Watched two movies last night. A German one and a Danish one. Mother Küsters Goes to Heaven and Adam's Apples. The former was very good, the latter merely good. Both were dark. But that's neither here nor there. What excited me most about the double feature was that each film included a Bond villain from the two best Bond flicks since the early days of Roger Moore. Gottfried John, who you may remember as General Arkady Grigorovich Ourumov in Goldeneye, plays a loathsome magazine reporter in Küsters. Mads Mikkelsen, who plays a terrorist banker who bleeds from his tear ducts in Casino Royale, plays a priest who bleeds from his ears in Adam's Apples.

In related news, the title of the latest Bond installment was revealed today. Quantum of Solace is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad title.
