Damn you 2020! Damn you straight to the deepest, darkest dungeon SPECTRE has!
Sean Connery, hands down THE James Bond, the most iconic man/spy ever to hit the cinema screen, passed away at 90 years of age. As a young man I loved James Bond movies. Everything about Bond was encapsulated in Connery’s performance and he has been my favorite actor in the role ever since.
Bond wasn’t his only great role, however, and he starred in plenty of great, exciting films in both action oriented and dramatic roles.
I have a feeling that on more than one occasion Death set foot in his doorstep, took one look at him, and said, “Screw this, I’ll come back later”.
I know in his advanced age he wasn’t looking all that great, and I know we all have to go at some point, but good grief, 2020 is a nightmare.
Sir Connery, I salute you, and I will make sure my next martini is “shaken, not stirred” in your honor.
