So I just finished watching James Bond 007: Quantum of Solace. I have to say I am loving this new style of Bond movies that star Daniel Craig.

This movie has it all the usual refinements.

  • Girls: Check
  • Cars: Check
  • Guns: Check
  • Action: Check
  • Tech: Semi-Check

The only real tech in this movie was from while we were inside MI6. Something we haven’t seen really much of in the previous bond movies. Q is sadly missing from this movie, however, I don’t know how he could have provided support to Bond in this movie.

Other than that, this movie was really well done!

Rating: 8.5 out of 10 stars.

Iron Man

Posted by Shane

So who hasn’t seen Iron Man? This movie is one of the two marvel movies I enjoy. The other being X-Men I, II, and III. I wasn’t really a fan of the The Incredible Hulk, other than I like to see the Cameo that Stark plays in the film. I hear it’s very minor. I know this review is way late. I saw this movie 3 times in the theater when it was out and I already rented it once from Blockbuster. I plan on getting the Blu-Ray version of this movie along with The Dark Knight Blu-Ray release in December.

Rating: 9.5 out of 10.

W: Enjoyable

Posted by Shane

So I went to go see “W.” Saturday, and I was very impressed with Oliver Stone very neutral view on George W. Bush’s Presidency. Now granted it was very fake in who the players were, but it gave a pretty accurate portrayal on what has happened for the past eight years in the White House. I recommend people see this movie and not just Democrats, but Republicans as well.

Rating: 6 out of 10.

Mulder and Suclly

Myself being an avid X-Files Fan, I went to see the movie this past Friday (again at midnight) and I was hoping to be pleased. Turns out I was not. They did not play play off the mythology of the original show, which was a key success. I believe the script was poor and that they didn’t really connect with the fans of the show. If I was the script writer, I would have made some major changes to the story. Unlike The Dark Knight, I suggest you wait for it to come out on DVD. This one is clearly a movie that you can watch in bed and still understand what goes on even if you fall asleep during the film.

If anything, I rather watch Season 9 of X-Files than this movie again.

Heath Ledger as the Joker

Heath Ledger as the Joker

I saw The Dark Knight (IMDb) on opening “early morning” at midnight (12:01am) and I have already seen it a second time. I plan on seeing it at least one more time at an IMAX theater. I was very bit impressed with with Heath Ledger performance of one of my favorite villains.

When ever I watch Batman on television, all other villains just bore because they are mundane and have no fun. The Joker is crazy and funny at the same time. Jack Nickolson’s performance of the Joker in the original Batman film was good at the time. But this performance of Heath’s is just amazing. Not only does he capture the meaning and style of the Joker, he really does become one with the character. Along with that, Nolan used an IMAX camera for the four action scenes that are in the film.

When it comes to characters in the new series of Batman movies directed by Christopher Nolan, everyone has played their role successfully that you believe that the characters are real people. I think the only exception to the fact was Katie Homes version of Rachel Dawes in Batman Begins.

The full review is below… and if you have not seen this movie do not read it yet. It is worth to see the movie without any knowledge of what happens.
