Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was not really a Bond fan until Craig, with this exception of Pierce Brosnan, but that was only because I entertain the possibility that we may be related.  I steered clear of Bond mostly out of feminist disgust.

I like the Craig character.  I know he's not the most suave of the Bonds (my mother favored Sean Connery).  But the combo of the moodiness and those shoulders - swoon...

To see the real Brosnan, you must see Matador

First sighting in the Long Good Friday where he's in what must be one of the best endings in film...

Now I must see that movie... I once saw its ending, just this part you posted. All I realised was that Bob Hoskins is a great actor...

I first noticed Bob Hoskins in Felicia's Journey.
