Metro Recommends: Casino Royale
Are you guys annoyed with me yet for having so much time to read and watch movies at this busy time of year? BP has some holidays and I have five weeks off school. I do no Christmas baking, very little shopping and even less decorating; hence, free time.
BP and Cakes were having some quality time yesterday afternoon so I stole away for a solo matinee. Casino Royale was just the ticket for a rainy winter afternoon.
I’m not usually a fan of Bond movies but this one was a very pleasant surprise. The film goes back to the beginning of Bond’s career, to a time when he didn’t care if his martini was shaken or stirred. He’s just become 007. There are no gadgets and gizmos. There’s not even a Q. It’s back to basics, and that’s a good thing.
Daniel Craig’s Bond is brilliant. He’s suave and sexy but tougher (and rougher) than Pierce Brosnan. He’s also vulnerable. Did I mention he has a killer bod? And beautiful blue eyes?
Speaking of eye candy, the gorgeous settings made me want to hop on the next plane to Italy. This is one to catch on the big screen.
Fuck the baking - that's what the PC luxury biscuit assortment is for. Go see Casino Royale instead.
