Casino Royale [John Derbyshire]
Saw the new Bond movie. As Bond movies go, I'd give it 7 out of 10. This new guy is good—possibly second to Connery. He doesn't look quite right, though—too "cut" and beefy. This diminishes the gentlemanly quality that Connery carried off so well. Gentlemen are not "cut." Being "cut" speaks of vanity and trying too hard, both distinctly ungentlemanly. He is also a bit too hard—the balance not quite right there.
I have no idea what that last sentence means either.
