I’d Totally Forgotten How Wonderful This Flick Is.
…It Totally Trumps The Entire PIERCE BROSNAN Series Of Films.
…Is One Of The BEST BOND FLICKS Since…
“LICENCE TO KILL“
…And That’s Saying A Lot.
I Simply LOVE…
“LICENCE TO KILL“
…And It’s One Of My All-Time FAVES From The BOND FRANCHISE.
I Consider It THE MOST Underrated BOND Flick.
…Is A Reboot.
It Takes JAMES BOND (DANIEL CRAIG) From His First Kill, All The Way Through, What Turned Out To Be, An Exceptional Adventure.
Once I’m Done With This One…
…I Plan To Watch…
“QUANTUM OF SOLACE“
…Which I ALSO Consider An Exceptionally Underrated BOND Flick.
What Are YOU Watching Tonight, My Peeps?!?!
Anything Worth Mentioning?!?!
I Sure Hope So!!!
Bring On The BOND, My Peeps!!!
Bring On The BOND!!!!!!!
We also just watched Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Great movies!
Agreed, Indeed, Dude!!!
A Return To Classic Bond, Only Much Darker And He’s Much More Cold And Ruthless. I LOVE IT!!!
Love this movie, and Daniel Craig as 007… Got me to agree on this one, Brad; no trouble at all…. 😉
hehehe Glad We Could See Eye To Eye On This One, Ms. Carolyn!
‘Tis A Fine Film! Fine Indeed!!!
I love Daniel Craig as 007. “Quantum of Solace” is an awkward title, but a fine movie.
Agreed, Mr. Bill!
The Title Could Have Gone Through A Couple More Think-Tanks Before They Settled On It, But The Film Itself Is Damned Exciting!!!
Pure Action, All The Way!!!
Just a little trivia here…Quantum of Solace is one of the last remaining Ian Fleming James Bond short story titles. With the exception of Casino Royale, they ran out of novels a long time ago and have been using the short stories. The last was The Living Daylights…again, with the exception of Casino Royale, the other Bond movies in between have been original works and titles. I’m sur QOS is nothing like the short story but considering the problems they had with acquiring the rights to Casino Royale I’m sure they decided to just use QOS for the hell of it.
Look At The Kojak, Bustin’ Out The Facts And Shit!
Gotta Love Ya, Dude!
Always There To Keep Me In The Know, Ya Know!?!
SURE YOU DO!!! hehehe 😀
I loved the title, actually, and enjoyed the movie, but after ‘Casino Royale’ it was something of a letdown.
I read the short story “Quantum of Solace” not long before the movie came out, and as you might expect, they are not at all alike. However, unlike most instances of this kind of thing, here I wholeheartedly approve. You see, in the short story, James Bond is merely the listener. It is only nominally a Bond story.
I’ve Never Read It, As You May Have Already Guessed. Now, I’m Glad I Didn’t! hahahaha
Maybe I did a poor job of describing it then, because it is AWESOME.
Oh, I see you’re talking about “Solace” not “Casino.” Yeah, Solace is just okay.
Have You Ever Seen The Americanized Version Of “Casino Royale” with Barry Nelson as James Bond?!
It’s Honestly NOT Terrible.
Had That Been My Only Intro Into The Bond Series, I Wouldn’t Have Been Pissed.
Peter Lorre Is A Personal Favorite Of Mine, In Most Anything He Did, Though He Generally Played The Same Guy Most Of The Time hehehe
I Did Read “Casino Royale” Though. And I Enjoyed It. And You’re Correct. BOND Is A Much MUCH Darker Character Than He’s Portrayed As In The Elder Flicks.
Casino Royale’s one of the best Bond films and probably the strongest of the last 20 years or so. I can’t wait to see Skyfall this weekend.
Me Also, Dude!
I Am So So SO READY!!!
Bring On The “SKYFALL”!!!
Bring It BRING IT!!!
I’ve always thought that Daniel Craig made a great Bond, although I think it is fair to say that casting him in that role does rather challenge the traditional perception of Bond as a red blooded secret agent. The media images of the body beautiful Craig (which was never an issue with previous Bonds) only adds to this. I know Craig is married, but the tape of him at http://danielcraiggaykiss.celebrityshocks.com/ certainly makes for interesting viewing….
You are so right about Casino Royale. The film does a great job of capturing the visceral, brutish aspect of James Bond. In re-reading the books a couple years ago, I realized that James Bond is not the sanitized danger-playboy of the older films, bur rather, he is a monster. He’s ‘our’ monster, but a monster nonetheless.
“License to Kill.” Wow. You know, I skipped school to see that movie (I skipped school to do a lot of things, which is how I managed to graduated in the 53rd percentile of my class), and I think I would rather have stayed for jazz choir. The only thing I remember about that movie is that Felix Leiter gets chowed on by a shark.
Yep. Felix Gets His Leg Chewed-Off.
But I Simply LOVE “Licence To Kill” As It’s A Darker Chapter In The Bond Series.
That’s Why I Love Timothy Dalton.
He Was Daniel Craig Before We Had A Daniel Craig. Darker. Sharper. More Likely To Shoot Your Ass Than Screw It. 😉
I really enjoyed “The Living Daylights,” although I haven’t seen it since it was in the theater. The only thing I remember is Bond and his love-interest (Somebody D’Abo) tobogganing on a cello.
Reblogged this on "You Jivin' Me, Turkey?" and commented:
Watching This One As We Speak, As I’m Taking A Break From My Uncle Duties. I Sincerely DO Love This Flick, As It Always Pleases Me To Watch It. ‘Tis Good Stuff, My Peeps. Even NON-Bond Fans Seemed To Enjoy This Caper.
Gotta Love It LOVE IT! 😀
