I like to say I have reality-shifting “chaos powers” along the lines of Wanda Maximoff’s. Just, you know, not so powerful, and with no training. Anyway, lately my chaos powers have been going crazy. For example: I, like many, like to cast my favourite characters and/or cast my favourite actors in my favourite stories. I’ve mentioned before that Naomi Watts and Diane Kruger are my top picks for my best Marvel heroine, Ms. Marvel, and I am infatuated with the idea of Katie Holmes as Jessica Jones. I’ve also been saying since the first of Christopher Nolan’s Bat films (which starred Katie Holmes) that I want to see Talia Al Ghul on the big screen.
I have a confession. I’ve never seen Quantum of Solace. So it is partially my fault that they’re not making another one. But, see, (confession #2) I didn’t really like Casino Royale. It felt overly long and oddly slow for a BOND film. I liked Craig fine but I liked him in Tomb Raider, too, and basically, imagining a James Bond/Lara Croft crossover was way less boring than watching Casino Royale. So I just didn’t go to the next one. I have seen every other Bond film. We watched them all over a summer, as a project, circa Die Another Day. Now that we don’t have any new ones to wait for, it might be a good time to do it again — and I’d finally see Quantum of Solace.
