Went to see the new Bond film, Casino Royale yesterday.

Daniel Craig, who plays the new Bond does an excellent job. This movie tells how Bond became the Bond we’ve known over the past 30-40 years, albeit modernized to fit in the modern world, rather than in the Cold War setting of the original novels and movies … and the story is much more realistic than any of the previous films as well. No sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their heads in this movie.

Only downside is that it was a little long, and started to drag in a couple scenes … all-in-all, though, I’d still give it 2 thumbs and 1 big toe up.
