MOVIE: Quantum of Solace

[This entry is ATF.]

Tonight, right after work, I went to go see the new James Bond film Quantum of Solace at the Rave.

I'm feeling incapable of putting thoughts in words, and then putting those words in a meaningful order, so here's random below thoughts movie:

  • definitely more action than in Casino Royale but story was still very good.
  • the tight editing (a la Bourne) of the opening car chase and of the other early action sequences were too jarring for me.
  • the bad guy in this film, Dominic, kinda looks like Le Chiffre from CR, except with a little Sam Rockwell.
  • I didn't know white, button-up dress shirts could show off a muscled chest... niiice (good job and thank you to both Tom Ford and Daniel Craig).
  • I love the end credit music -- "Crawl, End Crawl" by Four Tet; wanted to buy it but not available on iTunes or anywhere else. UPDATED: A nice-quality-ed version is now available on YouTube (listen below!).
  • after I left the theatre, I wanted to go for a run as is... in my jeans and polo; I was jealous of all the exercise 007 was getting.

    "Crawl, End Crawl" by Four Tet:

    Anyways, I didn't go for a run, but I did go home and applied Bonus S to my yard in the dark. Then I heard other people outside... at night? Oh yeah, the Shuttle Launch!. It lit up the sky, but only briefly.

    I also was able to catch up with my across-the-street neighbors, which was cool. Zadie even gave me a Lychee-flavored Japanese marble soda drinks. Thank you Zadie!. I gave her and Willow some Yan Yan.

    Anyways, I'm not sure which DC Bong film I like more quite yet. I like them both for different reasons, and I suppose time will tell. I though this was a very competent sequel.
