Quantum of Solace

Quantum of Solace is not as good as Casino Royale, that's first and foremost. The villain is pretty disappointing I must say, he's this skinny 105 lb white guy who isn't threatening or malicious at all, with a henchman who is even more gangly and funny looking. He's just a guy who belongs to "the organization" that Bond is after. You never really find out what Quantum of Solace means, you find out what Quantum is at the end, or at least something that resembles Quantum. I don't want to say this movie is bad, cause its not bad, but it's just not as good as it should have been. Olga Kurelynko is pretty hot though. Other than that it has the same ole M and Bond back and forth jokes, the same Bond charm, some good action scenes, and the ending leaves you inquiring more similar to Casino Royale. I thought the locations they went to were kind of boring looking too, they all seemed to kind of run together instead of having a different path. It's like run down South American village, to poor South American slums, to a nice villa in Cairo for a few seconds, then over to a desert.

Not to mention the opening song, which most have heard, is terribad.

P.S. The opening song did indeed suck donkey dick. Ugh. What has been heard, cannot be unheard.

New Trek trailer is playing on some prints of the flick but not all. It will available online on Sunday.

The action scenes are quick cut because they are trying to follow the "Bourne" flick formula.

I read they even hired the stunt guys and editors from those flicks.

Good. I was going to see it anyway but now I know I won't be disappointed.

I don't think Star Trek will be able to live up the hype of that film.

The action sequences in Bourne were much better. If these guys were going for the copycat, I give them a FAIL in that department. The opening sequence is particularly goofy (Ebert pegged that observation).

But like I said, it doesn't detract that much from the movie.

I think you'll enjoy it. It definitely passes my "didn't feel cheated" test. Most of the packed theater applauded when it was over.

I believe it will surpass the hype of the film.

QoS, underwhelming. I absolutely loved Casino Royale, and Craig is probably my favorite Bond, above Lazenby (who I still maintain was the best, but never got a fair shake because he followed Connery).

My wife liked Quantum, and while I didn't dislike it, it's well below CR for me. I still like Craig's Bond, even in this one.

The midnight showing at AMC 30 had the Star Trek trailer in the beginning. It looks cool, but I can already tell it's going to be like the new Star Wars were and thats ALOT of special effects. I like the look of the guy who plays Spock, I just hope they don't screw up Kirk.
