Casino Royale

Recommended Posts

Even if youve seen every other james bond film, you wont be bored. Grizzled mafuckas, 11 out of 10 girls, a bond car with little more than two minute camera time before being fucked up, guns, a gas tanker that doesnt blow up when you shoot it (you know, believability), that extreme walking crap (not so believable). Just dont ask why Jeffrey Wright gives Bond 5 mil and youre set for a good show.

I saw this the other day and it was actually really good. Of course I've never seen another James Bond movie so I have nothing to compare it to. But if they'd just called it "Generic Spy Film: Action Packed!", it's entertaining on it's own merit.

Ill indeed. The first fifteen minutes were fucking nuts. I liked how it was shot like an older bond film-- right down to the angles, lighting, etc.

 

The only thing that sucked was the Chris Cornell theme song.

Pretty much. Almost as bad as Nickelback on the Spider-Man soundtrack.

 

And it was weird that there were no women, not even silhouettes, in the introductory/song scene.

Its over. The James Bond legacy is dead.

I disliked the Chris Cornell song heavily at first, cause it was so fucking generic, but when I heard the more orchestrated version used in the credits I actually grew fond of it. I know it's gay, but I can't help it.

I completly forgot how gay the intro bit was. Rock music? Some flash animated shit? I wasnt as dissapointed about the no girls as I was pissed off how much my eyes hurt from all the gay colors they used.

I love killing nights at the drive-in. You can't beat seeing 5 movies for $24, even if more than half of them are sorta ass:

 

Saw 3 - Cool ways to kill people. The concept is now officially played.

 

The Grudge 2 - MTV-style horror. Shitty plot. Bad 'scare' sequences. I don't know why Sam Raimi's name is anywhere near this.

 

Deja Vu - I only watched 10 minutes of this but it looked alright. Didn't see enough to comment.

 

Departed - Pretty good. Held my interest through MOST of it, but it could've been a lot shorter. Saw the ending coming. Too much hype ruined it. I'll like it more in 2 years when I've fogotten how good it's supposed to be.

 

and Casino Royale - I only made it through the opening half hour before we scooted off to see Saw 3 (bad move), but I was really digging the classic-style cinematography and the fact that bond isn't a flakey pretty-boy anymore. I'll definitely be going out of my way to see this all the way through.

Disagree on the intro bit. I thought that shit was damn nice and elegant, very well executed.

 

The intro was amazing. Save for the song, is all I'm saying.

Bond Books Racist?

 

I like the books, SO much more racist...

 

"you only live twice" has a lot of "oriental" stereotypes in it but entertaining anyways.

 

 

 

I think "stereotyping" is a more appropriate term for the books when Ian Fleming describes Bonds dealings with "non-white" people. To describe the books as "racist" is kinda of stretching it.
