  1. 1. Thank you, Kofi, for your Mark Wahlberg impression! It was hilarious! :D

    2. I totally agree about Bonds coldheartedness that you talked about. It felt totally weird seeing him do (or rather not do) does things.

    3. Javier Bardem was guest on several late shows (Conan for example) and his English is fine, despite the thick accent. It’s definitely not true that he doesn’t speak it.

    • *does things = those things. ;)

    • Ya, Ant just makes stuff up like that.

    • Javier Bardem was also a guest on the Graham Norton Show, where the segments are not as heavily produced. Half of the time Javier Bardem wasn’t able to follow the conversations that were going on with Daniel Craig and Judi Dench. Bardem notes that fact on the show.

      • Maybe he was drunk? :D

    3.WRECK IT
    10.IRON FIST

  3. Okay…so i’m catching up on all my podcasts and one of the prevailing themes I heard in this one is that this movie was “weird/strange” (thinking about the sex scene in the shower or the heartless execution scene).

    But the way I’m thinking guys, this was the movie in which James Bond was supposed to be off his game. Now, I don’t know if this is was intentional (although, if it was, it’s brilliant), but perhaps all these slight mishaps and such, or the lack of emotional attachment, are indicators of how “off” he really is; maybe Sam Mendes meant for things to play out the way they did. Perhaps this Bond is not a suave, charming, sharp and pointed Bond, but a battered, broken one (in every sense of the word).

    And really, I didn’t like it as much as some others (namely, Casino Royale, which is my favorite); I thought it was mishandled a little, sure, but…I don’t know. I’m not that versed in movie construction, lol…yet… ;)
