Still, in a span of three days, I was able to watch TWO relatively new movies. PB and I watched Borat last Wednesday in Rockwell. We missed the original showing we intended on seeing, thanks to leaving the house late. Still, the movie was worth the wait. I was laughing from the beginning until the credits rolled.
Very unpolitically correct, it made me wonder how Sacha Baron Cohen could keep stay in character the entire time and not break a sweat. This guy just brought out the worst (or truest) in everyone he met along the way. Laughtrip for sure. PB and I were shaking in our seats the entire time, and it wasn't just because it was frigid inside the cinema and we had forgotten our jackets and I was in shorts. Whee.
Today, we watch Casino Royale and it was crazy because there were only two ticket lines and A TON of people waiting. Of course, impatience gets the best of people, so I tried to keep as cool as possible. The ticket lady was trying to serve two lines at the same time (NOT!) so it was a miracle we were able to get seats. Nevertheless, the 21st Bond installment was amazing.
I don't care what anyone says, because Daniel Craig is the hottest thing since sliced bread. Pamy has of course claimed her stake on him already, since she saw him on either Enduring Love or Sylvia, I'm not really quite sure which one it was, so I won't take him from her. But this guy is the shit. I know we're used to the hi-tech gadgets, never gets wounded, hair is always fixed type of Bond, but this Bond has so much realism and nudity that I just can't help myself.
I heart this Bond movie the best of all. Okay, so I've only really watched the Pierce Brosnan ones, but I like Daniel Craig's Bond much much much better. PB was saying he got a construction-worker vibe from this one, but I so thought otherwise. The opening credits were amazing. I love Chris Cornell's theme song to the movie and the starting credits were just so well made.
Bond with clothes (not always a suit, thank god) on, and Bond with NO clothes on are just lovely on the eyes. His Bond girls, though not stereotypically pretty, or who didn't catch my eye (or my brothers' eyes) the first time around, were actually really gorgeous. My mom and I loved how Eva Green (Vesper Lynd) looked without her red lipstick. The lucky girl gets to roll in the hay with Daniel Craig. Ack, I'm so jealous.
Like any Bond film, the cheesey lines just have to be in it. I think it's trademark Bond to have witty banter between characters, but the cheesey lines are my favorite of course. Of course no one can beat Star Wars Episode 3 lines, but these ones come close.
Vesper Lynd: You're not going to let me in there. You've got your armour back on.No matter how corny, when it comes out of Daniel Craig's lips, and looking into his oh so blue eyes, I would definitely believe it. There were the wittier one liners, but this one just made me half-squirm/half-melt, I coudln't decide which.
James Bond: I have no armour left. You've stripped it from me. Whatever is left of me - whatever is left of me - whatever I am - I'm yours.
Of course, it didn't hurt that there was a romantic angle to this movie. I like action movies, believe me, but I think throwing in a little romance made things so much better. Just like real life, it's already cool as it is, but adding a little romance never hurt.
So really, I'm glad that I've got 15 days left of school because having PB around is already like an early Christmas vacation. I can't seem to do anything when he's around (and this is all by choice, of course). His presence has also helped my quest to complete the Starbucks planner-sticker thing. He's already consumed so much coffee in the short amount of time he's been here. Subsidized fully by our parents of course. God I love having PB around.
