    name='Brett Sinclair']I'd like to think (and I think that there's a reference to it in the film) that a professional killer would almost be totally devoid of emotion. Hell...he even leaves some hot totty (yes ...I know) lying on the floor of his beach bungalow to fly off to Miami ...without so much as a 'keep it warm'


    That never happened to you in your guise as 077, did it your lordship?

    name='batman']I thought Die Another Day had some good moments but was let down by the ridiculous plot and the awfully cheap looking CGI. I am pleased Daniel Craig has won awards for his performance and been BAFTA nominated because he is great in the role and retained his dignity through all that obscene anti-Craig bollocks.


    I loved the beginning though - Bond caught, imprisoned and in trouble - that I thought was a nice change.

    I get the sense that CASINO R has aged fairly well over these past few months. It's still selling a lot of 2nd-Run theatre tix, and comments around the table are no longer focused on "the new Bond, right or wrong?" but whether the film works, it's slow parts, it's good parts, etc.



    I don't believe the Bond series was in real jeopardy, of course, or that any one or a series of films will make or break it - there's always another chance, I think. Still, it's going to be interesting to see if CASINO has opened up a door to "significant changes allowed" in the actor, the character, driving silly Fords instead of Ferrari's (everyone nixes the Ford, by the way, Dear Movie People - if he can't pull up in a DB_, what about finding a Yugo next time, eh?)

    The Mondeo was hardly Bond's car, more likely a rental after all, he was in the Bahamas. Did we see him drive it in the UK? There have been plenty of less than excellent cars over the years...but not necessarily JB's.



    Carole Bouquet's 2CV, Joe Don Bakers' Brabant (or was it a Polski Fiat?), Dalton's Audi estate, ...Connery's Triumph Stag (Diamonds Are Forever)

    Yes, it was obviously a rental. We moviegoers SHOULD demand that Moneypenny do a better job, however, when she gets his tickets, hotel and car-rental reservations.



    Why couldn't they have borrowed Pierce's 6-wheel Jeep-thingy from THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR? That was only an island or two away... don't tell me Rene was driving it EVERY day of the Bond shoot! Surely someone could have bought her a few towels and that would have been enough... good grief - just look at that house! That beach! Why does she want to drive anywhere EVERY day?!!



    I really think they should consider replacing Moneypenny.

    Oh, not me. I have enough fun with the men around me to worry about tormenting the Bond du Jour. Besides, I don't see Moneypenny ever having fun in really short skirts and tall heels. I see her enjoying the "grinding them under her heels", but no necessarily the Gloria Grahame flip-of-hair fun.
