I saw Skyfall the other day and found it a pleasant diversion. It's amazing to contemplate the fact that over the past half-century James Bond has gone from remarking that he would never listen to the Beatles without earmuffs to making a quip suggesting that he thinks being homophobic is uncool. That's some major consciousness-raising.
But would someone explain to me what's up with Silva arranging to be captured by his enemies so he can be placed in an inescapable glass box within their headquarters and then break out and attack them from within? (Above.) Not only this a move that only a moron could come up with, but it's exactly the same one that Loki pulled in The Avengers. (Below.) Are both movies quoting a classic -- and monumentally stupid -- bad film I haven't heard of or what?
And as always . . .
I'm still on the road. The Unlikely Adventures of Me will resume on my return.
