"I think as one grows older, he finds that he no longer plays video games for the sake of entertainment, but rather for the stories they tell and the universes they drag the player into. At least that's the primary reason why I still pick up a…"

"I liked Connery's Bond as a kid and thought that Dalton was the worst (I don't count Lazerby, he's not worth mentioning). Then I read the books. I think Dalton was the closest to Flemming's original character (or as close as…"

"I see, that does make perfect sense. A new era of entertainment calls for a change, even in well-established franchises'like James Bond. I look forward to hear your thoughts about Skyfall. "

"Craig's Bond was a bit more like Fleming's -- but was more a response to Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer than anything else.   Bond was the cutting edge for a long time -- the ultimate tough guy spy.  Bourne and Bauer came…"

"Well, a great part of my disliking the movie might have been because I expected something completely different. Craig's portrayal of Bond bore little resemblance to agent I was used to seeing in Bond movies, even if his renewal of the character…"

Skyfall: Let's hear your thoughts!

So the new James Bond movie, Skyfall has been available for screening in most cinemas for a couple of days now. I figure, this being a forum called the art of manliness, there'd be some Bond fans who would like to share their opinions on the latest installment.Personally I have low thoughts of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. The movies got an exceptional amount of hype here in Denmark, due to the fact that Mads Mikkelsen (Le Chiffre) and Jesper Kristensen (mr. White) had prominent roles in…See More

Advice needed on finding a trench coat

Hello there, manly men,During the last few weeks I've been searching the internet for a place to buy a trench coat. The idea of the perfect trench coat surely differs from one manly man to another, but what I am looking for is a black trench coat, preferably not leather. The longer the better. Not quite the signature coat of the Gestapo, nor the gothic-influenced one that Neo wears in the Matrix, I'm looking for what is undeniably a old-fashioned trench coat, not some of that modern…See More
