Interesting choice in Mendes. Not sure how I feel about it

Can't wait...another suckfest.

Since Daniel Craig got cast, I have not enjoyed one second of the new Bond franchise.
Miss the good old Pierce Brosnan days?

Can't argue with a plot like that.

Shit. I've hated all the Sam Mendes films I've seen with the exception of Road to Perdition, but that gives me some hope for this. I thought there was talk awhile back about a Danny Boyle Bond...guess that fell through...
Didn't like American Beauty or didn't see it?

I wasn't a big fan. Loved Kevin Spacey in it, but beyond that didn't like it a whole lot. I hate Revolutionary Road though.
Like American Beauty a lot, like Jarhead, didn't hate Revolutionary Road as much as most but still didn't think it was very good.

I didn't like Jarhead either and I'm not really sure why. I'm not a big fan of either Jake Gyllenhaal or Jamie Foxx so maybe that was it...I think I might have to see it again. Most of his films are undoubtedly well made, I just don't like the stories/characters a lot of the time. Road to Perdition was one of my favorite films of last decade though, so I don't know.
I like Gyllenhaal quite a bit, not a huge fan of Foxx but he was alright. Road to Perdition was very good, loved all the performances and seeing Paul Newman one last time was really cool.

Yeah, I've started liking Gyllenhaal a lot more lately, thanks to things like Zodiac, so maybe I'd enjoy the film more now. Foxx isn't a bad actor, but something about him has just always bothered me...and I'm still kind of upset that he won that Oscar.

Paul Newman was great and I really enjoyed seeing Hanks play a role like that. It was just a beautiful looking film as well.
Liked a lot of performances that year better, which isn't to say his was bad, but off the top of my head I liked Deep in Finding Neverland better, Cheadle in Hotel Rwanda, and Dicaprio in Aviator.

I just really didn't like Ray as a film and wasn't that impressed with Foxx in the title role. I thought he was better in supporting that year, where he was also nominated.
Was that Collateral?

I actually enjoyed Brosnan. But, hell, I'd take Timothy Dalton any day over Craig.



And by "best" you must mean boring. God that movie bored me to tears.
Not gonna argue with you but Craig is my favorite Bond other than Connery and Casino Royale is probably the 2nd or 3rd best bond ever.

I long for the glorious days of Pierce Brosnan and hotels made of ice and artificial suns.
