I think the unveling of a new James Bond is definitely worthy of it's own thread. Who's excited about Daniel Craig being the new Bond? Who's disappointed? Who's seeing the movie this weekend? etc, etc, etc...
I for one wanted Clive Owen to get the part originally and was disappointed that he turned the job down. I was like; "Who is this Daniel Craig fellow?" Anyway, I watched a movie called Layer Cake
, so I could see how he measures up and I can totally see how he could be a really good Bond. Add to that how good the new trailer looks and the positive reviews I've read and I'm really quite pumped about it.
I always liked Pierce Brosnan, but with the exception of Golden Eye
, the Bond movies he was in were very mediocre (especially the last one
). I've always thought there was a better Bond and better Bond movie waiting to be made... a hardcore, serious Bond, you know? Anyway, I'm really hoping Casino Royale
delives on this. My wife and I are planning on seeing it Sunday afternoon and I'll be sure to come back and give my opinion after I've seen it.
