How It Should've Ended: Casino Royale

Well, I still haven't seen Skyfall (or Kumquat of Challahs, for that matter), but I did watch Casino Royale. I saw it at the Ziegfeld theater, with good company. The pic was fine, despite massive flaws. Perhaps I was so battered by prior efforts that I was ripe for even modest improvement.

I remember being confused at the start - the basic premise for the film was a pretty big stretch. I followed along, anyway, and it's probably why I largely enjoyed the movie.

But if you want to look at the problems, CR offers plenty. I'm so glad the HISHE crowd cut right to the heart of it. It's far more effective than a point-for-point discussion of every flaw...
