From Russia with Love

I know.

Russia isn’t all about love these days, not if you’re a member of the LGBT community,  so I won’t be going back there anytime soon, but the title is more about James Bond anyway.

Based on the cars alone, I’m a Bond fan. Just so we’re on the same page here, by Bond I mean Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan, not Sean Connery.

Also, any movie that puts a guy in tux? Nice.

Speaking of formal style…

Here’s a picture of Humphrey Bogart wearing a white dinner jacket and the Russian hat I mentioned in my post earlier this morning for those of you who were curious  πŸ™‚

  1. WHAT????!!! Y’all are in Russia????!!!! Oh man. That’s the cooooolllleeessst. Coldest. 🀣 No pun intended…but seriously. Wow. Last thing I heard was Florida. I’m smiling so big. Hoping Y’all are having a wonderful time. And I’m with You on the Daniel Craig thing. OH MY GOD. He is Bond personified to me. I about died. Never go the Sean Connery thing either. And my next sentence may distance You from me forever…..wait for it…..I’m a Roger Moore girl all the way. But You have to know that the first movie I saw on a movie screen was ‘Live and Let Die’. I was 9 years old and my mom took us. It was the 70s. πŸ˜‚ Scared the crap out of me, but I fell deeply in love with Roger Moore. Pierce Brosnan is to die for, but only Daniel could kick Roger off the throne!!! I’ve had too much coffee. God. Sorry Aimer! Have a blast and Cheers!!! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m not in Russia now πŸ™‚ Bought the hat on a previous trip.
      Nope, still standing next to you πŸ™‚ Roger was one of the suave ones.
      Like you, I never thought anyone could match Pierce. I went into the theatre determined to hate Daniel Craig in the role and he blew me away! Nailed it.
      Did you ever see Dean Martin as Matt Helm? It was a Bond knock-off kind of thing. I think I was 12. The first movie I saw sans parents. Loved him in that.
      More recently, The Kingsman movies with Colin Firth…their headquarters are over a men’s bespoke shop in London. How do you not love that?

      1. Man. I keep seriously misreading things. It’s creating a comedy of errors in my life! Thank God all my friends and my boss have a sense of humor! I’m coming off a head/chest cold, so I’m gonna blame that! 🀣I was
        determined to hate Daniel Craig as well. Silly rabbits were we! And…wait…what? I don’t even know about the Kingsman movies. And I love Colin Firth! Okay. I’m looking for it! Thank You!!! And no! Never saw Dean Martin as Matt Helm. LOVE him sooo much. We play his music at work sometimes. My God. Too sexy and the most wonderful cheesiness You can’t help but swooning for! I have to find that one too!!! What a great first “without the parents” movie to have seen. Thank You, Aimer!!! Cheers! πŸ™‚

      2. You’re not the only one. It’s easy to see what you think is there.
        There have been 2 Kingsman movies. In the second one, where the Brits team up with their American Kingsman colleagues, their is a fight near the end … Colin swinging an umbrella. Gotta love it.
        Check them out and let me know what you think πŸ™‚
        I’d love to see the Matt Helm movie again…it would be all kinds of cheesy now!
