James Bond vs. Millennials

The Daily Mail, as a journalistic source, is generally prone to frequent inaccuracies, but Rod Walker nonetheless thought that this article was hilarious.  The James Bond movies have been available on Amazon Prime for some time now, and apparently some millennials have seen the Sean Connery and Roger Moore movies for the first time and been offended.

Rod Walker’s thought: wait until they read the original books! (Admittedly this is unlikely.) The film versions of From Russia With Love and Goldfinger actually toned down some of the harsher elements of the books.

This is one of the reason why RW enjoys older books and movies – they generally have a vibrancy and a vigor that modern works, in their fear of offending anyone, often lack.
