"Vesper?" I do hope you gave your parents hell for that.

Daniel Craig.


NOT he the most fantastic fucking Bond that I've ever seen...that movie? Yeah, bitch. THAT'S A BOND MOVIE!!!!

First of all, Bond has never looked like it hurt so much to be Bond.

Certain elements were predictable, to me at least. And then things that weren't...well, I can say I got kinda fooled, but then not. There was at least one good double bluff, which is fitting considering the setting.

I could give two shits about people bitching that it's the first Bond but it's set in present-day (let him drive the goddamn Aston Martin and shut the hell up) and yet Judi Dench is still M. Who gives a fuck, it's Bond and Bond is about two things. Style, and kicking ass. I'd be pissed if Judi Dench weren't in it. The style would have been lacking.

This is the best goddamn Bond film ever, ever, ever. And Daniel Craig is the best goddamn Bond, full stop.

The only clue I can give you is this: every time you think it might be over, it's not even close. And that's a good thing.

And now if you'll excuse me, I think I need to go have sex in about eight different ways. AND THERE WASN'T EVEN ANY ACTUAL SEX IN THE MOVIE!! That's how good it was.

With a review like that, I think I'll have to find clever ways of actually watching this in the theater. I'm so intrigued!

If you get a craving for action, I can suggest nothing better. Or a craving for shoulders...
