James bond

I did see the new James Bond while I was in Kunming. We had already heard it wasn't that good but wanted to see it anyway. Katja really likes the new Bond guy and I was really in the mood for a movie. We went to see it with Katja's friend Andi and his girl.

The movie was ok. It was about as good as I had expected after what I'd heard. The sideplot of the girl's revenge story was stupid and didn't belong.

The thing I don't like about the new Bond is that his face isn't very attractive (remember this is my opinion, so if you're a Daniel Craig fan don't hate me). I do enjoy the fast action, but these last 2 movies are too much action and too little womanizing. James Bond for me was always about the cool guy with the sweet toys that always got the girl and saved the day. He had to do all of these equally. I can't picture Daniel Craig being a womanizer. :/

I don't hate him, but I don't think he is as good of a balance as some of the previous James Bonds. I still think the Bond movies are way better than the Mission Impossible series though (die first and then be brought back to life lol right..)

I like the Bourne series the most out of the 1 man spy-like asskicking movies. I really should read the books. I don't have the best record with reading action books though. The reason I say spy-like is because if we didn't specify that category, I'd say I like a couple old school Charles Bronson or Chuck Norris or possibly even Clint Eastwood movies that I watched in the 80s and 90s more than Bourne.

Hey Jim have you read the Harry Potter books that you bought at Boeing years ago?
