The Swishy Villainy and Psychodrama of Skyfall

Mark Simpson fondles the pecs and thighs of James Bond’s latest ‘out­ing’ When at their first meet­ing in Skyfall a rather for­wards Raul Silva, played by a bleached-blond Javier Bardem, takes cad­dish advant­age of James Bond’s/Daniel Craig’s indis­pos­i­tion – tied as he is to a chair – run­ning his hands over 007’s craggy face, ripped […]

Bond on a Budget: Quantum of Solace is Plenty Cheap

Mark Simpson straps Mr Bond into a rim-chair and aims a knot­ted rope at his nuts ‘I’d rather stay in a morgue!’ So sniffs Daniel Craig in the latest Bond vehicle Quantum of Solace when presen­ted with less than salu­bri­ous accom­mod­a­tion in La Paz, Bolivia. Instead of check­ing in, he sweeps off to a flash five […]

Matt Damon: Sexy or Twaspy?

Matt Damon is the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’, accord­ing to People magazine. Perhaps it’s time to cruise the grave­yard. I don’t mean to be cruel — hon­est — but Matt is preppy, not sexy. The two things are not neces­sar­ily ant­ag­on­istic, gran­ted. But in Matt they are. Yes, I know, it’s ‘all a mat­ter of taste’. But […]

Shagging Mr Bond: The Gayness, Bondness and Shagability of the 007s

In hon­our of this week’s launch of the new Bond movie ‘Casino Royale’, fea­tur­ing Daniel Craig as the new, pumped, shaved, very tight-shirted blond Bond — he may be a secret agent but Craig’s pecs have very pub­licly outed his met­ro­sexu­al­ity — here’s my break­down of the dif­fer­ent Bonds accord­ing to their gay­ness, Bondness, and […]

James Bond Comes Out

The new blond Bond has a sur­pris­ing amount in com­mon with the bru­nette ori­ginal – pre­cisely for the reas­ons he’s been bashed, says Mark Simpson (Out, November, 2006) BOND IS BLOND! He’s smooth! He works out! He doesn’t have any eye­brows! He kissed a guy! Ever since English actor Daniel Craig was cast last year as […]
