The new Bond theme

Feb 18, 2020

Murmurings of a teenager.

Maybe it will grow on me – but I bet they wish they hadn’t.

My guess is by the time of release this delicate lament will be drowning in Bond orchestration to cover this misstep. But initially I was cold on Sam Smith’s effort, and now I think it’s one of the best.

Very touching. Amazing performances by John C Reilly and Steve Coogan. “Two double acts for the price of one”.

Tight, high-waisted jeans. Loose perms. It’s Ram Jam

Atomic Blonde

Dec 12, 2017

Lots of blood splattering violence and slender young women running around in their underwear. Did no one tell them Berlin can be very cold? The slight Chalize Theron successfully beating up six enormous Soviet thug agents. Indeed. A very cheesy opening few minutes where you know you are in London because of the number of London taxis and mark 1 minis passing in the foreground and the constant sight of a CGI Houses of Parliament in the background. To use the well worn phrase, James McAvoy was chewing up the scenery as a rogue British Spy station chief. Sophisticated it was not.

£4 to park the car for the duration of the film. And there is acres of space. I have joined the Phoenix East Finchley. Discount teas and cake in place of a rip-off parking charge. I would even consider going to the Barnet Everyman (ex Odeon) in place of schlepping down to Finchley Road!
