There is a reasonable chance I'll see it one day. I've only seen one Bond movie in a theater, though, and I only went for the company.

Nope. First, not enough money. Second, never really cared about the 007 movies in the first place. Third, now that they've removed Peirce Brosnen, I really don't care for it.

I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

There is only one true James Bond.

Bond is not blonde... I can't believe they've let the actor do that. It's wrong.

I might see it anyway, since I'm a fan of Bond movies. At least, the old ones... haven't seen the last two.

I'll wait for the DVD so I can see the movie without the annoying backround noise of the audience. They drown out the lines.

I know they wanted to keep Judi Densch as M, but she was hired because the original actor died. It breaks continuity since this takes place when Bond starts out not when the actual government hired a woman for the position.

The trailer actually makes it look pretty good. I might eventually (emphasis eventually: not an active fan of the franchise.)

I've got an issue with a blond James Bond, but I will be going to see it. No Bond could ever be as great as Connery or Moore though.

btw, 'blond' was not a typo. People who think English has no gender-specific adjectives are fools. :P

I'm a fan of the Bond films but like Ephesos I'm not really fussed on the idea of James Blonde. I'll probably just rent it when it comes out on DVD.

Connery was indeed the Bond.

I WILL go see the new one. A) it's a remake of Casino Royale! What's not to love? B) it was decided to tone down the ridiculousness of the last few Bonds (sorry, Pierce) and make an actually good movie, and C) I've always loved Bond.

I agree, Connery was by far the best. I did like Roger Moore, however.

Connery was the best, but Brosnan and Dalton weren't that bad. Moore was too much like Simon Templar when he did The Saint. As for Lazenby, he only got the one movie.

Yes.

And voting on best/worst Bond its Connery/Moore. I wasn't a big fan of the Dalton era but I think that had more to do with the movies themselves rather than the acting within.

I'll see it when it comes on TV, and not before. I rarely go to the cinema (last film I saw was around Christmas - last year) and I don't think I'll waste my money on a Bond film.

Daniel Craig has had good reviews, for what it's worth:

The recent Bond movies were horrible. I hope this one makes up for them.

The trend has bounced on the floor several times, likely due to the lack of Ian Fleming. Reuse of old material can either flop or fail. Either way I'll look for it in January at NetFlix.

I just saw it yesterday. It was surprisingly good. Craig is no Connery or even Brosnan, but he's a lot better than Dalton and quite good at the role in his own right.

Hubby already saw it, going more for the company then the interest in the film.

I'm not inclined to watch the movie unless the movie comes to me and I don't have anything better to do. So it depends on if it becomes one of Aunt Barb's rotating movies.

I've just come back from seeing it. I liked it a lot, and it's rather different from the standard formula.

It didn't seem like a Bond movie at all. If the characters had different names, you'd never even be able to guess it was.

Saw it, about two weeks ago.
Those going in should be warned that they took a 60's story and set it in modern day. This is not supposed to look like Goldfinger or anything else with which the movie crowd is familiar.
Realizing this, I loved it. Call it a neo-Bond approach, call it a miss attempt at classic Bond, call it whatever: it's a fresh look at a familiar set of characters in a well-produced, well-directed, mostly solid film.
Craig is no Connery, true. Not even Brosnan hit that level. On the other hand, unlike his predecessors, he doesn't try to be like Connery, and the approach that he's taken appears to work.

I liked Dalton. Wasn't a big fan of those particular movies, but I blame that on the stories and not on Dalton himself.

And I really cannot see the attraction of Sean Connery as Bond. He doesn't move right, he doesn't talk right, and he's just not that suave, sophisticated, or sexy. It also probably doesn't help that whenever I see him as Bond, I keep thinking of Russian submarines and dragons.
