Bond...

Casino Royale, spoiler free.

The title sequence was gorgeous, just fucking gorgeous. I would have paid just to see the titles. Really.

It only got better from there.

I have high hopes for this writing/directing team in the future.

And then there's Daniel Craig. In squarecut aussie-rower swim trunks. Or naked. Or dressed.

Yum.

My only bitch? They switched from Baccarat to Poker, to make the movie more accessible. Makes sense. The Vesper recipe, though? It's still using the aperitif wine from the book, Kina Lillet. A wine that hasn't been made in decades; they changed the brand name long ago and the recipe almost 20 years ago. If they had switched to Lillet Blanc, it would have been reasonable and obtainable.
