New Rule: You can't tell me you're making James Bond up to date when he's still wearing a tuxedo to the casino. Have you been to Laughlin, Nevada? You're lucky if the player sitting next to you puts in his teeth! You know how you can tell a high roller? His sweatpants are clean! There's a name for people who wear tuxedos in casinos: magicians.

I saw it twice in two days.... It has my stamp of approval.

Daniel Craig is a beleivable Bond who could really do some ass whipping if necessary.

A nice touche to the movie were showing cuts and bleeding on his knuckles after he returned to the poker table following a fight.

James Bond SHOULD look beat up.... not neat and tidy...

Has anybody seen "Layer Cake"? That's next on my to-view list. The same guy plays a slick Bondesque anti-hero.

Saw Layer Cake and loved it. When the new Bond was named I knew that he'd be the best since Connery. Haven't seen it yet, but the reviews seem to back me up.

The new Bond was a must to keep up with the times. The others were cheesy and outdated. This one is going to be hard for Austin Powers to make fun of.

I told my Dh that over the T'giving holiday, when all the relatives are in town, that I wanted to see the new Bond movie. The reviews sound great...

I am a huge Bond fan. I have seen every movie on the first day they premiered in the theaters. I was only 8 years old when my older cousin (who was in the navy) took me to see Dr. No. I was hooked from the first white dot that marched across the screen. My favorite is Sean...but Craig did a fabulous job and I think has really captured the fan base again. I also liked Dalton & Brosnan, they did nice jobs in the role. Lazenby....he was OK. I didn't care much for Moore...he was too comic book for me. But what I really love is the Bond character. The movies are exciting with great cars, fabulous locals, killer music, and then there is the famous martini. Glad to hook up with other Bond fans here.

We saw it on Tuesday. We want to see it again. This movie was great! It wasn't until we got out of the movie that I realized that it's a pre-quill. It was cool to see Bond as a bad ass rookie. Daniel Craig is my favorite Bond. And I thought I'd never say that.

Only real problem was the total lack of chemistry between Bond and Vesper. Total.
Oh, and Bond driving a Ford. Although there was enough Aston Martin-age to overcome that silly bit of product placement.

The worsst shame of Lazenby as Bond was that aside from his presence in OHMSS, it is one of the very best Bond films - if Connery had done this one, it would be aces.

I am fond of Dalton too - he played Bond closest to Fleming's original vision of the character.

Anyone here a fan of the original novels? Good stuff, and very different from the films. Fewer gadgets, no slapstick, usually only one girl per book, and continuity from story to story (each picks up where the last one left off, and sometimes with cliffhangers - like Bond having amnesia at the end of You Only Live Twice, and having to prove himself to M again in Man with the Golden Gun).

The product placement was a bit odd in this film.... Have you ever been in an airport that had a vending machine for Beer (Heiniken)? The Ford thing was laughable, but Ford would be kind of exotic if you were on the Riveara.... Well, maybe not.

The lack of chemistry between Bond and Vesper was the result of her being so thin that Bond couldn't see her to be attracted to her. If she turned sideways she disappeared.

The film was really excellent and I really appreciated the fact that it was a prequel and that they didn't try to do it in flashbacks or any other kind of 'trick'. And, I would like to direct your attention to the fact that the incidental music during the film did not run with the continuous Bond Riff that we all know so well. There actually wasn't a lot of incidental music in the film which is a nice switch from having an entire film telegraphed by the building music.

My only real gripe with the new Bond is he was a little too pumped up to be a British Spy. Not overly pumped like a body builder, just a bit bigger than he ought to be and only really noticeabl when he is shirtless.

Ah, yes. But the torture scene wouldn't have been nearly so good if he was wearing clothes. Ouch.

I also missed the classic opening 'bouncing dot' thingy.

And who's to say British Spy's can't be "pumped up"? We're not all like Harry Palmer you know.....Now THERE was a classy classic spy.

And the WOMEN! WHAT ABOUT THE WOMEN?

Besides all that other great stuff Bond movies always bring some of the HOTTEST ACTRESSES to the screen....not as many this time but enough eye candy to keep the good Doctor's sweet tooth satisfied!

LOL...oh yeah...I guess there are a few of those. My favorite Bond girl was Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder in Dr No...she really was the ipitomy of the classic Bond babe. My all time favorite though is Judi Dench as M. She does a fabulous job and doesn't have to wear a bikini to turn Bond's head.

Well, we've got classy joints here too. All are welcome. But yes, informality is the rule, and if you dress up nicely you'll still find yourself amidst guys wearing tank tops with slogans like, "Avoid hangovers -- Keep drinking." A bit banal sometimes, but there are worse annoyances. Wearing a tux would signify that you are either entertainment or part of a wedding. But hey, we've got a river and three lakes. Take that, Vegas!
