A theory – by me

Thursday, November 23 2006

I have just seen the new James Bond Casino Royale (slim – plz keep on reading…) and it was different which is good in my view. And Daniel Craig is well fit in this movie.

But something else stood out, the composition of the (American) audience. In the UK the rating for the film is 12A (anyone who is 12 years old must be accompanied with an adult, 11 years old and less not not allowed to see this film) … here people had their kids with them, like 6-10 year olds.

I find that unsuitable and quite frankly fucking annoying to hear a toddler whining during the film.

To my theory … in general the Americans gets their knickers in a twist when it comes to sex and/or nude scenes, violence has always seemed ok.

They bring their kids to see grown-up film (can’t use the word adult films cos that means something different 😉 ) and have this issue that their kids are going to be exposed to sexual behavior. The pressure seem to be that even if it is a grown-up film it still has to be adjusted to the minimum common denominator for the kids.

I think it is damn stupid to bring kids to films like this both for the violence, the action and for the sex scenes.

    I still believe Craig is not a suitable Bond. The best Bonds are Connery and Brosnan. They’re irreplacable, in my opinion.

    I read somewhere that Craig can be considered a Bond Girl, because he does the Bond Girl routine of coming out of the water, showing his body with all the moisturizers on LOL. Since when did James Bond turn metrosexual?

    American kids are lucky bastards. They get to see all the good stuff even before they hit the pubes lol.

    I thought so too but Daniel Craig does a great performance in the film and he makes Brosnan look plastic.

    I am so not complaining on the “walking out of the water scene” … just beats the “naked on the chair scene” – yummy

    wait a minute … who’s naked on a chair?

    Americans are total hypocrits … it’s what makes us fun at parties. 🙂

    I want to see the naked chicks in Bond movies, not Bond himself naked. Thats… gay.

  6. Lizze Says:

    You have had the other 20 films to watch the chicks …. now it is our turn to watch some sexy males 🙂

  7. Slim Says:

    Hmm, maybe they should have male and female versions of Bond movies… just so everyone gets a fair chance, and also straight guys can be aware that they shouldn’t watch this particular movie because there is a you-know-what scene somewhere.
