Casino Royale remains my favorite, but this was still a great movie. Bardem and Deakins' cinematograpy were particularly impressive. It was also nice to see Dench have an expanded role. Could have done without the Komodo dragon scene, but other than that, no real complaints.

Also nice to see Bond taking a few pages from the old Kevin McCallister playbook when it comes to dealing with criminals.

People complaining about the Komodo dragon scene must really hate the older movies. Roger Moore escaping an alligator infested lake by running and jumping across the gators backs must make their head explode. I know some of that cheesy stuff makes less sense in the more realistic Craig movies, but I thought the komodo dragon scene was a good nod to the older films in honor of the 50th anniversary. You had mention of the exploding pen, the ejection button in the Aston Martin the hidden machine guns, I felt the komodo dragon scene was just another throw back to the classic bond stuff.

I'm a page late on the song discussion but when I was younger I actually bought a compilation CD of the Bond themes...some of them were very good.

Of the recent ones, the only one I didn't really like was Die Another Day....I really liked the Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, and Garbage themes

haha

I'll probably watch it again. I didn't like how Daniel Craig looked. i guess he suppose to look old and worn, but he really did look old and worn. Casino Royale he was big and ripped. He said he slimmed down for the next Bond. But this one looked like an emaciated billionaire. Huge Craig fan but he just wasn't the same and i don't know who to blame or if it was intentional. he lacked the luster. He was off his game before he even got shot. I mean, the bad guy had the jump on him, shot him up, and kicked his arse before he took a bullet.

and the movie really just made me desperately want to buy a plane ticket to shanghai.

Wow, that was amazing. Easily the most epic of the Bond films. Just a completely gorgeous piece of cinematography as well...very lyrical at times.

Jack White and Alicia Keys. I'm pretty sure I actually kind of liked that one, or at least didn't dislike it.

Yeah I haven't heard it...or seen QOS for that matter. I just remember everyone saying it wasn't good. I'm bout to go to youtube and listen to all the themes so I wanted to know who sang it. Thanks.

Amazon e-mailed me to let me know that I can pre-order a copy already. And I'm just contemplating if I want to go back to the theaters to watch it again, haha.
