The Rebirth of Bond
14 November 2015
Excerpt: In June 2002 audiences around the world were swept off their feet by a deadly government assassin with the initials J.B. He wasn't very smooth, but he had the ability to improvise his way out of just about every situation, and as he discovered who he was, so did we.
Excerpt: The 2006 film, Casino Royale, stands shoulder to shoulder with Dr. No as my favorite movie in the James Bond franchise, and, on its on terms, this movie comes closer to perfection than anything else released in the past decade.
Summary: Simply the best Bond of all times. Also if Daniel Craig isn't the best actor I could imagine for this role, this is subordinate because of the great supporting actors. Eva Green is fetchingly good and Mads Mikkelsen as the antagonist is also very well played.
As good as it gets!! Truly A/V to a Great Bond Movie, "arguably" the
3 March 2012
Excerpt: This is the one that changed everything. It took Bond in a totally new direction. Gone, is the silly gadgets, the flat one-liners, ridiculously action sequences and preposterous story-lines. This one is gritty, classy and realistic, for the most part.
Summary: Easily one of the best, is not the best, Bond films since the days of Connery. The dark and gritty tones are a welcome change of pace, and the story still manages to infuse humor in the right places, and in my opinion also in the right quantity. Easy 10.
