If your an actor, you should be able to act

Today I saw Quantum of Solace.  I really enjoyed it except for the obvious reference to Goldfinger and the stupid Bond Girl name of Strawberry Fields.  I enjoyed stupid Bond girl names when it was Pussy Galore and the movies were infused with humor, but a rougher tougher bond, shouldn't have a girl named Strawberry Fields.  Seriously.  But never in the whole movie did I think Daniel Craig is so awesome, because all I saw was James Bond.  And I love that James Bond.  

Now before the movie they had a preview of Valkyrie.  All I saw was Tom Cruise not Clause von Stauffenburg.  Did you even know that was his character's name?  I didn't I had to look it up.  When was the last time you watched anything with Tom Cruise in it where you lost him in his character?  Risky Business?  I won't ever choose to pay to see a Tom Cruise movie again.  I just don't see point.  Movies are an escape and I'd rather escape that watch him.  

I still have not managed to watch Twilight.  Its on my list, but there was no way The Husband was going to go watch that.  Not that I will complain, having to watch Daniel Craig is never a hardship.  EVER.

I really don't think Daniel Craig is a good James Bond. He's fine, yes. But not really James Bond...no one can top Sean Connery. No one.

I left an award for you on my blog. Check it out!!

Sean Connery is FABULOUS for the time, but for the 21st century I'm so Daniel Craig. Maybe I'm just hot for James Bond.

I can't stand Tom Cruise! He makes me want to gag.

You like Daniel Craig even though he's not a goalie? :)

Tom Cruise is a wackadoo. Plus, he's like 5'2"...I cannot take a man seriously in a movie - except as a member of the Lollipop Guild - who is as much of a mini-human as that freakshow is. Oy, I cant stand Tom Cruise!!!

LMFAO A Unstable. Tom IS my height and even being short, it creeps me out. Hobbits are taller than he is for crying out loud!

Anyway...

I plan to read Twilight before seeing the movie, but my "To Read" list is about a million miles lon, so G-d knows when I'll watch it, though my age demographic is supposed to be the best for it... Whatever. I'd kill just to watch a movie without some short kid walking up and sitting in my lap, stealing my popcorn, having to pay a sitter a small fortune, or without having to pause into oblivion before watching the entire thing... Even if it is a teen-flick. ;-)
