Quantum of Solace

The new Bond flick is finally out and i just had to see it last night, at the midnight show of course, now i am admittedly not the biggest Bond Buff, but i've seen a fair amount of them and so i guess you could say i know what to expect from a 007 movie but im always wondering what could they do next. 
Now i am sorry to say that i was not particularly pleased with the story line of Quantum of Solace, which with such an obscure title, was not thoroughly explained. Although i did not like the plot, nor did i understand it, i still really liked the movie. In just 1 hour and 46 minutes, my mind was blown with everything from intense Foot, Car, Boat, and Plane chases, sex, love, vengeance, extreme violence, and even subtle comedy. Aside from lacking
 a fluid plot line, Quantum of Solace had everything you could ever

As you may or may not have noticed, in Casino Royal, the predecessor to this newest movie, there was an absence in the typical Bond cast. Q, who is Bond's "supplier of gadgets," was not in both films of the new series, whic
h is quite upsetting. The amount of new and even fictional technology, fictional to the extent that the general public doesn't know it exists, incorporated in both Casino and Quantum is rather intriguing and my opinion, just flat out awesome, to see what the future is sort of gonna look like, and im pissed that there wasn't a quirky old man there to show us how everything works.

Now for the Bond girl. I was very happy with the selection of Bond girl for this movie. Although sometimes a very sexy lady is often associated with shallowness and stupidity, i think the Bond girl in this movie was smart, strong and beautiful. Olga Kurylenko, who plays Camille, is a fine addition to the long list of girls who played opposite Bond, and she joins the ranks among most recently, Halle Berry (Giacinta, Die Another Day) and Eva Green (Vesper, Casino Royal). 

Over all i enjoyed the movie, and it was worth the $10.75 and getting out at 2:00 AM. I think its safe to say that Daniel Craig is the best Bond yet, and i look forward to seeing him in a few more movies. One final point, the classic line, "Bond, James Bond" was not spoken in Quantum of a Solace.

Giving your social life some steam and a real boost can be quite a task if you don’t know where to look for the right kind of factors to provide you the much needed impetus. Demonstrating a soliloquy in the social sphere in a self-desired manner is one thing and failing to land a good date for those special evenings is another. Although the first kind is in no way a potential sucker for the paid wonders of a beautiful and talented date, the second group has been seen to rely heavily on the services provided by escort service agencies.
