quantum of boredom
Being totally outnumbered by guys this weekend, I ended up watching the 2008 James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. Other than the fact that it has absolutely no plot, I didn't particularly appreciate the fact that Bond was on a cold blooded personal revenge mission. In my book, this movie doesn't even qualify to be a Bond film. Whatever happened to that suave Flemingesque Bond elegance?
Okay, that said, there were two teensy redeemable features. One, being the fabulous chunky gold fish necklace worn by Olga Kurylenko. Talk about something being worth its weight in gold, this is one magnificent piece of bling. I would wear it in a heartbeat. Second, is the marvelous Dame Judi Dench, as the imitable "M", who always presents an excellent piece of acting, regardless of the script. And I might add, she looked stunning in every scene.
If you haven't seen the movie, don't bother. I've already filled you in on the important highlights. And, since it was cold enough over the weekend to pull my woollies out of mothballs, this film gets two woolly socks down.
