172/365 Boys' night

Mom headed out of town for a trail ride with her horse friends for the weekend, so Dad and I kicked back, got Chipotle for dinner, and rented an action flick.

Bond. James Bond. Quantum of Solace.

Yes, we're a little behind. This movie has been out for nearly a year.

Surprisingly short, at only an hour and 40 minutes, it was nonetheless excellent. It's a movie I'd like to watch again, if only because the story was quite complicated. In those instances, I find watching the movie at least twice is recommended. The first time through, you're just trying to keep up. The second time through, you can focus on more of the details, characters, and subtle plot points.

It took me three times of watching The Matrix from start to finish before I loved it and really got it.

In my opinion, and I've seen quite a few from the repertoire, these two most recent Bond films are the best. I'm not a fan of the goofy double entendres and weak female archetypes that plague much of the franchise.

Bond is still getting around, but at least the women he's choosing lately have had more intelligence.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens and 430EX Speedlite, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 400
