Recommended Posts

The official 007 Twitter account just announced that Danny Boyle is out due to "creative differences."

I'm not saying that I'm *not* interested, but how do you have creative difference with the guy who directed the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony - FEATURING Daniel Craig as Bond - and replace him with Purvis & Wade (GRRR-HRR-HRRR-RRRR) and the guy who directed a Netflix show by saying "Remember, you're Jonah Hill and Emma Stone - and SCENE!"

This has "missed opportunity" written all over it.

I will say that's not fair. Maniac may be his most recent thing but both Jane Eyre and Beasts of No Nations were very well directed films. Also, he did some great work on the first season of True Detective.

I'm regularly unfair.

Also, I will concede that I am basing that description of Maniac on what the director himself told the BBC website, and have not seen the actual show.

But I maintain that we're missing out not having a Bond film with Danny Boyle's stamp on it.

I’ve only seen two Danny Boyle films, both of which involved major poop scenes played for laughs, so I’m not too bothered.

I’m gonna finish Beasts of No Nation and at least try Maniac. I didn’t care for Jane Eyre but that was because it was Jane Eyre.

As the most recent episode of The Show shows well. 

But I usually acknowledge when I'm being unfair, unless you have a specific example otherwise.

Could you extrapolate? I'm not saying Boyle is a flawless director (I fucking hate The Beach, which stars your favourite guy Leonardo DiCaprio) but poo scenes played for laughs......?

They were Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire. I actually liked the former. He also directed a bunch of Morse episodes and I love that show.
