Kinks’ Davies Not a Fan of New James Bond
The Kinks' Ray Davies says that he's got some issues with the latest James Bond movie. Davies, who's been known to make comments with tongue planted firmly in cheek, told Uncut that he's planning on missing the 007 thriller, saying, "I don't want to see the new James Bond film because I've met the guy and he's small. No disrespect to Daniel Craig, he's a really good actor, I've seen him in many films doing great workmanlike performances."
Davies, a longtime Bond fan went on to say: "It's become corporate. You've always got the feeling with James Bond before that it's a few little, bad gadgets. Now it's too technical. I'm still into schoolboy adventure with heroes and villains, that's what James Bond is. They're trying to make him psychological. . . It doesn't interest me."
