Any Bond fans in da house?  

I was a huge Bond fan, but I have to admit I took a long break after Die Another Day. I still have to catch up with the latest two (only seen half of Casino Royale, and not one minute of Quatum of Solace), and I plan to do that before Skyfall premieres. 

And to start this topic properly, here is Adele's Skyfall theme that Cary dug up today.

I have seen every Bond film, can't wait for this one...seems an improvement over the sometimes meandering "Quantum Of Solace".

How about that Adele theme song, eh?

I love Craig Daniels as Bond, never really liked Pierce Brosnan. Quantum was Boring, but Casino was brilliant!

Love 007.gadget.gif I liked all of the Bonds actually, some more than others.  Loved Daniel Craig at the Olympics with the Queen, priceless.  Am very excited for this new.gifmovie and pre-ordered the CD so I can learn that Adele song.

A woman LOVVVVVEEEES Bond movies...and will definitely go see the new one as soon as possible. Love all the Bonds also, though could probably do without Lazenby.

Lazenby gets a bad rap, he had very big shoes to fill. But his storyline was not bad, I thought his newly married wife ( Diana Rigg no less!) getting killed in front of him some brave storytelling in the Bond series.

Discovered to my horror when I wanted to watch Dark Knight Rises that all the Imaxes in South Africa had closed and the nearest one is in KENYA!

 what? you didn´t watch Daniel Craig´s films? I think he´s probably the best Bond. Casino Royale was great.

oh I already listened Adele´s song. I love her voice.

Critically he is hailed by many as the best Bond, I agree with them! Also love the reboot idea. Intrigued by the younger Q idea. So wanna see how it will work out.

 I do like Daniel Craig as Bond, even better than Sean Connery.  Maybe it's because Bond is more serious and darker now.

@Andrea - I actually watched all Bond films chronologically. I hated Pierce Brosnan and after that I wasn't really interested in seeing Daniel Craig in it. I didn't like him that much back then either, but that changed over time. He's a good actor. I'm glad they took Bond in a darker direction. I'll watch them before going to see Skyfall.

@Aegon - oh that sucks. I'll be thinking of you when I'll go and see it...on October 26th!! Mwahaha, only teasing. I might wait for a bit as well. I'm not an IMAX fanatic, I'll probably watch it in a regular cinema. In the morning, so that no one else will be there.

I didn´t like Brosnan too so I was pleasantly surprised with this new and darker Bond. I´m not sure about Quantum but Casino Royale was really good. Saw "Defiance"? Craig has range as an actor but I think his best performances are not the famous ones.

Yes, yes, Defiance! A great role. And another one that escapes me now, a Brittish movie..ugh, will have to check it out later, I can't remember the name for it now.

Oe Defiance was a good movie! Plus I like the idea of a more muscle heavy bond! Adds to the darker more realistic tone.

Speaking of which Cary, how on earth did No Country for Old Men ever become that successful, it's one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Um, Old Country for Old Men was a very good movie IMO.

Back to Bond, I'm fnally up to speed. Quantum of Solace was just your average Bond movie, but Casino Royale was great. Too bad about Giancarlo Giannini not coming back for the next one.

Well that was sheer awesomeness! freakout
I loved it, it tops all of the others easily in my opinion. Lots of canonical references, beautiful soundtrack, gripping story, good acting, and the best opening credits of any Bond movie ever.
Javier Bardem was insanely good. Bonkers, really. And Q, my lovely lovely man. How I adore thee!

A few spoilers.
