Why do they have to make James Bond so awesome?

February 2007

Why do they have to make James Bond so awesome? It's not believable that someone could be like that. Why not make him more of a normal guy? Let's see him arguing with a bus driver over an expired transfer ticket or getting his necktie stuck in escalator. Why not have him downing an entire bottle of sherry in one hour and then calling up his mother and weeping because he thinks his eyes have become permanently crossed? Wouldn't you much rather see someone like that? Someone like you? Someone like me?

Oh man Matt, some many things to reply to lately!

Its because real people are everywhere, and they're boring! Anyway, there are lots of real people movies, e.g. the station agent (which is one of my favourites). I guess it just takes an extra-ordinary guy to do 007's job ;)
