I just hope it's better than QOS. Casino Royal was awesome but the last attempt fell so short that there were rumors MGM would scrap future projects.

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there."

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.” “They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Coconut, with your extra credit in the sig, wouldnt it be A M3 since, it starts with M, and not E. It only makes the E sound but its not a E. so does the vowel rule still apply? i dont think it should

EDIT: nevermind, i checked, and asked. its based on the phonetics, not the actual written letters.
cool

Will this be the next Bond car?

The reporters say: “The One-77, which is the first production-ready example made by Aston, will undoubtedly be Bond’s car when Daniel Craig appears in the next flick.”

There's a story to it? I just saw action, action, crashes, guns, action, another crash, and more action.

I'll be seeing this one.

I'll be there. It's Bond. No Brainer.


This is the only information i could find about the plot

Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

I honestly did not think the last 2 Bond's were bad. Could of been better, but in no ways bad.

I do. He's a bit edgier than Pierce but that goes with his younger-reckless style.

That's the whole reason I don't like him at is. Look at the Bond history, all of them are suave and smooth, Craig is like a British Chuck Norris.

I like that he seems like he could actually kick someone's ass in a fight. I never got that from Pierce Brosnan or flabby man-boob Roger Moore.

Yeah but the character has to evolve with the times, I like Craig as he is more of a "badass" than his historical counterparts.

I like the bond character x jason bourne's bad ass'ness.


A lot of the Bond Purists are cheering the same as you though.

Looks good. I like Daniel Craig as Bond. He's the first bond that I've seen that makes it look easy while making it look realistic (by Bond standards). His emotions are subdued enough not appear like acting but noticeable enough that one empathizes with the character.
