Well guys, I drew it out for as long as I could, but I guess it’s finally time to let this party come to a close. But not before we get in one last parting shot! You see, amidst all this glorious celebrating, I haven’t quite found the time to celebrate some of my favorite films. Today, this changes. Continue reading

So remember when I was all “I’m gonna close out my Blogiversary Bash tomorrow” in yesterday’s post? Yeahhhh about that…See, I spent last night preparing for an important test for work, and I wasn’t really feeling like putting together a somewhat lengthy post in the midst of my studying. So we’ll officially wrap things up early next week–pinky promise. 😉 Continue reading
Question of the Month: Who Would Make A Great Bond Villain?
Ahhhh I have no idea how I missed this, but Luke over at Oracle of Film shared another epic Question of the Month! The topic this time: Who would make a great Bond villain? Lots of awesome answers! Go check it out!
I have been absent as of late. I decided to give you lot a Christmas break from Question of the Month, but when it came to sending out the January email, I couldn’t seem to bring myself around to sitting down a thinking up a decent question. I will get around to it, I promised myself, subconsciously aware that much like my New Year’s Resolution of not staring at my hair in the mirror for two hours a day, it was never going to happen. In fact, the only reason I bucked my game up for February was because a certain Zoe Zermatten threatening to give me a good old South African clap across the face. It got me thinking about how terrifyingly menacing she was… and then, a lightbulb clicked. Zoe would make an amazing Bond villain, so why not ask the WordPress crew who else would make a…

Kingsman: The Secret Service: bloody good fun
Once again, I’m doing a pretty wretched job of seeing the films I vowed to see at the beginning of the year (see that list here), but this was one I wasn’t about to miss—partly because the other offerings so far this year are apparently terrible, partly because this was the first one I’d been hearing good things about.

007 December – Dr. No (1962) – Silver Screen Serenade
MovieRob is having a Bond blogathon! How could I possibly resist writing a little something? 🙂 My choice? The first official Bond film: Dr. No! Check out my take on and–and while you’re over there, check out Rob’s, Luke’s, and Tom’s reviews, too!
For the second review today of Dr. No, here’s Cara from Silver Screen Serenade with her thoughts on the first “official” Bond movie.
Take it away Cara……..
“World domination. The same old dream. Our asylums are full of people who think they’re Naploeon. Or God.” – James Bond
Number of Times Seen – 1 (16 Nov 2014)
Brief Synopsis – “A suave and skilled government agent named James Bond looks for answers about a missing colleague and the disruption of the American space program.” (from IMDb)
My Take On It – First of all, thumbs up to Rob for deciding to tackle all the Bond films! What a fun idea! I’m a huge fan of the Daniel Craig Bond films—well, at list two out of three of them (I don’t love Quantum of Solace)—but until recently, I had never seen any of the other Bonds. Well, now…

Blogiversary Bash: A Double (Oh Seven) Celebration of Bond–James Bond
This is it! The LAST Blogiversary Bash post! Well, for this year, anyway.

So what the heck is left?! Continue reading
NOOOOvember 2013: Quantum of Solace
After taking some time to vent about Prometheus and X-Men: The Last Stand, it’s time to focus NOOOOvember’s lens on an iconic British character. His name is Bond. James Bond. And his 2008 adventure kept this would-be Bond girl disappointed until 2012’s Skyfall happily gave much more than a quantum of solace. But Quantum is still a frustrating misstep. Continue reading
