And your S villain of the day is:
From the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, Raoul Silva is the ultimate delicious villain. Oh man, I loved this guy. Played perfectly by Javier Bardem, and really just made the whole movie. A now cyberterrorist, Silva was once a special agent like Bond, but after enduring countless torture and solitary confinement to give up information, Silva turned against the only woman he ever had as a maternal role model: M. A woman who gave him up to the Chinese government.
Besides the fact he's a genius, what makes him so dangerous, is this former link to M and England. He knows the biz, so to speak, and knows what moves they'll make before they do. His mania is his flaw, though, and eventually leads to his demise by Bond. But up until that point, everything he does is fascinating and riveting.
Bardem truly stole the show in this film--one of the best Bond films ever, IMO.
And your setting of the day ...
From galleons to yachts to cruise ships to star ships, using a ship for your setting will not steer you wrong. (Pun intended!) It offers a sense of adventure and entrapment all at the same time, and so much can happen on a voyage! The dangers are countless! You can add a sense of antique charm with historical ships, or a sense of technological intrigue with sips of the future. Probably why so many stories and films use ships for the settings.
And on that note, wishing you a bon voyage for your blog visits today!
