From Australia, with ignorance

Everyone in the entertainment and media world is all abuzz about the new Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko.

Understandable. The lady is undeniably gorgeous, and she got to play a rather unprecedented role... her character doesn't sleep with 007 and apparently is cast as a more than just another great body pretty face.

But come on. What kind of a lame title is From the Ukraine with love for this article?

It's understandable that media writers and/or editors would try to be cute and capitalize on a pop culture metaphor like the title of a well-known and related movie, "From Russia with Love."
News flash: It's 2008. Putting "the" in front of "Ukraine" is as dated as the movie the title refers back to.

No wonder the newspaper industry as we know it is dying. Isn't the "news" supposed to be, well, new?

Oh well. Long live the blogosphere!

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing Quantum of Solace, blunders notwithstanding. Bond films are so entertaining.
