My vote for the next James Bond? Retro Bond

As we wait to see Daniel Craig’s last mission as super spy James Bond in “No Time To Die,” many people are speculating about the next actor to take up the role.

I do not know who is in line for the job, but I do know what I would like to see in the next reboot for this movie series. I want it to go retro.

“Dr. No” launched the series in 1962, and I would absolutely love to see Bond portrayed once again in the same period. Give me those fashions, those cars, those low-tech spy toys, those Sixties-vibe villains. Take me back to the mood that made me love Bond movies in the first place.

Don’t get me wrong. I have enjoyed many of the modern-era 007 films. I thought Craig was great in “Casino Royale” snd “Skyfall.” But I think the technology available to today’s Bond — constant contact with MI6, a phone that can do almost anything, hacking from a remote location to gain information the original Bond had to break into places to get — has given many of the movies a certain sameness in recent years. I think going back to the 1960’s would make everything seem fresh again.

What do you think?
