Director of #Woke James Bond Film: Bond Was Previously "Basically a R@pist," You Know

The director of the new James Bond film says that the character was previously "basically a rapist."

Current James Bond director Cary Fukunaga has claimed in an interview that the iconic 007 played by Sean Connery was "basically" a rapist.

The NYU grad noted the questionable sex scenes in the classic 1960s' movies and told The Hollywood Reporter how he would help update the famous British spy for the #MeToo era.

"Is it Thunderball or Goldfinger where, like, basically Sean Connery's character rapes a woman?" Fukunaga asked, referring to two of the six Bond movies that starred Connery, who died last October.

"Shes like 'No, no, no,' and hes like, 'Yes, yes, yes,'" Fukunaga, 44, said.

"That wouldn't fly today," he told the trade mag.

...

Barbara Broccoli, who has been producing Bond films since 1995, praised Fukunaga for bringing Bond up-to-date in the upcoming "No Time to Die," which is Daniel Craig's last time playing the suave spy.

"I think people are coming around -- with some kicking and screaming -- to accepting that stuff is no longer acceptable. Thank goodness," she said of previous sexism and questionable sex scenes in older movies.


...

"You can't change Bond overnight into a different person. But you can definitely change the world around him and the way he has to function in that world," he said.

"It's a story about a white man as a spy in this world, but you have to be willing to lean in and do the work to make the female characters more than just contrivances."

Of course, this is the film in which the 007 codenumber is given to a black female character, who then demeans and bullies James Bond.

And Waller-Bridge really fought to give the Nomi character depth, which means... talking about her weight issues and her period or something.

26 A core part of old 007's character is that women wanted to have sex with him.

And...a tough, suave, smart secret agent is indeed likely to be popular with women (at least the ones that weren't born with balls).

Barbara Broccoli has said that as long as she's in charge, Bond will be a man.

Hell, even super lefty Daniel Craig said, very recently, that the "solution" to "representation issues" is to make better characters for people of color, not to give them Bond.

I think the new Bond has been selected, Craig knows, and it's a white dude.

71 There is one movie, I don't remember which it is, where he's getting some kind of treatment, the nurse or attendant or whatever leaves the room, bad guy enters and tries to kill him then leaves before the job is done, then nurse comes back and turns the death machine off. Bond then tells her that she should never have left the room and if she doesn't sleep with him right there, he'll tell her boss. I'd call that rape.

And no, I don't remember the details, but I definitely remember being appalled when I saw that scene.

That being said, the whole Jane Bond idea is still stupid and offensive to women. Why not have an ORIGINAL female character with her OWN story instead of subverting an existing male one like that Ophiocordyceps fungus thing?

Bond/Pussy Galore roll in the hay comes damned close, but eventually she says "what the hell, it's Connery".

Frankly, I suspect that the wokeists are more pissed about that scene because Pussy was set up as a lesbo in the film, and Bond "converted" her IYKWIM.

108 So, who's gonna get blamed for the movie bombing? Is it the men, who can't stomach being upped by a strong woman type? Or women for not understanding we got your back girl, and you're still bowing to the patriarchy? Or fans in general, for being unrealistic shits?

Funny how there's been movies of women that kick ass, and they do amazingly well. Aliens franchise comes to mind. But no, they refuse to come up with say, an American lady spy. Nope. They have to destroy Bond, who represents everything they consider to be toxic masculinity.

They're the rapists.

They rape every single thing that was inventive and loved by millions of people. They bugger it until it dies from internal bleeding of the anus. And then point at us. Fuck all of you.

130 He was super sexually aggressive in Thunderball, but I'd never say that he ever raped a woman in the movies.

Here's the thing about "super sexually aggressive" men: women hate them, except when they don't. Women's romance and erotica is filled with "super sexually aggressive men." It's a lot like the difference between Alphas and Betas in the workplace; one can get away with things the other can't, often for reasons that have nothing to do with the execution.

There was an Alfred Hitchcock movie Connery did right around the time (maybe a couple years earlier), where his character actually did rape a woman. Well, she was his wife, and I know there are some people who will say that's different, but she made it very clear she didn't want it, and it happened anyway, so I'd say that's rape.

Wasn't a Bond movie, though. And it wasn't a very good movie anyway, in my opinion.

No, it was something one aspired to. I did not want him to go outside to the Aston Martin and find that it did not start, cause he left the dome light on while loading his Walter PPK.

154 Y'know, there was a time when the same bullshit was disposable joke fodder for sitcoms. In "The Critic" - an animated sitcom from the 90s (mid, IIRC) - they often showed farcical movie clips that the lead character would then scathingly review. They were always derived from real movies.

One was a new Bond film called "Doctor No Means No" where 007 and the chick he's bedding are sitting there negotiating terms and going over sexual histories before the lady decides not proceed, accuses Bond of sexual harassment, then storms off.

That was a joke (and a fairly cheap, low-hanging fruit joke at that) 25 years ago and now they're actually making the movie - but only after turning it up to 11.

And so what if he's an aggressive seducer? That's part of being the spy that he is. (isn't he more counter espionage?)

He's flamboyant, aggressive, death defying. So when it comes to other parts of the human condition of course he's going to be very aggressive and over the top with his sexuality.

And don't tell me that not one of those he seduced weren't eager for it.

And I suppose they're correct to make movies for the likes of those who will go see them. I think we've put too much of the idea of shaping of society on the Movies. Maybe it will be good for them to be ignorant and worthless as entertainment.

And who are those for? Those are for women. The bodice-ripper with sexually aggressive men bedding the damsel is written for women. It's their space, and so all is well.

Bond is not for women. Insomuch as it's "for" anyone, it's for men. It is therefore a male space and thus all is *not* well. If it is a male thing with those exact same behaviors, it needs to be subverted and destroyed. It is how feminism works. If the thing for men has *any* of those elements, it must be torn to pieces. It doesn't matter that the thing for women has precisely the same constructions.

The recent glut of Jane Wick chick assassin films has really been a downer. They keep trying to shoehorn women into that role, but when it comes time to do the fight scenes, it's obvious that they're about 3 beats slower than the stuntmen NPCs they slaughter. The last time I saw this was Kate, with Mary Liz Winstead. She was WAY slow in the fights, made it difficult to watch.

There's no reason that a great chick assassin film can't be made without expecting us to ignore the physical differences between men and women. A character who relies more on stealth for her kills, rather than stand-up fistfights with NPCs that outweigh her by 200 lbs of sinewy muscle.

213 I think James Bond needs a little camp.

--

true but not true.

Bond in the books, as I undersatnd, is an actual bad ass. like a proto-jack reacher type. you know, the author goes off into details about tech and bond's thoughts about things.

bond in the movies has been all over the place to where he was basically a kids movie with tits.

I remember watching octopussy on hbo and not getting any sex out of it. The girl in teh bikinis were just talking to bond.

But that level of camp couldn't survive and it went back and forth. consider brosnan's bond was basically a daniel craig type compared to the end of Roger Moore's tour as bond.

At best they read the cliff's notes version of one of Ian Fleming's novels. Nope, they have to cubby-hole all the things. And stereotype Bond with none of the positives.

TBH, all of the Craig Bond movies were woke, and got progressively worse. Strange how Bond used to be just fine with strong women and strong women agents, but they'd never know that because they were too busy shrieking.

It's entirely possible it does ok on opening, because they're going to lie about it - like Smith and He-Man. But word of mouth will get out and it will drop like a rock. I'd be willing to bet no matter how much of a bomb this is, they'll still come right out with another, and that will kill the franchise for 10 or more years.

236 >>Bond is not for women. Insomuch as it's "for" anyone, it's for men. It is therefore a male space and thus all is *not* well. If it is a male thing with those exact same behaviors, it needs to be subverted and destroyed. It is how feminism works. If the thing for men has *any* of those elements, it must be torn to pieces. It doesn't matter that the thing for women has precisely the same constructions.

Good point about the difference in audience, romance novels vs. Bond. But I grew up watching Bnd movies and could understand that he was ultra-classy alpha dude who could brutally kill a foe and then show up to some fancy place in a tux and seduce the hottest woman in the room.

Not sure if it was the morphine, but I started laughing my ass off - which is really not good when you've had massive gut surgery. It hurt like hell. I was laughing uncontrollably while trying not to throw stitches, etc... After almost literally busting a gut, I had to turn it off asap.

IIRC Austin Powers is actually what helped kick-started the Craig era. His parody was too spot on as to where the franchise had gone.

Golden Eye had come out earlier, and was still pretty camp overall. They tried to get more edge on the Brosnan movies after that, but doubled down with Casino Royale (I still prefer the David Niven version).

In 1966, Brian Wilson heard that he was going to be asked to write a Bond theme, so he did.

It turned out untrue though, so Brian turned the song into the actual track titled "Pet Sounds."

Exactly. Buffy's friends like Willow were not endowed with Slayer powers, and more than once we saw they were outclassed by the vampires. On top of that, Buffy had to *train* to handle her role; she was not "Oh, I'll walk in and slay a few vampires, no sweat." She had to work on her weapon skills, for example.

No. She can act when the material is good. When it's bad, however, she just mails it in. Which in itself isn't great but she can definitely act.

Tarantino says he wrote the character Lee in Death Proof and didn't think there was much of anything there when he was done writing her. Then MEW came along, auditioned, and brought the whole character to life - stuff QT didn't even realize was there - and he immediately knew she was the one.

And she was uniformly excellent in Season 3 of Fargo. Very charismatic and believable.

well, I'm glad you asked.

Steve Rogers, IMO, got the best super soldier syrum, with Tony Stark's dad's best vitamin sunrays and Dr Erskine's SSS.

Hydra copied part of the SSS and gave it to bucky.

The vile Karli Morganthau got a third gen SSS.

so bucky was pretty strong and in order for MCU movies to have any drama (seeing as how their screenwriters suck) they nerf and buff the heels and faces as needed for the plot.

I mentioned "Anna" upthread, there's also "Red Sparrow.".
The female assassins use their strength, which is being hot women and seduction, so they sleep with their targets. I'm guessing feminists aren't happy about that, since it makes 'em like prostitutes and also, playing up femininity instead of being kickass men with boobs.

459 Seduction is not rape. 007 was the best there ever was at seduction. How Connery played that aspect of the 007 character is flat out iconic and is also exactly why my mom pitched a fit over me seeing the Bond films. I went any way and loved every second of the those films. Still do. Always will. The Woke crowd can kiss my ass and die. The new version is a disaster and destroys everything that made those movies and that character epic. Sadly that is the point.

516 I only recognize one Avengers, and it's got Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg. Honor Blackman was nothing to sneeze at - but they didn't give her the fashions that Miss Peel had.

Same here! Though Honor Blackman did originate the leather catsuit look. Diana hated wearing them, and got the producers to give her catsuits in a fabric that worked just as well on camera.

Plus, Emma and Steed really *liked* each other. (I always suspected they'd been lovers once, and found they worked better without that distraction.) Honor's Cathy Gale always seemed irritated with Steed for some reason.

518 Women don't go to see James Bond movies, Men do, and they bring their girls. Only SOY BOYS will be seeing this, and they don't have girlfriends anyway. So this movie is going to be a big loser. We all know it. This movie should be changed to "Time to Die", as in the franchise.

Damn, really? I loved the Eccelston Who, that's what got me back into the series. Didn't miss a one. Really dark and brooding, seemed like a perfect doctor for the 21st century. Was really sad to see him go. After that it was a slow downhill slide, with granted some absolutely brilliant moments along the way.

Hard to believe the same guys responsible for something like Blink also spit out tripe like Kill the Moon or Orphan 55. Damn, need a drink thinking about it.

537 Regarding female assassins in Bond World, Rosa Klebb is in From Russia with Love and the book has her quite the sneaky and efficient killer.

Regarding the rest of it, there were several recent tv shows with female spies as the lead that did not make them into superhero types.

However, one of the more realistic shows, which I have mentioned before, was an odd British TV show called The Sandbaggers. Seedy sets, minimal Bond type action, but excellent writing about the spy business during the Cold War. You can find it free on amazon prime and some other places. The first episode is excellent and Decision by Committee is a fine piece of television among other episodes.

The series has quite effective female spies but often these are KGB agents.

Don't know if it's been mentioned here (still browsing the comments) but the Tom Selleck movie LASSITER is well worth checking out for just that kinda sequence. The rest of the movie is a delight too -- can't beat Bob Hoskins, Jane Seymour, and a heavy like Warren Clarke thrown in too. Enjoy.

Bond themes? Yeah, Moonraker and Diamonds Are Forever, but for the instrumental versions I always kinda liked From Russia with Love.

Bests to all.

546 Well, it's expected for the woke to go see a woke movie.

Our age has passed folks and they don't make movies aimed at us anymore because our demographic is declining plus we stay at home and don't have much spendable cash as we're on a fixed income of some type.

That's just the way it is. I'm sure the greatest generation started complaining about the late 70s and early 80s movies for the same reason.

There's just a very defined demarcation between "our" movies and "their" movies so it's more obvious the difference. Go downstairs and work on your models or wood working while the wife knits afghans(no not those kind) in her Sewing Room.

Theres no f-ing way I spend good money on this proposed claptrap.
I can see them,making the "Bondette" ultrawoke and othergendered...

The Bond from the novels is a slightly sociopathic individual shaped by his deeds and experiences and the fact that rules that apply to others don't apply to him. The social veneer is thin but effective on a man who is called to do anything for God, Wueen and Country without doubt, questions or hesitation.... Connery played this kind of smooth and slick social animal.

This will be another financial disaster of woke cinema... Where woke = shit.
