Only for you

It will be nice when the election is over and all the political chatter can die down for a while. And for anyone who doesn't find themselves on the right side of the aisle, I hope everyone knows I would not deliberately post anything to snark at anyone. These are all just opinions, and I could be wrong, and everyone else could be wrong too. There is more to life than politics.

Like James Bond. The next James Bond movie looks to be good, and Dan Craig is great. But let's not forget the 3rd best James Bond, behind Timothy Dalton who comes in at #2 (Sean Connery...meh. He wasn't really all that much like the Bond of the novels until Ian Flemming started re-writing them to seem more like Connery-true story!), Roger Moore.

Anyway, one of the best Roger Moore 007 films is For Your Eyes Only, and not just because the theme song rules. It rules, amongst many other reasons, for the gripping scene wherein Bond is chased by men on motorcycles. Did I mention he was snow skiing at the time, and that 99% of the motorcycles on the planet would in reality stay up on snow for about 17 inches or so before they would fall over and explode in a fiery fire ball?

But don't worry, because in the end the motorcycle guys all wipe out or are horribly killed, and when the last one finds his bike is no longer usable, he picks it up and throws it in the general direction of Bond, who escapes by slowly moving out of the way. It has to be seen to be believed.
