    Truly fascinating.

    Saw the new Bond movie tonight and found it to be quite odd – no Q, no new gadgets, no new invisible car… Almost nothing really the other Bond movies had, other then shooting, explosions, hot girls, and M.

    The storyline lacking everything but action, and guiding the viewer along wondering just what the hell is going on.

    I have to say, in the opening credits after the chase scene, the sun was portrayed over sand pyramids almost 20-30 times, all we saw was the sun rising over and over again…

    Sadly it seems this series of movies has really declined. The last bond film I liked was Goldeneye.

    “Another contender as the original M was the strange MI5 spymaster Maxwell Knight, who ran a subsection of the security service responsible for rooting out potential subversives in Britain. Knight was one of the first to warn that the secret services were being infiltrated by communist moles. He was a man of many parts, most of them odd and quite incompatible: in addition to running a huge spy ring, he was a novelist, a jazz saxophonist who had been taught by Sidney Bechet, and an occultist who befriended and recruited the bizarre black magician Aleister Crowley. He was also an obsessive naturalist who kept snakes in the bath and wrote such definitive works as How to Keep a Gorilla. Maxwell Knight signed all his memos “M”, and was certainly well known to Fleming.”
