Bezos Jeff Bezos.
Certainly not the same ring as the introduction of a British secret agent. But that .5. billion billion is not right, right?
Amazon did not soon announce a multi 2 million bid to acquire MGM Studios – the 226-movie catalog, including the entire James Bond – when social media, particularly Twitter, released its usual critical review on Wednesday.
The meme-worthy snack was the order of the day as Amazon reaffirmed that what Amazon wants, Amazon buys, the biggest deal is to snatch the stored Hollywood studio because it bought it and checked out with Whole Foods for Food 1.7 billion. There may be many applicable bond titles, but “the world is not enough” makes one feel particularly good today.
So forget Lex Luthor for a minute. Bezos feels more timed as a Bond villain:

MGM has a kind of beautiful gross irony, due to the anti-global concerns and vertical integration that changed the entire entertainment landscape in the United States in 1948. DJ Jail 1 got into a targeted Hollywood stud …
