Review: Stranger than Fiction

Chick 1 says:stranger-than-fiction

In honor of April 15th, I’m posting this review of Stranger than Fiction.  I’ve not viewed it recently but I own it & it’s one of my favorites.  If you’ve already completed your mad dash to the post office, swing by the video store & pick up a copy.  Or come by my apartment & borrow mine.  I’ll be watching Lost.   Sshhh.  No talking.

Review: Quantum of Solace

Yummy Daniel Craig follows his debut as James Bond in Casino Royale.  Did I notice anything in the movie besides the ludicrously attractive Craig?  Surprisingly, yes!

What I Liked: The movie goes straight to the action, and it doesn’t let up.  Director Marc Forster employs the increasingly popular handheld camera to capture the fights & it really gets you inside the action.  The plot is driven in quick terse scenes, barely giving you time to catch your breath before you’re pulled into the next sequence of bone crunching stunts.  Things move fast & the ride is awesome.  The cast does a fine job & there are some very nice cinematic storytelling moments from both director & cinematographer.
