In the second installment of the New Bond franchise, James brought over

Quantum of Solace (2008)

for Mick to watch.  Actually, I don’t think I’d seen this one before either.  And that doesn’t upset me too much.  It wasn’t terrible.  Not like Moonraker terrible.  Lots of stuff blew up, the hot chick died in a strange fashion, there was a bizarre-looking villain with a big plan that completely failed in a dramatic fashion (though I don’t remember a single diorama).  So, a typical middle of the road Bond movie.  The one thing I did really like about this one: lots of M.  Judi Dench is the leading lady, and I’m not just saying that because she’s probably my favorite actress ever.  See what Mick had to say, he’s with me.  But overall, the film was…well, let’s just say that I totally missed the last 20 minutes of the movie because I was more interested in reading a review on my phone of the Dune miniseries that SciFi aired in 2000.  Which I bought later in the week for $3.  Booyah!

You know, I think I AM the best part of this movie!

Surprisingly enough, we came across a movie I had seen that Mick hadn’t!  Our friend James came over with his BluRay copy of

Casino Royale (2006)

I saw it in the theater, and as much as I liked Daniel Craig as Bond, I wasn’t a fan of the film in general.  I loved the first half but was bored with the second half.  So I was pleasantly surprised when upon a second viewing I really liked the whole film.  Maybe it had to do with being at home, being able to get up and walk around and knit and eat…whatever it was, the back half didn’t seem to drag like it did the first time.  Mick was impressed that it stuck closely to the book and seemed to be really excited to see Felix make an appearance.  Overall, a good experience.  Glad I gave it a second chance.
