（原文） HI readers, can you believe that 2011 is ALREADY ALMOST OVER??? And this will be my last article for the year.
First of all, news in about Daniel Craig, who is currently filming the latest chapter of the James Bond franchise, "Skyfall".Recently, when he was asked about how things were going with the filming of the current Bond film, producer Michael G. Wilson had nothing but praises for Craig in his role as the suave superspy. He said in a recent interview, "Daniel's been a terrific Bond, a superb actor, and a terrific man. The fans love him and I don't think there's a better actor to play the part. Filming has gone very well so far and I'd love Daniel to surpass Roger's record and do eight pictures. Daniel's been an absolute pleasure to be around because he takes the role so seriously. There's really no one more passionate about making these films work than him-he's a film maker's dream. A lot of people have said that Daniel's been their favorite Bond since Sean Connery, and I can't argue with them. He's done a great job."
So, Bond lovers, let's do the math....So far, Daniel Craig has only done two Bond films, which by the way, is the same amount of Bond films that Timothy Dalton starred in. So add the following film, and it will make it three. That will make it one less than Pierce Brosnan, who did four Bond films. Sean Connery starred in six "official" Bond film, but if you include the off-shoot Thunderball remake "Never Say Never Again", then that ties Sean Connery with Roger Moore for 7 007's.The only problem is the pace with which they have been making the last few Bond films. When Sean Connery was Bond, he did five Bond films in SIX years. Whereas recently it seems that they are taking about two or three years just to come out with ONE Bond film.What do YOU think, readers? Are you ready to see Daniel Craig posing as Bond for another five films?
Now one of the big things that children do during the Christmas season, is for them to write out their Christmas list for Santa. I used to remember how excited I would always be, coming up with the list, and then giving it to my mom and dad to "give to Santa". And even in this modern Facebook/Twitter/iPhone era, kids all over the United States continue to do that every year, waiting in anticipation until Christmas day, when they rush to the tree to see if Santa brought them all the things on their list. Well, one little girl who has QUITE the Christmas list is Suri Cruise. In fact, her Christmas list is probably worth about $130,000 this year!!! Her list this year includes: -A Pony -Diamond Earrings (really???? are Katie and Tom REALLY going to give her DIAMOND EARRINGS????) -And gowns that make her look like a princess (and if you have seen some of the dresses that Suri wears, these aren't cheap EITHER) According to sources close to Tom and Katie, they LOVE the Christmas season and always make sure that they make the experience as close to perfect as they can for Suri. So I GUESS that means that little Suri WILL be getting all the things on her Christmas list?
Finally a new couple alert??? It seems that recently Cameron Diaz and P. Diddy have been seen kissing all over New York, in various night clubs. AND just last month they were seen in Beverly HIlls kissing as well!! Now is that one of the WEIRDEST couples to recently emerge from Hollywood, or what? The two A-listers HAVE been good friends for a long time, but hey...maybe there's a future...?
And now...since it is the end of the year and this is my last article for 2011, here is my "WORST of 2011"...actually I can pretty much sum it up in one word...KARDASHIANS!!!! yuch!!! It seemed like here in the United States people just couldn't get enough of the Kardashian family...they were ALL over the television, and also all over the magazines. Everywhere you looked it was "Something, something...Kardashian". Then Kim Kardashian got married to NBA player Kris Humphries in the "dream wedding" of the year, and less than two months later decided to get a divorce. And all of a sudden, the family that could do NO WRONG was being bashed everywhere in the media and by fans. People started complaining that the wedding was just a big "hoax" and that everything that Kim and her family did was being set up for television. And now the Kardashian family seems to have realized that they ARE NOT invincible. (THANK GOD!!) And with NBA player Lamar Odom (formerly of LA LAKERS) being traded to the Dallas Mavericks this month, Khloe kardashian (who is married to Lamar Odom) has moved to Texas to be with her hubby. So the "super team" of the Kardashian family has been split up!! Does this mean that we might see LESS of the Kardashian family? I SURE HOPE SO!!!
Well everyone, I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Holiday!!!! See you in 2012!
