We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We see, on average, 1.3 movies per year, so we are not experts. But this new one is good.
After 40 years of seeing every enjoyable Bond film, this one preserves most of the Bond atmosphere (beaches, pretty gals, tuxedos) but dispenses with most of the dated stuff, like car chases, boat chases, helo chases, shaken not stirred, and gizmos (and, alas, Q died). And this one makes Bond a bit less of a cartoon character (he falls in love, he is overly-trusting, he bleeds). Still, an excellent male role model.
5/5 barks from the Bird Dog - a memorable thriller.
If you say so...still miss Connery. Our parents piled us three of us puppies in Carter's PJs w feet into the back of the Ramber station wagon and drove 20 miles from the farm to the drive in to see the early James Bonds....Most unsuitable and most exciting for the young! Couldn't quite see that Ursula Andress belonged to the same species as my mom in her Sears farm special belted shirtwaist dress as she canned 1000 jars for winter. Would rather look like Ursula than have a job! Great flicks...next weekend's treat I guess...
