Being gently made love to, by Daniel Craig, moments before he blows your brains out with his Walther PPK?

I seem to be asking more questions that actually providng imput, but here we go anyway....the blowing out of brains, yes that I can image, but does Daniel Craig actually do gentle (so to speak)? Pierce Bronson and Sean Connery, no question about it, but Daniel Craig is all sharp edges and coldness.

Obviously, I haven't actually seen Quantum of Solace. All enlightment gratefully accepted.

Clue No. 2

This was last weekend's jaunt-3.5 hours flying time and an overnight stay in an airport away.

Entirely worth the effort and the missed night's sleep.

I haven't sen Q of S, and don't want to look it up. It seems to violate the spirit of the thread.

3.5 hours flying time ... well in a jet, maybe 3,000km, but if it is a small mining centre, a prop plane might get you 1,500 km. Still a long range.

That chap has a slightly swarthy look to him, and it looks like he can dance, so I am still going for South America.
Shot in the dark: Antafogasto, Chile.

I've seen Quantum of Solace It was ok. A good romp. But the first film was better.

Daniel Craig absolutely can and does do gentle. He's been in some fabulous tv dramas over here (Our Friends in the North was a highly acclaimed drama in the 90s and is still referenced as a high point in tv drama). I've seen him in a broad range of stuff, playing very different character types. He's very well-known over here as a serious actor. Daniel Craig the big budget movie star is quite a new phenomenon :P

If you see him in interview he's actually a very gentle man.

Talking of which. Here's an interview from 2007, on the Johnathon Ross show (Rossy is probably the nearest equivalent we have to Letterman).



One of Craig's finest performances was in a little drama called Some Voices, in which he plays a schizophrenic who is struggling to cope with life, looked after partly by his long suffering brother (David Morrisey). His character (Ray) meets and falls in love with a woman. The film is a love story and also a story about brotherly love and responsibility.

Oooooooooooooo! Dana! thanks for those clips!

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm~!

Daniel Craig had me at "Sylvia" - wherein he plays an amazing Ted Hughes.

He's my absolute favorite - quite like you, Dana, with your Dr. Who!!! I LURVE him! So incredibly good looking and smart!

Shot in the dark eh? Apart from the spelling mistake ('a' instead of 'o'), you are ...drumroll...correct.

Any guesses as to where the photo was taken? This was one of my favourite parts of last weekend's trip (which was not Antofagasta, but a city in a neighbouring country)-seeing normal people in normal clothes dancing this particular dance as opposed to the highly sophisticated and polished show that people are used to seeing and expect to see.

yes x 2

We went to a milonguera in Belgrano after missing out on an official tango show. This was at the Armenian club and was pretty much like any other community club I've ever been to (except that it was in the basement and there was a lady in the bathroom selling jewellery). It was mostly older guys with younger women, but there were a few couples who were the same age (see photo).

The next night we went to a salsa club and a couple of members of the group (no names mentioned) got kicked off the dance floor twice for not knowing the steps adequately.
