Casino Royale.

I'm a huge Bond fan. I have seen all 20-and-then-some Bond flicks. For the record, I believe the best Bond thus far has been Roger Moore, although I have to tip my hat for Sean Connery. Pierce Brosnan, his best work was Goldeneye imo. Die Another Day was better than The World is Not enough, miles ahead better than Tomorrow Never Dies. Yet Goldeneye is the benchmark for the best "new-age" Bond flicks.

When I heard that they were making Casino Royale, I couldn't help but be excited. A prequel of sorts when James wasn't yet a 00-agent. Should you need more 00-facts, Casino Royale is the first James Bond novel by author Ian Fleming. You can say the foundation in which all 20 films have been built upon.

English actor Daniel Craig is the new Bond. By the looks of things, the movie will have some darker tones to it. A more adult oriented, more story driven 007 seems to be what they are aiming at. Instead of crazy over the top CG antics we have witnessed so far, surfing on the north pole anyone?. I believe the Bond franchise needs a restart, maybe a more in-depth plot. Casino Royale seems to be going that way, and I for one, can't wait to see it.

Bond...James Bond.
