I watched the movie on friday and I was really surprised. The critics have been so bad but he was so good.

I was so excited to see parts of the Czech Republic standing in for Montenegro. (although it piqued my curiosity as to what Montenegro looks like. Anybody been there?) The Czechs in the audience I was in have gotten pretty blase about their country representing other countries in Europe, though.

The movie was definitely different in tone from other recent ones. I don't mind too much, but I was hoping to see John Cleese. Did it strike anybody else that James Bond is just about the most obvious secret agent in the world? I mean, not only does he leave a trail of wrecked sportscars and bullet ridden historical places behind him, he tells everybody his name. You'd think that the British secret services would try to recruit introvert types instead of people who are busting a gut to tell you who they are. I'll bet James Bond's house is filled with monogrammed stuff, too.

I'm pretty sure Montenegro is a country Michael Palin is visiting in his upcoming series, Intrepid. :)

Back to Bond - Margaret Pomeranz, a noted film critic here in Oz, reckons Daniel Craig is the best Bond since Connery. What do you guys make of this?

Tend to agree Ellerd, I think he's brought the character into the new century.

I saw the movie today and I have to agree, Ellerd. I thought Daniel Craig was fantastic. He brought a gritty realism to the character. So many of the post-Connery Bond films have descended into cheesy cliche but I really felt none of that with Casino Royale. It's almost like a reinvention of the whole franchise and definitely a turn for the better.

Going to see this one next week with mates - sure its going to be a really cool wicked film - been told by lots of ppl that it rocks!

Montenegro. Hm.
You know Ellerd, that's a good point...
I'll bet that MP's visit's going to be THE introduction to Montenegro for most people in North America.
