    Sweet. I have QoS to watch and will more than likely watch it tonight. I liked how Bond wasn't a nearly invincible force and made mistakes learned as he went along. The ending (despite my earlier confusion) made it seem like Bond was more confident and a little more "Bond-like" than he was earlier in the film. Good flick.

    He's not infallible in Quantum, either. I much appreciate Craig's interpretation of the character.

    I read an interview with Roger Moore and he said that even he liked the Craig interpretation better than his (Moore's) Bond who was more of a superhero than a spy.

    Moore's best Bond movie, I thought, was The Man With The Golden Gun. After that they started to truly concentrate on the more outrageous, wholly unbelievable aspects of the character's world.

    I am pretty excited for Skyfall. I don't think I have ever been excited for a James Bond movie before.

    Really? I thought Man with the Golden Gun is one of the worst Bond films ever. Live and Let Die was better.

    Living Daylight was fun but lacked an hard edge.

    I found Live and Let Die pretty silly fare. Better than some of Moore's later entries into the series, but lacking a lot of the edge he brought to the role with his second outing.

    Oh, I don't know about that. Indeed, that's one of the reason's I still enjoy that movie; Dalton's take on the character had a very hard edge to it.

    He was trying to be intense but the movie wasn't. Dude was sliding on Chelo. He shot the girl on the wrist because he saw she was a girl. Not very cold assassin. The big bad was trying to kill him in a toy museum. The Bond girl was goofy Maryam D'abo. The whole plane stunt. The film felt like it was trying to get out of the Moore movies' shadow but didn't know what it wanted to be. I enjoyed it a lot, though. Mainly because of Dalton.

    The best Moore movie was Octopussy. What a great title.

    Just like the character did in Fleming's story.

    Yeah, there were still Hollywood Bond elements to the movie -- but in terms of Dalton's performance, his interpretation of the character, I thought he was spot on, and really true to the character Ian Fleming wrote about.

    I have heard some complaints on hear about QoS not having much action, but I am about half way through watching it (I only have about an hour a night to watch movies/tv) and the first 1/2 hour is almost non-stop action. The 2nd 1/2 hour is action about half the time. So far, I think there is as much action as Casino Royale. I am quite enjoying the movie. I also like how Bond is "unbeatable" (he always wins the fight), but gets his ass kicked and kills his opponent (much to M's chagrin).
