M really doesn't mind you earning a little money on the side, Dryden. She'd just prefer it if it wasn't selling secrets.
For The First Time…
Now look, I'm a hard-core James Bond fan. Some might say a purist.I
make no apologies for believing that Timothy Dalton is the closest
thing we've seen to IAN FLEMING's James Bond.
Last night I saw Casino Royale.
This is, for the first time, the truest interpretation of the character
we have ever seen.
This film is amazing. Totally mind-blowing. From the black and white
pre-titles, to arguably the best titles sequence ever. From the African
free-running chase to the beautiful interiors of London. From Judi
Dench's harassed M, to the super cool Le Chiffre. From the stone-cold
government killer, to the heart broken lover.
Style and sophistication are in abundance.
And I love it.
