bond and writing

A bit conflicted on the new Bond movie. Undeniably, on many technical levels, a good movie. But was it a good Bond movie? I don't know. Also, some weird sexism running through the storyline that was just...off. I know, I know, IT'S A BOND MOVIE, DUH, and I get that Bond is supposed to be charming and manly and rarrr (men want to be him! women want to do him!), but I feel like this was a step back somehow.

I shan't say more, lest I spoil it, but if you do see it compare the shower scene in this movie to the one in Casino Royale and tell me there isn't something just inherently wrong and creepy about the whole thing.  Or maybe my sensitive side is showing.

And on that note, I failed to catch up on my word count, but hope to restore it over the week. The other half is off in another part of the state for two days mid-week, so I'm looking to spend that time without him writing.  What else am I going to do?

Tumblr has shown me some pics of Q, which is now reason enough for me to want to see this movie. Yes, I am that easy to please.

He's like Matt Smith with eyebrows!

People were whining about Q, but that was a part I definitely didn't have a problem with. At all.

His (lack of) eyebrows scare me! Those gifs do not help!

I miss David Tennant. :(

I had a horrible time adjusting to Matt Smith. I eventually got used to him, but Tennant was just so...malevolently likable. Lickable. No wait, likable!

OKAY, SO HE'S BOTH.
