    Casino Royale was dreadful. The worst film I've ever sat through. Because Daniel Craig is a decent actor they tried to exploit this, aiming for the deep and meaningful - some of the dialogue with the lead female was hilariously naff - when Bond (as I guess Peter hints at) should be light and frothy.

    Stay at home Melissa! Apparently the new one is a mess of a film.

    Sorry!

    Seems like it has gotten mainly bad reviews, I was gonna see it, now I wont, until I can download it or whatever. Maybe Daniel Craig is a decent actor, but he doesnt have much of the charisma a Bond should have, hes more like the hired gorilla type that the bad guys in Bond movies usually have around them.

    As far as Blade Runner is concerned I doubt they could ever make the second one hold a candle to the first. Why mess with perfection? (The Director's cut was not so good though IMO)
    But I will see what I can do. Ridley just may be up for it
    His new movie just came out and the next one is due in 2009 I believe.

    Hello Melissa

    Sean Connery was the ultimate Bond. To be Bond you have to be tall, dark and handsome not small, fair and ugly. Daniel Craig is a good actor but never a James Bond. Sorry GJ and Sweden are spot on with their comments so my advice is to listen to us guys for a change I'm sure the film will gross millions but only because of the hype.

    Come on George Lazenby was the worst ever James Bond and they took him from the chocolate bar adverts.

    Blade Runner has to be the best film ever and thought the Director's cut was also good. The atmosphere of the film was complimented superbly by the music of Vangelis - I have a CD of the soundtrack music which is great. Melissa when you are next talking to Ridley why not say that the film was perfection but rather than a sequel could he knock one out based on Roy's (Rutger Hauer) the chief Android's words:

    "Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die."


    Wouldn't that make a great film based on the above? Come on get on the Dog and Bone and have a chat with Ridley for us.

    GJ - Did the ice storm effect you in Plymouth?

    Thanks

    Peter

    OK, you guys win about James Bond... I am outnumbered and I know when to retreat
    ...but I still enjoyed Casino Royale



    (I agree the soundtrack to Blade Runner was excellent).

    Melissa

    PS GJ, I hope you are OK. An ice storm sounds scary

    Are you a close friend of Ridley Scott, Melissa?
    You know, it still amazes me that you are kind enough to mix it with us rough sorts, hereabouts.

    Here's a thing: I've never watched Blade Runner. I started, but it was all in the dark. I kept wanting to scream "Turn the ******** lights on!' If I ran Hollywood I would make it a rule that all films should be made under the midday sun or, at the very least, with 1000w bulbs about the set.

    Thanks for the concern: the storm was very localised and hit Ottery st Mary only, Peter. ( A big kid, I'm a little sad I missed it.)

    Sean Connery, Daniel Craig? Oh come on, it's a well known fact that David Niven was the best Bond, and that the original Casino Royale eclipsed all the other Bond films combined; with, perhaps, the exception of From Russia with Love......and only because the producers had the good sense to cast Robert Shaw as Red Grant.

    Melissa is a New Yorker so must rub shoulders with all the stars.

    GJ you have to watch Blade Runner as it's a must - I reckon it's your type of film.

    That ice storm was amazing and so unusual with cars just buried in huge chunks of ice.

    redKen I thought you would be supporting Sean as a fellow sweaty sock? Is it my imagination or are the Bond girls far better in the earlier films than they are now? Who can forget Ursula Andress emerging from the sea in Dr No.

    I think the reason the Bond girls are better in the earlier films (and by better you mean prettier right, well and more interesting?) is that they might have had another opinion of what was beautiful back then? I mean in the latest 3-5 Bond movies the girls dont even come close to the ones in the more classic movies, and I think its because in the older Bond films the women where "naturally beautiful"...well at least thats my scientific theory ;) . And the same goes for Bond himself, in the old ones they didnt need a hot muscular body, for instance Sean Connery has a more naturally charming appearance, he doesnt need any muscles to go with it. Another example, Brad Pitt probably wouldnt have had the success hes had if he didnt have that reowned physique, while someone like Johnny Depp doesnt need a body like.
