      That is probably true, but I have never seen the originals and some aspects of the Brosnan films seemed to campy for me. As for the Bourne feeling, I love the them, so that is probably why the new Bond films appeal to me.

      I'm not a true Bond fan so I'm probably not the most qualified to comment.

      True of QoS, but Casino Royale is considerably better than anything the Bourne trilogy has to offer.

      Traditional Bond movies have a lot more cheesy yet funny... and unbelieveably believable scenes that actually work out... almost borderline porn... kinda like the scene in casino royale where he wins the aston martin from the bad guy... and gets it from valet and cons the bad guy's girl into the car... "wanna go back to my place?" "sure" drive a circle and right back at the hotel... and end up getting the girl back in his room making out...

      the old bond would've ****ed her first before leaving for miami. this bond didn't. lol

      Can't wait for Bond 23! My only wishes for #23 would be a bad-ass villain and slightly more focus on Bond's Q-issued vehicle. Overall, Daniel Craig has been fantastic. I grew up with Roger Moore, then Timothy Dalton before going back to revisit the Sean Connery era. Throw in 1 for Lazenby. Pierce Brosnan came and went but all in all, I respect each of them for what they brought to the Bond character.

      My standout picks of the pack for the Connery era:
      From Russia With Love
      Goldfinger

      Moore:
      The Spy Who Loved Me

      Dalton:
      The Living Daylights (if I had to pick)

      Brosnan:
      GoldenEye

      Craig:
      Casino Royale
      2003 Acura MDX
      2006 BMW X3

      -Live and Let Die WRONG
      -Moonraker (cheesy as hell and a total riff on the Star Wars phenomenon) ...YUP
      -A View to a Kill CORRECT, BORING AND CRAPPY
      -License to Kill TOTALLY WRONG, THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST.

      Those were truly, truly awful. Some might argue that a couple of the Brosnan movies belong there, too, but he's one of my sentimental favorite Bonds since he got screwed out of the role back in the 80s by NBC.

      I'm really looking forward to the new one and I hope that it lives up to CR.

      Oh, and I hope that they finally resolve the Vesper Lynne (sp?) stary arc. Too much time has passed now and I doubt most people care. It's going to be mighty tedious if 23 doesn't put the dirt on her coffin.
      The worst bond films (in addition to the ones you mentioned):
      Diamonds are Forever (campy and a horrible way to send off the best bond)
      Die Another Day (felt like a goddamned shwarnehnegngner movie)

      Most of Brosnan's films were pretty unforgettable...Goldeneye was awesome, and Tomorrow Never Dies was good, but the rest were clunkers.

      for what its worth, the best bond films:
      Dr.No
      Goldfinger
      OHMSS
      The Spy Who Loved Me
      For Your Eyes Only
      Licence to Kill
      Goldeneye
      Casino Royale

      OHMSS? I can't agree with that one. FYEO was the first Bond movie I saw in the theater. It was boring then, and I think that it's boring now. I was bitterly disappointed when he rolled up in a new Lotus Esprit, and and instead got chased on skis. GAH! I think they ran out of money. I really liked Diamonds Are Forever, but maybe just because I'm partial to Jill St John in a low rise bikini. I always wondered if she was a natural red head.

      Official title is Skyfall. Begins filming November 7th. Comes out in the US November 9th, 2012.

      Joining Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Director Sam Mendes were members of the cast of SKYFALL, including: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe. The filmmakers also announced Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw.

      In SKYFALL, Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

      I love For Your Eyes Only, that has to be one or Roger Moore’s best, Plus the sound track was rocking in the chase scenes. I completely disliked Die another day. that ending was just way to over the top. It's kind of like a “Bruce Willis” standing on the wing of a jet type action scene. It does not belong in these movies. To fake.

      So far, I completely enjoy Daniel Crag as the new bong, he brings an awesome hardcore tough guy approach. after quantum of solace, I would like to see what he does next.

      Die Another Day
      Rank is an appropriate description for The World Is Not Enough. It's fine until 2/3 of the way into the movie when Denise Richards shows up. Her acting is painful. I don't care how large your breasts are, it can't save an awful acting job. Sophie Marceau is pretty easy on the eyes, though.

      Netflix streaming video now has all the Bond movies that are more than 10 years old. The last Pierce Brosnan movie and the two Daniel Craig movies aren't available.

      The Daniel Craig Bond is more true to the books than the comic book Bonds. In the first couple of Sean Connery movies, James Bond isn't a very nice guy. He kills people. He uses people. The first 3 Sean Connery Bond movies were my favorites until Daniel Craig's Casino Royale.

      I have incredibly high hopes for this one. If this doesn't kick the crap out of QoS, I'll be shocked.

      The Daniel Craig movies are more true to the Ian Flemming books. In the books, James Bond wasn't a nice guy. He killed people. The original Doctor No was the closest to the books. The movie series morphed into a comic book Bond. The Daniel Craig Casino Royale opens with Bond killing somebody in a mens room with a really brutal fight.
