Skyfall (UK, US, 2012.) So excited to see this film! The 23rd Bond installment promises to keep the series fresh, 50 years after the debut of the first 007 smash Dr. No. Daniel Craig is back in the title role and there's that scrumptous Adele theme song preceding the film's release to whet our appetites. Half a century on, James Bond remains hip and cool...because he is hip and cool.
Nick Carraway, a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. He is drawn into Gatsby's circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.
Bond girls... Oddly enough my favourite (other than Hallie Berry, but that's for personal reasons) is the American gal who totes the shot gun (during the bar scene) in License to Kill (Timothy Dalton) - She was highly effective at kicking ass.
