Posted by Brandy Dean January 4, 2013 0 Comment 4211 views

Well now the holidays are over (boo!). Pretty Clever Film Gal transformed the yule tide season into one mega Bond-a-thon. In late November, I had never seen a single Bond movie. Now I only 5 titles plus Skyfall left.  As a matter of fact I holidayed so hard it’s almost a relief to get back to regularly scheduled life, which includes getting back to the Film Friday Weekly Round Up. Happy reading and happy viewing!
