"Casino Royale"

Daniel Craig is THE James Bond of note, IMO. And the 'feel' of the newer Bond flicks is FAR better than the gizmo laden prior ones. Much closer to Fleming's stories.

No No No

It's young Bruce Willis doing a Die Hard script - even the girlfriend drowns. Bond would never get blood on his tux shirt or even break a sweat.

Of course I'll still watch it and Quantum of Solace was better IMHO. I do agree that campy is goofy but Sean is the only Bond (and Pierce too)

On the other hand, Bond is like sex - when it's good it's great and when it's bad it's still good.

"I only get it every couple of years, so I could care less how good or bad it is."

For us, Connery is King. Didn't like the campy ones after that; too predictable and gadgety. Daniel Craig is pretty good in returning it back to the cool calculating style of Connery.

Here is Mike Myers (Austin Powers) at a Sean Connery award ceremony

That's a picture that I don't want to even imagine!

Your eyes aren't going Doug. I saw the movie a couple weeks ago and my name wasn't in the credits. No big deal.

I like the new ones better too. The action is grittier. I have mixed emotions about the gadgets. I'm glad they are gone, but I was looking forward to the scenes with John Cleese as the new Q. I gotta say, having a defibrillator in the glove box was pretty stupid. I mean how many times would even a spy need one?

Methinks if Bond has enough cargo space for a defibrilator, the car's coddling the driver too much. He needs a Lotus. :smirk:

Yup.

The original Connery movies were good, and I really liked "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". After that, eh.... the Craig movies have been good.

I did think the scene using a GPS to navigate from the seaplane to the hotel in Nassau was a little bit of a reach if you know the place. That's kind of like me needing a GPS to find the publix around the corner.

That pic is probably about a year old if that. Your thinking of a different Fergie than Greg.

Fergie, the Pop star

Now now, you stop poppin' over there. She's got a good singing voice too. Even though a lot of vocalist' get their sound from a box nowadays.

Guest

I'm thinking of the same one.

That 2nd pic has to be older than a year or airbrushed as everytime I've seen her on TV, she looks like the "cat lady" from too much surgery. Lips way too plumped up and something weird going on with her eyes. Maddona has some weird gastly thing going on too and I think Fergie's hubby punched someone not that long ago for saying something bad about her looks.

She doesn't look like either pic anymore.
