Transporter: The Series (Season 2)

Violante Placido as Caterina Boldieu

Violante Placido as Caterina Boldieu

I liked this series a lot. As I included in the season I review, it included lots of action (martial arts-like), cars and car stunts, and pretty girls with few clothes. For this season, you can see some action, a few car stunts and no girls without clothes. The prettier girl around is, probably, Violante Placido, as Caterina Boldieu, but always in decent clothes.

They say a new season will be prepared. I am hoping at least the car stunts get back, because this is getting more and more distant from the Transporter character, and more and more near the 007 franchise.

Also, I am not yet sure why all car makes are removed from the cars. As you can see bellow, there is a Renault truck without its logo. No idea why the logo was removed. I think anybody will see that is a Renault. The same happens with all the Ford, Nissan, Kia, Skoda and other car makes that appear in the series. I think the only two makes I saw were Audi, the one that probably sponsors the show, because it is the transporter’s car, and a Mazda, that probably slipped from the censure, as it appears by, let’s say, accident, at it is just a parked car that get some focus.

Octopussy (1983)

I confess: I didn’t really watch this movie either. It was on TV, I was peeking from time to time. But fortunately enough to peek at the right time to see some camel toes. And that is mostly everything I can tell about the movie. Other than that, just another James Bond movie (not properly a fan).

Die Another Day (2002)




The truth is that I am cheating. I didn’t really watch the full movie. It was on the TV and I was peeking from time to time. But it is a James Bond movie. You are not really interested in the story. You know it. Always the same. You probably are interested in the cars (a green jaguar with a shotgun, and a silver aston martin), but I pass.

You know me. My interest normally goes to the girls. And in this movie you can choose a brunette or a blond. You can go for Halle Berry, or Rosamund Pike. They are also nice girls, with a fit body. But, I can’t really resist a nice smiling blond…

007 – Quantum of Solace (2008)

Gemma Arterton

Gemma Arterton @ 007 Quantum of Solace

After Get Smart, a less clumsy super agent, 007 in Quantum of Solace. Do not continue or I will give some spoilers. Not that I will tell you the full story but I need to do some complains:

  1. first, there is no excuse to wreck the Aston Marin in the first minutes of the movie. Instead they could offer it, and I would take care of it with love.
  2. second, there is no excuse to let Mrs. Fields (Gemma Arterton) to die. Instead… yes, I would take care of her with love. Beautiful girl.

Now, enough of complains. The movie is full of action, and that is nice. There are no dead scenes (as it existed in other movies from the series, when 007 goes to bed with girls). The only scene related to that would be the one above, but it is quick. Oh, and it has Gemma.
