My ears are bleeding

Die Another Day: 3 Stars. Despite the truly dismal Madonna-sung theme, this film was a worthy addition to the Bond franchise. This 20th entry was a whole lot of fun, with all the gizmos, babes, and shaken martinis I've come to love. The addition of Halle Berry as Jinx started off a little rough, despite the coral-colored bikini she so ably wore, with some leaden dialogue, but she picked things up nicely once everyone visited Iceland and the action kicked into high gear. Overall, a quality flick with a good story and extra-fun bad guys. Kudos to Rosamund Pike as Miranda Frost, who managed to get hotter with every passing scene.
