I went to the cinema, yesterday, and watched the latest James Bond offering. To be honest, I've felt the whole franchise has felt a bit tired and in need of a reboot and this one wasn't much different.

It's still a reasonable action film, to be fair, but definitely not one of the classic Bond movies (imo).

I think Casino Royale was the last Bond film I saw. I liked Craig's gritty Bond, but didn't feel compelled to watch any others.

I think the last time I watched Bond was when Sean Connery took over the role. I never got into spy thrillers -- I much preferred the fun that Mel Brooks had with it in "Get Smart". :)

Reminds me of this (for obvious reasons), which I wrote several years ago. ;)

"Batman"
(parody of "Tax Man" by the Beatles)

1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, Bat-time!

(Batmobile starts up)

I've got a cloak, I'll do a stunt,
And all the villains I will hunt,
Because I'm Batman!
Ye-e-eah I am Batman!

That Spiderguy might have that net,
And Superdude might fly (you bet!)
But I am Batman!
Ye-e-eah I am Batman!

Well now Gotham is where I roam around,
I'm so quiet - I don't make a sound
For my car, I'm paying by the pound
Over cars and shops, I'll jump and bound!

Batman!

(tense guitar music plays as Batman sneaks up behind the Joker, who amazingly completely fails to see him... get ready for a scene of indescribable violence. POW! ZAP! OOF! ZAPOW!)

Because I'm Batman!
Ye-e-eah I am Batman!

The cops don't chase the crooks in here (uh-oh, it's Chief Wi-ggum!)
They scarf the donuts and drink beer (uh-oh, getting fat!)
But I am Batman!
Ye-e-eah I am Batman!

And you know those villains must beware (Batman!)
It's lucky they don't work in pairs (Batman!)
You know I'm Batman!
Ye-e-eah I am Batman!

And I'm working for no one
But me (Batman!)

(music plays as the Bat signal is broadcast across Gotham City)

(music plays as the Batmobile's engine sputters and dies, and Batman tries to restart it)

(as the music ends, we hear Batman say...)
Dammit! Start, you stupid piece of junk!
