TAKEN 2 SKYFALL: A double review

Taken 2

Fashion is ruled out here. I will make this short. This movie is about action and drama. It also reminds us that we can hone our skills and senses without the use of technologies. That is how animals migrate and we being GPS dependent for our mobility. We have already lost our sense of time. Let us not lose our sense of direction as well. Go watch it to get what I mean and happy viewing... J

Skyfall 007

Since DANIEL CRAIG took the helm of 007, I was NOT impressed. Gone are the days of PIERCE BROSNAN and his suave style. With minimum gadgets, fashion and the absence of a Bond car, this is definitely a downfall. Maybe this is a new concept which is not my expectations. This time round, the 50th Anniversary James Bond franchise have mega disappointed me. Even the website is lack of visual downloads. The plot is not new and reminiscent of ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’, where ‘information is mightier than the sword’. Have the production lost its creativity? For fans who want all those mentioned, use your money elsewhere. For die-hard fans like me, go catch it and share your disappointment, if you have... L

Mascots in my life!

I hate the London 2012 logo and did not look forward to this event. However, their mascots hypnotised me with its massive eye! They make me look at this event from a different view. It has made up my love with London 2012. I enjoyed this event very much with the Closing Ceremony as its climax. With a story behind its design and inspiration for a legacy (and me too), I am happy to support and be part of the 30th Olympiad. Welcome to my life Wenlock and Mandeville and be on a lookout for me ;-)

I was sent my old order and given an uninformed out of stock refund! Mandeville key ring is low quality :-( Better wrong than nothing at all, right? True. Appealing for the correct order now. Will wait patiently if I can purchase more Wenlock and Sports Collection Coins! Will keep you posted ;-)

Finally, my second batch of Wenlocks, Mandeville and Sports Collection 50p Coins has arrived in class! I purchased these from a toy company because London 2012 Shop has closed. Surprisingly, they arrived by DHL carrier services. They (souvenirs) are a lucky lot! These complete my London 2012 collection, I think... I really miss London 2012... ToT

I guess from my obsession with these mascots, you know them by now. Classic Figurines, front view (top) and side view (bottom) respectively
