How else to describe James Bond? Or shall I say Daniel Craig's reincarnation as 007? If I were a judge, I'd give Craig a ten for his suit - swim and evening. I agree with the critics who called Craig the best Bond since Sean Connery. When he was first announced as Pierce Brosnan's replacement, I was put off by the blonde hair like most people, but I think he ended up making an excellent Bond. He's got the physique, the good looks, and the something in his "air" that gives him that alluring Bond arrogance. I also like how they paired Bond down and took him back to the basics, back to where he started from. Craig captured his transformation perfectly through the early cockiness, the pain and vulnerability, the loss of love and trust to become the man we all know: Bond, James Bond. I was sad that something had to happen to Vesper in order to complete this transformation, but I knew it was coming. Eva Green was one of the best Bond girls in a long time. Aside from being a good actress, the character was smart, sassy, beautiful, brunette, and witty. Match and point. I can't wait to see what they do with the next film.

Okay, I had to stop reading part of this post since it looked like it might contain a spoiler -- I haven't seen the movie yet, but it is high on our Netflix queue -- but I heard Craig was great, too. I was also really put off at the idea of a blond-haired, blue-eyed Bond, especially since they removed Bronsan and I really liked him. But, I think I'm going to like Craig's gig when I finally see it.

Never seen a Bond movie and don't plan on it. Of course, that's what I said about LOTR and Star Wars and now look at me... :-/

Watch one for me darlin! Sexy Bond, hot girls naughty and nice, and sexual innuendos abound - What's not to like? You'll love it for the lines alone, if I know you and your 12-year-old boy sense of humor. Oh, and the accents. Hello!

Okay, okay. I'll watch one for you, Ang. But only if you host a Bond Night at your place! The accents are definitely a draw...
