Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
That's all I'm going to say on the subject.
Okay, I tried.
Really? That's it? After all the money and the mudslinging all we get is...what...stasis?
That was the worst reality show finale EVER!
Look I know change is hard. Nobody likes it. It takes us out of our comfort zones and makes us think.
Think you say? Never.
Take, for example, the 2005 announcement that Daniel Craig would replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond?
Is that dude blonde?
That's not Bond!
Still, I think we can all agree that, after only two movies, Craig has firmly established himself as the Bond for the new millenium.
Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace are among the best movies in the canon. Craig's Bond is much closer to the Bond of Ian Fleming's books than anyone since "you know who." For what its worth, I thought Timothy Dalton made a pretty good "book Bond" too.
Craig's third turn as 007, Skyfall, opens today to rave reviews.
And where there is Bond, there must, by definition, be Bond girls.
Say hello to this week's cheesecake, Berenice Marlohe.
Ms. Marlohe is a French actress with a very short list of credits prior to her casting as Severine in Skyfall.
I'm sure her phone is ringing off the hook with offers and we'll see more of her soon.
Still, even if she never works again, she has achieved that special kind of immortality shared by Ursula Andress, Jane Seymour, Halle Berry, and, to a lesser degree, Maryam D'Abo. Like diamonds, Bond Girls are forever.
Let's hit the links.
