    Original Sin

    How can a movie with two of the hottest actors in Hollywood be so tiresome and tedious. This is neither engrossing enough to be thrilling nor scintillating enough to be erotic. I just wish it had been funny-bad instead of just a sleepy, stuffy drudge.

    Thank jeebus for Letterboxd. For years I've been doing the "Bond Marathon" before the latest 007 adventure. For years I thought I was the only sad fucker who endured all twenty something films in preparation for the next slice of kiss kiss, bang bang.
