But there are boobs in it... boobs and Bill Murray apparently. Not his of course, but still.

Cos I make no sense.
Fair enough. Except for the use of the word 'annual'. Either replace it with 'daily' or 'anally', they both work.

Good lord, you're right about that. As we say here in the states, "my bad". I love our colloquialisms!

'Spaniel' also slots in quite nicely but lets not go there.

I think we're all too classy to go down that path, accurate as that path might be.

Hey, the Lance's Mom Cock-A-Thon raised $7.58 for testicular cancer research this year.

Let's give credit where credit is due.

Persepolis (dir. Marjane Satrapi & Vincent Paronnaud)

Essential viewing. At turns funny, moving, and horrifying, a very candid look behind the curtain of the Islamic Revolution of 1979, and how a young girl faces growing up inside and outside of the repressive environment. I own the graphic novel and read about half of it before watching this. They did a perfect job in making it come alive, capturing the best moments of the source material, while creating many new iconic images.

Don't miss it.

Diamonds Are Forever - 6.5

This was a fun movie. Not quite a great one though. The opening sequence was awful, but the first half of the film proper was extremely promising. Great pacing, fair script, good Bond girl, the whole diamond smuggling thread was great. Mr. Kidd and Mr. Wint are fantastically entertaining henchmen too, which makes the film more enjoyable than it might have been. Once we get familiar again with Blofeld and his scheme though, things start to get needlessly goofy, predictable, and absurd. The entire time the movie remains fun though, and that's what separates it from something like You Only Live Twice, or even Thunderball.

So ultimately, but nothing too special here. REALLY looking forward to digging into the Moore films again now though.

Ehh, I think that one's pretty crappy. Connery did not return with the same spark he had before. The gay henchmen were too over the top. Jill St. John was decent, but not enough to save the film.

Glad you liked On Her Majesty's... though.

Now that's good work, Laz. You don't always need to work blue, kid.
