Casino Royale style... - Page 3

post #31 of 416
I'm surprised so many of you didn't like the movie. That was the best action film I've seen in years. The Bourne Supremacy was the last film in this genre I liked a lot, but I thought this was significantly better. Totally exceeded my expectations, and Daniel Craig in particular was amazing.

Agreed, he dressed accordingly to the situation. You're not running thru a construction site in a 5k Brioni and Lobb monk strapes (or church's). I like the theme of a rugged kick ass Bond who physically is one of the first who looks like he could actually throw a punch, jux'ed with the elegant/refined sophisticated suave Bond. Bond always dressing for the situation. You wouldn't be wearing a suit and tie on a boat either; that's silly. His casual was perfect.

None taken, but you probably missed my being imressed with your favorite tailor recently. I happen to dress the same almost every day just changing the color of my suit and shirt, so I can relate to that in a character. I actually liked some of the casual clothes in the movie, but there was nothing as good as the slothing from the early Bonds. Those movies had a lot of style. For me, Brioni just doesn't do it and never has. As far as Craig/Bond/Movie, I love the goofiness of the early Bond movies. The books are terrific and gritty, but the movies should be more fun that this one IMO. It was simply an action movie with an OK plot. Also, I have to say that the Bond girls have gotten much worse lately. Eva Green has a nice, natural body but her face is so-so. Give me Honey Rider or Domino any day.

And I posted this on the film review thread, but did anyone else notice that the striped shirt he wore near the beginning of the film was too large around the neck, whereas the tux shirt was an absolutely perfect fit?
Yeah, that was actually a somewhat important plot point. The girl even made a comment that he shouldn't wear off the rack unfitted clothes. Bonds unrefined, not suave, more of a brute of a killer that uses his head. Later on he get his own style.

"the white short-sleeve shirt with epaulettes."

i had a problem with this too but it grew on me. I keep wondering if it wasn't supposed to look like the valets at the hotel? what was that first car: a Ford?

I guess the costumes were ok. I thought the movie stunk and that Craig was the worst Bond in history. He is a terrific actor and was great in Munich, but he is no more correct for James Bond than is Whoopee Goldberg.

I actually went in with the attitude that I thought the movie wouldn't be that good, but he was surprisingly good in his role, which was definitely different than Brosnan, a little bit of Dalton in License to Kill, clearly much colder and more impassionate than previous Bond's, but I thought it was effective. Looking forward to the 2008 edition.

countdemoney, thanks for the picture of the Casino Royale Special Edition watch, I was wondering what it looked like since I was led to believe it had a rubber strap instead of a metal bracelet.



The other watch is called the James Bond watch which is not the 2531.80 SeaMaster Professional but rather the new improved version using a Omega 2500 Coaxial Movement.





I just wished this one had the Professional Coaxial Chronometer printed on the front.

This is the none limited edition:

Sorry guys but Bond cannot only be a bodybuilder Vin Diesel XXX STYLE...
Bond must be suave ,sexy ,attractive with a magnetic twist and in the same dangerous...
Sean Connery is still the number one for me....

I enjoyed the movie and was impressed with Daniel Craig's performance. Better than Brosnan IMO. I really liked the suit he wore at the very end; although I thought it was a charcoal suit?
