Double Oh This Again

This new preview for the new Bond movie No Time To Die has two strikes against it right out the gate -- one, it's focused on Rami Malek's villain character Safin, and Rami Malek is fresh off winning an Oscar for one of the worst, most offensive performances I have ever seen with his abominational turn as some minstrel version of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. It's gonna take time for me to get over that, if ever, and that time is Not Today. And two, the other thing this trailer has against it is we are in the middle of a pandemic and I don't think any new movies should be planning on coming out in movie theaters this year, period. I know some of you have gone but I don't feel responsible encouraging it. So I say that first! But this clip has one big plus and that's why I'm even posting it: more footage of Daniel Craig in suspenders. We can at least enjoy that in this hellscape!

OMG, He was ABYSMAL in BR. Mercury should be played as a flamboyant monster while he's performing--NOT while he's talking to his parents or eating at a dinner table. The lack of nuance most straight actors have while playing gay men is infuriating. It’s like they’ve NEVER met a gay person outside of a salon or make-up chair. He’s gonna be the most absurd Bond villain ever--and that's saying A LOT.
