“CASINO ROYALE” (2006) Starring DANIEL CRAIG As JAMES BOND -007… …Brilliance In Motion.

I’d Totally Forgotten How Wonderful This Flick Is.

In Fact…

…It Totally Trumps The Entire PIERCE BROSNAN Series Of Films.

CASINO ROYALE

…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.

Period.

Now…

CASINO ROYALE

…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 Considerย  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!!!!!!!

    • 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!!!
      LOOOOOOOVE IT!!!

      • 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.

    • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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….

  3. 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • 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.
