A good interview/feature piece on The New Beverly Theater here in LA. It’s arguably one of the best movie houses. No, not location or “historical” purposes but because they have a good time putting up all sorts of movies, from foreign classics to midnight grind house stuff. Often there are theme festivals, such as Edgar Wrights “The Wright Stuff” series and Patton Oswalt’s various sets, not to mention the owner (and now programmer it seems) of the New Beverly, Quentin Tarantino.
I’ve been there a few times, certainly not as much as I’d like, but they’ve had everything from Q and A’s with filmmakers and stars to surprise guests that randomly show up (like David Lynch who showed up at a screening of one of his films unannounced). So it’s a lot of fun.
I haven’t had a chance to listen to all this, but come on..it’s Rian Johnson and Terry Gilliam in a long interview session.

He's great. Just great. You don't need me to tell you that, he's just awesome.
Tough a little too snarky in its writing, the ranking is pretty much right (and sadly a little predictable). The truth is, there's a lot of ways you can approach Bond Villains. You can rank them by their memorable personalities, their schemes and plans or even their style and look.
It's hard to figure out the criteria on this one, it seems mainly by style and uniqueness but every so often you'll have an "influential" reasoning put in there. That's the only way I can explain Dr. No even on this list that high, considering he's the least interesting thing in his own movie.
Awesome Poster Time!
