Dang! I really like that trailer, no idea why Judi Dench is in it for a prequel ethier. Maybe she is the ultimate boss bitch, she does play the part very well.  ;)

As for Daniel Craig, I'm giving him that chance.  :)

I'm not "feeling" the theme right now... but I may like it more once I see it in the film. The score was leaked already, I wonder if it is any good.

-Sigh-
Daniel Craig, he doesnt seem like a bond, you know.
I mean I liked Pierce Brosnan as Bond he was good.
I'm not sure if I'll like the new one.  :-\

From the early reviews, it looks like we have a new Bond. Daniel Craig is being praised in some quarters as the best Bond since Sean Connery.

To me Daniel Craig just looks too beat up and ugly for the role. Is it true that Craig is gay?

I am still a fan of the original Casino Royale  ;D link

I think Craig offers a look at Bond from the angle that he is not 007 at the onset of this story. I could see Connery evolving from Craig's character (from a time line perspective). Hopefully,  Judi Dench is playing her character pre-M; otherwise it will be Sebastian Shaw all over again.

I know continuity through the films is suspect, but can someone explain something to me?

I've been sitting down to watch all of the early Bond films for the first time ever, in order. Why is it that in On Her Majesty's Secret Service Blofeld does not recognize Bond. Is it the Superman/Clark Kent's glasses disguise?

Saw it tonight and damn was it good. Just goes to show that you don't need 7 intertwining plots to make a film interesting.

i thought it was pretty good too.  i kinda miss the gadgets, but it was probably the best story for a bond movie since goldeneye.

I do to, but then I realized that this is technically, the first bond adventure, and "Q" didn't show up until the third.

I thought it was a really good movie.  I, too, was skeptical about Craig as Bond, but I think he pulled off a "younger" Bond pretty well.  I heard the next one is supposed to be a true sequel to this movie.

I assume they modernized the movie a bit with the Texas Hold'em.  Since I have played poker, it was easy to call the two big hands though.

Humble Pie never tasted so good.
I was sure he was gonna suck
He proved me wrong, the chase on foot was awesome at the start, I still reckon he's fugly but he had the Attitude for Bond and that got him there.
Awesome movie
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself
