A Movie Ranking: Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig has become an actor whose films I’ve started to enjoy and I thought it would be fun to highlight him for this week’s A Movie Ranking. So, let’s start this ranking.

5. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Angelina Jolie in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)

I saw bits and pieces of this film over a month ago and I was like, “What’s this?” I love the recent Tomb Raider game and the newest Tomb Raider movie isn’t great but next to this it looks like The Avengers compared to Justice League. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Daniel Craig

My First James Bond Movie: ‘Casino Royale’

I love movies and as an avid movie lover, of course, I know about James Bond. Who doesn’t? However, I have never seen a single James Bond movie…until today. And that James Bond film just so happened to be one of the best ones and the debut of Daniel Craig’s take on the “devilishly handsome British agent” known as 007/James Bond: Casino Royale.

I love action movies and I am a HUGE fan of the Mission: Impossible movies and I really like John Wick films as well. James Bond was a whole other ball game. It’s basically the Mission: Impossible films except filled with romantic subplots that act as side scenes between the action. I found myself riveted by the storyline in Casino Royale, mainly the romantic drama toward the end of the film that had me legitimately transfixed to the screen. By the time it went off, I began to understand why people like these movies and this character so much and I now have an interest in seeing Skyfall eventually.

However, I will always be a loyal Ethan Hunt fan. Tom Cruise brings the IMF agent to life as he performs stunts that will BLOW. YOUR. MIND in the later films. And Keanu Reeves is the ultimate assassin as he kicks serious butt for a couple of hours in a very violent fashion.

I’m just glad that my first James Bond experience was such a good one.

I’m giving Casino Royale 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It was a pretty entertaining action film and that’s all anyone can ask for really.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
