“For England, James?”

As much as I hate repeating myself (knowingly), there just isn’t a major variety of ENTJ heroes or anything else other than an extremely charismatic villain when it comes to fiction.

But that’s fine because 006 is the MAN! Continue reading

Visionary, or lady just doing her job? The latter! M’s way of doing things is strict and to the point, just like her type. While everyone else is falling all over for Bond for one reason or another, she’s calling him an idiot to his face telling him how much cleaner the job could have been done.

There’s a reason they’re known as “The Duty Fulfillers” and M displays this quite clearly. Nothing slows her down, nothing is done properly for her, and work is her life. YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS. Continue reading

6 Bond Gadgets Reality Would Destroy

That car…Oh, the car.

There’s no doubt about it, 007 is an amazing man. In fifty years, he’s had time to build up quite a nice little collection of tools, weapons, and other devices for his use in the British branch of awesome spies and soldiers. America has GI JOE.

And while many of Bond’s gadgets are more advanced versions of weapons and tools that government is are actually working on, and others are gadgets that work in theory at the very least, it’s also true that some of his toys are a bit on the stupid side.

Below are six of Bond’s gadgets that reality immediately deem retarded. Continue reading

Movie Review: Skyfall

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , , , on 11/09/2012 by Taylor Holt

Stars: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, Bérénice Marlohe

Rated PG-13 for intense violent sequences throughout, some sexuality, language and smoking, Running time 142 minutes, Action/Adventure

Compare to: Goldeneye (1995), Mission Impossible III (2006)

Well, ladies and gentlemen, here it is. The movie you’ve all been waiting for. Bond is back in his twenty-third movie at his fiftieth year. Though he only looks about forty-two or so. How will this compare to the last two? How will it compare to all others? In the hands of director Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition, Jarhead), there wasn’t really any doubt that it would have the drama a man of twenty-three films needs to keep things interesting. But the action, suspense, and the “Bond-ness…?” Is it all still here?

YES. Continue reading
