Notes from the Manager
Okay, so if you're not at all familiar with the new Bond movie, you might not get that what Jason and Kurt are doing is freerunning through the theater. The first action sequence in Casino Royale is an exhilirating chase between freerunner Sebastien Foucan and Bond (Daniel Craig). Check out the trailers for a few glimpses. For that matter, the whole movie is terrific, if a little tiny bit slow near the end, where the filmmakers needed to shoehorn a semi-believable bit of romance in too little time and came up a bit long. (It was a double-edged sword; I'm just saying.) Anyway. Loved the movie, particularly Daniel Craig's "stone cold killer" take on Bond (to quote my friend Pete), which bodes well for the future of the franchise.
The trailer for Zodiac, which preceded my Bond screening, was also pretty stunning. It looks like it's got a hell of a lot stronger story than David Fincher's last effort, the slick, glorified B-movie Panic Room. I am hyped.
