Bond, James Bond
I had my doubts, but Daniel Craig ROCKS as James Bond. When I first heard he was going to be the new one, I was dismayed. A blond Bond? Oh no no no. Bond has be handsome and sauve and cool under pressure, not some rugged looking dude who isn't exactly handsome. But it turns out that rugged works just fine for Bond, actually better than the ones I've seen so far (and let make it clear that I'm not anything like some James Bond afficianado, I can't even remember the plots and certainly can't connect the plots with the titles). There was just enough humor, just enough realistic violence, and some good plot twists and stunts that I did not see coming. I give it an A+.
