new James Bond movie - a review
oooooh , ahhhhhhh wowzers yum yum droooool ursula andress eat your heart out
(shamless and pointless ogling now over with)
Well I must say this is probably one of the best Bond movies I have seen in a while ( though the soundtrack sucks on an infinite number of levels)
some like my beloved maman might disagree violently with me for one or more of the following reasons
1) daniel craig looks like a thug (wot!)
2)there are only two bond girls and one dies waaay too soon (fathers complaint)
3) where are the gadgets ? where the hell is Q
4) he's suposed to be in a suit all the time
5) he's supposed to come out of all his fights unscathed not looking like something that just came out of the butchers
well i think that the above reasons are exactly why I liked this film . bond movies were starting to become terribly formulaic , it was about time for a return to reality (just a wee bit)
and the original books.
you see along with a rather insane prediliction for shoes i have i nherited from my father a love for the original james bond novels (we have all of them incidentally) and finally i have seen a film that has the feel of the novels . And a James Bond that is uncanilly like the one of the novels (except for the blond hair)
so thumbs up !
