MBTI: Raoul Silva- ENTP

Posted in MBTI Rationals, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , on 08/20/2013 by Taylor Holt

Javier Bardem

Of all the Bond villains in the course of his 50-plus year film history, I have to say…Trevelyan is my favorite.

But Skyfall’s Silva’s right there too.

The chaos, the comebacks…the weirdness. Gotta be ENTP, kids. Continue reading

6 Bond Gadgets Reality Would Destroy

Posted in Top 5 Lists, Whatever with tags , , , , , on 12/10/2012 by Taylor Holt


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. And while even the dumbest Bond gadget is better than the best Christmas gift we’ve ever received (a rat), it doesn’t stop the gadgets themselves still being a football field away from sensible in any scenario, save for the scene when the writer wants to finish the script and eat lunch.

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

First “Skyfall” Poster

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , , on 05/18/2012 by Taylor Holt

What’s cool about this? It’s only James Bond walking toward you. But hey, Jimmy Bond is Jimmy Bond, baby, what can you say? You say you’re sorry that’s what, and then you tell him what he wants to know before he shoots you in the kneecap. This Bond will probably shoot first then ask questions after. “After” meaning “after he has sexual relations with your wife, you greedy weapons dealer. Bond did you a favor.”
