The new James Bond has been unveiled and it's Daniel Craig. I've no idea what he's like but the Bond films have a firm place in my heart and I like to think of myself as a leading expert on the Bond films (ask me, I'll tell you). The Guardian reports an interesting quote:
Director Martin Campbell said the next film would be "definitely darker, more character, less gadgets".
I hope so. They were getting too silly. The last one had arguably the best first half (when captured as a political prisoner) and the worst second half (ice palace and all that stuff) of a Bond film. Anyway Daniel Craig is going to have his work cut out if he's going to come close to Pierce Brosnan and, of course, good old Roger Moore.
