The one where he's trapped inside that machine at the health spa.

Sorry- confusing it with the traction machine. Dear me, I am terrible today!

Apologies to all.

Alrighty. I think we've gotten* to the heart of it now. Whew!

Yes, I can see a similarity in approach.

Marty understands Bond very well, in the same sence that Trence Young did back in 1962. CR was amazingly well directed especailly compared to GE. GE is awesome and defined the Brosnan era, all Bond films since have tried and failed to top it (except the Craig movies of course). The film caught the gritty Soviet darkness, the greys and blacks weigh heavily on the film. The movie is well cut together and the action is very well done. In CR the film itself feels like an old 60's movie, the dialogue is razor sharp and the colours fill up the screen. I was shocked when I first saw CR, as I thought I was about to watch a moody dark film in the vien of LTK, but got something more akin to those old Connery movies. The look of Madagadscar, the Bahamas, the Casino, how stunning Venice looks. It's all so captivating and compleing. But in terms of proformaces...well Craig goes wothout saying, he is by far the heartbeat of the story, all the actors are giving such great turns as there all trying to keep up with Daniel Craig. He holds the camera so well, hense why those casino scenes have the most suspence. Cr is truly quite something. I'm glad it's become something of a cult classic over the last 2 years.

I really hope Marty comes back next time.
