On sunday I went to see the new Bond movie...damn that was a big misstake. I really liked the previous movie, Casino Royale, for once had they updated both the character and not just the toys. A more raw than previous bond characters.
Now on the other hand he was more like Pierce Brosnan, a bit on the slimy side for some periods of the movie. Didn't like the new bond character at all.
And they had completely ruined the movie by cutting all the action scenes into shreds. Probably to give the viewer a feeling of everything happening fast and at once, but it just meant that I didn't have a clue what was going on, the scene in the building rig could give anybody an epilepsy attack...
I found a blog post about the new bond movie that's worth a read; http://www.juancole.com/2008/11/quantum-of-anti-imperialism.html
I hadn't really tought of it that way, for me the US tend to be the bad guys in the real world quite often. But then there aren't alot of good guys in the real world.
