Cracking Good Trailer, Grommit!

UPDATE: Stupid AOL. I’ve replaced their crappy Flash player for jerks with a decent YouTube version of the trailer.
The new Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, while hampered by an unendingly stupid and utterly unpoetic title, appears to have all the requisite features of an excellent theater-going experience:

A car chase, a boat chase and a dogfight [and a horse race and a foot chase and some sort of motorcycle chase as well. -ed.], all conveniently wrapped up in one Bond movie? Count me in.
(And while we’re on the subject of much-anticipated-movies, check out IGN’s review of The Dark Knight which calls it “the first official comic book adaptation that truly succeeds in being a great artistic achievement in its own right.” I cannot wait to see it.)

Unreasonable Expectations Of Entertainment?

Blonde.  James Blonde.
In honor of the forthcoming Casino Royale (which I’m really, really hoping doesn’t stink – the reviews are calling it “007’s Batman Begins“, which is good), Entertainment Weekly has released their list of 10 Worst Bond Girls as well as the 10 Best. There are some definitely questionable choices (Halle Berry as 4th best? Come on. Someone obviously has low expectations), but all in all, the lists look good.
