    Default Quantum of Solace

    One of things that struck me about Ian Flemming literary James Bond was that he was a WWII RAF vet, and as such by the time we meet the 40 year old James Bond in the books we get a feeling that one way or another this is a guy who has been fighting a war for a very long time, first against the Nazi's then the Soviets.

    One of the things I really like about the way they are dealing with Daniel Craig and this James Bond, is I get the same feeling.

    He's not someone who just was born a super spy, but he's a soldier who is fighting a war.

    And he has to make moral choices that he doesn't even have time to consider or he dies.

    I won't talk about the plot details because in many ways they're irrelevant what. What I do want to talk about is the tone of the movie.

    In my opinion Daniel Craig captures that almost shell shocked keep on fighting no matter what feeling that was never captured in the movies.

    And it's amazing I can't wait to see what they do next.

    Spoiler:
    I am glad the bad guy he shoots form the last movie gets away and doesn't panic at the opera scene I hope they bring him back as a Blofeldish type of super nemesis or something

    I re-watched Casino Royalle last night. One of the best Bond Films, imo.

    When he kills the african dud with the rear naked choke, you can see he has his hooks in. Gotta love that attention to detail and authenticity.

    I just thought Casino started off great and then just went on too long. I hope Quantum has only one ending and not three like the last one.

    So it's like Metal Gear Solid. Cool.

    i liked the new one - it really seemed to get the twists of a spy movie right while developing the new Bond further. I also found it rather refreshing to see that the femme figure in Casino is actually impacting the next movie - continuity FTW!

    Excellent movie. Yeah, it definitely seems like they rebooted SPECTRE too.

    I'm still trying to get over the fact that Daniel Craig looks about 10-15 years away from wearing a tied up handkerchief on his head and complaining about the damage to his lettuce patch.

    Was that a Monty Python reference?
