VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – If anyone thinks the Vatican newspaper is still a staid broadsheet that publishes only religious news and harsh papal edicts, consider this: On Tuesday it ran not one but five articles about the new James Bond film.
“Skyfall” gets a rave review in l’Osservatore Romano, which calls it one of the best of the 23 James Bond films made over the past 50 years.
In the main article, titled “007 License to Cry,” the newspaper says the latest incarnation of the world’s most famous spy is a rather good one because it makes him less of a cliché, and “more human, capable of being moved and of crying: in a word, more real”. [Source]
Can I have a License to Cry that l’Osservatore Romano published five articles on the new Bond film? I like engaging the culture but it can go overboard.
After the l’Osservatore Romano recommended some of the best rock albums I previously created this.
Where can I get a copy? The shades make Papa Benedict look so cool 🙂
Of course, you realize that this will be reported by the “news” media as “VATICAN ENDORSES NEW JAMES BOND FILM”.
@Will: For all we know, maybe he does. Be fun to see a variation where James Bond is defending the Vatican.
Now there’s an issue I got to pick up! Rocking cool Pope! 😀
