I'm really glad that the recent Bond movies seem to be going back to basics and are moving away from the campy stuff of previous Bond incarnations.
Bond is still high tech, but it's his wits and skills that get him out of most situations, and that's great.
But I have to admit, I miss the gadgets and the scenes in Q branch that show them testing weapons and gadgets that are borderline absurd. And I miss Bond being issued a gadget that is meant for one purpose, only to have him find a completely different use for it.
Anyone with me on this or am I just grasping on to something from the Bond movies of my youth that really needed to go away?
I like the gadgets but it got to be a bit much for me in the Brosnan era. Too much of a focus on the gadgets and too out there (invisible car). I wouldn't mind seeing a few in the next movie though as long as it was done well and served a limited purpose.
