I caught a bit of GoldenEye over the weekend and was reminded of how much the 007 franchise was just going through the motions even long before Pierce Brosnan's arrival. Casino Royale went a long way toward restoring the vitality and enjoyment of watching James Bond, and it looks as if Quantum of Solace will continue that positive direction. Don't believe me? Just watch the newest trailer: See what I mean? That shot of Bond falling through the glass ceiling at the 1:24 mark is awesome all by itself. In conclusion - Daniel Craig owns this role and you know it. But if he ever gets killed I'm fairly confident Judi Dench could kick some ass too.
The last James Bond flick, Casino Royale, kicked so much butt, not even a crappy title like Quantum of Solace makes me want to stay away from the next one. It comes out in November here in the U.S. (October for my brothers and sisters across the pond), and here's the first teaser trailer... Hot damn! Secret Agents Gone Wild! I'll be ready for this to come out, just about the time I'm coming off the high of the next Batman movie.
...Quantum of Solace? Come again? It's supposedly taken from an old Ian Fleming short story, but that's just horrible. George Lucas is laughing at this title. It sounds more like a crappy new age album than a spy movie.
