I just watched Casino Royal and Quantum of Solace again in chronological order and had a revelation. The first time I saw Casino Royal shortly after it was released I didn't think much of it. A year or what ever later I then saw Quantum of Solace and thought it was pretty boring. I recently watch both of them recently in chronological order and have come to realize the new Bond series if freaken awesome. I really like how they made bond a more complex and dramatic character with a history, rather than some guy who goes around shooting people and crawling in bed with brauds. The best part though is the new story line, well I guess I should say that these movies actually HAVE a story line. All the old bond movies were just rehashes of Dr. No. Evil guy wants to take over the world, bond comes in, kicks everyone's ***, and then has lots of sex. The continuous development of the Quantum Organization and their aspirations of controlling governments and industry "from behind the curtain" instead of trying to blow up the world with a hyper death ray I think makes for a much more intriguing plot. Anyway, the new series is very well written with an excellent story line. I guess I just had to watch it twice to realize it. It's to bad it got such bad reviews because I really hope they make a third. End of rant.
