Time for another group-viewing, this time, it‘s

CASINO ROYALE



https://share-your-photo.com/img/90fa45e341.jpg


London Summertime:       20:00
Paris Summertime:           21:00

LA local time                    12:00


PLEASE  KEEP IN MIND THAT WE ARE ALL STARTING 10 MINUTES LATER !

The 19:00 deadline is set so that everybody has enough time to find their DVDs/Blu Rays, boot their players and get done with the menus and pause right where usually the gunbarrel would begin.

WE ARE STARTING PRECISELY AT 19:10

- Please make sure that everybody has their BluRay/DVD/VCR ready and start the player latest 19:00 GMT to get done with all the dodgy menus.
- PAUSE YOUR PLAYER RIGHT WHERE IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS JAMES BOND THE GUNBARREL REALLY SHOULD BE
- HIT PLAY PRECISELY AT 19:10.

I‘ll post some timecodes during the thread just in case that somebody has messed it up

She's a very pretty woman, that's for sure.  It must also be said, she looks amazing in black and white.  SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is not a good movie but she's outstanding in it (and you see...ahem...a lot of her).

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Seeing these gifs reminds me that she really was perfect casting as Fleming's Vesper, even by looks alone.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

I believe they had to change the advertising for that very reason.

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Controversial opinion but I really don’t get the appeal of Green—it looks like she turned up to set for the day of shooting and was only then briefly told how to act as well as be sexy/seductive  ajb007/takecover

   JTM, with due respect -  There is something wrong with You!    ajb007/lol

Lets just say, it takes a truly exceptional woman to stir my curiosity and Ms Green is a perfect example.
I saw CR-06 at the cinema seven times in the end, and she was def a contributing factor to that.

I think although she looks sexy, sultry and enigmatic, she is a self professed shy geek,
and one with a deliciously naughty playful sense of humour.  Look at the gif of her in the red blouse with white buttons.
- Thank You Gymkata by the way... 
Her eyes sparkle with a naughty energetic sense of fun to rival Jill St John or Dame Judi herself.
   Vesper is a broken character, as denoted in the film.  - By contrast Ms Green is playful entertaining and funny.
Although she joins the film almost halfway through she is a shining spark of vitality, grace and nuance from
start to finish.

Its such a damned shame she is a smoker.   ajb007/crap

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

I have to admit it took me a couple of viewings to warm up to Green. At first I found her Vesper cold and unsympathetic, but then I realized the subtleties of her performance that had eluded me and became a fan. She's a good actor and it doesn't hurt that she's drop dead gorgeous.

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

I’m certainly not saying she’s not attractive—she actually looks shockingly similar to an ex of mine...which makes rewatching CR and other films she’s in, well, a little weird—I just think she’s quite wooden in her acting and overall screen presence. I guess that might just her “thing” though.

21

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Has anyone here ever before seen or heard of someone calling Eva Green's acting "wooden" before?

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

I'm sure you're aware, JTM, that freedom of speech is incredibly imortant and a cornerstone of democracy ...... except when it comes to celebrities and James Bond fandom  ajb007/biggrin

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

To each their own.  In addition to being gorgeous, I also think she's one of the very best actors to ever appear in a Bond film.  She has tremendous range in the role, conveying many conflicting emotions through both her body language/facial expressions and her vocal intonations.  It's a masterful performance, and I would not have blinked had she received awards consideration for her work.

If you haven't seen it, give PENNY DREADFUL a go.  She's amazing on that show.

Re: AJB live commentary on CASINO ROYALE 06

Yes we sure are a emphatic bunch when it comes to our little interest  ajb007/lol  My opinion on a certain actress definitely doesn’t affect my opinion on the film though—CR is still at or near the top of my “list”.
