Forums - Movies & TV - Casino Royale 1954 Review

MontanaHatchet said:
Excellent review Amp, loved reading it. I especially enjoyed reading the comparison between the recent Casino Royale film and this one. Seems Le Chiffre was a strong point in both films. I also really liked the part where you mentioned the final poker hand in the 2006 version.  Easily the most unlikely thing to ever happen in a Bond movie.

Great job Amp, keep it up!

What did you find so unlikely about it? Haven't seen it in a while, but I don't remember it being rediculously out of the ordinary. Was it the hand he got, or something else?

yes i like that 1951 casino royale as it is bonds first visual appearance,so must be acknowledged,its just more of a screen play we might say over here,it was just for tv anyway wasn't it,

roger moore was my bond growing up,the spy who loved me,moonraker,for your eyes only(some great songs there too,i love the carly simon bond song) would be my introduction to bond at teh cinema,when you used to wait until the end credits and it would say james bond will return in octopussy,good times

so it is differnet for everyone roger moore was cheesy but at least it worked with him and he is in some serioulsy good bond films,i'd say,i think it was a bit unfair on dalton,he tried a revamp from moores cheesy bond like craig got but no one was ready for it,i don't think any of them are bad and fair play if you make it as james bond,who are we to criticise that,haha.didn't dalton lose his licence to kill,its quite a good story,i think the other is a drug boss but i can't rightly remember if there is any film series that all blur into one its bond films,there are so many

now brosnan got all the media love for rebooting bond and to be fair 1990-96 is what i call my drug years,a blackout if you will,so he went under my radar as many films did in that period and i had to watch them later,so i missed his big kick off as bond,i look forward to getting to know the brosnan bond,i kind iof remember tomorrow never dies with prryce as the baddie and bits of goldeneye but thats about it and carlyle with the bullet going into his brain,a good touch for a villain but they sure aren't no man with the golden gun,hehe

I was born in 1982, but still grew up on Sean Connery. Maybe it was because my Dad was a Connery fan, I do not know. For some reason I skipped all the Roger Moore stuff until I was older. Now it all just seems too cheesy. Maybe if I would have watched it back then it would have been better.

i agree,i saw connery too on the telly,but i was talkkiing about the cinema really and i admit he is very cheesy

that is also what i mean't to say after dalton the bond songs jsut went unto lunacy,why oh why mess with suc a beautiful concept,for me the new casino royale was almost a perfect reboot,even the titles were up to standard but why have that song,i'm not saying they are all bad but this is bond,you know if you aren't a classy singer you shouldn't be touching a bond film in my opinion

I agree that Daniel Craig has done a much better job bringing the series out of the past, compared to Brosnan. Less crazy gadgets (if you want gadgets that are actually close to real check out M.I 4) and more realistic ones to fill in its place. Out of all the bonds I would say that Daniel Craig is the toughest, "as Amp would say". Sadly he does not seem to be able to transition out of the role in his other roles so well. He frowned and looked cool as ice throughout all of Cowboys and Aliens as well. At least he plays a great blond haired bond!

that reminds me i haven't seen cowboys and aliens yet,it has harry ford in too doesn't it,craig wanted to go back to the cold bond i think,but casino royale is jsut a good film too,and has a stunning eva green in it who i adore,i love the line she says when they are on the train or something and she says so james do you see women as meaningful pursuits or disposable pleasures,a great line for me

not sure why they wanted to start quantum of solace 15mins/1 day after casino roayle or whatever is going on there but naybe i am wrong,i've watched quantum of solace but don't really remeber what is going on apart from that building in the desert or wherever



                                                                                                                                        Above & Beyond

   

I just hope that after Quantum , they stay away from the two part Bond movies. Just Give Craig one movie to do his thing. Craig is much better than most of the other options they were looking at for Bond. So I hope we see him in a few more.

Quantum of Solace was a direct sequel?

Ok now I'm not even sure I've seen it.
Wait, did Casino Royale end at the bit where Bond phones the cream suited guy then shoots him in the leg from afar?

Yes, and that was the best scene in that movie in my opinion. Then it basically starts out there in the next one. That is where I will leave you...
