    Maybe he had one too many martinis but Daniel Craig was in full-on truth mode when he seemed to indicate in an interview with the UK’s Time Out that his time as Britain’s favorite spy was over. When asked if the actor, who plays the iconic James Bond for a fourth time in the upcoming "Spectre," would do another 007 film, the answer was salty, to say the least. “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” said Craig. “No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I...

    The fifty-year-old James Bond franchise is one of the most durable movie properties in existence, having reinvented itself with a new lead actor and new creative direction for each generation since Sean Connery originated the role in 1962′s Dr. No. Current franchise star Daniel Craig’s first outing, in 2006′s origin-story/reboot Casino Royale, was a critical and commercial success and for the first time in Bond history was followed by a direct sequel, Quantum of Solace, which was commercially successful but seen as a disappointment by many fans and critics (but not us).

    Renowned Hollywood actor John Travolta is hoping to land a role opposite Daniel Craig in the next James Bond film as he has long fantasized himself playing a villain in the 007 franchise. The 59 year-old actor admits he is a big fan of the movie series and hopes to eventually follow in the footsteps of actors including Christopher Walken, Christopher Lee and Javier Bardem who have all previously played Bond's rogues. The Saturday Night Fever star tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "I'd love to play a bad guy in James Bond." He adds of the films' lead actors, "I have...

    If you really want to understand the vast changes that have occurred in America over the past 50 years, all you have to do is watch James Bond. Back in 1962, the first Bond movie, "Dr. No," was released, catapulting Sean Connery to international stardom. Even President Kennedy expressed admiration for Ian Fleming's fictional British secret agent. Connery's Bond was ultra-suave but amazingly politically incorrect. The guy smoked constantly, drank, gambled and womanized without remorse. He was a rogue and couldn't care less what anyone thought. He was also brutal, liberally exercising his license to kill in the cause...

  • Movie Review: Quantum of Solace

    By some tortured, objective filmmaking standard it might be possible to make the case that Quantum of Solace isn’t the worst James Bond film of all time, but I defy anyone to argue that it isn’t the least satisfying. After all, a bad James Bond film is still a James Bond film. There is that going for it. Invisible cars and Grace Jones have done no small amount of damage but in the smoking, campy wreckage there still lies a James Bond film. Unfortunately, in the smoking, plodding wreckage of Quantum of Solace that scrap of comfort is nowhere to...

    Just got back from seeing, "Casino Royale," the new James Bond movie, the 21st installment. My reaction: Bring back Sean Connery . . . . Bring back Roger Moore . . . . Bring back George Lazenby . . . . Bring back almost anybody (but not Timothy Dalton or Pierce Brosnan). This new dude, Daniel Craig, just doesn't cut it. He's DULL. No charisma, no charm, no suavity and debonaireness. Too old and haggard looking. And he's way too thin (scrawny) and small (hair's too short and ears stick out, too--like Alfred E. Neuman). Very blah. Not sexy. Nice...

    On Dec. 7, 2007, the movie "The Golden Compass," based on the first book in the fantasy trilogy entitled "His Dark Materials" by atheist Philip Pullman will be released in theaters throughout the world. Pullman wrote his fantasy trilogy because he was so upset by the Christian evangelism of C.S. Lewis in his wonderful series of Christian tales entitled "The Chronicles Of Narnia." Pullman is an avowed atheist who has dedicated his life to undermining Christianity and the Church among young readers. The film's release is only another example of a culture spiraling away from faith, a culture into which...

    LONDON – A debate over a movie’s anti-religious antagonism – or lack thereof – is heating up ahead of its upcoming release, with some accusing Hollywood of “castrating” the anti-Catholic themes present in the novel from which it is based. The expected blockbuster, “The Golden Compass,” is named after the American title of best-selling author Philip Pullman’s novel “Northern Lights” and will star actress Nicole Kidman and James Bond star Daniel Craig. The original children’s novel, part of Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” series, rejects organized religion – in particular, the Catholic Church – and critics of the movie version say...

For the physique he spent six hours a day knocking into shape before filming, is more than just well made like, say, David Beckham's; it is chiselled, bulky, imposing, almost threatening. It is what body builders term 'ripped' - devoid of fat, and comprised of layers of toned, protein-fed muscle. As one who...

    I just returned from Casino Royal, all I can say is O U T S T A N D I N G! Don't miss seeing this on the silver screen. It was nice for the franchise to get back to basics after all of the gimmicks, bad one liners and predictable plots/scripts. The action is intense, Bond gets "shaken not stirred". He actually bleeds and has scars for quite a while after his encounters with people bent on his destruction (I don't even want to tell you what the other guys look like) and there are enough twists and turns...

    According to a video report from BBC News, Daniel Craig is under contract to play James Bond until 2012. With an average gap between films of two years, that could mean Craig shoots at least a further three 007 movies after "Casino Royale". Sean Connery squeezed in 5 movies in 6 years in his initial run as 007, Roger Moore bonded 7 times in 13 years, and Pierce Brosnan managed four films in 8 years.

    You'd never catch James Bond having a manicure, but actor Daniel Craig certainly likes to pamper himself - reports ITN. While Bond is fast cars, guns and girls, Daniel Craig is nail files, baby lotion and wet wipes. Dan has shocked workers on new 007 movie Casino Royal by asking for beauty products to be delivered to his trailer. While these demands are slightly feminine, there is nothing ladylike about Dan's body - according to two women who broke into his trailer when he was naked! Dan is sure to have got the fright of his life when the pair...

An insider is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "They've started shooting here and are using the old DB5, which is absolutely sensational. It was shipped over and was ready to go...
