Saw Bond for the second time and I am still so very much in love with it. And this time I didn't just goggle at the amount of times they decided it would be great to beat Bond up and show the blood and his wounded body. Well, I did a bit, but then I noticed other things. Not sure what they are right now, mind you.

But the trailers! What the hell is 'We are Marshall'? This what I got from the trailer: Oh look! We'll honour a giant plane crash of athletes...by playing football as an homage. And everyone will be brought together through realising that this is the best way to deal with grief. And there'll be something about race and really bad clothes, but the two are not necessarily related. While it is no doubt very sad that all those people died I find it hard to get worked up about 'the greatest tragedy in college sports history.' As far as tragedies go it isn't exactly the most compelling one to focus on. Though maybe this film was made by the Rocky people as managed by comparison to make the new Rocky trailer look slightly less awful.

So I saw the new Bond and - oh my. Oh my, indeed. I actually quite like Bond films because they are so adept at explosions and chases and I like those sorts of things. I am usually much less interested in Bond himself because the films are instead all about the fetishization of his gadgetry and cars and female accessories (which is essentially what Bond girls are). And then some wonderful person apparently wondered 'hmmm...what would a Bond film look like if we made Bond the fetish?'

Admittedly, this film is about more than long loving shots of Daniel Craig's body both intact and wounded, but that is a startlingly large part of it. We even get him rising from the water in a trunks like that lady whose name escapes me from Dr. No.
