Nancy Wake, the former WWII spy called "The White Mouse" by the Germans for her ability to evade capture, died last year at 98. She received so many medals for service, "she lived out her old age on the proceeds from their sale." If only this were true of other women spies of WWII.

It could be argued that one cannot be a true English gentleman without a stiff upper lip and a suit from Savile Row. Built between 1731 and 1735 this ...
What's bugging our still handsome hunk is pure and simple middle-aged angst about losing his edge. Chalk up one more boomer whose investment is yielding diminishing returns. The man is slipping.
We now live in a changing world, one where a pudgy Korean guy can be an American and global phenomenon and James Bond isn't just the coolest man in the world, he's also one of the hottest.
If Casino Royale outed Bond's omnisexual tartiness, Skyfall outs the queerness of the Bond villain, someone who was often implicitly coded as queer. After all those decades of coding, Bardem's openly flirtatious, swishy villainy seems exhilirating.
The overwhelming stench of nostalgia, regret, decay and desuetude in Skyfall -- perfectly symbolized by that grim Scottish manse -- made me wonder if this was supposed to be a eulogy. I hadn't come to bury Bond, but to cheer him on.
Necessity is the mother of invention and smaller budgets almost always beget more interesting films. For MGM and its fortunes going forward, Skyfall is the comeback it needed, the ultimate symbol of its recovery. Resurrection
The Twilight Saga ended as it began, kicking James Bond's ass to the curb with a massive opening weekend.
Skyfall is a smash hit, well on its way to being the biggest Bond film of the modern era. But what does it mean and where does it fit in the Bond canon and the current scene?
This is Daniel Craig's third Bond film. He hit a high with Casino Royale but was a letdown in Quantum of Solace. It seems the makers of these movies are still trying to decide exactly who Craig's James Bond is.
Skyfall, the newest film featuring secret agent 007, had its best opening of any Bond film as the franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Daniel Craig is known to be a sometimes intimidating interview subject. He values his privacy and cherishes his silence. However, the actor happily chats about his big ears, nose-picking, shoplifted frozen turkeys, and certain habits we just can't mention here.
Skyfall easily crushed the opening weekend record of the 007 series, earning a massive $90 million in its debut. It looks like the James Bond series may be returning to the top-tiers of franchise filmmaking, a roast it once unquestionably ruled.
Mendes, who previously worked with Craig when the star had a key supporting role in 2002's Road to Perdition, brings a methodical, refined eye to the proceedings, helped along by the luxurious cinematography by Roger Deakins.
As I clutch the wheel of a silver Aston Martin V8 Vantage S and watch the speedometer straddle the 100 mile mark, I feel a smirk coming on.
