59- 007 Casino Royale (Michael)

It's the origin to the secret agent that's already been around for like 50 years. We watched Daniel Craig's first entry in the Bond series in Casino Royale this week. Sit back and listen to us recount iconic scenes like bantering back and forth with Judi Dench's M, even though he officially first meets her in Goldeneye, which takes place in our past but his future, even though it's the 90s but this is 2006? The timeline of this series confuses me. But nonetheless, we go back to Bond's roots in this film as he's just been promoted to 007 and we'll see why the backstory behind how he treats women, learning how to work as an agent, and the UNFORGETTABLE scene that sets up Goldfinger's arc as a villain. Some people complain Craig's Bond films lack the flashy gadgets we've come to expect in the series, but in this installment James must trade those in for the fanciest gadget of all, the Heart of the Cards.  That's right, we're beating the bad guys by playing Poker, ladies and gents. Just poker. At least with Yugioh we'd have the Shadow Realm.

Joining us once again is Shea Jones, who's even MORE qualified to talk to us about James Bond this week. Not only is he a 007 afficianado, but he's also a real life Poker expert. He'll demystify the game for us and go into exactly how they messed up in portraying one of his favorite games on screen.






58- 007 Goldeneye (Steven)

Kapow! That wasn't a punch, that was the sound of a Walther PPK shooting down your sights. That's right, we're finally diving into a true 90s classic, 007 Goldeneye! We ain't talking about the N64 game, though that's a classic in its own right. We're talking about the film behind the game. Starring Pierce Brosnan and the chick from X Men. You know what, why didn't she use her psychic powers at all this movie? Has she not discovered her mutation yet? This makes no sense.

Steven's the one being derocked, as he's only seen Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, so now he'll finally understand what was happening in all those N64 levels as a kid! Joining us this week is a connoisseur of James Bond, our pal Shea Jones! He's seen all the Bond movies and knows them forwards and backwards, so he's the perfect guide for Steven's many questions about M eye 6. That's how you spell it, right? Oh, and something about videotapes. Duh!
