      Nope there's more!

      Oh sure, you're el Reg, a Brit rag. So of course you think of Daniel Craig only in terms of James Bond.

      (Ok, so we can have a thread about DC vs SC as to who was the better Bond.)

      But there's more to DC than Bond.

      Sorry but I'm really looking forward to his upcoming film, the remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'.

      No offense to Bond fans, (I'm one too), but there's more to this man than just Bond.

      And yeah, he's a fscking class act too!

        It'll have to be darned good...

        The originals of the Millenium Trilogy are very well done and very gritty.

        I don't think that he has enough stomach to play "Kalle F*cking Blomqvist". The German language audio books were also excellent. I hope they don't ruin the remake.

      2. br0die

        Erm, Roger Moore thankyouverymuch.

        Cold, calculating, dry and highly womanising, he did the role perfectly.

        SC looks too friendly, and is a bit too Scottish for the role. Evident by how many Moore films there were, compared to how many Connery.

      3. PatientOne

        They're remaking The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo already? I didn't think it had been out that long...

        As to the best bond... best not start that argument :p It'll be worse than who is the best Doctor...

        It really annoys me that American/British audiences always want remakes of good foreign films.

        "Let Me In" (or whatever it called) was a cinematic abomination in that it was almost a scene-for-scene remake.

        If people are really so scared of subtitles, dub the damned thing! The original is an amazing piece of work that didn't deserve to be sidelined like that.

        At least The Ring added it's own twist, even if its idea of suspense was a hammer in your eye.

          @Ian

          Do not dub either. Look how awful Trollhunter became after they dubbed that.

          Also, do you refer to "Let the Right One In"? I did not realise they Hollywood'ed that one.

          It is true though, all these foreign films I know and love (see: The Experiment, an awesome German movie mimicking the Stanford Prison experiment) are being remade in Hollywood. It is such a shame, because they often do not live up to the original, and all this because people are unwilling to read subs.

          1. Magnus_Pym

            It's not audiences that want English language versions...

            The studios must produce 'x' number of films a year or stand idle, losing money. They will remake, rehash, sequelize, prequelize, extend and ultimately destroy any story just to get 'product' in front of the public. Oh yes, and they don't like taking chances. So of course anything that looks like a safe bet will be made.

            Don't confuse what the public want with what the public get.

      Who/What are the "Kardashian clan"

      I've been asleep for a while.... Who are these people? The last Kardashian clan I heard of were on StarTrek.

      1. pepper

        South Park

        They got killed in South Park, thats all I know about them. I presume they are some sort of clan of britney spears people or something.

      2. Rob Dobs

        OK i'll bite

        Probably a joke, since you'd have to live under a rock to not see them on the daily news in the U.S., but here goes:

        Kardashian Senior (the genetic father of the clan) was an accomplished trial lawyer, who's main claim to any fame was being one of the three lawyers who (successfully) defended OJ Simpson from a murder charge (of Nicole Brown Simpson, even though retarded monkeys could have confirmed that he did indeed kill her).

        Ms. Kardashian (the mother) divorced her lawyer husband (but not his money) some long time ago, and is now married/hooked up with Bruce Jenner (a pretty famous US Olympic Gold Medalist)

        Kim Kardashian (oldest daughter?) was briefly friends with (or at least photographed hanging out with) Paris Hilton (whom released a sex tape) and Kim (who does have a big luscious ass) proceeded to let her boyfriend at the time (failed rapper Ray Jay) film her in a pretty explicit sex tape. (The reason I say living under a rock, because about any hetro male on the internet has seen or downloaded that video or clips of it by now)

        The lawyer father has sinced passed away... (though I think it was after his daughter disgraced his family name with said tape)

        It was the leaked sex tape (combined with small degree the notoriety of the father and step father) that allowed the family to get their own reality TV show on the E network called "Keeping up with the Kardashians" (which like a war seems like it has gone on forever with unending casualties... but probably more like 4 years).

        Kim's younger sisters Courtney (cuter than Kim really) and Chole (built like and tends to date NBA players) also got their own spin off show (called something like "two whores move to Miami"

        Both have dated more than their fair share of pro-athletes (mostly US NBA players) Here they are trying to build out their empire by selling overpriced shit at a stupid store they started.

        Their younger brother Rob, was recently runner-up to the winner (A US war Vet) on the TV show "Dancing with the stars" (or their family members). (BTW that's the winner of DWTS that was the war vet, not Rob, whom probably never worked a honest day in life)

        There are also two even younger girls, whom I believe Bruce Jenner is the genetic father to.

        (As the show progresses on you can just see what horrible drug addicted stripper lives they are most likely in store for)

        That about sums it up

        Short version: Kim Kardashian made a porno with her then boyfriend and her publicist mom leveraged the debacle into a media whore-dom career for the whole family.

          I'm indebted to you for a comprehensive round-up of what sounds like a pretty ghastly troupe of people - I'm so glad I've genuinely never heard of them before (although the OJ lawyer reference rings a vague bell, I suppose) and hope to never again, although I fear I will be seeing their names all the time now. That's the way it goes.

          Out of that very informative post, I have heard of OJ Simpson (the comedy actor), Bruce Jenner (plastic surgery enthusiast) and Paris (wonky-eyed slag). I have heard the name Kardashian bandied about, but not known until now who the hell they were. Maybe I am using the internets wrong, or maybe I am just too old.

            Zack, you got that the wrong way round.

            It should be "OJ Simpson (plastic surgery enthusiast), Bruce Jenner (the comedy actor)"

            And by "plastic surgery enthusiast" I mean "ex-wife decapitator". That is all he should ever get to be remembered for.

          Well, I'd bet that the vast majority of the straight males I know wouldn't have watched or downloaded the clip.

          I'd guess that the general feeling would be that 'accidentally released self-made porn' from would-be celebrities is likely to be even less genuinely acted than stereotyped "Hi madam I'm your plumber/Whoops all my clothes have fallen off" stuff.

          1. Rob Dobs

            but shes is hot

            acted or not, shes a pretty hot tart, and that's also I guess is the reason for a lot of their fame.

            I am ashamed to admit that I have seen several episodes of said show, and thus am partly responsible for their fame in some small way, hence the ability to summarize..

            I was really hoping for some corrections.... surely I got something wrong?....

            and meant no offense by "under a rock" note I said "if you live in US" they quite literally can be on the evening news here almost every night (thankfully not a world wide pandemic).

            Oh and for JimmyPage (commenter above not the Guitarist - though he's welcome to read as well)

            Kim recently married another NBA (thats basketball) star (or pro player anyways), and they had a huge multi-hour TV special just for the event.

            They received millions of dollars in wedding gifts.....

            Then unexpectedly (at least to those that gave said gifts) they divorced after only being married for 2 months.

            And I forgot to mention that Courtney had a baby with the most pretentious spoiled arse on either side of the Atlantic who drinks too much and gets violent.

      They're kind of like Paris Hilton... famous for being famous, or is that notorious. They might have some small amount of talent, but that's not what keeps them in the news... Kim is the latest one to garner headlines, with a million dollar wedding, followed by her filing for divorce 72 days later.

      Paris, because they're two or three or four of a kind.

    Danial Craig as James Bond forever. I think that's exactly what the fictional character would have said. A Hollywood star with some brains for a change. Daniel Craig is the first Hollywood star I can think of to state the bleeding obvious. Not only does he have the right view, but in another first, a Hollywood star lives by his own mantra. Can't ask for more.

This summer when our Congress critters took their annual six week vacation, many of them, especially the RepubliCONS and tea part troglodytes took pains to be anywhere except their field offices, and held no "town meetings" where their constituents could meet and talk with them... some of the few that did have "town meetings" carefully screened those allowed into the room to ensure they didn't have to listen to those who held a different opinion on certain touchy subjects, like jobs, tax cuts for the wealthy, cuts for Medicare, etc... That's part of why Congress has only a 9% approval rating, way lower than even President Obama.

          Beer, since El Reg won't let me enjoy a glass or ten of decent wine... mass quantities of beer, mind you.

        I knew both the creators of Endemol (Joop van den Ende, and John de Mol) personally (when I still lived in the Netherlands, and they were really great guys with an even better bussiness sense, but I still curse the for creating big brother, and all the shows that spawned off them.

        Luckily I escaped to Japan so I "missed" the entire first episode in NL. Not that I enjoyed the silly slapstick of Japanese TV that much, but I prefer to stuff a cactus up my rear-end to watching these faux "reality" shows.

        Last stint in the US the Karblablikans took precedence over the "situation" in Libya, and so did college "football" over the worldcup Rugby (hell, at least I won the sweepstakes with New-Zealand behind my name... That would be the island south-east of Australia, and an actual tough sport with non-padded men for you middle-earthers)

      Democratic political culture is no different to celebrity culture

      When selecting a candidate the average voter:

      a) Goes with the person they know exists

      b) Goes with the person with the right coloured Rosette

      c) Makes a thoughtful rational analysis as to which candidate will best repesent their interests

      Democratic elections and talentless celebrities both repesent popularity contests - there should be no surprise when these domains overlap.

    Fame of the Kardashians

    They are a Public Relations family that has parleyed their own disfunctionality into millions of dollars through "leaked" sex-tapes and "reality" television. It is really sad to see how many people here in the USA actually care about them.

    Paris Hilton

    For you Brits--a Kardashian primer.....

    Kim Kardashian became famous because she was the BFF of the original "highly decorative and talented" celeb--our own Paris Hilton!! Paris had a reality series, which gave Kim her initial entre to the public spotlight (Kim is the daughter of a deceased high-powered Los Angeles lawyer and now step-daughter to gold-medal winning former decathlete Bruce Jenner).

    So Paris begat Kim, who got her own reality series, which made Kim's sisters Courtney and Chloe famous, and now the teenage younger siblings (Jenner's children with the Kardashian's mom) are getting air time and will likely be famous for being famous as well.

    Basically, blame Paris!!

      The true origin of "Kardashian."

      "Kardashian" is a vulgar variant of "Dash it all."

      Bertie: "'Kardashian,' Jeeves!"

      Jeeves "Sorry, sir."

      It's first recorded use was at the Euchre tables in Mayfair in the mid-19th century. A sharper having been dealt a bad hand of cards dashed them against the table claiming there was a cockroach in his chips. It has evolved from throwing down a bad hand of cards then to throwing down a bad hand of life to the cable television companies and making millions.
