For years now I've been excited about rumors that they're going to film "Without Remorse" by Tom Clancy and yesterday I learned that there actually is a new "Jack Ryan" movie in the cinema.

Ok. Not quite what I expected but it's a start. So let's take a look...

Unlike its predecessors, it is not an adaptation of a particular Clancy novel, but rather an original story. Chris Pine stars in the title role
*sigh* There are not enough palms in the world... Was Ben Affleck not enough? Did you have to go with Captain baby face?

Yeah, well, Star Trek's latest leading actress looks like a 12yo girl. I don't like this trend.

EDIT:
Oh, and the lead actor looks like a high school freshman.

In ChitChat, that seems to go without saying.
Unless you're talking about 20th century pop culture, the locals just get confused and irritable and require a nap to process all of this highfalutin' new technology.

The interesting thing is that he fits the role age wise. And it's not his fault that his most noteworthy role to date was written by a hack.

But couldn't they at least make him look his own age? He looks barely old enough to vote on that poster...

I think we need a petition. Mack Bolen, The Executioner featuring Mack Bolen. The idea sells itself.

Well being Daniel Craig was 36 when he filmed Casino Royale, and Sean Connery was a whole 4 years younger at the age of 32 when he filmed Dr. No, I don't think they are getting younger.

Maybe men back in those days looked older and more distinguished.

What I was meaning to say is the Bond films go through several different actors in the series as well as film plots not featured in the original books.

I'm not much of a Bond fan, but I will say Daniel Craig does an excellent job of it, even when the plot's baffling (Solace) or, let's admit it, constantly shifting between idiotic and boring (Skyfall).

I think it has more to do with Craig being up against Sean friggin Connery. I personally think Craig is doing a great job, especially now that he's got a bit of an aged look in Skyfall. And whatever you may think of him, at least he never looked as baby like as Pine...

Pine was 29 when he he played in the new Star Trek, William Shatner was only 33.

Again, I think actors back in those days just seemed to look "older" more mature.

We got one Destroyer movie and I think they gave up on anything like it.


BTW You need 150 lbs of Mack Bolan and Stony Man paperbacks?

A contemporary of the Bond novels is Nick Carter: Spymaster


The first few are actually quite good for spy pulp trash
