It’s hard to believe that the James Bond character has now had twenty three movies made about him. We just can’t seem to get enough of his debonair attitude, the exotic locations, Q’s deadly gadgets and all the sultry lady conspirators. The third Daniel Craig Bond movie “Skyfall” is set for release on Oct. 23rd. This month also happens to be the 50th anniversary of the franchise that started way back in 1962 with Dr. No.
Adele, like James Bond, is a world-wide phenomenon. At just 22 years of age, she has become one of the highest-selling recording artists of all time. She’s won countless listener awards and several Grammy awards, and her last studio album “21″ has gone certified platinum a total of SIXTEEN times. She’s now 24 and is expecting her first child.
Daniel Craig is the sixth actor to portray James Bond, and by all accounts, he has revitalized the franchise with a harder, more serious take on the secret agent. The stunts are less choreographed, yet more complex. The fights are much more raw and high impact. The dialog is less cheeky and tries to be more realistic. Everything else, however, is pure Bond fantasy. The ladies are hotter, the cars are faster, the villains are more sinister and (thankfully) the music is much better.
