Bond another day - SkyFall

Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie. I haven’t seen it, not because I am not a fan of Daniel Craig, nor I think that he looks more like a Russian than a British spy, I haven’t seen Skyfall because I think Casino Royale wasn’t a good James Bond movie and Quantum of Solace was even worst.

I love James Bond movies since I was 6 or 7 years old the first time on TV. I saw Sean Connery doing his thing flying with a jet-pack and because of Sean, I always thought women love chest hair. And then, we have Roger Moore, ’til today I still think Octopussy have the best pre-title opening where Bond flies a little plane through an open hangar. Real stunt, no computer, this James Bond of the late 70’s and 80’s have all the gadgets to play with, a car that dives into the water like a submarine and even saved the day up on a space station just like Luke Skywalker. He also taught me to move my eyebrows when talking to women. Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan were both great and I actually think Dalton was a very “real” James Bond, watch “the living daylight” you will see what I mean.  what about the Aussie James bond? he looked so dumb, I thought I was watching The Naked Gun, lucky for us he was only been in one Bond film. Thanks to Brosnan wanting more money the studio had to drop him and picked Daniel Craig after years of searching, they said they have found the new 007. To be honest compared to all Bonds Daniel does have the best body and the director makes sure we see the point so they gave Daniel a whole walking out of water at the beach scene. I don’t know what do you think but I thought I was watching a wrong movie but then again maybe I did .. women audience might love the new James Bond and Yes he is not a good looker, look at that body well at least the producer Barbara Broccoli think he is hot, but there are quite a few actor can play James who have a good body with a better face, I just don’t understand why it had to be Daniel? 
James Bond movie should be lavish, romantic and a bit of fun with cheeky dialogue –
Bad guy: You seem to have this nasty habit of surviving.
James Bond: You know what they say about the fittest.
Today our hero got his clothes taken off, his balls sack got hit by a villain,
Bond: I've got a little itch, down there. Would you mind? …
Was that the only way to turned the tortured around? because you are enjoying your balls being attack? When you think about it maybe that was a hidden message. We have your balls James and you can’t do anything about it. I know it’s painful to watch but you have to like it. 

Yes our new Bond can’t play poker, loses all the money in the first round and ended up he needs the help from the American Spy. The director didn’t show the audience much about the poker game maybe he thinks no one will understand it? and the casino? i know they really don’t have budget but did they really have to be that cheap? It was like taken a ride with a bad tour guide to a wrong hotel, I guess. If they call their movie Casino Royale they will at least to make the casino scene more interesting? Where is our smart cool Bond? Please watch The Cincinnati Kid, see how Steve does it. And where are the Bond girls? oh James.. 

When a Bond doesn’t act like a 007 but a Bourne wannabe? Who knows maybe someday they will even name the film "James Bond in Bourne another taken?  James Bond actually Jason Bourne in disguise and he has a daughter, wife and the queen to save. Sorry M since you are man again you can do it yourself. Our new Bond drinks beer and in tight suit. Bond falls in love and Bond can kick ass like Jackie Chan and doesn’t care about martini, don’t you see he is busy fighting bad guy and many of them even though they are mostly faceless .Yes, they’ve killed Blofeld/the wheelchair guy with a white cat in “For your eyes only” due the copyright issue 

So you will think after all these years now, is about time for them to introduce a real bad villain again in Skyfall but disappointedly they have a fake blonde ex agent as a baddy who has stole the agents list and he does not even have a hat or a jaw. Is this a Bond film or Mission Impossible, Die Hard?? I don’t like the last two Bond films I think they were forgettable! I don’t think I will watch Skyfall because I am still waiting for the real Bond film.
Movies are not real, they are dreams and Bond movies used to be boy’s fun dream filled with beautiful women, exotic locations, car chase, exciting battle sequences, gadgets, suspense, terrific music, and a memorable villain. 

“So do you like sky fall?”  I asked my friend,  
“Yes I love it! What a good movie” he replied  
“Better than Casino Royale?"
“No way! Casino Royale is much better ...“

Well, you get my point? I rather watch Indiana Jones chasing alien, at least Jone is still Jone. And now I need a drink,

"A dry martini," Bond said.
"Oui, monsieur"
"Just a moment. Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Lillet blanc.         Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?"
