Make it count

I sincerely apologize for my lack of posts.  I spent the end of last week and most of the weekend doped up on pain medicine.  The pain from my rib crash has been pretty awful.  Today was my first day without Vicodin, and it was ok.  Toward the end of the school day, the pain started getting to me a bit, but it was not unbearable.  I am on the mend, but it is certainly taking a long time.

But over the weekend I also saw Quantum of Solace, the new Bond movie that I was very excited about.  As it turns out, that excitement was misguided.  Quantum of Solace is by no means a bad movie; it just is not very good.  Daniel Craig continues to be the best James Bond ever, as his brooding spy is light-years better than past Bonds.  However, the story line of this new offering left me a little flat, and at times I found myself bored.  Many of the action scenes went on too long, and it looked like Marc Forster (a very talented director in other films) was trying too hard to make some Bourne-like scenes but not succeeding very well.

Maybe it is unfair of me to expect a film to live up to Casino Royale, the best Bond film ever.  But they could at least try.

I agree 100% about Quantum of Solace.

I really really really enjoyed the dogfight. Like it made my night. But I'm a special case considering my studies in school.
