Craig, Daniel Craig - 007-Back, with Biggest Box Office!

Daniel Craig blew into the box office this weekend as 007 in the latest James Bond film - Quantum of Solace

While the name doesn't exactly roll of the tongue - people had no trouble finding the movie this weekend.   Although the economy continues to be the weakest we have seen in decades - the Bond franchise seems to be recession proof!   Taking in a staggering $70Million from Friday night at midnight through Sunday - this makes Quantum the largest box office opening for any Bond film ever!   It seems to be unanimous, the public loves Daniel Craig as the smooth talking professional killer as he raced his way through Bond film # 2.    Dame Judy Dench returns as Bond's motherly boss M and she steals every scene she is in.    

It wouldn't be a bond film without a gorgeous femme fatale to temp James and distract him just enough.  This time around, the women in question is a professional hit "man" herself - as deadly as she is beautiful.   It is impossible not to watch Olga Kurylenko as she struts from scene to scene - where did she come from??

The Bond theme for Quantum is performed by Jack White (remember from the White Stripes) and Alicia Keys.   I don't see it topping the charts - but it is a haunting and surreal addition to the film.

Head to the theater to check out this non-stop adventure.   I might recommend a Dramamine for the faint of heart.    Quantum of Solace is definitely playing at a theater near you.

Whatever Lola Wants.....

Whatever Lola Wants......

A newly restored version of the classic 1955 movie LOLA MONTES is playing in an exclusive showing at New York's FILM FORUM from Oct.10th -30th.


This film is beautiful and surreal and has a dreamlike quality to it as it weaves the real life tale of one of the most provocative female entertainers we have ever known.   She was a dancer who was as famous for her wealthy lovers as she was for her stage work.  She debuted on the London stage and billed herself as "LOLA MONTES.. the Spanish Dancer".  In reality she was born in Ireland and spent part of her childhood in India.MADONNA - CONFESSIONS TOUR

Montes (or Montez) was a true trailblazer.   She was at the height of her career in the 1840's.. a century before women had the right to vote or there were other feminists such as Coco Chanel or Sarah Bernhardt.   I actually wrote about Montes as the inspiration for Madonna for the Confession tour.. click the link below for that post, and get to the film forum asap.. or check the art house theater schedule in your town!  Watch the trailer below - and find the DVD.
