|02:28 am - I really need to go out with my friends more often...|
Early this year, I went out to a birthday party, and when I came back, we had a new Doctor Who companion. Tonight, I went out to see Casino Royale with fa11ing_away, and I come back to the Harry Potter Book 7 title.
If Big News is going to be announced every time I go out, Maybe I should do it with a little more frequency...
In any case, saw Casino Royale (fittingly enough, at the cinemas at Crown Casino), which was Very Good. I am rather looking forward to the next Bond movie, I think.
Loved the whole black and white pre-credits sequence. Very cool indeed. And the opening titles were fabulicious. As for the actual movie, I have to agree with pretty much everyone else - Bond with depth? Awesome! Very much liked the whole "Bond becoming the character we know" schtick, as well as the slightly increased realism of certain things - well, realism by Bond movie standards. Bond and M were fab, and I liked the complexity of who is betraying who and all that. As well as having some interest in the mysterious organisation behind things - one reason I am looking forward to the sequel.
fa11ing_away and I also had a bit of fun inventing words with "bling" in them. Word of the night ended up being "Blingasm"
Though I still think Brosnan was better looking...
ETA: A comment I made over at Fandom_Lounge at 2:59am. I'm keeping at eye on this number for posterity
Current Mood: amused
*claps hands excitedly* Another person loved Casino Royale! :) It was quite awesome, was it not?
It was, rather. But then, I have a fondness for Bond movies - even the crappier ones. I think they just got repeated on TV so much as a kid that I subconsiouly developed a liking for them. Maybe I should get around to reading more of the books...

Uh, I just realized I forgot to pack a Doctor Who I burned into that package I sent your way today...
Erm, oops? Could you send it seperately, or something?

I'll have to check out how much postage that would be, I just paid 5 Euros for the one I sent away today... oh, btw, it might be late for Christmas. Sorry.
Oh, I don't mind if it's late or anything. And if the postage is too much, don't worry about it. (With all my cards and parcels and all, I ended up spending over $50 on postage..)

What, in your opinion, would cause a blingasm?
Hmm... Recieving a particularly spectacular bit of bling?

Le Chiffre cries blood hfdlasihf and Bond's blue eyes are so much bling I was blingasming.
