Flashback Friday: James Bond

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.

Spy Style: Valerie Plame

Valerie Plame was a for real super spy in the CIA. She was outed by the Bush administration, lost her job, wrote a book, Doug Liman (the man behind the Bourne films and USA’s Covert Affairs) made it in to a movie starring Naomi Watts, and last May they walked the Red Carpet together at Cannes:

Spy Style: Angelina Jolie

Angie’s new spy thriller Salt lands in theaters this Friday, July 23, and last night she sparkled at the Red Carpet premiere in Los Angeles:

Very pretty, Angie. Armani, her old standard, and it suits her. Love that it shows off her legs and arms and love even more that she lets her hair fly free. She’s carrying herself like a movie star.

Pretty. Sparkly. Kinda boring. Diane’s black sequins were more memorable.

Spy Style: Piper Perabo

I have a thing for spies. All spies, any spies. And I have nearly as big a thing for spy style. Think of James Bond, Michael Westen, Sydney Bristow, La Femme Nikita — style is a significant part of being a spy and I don’t just mean presentation. I also mean shoes.

Piper Perabo sported these Christian Louboutin pumps in the pilot of USA’s new spytastic series Covert Affairs. If you haven’t seen it you obviously don’t watch USA because it was on every other hour for the last week. And cleverly enough these shoes showed up again on USA’s Burn Notice cinching that the shoes make the spy. Or at least make the spy look spytastic.
