    Texas hold 'em poker replaced baccarat as the game of choice for this adaptation of Casino Royale, probably because 21st-century American audiences generally have no idea what baccarat even *is*, and the World Series of Poker is phenomenally popular.

      Hmmm, have sex with the hot chick, or prevent a terrorist bombing? Good to see Bond, despite his reputation, *does* have his priorities in order.

        When MI6 has serious grounds to believe that someone finances terrorism, they won't arrest him. Instead, they let him play poker and enable him to win even more money. Heck, they won't even rig the tournament!

          The British government doesn't care what MI6 does, it cares about what they get photographed doing.

                Though overall the film is much, much more realistic than Bond films have been in the past, Bond still has an *insane* ability to grip things very well here.

                      Le Chiffre obviously likes to check out the guys. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

                        The Body Works display always creeped me out. Good choice of a venue for the deadly confrontation between Bond and Dimitrios.

                            The part of the movie between the time Bond wakes up in the hospital and the time Vesper hands over the briefcase was kinda slow and boring, especially considering the rest of the movie was so good. Bond's really gonna settle down with a woman and leave MI6 for good? C'mon, we know better.

                              This is one of those rare Bond films in which Bond has sex with only one person, and with a person he's actually in love with, no less. Not that Solange didn't try to get into his pants.

                                I loved the half-smile Bond had when the terrorist triggered the bomb and realized, too late, that it was strapped to him.

                                  Poker dealers usually have to show everybody at the table how their cards can make a hand.

                                    For his first kill, Bond prefers to shoot your gun rather than you.

                                            When your balls itch and you don't have a free hand available, they HAVE to be scratched by any means necessary, even if it involves swinging a weight tied to the end of a rope into them at a high rate of speed.

                                                MI6 runs really poor background checks on fancy girls who carry their moneys.
