A little something I've been working on! Something in the style of Deathly Hallows, what if Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace were filmed back to back and they were released in Parts, like Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2.

Comments and feedback greatly appreciated!

Very, very good indeed :tup: :tup: :tup:

(Noticed, unless I blinked and missed it, the old chestnut "The name's Bond, James Bond" wasn't included. Was that because it was too obvious, done to death times many? I only ask because one scene I might have included was the end of CR, when Mr White gets shot and we finally get "the line".)

Good job. But at the same time, it makes even more obvious the big differences and distance among these two movies.

Good job on making the color timing somewhat similar between the films... the overly orange coloring throughout the majority of 'Quantum' is just ridiculous, especially when watching the films back-to-back.

I was also a bit confused by the October 2008 date for 'Quantum', but after doing some research I realized it's because I'm a Yank.... and we didn't get the movie until November 14th. I knew something seemed wrong about it, but it's just a difference in regional release dates.

Really great stuff, Mharkin, as usual. You have a real talent for this.

QUANTUM OF SOLACE always looks really great in trailers. Shame it's such a pain to sit through as a full-length film.
