Which, of course, we completely blow a hole through at the beginning of this one. He starts off on a romantic journey with Madeleine and then believes that he's been betrayed by her."
Nothing here that wasn't in the trailer.

What's most intriguing about No Time to Die, specifically in relation to Seydoux's return, is that she's the first Bond girl — besides Eunice Gayson as Sylvia Trench in Dr. No (1962) and From Russia With Love (1963) — to show up again. From Sean Connery in the first films up until Cr-egg in recent years, with the exception of Trench, Bond always finds himself a new female companion in every movie.

I assume this is a direct quote. Hard to imagine you describing anything about NTTD as "intriguing"!

"Intriguing" if you have no idea of the definition of the word, the PR machine is starting to stir.

Tennis star Pam Shriver in 2008, 46, accused her 68-year-old, Australian-born husband Lazenby of being an 'abusive drunk', physically injuring her during a row at Wimbledon last year, and claims he threatened to kill her if she sought custody of the children.

Lazenby, for his part, claims his estranged wife has been taking a 'nightly cocktail' of prescription sleeping pills that she mixes with painkillers and rum or vodka, regularly leaving her in a 'stupor'.

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, hosted by South African comedian Trevor Noah and boasting powerhouse performers Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, BTS, Billie Eilish, Post Malone and Megan Thee Stallion, drew a scant audience for CBS. This year’s telecast was the lowest-rated in Grammys history in the early numbers. Per Nielsen Live+Same Day official national numbers, Music’s Biggest Night delivered an average of 8.8 million viewers for the network during the ceremony’s broadcast on Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET with a 2.1 rating in the key, adults ages 18-49 demographic. In comparison, the time-zone adjusted fast national charts for 2020’s Grammy Awards drew a 5.4 rating in the key demo and 18.7 million viewers. The 2019 Grammy Awards drew a 5.6 rating and 19.9 million viewers. The least-watched Grammys was the host-less awards ceremony in 2006, which snagged 17 million viewers.----from what I heard the show was a disgrace with it being more of vulgarity in lyrics and strip tease by losers with a horrible and talentless host. The entertainment industry is destroying itself day by day by elevating lowlives into awards ceremonies based on cursing and debauchery.

Just shows that Twitter is not real life. Everybody on my Twitter feed this morning seemed to be talking about the sodding Grammys.

Speaking of the Grammys, great news, Billie Eilish won one or No Time To Die and considering the number of films/soundtracks released last year I'm sure it was quite a feat!

P.S. Someone should tell "Megan Thee Stallion" that a stallion is an uncastrated male horse.

ET on CBS just praised the Grammy show as the best ever. These outlets live in an alternate reality. Proof: The low ratings compared with just 6.9 million viewers for the Feb. 28 Golden Globes, another record low for a full ceremony, and 6.1 million for the Emmy Awards last September, enabling CBS to boast in a news release that the stunted Grammys were the "largest audience for an awards show this season."

Where's the lie? It does show that the audience for these things is down across the board. The solution? Who knows?

Just heard that Yaphet Kotto has passed away. RIP to Mr Big (and, in a parallel universe, Captain Picard - apparently he was one of several actors considered for the role.)

I still have not heard the Billie Eilish song on the radio,

Far as the awards shows Just being an awards show means talking point and trivia for most news outlets and shows. Basically they are events to generate content for media like internet sites radio and tv. I don’t think the awards necessarily have real meaning for the average person it’s a left over standard for industries which haven’t updated in 50 years.

From last night's Comic Relief, Daniel Craig is James Bond in You'll Only Laugh Twice*:
