Casino Royale opens this month and it's the first 007 movie in 21 years I'm not gonna see.  Anyone else turned off?

I haven't seen Casino Royale just yet.  Until it hits Netflix, it just doesn't exist for me.  The last film I paid to see in a theater was Superman Returns.  Smiley  Speaking of which, I'm surprised no one's mentioned the Superman ties to James Bond -- Tom Mankiewicz, Cary Bates, Teri Hatcher stupidly miscast as a Bond Girl, etc. 

He said he gave 100 percent, David. He said he gave everything he could. If you are a fan, how could you ask for more than that?
Someone saying they're giving 100% is refreshing to me, after hearing so many folks speak of giving 110% (shades of Spinal Tap!).  When Pierce Brosnan was cast as Bond, everyone cheered.  When Daniel Craig was cast as Bond, everyone jeered.  I can't blame Craig for being snippy, especially with the British press.

Brosnan got lost in dreary over-production, and really wasn't allowed to bring Irish charm or Remington Steele into the picture the same way that Roger Moore channeled his Simon Templar and army officer past.  I'd have liked to have seen what Brosnan could've done if Bond had been more explicitly 'rebooted' for him.
