    ^Eh, buff Craig looking wet and blue mood doesn't quite do it for me. I need to see more, like an action shot or you know, other people in the film ;)

    Re The Living Daylights. Literally, my husband takes an interest in pre Brosnan Bond the day before the batch is to expire on netflix! I begged him to watch TLD, but he was leary as it was 'eighties' and Dalton 'only made two'. So instead I convinced him to watch The Spy Who Loved Me. I had to defend, top Moore, top of almost everyone's Bond list, top 5 most definitely. I swore this wasn't just me. I told him my favorite was Goldfinger, but he balked at something so sixties!

    So he agrees to watch TSWLM, but friggin' Instant Watch had some kind of weird sped up movements and slowed down voices and we restarted the PS3 and then it was slow time moving with sped up voices, so we just gave up.


    I have From Russia with Love on blu ray coming next week. :)

    Well, FWIW, there seem to be implications that Skyfall will be somewhat more "nuanced and sophisticated", more "romantic", than Casino and Quantum. For one, the descriptions of the Bond girls--particularly the "glamorous and enigmatic" mademoiselle.

    It's a random picture of Craig sitting at a swimming pool...and yet when I look at it, it just screams Bond to me. Maybe it's the fact that I accepted Craig as Bond the second CR started, but that's just a really cool picture.

    ^I like it. It's pretty vivid. It screams, "I'm on 'em!"--as we see Bond about to break into a run, in hot pursuit of a lead....

    That's exactly what I thought. Maybe something is about to Skyfall out of his pants.

    If there was a walther ppk by his side then yes

    But to me it looks like it could be a biopic for a swimmer.


    I do know that Craig needs a solid box office hit.


    Cowboys and Aliens was panned and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" underperformed.

    I hope "Skyfall" breaks this chain

    Some, but not much, talk from Ralph Fiennes:

    Has this official synopsis been revealed before? I think it sounds familiar but saw it recently posted as news on another site:

    ^ Yes. The synopsis has been discussed ten or so pages back, I think. Very generic, probably on purpose. Almost sounds like a description of The World is not Enough (although, the film's story will likely be nothing like that).

    I like how they're testing Bond's loyalty to M. Wasn't that the sub-plot of the first two films? Also her having to trust him? LOL.

    Bond always seemed to trust M in CR and QoS

    So, Eve isn't Moneypenny...

    Apparently

    Although it could still be misdirection.

    Sigh, just for once I'd like it is a Bond girl didn't say "I'm a new kind of Bond girl, more 007's equal" in her interviews...face it, love, you're there to look pretty, probably shag 007 and possibly die a horrible death...

    In the old films there seemed to be three women for those parts. The first the nameless pretty one he's shagging before the opening chase. The second who may or may not be a traitor but will die, likely will be shagged before her end. And the last one who was with the villain, but falls for Bond and escapes with him and will be shagged if it hadn't happened earlier. Have they changed that format?

    Well he didn't actually sleep with Camile in Quantum.
