    ★★★★

    Not really a review, but I jotted down my thoughts during the film:

    Great, classic James Bond title: No Time to Die

    Actual question from wife: What's James bond's real name?

    No Time to Die, aka ‘James Bond does horror?’

    Some really good and fun action in this.

    ★½

    Q: What compelled me to watch two Ashton Kutcher comedies on back-to-back days?

    I watched The Boss’s Daughter the day prior

    A: Vodka & Bernie Mac

    Interesting trivia from IMDb: At an estimated cost of $100,000, digital effects were used to remove Ashton Kutcher's red Kabbalah bracelet in every scene in which he appeared.
