Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Home a bit late, last night, and after a bite, we sat down to watch the Netflix DVD of October Sky, which was a terrific film; nicely shot, well-acted, and an interesting character study, about the beginnings of the Space Race, and a West Virginia kid who wanted to get to space...

We've cleared our Netflix stack for now, by watching Quantum of Solace, the newest Bond flick. Sort of acceptable, though it was much too frenetic. It'd be nice if they'd put a little more into motivations of Bond's ladies, but I expect that's too much to expect. Better than all of the Roger Moore movies; better writing than the Timothy Dalton ones; possibly better than most of the Sean Connery ones. I just wish they'd stay on a scene for more than a second or two...damn director must have ADHD.
