So did I!!!!

And the new Bond is very cool.......and very violent!!!!
No more silly one liners and over the top villains - this one was a full on spy movie with an excellent plot/suspense.

I didn't notice any in this film. It was a serious movie.

But the one liners in the Connery and Brosnan Bond films were excellent (especially the scene in Goldfinger when the bloke gets electrocuted in the bath - "shocking"

My one pet peeve with Casino Royale was there was no Q branch.  I know the guy who played Q is now in the hereafter, but we should have had R (Cleese) showing Bond through the development labs, past a whole bunch of sundry nastiness being tested, and demonstrate some new toys.  It's my only reason for watching Bond movies and hence I was quite disappointed in this one.  Bring back Q branch.

Since Casino Royale was a re-boot of the franchise, there wouldn't have been a Q scene anyway, since he wasnt in the first book.

I'm sure they'll bring back the regular characters again - recast of course.

I thought the film was great, it finally went back to Ian Flemings Bond, the dark sinister character.  It was very much like the Timothy Dalton Bonds, which I liked.

I agree, Daniel Craig's performance was reminiscnet of Dalton's Bond, but even more darker and serious.

I think that Casino Royale and Licence To Kill are the best to compere with each other.

They both have little in gadgets and are just a good action thriller's.

Its good they went this way due to the fact if how over the top they went with the gadget in Die Another Day (or the Americans have finally killed of bond).

I totally agree.  Casino Royale was much better than Die Another Day.

I compare it likes this:  Die Another Day was like drinking a milkshake.

Casino Royale was like sipping champagne.

I think the producers have been clever enough to know when they've gone too far with something, so they change gears and return to Ian Flemings version of the character.

I loved Licence to Kill plus The Living Daylights, and I think Timothy Dalton deserves a lot of credit for restoring the Bond character to the more serious side - after the increasingly over the top Roger Moore ones.

A View To A Kill would have to be one of the worst Bonds made.  Although I thought the combination of Christopher Walken and Grace Jones was a good one.

Daniel Craig is the right age - 38.  Hopefully he'll last for awhile yet, possibly outdoing Brosnans 4 films.

I didn't like the movie much at all. I thought that Peter Sellars made a great Bond, and that Orson Welles made a great Le Chiffre. Obviously they weren't able to complete this movie. The cut and shuffle of the movie to make the final product left an extremely disappointing outcome.

Ho ho. It's SellErs, SellArs is the opera director who dresses like a clown and got sent home from the 2002 Festival of Arts.
And I thought Peter Lorre was great as Le Chiffre.
