Catching up on movies

I've seen a bunch of movies over the holiday break.

Quantum of Solace
Zach and Miri Make a Porno
The Rocker
Sex and the City

I think I liked Quantum of Solace the best. Daniel Craig is pretty good as Bond. He has the world-weariness of a Steve McQueen. He's less interested in parties and the good life and seems bound more to an inner moral code than other Bonds, even if he kills with more impunity.

Bolt, the new Pixar vehicle, was oddly the most intense to watch. My oldest sobbed deeply through most of the second half. Bolt, the super hero dog who doesn't at first realize that his powers are faked for a TV show, must ultimately find the power to save his "person." From my son's viewpoint, all the wrenching setbacks along the way are not for the faint of heart.
