Arrrgghhh!!

This weekend, I've been both too busy and too ill to get to the movie theater to see Casino Royale, which makes the first time since 1979 I haven't seen a new Bond film on its opening weekend.

Maybe tomorrow.

On a completely unrelated note, I discovered this weekend that Fox's next Mr. Moto Collection, due out on February 13th (Hon, if you're looking for a Valentine's gift...?), will include not only the four remaining Peter Lorre Moto films – Mr. Moto's Gamble, Mr. Moto in Danger Island, Mr. Moto Takes a Vacation, and Mr. Moto's Last Warning – but the 1965 "Bond-inspired" re-invention, The Return of Mr. Moto, starring Henry Silva as the inscrutable Japanese agent.

Cool! I've always wanted to see that flick, regardless of its poor reputation! What a great "Bonus Feature" from Fox.

I've never seen a Mr. Moto movie, just read some of the books and the comics from Moonstone.

I'd like to see the Henry Silva movie. Even though the movie itself may be bad, Silva makes every movie he's in better.
