    Go see the movie....

    THIS movie is all about smarts, chases, and Homage to the old classic Bonds Films he is whining about.

    When you remove that part, he is complaining about the "gym rat." When you say training to get that look means you "missed conversations blah blah blah" you are targeting that culture. You write articles, you know the time involved, that little phrases applies to you as well.

    He is complaining IMO. No, that is not a dig at your profession, it is pointing out his logical fallacy.

    Oh, I recognize that it is intentionally inflammatory language towards guys like us. Also, I mentioned I haven't seen the movie yet. So, if it is as you say then that removes any substance I may have perceived from the article and just leaves the whining.

    Assuming you have proper taste in movies that I would assume from some of your other posts and he is just complaining, it's still not as bad as I thought it would be from the excerpt.

    Gotcha, that makes complete sense.

    Complacency and negligence (in fitness) are issues, but this ass-hat is tipping the scales in more ways than one.

    Ten minutes of any one episode is too much Jersey Shore.

    Daniel Craig is married to Rachel Weisz; that alone is enough incentive to stay in shape.

    I think the Daniel Craig Bond movies actually show Bond thinking and working on his feet better than some of the "classic" ones, where Bond wasn't as ripped but got out of sticky situations with deus ex machina gadgets from Q.

    This new series is definitely more grounded in reality that the last one with Brosnan. The "gritty re-boot" approach was big improvment in this case JMHO.

    We do see Bond improvising with his environment a lot more as oposed to the Magic Feathers and Chekov's Gun tropes common to the campy variety of Bond films.

    Choen's just butt-hurt that he's let himself go when others of his generation are maintaing a level of helth that is beyond his comprehension. His ego is preventing him from making a possitive life descision based on his revelation. Instead of getting inspired he's lashing out. (Not terribly "intelectual" of him in my opinion...)

    I will admit that I agree that spending time in a gym seems like a waste of time. Tried it for a month or so and found it really dull and unappealing. I also freely admit it's part of why I'm in bad shape.

    The real reason for that is that at some point, society decides that we're too old to "play" on a playground and need to go inside and "work out" in more structured ways on much less fun machines. I think the Play/Work mindset is part of it.

    This is instead of enjoying ourselves during self-directed physical activity out in the open. Part of it is that our imaginations become less powerful as we age, too.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go outside and try to get in a snowball fight before it all melts. How's that for living, Mr. Cohen?

    Just sounds like a creepy old guy who likes to score young girls using his "experience" and is not happy with fit, older guys showing him up for what he is...
