AIPT Movies Podcast episode 80: No EscApril: ‘Casino Royale’

The month starts off with a modern day classic.

It’s April, so that means it’s time for the AIPT Movies podcast’s “No EscApril” series, where we celebrate the wonder of thrillers! Not quite horror, not quite action, that sweet spot in the middle where danger is afoot, and lives are still on the line! In this week’s episode, Alex, Tim, and Matt discuss Daniel Craig’s first appearance as James Bond, the gritty spy action-thriller, Casino Royale!

Breathtaking stunt work that includes an incredible Parkour chase sequence! Countless exotic locations! That creepy Body Worlds exhibit! A now-classic Bond theme from the late and great Chris Cornell! Disturbing torture methods! Surprisingly tense gambling scenes thanks to veteran director Martin Campbell! A solid cast that includes Mads Mikkelsen weeping blood, Eva Green, Jeffrey Wright, an irreplaceable Judi Dench, and Daniel Craig seamlessly owning the iconic role of James Bond! A movie that adds depth and complexity to a well-established character, showing that reboots/prequels CAN work if done correctly!

In addition, Tim recommends the 2009 anime, Redline, while Alex shares his spoiler-free thoughts on Ricky Stanicky and his beloved Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire!
