When I was on my movie-hunt yesterday searching for stuff about Scream 4 and the next Jurassic Park film (and also watching Air Force One on TV!) I came across a few good blogs, including ABC News Articulate, featuring “Movie Minutiae” posts on movies like Jaws and Waterworld. I like both of these sea tales for different reasons, despite the fact that the latter had the cack kicked out of it.

First question – what’s wrong with it?! I think it’s really cool! There’s a whole lot of hate over it at the BBC website at the moment. I mean Jesus, we’re talking 90% pure, unadulterated hate. I think the problem is that it is for a Bond film, and everyone’s so quick off the mark to call it crap unless it’s exactly what they thought it would be. Before White and Keys were revealed as the singers I thought it was gonna be Duffy, who I’m sure would have done an ace little number. Muse would have been perfect for the job but I don’t think they were ever asked. I reckon Winehouse was hit and miss – she could either have done something fantastic, or frankly, pap. The fact that Ronson scrapped whatever it is that they produced is immaterial, he’s not exactly the next John Lennon, is he? Anyway, this tune is no way as bad as people are saying, it’s pretty catchy and I’m sure it’ll grow on me even more. It seems like people just want to hark on about how much they know about Bond and music, and why change is bad. Sod em!
