Bats: R, Throws: R. How Acquired: Traded for a player to be named later. I hold a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Louisville, earned in history. I have lived with Crohn's disease since 2005, and chronic depression since my youth. I bring into each film that I view a world view shaped by those and other parts of my background. I try to be mindful of the socio-political themes and implications of movies, intended or otherwise, and that surely shows in my blog pieces. I also love doughnuts.

    My response to the Bond resurgence has been pretty consistent so far: Kind of “eh” toward the marketing and then really enjoying the heck out of the films themselves. I think some of that could just be that Bond was never really a part of my household or that modern Bond is joined by the likes of Borne or Hunt or what have you.

    That said, I love the simplicity of this poster. Minimalist design almost always grabs me and gets me interested.

  2. You gotta go all the way back to the teaser poster for The World Is Not Enough in 1999 (the silhouette of a woman against flames) to find the last Bond poster I really liked. It’s especially disappointing because the golden age of Bond movie posters includes some of the best stuff ever made. It’s sad to see one area where Bond has sacrificed his style.

    Still, I concur with you entirely about this poster. There’s something nice about its simplicity.
