We are back this week for our discussion of Quantum of Solace. One of the most negatively reviewed films in the series. This one plays into my theory of when Bond films stray too far from what Bond films usually are. Look at Moonraker, or Die Another Day for example. This one is accused of being too "Bourne". But hey, this is stuff you already know. So hit the download button and hear what we think! Hope You enjoy!
We are back this week for our discussion on 2006's Casino Royale. This is the film that brought me to Bond permanently. Daniel Craig was just a powerhouse. He brought a little bit of Sir Sean with him for the ride. You can feel 007's heritage in his performance, while making the role seemingly entirely his own as well. He is a wrecking ball in this film, while still bringing on the charm and sophistication to the role, something every Bond needs. And alongside him, Vesper, one of the best Bond Women we've ever seen. Intelligent, witty, and with a side of deception. One of the more in-depth Bond Women characters we've ever seen. We meet playful and mischievous Rene Mathis, who is right up there with Kerim Bey as far as sidekicks go. Equally as charming and humorous. We are introduced to Le Chiffre, who is menacing in his coolness. And of course, we are also introduced to the coolest Felix Leiter of all the Felixes in Jeffery Wright. This is in my mind the best of the best when it comes to 007.
Well here we are. The last of the Pierce's. The man did a great job in all his 4 films as 007. I think he was let down by the material. Sad to see him go out on this one. I honestly don't think he got the scripts and directors he deserved. Ah well, we still had a lot of fun on this one and it shows. Here you are folks, our discussion of DAD
Well... we are back. This week we bring you our discussion on The World Is Not Enough. We really weren't sure about how this one would go down. I think between the two of us it is the least watched of the Broso Bond films. Not that there is anything wrong with it. Goldeneye being one of the best and DAD being one of the worst. I guess TND and TWINE just don't get enough attention. Well be that is it may... Enjoy!
Sharing a segment we recorded for The James Bond Complex Christmas episode.
So we've kept you waiting a little while, again, and again. We BOTH work retail and it has been (as usual) a pretty long slog for the both of us leading up to Christmas. So we're sorry for the wait, but we've been just a little busy. That aside, we're back! We watched and conversed over Tomorrow Never Dies! We had a blast working on this one and are happy to say we are back to our normal format on this one. Plot points, ludicrous back and fourths and audio bits snuck in. All the usual stuff. Hope you have fun on this one, we sure did!
Well this one ended up being a bit tricky. My brother kindly came on to discuss GoldenEye with us and the audio was a bust. Sadly we couldn't use it. We tried to re-read our points and then try to splice in the good bits from our initial conversation but it felt too scripted and not genuine enough. So we just had a conversation about it and that is what is here. We will revisit the film maybe at the end of the film reviews once we've had a break from it. That said, sorry for the delay and we hope you enjoy!
We had a technical issue this week and have to put off our review of License to Kill until our next episode. But we did do a review of Casino Royale that was originally broadcasted in 1954. This is just a short one and so is the film. Hope you enjoy! what do you think of our new theme song?
