Free Straitjacket Friday is also Beefcake Friday

Went to see Quantum of Solace today with some gal-pals. It's not your typical chicks-outing movie, but as one friend says about Daniel Craig, "When I look at him I feel all yummy."

I'm not big on the James Bond franchise. When I was a kid, Sean Connery was already in his 40s and therefore ancient to me and Roger Moore reminded me of an old guy with warts. When Timothy Dalton was cast as Bond, I said, "Who?" and when Pierce Brosnan was Bond, he was good to look at but not drool-worthy.

Daniel Craig is a new Bond: Tormented, heartbroken, a loose cannon. And BUFF, but not in a cartoonishly large way.

I really enjoyed the movie. There were so many pros: Non-stop action, creepy villains, interesting plot and smart women.

Cons: He doesn't remove his shirt. Not even once. What's with that?

Do you think I should ask for my money back?

while my all-time favorite bond is of course sean connery, this new bond is quickly moving up the ranks.

i like that he is rougher-edged and more ruthless.

my least favorite bond was roger moore.

I'll see the movie when it's on DVD... I know hubby will enjoy it.

Sorry, you don't get your money back.

Sean Connery WAS Bond. No one did it better than him. Roger? Nope. Pierce? Not even close. Timothy Dalton? Oh please.

Sean had exactly the right amount of sophistication and inuendo. The rest who came after never came close.

I will check out Daniel and let you know.

But you don't get your $$ back because you still got the yummy feeling, even sans shirt removal.

You had me laughing at the end there:)


BTW I like the early Bonds better than the last 3. Something about the Scottish accent that gets me with SC and RM well, I think it's a retro thing...
