I was going to watch a movie to get my mind off the cigars. Well, about 20 minutes in the movie Bond goes to Cuba. :r Yes, you can guess the rest. I was wondering about those cigars, cant remeber their name, have to check it up later/tomorrow. Anyway it was mad by a tobacco-leaf that was very bad for the health. Cant remember the leafs name either. Thats whats happend when your trying to think of other things then cigars.

I didnt liked the movie that much. It wasnt a very typical Bond-movie, I like the ones with Roger Moore better.

Cant stop thinking of those cigars... :)

Ugh....

I'd have to agree...the new bond movies are going down their own slippery slope. Can't complain about Brosnan though. I think he makes a good 007, but the writing isn't what it used to be. However, Sean Connery is THE James Bond, though Moore did have a few good ones.

Happen to see those 007 Die Another Day humis? The shops around here were selling them for upwards of $700.

The cigars that the cuban man was smoking was called Delectados and was made of the Valado-tobacco, that s very bad for your health and is a very slowburning tobacco... It never goes out...

I have a question here.
Were the outdoor shots of Pierce Brosnan really taken in Havan? They really looked like Costa Rica to me.

A few reasons that this movie wasnt a "real" Bond-movie:

1. The love-scenes. If you want to see more rent a ****-movie.
2. In the beginning when he gets tortured. No one but Rambo had survived that kind of torture. And Bond doesnt get tortured in any other movie, its just not Bond-style. They just try to kill him in all different sorts of ways - thats it!
3. No really BAD GUY. What the hell was the fencing-scene all about anyway?
4. Bond would never show up at the Hotel in the state he was in. He always shows up in a suite or a tuxedo - thats the Bond-way.
5. No gambling scene(s)/casino scene(s).

I could go on... but instead I say something that was kind of Bond-ish. When he got to the Hotel-room in Hong-Kong and shaved of his long beard and the Bollinger-bottle laid nearby with a a glass filled with champagne. I think that scene was a REAL Bond-moment but it lasted just a few seconds when he suddenly realised that he was watched and filmed by some other agents behind a mirror...

And one last thing, not mentioning that M is now a female , Q played by John Cleese (known from Monty Python), I mean its really hard for Bond to beeing funnier than him it just doesnt fit. And that invisible car...

Otherwise I think that Brosnan looks very much like Bond should look like and probably act to, like a gentleman.
