In the theater, Sujan and I weren't sure if the boys actually enjoyed watching it. But the day after the movie, they kept talking about it. They know a lot of the details and keep asking if they can see it again. So ... if any of you out there in Listmaker Land want to take them, let us know!
The movie is pretty good. Not necessarily Pixar at its best good but it is pretty clever. I would have liked more than the three games that were featured but what can you do? John C. Reilly was great, Sarah Silverman was good, Jane Lynch was super fun, and even that Jack McBrayer doofus didn't bother me. The story was intriguing even if the dialogue wasn't as clever as it thought it was.
Still, I'll be glad to watch this again in a few months with the boys.
This is the best new Bond yet. Perhaps one of the best ever? To be honest, I have no idea. I didn't see any of them from A View to a Kill until Casino Royale. And I've barely watched many of the old ones since 1985 anyway. I just know that I have great memories of watching the old ones with my dad and I can't wait until the boys are old enough to start watching them with me.
I love the first "Is Bond dead" scene? I like all the being mad at M scenes. The charm is back. The humor is there. And then there is the whole Javier Bardem aspect. What a crackpot. I love that guy. And how awesome was Bond's response to Bardem's come-ons? Not played for homophobic laughs but rather a clever retort to a baddie. How many years before Bond takes a gay lover?
