Movie Review!  
Yes, I actually went to a movie--the first since Pirates in July. What did I go see, you ask? Casino Royale, I answer. I'm not a Bond fanatic like some I know, but I have seen them all--including the unofficial first Royale with Woody Alan and Never Say Never Again which brought Connery back to the role. (He should have let that offer pass). With this background, I can say I rather enjoyed it. I had no problem with Daniel Craig--he has charm in spades, and, well, those eyes--and he carried off the part wonderfully.

Now, this is his first 007 mission so we get to see how things start off. He did get to ride a '64 silver Aston-Martin--briefly--and we see him order his vodka martini for the first time and how it follows him throughout a section of the movie. The one thing that bother me was in the keeping of Judi Dench as "M". If this was supposed to be his first mission, "M" was male. Judi Dench didn't get the part until Goldeneye and her promotion was commented on. They could have kept her as the person who would becom "M" and mayb make references to some other "higher" authority since they couldn't get the casting they wanted.

That's just me, anyway. Fun movie and lives up to Bond standards

I heard you and terimaru had quite the fun fangurl conversation. Glad you enjoyed. And don't inconsistencies make you crazy? We should be their betas.
