The OFFICIAL "Casino Royale" (2006) Thread

Recommended Posts

True, but the benefit of having the complete version is that you can add or remove cues at will. You could easily make a DAD playlist of the more orchestral tracks. The OST is just not the best possible representation of the score.

But I see what you're saying though.

The video is now up on www.mtv.com

Check it out!  I really like the new film clips they have in it!  That shot of Bond crying while he washes blood off his face...wow....I'm so glad Craig got the job!

I just went to it just then and all I can find is the trailer for it and thats it. Where about is the new film clips?

Nice... "Copyrights restrict us from showing this video outside the US" :roll:

And that's what I've waited 5 minutes worth of "content loading - stay tuned and meanwhile watch our latest cd commercial several times in a row" for?

Well, I have already heard the soundtrack release and also checked Cornell's song.

I can tell Arnold made a couple of really interesting and intelligent decisions. Since this is a bond-prequel that shows how bond actually became 007, we never really hear the full monthy norman bond theme until the very end but several pieces of John barry's orchestration coming up here or there and some very slight hints were worked into the underscore. Apparently there is also no gunbarrel. Very clever, because it means we only get to hear bond's theme in full when he actually became 007 by the end of the film. Overall, the score has a rather melancholic feeling with a lot of quiet and slow moving tracks that are nicely orchestrated. There is also plenty of action music, sometimes with rock influences and the use of e-guitars as if arnold wants to musically decribe the character of bond as a young rookie who is in a slight identical crisis (which would also fit in with cornell's rock song). Pretty cool and I am sure the real genius of this score will only be revealed after watching the film. It's clear already that it's not just another brainless and hollow techno-bond from arnold. This time there is actually an idea behind it all. Just may take a while until you get used to this approach.

I agree with your conclusions, but to nitpick, Bond already has his 00-number when the main bulk of the story begins. The two kills required for it will be shown at the start. He's already a double-0 by the time the Royale mission commences. That's how it was in the book, anyway. :)

"There was something under the chair to make it safe."

Does anyone else understand this line? Bond is strapped to a chair and being whipped, but something under the chair makes it safe? I wonder if he stayed in character, or if they stopped doing the shoot.

As long as it dosen't turn into Die Hard with a Tuxedo like Licence to Kill did (the only Bond movie I really don't like - not even Moonraker is that bad in my book), I'm sure this will be an awesome flick.

i actually found Licence to Kill pretty enjoyable. Did not like Live and Let Die, Man with the Golden Gun and Octopussy though. :mrgreen:

I like two Dalton's Bonds very much. They are very well made and their more serious approach was a nice change after somewhat ridiculous Moore episodes. However, my least favourite, or even I dare say the one I really dislike is "Diamands are forever". The only thing I remember to be good was te score.

It has Connery it is, which is always a good thing!

Well ... As much as I am fond of this actor and his Bond portrayal, I don't like in "DaF" that much. He was too old for this role, for my taste (the same goes for Moore in "A View To A Kill"). To some extent (but only to some!) I would prefer Lazenby (sic!) in "DaF" or - it would be even better - to have Moore already ("DaF" was more his type of story, than Connery's).

Well, if you ask me now, I do think that The Living Daylights is the worst Bond movie ever. Dalton was charmless in it, horribly bland villian, rubbish finale and I can't stand that cello girl. :) I have mixed feelings about Diamonds are Forever too...and I can't say I'm too fond of the (overly long) Thunderball, though I was entertained enough.
