    And I'm glad Craig-Bond doesn't shoot off cutesy one-liners after he dispatches a baddie. He's a killer. A cold-blooded, ruthless killer. And he only seduces women when it serves some sort of objective (beyond getting laid, that is).

    In the current run, my favorite scene was that brutal hotel fight in Quantum of Solace.
    "Just die already," was the look Craig gave after stabbing the assailant in the neck and wrestling him to the ground.

    Morbid black humor defeats cheap puns any day of the week.
    And yet the cheap puns date back to the very first Connery film if anyone cares to remember.

    Why, 50 years later, are people all of a sudden complaining about it?

    Uh.... two of us here are complaining about it, and it's not even close to 50 years for me.

    - When I was a kid, I liked it.
    - When I became an adult, I became bored with it. The movies were just big jokes to me; the movies became their own cliches. I had stopped watching Bond movies right after License to Kill, I think... I barely saw any Brosnan versions, and didn't plan to return to the franchise.
    - When the Craig version came out, I suddenly found Bond interesting again.

    I'm not complaining. I like well-delivered puns.
    But it wouldn't feel...right...in sequence with Craig's wolverine killer Bond.

    I also hate the poster. To me, it's like it should be a female model on the front end of a Ferrari. It's as if they really are trying to make Bond gay.

    Yes. He looks very gay to me.

    ... well, I'd still hook up with him.

    Man...you really have it out for this movie, Uber.
    You gonna whine when Bond sips a Heineken over his usual martini?

    I think it's confirmed that he does drink martini, and this time he might give a damn whether it's shaken or stirred. And he does have the "Bond, James Bond" line, too. It was in one of the trailers.

    I'm not really bothered by the martini scenes, I'm more bothered by the idea of putting the gun barrel sequence at the end of the movie instead of the beginning. It really makes no sense. The gun barrel is an iconic moment that draws you into the world of James Bond. It changes the feel from an average spy movie to a James Bond movie immediately. It was designed as an opener, but having it as a closer is just a silly artsy change that really has no purpose.

    I understood the gun barrel placement in Casino Royale, and I thought it worked really well, but it's time to put it where it belongs again.

    When I first heard the song, I thought it sounded a bit to obviously theme-songy to be played on the radio, what with the title of the film being right in there and all. I thought it was a good theme song, but not a very good song just to listen to. It's growing on me a bit, though.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    And I hope there's a car chase in the film. There hasn't been one of those in a Bond movie for a while. That stupid one in Quantum of Solace doesn't count, and the one in Casino Royale was not a real car chase. I'm talking about a car chase with gadgets. We haven't seen that since 2002.
