Sunday Night at the Movies: Mermaids, A Comedy?

It’s been a long time since Ed and I were in a movie theatre together. Think 2008. Even so, that doesn’t mean that we haven’t seen any movies together. Back in October 2011, we had a month long, James Bond… «more»

James Bond 007 Marathon, #22 Quantum of Solace and Recap

Tonight we watched #22, “Quantum of Solace” (2008). The female lead was incredible, the plot was top notch especially the continuity with the previous film and there wasn’t a gadget to be seen. Not one. The theme song was something… «more»

Phone Calls and James Bond 007 Marathon #9

This morning, while Ed and I were in the kitchen together (read on and you will see how this point is important), we got a call on the home phone. This is not unusual as our home phone number is… «more»

James Bond 007 Marathon #7 and Crayola Crayon Maker

Initially, I was going to give this movie a “9”. Yes, I liked it that much. Then, Ed reminded me that Pierce and Craig are sure to bring the high ratings. Then, I remembered that I gave “From Russia with… «more»
