 Merry Christmas 2006

This year I decided to go high-tech for the holidays and send out video Christmas cards. We had fun putting this together — who knows, this may even become an annual tradition. I hope you enjoy it.

 Casino Royale

So Daniel Craig’s not as bad as everyone said he was going to be. I’m by no means a fan of the 007 franchise, but I enjoy a good action movie, and this one certainly delivers. I have to wonder how many stuntmen were killed while filming the opening scene. It’s the cusomary chase scene, but this one isn’t in cars or rocket boats, it’s on foot. But don’t think that it is any less suspenseful or spectacular — this one is almost worth the price of admission by itself. Craig does a more than admirable job, and while he may not have the sex appeal of Sean Connery back in the day, he is no less suave than a Pierce Brosnan, or a Timothy Dalton, but somehow more believable in the role. It suits him well. I predict a successful run of sequels for the new Mr. Bond.
