Wow Chris. Shocked that you didn’t seen any more Daniel Craig ones after this. Can’t wait to hear what you think about Skyfall and Spectre once you watched them. Daniel Craig is my 2nd favorite Bond after Connery. IMO-with the Daniel Craig films so far I think it has been 50/50. I didn’t think Quantum was horrible, but it doesn’t stick with me like Casino Royale did. I can watch that movie over and over. So really looking forward to next month. I will not discuss Spectre. Will wait till that podcast.

We are recording the podcast for Skyfall tonight. I’m glad Sam Mendes directed it instead of Marc Forster. I like Daniel Craig as a Bond in general. I know some people think he’s a bit short for the part and humorless (which I agree with on that one), but I think he’s probably the most athletic of the Bonds. I just don’t like what the writers have turned his character into…I know I’m in the minority on that one though. You’re more than welcome to come on the show and tell us what you think of him.

I agree he is a tad shorter than previous Bonds, but his onscreen presence doesn’t reflect his height at all. He is a very gruff Bond and I enjoy that. And he is definitely the most athletic and all-in Bond, that was totally made apparent in Casino Royale. I agree with you about them having gotten away from the refined style of Bond. I grew up on Bond from a very early age and have seen every single one, and Bond no matter what his surroundings always gave off a suave feel. I don’t get that from the newer ones. I totally feel they are matching the movies to the times, instead of what Ian Fleming envisioned. And I feel that the age demographic has changed, which I don’t understand since they have so many other movies for them. One day I would love to join the show, unable to for tonight, but come in from a female perspective. Thanks again for the response.

Daniel Craig’s portrayal, in my opinion does match Ian Fleming’s vision, I just feel the movies themselves have gotten away from it. I also own a few of the novels
