In Turkey, while chasing a mercenary who has stolen a hard-disk drive with a list of NATO agents, Bond is nearly killed by friendly fire (on M.'s order) and believed dead. Learning that M.I.6 headquarters has been the target of an attack, Bond returns, and despite failling his atptitude test, M. sends him back into the field to track the man who stole the data and find his employer. Bond kills the man before having any information out of him, but finds a clue that leads him to a casino in Macau. There he meets a girl who promised to lead him to the killer's employer, on the condition Bond frees her from him. The employer is Raoul Silva, a former British agent turned rogue, who seeks revenge on M., whom he blames for his capture and being tortured on his last assignment. Bond eventually captures Silva and takes him to M.I.6. backup headquarters, while M. is summoned to answer for the loss of the list of agents in front of a committee. Silva's capture was actually planned all along, and he escapes through the Underground network. Disguised as a policeman, he tries to kill M. in the audience room, but Bond arrives just in time to save her. He takes her to a safe place in Scotland, the Skyfall manor where Bond had grown up before his parent's death. Helped by the old housekeeper, they prepare to receive Silva's men. The manor is destroyed in the process, and M. is wounded. Bond eventually kills Silva before he kills M., but she dies soon after.

Medieval SuperHeroes

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Books ]

ISBN: 9782915653434

© Amazon.fr

Orlando est le gérant d'une pizzeria dans la Nouvelle-Courbevoie, au XXIè siècle. En réalité, il vient du XIVè, où il était un super-héros connu sous le nom d'Alban le Blanc. Ses anciens compagnons sont à sa recherche afin de lui demander de les aider à combattre la Princesse Microbe, super-vilaine responsable d'une épidémie de peste au moyen-âge. Orlando refuse d'abord, mais finit par se laisser convaincre de repartir à l'époque de la guerre de cent ans. À la Nouvelle-Courbevoie, deux autres super-héros rencontrent une équipe de super-héros amateurs qui ont découvert qu'une compagnie pharmceutique se prépare à une action mahonnête, dans laquelle le pape semble impliqué. Ils découvrent peu à peu qu'afin de redonnner la foi aux chrétiens, le pape a passé un accord avec la Princesse Microbe pour provoquer une épidémie de peste au XXIè siècle. Le Saint, un super-héros immortel, a prédit la réincarnation d'Eternal Savior (dont une incarnation a été connue sous le nom de Jésus Christ) en la personne d'Alban le Blanc, son retour sauvant le Monde de la peste. Mais en fait c'est le colocataire asocial d'Orlando, emmené au XIVè siècle un peu par hasard par une autre super-héroïne qui s'avère être Eternal Savior. Ce dernier sauve le Paris du XIVè siècle de la peste, avant de repartir au XXIè siècle combattre le pape, la peste et la Princesse Microbe. Ce dernier est aidé par la version XXIè siècle du Saint, aveuglément fidèle au pape, tandis que les autres super-héros, accompagnés de la version XIVè siècle du Saint, s'opposent à lui. Une bataille forcément épique s'ensuit, avant que tout ne rentre dans l'ordre.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Doctor Parnassus, the leader of a traveling theater troupe has made a bet with the Devil and takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations and present them with a choice between self-fulfilling enlightenment or gratifying ignorance. They rescue a hanging man, Tony, whom they slowly discover to be a swindler, although he claims to be wanting to redeem himself. Parnassus had made a pact with the devil to regain his youth (so that he could court a woman) in exchange for his first-born child. Learning this, Valentina, the doctor's daughter, enters the mirror, soon followed by Tony. Discovering that Tony really is a fraud, she gives herself to the devil, but the latter finds this victory too easy and gives Parnassus a chance to free his daughter in exchange for Tony's soul. Valentina is free, but the devil cannot say where she is. Parnassus emerges from the Imaginarium years later, finds out his daughter has married and has a daughter.
