007 is alive and well

Deb and I have been gone for almost two weeks (more on that later). But while blowing through Houston last Sunday, visiting our friends Kevin and Jo, we made time to see Quantum of Solace during its big opening weekend. Loved it, loved it, loved it. I’m still convinced that Daniel Craig is the best 007 since Connery, that Judi Dench is brilliant as M, and that together, these two are magic. A few quickie thoughts about the movie.

First, this is not your daddy’s God & Country James Bond. This new, relaunched series is both anti-establishment and anti-imperialist. Bravo!

Second, Quantum’s nod to Goldfinger (you know the scene I’m talking about) was both staggering and inspired. Genius.

Finally, if Quantum is the new, 21st century version of Smersh or SPECTRE, that’s very cool. I’m dying to see where this plot thread goes.
