Chapter 19. The 'Casino Royale'.
Tricia, I simpathize You about Your managerie problems. In my childhood I had a dog. I named him Top, after the name of the dog from the novel 'The Mysterious Island' by Jules Verne I read at that moment. He lived for seventeen years and finally we had to put him to sleep because he was too old and weak.
Yesterday me and my wife went to the cinema and watch 'Casino Royale', the last James Bond film. Someone says that James Bond is back. I tend to disagree in this case. To my mind James Bond is not back. It seems that James Bond has died. But this is the case when we can say 'James Bond is dead. Long live to James Bond!' There is a striking difference between the last film and all the previous ones. Agent 007 has got new image, new charisma and new trend. It's difficult to say whether it become better or not. It's just become another movie. My wife didn't like it at all. She expected to see lots of luxurious cars, fashionably dressed girls and the ever-smiling hero. Instead she got the card game which she found boring. I don't support her in her judgement. I still find the film interesting and agile. But there is nothing special in it. The movie reminded me 'XXX' - the film with Vin Diesel, which some called 'James Bond in Rammstein style'. And again I pity I can't see it in English. Well, maybe I could find the mean to do it sooner or later.
