Being a gentleman of leisure this week, I've been doing things which aren't: working, drinking or sleeping. It seems like a long time since I've had time for anything else. (OK, apart from eating – obviously I do that too.)

So yeah, and it's really bloody enjoyable. I've not experienced so much as a hint of boredom yet – there's so much to go and do – so I doubt I'll be watching any daytime TV. After all, it is crap. I have just been to the cinema though, something I don't do often enough.

I went to see Casino Royale. It really is a fantastic and decades-overdue return to form for the 007 series. Just when all seemed lost - “How is the franchise going to reinvent itself?” - the answer was: by making exactly this film.

If you like Bond movies, and especially if you've ever wished Bond was more like the character in the Flemming novels, go and see it.

My good friend The Eyechild has written a proper review here, if you want to read something more infomative.
