James Bond Theme Song Intros, Part 5
The 21st Century has arrived for James Bond. And you can be sure that there is a lot of hints that the old James Bond might or might not be obsolete with the new Mi5 and Mi6 programs.
Die Another Day 2002
Stars: Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Rosamund Pike. And the bad guys… Rick Yune, Will Yun Lee, and Kenneth Tsang – all kick butt action stunt actors. Also Toby Stephens (Black Sails). And John Cleese shedding some humor to the movie as Q.
“Die Another Day“: Composed by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï. Performed by Madonna.
Casino Royale 2006
Stars: Daniel Craig, Eva Green, and Judi Dench. And Mads Mikkelsen as Le Chiffre.
As you can see by my ratings, I really like Daniel Craig as James Bond. The action scene at the beginning of this movie is what really gripped me. And the rest was good.
“You Know My Name“: Composed by David Arnold and Chris Cornell. Performed by Chris Cornell.
Quantum of Solace 2008
Stars: Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko (Hitman), and Mathieu Amalric.
“Another Way to Die“: Composed by Jack White. Performed by Jack White and Alicia Keys.
Stars: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris. And Judi Dench giving the role as M over to Ralph Fiennes.
This is a little of a heart breaker for me because of the ending with Judi Dench. I really liked her as M. So I was a little bit worried how Ralph Fiennes would take over as the new M.
“Skyfall“: Composed by Adele and Paul Epworth. Performed by Adele.
Stars: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, and Léa Seydoux. And Ralph Fiennes as the new M.
Loved it. I’ll be posting a separate review soon.
“Writing’s on the Wall“: Composed by Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes. Performed by Sam Smith.
