after being homebound for a few days, ari and i finally got to get out of the house. we went to watch the latest installment of James Bond franchise, Casino Royale, which coincidentally was the first Bond novel from Fleming.
and finally… a fresh James Bond movie! unlike a few previous ones, this one didn’t make me yawn. everything in the movie is more hard-edge than the older Bond movies. the actor is more burly. the action is more raw (which makes it more exciting). and the dialog seems to be more clever and not cheesy. i think this is a good movie in general, it makes the James Bond franchise exciting again.
two of my favorite parts are:
- Daniel Craig as James Bond ROCKS! very clever and charismatic instead of the usual flamboyant Bond, which is out-of-style. he’s currently my favorite Bond.
- the movie’s stunning title sequence. just like the rest of the movies, it’s fresh and different than your usual Bond’s stuff. very cool!! you just have to watch it.
can’t wait for the next Bond movie to come out!
