Casino Royale

Casino Royale ★★★★★

Watching these a bit out of order and incidentally the best ones first, but god damn. Definitely the grittier of the bunch which seemed to be a running theme for films of the era, but it makes for such a good spy thriller. 

Also the ending is just REALLY fucked up? Don’t get me wrong, it’s really good, but the entire time I was watching it I was thinking, “Huh this is really really dark for Bond.” 

Also just hit me that Craig played Bond for 15 years. He’s the Bond I grew up seeing in a theatre, so it’ll be interesting to see what that transition to a new actor is like. And how long they’ll wait?
