I love this movie so very much and this was a great episode. I'm also one of those few people that really enjoys Quantum of Solace as well. You almost have to watch those movies as one longer film. You get the buildup, the betrayal, and then the revenge. It's actually a great storyline that I hope people start to appreciate more.

Canon! Matt Gourley was a terrific guest. I really loved hearing his take as a Bond fan. Love the comparisons to Indiana Jones and John McClane. I kind of felt that the runway truck fight was an homage to Raiders. Eva Green is the best Bond girl ever. I would have liked to have heard your opinion of Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter. I'd never heard of Matt's podcast but now I'm definitely going to subscribe.

Canon! This is a fantastic movie through and through. I knew it would be my answer before I even started listening. If it has to be this should be the only Bond in the canon.
Yes. Yes. Yes.

Not canon. Thunderball is a better choice, if only only Bond film can be in the Canon.

Definitely canon. Easily the best Bond movie and one of the all-time great action/adventure films.
