“If the opportunity presents itself, you can always go for the shoe poo.”
The panel of peril dash to the bathroom with a glass and a saltshaker, making themselves a wonderful briney drink, before sitting down to watch this week’s film Casino Royale (Martin Campbell, 2006).
James Bond (Daniel Craig) is just starting out his career as a 00 agent. His first mission is to track down the money being wagered by in-between man Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) and attempt to bankrupt him in a high stakes game of poker at the titular casino. Is Bond’s poker face up to the task?
Bond isn’t the only person under pressure to perform as Le Chiffre is under the employ of Mr. White’s (Jesper Christensen) shadowy organisation, who introduce the blood weeping bugger to the Lord’s Resistance Army whose funds he must gamble and win with. Also! Bond is joined on his mission by Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), an agent of the Treasury who may have a more vested interest in the task than she’s letting on ;)
What did the panel think of this week’s movie? How can they improve upon the villain’s masterplan? And who will be anointed this week’s most diabolical?
