    just went a saw this and was quite suprised it was really pretty damn good.
    Danial Craig was a kick ass 007.

    If you like bond you will like this film

    I agree, it was a pretty kickass movie, there have been much worse bond films.
    As well as bonds.

    Now the whole world's going to know that you died scratching my balls!

    The Bond film previous to Casino Royale (forgive me I've forgotten the name) was a piece of shit.

    Casino Royale was awesome, Daniel Craig got a lot of shit for being chosen to play Bond but he is probably in the top 3 actors who have ever played him.

    If you haven't seen it, then go now! lol.

    Saw it this Thursday. Awesome movie.
    But I almost started crying when he crahed the new Aston Martin. Luckily the old one survived him.

    Daniel Craig is my "third favourite" James Bond :lol: but nobody beats Sean Connery and Roger Moore.

    Moore was a joke. I prefer Brosnan to him. Going to see Casino Thursday with the missus :evil:

    +1 Dalton, Moore, and the dude who did Bond one film all suck compared to Connery and Brosnan. I'm kind of anxious to see how Craig is.

    I want to see it too - a dialogue clip, courtesy of a friend of mine:

    "How would you like your martini, sir?"
    "Oh hell, however."

    :D

    I think it was something like
    "How would you like your martini, sir?"
    "Oh hell. Do I look somebody who cares?"

    No doubt that Moore introduced an acting style that includes a little more comedy style. But I think it was just fine after the disappointing George Lazenby.
    "The Spy Who Loved Me", "Live And Let Die",and "Moonraker" where both excellent Bond movies. To be honest I didn't like "The Man With The Golden Gun", "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Octopussy" very much. The only ones I liked with Pierce Brosman are "Goldeneye" and "The World Is Not Enough". So Moore wins 3:2.

    I haven't seen this movie yet as it's not yet shown in Japan, but my favorite Bonds would be Shawn Connery and Pierce Brosnan. I normally like Timothy Dalton, but I just didn't think he really worked well as Bond. And yes, Roger Moore was a joke. :agreed:

    There was a lot of alcohol involved in this conversation, so you could be right. :D I still think it rules, in the context of this as the "first" movie.

    i thought it was funny that instead of baccarat (sp) they were playing texas holdem
    the one thing about the movie that was a bit disappointing - No Q

    seriously its not Bond unless at some point you hear Q say "Now pay attention 007"

    I figure they'll introduce Q in the next one...

    I'm not sure Q was so significant in the development of 007, which seemed to be the theme of this movie. It was more hand to hand combat than fancy gadgets anyway. The focus needed to be on M and they think they did a hell of a job with what they had.

    Watched this last night. It was entertaining, but just dragged on for too long after the actual plot was done with. Plus, the British chick never got naked. :(

    Not bad though. 7/10

    I beat Roger Moore regularly. With a big stick. He was shit as Bond in my opinion.

    Agreed. I thought it started really well but as soon as it got to the bit in the train it went downhill. Some of the acting and lines were awful and made it drag on a bit too much by the end. If she got naked I would have happily ignored the shit bits towards the end that I didn't like. :(

    By the way there is no way that woman is British - she had the most fucked up accent I have ever heard! Is that how us limeys sound to you then Chris? :lol:

    ;)

    This is one of my favorite Bond films for sure. Craig makes Brosnan look like a douche.

    Daniel Craig did a great job, but the girl's accent wasn't that good.

    I actually missed out on most of the plot because I saw this on an airplane with crappy TV screens so I couldn't see half of what was going on. I guess I'll have to rent the DVD someday.

    Great movie, great DVD conversion too which I was pleased about. Sometimes when a film is put onto DVD it's just not the same, but this one was done very nicely. I think Daniel Craig is possibly the best ever Bond to date (apart from the classic Connery!). Eva Green is extremely tasty in it too. I just thought that the whole film was tastefully done, with great special effects and stunts.

    Here's to Daniel Craig starring in many Bonds to come. :yesway:
