Casino Royale

We LOVED the movie... not to mention the whole Gold Class experience. We did the full 3-course dinner with drinks, which would normally have made us choke at the cost, but luckily we received a gift card for Christmas that took care of most of the bill. I did indulge in one drink, a lovely glass of Freixenet, but then stuck to water. Yes, it probably should have been a martini, but I do love bubbly things.

There's nothing nicer than sprawling in a big comfy recliner, watching a movie on the big screen, while minions scurry around bringing you food and drinks. Might try it at home - I'm sure I can train the kids to cook and wait on us, if I beat them enough.

But back to the movie. Daniel Craig definitely plays a different, rougher, earthier James Bond, and I like his 'down and dirty' character. Did I say rough? He seemed to spend an awful lot of the film bleeding all over the place.

As for the man himself, I spent the entire movie trying to decide if he's actually attractive or a bit repulsive. I do LOVE those blue eyes - but there's something not quite right about his body. I can't put my finger on it, but his torso just looks odd to me. I discussed it with Bike Boy over a coffee after the film, but we couldn't come up with a definitive answer on what the problem was. Anyone?

hear hear! fanbloodytastic bond movie, i was surprised how much i enjoy it.

i couldn't decide if i fancied him or not. sometimes i thought, "hell yeah!" but then he would do the pouty face too many times. and you're right, i dunno if the shoulders are slightly too bulbous or something? i can't put my finger on it. still, i am enjoying the down and dirty bond :D

Mmmm... now you mention it, he seems a bit overinflated or something. Definitely not in proportion.

I haven't seen it yet... coz I'm not sure if he's my cup of tea or not :) I have heard its good tho. May have to check it out now, just to see what's 'wrong' with his bod lol

I think he's kind of boxy - his waist doesn't taper at all. But it's more than that - his chest looks short and his abdomen long. Or something.

Just weird proportions.

I'm putting my vote in for not attractive. Which is odd, because athletic, lean blondes are TOTALLY my "type". But as you say Kek, he is very square around the ribs, and his chest is too high.
BWAHAHAHAHA - picky, or what?

Kek said...

Picky? Yeah, I was thinking the same thing myself. It's not like we're ever that critical of real people in our lives.

I'm sure I never picked a partner based on his waist taper, or how symmetrical he was.

Ah, what the hell - the guy walks around semi-naked in front of millions of people, he's gotta expect criticism.

Hmm, I think it is because he's boxy, like a Volvo :P

At least we've now got a fit Bond, someone who is convincing in the stunts they do. I must say it is a big improvement, and I love his eyes, but I'm not sure about the body either...

Going to see it tonight- in about half an hour! I will do a critical analysis of his middle section and give you my assessment! lol

linda said...

I think he was round shouldered and that made him appear a little odd shaped. Funnily enough I didn't enjoy the movie much at all. The violent stuff was over done and I couldn't watch the torture bits!
