Who’s Your Daddy?

Craig’s Bond you are… (not?) the father!   Remember last rant when I asked why EON passed on director Cary Funksoulbrother’s grand idea to have half the film play out in Craig’s drill induced fever dream?

Dream On

No, no, I’m referring to the fever dreams that seem to be permeating the halls of EON lately, not the Brian Benben lead HBO series from the 90’s who’s only reason for existing was to juxtapose nude women with clips from Petticoat Junction.   It’s been a little while since I last posted, I started…

Property Of A Sad Lady

From my cold dead hands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   According to this article Barbara Broccoli is a rather forlorn woman. It seems the prospect of Ms Babz losing her favorite boy toy has her lamenting in abject misery. Quote: Broccoli told Variety: “I’m in total denial. “I’ve accepted what Daniel has said, but I’m still in denial. It’s too traumatic…
