“Nobody Does It Better… Makes Me Feel Sad For The Rest…”

“…Nobody Does It Half As Good As You

Baby, You’re The Best…”

“…I Wasn’t Looking

But Somehow You Found Me

I Tried To Hide From Your Love-Light

But Like Heaven Above Me

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

Is Keeping All My Secrets Safe Tonight. …”

CARLY SIMON

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER (THE SPY WHO LOVED ME)”

(1977)

<<<{*}>>>

So I’ve Oddly Had This Song On The Brain Alllllll Daaaaaay Long.

It Was The First Song I Really Wanted To Hear When I Awoke…

…And I’m Listening To It As I Type This, Now.

It Is A Truly Wonderful Song, Yes, But It’s More Than That.

This Song Was Also On-Board To Usher In A Whole New Era Of JAMES BOND

…So To Speak.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Was THE BOND FLICK That Firmly Cemented…

ROGER MOORE

…Into The Lead Role.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Is An Exceptional Film, And One Of The All-Time Greats…

…But Would It Have Been So WITHOUT This Glorious Theme Song?!

Honestly, I’m Not So Sure.

I Love The Film.

There’s No Question Of That.

BUT…

…One Of My Favorite Parts Of The Whole Flick Is Watching The Opening-Credits.

WHY?!

Because I Love Seeing The Name…

ROGER MOORE

…Coming Along With The Tune Of…

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER

by CARLY SIMON

!!! !!! !!!

I Actually Get Schoolboy Goosebumps When It Happens!

And It Happens Each And Every Time!

I’ve Never Honestly Understood Why.

The Only Other Times This Has Ever Happened Because Of A Movie Was…

…Oh Yeah…

…OTHER BOND FLICKS!!!

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…My Fave Fave Flick Of The Whole BOND Series With A Song I Simply Love…

…Or…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Yet Another Favorite BOND Flick With A WONDERFUL Opening Song!!!

And On And On AND ON!!!

HA!

I Wonder What It Is?!

What Is It About Seeing BOND And Hearing A Great Song That Can Make Me Just Go Gooey?!

I Dunno.

I Just Dunno.

But I Will Say This…

…It Happened Again Last Night While I Watched…

SKYFALL

…And Sang Along With…

ADELE

!!! !!! !!!

OF COURSE OF COURSE, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

I’d Appreciate YOUR THOUGHTS, My Peeps.

WHAT IS IT?!

WHAT IS IT ABOUT BOND And A GREAT OPENING THEME That Gets Us All A Goin‘!?!?!?!?!

ANY THOUGHTS, My Peeps?!

ANY THOUGHTS AT ALL?!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Sooo… …What To Say About The JAMES BOND Adventure “SKYFALL” (2012)???

Well

Honestly

I LOVED IT.

Period.

I Enjoyed The Ever-Living-Hell Out Of It, To Be Fo SHO.

It Was New.

It Was Fresh.

It Was Unlike Any JAMES BOND Adventure I’d Ever Had The Privilege Of Seeing Before.

I Kept Trying To Make Comparisons To Other BOND Flicks As I Watched Along…

…And I Sincerely Found That Next To Bloody Impossible.

But I Did…

…I Tried To Muster All My Powers, Madams And Misters.

And I Simply Couldn’t Do It.

That’s Just How Fresh And Engrossing This Adventure…

SKYFALL

…Actually Was.

It Had Some Elements Of…

DR. NO

…And…

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

…But Also Some…

LICENCE TO KILL

…And Even A Little…

GOLDENEYE

…Yet…

…In The End…

…It Was EXACTLY What I Wanted…

…It Was JAMES BOND As I’d NEVER Seen Him Before!!!

KUDOS, Movie Makers…

…KUDOS, INDEED!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

They Totally Just Went For It.

They Totally Just Went Off The Map.

They Totally Just Sold Me That JAMES BOND Does Indeed Continue To Live Onward Into The 21ST-Century…

…And He Has Plenty Of Room To Grow Grow GROW!!!

Now How The Hell Could One Ask For More Than That?!?!?

EXACTLY, My Peeps!!!

You Couldn’t.

They Gave Us What We Wanted…

…And Even A Little Bit More.

It Was Tough.

It Was Gritty.

It Was Edgy.

It Was Drama Filled AND Action Packed.

It Was Cold AND Dark…

…Yet…

…Retained Its Sense-Of-Humor.

It Was NOT…

CASINO ROYALE

…Nor…

QUANTUM OF SOLACE

…It Was Its Own.

It Was Imaginative.

It Had Its Twists And Turns.

In Short…

…It Was THE BEST BOND FLICK In The Past 30 YEARS.

PERIOD.

For ME…

SKYFALL

…Ranks Right Up There With…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

(My Fave Fave)

…And…

THUNDERBALL

(The Best BOND Adventure)

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

It Was THAT Good, My Peeps.

JAVIER BARDEM

…Was Twisted…

…Was Evil…

…Was Believable…

…Was A SPOT-ON-PERFECT BOND-BADDIE.

I Don’t Think They Could Have Cast His Part Any Better.

And I Do Believe That…

DANIEL CRAIG

…Totally Cemented Himself As OUR BOND

…As MY BOND

…As THE BEST BOND.

He Impressed The Shit Out Of Me, My Peeps.

So…

…All-In-All…

…It Was Worth It, My Peeps.

I Don’t Hit The Theater Too Often Anymore.

The Price And The Hassle Have Simply Tarnished The Experience For Me.

It’s Sad…

…But It’s True…

…And I Feel It’s The Same Way For A Lot Of Y’all.

SKYFALL

…To ME…

…Was TOTALLY WORTH ALL OF IT!

If You’re Going To Hit-Up The Big Screen For ANYTHING This Fall…

…Well Then…

SKYFALL

…Should Be That Flick.

PERIOD PERIOD.

Do I Think It’s “THE BEST BOND ADVENTURE” Of Them All?

No.

Was This “MY FAVORITE BOND ADVENTURE” Of Them All?

No.

Could Either Of Those Statements Be Easily Argued, And Potentially Overturned?!

YES YES YES, INDEED!!!

I’ll Close By Simply Saying This…

…If You LOVE LOVE LOVE JAMES BOND

…You’ll Simply LOVE LOVE LOVE…

SKYFALL

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

!!! !!! !!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, I Saw “SKYFALL”!!!

YEP.

SEE!!!

TOLD YA!!!

My Review Will Come Later, As I’m Still Entertaining A Guest From Out-Of-Town.

So I Shall Take Pen To Paper, And Write-Up What All I Think For Y’all For Tomorrow.

In One Word, However…

…”AWESOME“…

…Is The Word That Works Best.

I Was Damned Impressed, My Peeps.

I Shall Fill You All In With A Little More Time To Digest It All.

Much Love To Y’all!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Weekend Company… …And “SKYFALL”!!!

I Just Wanted To Let Y’all Know That I Wouldn’t Be Putting Out Very Much This Weekend.

I Have Company In From Out-Of-Town…

…So My Free-Time Is Being Monopolized.

HOWEVER…

…I’ve Already Purchased My Tickets For This Afternoon’s Showing Of…

SKYFALL

…Of Which I’m Supremely STOKED STOKED STOKED!!!

I’ll Likely Have More To Write About It (Of Course) Come Tomorrow…

…So I Promise To Keep Y’all Posted On What My Totally Unbiased Opinion Is.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Well…

UNTIL THEN…
