The pReview Re-viewing
Friday Breakdown for
November 9, 2012!
(warning: I can't show you on the doll where James Bond touched me.. Because he touched my soul.)
by Jeff Finck
Hey there! Now, normally, I would rant and rave about some inane thing with all the hostility and spirit of Donald Trump at an extortion convention. And today.. I will rant and rave about James Bond! Specifically the only major release coming out today: James Bond 23, Skyfall! Skyfall has had the best PR team in the history of the last six months of movies. They're everywhere! From escorting the Queen of England to the Olympics, to Coke ads, to trying to make Heineken seem drinkable (Spoiler: It still isn’t).. Heck, Adele's even been making us cry about it! And now, I assume their latest and greatest ploy will be in the form of:
As I said, Skyfall is really the only thing coming out this week. Daniel Craig resumes his role as Bond Jamesbond because.. Why in the fuck would you ever turn that role down?! MI6 is attacked and Bond must track down those responsible for such a blatant disregard for secret government organizations that eliminate secret evil anti-government organizations. But the answers he finds may not be what he expected.. For instance, the bad guy is Javier Bardem, but they made him look like the guy who tries to sell you ice cream in your nightmares.
I normally do a Final Breakdown at the end.. But seeing as there's really just the one movie coming out.. You should watch it. Twice if possible. Did you know that this latest incarnation was almost called 007 in New York. Seriously.
