Amen.

I just watched Diamonds are Forever, and I'm not gonna claim it's better than... I mean, any of the Craig Bonds, but in terms of what I want more of? No question. The thing is, a back-to-its-roots Bond would stick out so much more these days even than it did in the 60s, tonally, in its lightness. I get that they have to abandon aspects of that era's humour (sigh) but that doesn't mean they have to abandon charm so utterly (and I liked No Time to Die a lot, don't get me wrong).
