Casino Royale
Casino Royale (2006)

After a 4 year hiatus, the producers of the Bond series took the opportunity to completely revamp the series with Daniel Craig stepping in as Bond for the first time. All continuity with the earlier movies was dispensed with, and Craig plays Bond as a brand new 00 agent in this adaptation of Fleming's first Bond novel. It certainly is a fresh approach. Craig is certainly the most physical Bond, and this film focuses on really raw, intense and realistic action sequences. It's one of the best Bond films. Unfortunately, Craig's tenure in the role has been extremely uneven.

A conservative young schoolteacher decides she's wasting her youth, and splurges on some stylish clothes and goes out to hit the town. To avoid the unwanted advances of a gangster, she steals his car unaware that the corpse of a murdered gangster is in the back seat along with some evidence that would incriminate his boss. She encounters a wealthy young man hitchhiking who helps her avoid both the cops and gangsters who are pursuing her. This strange little screwball comedy packs a ton of plot and characters into a mere hour. It's based on a story by Dalton Trumbo.

Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce and Terence Stamp drive halfway across Australia to put on a drag show at a Casino at Alice Springs. It's a very amiable character piece that coasts a long way on it's excellent cast, overcoming a lot of pretty mediocre dialogue in the process. It's almost impossible to dislike this film ... it's heart is in the right place, it features a lot of infectious music, and Bill Hunter even shows up.
