No Time To Digest: Part 6, Ja-Make-Ah Mistake?

Last episode M told Moneypenny to get him 007 and I cautioned you to hold on to your popcorn…  Because I don’t want you to make a mess! As he says that, we smash cut to the Craig-Bond on a sailing yacht! Yes the “popcorn dropping” moment of Lashana Lynch walking in bold, black, beautiful…

No Time To Digest: Part 4, Temper Raising Titles

Is it getting hot in here or is it just me? As the train carrying a forlorn Madeline Swann pulls away the screen begins to morph and colorful dots start to materialize… Wait there’s something familiar about this… Where have I seen this before?! Wait a minute!… NO! Dr. NO, PLEASE GOD NOOOO! Oh Yes!…

No Time To Digest: Part 3, Forgive Me Nots

Some things are just unforgivable old boy!   We left off the first half of the pre-title sequence with Satan Safin pulling 9 year old Madeline from the icy cold waters of Norway and smashing to older Madeline surging up from the Mediterranean breakers, finding a shirtless Craig-Bond smiling at her and asking if “everything…

Agent Naomi standing in the rubble of the Bond franchise.   Well it seems Lashana Lynch has once again put her foot in the mouth of the EON Productions publicity department. Well, to be fair I can’t tell…

EON Flemming’s Bond

Ian Fleming, just a guy who wrote some books.   The other day I made the mistake of wandering into the forums of those bastions of Bond fandom that are MI6-HQ and CommanderBond. Why you ask? I don’t know, I guess I’m just a glutton for punishment. Maybe I was curious to see, given the dearth…
