more film criticism

If I told you that someone paid tens of millions of dollars to make a movie where Denise Richards was allowed to say the line "the world's greatest terrorist with six kilos of weapons-grade plutonium can't be good" - in a James Bond movie nonetheless - you probably wouldn't believe me.

Oh, believe it. It's called The World Is Not Enough and it's the worst Bond film I've ever seen. Oh, even worse than that one with that guy who's not Sean Connery or Roger Moore, but before Pierce Brosnon. This film gets the same rating as Catwoman.

As a point of reference, like Catwoman before it, I luckily rented this DVD for 25 Nepali rupees, and none of that went to pay royalties to anyone involved with making the film. The DVD also has two other Bond movies on it, the good first one that Pierce Brosnon was in, and the one with Hallie Barry. Considering Hallie Barry was Catwoman - however you spell her name - I'm not expecting much of that movie.

Man, work is stressing me out. So much to do, with only six weeks left. So much expected of me.

I still don't think my bosses know I have this web site. I checked out and an average of 60+ people are reading this site every day. Who are these people? I don't know, but on this last post, I got a response from an Nepali guy living in the US. Wow. Oh, I've mentioned this website casually in conversation with my bosses a number of times. It's not very hard to remember - It's my name, and then '.com'. I don't think they use the internet except to download email.

Unrelated, but surprisingly pertinent to the ethos of this post, the affordable local gin in Nepal is great - Blue Riband.

Oh, and there are no flights from Kathmandu to Varinasi. More to come on that idea...

Dave Evans is one of these people.

Catwoman was one of Lufthansa's many offerings on my flight from NYC to Frankfurt last night. Needless to say, I decided to sleep through it.

i'm one of those 60 people. i'm a nepali student in minnesota. your site is always a great visit because every other nepali news site or blog out there has nothing but the same old political news, which i am tired of reading.
