I went to see the new James Bond film the other day and all I could think of before actually seeing the film - apart from how much the bloody popcorn was gonna cost me - was WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL WITH THIS BOND GIRL BEING A FIGURE FOR WOMEN TO LOOK UP TO? She must do something pretty awesome in the film. Or be a figure for women to look up to... right?
BUT NO. As mean as this sounds she wasn't the leading lady of the film in the slightest. Judi Dench was. And I loved the film. But more so because of her. She is the kind of woman we should all aspire to be like - well even if we are talking about her character M.
The line that really made it clear - "I'll leave when the job is done."
She's not the sexy bond gyal who gets it on with that blue eyed hunk - yeah he's aite, I know a lot of you guys think he's hot stuff but he's warm in my eyes. She's not the one wearing the stunning dress with the thigh high split. She's the one who's worked hard, gone with her instincts and always focuses on her goal.
I'd rather be like her that the girl who doesn't need wing mirrors to drive. You'll get that once you've seen the film. GO WATCH IT.
