007 days of Bond: Casino Royale

As I'm about to head out to see Quantum of Solace, I figured I'd round off the last of my seven top Bond films with Casino Royale. Borrowing a bit from an earlier review, Casino Royale is another film in a line of recent productions that have "reset" a original series, and not surprisingly most of them have been able to breath new life into the series.

An interesting part of the film is the way the film is structured, with four acts instead of three. In many ways, this probably is what caused so many people I know who talk about the film dragging on, even though I don't really see it.

And word to the wise, please avoid the "spoof" with every inch of your life. The film was directed by no less than 5 people and it's utter sh*t.

Drink your very own "Vesper" martini:

* Six parts Gordon's Gin
* Two parts vodka
* One part Kina Lillet

Shake over ice until well chilled, then strain into a deep goblet and garnish with a thin slice of lemon peel.

Guaranteed heart stopper! Err... maybe not.

I think Craig is fine as the new James Bond, for it is different from all previous ones.
