each individual actor brings to the table become understandable. It also explains how a couple Bonds fall so heavily in love only to have that woman die and him then becomes a womanizer


Just pointing out again how this conversation evolved since you seem to have forgotten, already. You say your view is right. Then you complain that it shouldn't matter when I show you it isn't...

I guess you don't get it. Your woman must have the patience of Job with you.

regardless of our differences....the diner scene with just the two of them is my favorite scene in any movie ever.......and the gun fight in downtown LA is the second best movie scene in any movie ever....therefore, that film > all

agreed on the diner scene, awesome scene...also liked the scene with kilmer and judd with that unspoken warning they had

great movie in general but to be top 5 needed a better ending

on the fence here about this, as it's almost impossible to correctly end that movie any other way except the location it's shot in.
