No, Mr Bond

I have to admit to not being the biggest James Bond fan in the world. Nowhere near the biggest, actually.

I find the films enjoyable enough but even the latest, Skyfall, I really couldn't see what the fuss was all about. A bad guy surfaces with a grudge against M, Bond gets all growly and mean-faced for a while, Q gives him just the right gadget and the day is saved. There are gratuitous nods to older Bond films which really make no sense in this new, rebooted universe - if Bond only came into active service a few years ago, why oh why would he have a 1960's Aston Martin with an ejector seat tucked away in a garage? It's just there for the older fans to nod and smile and feel nostalgic - and the product placement is horrible.

But hey, other people seem to like them. Over at his blog, Ty Templeton sums it up nicely:
