    New James Bond, another coup, Khao San Road and more bloody techie probs..

    Went to see the new Bond movie last night. Opted for luxury seating at the cinema, a pair of wide reclining seats with drinks tray and headrest. I like Daniel Craig already but still went with an open mind about his suitability as Bond.

    The good news is, he's bloody brilliant! One of the best Bond movies for a long time, especially after the last effort that was just off the scale of stupidity. Casino Royale (2006) is a breath of fresh air. Raw, gritty and 100% more realistic than previous films. Personally I've always been a big fan of Roger "eyebrows" Moore, despite the cheesiness he brought to the role, but Craig looks like being the best ever. Great cars, great fighting, great women, respectable amount of one liners and no ridiculous invisible cars. You can believe that this guy is an assassin. One comment though, the Bond song is not up to much and doesn't seem to have the words "casino" or "royale" in it anywhere. Is it me or is a Bond theme better when performed by a woman?

    It seems there has been a reshuffle within the Thai military government, in order to counter a counter-coup. So having had yet another Thai coup there were plans afoot to have a counter-coup to counter the coup that had already couped (if that is the right word). Thailand is a funny old place. Whilst we're living under the threat of yet more coochi coups dear old Taksin is skipping around the world playing golf and having a gay old time.

    Still have movie cam problems. I can take film from the Sony SR60E off and on to the laptop and that is fine. But then it goes pear shaped. The clips play but I can't edit them anywhere without losing the sound. Frustrating!

    Here are some pics from the do at Khao San Road the other night

    I'm glad to hear that, for you at least, Mr. Craig proved all his haters wrong and just hit this one out of the park .. I'm going to see it later today, and just can't wait!

    It's a great effort. I really think he could be the best Bond to date. Great film!
