But I still get a kick out of my Bonny ,Tom Sykes, Jonathan Rea, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
I just love Bikes, Racing, and the UK.

This time it's annoying. Half (ro 2/3rds) of the commercials running during regular programme make direct references to the movie. Every second show on TV makes references to this movie. Even car magazines pull lists from out of the dark with "The coolest James Bond car" and wutnot.

You really can't escape it because even on the radio they dissect James Bond and make "funny" remarks or impersonations *yawn*

I can't remember any previous movie of this franchise causing such a hype.

You don't know what you've got till it's gone.

That is a very interesting paradigm. Although I`m not sure if paradigm is the right word because I don`t know what paradigm actually means and when I looked it up, I didn`t understand the wikipedia explanation. But it sounds good.



So anyhoo, calling James Bond a franchise, is almost correct. Like a Starbucks cofee shop that has changed hands many times, but no matter who runs it, it keeps making money for the franchise and the customers keep turning up and buying the coffee because they trust the brand and trust it will always be good quality. Interesting.

Watched it last night, thought it was great.

I'd intentionally tried to stay clear of spoilers so the end did surprise me, made me a bit sad too.

There were a couple of bits I thought could have been better but on the whole a return to form especially after quantum of solace which did nothing for me.

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

I reckon Skyfall may be the best Bond movie yet... I thought it was awsome!

I prefer Onatop over Natalya (pun intended). Watching her right now on the television.
