Sorry for the long time no blogging, but the folks are in town and we've been busy. Last night the Husband and I got to see Quantum of Solace! It was really good. I don't care what any of the critics say-- it is great, and I'll take a more Bourne-like-Bond any day of the week, rather than the Pierce Brosnan/Timothy Dalton cheese fests that the franchise had become.

Not to mention it was cool to see that the "Quantum" lapel pin logo for the supervillian group really looked like the same "Q" that is used by the QuickBurger chain.

Also--we saw a preview for Star Trek.

Sylar as Spock. It could work. We're totally going to see it.

Tonight's adventure was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with the Husband and the Dad. Okay this flick is like 2 hours and 45minutes long. It was good, and the acting was good but it was a bit depressing and though I know they made it critical to the story arc, I could have done without the whole story-within-a-story diary-reading framework. Brad Pitt could have just narrated the whole thing. And we really didn't need him to age backwards completely, couldn't he have just disappeared while still in his prime? Just a thought.

Next on the list? Valkyrie.
