I am ridiculously excited for the new Bond movie, Skyfall, coming out this October. Julia and I once spent the greater part of a year dutifully watching every Bond movie, and yes, that includes the Dalton movies. Let me just say that they all begin to blend together after a while, especially the Moore ones, which were all rather campy and, more often than not, included a shark chase. I swear that happened on more than one occasion.
But this one looks really good, despite the fact that Javier Bardem’s hair does not. And honestly, Judi Dench is a freaking delight.
Just to get you in the mood, please also enjoy the opening sequence from Goldfinger. This is arguably the best of all the theme songs. It’s much, much better than the Duran Duran one.
