Yeah, and...that might've been just fine :P

When Casino Royale and Batman Begins came out within a year of each other, it felt fresh, taking a more gritty, darker approach to silly material.

But 15 years later, it's very stale, overdone, and frankly, not much fun anymore. I don't really like the Brosnan Bonds or anything, but I would happily welcome the next round of Bond flicks to be that level of self-aware and goofy. I'm done with the mopey.
