When we unleash the dogs of war, we must go where they take us.

Race tracks, spewing blood, pigs, and illiteracy. What fun! I think we all agreed that Sir Robert’s ongoing gastric complaints would somehow interconnect with the Downton Abbey war over control over the local hospital, probably with a medical emergency that depends upon either modernization (most likely) or the local touch.

Daniel Craig’s first outing as Bond in CASINO ROYALE (2006) quieted the critics who loudly complained when he was cast. The film is very faithful Ian Fleming’s novel and […]
