Bonding Over the Weekend

The DH and I decided to hit a movie last weekend. We were both excited that we had the same first choice -- Quantum of Solace. It's the next chapter in the ongoing James Bond series. I'll admit to being a Sean Connery fan as far as actors in the part go. Funny that he was the first. I guess he defined the stage presence. Daniel Craig is certainly different from other Bond's, but I've decided I like his ruggedness. I could go for a little more suave, but rugged is good too.

The movie is filled with chase scenes, things blowing up, and people running for their lives. There was a LOT of fire in this one. Overall, the action moved along and I enjoyed the movie. I'd even recommend it to anyone who enjoys an action flick. I've heard criticism that it's not "true" Bond like we've got to know and love, but I thought it worked.

I've been protesting Daniel Craig as Bond. I still haven't seen Casino Royale, and we own it. Loved Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Pierce Brosnan. They all had/have dark hair.

This was the first Bond that I chose not to watch. I've given up hope that they will ever go back to the classic Bond that I love so well. Any movie can have killing/action/distruction. I miss the gadgets, the bizare deaths, and the cocky humor. Isn't professional asasination supposed to be fun anymore?
