the name's bond er... or is it?

although i was advocating in support of quantum of solace but the truth is that i too missed those moments of finesse which made bond the literal impersonation of suave. the way he uttered most popular phrase, the way he lined his cuffs and checked his cuff links and the way he twitched his neck.

there is a deep paradox about the character of bond. pierce brosnan and his predecessors embodied tuxedo of steel over the body of flesh and heart of steel and craig is exactly the opposite - the body of steel inside the soft, soiled, bleeding, torn tuxedo and heart.

but end of the day, it is all about money. craig will be bond and bond will be craig till it sells. and although i liked casio royale somewhat, i have some demands as a customer:-

what i would want from next:-

1. curvier bond girls :D more skin show :D
2. more gadgets for bond's personal use
3. simpler plot

what i would not want:-

1. cuts or bruises or blood even after long action scene
2. ruddy persona for bond
3. emotional bond

U bet this guy is a major bore. I only like Casino Royale for the simple reason that I had to like it!

I honestly planning to save some bucks by avoiding this movie :)

And may you be granted all that you do 'not want'! :)

miss thinker - you know he is somehow very different. he is what they call innovation. sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. but they somewhere down the line marry his persona to the old bond image

I disagree.

the 21st century bond is a lot more fun than the typical two dimensional Bond of yore. I want the new bond any given day, seriously

tazeen - the problem is that the new one is as lacking in the qualities of old ones as old ones were in the qualities of this new one.

in fact i would admire new bond a lot too if he gives the dialogues and girls a little more of his time.

otherwise vin diesel in xxx is better off
