"It fits what she’s singing. The days when the lyrics of Bond themes invariably came laden with woeful double-entendres pertaining to the hero’s sexual prowess are long gone. (It reached a deranged pinnacle on 1974’s The Man With the Golden Gun, which required Lulu to note “he has a powerful weapon” before wondering, “Who will he bang?”)"

Yes. No more testosterone filled James Bond, but a more feminist approach to the Bond character. We can't have Bond behaving like an Alpha male can we. Hetrosexuality is obviously on the way out, to fit the new agenda of the castrated male or should I say gender neutrality. The Bond producers seem quite a happy let James Bond become a castrated male. Bland, boring and empty.
The way Bond treated Solange Dimitrios in Casino Royale, Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace, and Lucia Sciarra in Spectre would indicate otherwise.

Take that up with the Bond producers Broccoli/Wilson, they wanted a more hard edged Bond back in 2005. I would say it was far more extreme, and border line psychopathic, compaired to how Bond was portrayed pre Licence to Kill in 1989. Now Bond is going to be an empty bag of nothing. Neutered

If your happy with that, by all means enjoy your new James Bond.

We just call it Scotch. The whisky part is kind of assumed...

Unless you like drinking tape, or eggs...

Well after hearing that God awful song Deadite, I'll hit the bottle of Scotch in the drinks cabinet. It's enough to make you love alcohol.

Scotch, here I come.

How can James Bond both be "far more extreme, and border line psychopathic" and "an empty bag of nothing. Neutered"?

I meant the whiskey spelling in the hivemind's post, which is reserved for the American and Irish varieties, with the Scottish version of the drink spelled 'whisky'.

The character of Bond was made more psychopathic, and the levels of violence were far more extreme. Well you would be confused after liking a song that sends you off to see a psychiatrist.

I'm confused by how you can say that Bond is psychopathic with extreme violence and yet neutered "castrated by the femininst's who seem to prefer a more Alpha B to the standard Alpha A male Bond".

The castrated beta male you're describing wouldn't be capable of extreme violence.
