I can honestly say that before today I don't know that I have ever seen a double-oh seven movie all the way through. I'm really not into espionage movies so I just never gave it a thought. Today, Eli asked if I'd join him to see Casino Royale and boy am I glad I took him up on the offer. From what I've read in many magazines there was much to do about Daniel Craig becoming the new James Bond. I don't know what all the fuss was about because DAMN! he is fine with a body that rocks the party in the best kind of way - keep your eyes open for the scenes of him emerging from the water in his tiny swim shorts. Yum. He's got an egotistical dark side but he's a hero and a lover. There's nothing wrong with that. There have been many a night that I've begged my parents to turn off the poker tournaments on TV but when James Bond is dealt his cards it's hard to not get sucked into the game. The villains look villainous, the women are vixens and the twists and turns are plenty. I'd give my left breast to drive an Aston Martin like the one M, the always amazing Dame Judi Dench, gives Bond and watching it get demolished nearly brought a tear to my eye. From the moment Casino Royale begins you're sucked into action that will have you leaping out of your chair. You should all know by now I'm famous for my participation when watching movies and I was dodging punches, ducking under bullets and diving out of the paths of explosions for the entire 2 and a half hours. I applauded at the end. That's all I can say.
By the way? The trailer for the new Spiderman coming out in May of 2007? Hotness.
