Casino Royale: I know, I know. Thrashed equine, etc. But just watch the trailer. This one just feels different.

Note: Yes, I realize the nearly unforgivable sin of making Bond play Texas Hold 'Em in a tuxedo. It's gonna be hard to overcome that. But, just maybe...

Well, Americans are just too dumb to figure out what's going on if they play chemin de fer.

Maybe I'll see it, since the last semi-reboot (For Your Eyes Only) was the last one I enjoyed. Granted, 'Eyes' wasn't introducing a new Bond or attempting to go back to the beginning. It was, however, a return to the old values (sadism, cold-war chauvinism, etc.) that got lost amid the wry martini jokes.

It remains the best Bond since (ready the heresy alarm) On Her Majesty's Secret Service -- also a semi-reboot, and itself better than the bloated late Connery garbage.
