Certainly Don't Die Today If You Can At All Help It: First the New Yorker (link no longer available it seems) and now the Standard. Trashing what has become of Bond (movie) series is very au courant. "Die Another Day" is getting split reviews, but the question I have is: Were the Bond movies ever very good? I think this article delves into this somewhat by praising the first 3 installments, but it also seems to admit that the movies have never been about good cinema. People go for the babes, the baubels, and the Bond. That said, the explosions are growing tiresome. We've been over this before. Maybe they should just cut to the chase and make Vin Diesel the next Bond.
